Big game tonight. Big game.
The Warriors tip off at 10:30ET on TNT against the first-place Phoenix Suns. The Bolt-Boys (sounds like a … nevermind) have lost two in a row, but still sit a game and a half out of the final playoff spot occupied by the Los Angeles Clippers.
With the ClipShow idle tonight, a victory tonight would position the Warriors a game behind. The Clippers then have Sacramento and Portland back to back, while the Warriors don’t play until Sunday evening, when they play the worst team in the league, Memphis.
A lot is riding on this weekend. We’re going out on a limb and saying that if the Warriors win tonight, then they’re going to get that mythical playoff berth. If not, well, then their playoff hopes will end up like Nikki and Paulo on Lost: buried and dead. In that order.
