- THIS is the kind of player DLee can be when his jumper falls. It is literally the code to unlocking his entire game. Tonight, Lee consistently hit the 15-18 footer and it opened him up for the drive, forced attention on him leading to 6 assists, and got him to the line consistently. Lee has the same complex as Bosh and Amare where he seems to play with more energy when he's scoring well, so his 22 points were accompanied by 14 big rebounds, 3 steals, and the before-mentioned 6 dimes. My crystal ball predicted a big game out of Bogut, but I was wrong... It was Bogut's battery mate in the front court abusing Cleveland's D-Leaguers inside.
- 28, 7, and 6 from your lead guard in a loss... A sharp-shooting rookie with passing savvy... Absolutely zero inside help... An established head coach throwing up his hands, ready to shoot someone... My God, the Cav's are the 2009 Warriors!
- Steph Curry is truly an enigma this year. 15 first-quarter points, 6 in the following 3 quarters. But at least he hit all 3 of his free throws (he's now at 76% on the season). In the early part of this campaign, Curry is shooting 10 points worse than his career averages across the board.
- Carl Landry GETS BUCKETS. 19 and 9 on 80% shooting, 3-of-3 from the stripe, and 1 swat in 26 minutes. Don't look now, but the Warriors might have the best tandem at power forward in the league.
- The Warriors had 6 players in double-digit scoring (with Lee and Curry topping 20), and 4 guys dished out 5 or more assists. True team victory. And once again, the Dubs do it by out-rebounding their opposite number! 5 games in, against the Clippers, the Grizzlies, and huge nights from DeMarcus Cousins and Martin Gortat... And Golden State is sitting at #8 in the league in rebound differential!
