Golden State v Milwaukee preview
Tonights a statement game literally. After losing a OT thriller to the best in the East the Magic despite shooting horribly the Warriors now have the second game of a three game homestand before heading out to LA on Sunday. Tonight the Warriors play against a Milwaukee bucks team who's fortunes have changed quite significantly since last year. After a 28-54 record they not only got rid off Terry Scott and hire Coach Krystkowiak but they managed to draft Yi Jinlan despit the bay area movement and have put together a nice 8-8 record. They also have Michael Redd who if he gets hot could spell trouble because of his abiliy to hit Threes because of our awful rotation on a Zone defense see the Pistons game. As for Yi despite playing in a predominantly midwestern city that has a low number of Chinese people he has perdictably settled in and as of today is avergaing a tidy 9.9 points pergame. Whether he;sll be better then Yao is far too early to tell but he's developing early signs. Him and Beans will be interesting to watch buu other then that I don't see anyone on the Bucks apart from Redd causing us a huge threat. The rotation has to be quick and I hope the effort on Rebounds and Defending we showed during the 6 game winning streak is there.
I also forgot to mention the Bucks are a poor road team at 2-6 with their second win last night against the Clippers but back to backs are painful for all teams so the Warriors should run tonight. Put Jackson on Redd and I can't wait to see how the Bucks improvise
Jackson limits Redd to a dreadful shooting game
Biedrins posterizes Yi
Monta goes for 20 and 10
Warriors by 8
