Golden State V Minnesota Preview
Not one of those games that immediately leaps out at you but the most important stat that leaps out tonight is not whether Monta will mantain his recently terrific perofrmances (History shows he does well against the T-Wolves) or can Jefferson and Mc cants have another big day but if Golden State can do something they have been unable to do all season long and post up a winning streak longer then two games. In sevaral examples like at the start of the year the Warriors came off a nice victory in Houston but were blown out in Dallas or against the Spurs. Against Minny hopefully the streak will end but you just never know...
Despite Monta averaging 29 points between these two so far as usual whenever these two meet up Al Jefferson and Mc Cants are always in line to have big games as they did in the previous two meetings. Hopefully Croshere with his big brutal body can withstand Jeffersons talented low post game. He may miss more Layups then the avergae fan but he does make his 3's and with Biedrins injured he does provide the only hope to contain the muscular big man. After the j-Rich trade the trade exemption hasn't been used so hopefully between noq and the deadline Mullin will use all of his wit to get a big man such as Kurt thomas who would give us much more freeing space to compete wth the Carlos Boozer's of the West. Until then?
