A straight forward post game wrap.
Rusty Simmons: Warriors top Mavericks using only 6 players

The Warriors are rallying around the us-against-the-world mentality. Nellie's swine flu tests will be back. If positive, he'll be quarantined for a week until Dec 2.
Rusty Simmons: Ailing team gets no help from referees

Radman was surprisingly noticeable on defense tonight, not one of his usual traits. Biedrins is with the guys on the road trip doing rehab work.
Marcus Thompson II: Vladimir Radmanovic delivers in ample playing time

All it took was six guys, an assistant coach subbing in, and great teamwork to win this game.
Marcus Thompson II: Golden State Warriors, using only six players, upset the Dallas Mavericks on the road

Lots of in depth analysis about Monta and Curry, with a little bit of Morrow and Stone Soldiers. Example: Remember Curry's high bank shot over Dirk? He practices that.
Marcus Thompson: Game #13 (5-8): Warriors 111, Mavericks 103

So that's why Nellie wanted to turn Monta into a point guard. Who can stop him when he can drive and finish or drive and kick? Plus lots of other in game notes.

Stone Soldiers

I researched this after the game, and I wasn't sure about what I found, but MT found the same thing. In Keith Smart's interview, he mentioned that they called themselves Stone Soldiers. This is a reference to the Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Shi Huang Di, the First Emperor of China. These were life sized statues created and placed around the emperor's tomb to protect him in the afterlife.

In my research, I could not find any legends, stories, or myths about the Terracotta Warriors and Horses, only how they were created. So I'm not sure why the Keith Smart decided to call themselves Stone Soldiers. I presume that since these statues are supposed to protect someone in the afterlife, they themselves are "undead", like mythical mummies and skeletons. Thus, when you try to kill them, knock them down, etc., they keep coming back. So imagine if you had such an army coming at you that won't quit. That sounds a lot like what Smart described about the Warriors.


Stone Soldiers. Hey, this would make a nice Tony.psd poster concept, don't you think? Oh, Tony!.
