The Bucks can not extend this losing streak to 7 games, especially against a beatable team....I say we win, but it won't be pretty....if we lose this one, I want to see the reactions of the JS writers....they really haven't expressed their feelings about what should happen this offseason....

90 Bucks
86 Warriors

Very nice layout. It's a shame that people don't post here enough to appreciate it.

I think the Bucks might have a chance to win this one. But, Golden State has been playing pretty well since they got Baron Davis. It will be a tough game, but I have a feeling the Bucks losing will extend to eight games, Golden State is playing too well right now to lose to a team of this calibre right now. If the Bucks somehow manage to defend the awesome backcourt of the Warriors then I think the game is theirs, but they have had trouble with perimeter defense all season so it could get ugly.

Nice game thread. The pictures scroll in from the side, which is cool. Unfortunately I think the Warriors will win this game.

Yeah...MADD props on the site. Other teams' sites could learn a thing or 2 from you guys.

That being said, B-Diddy and the Boyz from da Bay are taking this one. Beatable team? The Warriors are a different beast since Baron's joined the team. A win tonight will give the Warriors their first 10-win month in over a decade. Warriors fans are ESTATIC for that. I'm sure the team will be too.

Warriors 113
Bucks 101

Baron Davis is probably a top 3 pg in the league when healthy...the warrios will be a playoff team next year...If they didnt sign foyle or fisher to those terrible contracts I think that the warrior would be one of those teams that other ppl would envy...Unfortunately Chris Mullin is not as good a gm as he was a player.. Anyways , nice game by the warriors today, they will be a special team if davis stays healthy

Golden State has been hot lately, and they've won 6 of their last 7, including tonight...I think next year might finally be the year that their rebuilding process gets them somewhere.

So, Warriors won?
yes...Warriors won........

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Golden State forward Mickael Pietrus is on a roll lately, and he gives all the credit to new teammate Baron Davis.

Pietrus scored 21 points off the bench Wednesday night, his fourth straight game in double figures, to help the Warriors to a 113-109 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Davis, acquired in a Feb. 24 trade from New Orleans, led the Warriors with 25 points and 15 assists, including 16 points in the fourth quarter. The Warriors are 10-7 since acquiring Davis and have won six of their last seven games.

"He (Davis) has really helped get the ball in my hands," Pietrus said. "He's a lot of fun to play with and helps us all get good shots."

Warriors coach Mike Montgomery said Pietrus was benefiting from having Davis on the floor.

"He (Pietrus) is happy, he is positive," Montgomery said. "Baron is getting him the ball."

Davis said he is enjoying playing with his new team. Over the last past four games, he's averaging 27.2 points and 10.7 assists.

"We are getting better every game," Davis said. "I have a lot of confidence that this team is going to get better this season. I am feeling more comfortable, and guys are getting more playing time and making contributions."

Player of the Game:
They say Golden State has been a totally different team since acquiring guard Baron Davis, and he turned in a stellar effort in dismantling the Bucks. "It's what he's been doing all year," said coach Mike Montgomery. "He had 11 assists at half and we rested him a little at the end. He is awfully strong and we've been able to post him up."

Play of the Game:
In the fourth quarter, Golden State's Jason Richardson blocked a shot by Erick Strickland, saved the ball from going out of bounds, then took off and filled the lane on the fast break. Davis lobbed the ball to Richardson at the rim for a dunk and a 102-96 lead with 4:55 remaining.

Off the Bench:
Warriors guard Derek Fisher, who sank a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer in the overtime victory over Milwaukee last week in Oakland, made a buzzer-beating three-pointer at the end of the third quarter to give the Warriors an 84-81 lead.

Statistics Sheet:
The Bucks (six) and Warriors (five) tied an NBA record for fewest combined turnovers in a game. Dallas and New Jersey set the mark of 11 on Jan. 20, 2004.

Not a bad loss at all, the Warriors are going to be a damn good team next year. I have a question for Buck fans: Would you rather lose and get the top pick or would you rather make a desperate run at the eighth spot?

The Baron is back and he's hot again. Bucks may as well as start fighting for a good draft pick, youve got nice talent, a good draft can put you over the top. The warriors are just too hot right now winning 6 of their last 7 with B Diddy.
