During last night's game vs. the Celtics, Jason Richardson was obviously having a difficult evening getting his timing and shot back to Jason Richardson form. On one fast break late in the 4th quarter Baron had the opportunity to either take the ball in for a layup/dunk or to get the ball to Richardson. Due, mainly from what I saw, to a tough evening shooting by Richardson, Davis decided to take the ball strong to the basket. The shot missed, but Davis was fouled and went to the free throw line. If Richardson was at full form, I believe that Davis would have passed the ball back to Richardson for the finish.
When healthy, Baron and Richardson are a lethal combination. When running the break, this Warrior team can get the ball into the basket.
The offense runs thru Baron Davis, and the team is lucky that it does.
Get Baron Davis a healthy 2 guard and front court players that can run the pick and roll as well as hit the open 20 foot jump shot, and we will have one of the four best point guards (Nash, Billups, Arenas, and Davis) in the game.
We had both of them at the same time for many games last year and we sucked royally then too. Man, your memory is really short!
