Wow, what an incredible win by the Warriors against a Rockets team that I had all but decided they could never beat. I was so amazed that as soon as the game was over, I rewound the tape and watched the whole thing again.
This is what I believe happened: Quite obviously, this was Bogut’s best game of the season. But not so obviously, the Warriors coaches made a major adjustment on offense that was hugely effective in integrating Bogut with this Warriors team. And then there was Klay Thompson’s superb game going head to head with James Harden. Continue reading
Nothing like a couple of home games against wretched teams to cure what ails the Warriors. The Knicks without Amare and with Melo on one leg, and the Pistons without… eh, it doesn’t even matter who they were without. They’re the Greg Monroe Pistons. Soft as a marshmallow, and about as quick as one too. Continue reading
I’m referring, of course, to the Milwaukee Bucks. Continue reading
Did either of these two home wins against the wretched Toronto Raptors and Sacramento Kings inspire you with confidence? Continue reading
What do the Philadelphia 76ers have in common with the Golden State Warriors?
Both of them have over $13 million in dead center stinking up their benches. Both of them have GMs who were suckered like amateurs into giving away valuable trade assets for corpses. Continue reading
I’ll get to Curry in a moment, but I want to mention first that I thought these were two amazingly competitive efforts that the Warriors gave on the road against the Knicks and the Celtics, two of the better teams in the Eastern Conference, regardless of record.
Particularly given the fact that they didn’t have David Lee in either game. Continue reading
Ever see a performance like that one? 54 points on 28 shots. 11 straight threes. Midrange wizardry off the dribble. Driving layups finished with both hands. Perfect from the free throw line. 7 assists playing with a lineup of rookies, washed up vets, and backups. 6 rebounds on a night when they didn’t come easy (Tyson Chandler, 28). 3 steals. Continue reading
First off, let’s acknowledge that if the Warriors lose every remaining game on this road trip, it won’t mean much to their playoff chances. They already took care of business by beating the Spurs at home and the TWolves on the road. Anything more on this trip would be gravy, because once they get home again they’ll have one of the easiest schedules in the Western Conference down the home stretch. Continue reading
Once again Jarret Jack put this Warriors team on his back and gave them the inspiration to gut this win out. Came in with the Warriors on the verge of getting blown out of a 12:30 start in a February road game, immediately called his own number on three straight threes — burying all three — and dragged his sluggish teammates right back into the contest. Continue reading
The Spurs were quite obviously ripe for the plucking in this game. This was their 8th road game in a row, of their annual 9 game “Rodeo” road trip. They were on a back to back, having waxed the Clippers last night in Staples in an emotional statement game. Old man Tim Duncan is essentially playing on one leg, having just returned from a seriously wrenched knee. Kawhi Leonard has a sore knee that forced him out of the previous game. Stephen Jackson was sitting out, having just returned from a personal tragedy. Continue reading
