Warriors Summer League record: 1-2
This loss was so bad, you would have thought LeBron was playing. I understand that this is supposed to be for players to work on their game and try out some new things, but who gets embarassed in a summer league game? C'mon.

I'm not sure if I should be happy with Patrick O'Bryant's play today. He scored a team high 12 points, grabbed 4 rebounds, and blocked 2 shots. In the Warriors' official Summer League blog, the writer says that he was "impressive" with a couple hook shots and a 17 footer. So I'm happy with that, but looking at the box score under PF (Personal Fouls) he has NINE! It's good to see that his point total has now exceeded his foul total, but how do you pick up 9 fouls in 22 minutes? That's almost as if every time your man touches the ball, you foul him. Or maybe he thought Mario Elie called for the Hack-a-Shaq routine on Brandon Hunter and Martynas Andriuskevicius. Whatever it was, stop fouling. Learn to play defense.
Not sure what happened to Andris Biedrins, he played only 1 minute.
Fun stat o' the day: 5 assists. That's not fun, you say, there's lots of players who can get 5 assists. Oh, but that's not for one player, that was the Warriors' total as a team. 21 made buckets, 5 assists. Compare that to Cleveland's 19 assists on 34 made buckets.
Warrior Wonder: Patrick O'Bryant for nearly recording his first double-double. He scored 12 points and missed the dub-dub by 1 foul and ended up with 9. Elie should have left him in there to record his 10th foul. Seriously though, I'm glad to see he was able to score. 12 points in 22 minutes, I'm happy with that.
