2012-2013 Game 49 Preview: Thunder Play Warriors Without Bogut

Warriors....Warriors...WARRIORS.. - William Bennett Berry

The Warriors are 4-1 with Bogut in the lineup, but got crushed by the fast-paced Rockets. That should tell you something about how they'll fare in transition against the Thunder.

Today's a total sick day for me. It's terrible that it came on the day of my favorite two teams playing, but that's how it goes sometimes. Random thoughts about tonight:

-Andrew Bogut is good, but the Thunder can definitely hold their own in the paint, so I don't think it'll be too much of a factor.

-If either team has a good night from three, they're almost guaranteed to win.

-Slow pace favors Dubs, fast pace favors Thunder.

-Stopping offensive boards can really hamstring the Warriors.

-Hopefully, the Thunder won't give these guys too much space on the perimeter.

-I hope I don't throw up in my seat.

Prediction: Oklahoma City Thunder 109, Golden State Warriors 106.
