* Morrow is ridiculous. He needs to get the rock more. Period.
* Funny moment. In the first quarter, the Warriors had the ball and Monta was driving. Monta had a collision with a player, and the sideline ref, I think it was Mark Wunderlich, was gearing up to call a blocking fouled. Before he could get his hands to his hips, the signal for a blocking foul, his colleague called an offensive foul on Ellis. Ronny, as any player would, contested to the referee who was going to call the block. The ref denied it.
Ronny, every the debater, spent a brief moment talking with the ref. His expressions looked as if he were telling the ref “are you serious right now? you really going to say you didn’t make the block.” Eventually, Ronny walked off smiling. It was so funny because the ref clearly was getting ready to call the block. He was more than halfway into the signal. Why would he deny it? He could have just said the other ref saw something I didn’t see. Instead, he was like the kid claiming he didn’t eat the cookie with crumbs all on his mouth. He straight acted like he was about to make a different gesture, but it was nothing like what he actually did. Just one of those funny things you rarely see.
* Check out this quote from Jackson. He was asked about the Warriors’ third-quarter run to get back into the game, cutting it to four:
“I guess we did. I really wasn’t paying too much attention. They did what they needed to do to win the game. They’re trying to get a playoff spot and the played like it tonight.”
That’s all I got. It’s my turn for furlough, starting Friday. I’ll holla when I get back. Look out for a Stay or Go, though.
