Apparently the Warriors have agreed to an 8 player trade with Indiana- here's the scoop: The Indiana Pacers reportedly have traded scorers Al Harrington and Stephen Jackson to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday in an eight-player deal that netted Troy Murphy and Mike Dunleavy Jr. ESPN.com, citing unidentified NBA front office sources, is reporting the deal, which also has guard Sarunas Jasikevicius and forward Josh Powell going to the Warriors and forward Ike Diogu and guard Keith McLeod going to the Pacers. I'm sure that the Pacers are happy to get rid of Stephen Jackson. The Warriors are losing a lot....

Yeah good chance that we will win this game because of their small lineup. But you cant take that for granted. Pretty even trade i think. I'd be happy to give away Harrington and Jackson if I was the Pacers. Stephen Jackson was a good player until he got a big head and left the Spurs. Ike Digou is a talented player. Troy Murphy is a solid player. Dunleavy has never lived up to his hype. McLeod and Powell are young, so you never know the outcome there.

They should have told the Clippers about this trade before it happened. We maybe could have gotten in on a three-way. But then again...its not a trade we need.

Ok...winning by 5 points with about three minutes left in this game. Against Baron Davis and a bunch of D-league players??? If this game doesn't show that the Clippers need to make a trade to bring in some new blood, then I don't know what does. Whether the Clippers go on to win this or not, the Warriors should not even be in this game at this point.

Ok...they ended up winning. But the Clippers should have been up by 20 and had their starters on the bench for the whole fourth quarter. They need to start playing A LOT better than this if they have any hope of making a run for the playoffs.

Great stats for the team...but this close of a game either shows a lot of heart by the Warriors or sloppy play. I think it was a combination of both. They obviously couldnt stop us much...but we didnt play much D either (as it seems). Ross and Brand were huge. Making almost all their shots. Cassell shot way way too much. Maggette and Mobley had a bunch of boards that made up for Kaman's apparent absence. Did he play much tonight ?? Luke Jackson made a 3, but also had 3 fouls. I guess that would be expected.

If we beat the Grizz next...we are still in a playoff hunt. If we lose, it looks pretty grim.

The game was closer than it should've been but it was mostly because of missed free throws by Maggette and the Warriors playing really hard and making a ton of their 3's.

And yeah Q Ross came up huge again- 24 points is his career high by far. I'm sure that Dunleavy was hoping that he had TWO Q Rosses to guard both Monta Ellis and Baron Davis. Towards the end there when Baron got hot Ross switched from Ellis to guard him and shut him down- even stole the ball from him a couple times. If Q Ross doesn't get into foul trouble he's an amazing defender.

EB was awesome- 11 out of 13 FG- are you kidding me? 11 boards and *5* blocks to boot.

The Clippers had 37 (!!) assists tonight- wow- I don't remember any other game this season when they had near 30. Cassell had 13 and Maggette chipped in with 7 which is pretty amazing. That shows you that guys are moving the ball- very encouraging actually- maybe the back-to-the-fundamentals approach by Dunleavy helped.

Big game against the Grizz coming up for sure- those guys are playing run-n-gun now and w/ Miquel's fellow countryman Gasol back it's going to be a tough test.

A win is a win, but the Warriors had absolutely nobody on their team.

The best news in that now that Dunlevy is traded, coach can't go for his "favorite" son. That's sure to add a lot of fire to the Clipper's trade rumors.

I've talked with Pau and he has told me that there's no problem and he will let the Clippers win...:-)Seriously I think that if we can't beat the Grizz we don't deserve to be in PO...They are playing without a goal or maybe be the worst team to get Oden...I don't know.What I can tell you is that Pau is sick of being a Grizzly...He is frustated playing for a loser team...more when every summer he plays with our national team, with all his true friends, where he enjoys playing basketball and enjoys winning.In my opinion he's not giving the best of himself because of his mind...

It's hard to want to win when your team continues to lose, year after year. The Clippers players of old times know that feeling. Besides (and including) last year's three and out, the Grizz have had a lot of bad seasons.
