All signs point to a slump stopper. Bogut is still fresh, Vegas has us by 8.5, the Suns are sorry... It all adds up to a Golden State W. We can only hope at this point.

This should be a blowout, even though they won last night at Portland. Seriosuly, i can't stand any more losses, especially not at home against a brutal Phoenix-team which best player is Goran Drakitz.

Back to our winning ways, I just hope they find the opportunity to adjust. This is the NBA you can't be complacent and look like amateurs out there.

It better be (a comfortable win). We need all the confidence we need with approaching san antonio and road trip, for the wins are likely to be scarce/hard to come by.
And only devil knows what this never ending losing streak/few wins might do to our young Warriors psyche with Lakers creeping behind (which we will still play 2 times) and an outside of playooff bounds getting closer.

Lol

Warriors execute in the half court very well. Love the unique problem solving though, do something or tear it down and start over.

I say warriors hal-court is only good when curry has the ball and is blitzed, which extrats one more defending player from inside three point ark and so creates space for passing, which HAS to be fast/quick.

Link 1: http://hoopspeak.com/2013/01/dont-try-t ... d-offense/

Also, because teams blitz curry early in the shotclock, it creates early offense.

Link 2: http://www.82games.com/comm32.htm

If it does not work we more often than not rely on late clock random shots. Obvious solution - run your offense fast, make quick desicions, if you can - knock an opponent in first rounds (fastbreak), if you can't, have your half-court offense set to destroy opposition in first 10 seconds of possesion - this is a blueprint for most teams that have no dominating post players that could work for fouls and double teams and thus make a slow half-court offense workable.

Link 3: http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/dish/20 ... r-win-more

The best way is to think of defense as part of the offense - as mentioned in second article early defense is also essential, by executing in early defense and offense you achieve a control of the pace of the game, you put another team on the receiving end and make it ponder about adjustments.
