At a time of year when wins and losses definitely don't really matter, the final score of the Golden State Warriors' game against the Milwaukee Bucks today is even less relevant.
After losing to the #22 Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the Las Vegas Summer League championship tournament, the Warriors find themselves facing the Bucks in the consolation bracket today. Win or lose, the Warriors will complete their minimum five games today.
What we probably want to see from the Warriors remains the same as we've discussed all summer league:
- Can second-year guard Nemanja Nedovic give us some sign that he can consistently control a game?
- Can Nedovic outplay the constantly-hustling Aaron Craft?
- Can second-year center Ognjen Kuzmic provide any more reason for optimism that he's a serviceable third center?
- How will the Warriors fare defensively against Jabari Parker?
- Can Kiwi Gardner get some run though?
Otherwise, it doesn't appear that anyone from the roster outside of those on last year's Warriors' roster really has a shot at making the 2014-15 roster. But having a reason to watch Parker play should be fun?
If nothing else, consider it a break from Kevin Love rumors (which we've been discussing plenty in three previous threads from about three different angles already, if you're looking for somewhere to discuss that).
