RECAP: Warriors 109 Grizzlies 114 - REF U SUCK?

Final Boxscore  |  Open Thread


"I'm not going to take questions because I don't want to get fined," said Warriors coach Don Nelson, still upset over the officiating in the fourth quarter. "We missed a lot of shots in the fourth quarter and they made a lot of free throws, and that's all I have to say."

Smart man.

I'm still heated from last night and I probably don't have much to add in for analysis and recap.  Being at the game and witnessing that atrocity of a "game" makes me wonder why I even do this to myself. 

It's one thing if I have injury-plagued team that has front office turmoil and can't keep a great player.  I got over that this season.

I'm not one to make excuses.  I'm not going to blame anyone.

As I sat in the Roaracle last night, I only heard one thing.


Could you hear that on TV?

Cause I heard it in Section 109.  Over and over and over and over again.





This looks like fun.

Available players for the Warriors = 8.

I mean honestly, can you even play a legitamite NBA game with these players?

Monta Ellis

Jamal Crawford

Anthony Randolph

Ronny Turiaf

Kelena Azubuike

C.J. Watson

Rob Kurz

Anthony Morrow

Yes, there is talent.  Possibly (I use that very loosely) even an All Star in that list of players, but come on.  A REAL NBA GAME?

Look, I could understand if this were a practice, but we're talking about a GAME..

Not practice.  A GAME.


This was a bit scary.


Except I don't want that.  I don't want that at all.  But I'll get that later.

First, I have to give the man his props.  29 points and 5 assists is very nice for a player coming off an injury.  His acrobatic moves and ability to finish strong are still in him.  I really REALLY liked what I saw yesterday. 

But, I want more.  Remember, we signed this guy for 5 more years and this can't be his ceiling.  That word POTENTIAL needs to turn into something else - like ALL STAR. 

Keep growing man, keep growing.  I see the fire burning.


Yo guys, why are you just watching this happen?

Grizzly Attack

Look, I can understand that a lineup of O.J. Mayo, Marc Gasol, Rudy Gay, Mike Conley, Hakim Warrick, and Darco Milicic might be hard to stop.

I get it - young team, lots of potential (where have I heard that before?) and a bunch of guys that could end up to be All Stars.

But who the heck is that guy in the picture? 

And why didn't Darius Miles get some playing time?  I loved that man in Van Wilder!



SIIIICK moves but couldn't finish all the time.  Guess that's the definition of a streaky shooter.

Wish you well wherever you end up next year man.



I'm going to follow Don Nelson's lead on this one.  Not going touch it. 

The only thing I will say is this - there must be a reason that there everyone was screaming something at the top of their lungs.

I only wonder what this game would have been like if Stephen Jackson were around.



And as fans, feel free to drop your commentary about anything...

Players, coaches, and I don't know...
