Bulls are a better team on the road than at home so we have a big chance of winning. Also I hope Stephon curry Has an explosive game as he is mad he didn't make the All Star team. And I also hope David Lee is not slouch because he made the All Star team

No, they are not. That stat is a coincidence. Bulls are better at home and they put up better efficiency marks at home. They will likely improve at home and regress on the road.

by that logic every single player in the league should have a break out game following the all star game.... LOL players either made it or they didnt make it- lol and according to you either way they should explode hahaha.

That reminds me of fitz talking about opposing teams. If the team has won 5 in a row... the warriors should be worried cuz they are playing well. If the team has lost 8 of its last 10- the warriors are doomed because the team is looking to get out of a losing streak. its amazing they have 26 wins cuz every team either just lost or just won LOL- and either way the warriors are in for an uphill battle according to fitz. who cares if its the 14-27 hornets or the 33-9 thunder- warriors should hope they can compete with them.

That being said- The warriors have played the bulls pretty well the last 2 or 3 yrs. For some reason rose hasnt played well against curry very well.... so maybe the change to the bulls game plan from previous meetings with the warriors (NO rose) will help them. Im expecting a good game though.

No offense but he's right. The Bulls are a better team on the road than at home, 13-11 at home and 12-5 on the road. Beating up the New York Knicks and cryami heat on the road while losing to the Phoenix Suns and Charlotte Bobcats at home while they were on 5 and 18 game losing streaks.

The Bulls have to travel after this game for an epic showdown vs. the Wizards tomorrow night, so they might not be entirely focused on the Warriors. You guys should be good.

Guppy, you must like trolling me or something. The statistics are as clear as day yet you find a way to say that it is just a coincidence. You're basically saying that it happened by chance. But I guess if it ain't advanced stats you don't care or it is invalid.. efficiency doesn't mean squat if you lose.. and the Bulls have lost more at home than they have on the road. So who cares how efficient they are at home when they aren't winning..:facepalm:

I can confirm the Bulls have been without a doubt better on the road than at home this season. No deng to go along with obviously no rose will hurt alot. You guys have been probably my favorite team to watch outside of the bulls, really interested to see how you guys look if Bogut can ever get back to a high level. Good luck tonight.

Big Win. Curry will have a Karl Malone type post snub game and scorch the Bulls for over 40.

Warriors will continue their dominance of the East with a 4-0 road trip, start the quest for the 3rd seed.

this

It's a better predictor of future success. I am not saying we will not win this game, but to suggest they are worse at home than they are on the road is stupid, especially if you are only basing it on records.

Unless you think teams are as good as their records say, like the 11-5 Colts and the 11-5 Seahawks. Records do not predict future success, efficiency does. It's a fact. And it is shown through out the ages in every single sport, every single year.

you cant be serious with this post. efficiency is a better predictor of success than team record? so like...do the experts ever say they are efficient in determining how good some team will be?

"well based on last years record of 50-32, i predict they can go 50 wins again no problem".. nobody uses efficiency as an argue point. a better predictor would be key injuries, offseason acquisitions and previous record.

i mean the colts 11-5 record was inflated right? just like how the warriors were 48-34 and still sucked enough to not the playoffs? you make no sense dude.

Quite the game, we played terrible but man the officials were awful for both teams as well. I wouldn't say they gave a disadvantage to the warriors or anything, but all the moving screen/traveling calls were pretty bad. Boozer got hosed quite a few times.

When we were 7-5 our record was predicted to improve because of our efficiency.

When the Bobcats were 7-5 their record predicted regression.

Nuggets efficiency predicted improvement, it's happening right now.

Grizzlies started 14-3, but their efficiency predicted regression.

These all happened. Differential is the best indicator for future success. And if you were to take every team best to worst franchise record wise, their efficiency would match up with their expected record. This is the case in every single sport. A team's efficiency will always be more predictive than their current record.

The warriors showed no heart. They were bums. Lee is only thinking about the all star. Curry had no motivation. Warriors are no longer rebounding. And Nate dominated them. What a shame. Warriors had no passion abd probably partied. They never play good after playing good games.

LOL ya...it's tough though haha. He baits people so well at times. Yet, we all know he has no clue what he's talking about. Our guys put in a solid effort but couldn't hit shots and Chicago couldn't miss in the first half. We tried our damndest to get back into before half time and it squandered away. No big deal. We'll get after our next game.

This proves that we cannot hang with Chicago if that was our best effort. If the Warriors lose to The Bucks tomorrow, things are going to start to look shaky. Nate Robinson embarrassed us tonight and there is no reason why Monta can't go on fire tomorrow against us.

one game for the lakers.... and everyone knew they had a lot of very talented players. If they play .500 for the rest of the season, they are still atleast 6-8 games out of the playoffs. and them playing .500 over 38 games or whatever would be a huuuuuge improvement.
