Mavs Moneyball preview: See the future

Predictions:

  • The Warriors win the rebounding battle: Really, this has to happen tonight. The Mavs are not a particularly good rebounding team and this is the type of matchup that the Warriors have to show they can win.
    The Warriors get a big night from Carl Landry: It just seems that if someone is going to benefit from second chance scoring opportunities it's Landry, who is off to his best offensive rebounding season of his career.
  • Warriors win by 5: A solid rebounding effort and the Warriors finding ways to get easy shots while struggling from the perimeter earns them a win.
