Last night's exhibition game between the Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz wasn't televised, but since it was at Oracle Arena I decided to go.
We haven't planned to do extensive recaps of preseason games, but the following is just a few notes I took on the game (with some post-game refinements) just so you can have the glimpse of the game beyond the box score.

The Warriors ended up with the NBA.com's top two plays of the night, including Harrison Barnes' dunk.
Last night's game between the Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz wasn't televised, but Andy Larsen of SB Nation's Utah Jazz site SLC Dunk was resourceful in taking what glimpse he got of the game and doing what analysis he could.
The play is absurdly simple: Harrison Barnes dumps the ball to Lee in the post. Barnes makes a quick cut to the hoop, using Lee as a screen. Lee simply hands it back to Barnes who's easily able to dunk...Barnes doesn't initially go towards his basket, but instead makes a split-second fake to the top before cutting hard behind Lee...Al Jefferson does go and help, but does so too late, once Harrison already has the ball and is just one step away from the rim.
While Larsen's focus is obvious on Utah's defense there, the decisiveness of the rookie in going strong to the basket was promising - ball handling and the related issue of getting to the rim to finish were concerns in both college and summer league play and it looks like he's already making strides in training camp.
