For the first time this year, the Warriors visit Sacramento. And for the first time this year, the Kings are going to try to take a win from GSW Hoops. (Not to imply they haven't tried to win the last two matches...oh, who am I kidding?)
PG - Shaun Livingston 1, Mike Bibby 0. (Actually, it's probably like Mike Bibby 15, Shaun Livingston 1, but I live in the moment.)
SG - That's two below-average games against the Clippers this season. Which is strange, because at LAC was his 20-point breakout game last season.
SF - Ron Artest belongs in a Clippers uniform, I'm telling you. Damn you Geoff Petrie.
PF - Kenny Thomas actually had a decent game. But Shareef Abdur-Rahim still had a superior outing.
C - Brad Miller is playing well... on offense.
PG - Baron Davis has been excellent this year. And the Warriors are .500. Keep dreamin', though, Oakland.
SG - Jason Richardson doesn't seem to be the best fit in Nellie's offense. That's a bit unexpected.
SF - Matt Barnes is a starting forward in the NBA. Discuss.
PF - Mickael Pietrus had 26 pts, 7 rebs, and 4 stls last night against Boston. Gulp.
C - Andris Biedrins > Darko Milicic. I'll keep saying it until someone agrees.
It's even. I think the Kings can pull this one out, just because we all think they can't. When in doubt... pick the opposite of what you think you should.
INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT NOTE:
The Clippers leave for a road trip on Monday. They'd like to not have Corey Maggette at that point, as it is a fairly important trip. Think they might concede a concession Geoff Petrie wants this weekend? Hmm?
Golden State? Oh god.
They'll just run us off the court.
Hope is for naives.
(Yay, I finally resorted to inventing a word!)
Enjoy the game, please.
