Warriors (0-0) vs Lakers (0-0)

TV: NBATV

Tip-Off: 4:30 AM PDT

Blog Buddy: Silver Screen and Roll

Normally when I say we have an early tip-off I'm talking about a Sunday matinee game. This one takes it though. 4:30am on a Tuesday morning?

Anyone participating in this preseason open thread during the live game has some serious "Unstoppable Baby" cred. With loyal Warriors expats residing all across the globe, GSoM has always had community participation at all times of the day. This one will be interesting though. I'm curious how many live game comments we'll get here.

Time zone issues aside, it is incredibly cool that the NBA is turning the preseason into one big international festivity. There's been a good tour of East Asia and Europe. It would be fantastic to see the preseason action come to South Asia and Africa next season as well.

Predictions

  • Around 4:35am tomorrow in the midst of some seriously deep REM cycles, you'll start thinking about the Warriors.
  • By the end of the game there's more Warriors fans than Faker fans in Beijing.
  • Warriors by 11
