Open Thread - Warriors vs. Mavs

You telling me we can't beat this?

Warriors (W-L): 22-42

Mavs (W-L): 40-25

Tipoff: 7:30 PDT


Radio: KNBR

Remember when Mavs vs. Warriors actually meant something? Remember when we would waive the yellow towels and sport our We Believe shirts and try to drown out Dirk and their crew at every timeout? Feels like that was 10 years ago.

Tonight we can somewhat reminisce with the Mavs in town but here is what is on the line for both teams:

Mavs - Need to push up the playoff ladder to have a chance so this is a must win for them.
Warriors - Nellie needs to groom his young guns so this an opportunity to see how we fair against a good team.

Outcome: On paper it looks as though the Warriors will lose by a lot. I'm talking about double digit "lot". But here's the thing. The Warriors always bring their A game when playing the Mavs. I don't know what it is but we always seem to have an edge against them. I think it's the Nellie factor and I'm happy for it! I think we have a fighting chance but for superstition reasons I'll contradict myself in the predictions section. I actually believe.



  • Warriors keep the game close ... within 12.
  • Dirk starts slow but ends the night with 24 points.
  • Monta is able to run past Kidd and create 20 points and 2 assists.
  • AR disappoints me again.
  • 10% of the crowd wears their "We Believe" Shirts.


There is traffic on I80. The game is about to tip off and Monta is stuck in traffic. He’s 4.5 miles away but the highway is a parking lot. How does he make it to the game on time?
