Thursday's game versus Golden State: Playing for a playoff spot [not Portland]

So, here is the situation:

7     Dallas     45     26     .634
8     Golden State     43     27     .614
9      Denver     43     28     .606    

If Denver beats Dallas, and Golden State loses to Portland, Denver is in 8th.

Golden State is playing for something to prove - a playoff appearance. Every game matters for them. Dallas, meanwhile without Dirk, is also playing for a playoff spot. If they lose on Thursday, they will be only 1 game ahead of Denver in 7th.

Of course, the ideal scenario is Denver loses, Portland wins, but this is a real test for Portland, too. This will be a playoff intensity game, and if Portland wants to be successful next season, they will need to learn how win these games.

Of course, this learning experience all depends on if LaMarcus and Roy are playing. Without them, this game means little. Not to mention, this game is on TNT, which means the Warriors have a ton to prove.
