Box Score

Popcorn Machine's Game Flow

Stephen Jackson tries to lead the young guys to victory

  1. Barnett's Keys to the Game: put body on gasol, pick and roll defense, more basketball movement
  2. starting lineup: Watson, Azubuike, Jackson, Wright, Biedrins - inactives: Maggette, Harrington, Hendrix, and Ellis
  3. Wright's length bothering shots early
  4. love the length of Beans and Wright - can't wait for Randolph to get regular run
  5. Anthony Randolph inserted at 4:22 in the 1st! Thank you Nellie for making the games exciting again
  6. Memphis shooting well from the perimeter; Gay and Mayo improve shooting percentages in the 2nd half
  7. Marcus Williams in the game! Someone put something in Nellie's drink; nice lead pass in the fastbreak; I hope we continue to see more of him; missed all 3 of his jumpers and didn't penetrate deep into the paint tonight
  8. Randolph super confident; amazing leaping ability; shot changer; only Warriors with a positive +/- stat (+9)
  9. new look for Warriors - never had so much shot blocking before; Grizzlies working extra hard and thinking too much in the paint
  10. Belinelli in! I love the new rotation! 10 different players get on the court; way to work in the young guys Nellie!
  11. Gasol and Arthur in foul trouble early 3 fouls each
  12. Darko Milicic ejected after rightfully arguing call the wrong way; Arthur in again
  13. Grizzlies out-rebounding Warriors bigtime; not blocking off the boards, but relying on team defense and trying to block every shot; let's see if they adjust
  14. Biedrins having a tough time in the paint; shots not falling (maybe I'm expecting too much to have every shot fall down); Andris is awesome!
  15. Gasol has 4 fouls at 10:55 in the 3rd
  16. DeMarcus Nelson needs to guard Mayo - hot early in the 2nd half
  17. Gay taking it strong to the rim to draw contact in the 2nd half
  18. 3rd quarter sloppy - 17 to 6 run from Grizzlies
  19. Watson/Nelson/Belinelli/Jackson/Biedrins - real small ball
  20. Jackson and C.J. bringing them back; Watson is one tough SOB
  21. DeMarcus posting up Memphis PG's
  22. no one is getting Belinelli the ball
  23. poor transition defense; Grizzlies score with ease each time down
  24. Mayo with 11 points in 3rd quarter
  25. Randolph 4 of 5 from field; I would try to play Jackson, Buke, Randolph, Wright, and Biedrins
  26. wow. 9-10 ft for Biedrins; lone miss was an air ball, but followed it with a swish; 13th straight double-double; leads NBA in rebounds
  27. great battle down the stretch; Kelenna, Jackson, Wright, Biedrins, Watson Big
  28. Grizzlies getting some gift calls - taking crowd out of game and shifting momentum
  29. Gasol fouls out with 8 points; non-factor; Darrell Arthur steps up big - fantastic looking rookie with range and tenacity on the boards; draft steal
  30. Gay is a Warrior killer; icing game with corner 3
  31. Mayo is going to be the next Arenas; deadly from outside, creative in the paint
  32. Randolph settles for 20 foot jumper and misses when he had a clear path to the basket; he'll learn; kudos to Nellie for playing Randolph - this is good for player morale (Randolph and Belinelli - need to get Turiaf more run as well)
  33. don't like how DeMarcus drove in when he could have kicked it out to Belinelli for a 3 when they were down by 6 with not much time left in game; if he's in, use him
  34. Jackson and Watson missing 2 freethrows each down the stretch was a big blow
  35. Wright couldn't follow up his outstanding game with a good one - sure signs of youth, but it's important to keep playing him regardless; it will pay dividends in a matter of months, if not weeks
  36. even though the Warriors lost, it was a valuable experience for the youngsters and a pretty entertaining game; only 12 turnovers - pretty good considering many of the lineup combinations out there had little time to develop chemistry - it'll come
  37. key stat of the night: Warriors out-rebounded 55 to 41
  38. would like to have seen more Nelson on Mayo, more rest for Jackson, more Randloph and Wright, dribble penetration from Williams, PG's feeding Belinelli, more Turiaf, less chucking from Jackson if shot is not 'on'

Warrior fans look forward to a future frontline of Biedrins, Wright, and Randolph

Grizzlies - Warriors 109-104 I Mayo 20pts vs Jackson 27pts
