I wonder how many games this year we have given a bench player their season or career high? It happened again tonight with Quincy Douby aka Michael Jordan Jr. His career high was 8 points before tonight's 21 point performance.

It happens too often and shows the lack of defense of the team!

Seriously Its pretty crazy. I wonder what the record is for the team that allows the most players to set career highs? Can somebody check this cause i think the warriors might be closing in on the mark.

Once again, it will, and always will be the inability to perform on the road. The Warriors are 2-10 on the road. And the worse thing about it... it's still going to happen. If they keep this up, they'll end up finishing the season under .500. Winning at home is important, but winning on the road is just as significant.
Don't hate yourself in the morning... sleep 'til noon.

James Jones for the Suns.

Season high 10 points.

25 points against the W's on 1/9

3 double/doubles for the rest of the Suns. Ouch

Just another sign of the lack of defense the team plays

Happens in almost every game, just uncanny.

Most of the time this seems to be an average player who has suddenly assumed Super Power Stealth status. He shoots 3 after 3, uncontested, and nobody sees him. All the Ws look at each other, their eyes full of blame and self-absolution.

Why be surprised? He makes millions of dollars to shoot that shot and not much else.

What to do?

First, forget trying to stop the stars. The Ws have not ever been able to stop your basic super star types. They can only hope for an off-night or the 24-hour flu.

Most role shooters shoot from the same place every time, so even if the Ws can't actually see him, they can still defend the spot, say the right baseline corner.

Your average good-shooting role player usually does not have that many offensive options, so by taking away the spot, the Ws can prevent that "unexpected" 27-point outburst every night.

If the Ws could limit every night's designated stealth player by even 10 points, their record would be much better.

You are assuming Nelson has any control over the W's when it comes to defense at all, or that he cares to. When not one player on your team can play proper one-on-one defense at all (even Pietrus's form and tecnique are incorrect), why should they care enough to even try to something so complicated as what you are suggesting? If not one player will block out properly on one single play and the coach won't hold them to it, why should they care? None of the Warriors takes a personal pride in man to man defense; but hey, we are second in the league in scoring, that's the only thing fans today care about anyway, so we are getting what we are asking for.
