On opening night in Oakland agains the LA Lakers the Golden State Warriors looked like future NBA Champions.

On Thursday night on TNT they looked this like this...

Not to be overly superstitious, but maybe pre-game Golden State of Mindcast = win? ivanbe- Let's do this!

Keys to W's Getting the W

1) No More Turnovers

I am still haunted by those 3 Blake Griffin breakaway dunks IN A ROW off turnovers. Please. Stop.

2) Clean the Glass

With the front court players the Warriors have they should never get dominated on the boards like they did against the Clippers. That needs to change tonight.

3) Attack the Kings Backcourt

On paper this is one of the weaker backcourts in the association. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson should be able to dominate.

4) Big Bench Minutes from Barnes

Nearly 34 minutes combined playing time for Draymond Green and Marreese Speights doesn't seem like a good recipe for success. Hopefully Harrison Barnes can step up and give the Warriors a lift off the bench. Barnes playing the 4 for spot minutes off the bench with Jermaine O'Neal manning the middle could be an interesting look.

Update 11/2 8:29am: Unfortunately we're down to 4 out of 5 keys to this w:

5) No More Turnovers

Seriously. Please. Stop.

Warriors vs Kings Picks

I haven't played fantasy basketball in about a decade and it shows. Let's see if this does the trick...

  1. Andrew Bogut: Hoping for a big rebounding night.
  2. John Salmons: Potential Warrior Killer.
  3. Andre Iguodala: Digging the 11 dimes on Thursday night.
  4. Jermaine O'Neal: His D down low will be critical and hopefully there's some good minutes off the bench.
