Warriors Weekly: Re-Visiting The Four Factors Of Basketball

The Week that Was: A light week that certainly looked different now than it would have with their opponents at full strength. In the end, the Warriors finished off a perfect home stand with wins over the Pacers without Paul George and the Cavaliers without LeBron. The Soapbox: The Four Factors, Revisited In early December, I used this space to talk about Dean Oliver’s Four Factors, which tries to estimate d ...

Warriors Weekly: Draymond Green Is Seizing The Opportunity

The Week that Was: Nothing works quite like some home cooking. After dusting off the Sixers, the Warriors faced the Raptors who entered Oracle with the top record in the East. They left Oakland trailing the Hawks after taking a 126-105 beating. Some Warriors tried to tone down any talk of it serving as a statement game but I liked Mr. Triple Double Draymond Green’s take that any game against a team they cou ...

Warriors Weekly: How Good Is This Team Without Bogut?

The Week that Was: Using the weeks as measured by when this column comes out, this was likely the first of the season that could be classified as disappointing. The Lakers seemingly played their best game of the season and won going away in easily the most surprising result of the Golden State year so far. From there, the hope was for a rebound game against the rival Clippers and that looked possible until ...

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 ...
