The Warriors’ Revived Offense

To say this season's early going has been a definite success for the Warriors doesn't ring true.  Not when Andrew Bogut has played less than half the team's games and the shooting struggles of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have kept the offense from reaching its potent potential.  But saying otherwise doesn't either, with Golden State's record at 6-5 after an impressive win on the road in Dallas made them ...

The Four Factors of basketball success are as follows: shooting (40%), turnovers (25%), rebounding (20%), free throws (15%).  That's a thought easy and novel enough, especially when considering the assigned weight of each category.  It makes sense that shooting is almost twice as influential to a team's success than any other facet, just like it does turnovers are next on the list followed by rebounding and ...

Warriors 2-1 Start Means Opportunity for Sustained Early Success

Saturday's surprising win over the heavily favored Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center – that came without Andrew Bogut and the team reeling from the previous night's injury to Brandon Rush, remember – put the Warriors in unfamiliar territory.  Not only does Golden State sit alone at the top of the Pacific Division, but their 2-0 record on the road is the organization's first such start in 18 years.  Not ...
