The S.F. Chronicle’s Janny Hu brought up a good point in garbage time Wednesday. Why not play Patrick O’Bryant?
Ever the Warriors apologist (so some of you think), I didn’t have an answer. They were down big, they were showing no life and no fight. Why not play Pattie, let him get some burn against Andrew Bogut?
What was even more perplexing was when Nellie called down for Adonal Foyle to check into the game, for the first time, with the game out of reach. What was that for?
Nellie has Barnes, Azubuike and Josh Powell on the floor with Sarunas and Foyle. I get why the really youngsters were out there. I get why Sarunas is out there (don’t want Monta to get an injury in garbage time). But why is Foyle out there? What’s with the charity minutes for the seasoned vet? Isn’t $8.5 million enough of a consolation prize?
