Bay Area Sports Positives
Tim Kawakami from the Mercury drops a list of Bay Area sports positives in Suddenly, positive developments abound. Here are some Warrior positives that made the list:
No. 9 It hasn't been artistry, but the Warriors have done exactly what they should've through the easy (but busy) part of their schedule.
That's something. Not everything. But the Warriors of the past would've played just sketchy enough to lose another three or four of these games against soft opponents.
Now they'll probably be 12-6 after tonight's game against Charlotte, then the Warriors have to buckle down for the hard stuff -- shoot better and defend the rim stronger.
No. 10 Derek Fisher, Andris Biedrins, Ike Diogu and Mickael Pietrus (once his knee heals) lead the Warriors' most effective combination of bench players since Sarunas Marciulionis and Chris Gatling.
If anything keeps the Warriors above .500 during the brutal final 11 games of December, it'll be massive production from these guys.
Gotta luv the shout out to Warrior old timers Sarunas and Gatty.
