Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Whether you celebrate it or not lets crack open a cold one and hope our playoff luck continues. After losing 6 straight due to injuries, the Warriors have a full squad back and are winners of 5 of their last 6 games. The Warriors are in 8th place and only 3 games behind Denver for 7th and 3.5 games behind the Lakers for 6th. With impressive wins against Detroit and Dallas, it looks like our starting five might actually be that good.

Tonight we face a team that has the potential to ruin our celebratory night. The Sonics are one of the worst in the league record-wise, but have enough weapons with Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis to put the hurt on. I think this is a great test for our team. Then again, I say that in every one of my previews. We could be over-confident and let this slip, but let's hope Nellie has this squad treating every game as a chance to reach the pot of gold.

Knowing a bunch of my friends are probably already too drunk to read this, I wish you all a safe and happy reason to act like a fool.

Vegas Odds: Seattle by 4 (as of 10:00 am PST)
Predictions:
*    Warriors by 9.
*    Rashard Lewis scores 30+.
*    Baron has 11 assists.
*    Jax and Pietrus do a decent job holding Ray down.
*    Ellis and JRich both have a highlight dunk!
