Box Score
Highlights



Notes
  1. Warriors get their first win
  2. late arriving crowd for a home opener
  3. look flat early; sloppy play from both teams
  4. like how DeMarcus Nelson attacks the rim; doing well defensively on Harris - early fouls, 2 in first 4 min.
  5. Biedrins having trouble with outlet passes to start the break (last night turnover w/ outlet pass to Turiaf); botched ally-oop pass; got into early foul trouble but stayed out of foul trouble after returning in the 2nd Quarter; good sign that he knows how to stay on the floor
  6. 1st subs = Turiaf, Azubuike, and Watson
  7. Jackson is a turnover machine - put in Williams to ease some of the pressure and need for Jackson to handle the ball - only credited for 2 turnovers?
  8. Turiaf playing well as usual, providing energy and trouble for the opposing bigs - nice pickup; only 11 min tonight, but pretty effective
  9. Maggette's typical day on the free throw line returns (13 of 15)
  10. Harrington shouldn't have anything to complain about because he's getting plenty of minutes, has the green light, and is being used as more than just a 3 point threat; did not play the entire 4th quarter
  11. like Watson's drive and kick; crisp, decisive passing
  12. Brandan Wright with back-to-back blocks on Ryan Anderson; another block from behind that leads to a fast break score; gets credit for only 1 block; good 7 min on the floor
  13. Azubuike reminds me of Mitch Richmond and how he finishes strong at the rim; had an off game
  14. Marcus Williams gets a mention from Mike Fratello - Grizzlies thought very highly of him on draft day and were feverishly trying to trade up for him
  15. Biedrin's contract will end up being one of the best non-rookie contracts in the NBA; if Monta can come back 100% and the Warriors draft a big true PG or Brandon Roy type SG, the Warriors will be a very good team.
  16. painful to watch DeMarcus at the freethrow line
  17. 16 point lead going into 4th - rest the starters! Warriors outscore Nets 33 -18 in the 3rd; whoops! Nellie doesn't rest the starters or put in a true PG to manage the press and make decisions - lead evaporates while fresh, capable players eager to get in and contribute (Wright, Belinelli, Randolph, Williams) watch from the bench.
  18. Jackson lighting it up in the 3rd; very vocal
  19. ton of missed free throws in the 2nd half
  20. Maggette the lone bright spot at the line
  21. CJ and Nelson in the game together to handle the ball pressure; CJ gets chewed out by Nelli for his ball hogging
  22. Jackson had a very efficient game; seems as though his extended rest in the 2nd quarter resulted in energized play in the 3rd to pull away from the Nets; rest is underrated, especailly as the season rolls on
  23. Rob Kurz is said to be returning; Warriors allowed to place Ellis on Suspended List after 3 games served, opening up another roster spot; less time for Al?
