    Default GT: Raptors vs. Warriors

    Boguts suposed to be back tonight. Hopefully raps can pull off an upset. Golden state has been great this year and adding bogut only makes them better.

    Discuss.

    I think we're almost for real, if we can pull this off.

    Ross>Barnes. Should be an intersting game boy o boy did this team make a leap after being so awful last season but it just goes to show what a franchise talent brings to the team and Curry is awesome GSW games are a good watch.

    If you havent seen Barnes play yet he plays very contained is the best way I can put it lol really lets the game come to him, He doesnt scream Im going to be a franchise guy to me.

    I really like watching the Warriors with all their shooters. Watching their home games is also really good, the crowds they get are amazing.

    if I remember correctly, there was a lot of rust when bogut first came back so im hoping against hope that he hurts them tonight if he does play, though he may just dominate us down low. GSW have been an exciting team to watch, I don't have a good feeling about this one

    I also agree that barnes plays very contained and disciplined (at least during the games ive watched). I like his game from what ive seen

    Been watching a lot of Golden State, and here are three important things:

    1. DO NOT, turn the ball over against this team. They are very good at running the open floor, & running the break.
    2. Contest every, single, shot. Curry, Thompson, Jack, Barnes, Rush. Especially the 3, don't allow them to get going.
    3. Get on the boards, don't allow Lee, Landry, and their big men to dominate the glass. They usually come out on top when they win the glass.

    Offensively, this should be a game where Davis, Johnson, and Derozan take advantage. Not great inside presence.

    Hopefully the Warriors' shooters have off nights and Johnson/Davis can feast against Lee's bad defence and Ezeli (assuming Bogut doesn't start, otherwise hopefully he's very rusty)

    Quite frankly, I like this. Gray will match up vs. a hopefully rusty Bogut.

    Probably no Lowry this game so maybe no crazy lead losses in the 4th? (Not that I realistically attribute that to him anyway)

    We had some crazy lead losses with Jose in there as well. We play good basketball, but not always for 48 minutes. Still a young team, hopefully repetition will help them become more consistent with the effort.

    Not too worried about Bogut, considering he's barely played and this is his first game back. Much more worried with Stephen Curry and David Lee.

    I mean young in terms of guys playing with each other. They are just realizing their roles on this squad, its not like an established team that has played together for a while, like many of the teams we play against.

    Plus those stats will be last years news fast when jose and Andrea goes. Our core is made up of players that are still maturing on the NBA stage. Mathematical averages in excel are not going to mask that reality.
