The Warriors Should Play Chess the Rest of the Way

Three years ago, I wrote a piece for RealGM about how little we could learn about the team during the final month of the season. We are in a similar boat now. However, back then it happened because the team blatantly chose to tank to keep the draft pick that became Harrison Barnes while just three years later it comes from having a lock on home court advantage in a stacked Western Conference. While we will ...

Warriors Weekly: Should The Dubs Rest Their Players?

The Week that Was: It may not have felt like it during Wednesday’s surprisingly close win against the Bucks but this turned out to be a very good week for the Warriors. Even though the Mavericks and Clippers are not playing their best basketball at the moment, getting comfortable wins against them shows this team’s talent and makes it much harder for any team to catch them for homecourt in the Western Confe ...

Warriors Weekly: Staying Healthy Is The Main Priority

The Week that Was: After All-Star Weekend, the Warriors got some much-needed time off. Their first game back was against the Spurs and it may be Golden State’s most important single win of the season. They beat San Antonio for the first time since their 2013 playoff series in dominating fashion, holding a twenty-one point lead after three quarters. From there, the Warriors had a completely understandable le ...

Warriors Weekly: Important NBA Deadlines Are Approaching

The Week that Was: With five games in a week and four games in five nights, the Warriors had quite the challenge despite a general lack of quality competition. Losing against the Hawks was certainly disappointing but the overall week showed Golden State’s viability as the top team in the West for the regular season. They took four of five despite facing two back-to-backs and four road games. With a 3.5 game ...

Warriors Weekly: The Dubs & Hawks Collide On Friday

The Week that Was: Considering they went 1-2 during the week, it would be hard to classify it as anything other than at least a mild disappointment. The Warriors could and should have won the game against the Bulls then got outplayed despite having their full starting five against the Jazz. They may have been looking ahead to the next day’s tilt against Phoenix, which the Dubs pulled out despite a lackluste ...

Warriors Weekly: Dubs Dominating On Both Ends Of The Floor

The Week that Was: Another 3-0 week, this time all home games. A dominating start-to-finish win, a second half closeout against Sacramento and a surprisingly close game against a Boston team that has regularly played the Warriors tough in recent years. Oh yeah, and Klay Thompson did something. The Soapbox: The Double I have been making this point regularly on my appearances on Ted Ramey’s KNBR 1050 show (Th ...

Warriors Weekly: Avoid The Spurs At All Costs

The Week that Was: Depending on your perspective on the Oklahoma City game, this was either a very good week or a great one for the Warriors. Last Tuesday, I talked about the challenge of a road/home back to back immediately followed by a trip to Texas. Coach Kerr ended up making the decision to sit Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala against the Thunder and the Dubs actually kept it somewhat close against OKC ...
