The 7-1 startup of 94-95 season

Hello,

 

by 1994, NBA games were rarely broadcasted to Brazil, where I live. Getting fresh information was hard as there was no internet nor ESPN around here. We usually to rely on a news magazine that published all results from the past week evert Tuesday :-)

 

However, on Nov 22nd, 1994, the Warriors x Hornets game was broadcasted live, to my total delight. As the pre-game was going on, I could see how brilliant Tim Hardaway, Latrell Spreewell and Ricky Pierce were playing together. All of them were averaging well over 20ppg (Spree - 27.8PPG, Harda - 23.9PPG and Pierce - 21.4PPG) and shooting over 40% from 3pt (56/139) and over 50% from the field (187/371) combined.

 

Up to that game, the Warriors had beat the Utah Jazz twice, Spurs, Lakers and Knicks once, the only loss came to the Timberwolves, on that unforgettable game where Manute Bol hit 3 three pointers in a row to bring the Warriors back to the game (the narration @ 0:44 is unmatchable: "OH NO...... OH NOOOO...... OOOHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOO"  :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)   --   only to see Gatling miss all 8 free throws and lose the game by 2pts :-(

 

I still have this game against the Hornets recorded on my VHS. Starting lineup featured Bol + Seikaly + Gugliotta with Hardaway and Sprewell on the backcourt. Immediatelly after the tip in, the Hornets were double teaming Hardaway, Sprewell and Gugliotta, forcing the first shot of the game, if I remember correctly, was 3 by Bol, which hit hard the fron iron.

 

We end up losing by 4 but I could clearly see that there was NO team chemestry within the team on that game. Sadly, that was the beggining of a 4 game losing streak, followed by a win and a 10 game losing streak, sinking our ship. Just much later on I went to know about Hardaway x Sprewell fight... and being a Timmy fan, I started to hate Sprewell instantly :-)

Full box scores of each game of that season can be found here:

Now here comes the question: does THIS actual team have team chemistry to go through all season + playoffs??

What you guys think? We've seen in the last 2 years how volatile Monta can be. What about Curry? And Lee?

Regards,
