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.

David Lee Out For Season With Torn Hip Flexor

David Lee tore his right hip flexor in Saturday's loss by the Golden State Warriors to the Denver Nuggets and is out for the season.

While x-rays on Saturday were negative, an MRI on Sunday revealed the complete Grade 3 tear.

Lee was playing his first game in the NBA Playoffs after being in the league since 2005.

The Warriors are in their first postseason since 2007 and trail the Nuggets 1-0.

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
