Mark Jackson

--------------------------------------------

The Warriors make their first playoff appearance in several years this season. Mark Jackson has them back in the dance. Although I think they have a nice young nucleus of players (led by future All-Star Steph Curry), I dont believe they play playoff basketball. The Warriors' defensive efforts are lackluster, although they can score with anybody. It is for that reason I don't give em much of a chance to win this one over a balanced Nuggets team. Golden State will steal 1 game, then bow out in 5.

Could be an interesting series, but I see the Nuggets winning this in six.

Two teams that really get up and down the court at a fast pace. It should be an entertaining series to watch, but I believe that the Nuggets will just have a bit more fire power.

Didn't watch the game but saw HB dropped 8. Lol.

Predicting a 30 pt game from him this series.

Ty Lawson IMHO is the best UNC player in the NBA. Green is a close second.

I picked golden state not because I really think they will win but a lower seed will win at least one series this round and I don't feel confident about Denver for some reason i can't put into words.

Its gotta suck to go 8 years before you get in your first playoff game, and then get hurt in your first one and miss the rest of the playoffs. I updated the Warriors new starting lineup.

Luckily for the Warriors Carl Landry is a very good backup. It's still a major blow, however.

Steph along with Bogut and Barnes have proven a lot of people wrong in this series, including me. If they can close this thing out, it'll be huge for their confidence going forward. Steph is proving himself to be a SUPERSTAR in this league when healthy. Golden State up 3-1
