Very true u have been saying this since the beggining of the season and now shouldn't change anything. I hate that were losing but this is one if the tuffest parts of the schedule also. I knew we'd take a dive sometime n the season it's all how we rebound from it. I have faith

I can appreciate what u iterated

I have a point or two as well... I think that schedule is overrated. How is that?

1. People are saying that this month is the toughest part of our schedule. But didn't we just say that last month as well? You soundin like Fitz now! or when you lose any game for that matter, you can say you were on the road, it was a back to back, it was the altitude, or the other team was just real hot! Btw, Bob Fitzgerald's absence has not helped. And the Warriors haven't won since the 9ers won the superbowl. Bad mojo, I'm telling you.

But anyways, didn't we just play a stretch of 12 tough games in a row? So we said that was the tough part of our schedule. Now were saying this is the tough part of our schedule. So that means that's it's either an excuse, or a cliche. Or it's really overrated. how can we always say that it's tough?

2. The Warriors lose to bad teams anyways. So it's not like we played this bad just because of the match ups only. I mean, we lost to the Kings twice. We lost to the Magic twice, and the Lakers twice. When we play the Kings and the Lakers when we are in the ''easy'' part of the schedule, we will still have the same match up problems because we see now that Bogut doesn't seem to solve our no man in the middle problem. I really don't know why that is. Maybe Lee is SUCH a bad defender, that it don't matter WHO you put next to him. That would be my only reasonable theory.

Close man. We go through tuff parts of the schedule. Every team has them. People say this is the hardest part if the schedule I think they mean as of right now this is the hardest part. But if u look at the schedule we play more playoff teams and on the road and back to back right now then we have all season. We haven't had many 4 game n 5 nights this year luckily. But now that we do we caught the rockets (which I think we win if they don't set a freaking franchise record for 3's). Then next night the thunder! Ok we're exhausted from that beat we took. Then the grizz (we never match up well with this team). Don't worry yes there is concern for injuries and maybe exaughtion cuz we have grinder out so many games this year. But the break is soon and will get much needed rest and most of our games will be home. Stay positive and don't freak out just yet

You are full of it. Remember when I said we were the 12th best rebounding team in the league? I lied. We are 4th best in the league in terms of total rebounds per game. I said 12th to test you, and you said they were reportedly 15th.

I got you. I now know that you purposefully, willingly, and maliciously make up things to illicit responses. You will be reported.

And for the record, the Mavericks are 14th in terms of total rebounds which isn't bad. This makes your statement about the Mavericks not being a good rebounding team even worse.

I am saying the Rockets are a better team than us.

rockets are not better than us. we are better on the floor everywhere except the shooting guard. Our bench is way better than theirs. Despite that one game from jeremy lin- steph curry AND even Jarrett jack are better than jeremy lin. A healthy bogut is way better than asik, David Lee is better than patterson.

They lost that game from a horrible game plan. ... and stubborness from mark jackson.NBA players can make wide open shots. With bogut in the paint, there is no reason to leave shooters to tripple guys driving.

did you leave out parsons and barnes on purpose?

no, but even if parsons is better than barnes.... he isnt good enough to cover up the fact that both jack and curry are better than lin, bogut is a lot better than asik, david lee is a lot better than patterson (even though patterson is having a good season..... and landry and jack are better than anybody on that bench.

The warriors have a better record with more road games and they havent had bogut basically all year. Warriors are better- look at the rankings every single week since the start of the season basically.

Parsons would have to be a top 5 small forward in the league to even start to cover up for all those other areas. Also- when its all said and done- barnes will be a far better player than parsons. It wont even be a discussion.

Also- if james harden is that great- wouldnt the thunder drop off a little bit with the loss of him?

James Harden is a superstar so it doesn't matter where we can close the gap. They have a better differential and higher in the SRS. The Rockets are better than us and have been.

That's okay though, as long as we can stay ahead of them.

No, because their young guys (Ibaka, Durant) are only improving. And they have a serviceable replacement.

Ok rockets vs warriors

Ive stated that i think warriors look better overall when looking at the rotation of each team. Now to look at the two teams.

Warriors 30-21

Rockets 28-24

Warriors have played 29 road games and 22 home games. From here on out, they will play 12 games on the road and 19 at home.

Rockets have played 26 at home and 26 on the road. They will play 15 each for the rest of the season.

Its worth noting- The rockets current road record is 10-16. They should win about 6 of their final 16 road games.

Warriors on the other hand are 14-15 on the road (including this last 0-4 trip... which isnt normal for them at all based on the rest of the season). Warriors will probably win 5 or 6 of their last 12 road games.

based on the road winning precentage and the home winning precentage of both teams.

Warriors are on pace for (14+ (.482 * 12) + (16 + (.727 * 19) or 19.79 + 29.82 = 49.61

Rockets are on pace for (10+ (.384 * 15) + (18+ (.692 * 15) or 15.76 + 28.38 = 44.14

I say the warriors finish with 51 wins and the rockets finish with 46 or 47. I think the addition of bogut will give the warriors a slight boost over the last month of the season. But its unlikely the rockets pass the warriors unless something changes for both teams. It would have been really nice for the warriors to go 2-2 on this trip though.

LOL btw- I really hope they make some adjustments on tuesday when they play the rockets. Even if the rockets are better than the warriors like you say Guppy- they are not THAT much better to be winning by 30 points.

Yeah, you are right that they aren't thirty points better than us.

Probably only like three points of five points better than us. Hopefully we win and we can establish ourselves as the sixth seed. If we lose we have a good chance of falling to the seventh seed, which is a death warrant.

not really- I expect a competitive game though. Since bogut will have a full week off, itd be nice, if they could play him 30-32 minutes or so on tuesday. Curry should want to rip jeremy lin a new one... a star player would not want to get shown up like that 2 times in two weeks. harden is a tough cover, but force him middle and hopfully bogut can be effective inside. Do not leave guys open outside... if harden can continue finishing over our bigs inside..... then start fouling. but do anything other than leave guys open outside.

Any word on jack, and why isnt ezeli in the rotation. I thought the return of bogut would help ezeli, but it looks like hes been forgotten about.

You're right... I'm not a "raw fan" (whatever the **** that means) because I had adult obligations that I fulfilled while celebrating my Mom's and uncles bday's by hosting dinner for them with my gf. You really are a fool ODP. Go get banned already!
