You know they are on the road for Memphis and Chicago (Bulls are a second night of a back to back). It is not going to be that easy.

I hope we make it in the playoffs to where we face the Clippers or Spurs in round 1. I prefer our chances against those 2 teams, rather than Thunder or Grizzlies.

If we're playing well enough from here on out to get into the playoffs we should also be playing well enough to be able to do damage once we get there.

The trick is staying healthy from here on out. With a team as old as ours it won't be easy.

We have to start winning a lot of games... We haven't had a confidence building win streak all season. We have had some small win streaks but often we've won many of those games by just a few points. These types of wins don't instill much fear in our opponents and until we do start winning games more comfortably winning any games at all is going to be a struggle. Teams shoot with tons of confidence against us because they don't fear us. The more we win the easier the rest of the wins will come imho... (Just a theory anyway)

If Portland,Utah,Detroit beat them no way we should expecting less
They have huuge interior problems,getting outrebounded almost 2 to 1 in some games(that would be one of our strongest points)

If we stop their fast break and close out on their shooters.....we got this,simple as that

Not to mention that the Heat will be on 2nd night of a back to back(GSW first game) and on their 5th game of their western conference trip


Not saying it's a guaranteed W(although it should be),but for damn sure,we shouldn't mark it as a L on the schedule already

I've expected more all season and look what happen ha! Of course we can win this game but I'm sure they will bring their A game against us. I don't take much stock in their losses. We all know what the heat are capable of when it counts. That being said, I think we have a better shot at Miami then Chicago.

They still have no go to scorer. I'm more confident that we will beat them than Miami.

we gotta get in that 6-8 seed mix

no way we're catching 4-5th seed warriors and grizz, just too many losses piled up

ideally, i'd still prefer to stay on the clips/SA side of the draw instead of the thunder

unless of course, clips managed to take the 1st seed from the thunder, then 8th seed is the goal

I think 8th seed is the most we can hope.
