Preview: Warriors vs Bulls
It's payback time. After the heartbreaking 1 point loss in Chicago last week, the Bulls visit the Golden State Warriors at the Arena in Oakland tonight. In a game the Warriors should have won and with some questionable officiating, the Warriors could not hold onto their double digit lead. This time around, with the home crowd out in full force, look for the Warriors to open up that same double digit lead and pull away from the Bulls.
After their rough 4 games in 5 nights, hopefully the Warriors are rested for tonight's game. It's tough to take a loss like they did Saturday against the Suns, losing by 15. This is a game the Warriors should win as they need to take care of their business at home.
It was good to see Baron's legs and back hold up for the 4 games in 5 nights stretch, even playing 39 minutes in the last game. That was a nice sight to see with all the questions surrounding his health.
I'm predicting tonight that Dunleavy finally breaks out and puts up 15+ points to go with a few boards and a few helpers. As much as we rip him, he's really not as bad as he's been playing and they need him to produce to be successful down the road.
Right now, with the Warriors at 4-3, if they lose tonight, dropping to 4-4 will be a disappointment given that they had a chance to be 6-1 at this point. They're going to have to learn how to win the close games and put teams away when they have the chance.
