Notes
  1. Listened to game on KNBR 680
  2. Warriors opponent's FG% the last 2 games: 38.6% and 36.9%.
  3. Marco Belinelli is honored with the MVW (Most Valuable Warrior) for the 2nd time in 3 preseason games.
  4. Warriors win easily without Ellis, Biedrins, Maggette, and Azubuike.
  5. Belinelli on fire all game long, knocking down 3's and taking it to the rack.
  6. D. Nelson making a strong case for making the team by making his shots, making great decisions, and defending well. Chance are that this performance has earned him a spot on the team. Dan Dickau DNP-CD, not sure if we need him if Nelson plays anywhere near like he did tonight. Warriors could get by with Watson, Williams, and Nelson - DO NOT cut Hendrix or Morrow.
  7. R. Hendrix missing a ton of layups early. Very rusty but very active. Rebounding machine! He's the big brusing body that we need to neutralize the Boozers, Stoudimires, and Duncans of the league....somewhat.
  8. Turiaf and Hendrix will wear down the opposing bigs with their physicality while Biedrins will kill them with his quickness and agility.
  9. Williams/Belinelli/Randolph/Wright/Hendrix getting some run together and making good.
  10. Once again, Williams did not stand out in his performance tonight.
  11. Brandan Wright still can't seem to put together a string of good games in a row.
  12. Warriors fly out to China tonight for 2 preseason games with Bucks in China

Next Game
Wed. Oct. 15 vs. Mil, 7:00 AM - TV: ESPN
