Warriors Weekly- An Unprecedented Game Five, the Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: The insanity off the court last week transitioned off the court with the firestorm surrounding Clippers owner Donald Sterling. After two tough losses including a 40-point blowout in Game Two at the Staples Center, Mark Jackson fully embraced the smaller alternative lineup as Draymond Green replaced Jermaine O'Neal, and the Warriors had their best game of the series by far with a largely c ...

Warriors Weekly- How Game One Changes the Series, the Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: An absolute whirlwind, likely the biggest roller coaster week of the entire season so far. It is crazy to think that the overtime loss to Portland was just eight days ago. In the intervening time, the Warriors locked up the sixth seed by beating Minnesota and then the backups won the final game of the season in Denver. Unfortunately, the Minnesota game was overshadowed by the news that An ...

Warriors Weekly- Assessing the Regular Season, the Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: While the game to game results were clearly disappointing, this week may have served the purpose of yielding the best possible playoff path for the Warriors as long as they take care of business over the final two games. After another extended break, the Dubs started off with a disappointing home loss to the Nuggets on a Kenneth Faried fadeaway that followed Steph’s floater. It was anothe ...

Warriors Weekly – What Seed the Warriors Should Want, The Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: This week featured a shocking juxtaposition of the beauty on the court and the strangeness off it. The Warriors rebounded from last Sunday’s depressing home loss to the Knicks with a huge overtime win against the Mavericks. The likely blown goaltending call towards the end does not cheapen the result at all since NBA games feature so much scoring and so many tough calls that isolating any ...

Warriors Weekly- The State of the Race, The Week that Was, and The Week to Come

The Week That Was: A strange string of five off days ended with arguably the best home win and worst home loss of the season. After losing Andrew Bogut to a pelvic contusion that will likely keep him out this entire week, the game against Memphis looked like a justifiably unlikely win. A strong team effort brought them back from an eight-point deficit and Stephen Curry carried the offense across the finish ...

Warriors Weekly- #KeepJim, the Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: Potentially the least surprising week of the year other than on the injury front. Despite missing Andrew Bogut (ankle) for one game and Andre Iguodala for all three (right knee tendinitis), the Warriors got clean wins over the Magic and Bucks and a disappointed but expected loss against San Antonio. The bench play in the first two games warrants some concern since they forced extra minute ...

Warriors Weekly- Freeing Draymond, the Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: Well, that certainly was not the way I expected a 2-2 week to happen. The surprisingly smooth victory over Dallas and follow-up loss to the Clippers on the tail end of the back-to-back went about to form, and the quick lead against the Cavs fit the mold as well. That huge first half lead evaporated as a result of poor defense and uninspired offense as the Cavs ended up with a shocking nin ...

Warriors Weekly – The Suddenly Advantageous Golden State Bench, the Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: I said last week that this would be one of the biggest stretches of the entire season. Fortunately, the Warriors delivered with quality performances that set the table well for the next few weeks. Beating the Pacers in Indiana should qualify as their second-best win of the season and it was great to see the bench play well in the second half before Coach Jackson left them in too long afte ...
