Golden State V Toronto Preview
Wow what a nice road Trip by the Warriors. Had it not been for fan favourite J-Rich having an eventual and expected dominating game against us then the trip would have been a huge success but 3-1 on the road and winning 6 from the last 7 is still something to be proud off. With the last 20 regular season games in sight we're still in 8th and only 5 games behind the 1st place Lakers. With the Dubs exercising Nellie's contract even the management is on the ball (sorry for the awful pun). Without Chris Bosh who's expected to miss the Raptors West coast swing Toronto might not be as scary as thought but during the last meeting when the game tipped off at the earlier then normal time of 10.30 AM Pacific time there were two things that struck me.
:The Raptors shot 2-20 in the 4th quarter. I doubt with sharpshooters like Barganani, Kapono or Anthony Parker that will continue
: TJ Ford was dominate litting us up for 29 points, 9 dimes, 6 boards and 2 steals. Other then Kapono might be the player that could cause the most damage.
Golden State not only need this and every win so hopefully the same agression that was on the Road trip will be on force tonight.
Pietrus has a monster game 10 points 12 rebounds
Ellis goes for 24 points
Kapono is the Warrior killer
