    I think you underestimate home court advantage.

    Only really matters if you end up playing the 7th games in a series. I personally rather play the first game on the road and won't risk wearing the starters out just to get that home field edge in the playoffs, that's for sure.

    Not if youre the Seattle Seahawks and rely on the 12th man to win you games. Pathetic.

We are already a lock to be in it, so now it's time to play conservatively to avoid risking injury to our key players, get our bench players more involved in all aspect of the game with extra PT so they are comfortable as a unit which is a big deal after the Clippers game ordeal because they will be counted on to sustain if not retake the lead once the playoffs begins.

    Accusing our starters of this or that because they are not playing is just stupid. If you were doing this behind our bench at the Oracle while our team was winning, the team will have you escorted out.
    Stylez (and apparently mackshock) will never understand this. Too reasonable. It's advantageous for us to be healthy going into the playoffs, preferably in the 6th seed. The 5th seed won't garner us home court so what's the point chasing a more difficult matchup.

    Really dude? So when did I say we should chase? I just said that HCA in general is a good thing.

    Ok yeah, with the loss to the Clippers to the other night, the 4th seed is pretty much a wrap. So why fight for the 5th seed and give Houston the advantage when we match up better with the Clippers?

    There's a chance a healthy Portland knocks Houston out anyways, but I'd rather play LA in the 1st round

    But we're not and we play just as well on the road as our record suggest. Did you miss the part where I do not want to risk wearing out our starters Mack? If we had learn anything from our last playoff run, we were basically tired and injured after a long grueling season and the Denver series. I wouldn't mind taking on the Spurs in the 1st round and out run those old vets out of their comfort zone for good and then our next opponent will certainly be easiler where we can recover and move forward.

    Especially when we got injured and was exhausted in that game 6 lost to the Spurs and now fans want to wear our players out by chasing the 5th seed?!? just crazy.

    Im not saying we should be playing all the starters 42 minutes, but considering we are a month away from the playoffs- I dont think playing the regular 30-35 minutes is unreasonable.

    and dont give me the risking injury thing. last yr bogut sat out for 50 games, he was limited to under 20 minutes for half of the 30 games he did play- he rested all summer and all spring before last season... and he still ran out of gas in the playoffs- despite playing against duncan (9 yrs older) who went on to the finals.

    Tonights game against clevland is kind of a must win. I know you want to keep guys healthy- but dallas and memphis could still catch us. we arent locked into the 6th seed. More importantly- Isnt it important to be playing your best basketball going into the playoffs? I mean you dont want to go into the playoffs losing 8 of 11 games. (I know veteran experienced teams have done it and been fine- but I think the warriors would rather feel good about themselves going in) Rick barry also says its best for 5-8 seeds to be playing as well as possible going into the playoffs. Ill take his word over yours.

    Ive learned that with the warriors- too many minutes isnt what leads to injuries. kalena azabuike got hurt in the 9th game of the season averaging less than 25 minutes per game 8 minutes into the first quarter of the game. Tim hardaway tore his acl in his second pre season game after playing no summer league and playing sparingly the first game. Andrew Bogut rested all summer in 2012 and still had to sit out extended time. If players are gonna get hurt, theyre gonna get hurt... as long as you have the guys out there, might as well play for the win.

    How do you let him get the ball? 1 cavalier in the midst of 4 warriors. Pathetic.
