Warriors Weekly: Staying Healthy Is The Main Priority

The Week that Was: After All-Star Weekend, the Warriors got some much-needed time off. Their first game back was against the Spurs and it may be Golden State’s most important single win of the season. They beat San Antonio for the first time since their 2013 playoff series in dominating fashion, holding a twenty-one point lead after three quarters. From there, the Warriors had a completely understandable le ...

Warriors Weekly: Important NBA Deadlines Are Approaching

The Week that Was: With five games in a week and four games in five nights, the Warriors had quite the challenge despite a general lack of quality competition. Losing against the Hawks was certainly disappointing but the overall week showed Golden State’s viability as the top team in the West for the regular season. They took four of five despite facing two back-to-backs and four road games. With a 3.5 game ...

Warriors Weekly: The Dubs & Hawks Collide On Friday

The Week that Was: Considering they went 1-2 during the week, it would be hard to classify it as anything other than at least a mild disappointment. The Warriors could and should have won the game against the Bulls then got outplayed despite having their full starting five against the Jazz. They may have been looking ahead to the next day’s tilt against Phoenix, which the Dubs pulled out despite a lackluste ...

Warriors Weekly: Dubs Dominating On Both Ends Of The Floor

The Week that Was: Another 3-0 week, this time all home games. A dominating start-to-finish win, a second half closeout against Sacramento and a surprisingly close game against a Boston team that has regularly played the Warriors tough in recent years. Oh yeah, and Klay Thompson did something. The Soapbox: The Double I have been making this point regularly on my appearances on Ted Ramey’s KNBR 1050 show (Th ...

Warriors Weekly: Avoid The Spurs At All Costs

The Week that Was: Depending on your perspective on the Oklahoma City game, this was either a very good week or a great one for the Warriors. Last Tuesday, I talked about the challenge of a road/home back to back immediately followed by a trip to Texas. Coach Kerr ended up making the decision to sit Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala against the Thunder and the Dubs actually kept it somewhat close against OKC ...

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 ...
