Warriors Weekly: How Good Is This Warriors Team?

The Week That Was: It would be difficult to classify this past week as anything but a rousing success. While losing to the Spurs always hurts (especially after the playoff defeat in 2013), there is absolutely no shame in losing to the best team in the NBA when they are on their game. I asked Coach Kerr after the loss whether he could walk away from a defeat like that with anything positive and he said that ...

Warriors Weekly: The Steph Curry Effect

The Week That Was: You could call this asterisk week for the Warriors. They dominated a discombobulated Clippers team, leading to an epic Doc Rivers post-game press conference. That was the first game this season that represented what this team should do when they control a game early- keep the pressure up but still get plenty of rest for the starters. Saturday’s game against Houston did not prove much sinc ...

Warriors Weekly: Dubs Start Strong And The Looming Luxury Tax

The Week That Was: It would be hard to script a better opening week for the Warriors. Beyond going 3-0 by beating three conference opponents, they earned those wins behind strong performances from Klay Thompson and the rest of the starters. While the Splash Brothers will get the headlines because of their scoring exploits, Andrew Bogut’s defense played a major role in the road wins against Portland and Sacr ...

Warriors Weekly: The Summer That Was And Klay’s Extension

Welcome to another year of Warriors Weekly! Every Tuesday, I will do my best to reflect on the past week, look ahead and shed some light on the important issues surrounding the team I have covered most of the last five years. The Summer That Was: Despite the absence of a draft pick or much salary cap flexibility, Bob Myers and company certainly made it a compelling summer. It all started out with the firing ...

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 ...
