Wow, you getting way ahead of yourself. But anyway, unfortunately I think the Lakers will lose this one. They always have trouble winning in GS.

Lakers 90
GS 99.

Close one but we'll prevail.

Lakers 105, Warriors 95. If the Mavs can win in L.A., we can win in Oakland or wherever the heck G.S.'s home arena is.

anyone besides me find it a bit odd that we play the Warriors right after we play the Suns, and the last time we played the Warriors it was the game after we played the Suns. Sorry, I just discover that when I while I was working on the player matchups for this game

These games without Malone are going to be difficult for us, because he gives us a lot of our momentum and is a big inside presence for us, but if our bench steps up like it did against the Suns, then we will be able to win these few games without him.

Also, what exactly were the Warriors thinking when they released Parks, now they only have 3 big men (Robinson, Murphy, and Dampier), that means that Murphy will have to play A LOT & some at center. This problem is because Popeye, Foyle, & Eschmeyer are all injured. Can they make it any easier for Shaq if they tried.

Ok, now for the player matchups...I am going with a little variation in format, I have pics of the player instead of the name (tell me which yall like better)

Image vs. Image: Nick has had some good games against us in the past, hopefully Payton can do something about this though with his solid D. Both guys are flashy, running point guards who can pass and score. It should be fun watching the former Laker pg against the current. I expect Payton to limit Nick''s shots and force him to not be able to play his style of ball. Payton on the other hand, shouldn't have much problems penetrating to the basket because the Warriors won't have much in there, he will get some open looks at the basket, and plenty of assists (some being alley-oops) to the big fella.

Image vs. Image: J-Rich is a fast guard that likes to get out on the break, hopefully we won't allow him to get any highlight worthy dunks against us. The good news is he relies a lot on his inside game, and isn't really a good shooter, so if Kobe sticks with him, he shouldn't be a threat to us. He doesn't force a lot of contact when he tries to go to the basket, so we shouldn't get into much foul trouble contesting his shots. He isn't a good defender, so Kobe should have a relatively easy night. Kobe can penetrate, pull up and shoot or whatever he wants without much opposition from Richardson. Kobe wins this matchup, hands down.

Image vs. Image: George played well for us against the Suns and that's when Marion was guarding him, he also did a good job of defending Marion, and didn't let him go off on us. So if he doesn't leave Dunleavy and let him knock down wide open treys, then we should be fine. Jr. relies a lot on his outside shooting, so George takes that away, and he's not a factor in this game. Dunleavy also isn't a great defender, so George should be able to get his typical amount of shots, and should be able to shake this Mike off and put up a decent amount of points for us.

Image vs. Image: This game is key for Slava, he has to prove he can come through again and provide a solid performance in Malone's absence. Last time he started, he had a good night on offense and defense, he needs this again. It would be nice if Slava could give us some points (12 or so), but I would much rather him play solid D and not score at all. Cliffy ain't going to get a career night against us or anything, but if not guarded he will have a solid game (25+). Slava can't just stay inside, because Robinson will shoot behind the arc, from mid-range, and up close...so Slava has to play him close. If Slava can give us some defense against him, then sure Cliff will still score, Slava ain't that good, but his production will be limited to the teens, and he will get tired and not as useful.

Image vs. Image: Last time Shaq let Dampier have way to good of a game against us, that will not happen this time. Shaq will punish them, if he doesn't then there has to be something wrong. This matchup isn't even a challenge. Shaq will score, back down, rebound, and get alley-oops at will...and if you are going to tell me Dampier is going to stop him, then you must be crazy. Shaq will shut him down this time, not allowing him to get anything resembling an open basket. If Dampier has more than 6 or 8 points then I will be very surprised. Matchup goes to Shaq, no question about it.

I think its going to be Shaq and Kobe to have big games, about 50 point between them. I look for shaq to have a strong breakout game that he is due to have

Lakers 113
Golden State101

And thats the bottom line!!!
Todays minimum is yesterdays maximum!

jsm u stated that j-rich is NOT a good shooter? u are definelty wrong about that, he can stroke it, and he always hits his shots against tha LAKERS, he TORCHES us each time we play them...and robinson will also torch us...

u also noted they only have 3 big men(cliff, murphy and dampier)...but they actually have 4...and BRIAN CARDINAL is definetly tha sleeper of this game...WATCH OUT for this guy, and now that we dont have malone, this guy might torch us off tha bench, hes like another mark madsen only he gets more points than u woudl think...im jus worried about speedy claxton...hes VERY dangerous on offense...he torches tha lakers all tha time jus like boykins did last year....do NOT underestimate this warriors team...if we needed malone in one of these 3 games he is gonna miss, it would DEFINETLY be tonight's game...well lets jus hope kobe and shaq come up big for us

Jason Richardson can actually shoot...think of a game similar to Quentin Richardson...funny that they're both Richardsons...problem is that Jason needs to improve his mid-range game, he's above average in three point shooting and of course we all know how we loves to attack the basket....great dunker too, although not the best of the lot at the defensive end.

Yes, and Fabfour, there's got to Brian Cardinal to watch out...10 points off the bench and shooting 52% FGs and 88% FTs that is just awesome for a guy I've always thought to be a scrub...but he plays with heart, although he can't do much other than shoot because he is so freaking slow....we need to outrun him and that looks easy.

Troy Murphy is back, just to let you know, and it wouldn't be surprising, jsm, to see Murphy start in place of Uncle Cliffy for tonight's game...he's been playing off the bench for 2-3 games now and I think that he's much better than Clifford, not to say younger....he rebounds way better, not even sure if Cliff can board, but when GS needs a veteran presence and someone who can make an impact shooting and defending, then they can go to Cliff off the bench. Don't expect big games from either of them though, even though the Malone-Robinson matchup has been fraternized due to Scott Williams' mean streak.

Nick Van Exel would like to bring it to his former teams, as I was just watching "Beyond the Glory" starring Exel, I saw his ferocity and he was really angry at being traded to a scrub team like Denver from the Lakers...now he can easily get his revenge and pour in 30 points and 10 assists.....and even worse yet, he's capable of getting those numbers. And we need to finish this game off...Exel will get a lot of screens to shoot so we need to beware of that and Payton needs to use his savvy to finish Exel off....ward the ball off him at crunch time, even yet, Lakers, don't even go to crunch time.

Mickael Pietrus will not play much but he's a cool player....I expect to see him make a defensive shield against Kobe if he plays...as a matter of fact he may play due to defense.

Don't let Erick Dampier fool you, Shaq---he's sort of underrated yet noticed this season and he may have another double-double, and he's a good shotblocker, so Shaq should get him in foul trouble early...they don't ahve Adonal Foyle back yet.

Slava most likely. I don't see why he wouldn't start Slava...

Also, we're all forgetting that the Lakers are wearing their throwbacks tonight!

So both teams are wearing their throwbacks? I'd better not confuse the two then, Golden State's uniforms look almost like our gold ones! :man10:
