Notes
  1. Wasn't able to watch the game, but I caught a little bit of the 1st half on NBA.com's Audio League Pass.
  2. Hopefully, the Warriors can have two legit 3 point snipers in Belinelli and Morrow. They both played a significant role in keeping it close in the 4th quarter. Chances are, one will be hot if the other is cold.
  3. Randolph seems to play aggressively and without fear for a rookie. I'd rather him play this way and make a few mistakes than play passive like Wright seems to do in some games.
  4. Very disappointed in the PG play - 3 assits between Watson and Williams - Turiaf leads the team with 7. It's still too early in preseason to tell, but they may need to keep Dickau instead of signing my preferred choice, Justin Williams.
  5. Warriors get outscored 36 to 24 in the 3rd after leading 53 to 46 at the half.
  6. Check out this piece on Anthony Randolph - Randolph: No regrets
