Radio: KNBR 1050

Shall I say it again? Do we really need to discuss this? Is this the most IMPORTANT game of the year? I say it is. Two games out of 7th (Clippers) and 8th (Nuggets) place, the Warriors only have 9 games remaining to make ground but have one of the hardest schedules remaining.

As fans, we hit a typical bipolar week when we lost to the Spurs by 37 points and then put on the most exciting win against the scorching Suns. Just when I hate the Warriors, they reel me back in.

So today we face the Grizzlies which should be an easy win, especially at home. However, having split this series so far, it's evident that the Grizz could come out and give us a hard time. Even with the worst record in the league they somehow are able to match up against us pretty well. We have a full strength squad so that should give us the upper hand. If we lose today, consider us out of the playoffs!

Anyone going to the game? If so we need a full analysis when you get back!
