Warriors Weekly: The David Lee Conundrum

The Week that Was: Another quality week for an elite basketball team. Losing to Memphis ended the win streak at an astonishing sixteen games but there is no shame falling to a quality opponent on the road, especially when playing without a key piece like Andrew Bogut. After closing the short road trip with a loss, the Warriors returned home to Oracle and proceeded to play two more strong games. The first ha ...

Warriors Weekly: Beating Teams In Different Ways

The Week that Was: In what looks like Golden State’s best week of the season so far, the Warriors won three games under difficult circumstances. Even though the Rockets had plenty of their own injury problems, adapting to the loss of Andrew Bogut created problems early that the Dubs eventually overcame with a small lineup to pull away with a win. Starting out a road trip without both of last season’s starti ...

Warriors Weekly: The Essential Andrew Bogut

The Week that Was: Even though the Warriors played four times since my last column, this truly boiled down to one game. Chicago played their full complement of players and the United Center had all of the intensity of a big game. Despite all that pressure, Golden State rode a career high in points from Draymond Green (including seven threes) while forcing an astonishing twenty-two turnovers to extend their ...

Warriors Weekly: The Renaissance Marreese Speights

The Week That Was: Depending on Andrew Bogut’s health, this week could end up being a matter of perspective. Friday’s win against the Jazz may have been Golden State’s best performance other than the demolition of the Clippers. Utah could not get anything going against the Warriors’ defense and those stops fueled a decisive win. The team pulled out Sunday’s game in Oklahoma City after losing ten in a row th ...

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 ...
