Highlights

Popcorn Machine's Game Flow


There will be growing pains, but the rewards will come sooner than later

Notes
  1. Barnett's keys to the game: keep Martin on the perimeter, good shot selection; own the rebounding edge
  2. starting lineup: Watson/Azubuike/Jackson/Wright/Biedrins; inactives: Ellis/Harrington/Maggette/Hendrix
  3. not much defense after the first few minutes
  4. Belinelli in at 8 min mark of the 1st quarter
  5. Wright is LONG
  6. Biedrins looking great running the break; Jackson and Biedrins have great chemistry
  7. Wright with 2 fouls early; Randolph in for Wright
  8. Spencer Hawes vs. Anthony Randolph
  9. Andris with 3 assists early; offense running through postmen
  10. Belinelli hits his first shot, a 3 pointer
  11. Randolph needs to quit settling for the long jumpers; he can take it strong to the rim and draw fouls just like Summer League
  12. very high scoring game
  13. Belinelli feeling it; long 3 missed but on line
  14. chemistry developing right before our eyes; Jackson/Wright give-n-go
  15. Hawes (20 years old) is going to be one of the best bigs in the West; tremendous range, size, and offensive potential; very skilled big man and aggressive; Dirk-ish
  16. lots of Warrior fans populating a sparse crowd
  17. Turiaf not playing well; only 5 min; not sure what Nellie's reasoning is on that one; still hasn't found his shot this season
  18. Azubuike on Jason Thompson
  19. Rob Kurz in at middle of 2nd quarter
  20. Kings ripping apart Warriors' defense with constant ball movement, cutting, and crisp passing
  21. Martin cold from 3, hits from everywhere else
  22. Jackson getting feisty with refs and his match-up challenges
  23. Kurz needs to hit those open shots, so far, he's playing like garbage
  24. Biedrins is owning the boards; gets 14th consecutive double-double with 2 min. left in the 1st half
  25. Martin cries after twisting ankle - embarrassing
  26. Anthony Randolph getting extensive minutes; trying to do too much; the more he played on during the game the better he looked
  27. too bad we didn't end up signing Bobby Brown this summer - quick PG with good range
  28. all summer league team playing most of the 2nd half; at least Jackson finally gets his rest
  29. Morrow makes his 1st appearance and 1st NBA points at 8:36 left in 4th; best pure shooter on the Warriors
  30. Marcus Williams with terrific passes; he needs to play alongside Jackson (or Azubuike)/Randolph/Wright/Biedrins
  31. Spencer Hawes drains contested 3 pointer over Randolph
  32. Kurz does not belong, never will
  33. teammates need to look for the shooters while they are out there, first Belinelli gets ignored, now Morrow
  34. young guys just got beat by a veteran team with a few young up-n-comers, Hawes, Thompson, and Brown
  35. difficult game to watch, but the more the young guys play, the better
  36. would like to have seen: more Williams, Belinelli, and Morrow, less Kurz more Hendrix, some more Turiaf, a 3-man frontline of Wright/Randolph/Biedrins, 30+ min from Wright and Randolph, committing minutes to the right youngsters
