The Golden State Warriors take on the New Orleans Hornets less than two weeks since the last time they met. It was not so much Jolliebee as much as it was Queen B(ee), Lil Kim. Meaning? SCARY!

As you all remember, the game was relatively exciting. And the Warriors have been losing a whole lot of close ones, which means we get the best of both worlds: exciting games AND holding on if not improving (in theory) our draft position in the "NIT" tournament for the losers of the NBA.

There's no denying that we were thoroughly entertained by Monday night's loss to the Lakers. I don't think I've ever been so excited about a loss in my life. We continue to see Stephen Curry put on quite a show and was "Steve Nash"-like, as the ESPN announcers continued to compare him to. Monta Ellis joined the rank of "Kobe-stoppers" (non-self-proclaimed) like JR Smith. And, as Atma Brother #1 said to me, "When did Chris Hunter turn into Patrick Ewing?"

With that said, if we expect a loss tonight against the Hornets (which I ASSUME many of us would prefer), which Warrior(s) do you think will have a GREAT (or terrible) game and transform into another player, for just ONE night?

Darren Collison had a monster game last time... monster-like of Space Jam proportions. Emeka Okafor and David West were also part of the Mon-star committee that took advantage of our Warrior small-ball.

With Chris Hunter's career night last night against the Laker's twin towers, can we expect Chris Hunter to get more minutes? Will Chris Hunter finally convert the point-blank shots without getting blocked? Will Tolliver continue to provide his ‘look-of-shock' (hands thrown up in the air), every time he gets a blocking foul?


Tolliver: 4 looks-of-shock after committing several fouls

Chris Hunter: Gets 37 minutes of action and ONLY gets blocked twice!

Emeka Okafor gets 2 blocks, both against Hunter

Darren Collison puts on his own Steve Nash performance, 18 points (3 3-pointers) and 17 assists.

What are your predictions?

    Corey Maggette already gets to the free throw line like Dwayne Wade. Now he gets as many assists as him.
