April Game Streams -- Golden State Of Mind -- Jazz vs Warriors coverage

.

I guess this is where the rubber meets the road -- a tough game outside of our gym, against a playoff team that's playing pretty well right now. Yes, they look to be without Andrew Bogut and David Lee, but they've won games without them before. They may do it again as recently as tonight. The Warriors have 13th best offense by OFF RTG, and the 4th best defense by DEF RTG. They play at the 8th fastest pace, and as a result, their per game results are 103.2 ppg (10th best), and 98.8 ppg given up (8th best). They are injured, at home, and won their last game by the same margin as all of our wins in the last month x 1 billion. But I am not too fond of them (as I explained in the preview -- check the stream, it's right up there called "april game streams").

Anyway, we'll see what happens when these two teams tango. Warriors are aiming for the playoffs. The Jazz are, at this point, trying to play spoiler. (Spoiling their draft pick chances mostly)
