After an atrocious finish in Chicago, I thought Bogut was looking real worn out and washed. But the last 2 games, he has put up spectacular performances. And he has been the defensive anchor of this team, 3 out of the last 5 games, we have held the opposition to real low shooting percentages. We have had (3) wins that were by a deficit of more than 20 and Bogut's been a huge factor.
12 points and 12 boards against Houston, with a few blocks, and a few assists. Against NO, 8 points, 9 boards, and 5 assists, and 4 blocked shots. He is playing like an elite center and is starting to round into shape. They say he is starting to look more and more springy. Great signs. And the great thing about Bogut is that he doesn't take away any production from David Lee. D Lee had his usual 20 pt 11 rebounds and 4 assists tonight. So now we have 2 guys getting boards at around 10 a game, not just one.
All year long, the Warriors have been getting these grind out wins. After a while, you really want to see some more control, especially against the medium teams. And the Warriors are finally starting to do that, handing NY, Houston, and New Orleans some of their biggest losses of the season. Good job dubs, let's hope they can finally end that SA road losing streak. I mean without Parker, and with Bogut, there has to be a chance.

Nice! I'd like to see a replay of that.
Yeah Stairway, I'll happily accept 9 boards, 5 assists and 4 blocks from the big man. Hopefully his ankle continues to improve and he can perform like this for the rest of the season.

Agreed. Followers of Bogut wouldn't exactly call this stretch "surprising." This is exactly the kind of impact Bogut will make when he's healthy.
