Warriors Weekly- The Welcome Addition of Steve Blake, The Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: A big week both on and off the court. The Dubs rebounded from a brutal loss to Miami going into the break with a trio of wins, two of which came at home against likely playoff teams. What’s more, all three were without Andrew Bogut (who had a negative reaction to a cortisone shot) and David Lee also missed Saturday’s win against Brooklyn due to the flu and apparently will not make at leas ...

Warriors Weekly- The Timetable of Contention, The Week that Was, and The Week to Come

The Week That Was: Two justifiable losses and a ludicrous win. Goran Dragic took advantage of a shorthanded Warriors team to get a nice win for the Suns and the Dubs vented their frustration against the hapless Sixers in a game brightened by Mo Speights’ career night. Wednesday was another candidate for Game of the Year as the Warriors came back from a huge 21-point deficit against the defending champs and ...

Warriors Weekly: Thoughts On The Trade Deadline, The Week That Was, And The Week To Come

The Week That Was: First off, welcome to the new regular day for Warriors Weekly! With the change, this was a shorter “week” than usual with only two games. Tuesday marked the single worst loss of the season since the Warriors got outplayed at home by the Charlotte Bobcats. Without drawing too much from any single game, it can be useful to remember that any NBA team, especially one that tries on defense, ha ...

Warriors Weekly – Ceilings And Floors, The Week That Was, And The Week To Come

The Week That Was: The Warriors pulling out the win against Utah totally changed the complexion of the week. It shifted from being two disappointing losses and a win against an exhausted opponent to a close but still disappointing loss and two wins- a substantial improvement. At the time, I felt that losing at home to Washington after having a day off at home may have been the worst loss of the season so fa ...

Warriors Weekly – The Expectations Game, The Week That Was, And The Week To Come

The Week That Was: More than anything else, last week serves as a perspective test. Functionally writing off the loss to the Pacers makes sense as they are one of the best teams in the league and a brutal matchup for the Warriors. However, the Pacers followed up their Oracle win with losses at Phoenix and Denver sandwiching a narrow overtime win in Sacramento. I do not put too much stock in those subsequent ...

Warriors Weekly- Lesson Learned?, the Week that Was, and the Week to Come

The Week That Was: The week started with two of the most frustrating losses of the year, falling at home to Denver by seven and in Oklahoma City by six. While each game had quality performances by opponents, each ended up being punctuated by Andrew Bogut missing major time in the fourth quarter- more on that later. Following those two defeats, the first half of the road finale against New Orleans made it se ...

Warriors Weekly – Lay of the Land for Mid-Season Acquisitions, the week that was, and the week to come

The Week That Was: Other than the challenge of a road back-to-back, the Warriors did pretty well this week. The loss against the Nets may be disappointing because it cost the team a small piece of history but it illustrated just how hard win streaks are in the NBA, especially when the schedule does you no favors. After that, the Warriors got a win against the Celtics that should have come much more easily b ...

On Stephen Curry Moving to Second in the All-Star Voting

Stephen Curry starting the All-Star Game should not matter. After all, it is a popularity contest and the guard ahead of him in the Western Conference voting is a first ballot Hall of Famer who will have logged 177 minutes this entire season when voting closes. Heck, Keith Smart used to play Monta that many minutes per night. On top of that, as great as he has been, Stephen Curry has not been the best guard ...
