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 ...

Warriors Weekly- A Potential Division Buffer, the week that was, and the week to come

The Week That Was: Enh, it was alright. I mean, if you are into four road wins (extending the win streak to nine) including beating a playoff team on another Andre Iguodala buzzer-beater and defeating the two-time defending champs on their home floor for the second consecutive season. One interesting thing from the week: David Lee led each of the four games in either scoring or rebounding this week- never b ...

Warriors Weekly – Meditations on #FullSquad, the week that was, and the week to come

The Week That Was: The week that gave us #FullSquad also marked potentially the best seven day stretch of the 2013-14 season thus far for the Warriors. A hard-fought win in Denver followed by quality wins at Oracle against the Clippers and Suns and finally an all-too-close overtime victory over Cleveland to start the seven game road trip. While the team had some rough patches in some of the four games, the ...

Warriors Weekly- Do the Warriors Need to Make a Move, the week that was, and the week to come

The Week That Was: Last week, I wrote that 2-1 was to be expected given the opponents. That happened but in a sort of unexpected way. Wins against the Pelicans the night before they brought Anthony Davis back and the Lakers shortly after they lost Kobe Bryant again made total sense. However, Coach Popovich and the Spurs pulled out the TNT game despite sitting Duncan, Parker, and Manu. The quality of play th ...

Warriors Weekly – All Hands on Deck, the week that was, and the week to come

The Week That Was: In last week’s preview section, I wrote that 2-2 would be reasonable given the tough home opponents. Well, it turned out to be 1-3 after disappointing losses at Charlotte and Phoenix and a winnable but justifiable loss at home to Houston. That said, the win against Dallas on a Steph Curry game winner (his first since high school, amazingly enough) certainly had some encouraging signs.   T ...

Warriors Weekly – What We Learned Without Iguodala, the week ahead, and more

The Weeks That Were: After losing Andre Iguodala in the Laker game, the Warriors had a tough 1-4 stretch of mostly road games to close out November. That run was punctuated by the encouraging but deflating loss at Oklahoma City. Playing weaker teams helped out last week as Golden State beat Sacramento and Toronto (in a remarkable comeback facilitated by the Raptors being terrible) followed by a loss in Hous ...

Warriors Weekly – The New Normal, a home sweep, and a tough week ahead

  The Week that Was: Three home wins that were all impressive in their own ways. The Warriors dismantled the Pistons early, leading to the rare sight of second quarter garbage time. Thursday’s game against Oklahoma City was much more exciting and Andre Iguodala’s buzzer-beater covered up some alarming tactical flaws that nearly cost Golden State the game in the last five minutes (I wrote about this for ...

Warriors Weekly – Mark Jackson’s Experimentation Progress Report and the four game road trip in review

By: Daniel Leroux   The Week that Was: After crushing the Sixers to take the belt and getting a nice all-around win against a quality Minnesota team, Stephen Curry’s bone bruise took precedence for the week. Steph sat against the Spurs but the rest of the team rallied pretty well and got closer than expected to a victory, losing by two even though in my eyes it never really felt like they would pull it ...
