Golden State Warriors vs Chicago Bulls Preview: Using the GSoM Wayback Machine- Michael Jordan + Scottie Pippen beat downs and Jonathan Givony right about Joakim Noah in 2007 NBA Draft

Last time the Warriors played the Bulls it was like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen dominating Andrew DeClerq and Todd Fuller. Let's hope it's different this time around. Also, what if the Warriors didn't pass up Joakim Noah for Brandan Wright back in 2007?

Last time the Warriors squared off against the Bulls the results weren't pretty.

See: Golden State Warriors 87 @ Chicago Bulls 103 - Bulls outscore Warriors in the 1st by 18, 'nuff said.

It was almost like a 90's era Warriors vs Bulls game where Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were dominating the likes of Andrew DeClerq and Todd Fuller. Oh the memories...

We should expect different tonight. As #GSWStats has pointed out Stephen Curry is ON FIRE right now:

That's some incredible shooting and absolutely fun to watch. Every time the basketball rolls of Steph's finger tips I just expect it to go in. It doesn't matter if it's a pull up jumper, a catch and shoot, coming off a screen, or a drive to the bucket. I just know it's going in.

The Bulls are also coming off a 42 point (yes, FORTY TWO POINTS!) demotion courtesy of the Sacramento Kings. I think our friends up North really enjoyed that one: Either someone put hallucinogens in my water or the Kings blew out the Bulls 121 to 79

The Bulls are also in a bit of a road funk having lost 5 straight away from the United Center. Coming to Oakland to play at the Roaracle can't be something the Bulls are looking forward to right now. If you're one of the golden ones who'll be in attendance tonight, I'm sure you'll do your best to make the Bulls feel "welcome."

On a final note, I'll go back in the GSoM Wayback Machine to dig up this quote from Jonathan Givonyat DraftExpress:

"I think the Warriors are going to rue the day they passed up on Joakim Noah for Brandan Wright" (10/8/07)

Givony was right. Man was he right.
