Golden State V Memphis Preview


It's hard to be fully optomistic at this time of the year but with the Dubs Losing 3 of our last 4 games and looking sluggish at best, we are a full game out of the playoff hunt with only 7 games remaining. We basically are in full panic mode right now. Fortunately one bright spot to tonights game is that the Warriors have won all encounters against Memphis. Right after two lacksadasical losses this game could't have come at a better time. Now I'm not trying to overlook the Grizz, but if we lose tonight consider us done for the year. We can't afford to lose any more games with Denver playing well and considering their next three games are against teams under .500 we better take tonight seriously.

With the emergence of Mike Conley Jr. and Rudy Gay teaming up with Warrior killer Mike Miller, this is going to be tough. If we play lackadaisical like we did against the Mavs, it's going to be a long game. If we are going to make the playoffs and win the majority of our remaining 7 games, we desperately need Jackson to step up. Unseen in the past 2 losses, he has to regain the leadership and take us to the playoffs. Monta and Baron couldn’t do it alone last game. Will Pietrus be back in time? I sure hope so.

Rudy Gay has 20 points 9 dimes
Monta gets 30
Jackson finally show up
Warriors by 8
