As I so eloquently stated above, the Golden State Warriors are 2-1 and heading over to Sacramento looking to win another on on the road. Here are several links that were floating around the internet this weekend.
Because what else is there better to do on a Monday morning that to read about the Warriors:
Tim Kawakami talks about the surprising start for the Golden State Warriors and its historical trends. Good news?
After getting thoroughly outplayed by the Memphis Grizzlies and losing Brandon Rush the night before, of course the Warriors come out and beat the Los Angeles Clippers. Not only did they beat a very deep Clipper team—who also crushed the Los Angeles Lakers a night before—but they led most of the game. #4BRush everyone.
"If healthy" was the theme coming into this Warriors campaign. And already, issues abound. Brandon Rush's injury, while unfortunate and a killer, can be alleviated with quick development from rookie Harrison Barnes. Andrew Bogut, on the other hand, is irreplaceable. But Stephen Curry is healthy! And more Richard Jefferson!
How are the Warriors going to cover for Brandon Rush's production? Rush was a player that was coming into his own in his second year on the team. But the improved depth brought by free agency can assuage some of the loss. Marcus Thompson explains how the Dubs can remedy the loss.
More Andrew Bogut news. None of it good. Sam Amick explains why the season hinges not on Stephen Curry's ankle, but Bogut's anything.
Golden State Of Mind got you covered on everything Brandon Rush. Just don't ever look at another picture of that injury again. Flashbacks of Shaun Livingston still haunting me to this day.
Check out how each player was graded by Warriorsworld after Saturday night's thrilling victory.
Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea writes about the financial implications of the Brandon Rush injury and how the Warriors can make up for Brandon Rush's production.
This was written before the season started but I think every Warrior fan should take a look at this. Explains in-depth as to what in the heck happened to Andris Biedrins—the center who had so much promise at a certain point couple years back.
Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN analyzes the play that won the Warriors the game. And it was about defense. Very weird but delightful.
Feel free to share any other links you found of interest from the weekend or this morning in the comments.
