Post Game Re-cap: Warriors:99 Kings:114

The Warriors Lose! Who cares it's only pre-season. However they did play well. Baron Davis pitched in a game high 22 points 4 rebs, 1 steal and 6 assists, and Troy Murphy put in a solid 15 points and 8 rebs. The Warriors just could not contain Peja Stojakovic and Kevin Martin who each scored 15 points as well as Kenny Thomas who pitched in 11 points and a game high 9 rebounds. The Warriors played well to start the game off, but lost the lead with 8:13 to go in the first quarter. From then on the Kings never relinquished their lead. Furthermore a lax 2nd quarter in which the Warriors were out scored 29-18 put the Warriors completely out of the game. Let's just hope that the Warriors will be better at coming from behind during the regular season. Link for the recap.
key stats: led all scorers with 22 points but also dished out a game high 6 assists

i saw the game from SD again!

murphy looked very good. much more aggresive for the offensive boards and continue to due what he's good at on clearing the ball in the defensive end. he's developed a couple of post moves. one that i saw was a turn around jump hook from about 5 feet. another was a back to the basket close range fadeaway. he continued to shoot good as usual. i think murph has been working hard over the summer. pietrus was forcing too much. baron attempted some ridiculous shots, made quick 3 point attempts and had this crazy switch up lay up agains the king's bigs.

dunleavy tried to stay with peja whenever he defending him but managed to loose him most of the time.

sdshots- thanks for giving us some views on the game especially since it wasn't on TV in the Bay.

Let's hope this year we show the Kings who are the real Kings of Northern California.

Saw it on Comcast sports, something I didn't realize existed had I not checked the Kings website (I live in the Warriors TV market but work in the Sac market. I'm lucky enough to have DirectTV at work).

Anyway, I caught the last half of the game when they were already down by 15. I have to admit, the 2nd team still looks sluggish without Baron. If the Kings second team shoots like they did in the 2nd half of the game, they'll be trouble. The rim couldn't have seemed any bigger the way their shots were just going in.

P.S. I hate all announcers associated with Kings basketball. Maybe "hate" is the wrong word. I think I "loathe" them. Apparently, the Warriors are "not a strong offensive team", and Baron is "careless".

They must have missed the last two games we played against them last year.

I'm not sure what you're talking about. I watched the Kings feed of the game and both Grant Napear and Jerry Reynolds are very high on the Warriors. They even pointed out how the Warriors beat them twice last year and talked about how they thought the Warriors would be very good this year.

You are right about the Kings' second team. Actually, the whole team in general can shoot the damn ball. Brad Miller and Kenny Thomas are two of the best shooting big men in the league. The Kings are going to surprise some teams this year cause of their depth, and watch out for Jason Hart. Geoff Petrie STOLE him from the Bobcats.

Those comments I referenced came after the game during the "recap" of the Kings performance.

I just re-watched the tape of the recap; from the moment the game ended, until they talked to Bonzi Wells about his game (and Francisco Garcia), before he and Reynolds closed it out. There was no mention of the Warriors. Did I miss something?

I saw this game. Other than Baron and possiibly Murphy, I thought the rest of them did not show up to play. This is my gripes:

Dunleavy - When Richardson is out, Dunleavy HAS to look for his shot more. He takes 9 shots in 27 minutes. What the hell?!?

Pietrus/Fisher - These two knuckleheads were killing me with their play in preseason. Newsflash! Close out on shooters!

Warrior frontcourt - Does fouling the a good free throwing shooting team into the bonus in the first minutes in the quarter considered good defense?
