Tank, continued + Ekpephenomena + KaChing!: Thunder 115 Warriors 114

If you want to know why the Warriors lost this game, you need look no further than their GM, Joe Lacob.                                   Continue reading

The Wrong Man: Mavericks 112 Warriors 106

This is a very good Dallas Mavericks team.  They are definitely a better team than last year’s squad, that got blown out on their home floor by a 6-man Warriors squad of rookies and D-leaguers playing all-out Nellieball. They might even be a better team than the 67 game-winning, #1 seed in the NBA that Don Nelson blew out in the playoffs, playing all-out Nellieball. The reason is Tyson Chandler. He gets up and down, and does a lot to erase the defensive deficiencies of Nowitzki, and Terry, and Monsieur Beaubois, and Senor Barea, and the ancient Jason Kidd…

Magic: Warriors 123 Magic 120

I wasn’t planning to recap this one, and I’m still not going to. Not enough in the tank. I just want to say a few words about this great game, that was made even more magical because I was seated at half-court for it, with my feet on the “parquet.” (Hey, Joe Lacob, how about bringing that over from the Celtics!) It was one of the best experiences as a fan I’ve ever had.

No Style for Young Men: Nets 94 Warriors 90

You’re exactly right, dear reader, there is simply no way that this Nets team, featuring the Lopezasaurus, Sasha Vujacic and Anthony Morrow should have been able to hold the Warriors to 90 points. Don Nelson would have put up 120 points against this slow as molasses and completely out-classed lineup with his eyes half shut.                                                                           Continue reading

Notes on Al Thornton

That lineup at the end of the second quarter — Lee 5, Vlad 4, Thornton 3, Ellis and Curry — was +4 in 4 minutes, and will be very special going forward, I can see that.  Very glad that Vlad was used exclusively at 4 (+14 in 16 minutes). The Warriors were rewarded with some great Vladdy defense headlined by a couple of blocks.                                          Continue reading

Dead Men Walking: Sixers 125 Warriors 117

It’s getting difficult to make sense of what is going on during Warriors’ games currently. So many agendas are being worked out, so many little dramas. Biedrins taking a back seat to Udoh’s development. Stephen Curry sitting out an entire fourth quarter of a close game. Working Al Thornton, and a radically different style of play, into the rotation.

It is fair to ask at this point whether the Warriors as an organization are even trying to win basketball games.                                           Continue reading

Grade Joe Lacob

If you’re interested to know feltbot’s grade, check out the Celtic’s recap.

F is for Fail: Celtics 107 Warriors 103 + Al Thornton + Grading Joe Lacob

Once again, I did not expect the Warriors to walk into Boston Garden and come out with a win.  But once again, I am beside myself with HOW they lost.  Tell me something, Joe Lacob.  How did the Celtics win this game pulling down a measly 28 rebounds, to the Warriors 39?  Can you answer that?  How about you, Keith Smart?
