Recap: Warriors 98, Lakers 110 Part Deuce- Keep Ya Head Up Dub Nation!

You all know what went down opening night against the Lakers (see Preview | Recap). It wasn't pretty, but what never ceases to amaze me is how sharp Dub Nation is. Your thoughts in the open thread/ recap were sharp as usual. The diaries have been coming in full force too:

There isn't a more passionate and intelligent bunch of fans in the league than us Warriors fans. I just wanted say to Warriors Nation- Keep Ya Head Up!

Here's 5 reasons why there's still reason for optimism for Dub Nation:

 

1. We've got Nellie holding everyone accountable and GSoM friend Tim Kawakami dropping flash analysis: Don Nelson, at the podium, dazed and furious. Also check out Tim's 3 Options for the Warriors.

So the Warriors will tinker. They might?make a small trade or two. They will slowly realize that?Murphy and Dunleavy CANNOT BE ON THE COURT AT THE SAME TIME after I write it for the 14,000th time.

I'll pitch in and agree 100% with Tim on this one. I think I've written that pairing Murphy and Dunleavy together is absolutely foolish 14,001 times.

 

2. We've got The Mask. (Hey, it worked for Jim Carry, maybe it'll work for TMurph!)

3. We won't have to triple team superstars like Luke Walton every night.

4. We've got pride. We don't take things lying down.

5. The Warriors have never lost 2 games in a row at the Oracle Arena- the Blazers better watch out tomorrow night!
