Recap: Warriors 100, Nets 97

7-5 never felt so Good!
With virtually no inside game and 28 trifecta tries the Warriors pulled of the W against the New Jersey Nets. Frequent Golden State Warriors BLOG visitor Hash scored some tickets 8 rows up just so we could bring everybody some more great in person analysis. We were hoping to watch a battle between two the best backcourts in the league (Boom Dizzle- JRich vs. Kidd- Vinsanity), but Vince got knocked out of the game in the first half with a strained back muscle. Still, we'll take the W.

With the Nets backcourt minus one former Air Canada the Warrior guards played big. JRich and Fisher were raining threes for a combined 8 trifectas made. The Warriors seem content to live and die by the three even though they aren't built for that style- and tonight they lived.

The bad news for Warrior fans is the knee injury sustained by Mickael Pietrus. We'll keep you
updated, but right now it only looks like he'll be out 2 weeks. The kid is tough and we expect him back with that goofy smile sooner rather than later.

Nenad Krstic should never be dropping 21 and 10 on you. Imagine what Tim Duncan is going to do Wednesday when the champs come to town. The Warriors are getting abused inside. Foyle is playing tough (13 boards, 2 blocks, 2 steals), but he is still an undersized center that picks up too many fouls. Biendrins' 5 fouls in 9 minutes is unacceptable. We love his engergy and the kid is trying, but it's clear he isn't NBA ready yet. His defense is a liability. Taft racked up a DNP. Let's assume it's an injury, because he deserves to be playing.

Warriors first round pick Ike Diogu (#9) should be coming back in the next few games. He has been cleared to practice. Let's hope we have Baby Brand on our hands or at least a rich man's Clarence Weatherspoon.

Dunleavy continues to impress. In 29 minutes his shot was on fire, he dominated the boards, didn't pick up silly fouls, created tons of turnovers with his thefts and blocks, and made his teammates better with his sweet passing.
The Dun line: 6 points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3pt), 3 assists, 5 rebounds, 1 turnover, 5 fouls, 0 blocks, 0 steals.

The best part was the opposing starting Small Forward had a terrible game. Richard Jefferson only had 23 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals. Good to see the Warriors continue to win the starting Small Forward matchup. It's a formula for success. That 44 million looks like chump change if this is what we'll be getting for the next 5 years!

Warrior Wonder
It was Troy Murphy poster night and TMurph didn't dissapoint. T-Double notched 21 points (2-3 treys) with 10 rodmans, 2 swats, and 1 pick. He is the undisputed 3rd offensive option on this team. When he plays big, the Warriors look good. The Warriors are undefeated this season in games where he puts up at least 17ppg.

I think the Warriors Wonder should go to the mascot Thunder, who while breakdancing amidst the cheerleaders actually face planted one of these poor girls in front of the entire Arena.

Easily the best play of the game.

Another classic recap from people who make me raise my hand and yell approval! The dunleavy part is outrageous and does a great job outlining how FUKIN SHIT THIS NADCRUNCH IS!!!!!!!!!!

With Pietrus out - Goodbye!

Diogu better get back and play decently
