If you think the Warriors don’t play any defense, try catching a Grizzlies game. At least the Warriors force turnovers and rack up steals. Memphis doesn’t even do that.
You should’ve seen Juan Carlos Navarro and Damon Stoudamire trying to guard Baron Davis and Monta Ellis. Actually, the numbers tell you all you need to know.
Baron/Monta: 45 points, 17-for-33 shooting, 11 assists, 9 rebounds, 3 steals, 4 turnovers
Damon/Juan: 25 points, 11-for-26 shooting, 9 assists, 7 rebounds, 2 steals, 3 turnovers
Aside from Rudy Gay, and I guess Pau Gasol, who I’ve never been a big fan of, this team leaves a lot to be desired. I really thought they were going to contend for the eighth spot. What was I thinking?
And what were you all thinking, everyone who wanted the Warriors to sign Darko Milicic? Boy were you guys off base!
