Biedrins, Turiaf return and … the Warriors look better

I'm sorry for the long delay between blog entries. I took some time off for Christmas and spent the holidays in Oregon with a lot of family. I've been keeping an eye on the Warriors, though and wanted to give a belated review of the Warriors' recent play. You might [...]

Warriors’ injuries are a legitimate excuse

Usually, it's unacceptable when athletes or coaches make excuses following a loss. It's looked at as an admission of weakness, and no self-respecting player or coach would want to give future opponents any indication of feebleness or frailty.

Win against Mavericks a turning point for Warriors?

Is it time to break out the "We Believe" T-shirts again? Holy cow. What a great game. If you're a Warriors fan, you better hope you have that game on your DVR, because you won't want to delete it. You never want to overstate one win, but this could be [...]

Anthony Randolph plays his best game so far

Anthony Randolph had his best game of the season Monday night in the Warriors' 146-105 win against the Timberwolves (check out the incredible photo to the right). I don't think it was a breakout game, in that I don't think we'll suddenly see consistent performances like this from Randolph. He [...]

A game to forget

The Warriors coaches and players are already looking forward to Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings, and after Friday night's debacle against the L.A. Clippers, that might be the best decision for everybody who cares about the Warriors. There are 82 games in the NBA, which means that even after [...]
