The Warriors are looking to change the course of their franchise this season. The team coached by George Karl nemesis, Marc Jackson, will try to make a playoff push with a cast of new characters. Gone is Monta Ellis (traded last season). New to the team: exciting rookies Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green, Carl Landry, Jarrett Jack, Richard Jefferson (sort of new, newish?), Andrew Bogut, and training camp invitee and former CU standout Carlon Brown.

Some pundits are thinking this Warriors team will make a playoff push this season, there are reasons to be hopeful in Cali – we'll see what they look like tonight.

Enjoy the game …
