I said this before but the Suns will give the Spurs more trouble imo. The Grizzlies will get swept just like last time or lose in 5. They have been manhandled by the Spurs this season. It hasn't been a favorable matchup since the Spurs have acquired younger talent in Kawhi Leonard and more big men like Splitter.

Ideally its:

Griz/Mavs vs Thunder

and

Spurs vs Suns

Suns would give the Thunder a lot of trouble too. I don't trust the Mavs defensively.

Think we might already get help from the Rockets as far as the Spurs go, 3-0 so far against San Antonio.

memphis can still mathematically finish SIX!!!!!!

1.gsw loses its last 3

  1. Memphis beats the lakers and the winner of tonights phx/Dallas game, and loses to the loser.

3.phx beats sacramento.

6,7,8,9 finish with 49 wins all, memphis has the greater win percentage in marchups with the other 3, they're sixth.

Bring it on bears.

This is why that OKC loss was so costly. The Thunder have looked shaky down the stretch of the season and had a good chance to drop another game. If we hadn't spent three quarters barely trying, chucking bricks, and committing church-league level turnovers in a must-win game, we'd be the second seed by now.

I wouldn't say it's "so costly"... Mavs have played us tight every game and Memphis always present matchup problems. The way I see it, we get a better 1st round draw but lose home court for the 2nd. Pretty much a push.

Wow, I can't believe some of you guys would rather have Portland over GSW. They are the same team basically except GSW is more injured and has a clown for a coach. Also, we hate these guys and they hate us so it'll make the games much more interesting. Bring it on!

GSW is not a toss-up. We will be heavy favorites by the books and that is accurate. We're a much better team. We beat them badly twice this year and got screwed on another game. They blew us out once but Paul wasn't playing so it's not the same team. We're practically fully healthy and they are injured. Bogus is hobbled right now (as usual) and Lee is a shell of himself. Their coach is a hack (which isn't necessarily good for us since he will use bush league tactics; at best, instigating fights to get our players ejected, and at worse deliberately head hunting). They will probably get hot for a game or two but we have the best perimeter D in the NBA so that's not something we can't gameplan. IMO this is the best 1st round matchup for us. But they have to win another game because Memphis is still in play.

PS. Why does topbuzz have this idiot spellcheck system? I can't even add words to the dictionary.

The Mavericks would be the best team for the Clippers to face. They lack the speed and quickiness to contain the Clippers offensive. The Mavericks offensive won't be able to keep up.

I want to start out by saying I'm an advocate of GSW and Mark Jackson. Mark Jackson has done a very good job for the Warriors. They used to win 25 to 40 percent of their games, and now they've made the playoffs for 2 seasons. I guess that's Mark Jackson's fault? To go from 30 percent to 60 percent in a couple of years eh? Anyways, I wish nothing bad personally for you Clipper fans. You guys seem great. But when it comes to basketball, I want to make it clear that we don't like each other. And we are coming to beat you. Keep in mind we have as good as a road record at you and the reason our home record has been worse this year was because we lost to too many bad teams. Fortunately you guys are not a bad team, so GSW won't get lackadaisicle.

I see a bunch of fear in this thread. Fear to face GSW. And I see other posters saying that they aren't afraid of GSW. Don't you realize that when people keep saying they aren't afraid, it means that they are actually afraid? Because if you weren't afraid you wouldn't have to remind or convince yourself that you aren't. Think about that. But I want to say that I love beating the Clippers. You're tough, but we play GREAT against you!! We've won 5 out of the last 8 match ups and the reason I say the last 8 match ups is because these last 2 seasons are when we became a playoff team. We've frustrated the Clippers so bad, that they have to keep pointing to that one game where Griffin was kicked, or that one game where Paul was hurt. We have won the majority of the time against you. And if a ref makes another phantom call that costs you the series, you still can't use that as an excuse.

I think we're going to beat you, I know we will. Deep down I feel that Clippers fans know that even if they were triumphant against GSW, they would be too tired to win in the 2nd round. But GSW has nothing to lose. No expectations. We gonna play CLippers like it's our championship. There is no other team we want more. We know we can beat LAC because we have done great against them. We beat them regularly and that's why the Clippers don't like us. It's not because of the dirty play. It's because we've won and dirty playing has came with the winning. Deep down you know that.

So don't get offended. I don't wish anything bad on your children, I'm not gonna tell you you have a small pe*** size. But we are coming to get you. And I hope you bring it 1000 percent. Here's a good chant for you Clippers fans. I'm ''NOT AFRAID....'' - Eminem

The record shows the Clippers have done better in the regular season. But in the playoffs it's a different animal. Look at last year as an example. And you probably think you're a different team, but how do you know your guys won't get hurt? One thing LAC lacks is mental toughness. Once they break down it's over. They don't have the fearlessness it takes to win a championship. And you're in for a tough fight, one of the hardest of your lives. The same can be said for GSW, but GSW is not afraid. GSW is fearless.

And one last thing. Keep this civil. If we beat you ( I know we will, I just know it) please give me my respect when I come back. Because if we lost, I would give you credit. But do me one favor. When we win, please don't use refs as an excuse. Please don't use dirty play as an excuse. Please don't use any of those excuses. Because the last 2 years, I have only heard excuses every 5 times that we beat you. No MORE excuses! No more! I don't care how we win or what it takes. The days of excuses are gone. You can make excuses or survive, you can't do both. Which one will it be? Winning or complaining about why you choked? Don't be offended because I don't want you to be. I like you as a person, but want to beat you as a fan. We will win this series and I guarantee it.

Fail. Lol... but you're not afraid right?

So you praise Mark Jackson for the change but still want to pretend this is the same Clippers team from last season, regardless of a new Head Coach, Redick, Barnes as starter, Collison, Granger, Turkoglu, Big Baby, Dudley, Bullock. 5 of 8? You're talking about last season? Ahahahaha!

Also you say keep it civil but choose words like "choke".

Don't be surprised about the reactions. Looks like trolling to me.

Repped High Quality Post

Very nice passive aggressive rant there. stone

First of all, I can't like you for the simple fact that I don't know you so using that as your feeble disclaimer to troll is just weak. Not mention that using a Eminem quote is even weaker but hey, at least I know who I'm dealing with. Second of all, Anyone coming here talking trash as if he has a place in the Warriors locker room, or sits on the bench deserves no respect. You're just a fan that sits and watches games of your favorite team...That's it. I'm not going to come at you the same way but I will address your little rant.

I think the Warriors are a lot weaker than they were one season ago. I was one that said once you guys lost Jack and Landry, you guys would not be as good. I was right. Jack was the glue guy in the 4th quarter that helped you win games. He literally won you games and kept curry from turning it over late in games. You guys lost that. Landry was also vital late in games with his mid-range. Iggy is no shooter. Lets not mention how Harrison Barnes doesn't look like that shiny toy from last year. Your team is in trouble and you know this. Last season's Warriors were kinda scary but not this team. Like I said, Jack was the real unsung Warrior and now he's gone. Steve Blake is no Jack.

I'm not going to guarantee that we will win but I am certain we will. The season series could have been a sweep and we both now that. I think your mistake coming here and ranting away is that you think your warriors are the same team you had last year. Even Mark Jackson knows this, otherwise, he wouldn't have sent his agent inquiring about the Clippers' coaching vacancy in the off-season. Very Happy

"I want to start out by saying I'm an advocate of GSW and Mark Jackson. Mark Jackson has done a very good job for the Warriors."

Even though he tried to bolt to the Clippers?

"They used to win 25 to 40 percent of their games, and now they've made the playoffs for 2 seasons. I guess that's Mark Jackson's fault? To go from 30 percent to 60 percent in a couple of years eh?"

Vinny del Negro went from 30% to 70% in a couple of years... and threw in a division title to boot, but he was let go for a championship coach, so... there's that to consider.

"Keep in mind we have as good as a road record at you and the reason our home record has been worse this year was because we lost to too many bad teams. Fortunately you guys are not a bad team, so GSW won't get lackadaisicle."

As good on the road, much worse at home. Check. All that tells me is that your team has to get the f**k away from their fans (ie: YOU) to stand a chance.

"I see a bunch of fear in this thread. Fear to face GSW. And I see other posters saying that they aren't afraid of GSW. Don't you realize that when people keep saying they aren't afraid, it means that they are actually afraid?"

So saying "I'm afraid" means you're afraid, and saying "I'm not afraid" means you're afraid? Tell us... are you afraid to face the Clippers? Don't get caught in your own little trap, now.

"The record shows the Clippers have done better in the regular season. But in the playoffs it's a different animal. Look at last year as an example. And you probably think you're a different team, but how do you know your guys won't get hurt?"

We don't... but that question coming from the fan of the most injury-prone frontcourt in basketball, and one of the most pathetic benches, is pretty funny.

"And one last thing. Keep this civil. If we beat you ( I know we will, I just know it) please give me my respect when I come back."

Why would we give you respect? ...Do you intend on personally beating the Clippers? ...Is that you, Stephanie?

I may decide to respect the warriors players if they can pull off the impossible (especially if they can do it without relying on Mark Jackass' bounty system), but why in hell would I respect some wanker who had nothing better to do at 4am than troll another team's fan-site because he couldn't stop crying when his team lost the one game that could have provided them with their only escape from a nightmare matchup?

Enjoy the series while it lasts... which won't be long. Still... at least you'll have a new coach next season. That'll be exciting, right?

Whoah! A lot of defensive responses. But I'm glad I got your attention. Yes we are coming for you. I'm glad that you back up your team. But you're in for a long series. But if and when we win, will you give me my respect and apologize? You're saying we have no chance now. So if we win, you better kiss my feet and listen to everything I say. Deal? Be a man and admit that anything can happen. You'll see. I'm the guy that told the Dallas fans in 07 that we'd upset them. I'm the guy that told the Denver fans we'd upset them. I'm the same guy that is telling you Clipper fans that you're in for a surprise and you better respect me if we get you. That is all. Like I said, I don't have anything against you personally. On the court, I want to beat you. Off the court, I take you out to dinner. But you're crazy if you expect me to fall over like a dog. You better respect me if what I say comes true. Don't be a hater.

Because I did the same against Dallas in 07 and against Denver last year. I just get incredible joy upsetting my opponents teams.

Of course off the court we're friends, but on the court I have to do this to you and tell you what's going down. It is pure ecstacy

to watch my team take away all your hopes and dreams and watch you lose face. That's what fans are for.

Keep in mind that both of those teams were more confident than this one. If your team loses, it's going to get

laughed at a lot. GSW on the underhand are big underdogs and nobody expects them to do anything, but when

they do they become the darlings of the NBA. You'll see.

What do you mean by "we are coming for you"? You mean the warriors are coming to L.A to play them cause they didn't win enough games to get home court. Not only are you naive, you're delusional too. You're just a fan with a lot of time on his hands that thinks he has a Porsche to compensate for his small pe*** size. You're driving your car in our neighborhood cause having the car ain't enough.

By the way, since you were "the guy" that told everyone the warriors were going to beat them, were you also the same guy that told the Spurs fans you were going to be swept? Just curious since you're good at guessing.

What is it with these warriors fans coming here? They must all have small penises. wink

Answer the question.

What was your prediction last year against the spurs miss cleo?

What was your prediction against the jazz in 07?

I guess your predictions only work in the first round?

Dallas or memphis can still over take you guys, win 50 games first and then we will talk. You guys have lost two close games in a row, talk about chokers. What happened game 1 last year against the spurs? Collasol choke.

Talk about heath..... are you sure mr glass ankles is going to last? Clippers are a new team. Cruise though the regular season and going to put a real hurting on you guys in the playoffs.. Your team is pretty bad. When are you going to realize that? Even your coach knows it.... He was trying to leave your team for a real contender... the Clippers.

1 win or loss and we make it. We had to lose last night because you would have beaten Portland to ensure you play them.

We are going to play you. We have put ourselves in the position to, so don't go thinking something that is not true.
