It’s time for Feltbot to check himself in to rehab. Warriors rehab. I’ve fought through the pain of the cataclysm of injuries that have beset the Warriors since the pre-season. I’ve slapped a little tape on, taken a few Lagavulin injections, and trotted out my doleful observations day after day. But I’ve reached the end of my rope with this game. Corey Maggette out and now Monta Ellis injured again? I can’t take anymore. I’m taking a break from recapping games at least until we hear that Monta Ellis is OK and returning to action.
I will be putting up Open Threads if you care to continue the conversation in the comments section. I have greatly enjoyed talking hoops with all of you who have joined me here, and will gladly add to any discussion that arises. I just need a break from recapping.
I’ll start the ball rolling: A lot of positive things went on in this game before the latest disaster du jour: A strong emphasis on ball-movement, spearheaded by having Curry run the point. A huge step forward by Anthony Morrow, most impressively to me inside the paint. Small forward is his natural position in the NBA, despite his size. Another great game by Anthony Tolliver, that had me wondering how he got lost in the D-league. He has a real knack for rebounding, and a terrific basketball IQ. Both Beans and Turiaf finally rounding into shape, and finally running the plays.
That’s all I’ve got. I’ll leave the rest to you.
