A few things to look for based on early impressions of the Warriors' rookies in their first two outings:

  • Harrison Barnes: Obviously we'd probably like to see him have another scoring performance like he did in the first game, but more important to watch might be if he can be more aggressive getting himself to the basket and remaining aggressive on the boards and on defense.
  • Festus Ezeli: He's done a solid job defensively, but it will be interesting to see how well - or whether - he can establish himself on the offensive end against a post with NBA experience like Dexter Pittman.
  • Draymond Green: The questions about his defense will probably never cease until he plays a few real games so that's something to watch, but at this point I'm just enjoying watching Green play and more look forward to how he fits into the regular season scheme of things.
  • Justin Burrell vs. Jeremy Tyler: I love what Burrell has been doing in the first two games, but since Tyler is under contract I'd also like to see him outplay Burrell at least once during these five games. Picking up less than four fouls in the first five minutes might be a good start.
  • Charles Jenkins: He's doing a great job as a scorer, but I'd like to see more of what he can do as a distributor.
