Pre-Game Jitters: Mavs

In their last game, horrible as it was, the Warriors showed a few positive developments.  Morrow came off the injured list.  Curry came off the respirator. Tolliver got an NBA contract and responded by looking like an NBA power forward.  Biedrins had his best game of the season.

Pre-Game Jitters: Thunder

Pre-Game Jitters: Mavs

Vlad Rad is the latest Warrior casualty.  Nellie stated post-game last night that he is shutting Vlad down indefinitely until his achilles tendon heals.  So fingers out, everybody.  It’s Dallas, scene of the 6-man massacre, so let’s count what we have left.             Continue reading

Pre-Game Jitters: Rockets

The Warriors are in Houston tonight.  The Rockets have struggled badly after a hot start to the season.  They are 4-6 in January, and have lost 4 out of 5 games on their current home stand.  Their problem has been putting the ball in the hole.  With Trevor Ariza and Shane Battier at the two and three,  the Rockets are perhaps the only team in the league that doesn’t have a natural scorer at either of the wing positions.  Their effort to make Ariza into a  go-to guy has been a failure:  He is shooting a miserable 38% from the floor, taking 15 shots a game, and 30% from three, taking 6 a game.         Continue reading

Pre-Game Jitters: Thunder

The Warriors are gettting +8.5 against the Thunder, and I have no interest. That’s what we’ve come to.  That’s how far the Warriors’ effort has slipped since Monta injured his ankle.  And now that Monta has been passed over as an all-star, and dreams of individual glory are no longer available to fuel his effort, it’s possible that there is another reason for his lackluster play since returning.  Like depression.     Continue reading

Pre-Game Jitters: Stephen Jackson’s Return

Stephen Jackson is returning to the Oracle with the Charlotte Bobcats.  No doubt the Warriors faithful will be letting him have it.  But I would not boo him myself if I were at this game.  I have a very strong admiration for Jackson as a basketball player, that was not diminished by the actions he took to separate himself from the Warriors.     Continue reading
