Just imagine if the Warriors had a hot tub time machine to go back in time, prevent their current injuries from ever happening and have a squad filled with power forwards! After last night's game vs. the Lakers, boy do we need them! The Nuggets are in town and I get to be in attendance for the first meeting between the two teams this season. The Nuggets are coming off a win Saturday against the Nets and have been up and down lately alternating between a win and a loss. The Warriors are struggling having lost 4 of 5 and are coming home from a difficult loss against the Lakers and a tough loss to the Knicks at home.

Time to turn it around Warriors!

The question is, how do you rebound from an ugly game against the Lakers? Who’s going step it up off our bench? Who's going to produce at power forward? How do you slow down someone like Carmelo Anthony or Chauncey Billups?

Welcome home Warriors, we’ve got your back! We’ve seen some crazy wins at the Oracle Arena and I’d love to see another one tonight! We’ve got 2 exciting teams tonight and I'm hoping for a miracle win since four power forwards are out!

The Good

  • Our guards are healthy!

  • Denver is without Chris Anderson and

    Kenyon Martin who are both out with injuries. With our lack of big men, this should help us out a lot.
  • Al Harrington is in town and I'm looking forward to throwin' down some thunderous "boos"

The Bad

  • We need power forwards

  • We got killed last night by

    Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom in both scoring and rebounding exposing the fact that we need POWER FORWARDS!
  • Carmelo Anthony is coming to town. Can our guys slow him and his 24 points per game?

  • Nene is coming off a season-high 22 points against New Jersey on Saturday, I'm sure he's hungry for more against our depleted front court.

  • Somebody in Denver's going to have a career night. Take a guess!

Predictions

  • Warriors win by 2 and shock the world!
  • Ellis and Curry combine for 50 points
  • Our guards make it rain from 3
  • Vlad Rad plays a lot of defense
  • I become Season Ticket Holder of the game and take home a signed ball from the player of the game, none other than Jeremy Lin!
