Artest didn't have a big game. Him and Bibby combined were awful shooting the ball. The only reason why they racked up that many points was because of all the free throws they received thanks to the Warriors not being able sustain ground on a jumper or drive. Martin was the only real bright spot for the Kings.

Biedrins was a beast once again and Barnes exploded offensively. Everyone contributed as much as they could, and Baron didn't have to put up 30+ points. Like I said, Baron does not need to put up a sh*tload of points just so the Warriors can win. When he can get guys to contribute off his ability to create, then the Warriors can win.

The kings really are a sorry ass team. No shotblockers, not much good outside shooting. Not much of a transition game (though Kevin Martin is good at both). I am glad I am not a Kings fan.

A great win last night for the Warriors! They needed this one and they got it. The first half was eerily similar to the Seattle game on Sunday, but the second half the Warriors were able to withstand and attempt at a run by the Kings and win comfortably.

This was a total team effort. From Baron getting everyone involved and Andris Beidrins shooting and rebounding well to Matt Barnes' career evening and Mike Dunleavy's solid contribuition off the bench, this was a nice game for the Warriors.

Hopefully Tracey McGrady's back won't allow him to play against the Rockets on Thursday night. I am also hoping that the Warriors can play a better game than they did last Tuesday against the same Rockets.

Dumbleavy could have done a lot better. He couldn't even capitolize on the mismatch when Bibby was gaurding him one on one. Towards the end of the third quater, every time down the court there was a series of plays in which Dunleavy would flash to the elbow and would only be guarded by Bibby. Dumbleavy didn't even think about backing him in or doing a turn around jumper. He would pass it out or turn the ball over.

I guess Dumbleavy didn't realize that he is about 8 inches taller Bibby and that he has the advantage in this situation...

Too many 3s. Glad they won the game. Mike D seriously needs to just step inside the line and hit the mid-range jumper. He's consistent with those and the fans would boo him less since he'd be hitting them. Great games all around from everyone who played including Foyle.

We are not going to shoot 50% from three and 65% from the field every night and barnes and dun definetly cannot be counted on for 30 and 20 respectively each night. Thing I liked best was Murphy not getting a single minute. Still good game just shows how good this team can be certain nights (and we can also have our san antonio and houston nights)


fun to watch but i agree. especially away from the oracle. and how about AB perfect from the line!!

Great performance!

Barnes looking like a stayer more and more. Pietrus and dun playing well and Biedrins showing he is VERY valuable to the team!

Inconsistent play by the team though this season

Oh it's very consistant. At home we play pretty well, on the road we suck.

I agree. We shot way too many 3's, we just happened to make them. This won't happen at all consistently. We need to find other ways to score if we struggle on jump shots.

Mike also did get clubbed twice. The second was called a flagrant but the first seemed to look like one also. I'm not a fan of Dun but that was pretty dangerous hit.

On another note, Biedrins was perfect from the charity stripe! :shock: I doubt that will continue against the Rockets though. He's not consistent from the line. And Barnes had a solid game. Which is one reason why I forget that he was the training camp invitee and Dun was already on the team. I got all caught up with his play that I thought Dun would be one of those T.C. invitees who'd get cut.

I have to disagree - if McGrady plays on Thursday,i definitely want him playing against the Rockets :mrgreen:
