San Antonio Spurs (56-20) @ Golden State Warriors (31-45)


Projected Starting Lineups

Tony Parker -- Manu Ginobili -- Bruce Bowen -- Robert Horry -- Rasho Nesterovic


Baron Davis - Jason Richardson - Mike Dunleavy - Troy Murphy - Adonal Foyle

Spurs just got back from a very emotional win just earlier this morning. They should be exhausted and I don't blame them. That was the first actually good preformance from the spurs in while. Manu played more than 50 minutes last night and I highly doubt he'll be playing at all, and there is no word about Rasho's ankle yet that I know of, but I still put them in the projected starting lineups just in case they decide to make a special appearance. I'm still excited from last nights game. My head is still aching, my stomach is still turning, and my heart is still pounding. I could only imagine that it's the same way for most of you guys, but that game is behind us now. We've got to focus on tonight's game. If we lose, I wouldn't be too dissapointed because I expect us to; but if we win, I think we can safely say that the number one seed is ours :biggrin: .

EaZy Keys to Victory (Like the play on words type deal goin on? :biggrin: )

-Do not let Mike Pietrus do whatever he wants . He scored 28 pts (including a dizzling 6/6 3 pts) in the last game .

-Do not try to compete with the warriors offensively , they are just to good at it at the moment .

- Rebounding. Golden State never gives up on rebounds on both ends of the floor. The Spurs have to be prepared to block-out, because you can't afford to give such a high-powered offense multiple chances.


- Perimeter shooting. It's blatantly apparent that if we don't knock down jumpers, we can't win, especially on the road. I'm not sure if Manu is playing or not, but as a team we have got to hit some perimeter shots.


- Tempo. We have a much better chance in a halfcourt game as opposed to a full-blown shootout. This "Key" relies heavily on the first key (Rebounding), but if we can control the defensive boards and the tempo, we have a real shot at winning.


~*Special thanks to Koko and ballstorm for actually making these keys to victoy*~

Prediction: a loss, but an understandable one....as long as we don't get blown out too badly :biggrin:

Spurs: 86
Warriors: 98

The only date they gave just an estimate they made a while ago. Last update they had on Tim's injury said that they still hope to get him back by that day though, which was April 12th.

the only reason I don't think we'll win is because we just got back from a doulbt OT game earlier this morning.
