I dont know. I watch them play a lot. Curry and Thompson might be the absolute best scoring backcourt in the NBA. Those dudes RARELY miss and they shoot a ton. David Lee is a really underrated player and is a perfect compliment to those 2. You would think that those 3 is all they have but there's actually more to them. Barnes has been erratic, but when he's on he's a tough guard. And honestly their bench is pretty nasty. Landry (who I wanted for our bench) and Jack give them instant offense and hustle on every play. Even without Bogut, I think they are here to stay

GSW are going to stay in the playoff hunt but they aren't going to stay at .600 and be gunning for home court without Bogut.

We get the 7th best record if Houston loses to LA.

Update:

Currently 7th seed.

Key games for 12/13/12

LAL VS NYK
SAS VS POR - (Only because I despise Portland with the exception of Lillard)

Key games for 12/14/12

It seems like all the Western teams fighting for a playoff spots have some "Easy" games for friday..take a look:

DAL vs TOR
LAL vs WAS
GSW vs ORL

Our game: MIN vs NOH

BOS vs HOU
UTA vs PHX
MEM vs DEN - Denver, GSW and Utah could be the 3 teams we're fighting with for the last 3 spots.

tough two weeks ahead of us right now.
14 @NO W
15 Dallas W (beware of Mayo in kobe Mode)(if Rubio is back we'll win this one)
17 @Orlando W (if not too tired)
18 @Miami L
20 OKC L
23 @NY L

i'm guessing 3 - 3

Our schedule is really getting more difficult in the next weeks.

We need to beat New Orleans tomorrow to have a good start to this tough stretch of games. Dallas should be winnable, too, but it's gonna be an ugly one. b2b wins are always ugly. :lol:

We really need to win the games we should win from here on out. There isn't a lot of room for error. We need 3-3 .

It's really good to see that we are actually in the playoffs with Rubio being out, Love shooting like a turd and all the other injuries. Rubio's going to cover up a lot of our problems..and allow us to see what we really will need.

It's really amazing if you think about it. Our starting 5 coming into the season

Rubio: yet to play
Roy: Has played just 5 of team's 19 games
Kirilenko: Missed 4 games
Love: Missed 9 games. Struggling on offense.
Pekovic: Missed 2 games. Struggling offensively

Only 3 players have played all 19 games: Ridnour, Shved, Cunningham

And yet, we came into tonight 7th in the West, and are possibly a game away from Rubio making his debut.

I think we can go at least 3-2 in next 5, if we see some Rubio magic. Why wouldn't Miami or OKC fall? Maybe even both. I think just Nicks one isn't winnable.

We are making the playoffs this year.

Write it down, ship it out. We are there.

Nothing like a loss like tonight's to keep you grounded. It's far too early for ANY playoff talk.

good point.
even though we hate to lose a winnable game, we can use this loss to ponder what the team still needs
in order to improve. even though we have a solid lineup, we still have a lot of work to do
