Highlights
Popcorn Machine's GameFlow


Morrow was lights out, shooting 3-3 from beyond the arc

Notes
  1. Starting lineups: Crawford / Belinelli / Jackson / Azubuike / Biedrins vs. Ollie / Foye / Miller / Gomes / Love
  2. Belinelli having a rough start; missed jumper, missed layup on fast break; missed layup in half-court offense
  3. Barnett 'Keys to the Game': 1) dominate early 2) win the inside game 3) ball possession
  4. Marco finally scores with 3 pointer
  5. Warriors seem to be making a conscious effort to get Belinelli a touch on every early possession
  6. Warriors getting lots of easy scoring opportunities
  7. Belinelli with another 3 after put-back slam by Love
  8. GS 22 MIN 11, 5:15 1Q
  9. Belinelli starting to feel it; hits another jumper after up-fake
  10. Holy Crap!!! Summer League Belinelli is finally here!!!! Another 3!
  11. Maggette makes an appearance w/ Turiaf being the vet to rest
  12. Gomes would have been a great addition to the Warriors; skilled, big enough to play PF
  13. GS 36 MIN 18, end of 1Q
  14. Davidson and Randolph start off 2Q w/ Belinelli, Maggette, and Crawford
  15. Randolph gets on board with offensive rebound and shot off glass
  16. GS 40 MIN 21, 9:30 2Q
  17. Morrow gets into the act with a 3
  18. Morrow hits first two shots, both all net
  19. Davidson a pretty good rebounder, not a skilled finisher
  20. Maggette effective off bench as usual; 8 pt in 8 min
  21. Davidson hits mid-range shot; slow release
  22. GS 53 MIN 23, 5:42 2Q
  23. Maggette not sharing the ball at all
  24. CJ scores; everyone that played is on the board
  25. Davidson and Randolph keeping the ball alive; can't wait to see Randolph, Wright, and Biedrins
  26. Randolph gets chance to score w/ iso on last possession and does (misses and-1)
  27. GS 66 MIN 37, end of 2Q
  28. Belinelli has a knack for drawing offensive fouls as he fights through/around screens

  34. Jackson continues to play well shooting 7-14 fg, 7 reb, 5 ast
  35. Corey Maggette w/ 6 to
  36. Did Randolph and Belinelli do something wrong? Why aren't they in during a blow-out? We don't need to see Jackson, Maggette, Crawford, and Watson!! At least Morrow is playing
  37. GS 103 MIN 86, 4:41 4Q
  38. nice moves by Biedrins to take Love from the top of the key
  39. Morrow's shots are all net!!! 13 pts in 16 min.
  40. Kurz gets in w/ 2:13 left in game; GS 113 MIN 91
  41. GS 118 MIN 94 end of game
  42. great shooting from future core of Belinelli, Randolph, and Morrow (12-21 fg, 7-8 3pt); log in 54 min
  43. should have played kids more and sat vets for majority of 4Q
  44. Warriors' record is 21-39, 7th worst in the league; they need to be careful not to inch past Toronto and New York which would cause them to fall to the 9th pick; this win deals a big blow to their chances of overtaking MIN for the 6th pick

Biedrins gets a double-double in 27 minutes of action


Quotes
Don Nelson
On Tonight's Game:
"Actually, we've been playing pretty well, moving the ball and giving pretty good effort -- and then tonight, everything just clicked for us... Well, we have a game plan every night. Sometimes they seem to work a little better than others. You never really know, but I think we were -- we had their stuff covered pretty well and everybody remembered and carried out their job, too. That helps."

"Off of our high for the year, I think 25 (turnovers) our last game and it cost us the game. We turned the ball over 25 times. We're one of the lowest in the league, at least we were until we set our record. So anyway, we wanted to take care of the ball and we did that the first quarter. I wasn't very happy with six turnovers in the second quarter, but anyway, we were aggressive and did a lot of good things to get that lead."

"What I liked is that we have a game tomorrow and I didn't have to play my heavy-minute guys the whole game and fight until the end and all that. They had a hard practice kind of a game and hopefully we'll get our sleep tonight and we'll be ready to do it again tomorrow. That's the main thing."

"We're not going to pound our chest on this game. We got accomplished what we wanted. Guys were able to play. I think Jermareo got his first real opportunity and did well, and showed tonight that he can be an NBA player. That's a good thing. Not a perfect game for him, but he did a lot of good things and he rebounded the ball. That's what I'm after with him. I know he can shoot, I know he can play, but the rebounds, he went after them tonight. It was a nice game for him. I'm very happy for him."


Corey Maggette
On Stephen Jackson:
"(Jackson) is the key to this team. Not only his scoring, but his passing, too, and his rebounding, things like that. He brings a dimension to this game. Tonight he was probably 23 (points) and seven (rebounds). He doesn't get the credit he should. He's a heck of a player."


Stephen Jackson
On Tonight's Game:
"It was crazy. Got a little rest; rest always helps. I wish we could've gotten the win the other night but it felt good to go out there and get this one."

"We shared the ball well and got a lot of deflections. When we get a count on deflections, we get out and run. We've got some great shooters on this team and when we can move the ball and get open shots, we can knock them down. Any time we are able to get steals, we can get out to a big lead."

"It's a great way to start the road trip. Minnesota's been playing well with the loss of Jefferson, but we can't worry about who's out there or not out there. We have to try and finish the season on a great note and winning tonight is definitely good."

RANDOLPH MAKING HOLLINGER LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT



The latest Player Efficiency Rating (PER) for Randolph has him breaking into the top 10 for rookies.

#7 on the charts at 16.04

Another statistical metric created by John Hollinger was the 'Draft Rater.' Here is what his formula has determined was the future of Anthony Randolph.

Draft Rater: Which big men will become the best pros?

By John Hollinger
ESPN Insider
Originally Published: June 20, 2008

Between Me and the Scouts, One of Us Will Look Like an Idiot
Anthony Randolph, LSU, 9.85

Yes, this is true. Seen in many quarters as a high lottery pick, Randolph has virtually nothing in his statistical record to justify such a lofty selection.

In particular, his woeful ball-handling numbers are a major red flag. Randolph had more turnovers than any prospect except Beasley and Thompson, but those two players had every play run through them; I'm still waiting to find out Randolph's excuse.

Additionally, his 49.9 true shooting percentage is alarmingly bad for a guy who is supposed to dominate athletically.

He can block shots, and the fact his team was such a mess probably didn't help his numbers any, but gambling on Randolph with a high first-round pick looks like the basketball equivalent of hitting on 19 in blackjack. Hey, maybe the dealer throws out a 2 and everyone thinks you're a genius, but chances are you're going to bust.

It appears he's going to be drafted in the middle of the first round at worst, but even that appears to be a terrible mistake -- there is no track record whatsoever of a player rated this poorly achieving pro success.


Time to retool your Draft Rater, John Hollinger, to give more weight to intangibles, team turmoil, and take late starts in the sport into consideration. Either that, or just watch some more tape so you don't look like an idiot after going out of your way to blast a 19 year old prospect.

POLL RESULTS: POINT GUARD MINUTES

Who should get the most minutes at PG the rest of the season?

Marco Belinelli: 28 votes (71%)
Jamal Crawford: 3 votes (7%)
Monta Ellis: 8 votes (20%)

THE BIG 3


If Randolph can improve on his consistency from the perimeter and become a legitimate small forward, a frontline of Randolph, Wright, and Biedrins (with Turiaf rotating in to take care of the bulky PF/C's) would be incredible. It will be among the thinnest starting frontlines, BUT it will also be among the fastest, longest, and skilled.

They would be among the best rebounding and shot blocking fronts in the league. I envision Wright becoming a more versatile scorer than Biedrins and Randolph to be a star in a few years. All they need is a true PG and proto SG that can defend the perimeter, play unselfishly, and knock down the 3 ball.

What we have:

Ellis - ?

Jackson / Belinelli - defends, perimeter game, can initiate offense, great 2nd/3rd option

Randolph - rebounds, blocks shots, can score inside and out, long and athletic, star potential

Wright - blocks shots, rebounds, disruptive with length, athletic, can evolve into a very good scorer

Biedrins - rebounds, blocks shots, high conversion rate, great hands, smart, star potential

* PG is the big missing piece, but if a star SG who's a willing passer can be had, the Warriors could go far while settling for Ellis or Belinelli at point.
