Notes

  30. Maggette misses 2 fts; wrapped wrist and fingers; might be good to sit him a couple of games to let him heal up
  31. Randolph and Biedrins in together; 2:55 2Q
  32. Randolph hits 22 footer!!!
  33. beautiful bounce pass to Biedrins vs. tight defense
  34. GSW 55 LAC 60, end of half
  35. Leaders: Jackson 20 pts, Turiaf 6 reb, Biedrins & Turiaf 2 blks, Belinelli 4 ast, Belinelli 3 stl

  61. LAC shot uncharacteristically well from 3, hitting 13 of 24
  62. Warriors lose and go to 20-37
  63. Maggette seemed to hurt his hand again and it might be affecting his play; wouldn't be a bad idea to shelve him for a game or 2 and give the PF/C minutes to Randolph, and split the SG/SF minutes between Belinelli and Morrow - Warriors could use the increased ball movement
  64. remain 7th worst for lottery purposes


Randolph had his best perimeter shooting game.
Efficient and one of only two Warriors with a positive +/- stat.



Postgame Quotes

Don Nelson
On Tonight's Game:
“We played well enough to get back into the game for a short period, but overall we didn’t play good and we didn’t deserve to win. Baron Davis had a nice game and he came ready to work.”


Jamal Crawford
On Tonight's Game:
“Coming into the game I was focusing on moving the ball and making extra passes. That’s when the team plays well. I felt like Baron Davis had a good game. We had our hands full with him and he didn’t disappoint.”

Stephen Jackson

On Tonight's Game:
“Results have been difficult but I’m just trying to stay positive. It’s very frustrating but I can’t wear my emotions on my sleeve. Against Baron Davis, I was trying to make him take tough shots.”
