In the first game back, the Warriors came out on top thanks to a buzzer beater by newcomer, Troy Hudson to sealed the victory. Tuesday's game against the Lakers was like old times on the site. The preview/ open thread had 202 comments, but I know we're just getting warmed up for the season.
The game is essentially meaningless, but it's basketball nonetheless. People will make their predictions and analysis based on preseason performances. If I recall correctly, Andris Biedrins did not play so well in the summer league last year nor did he play well in the preseason last year. Well he turned in a nice season didn't he? So, let's not get carried away with great performances and non-performances, but rather watch to see what kinds of skills each of these guys worked on over the summer.
I just have a couple requests for this game, can we play Brandan Wright and Stephane Lasme? I was hoping to see them play last time, but they both got DNP's. Even though the game isn't televised, I at least want to see them in the boxscore.
- Warriors win by 6 - not that it matters
- Brandan Wright hangs 10 points and grabs 4 boards
- Belinelli drops 20 poi(nts) including 4 three's
- Baron does his best impression of King Kalakaua with another stellar performance
- I get some loco moco and some spam musubi for dinner, yum!
UPDATE: Brandan Wright and Patrick O'Bryant are starting tonight!
O’Bryant will start in place of Andris Biedrins, who will sit out tonight’s action with a sprained toe.
UPDATE 2: Warriors Win!! 119-106
