Does anyone have a torrent for this game? I didn't make my way to the pub until the second half. Wouldn't mind seeing the first.

He does have to use more players though, that is noe of the teams best strengths, depth. BWright could be effective in about 10mins a game

A nice win on Sunday. Unexpected as well. The way things were going in the second half, I expected the Warriors to hang close and lose at the end, but the exact opposite happened.

All credit to the Warriors for their resiliency and determination in staying the game and ultimately taking the lead and holding on.

This is not to take away from what the Warriors did, but the Raptors shot themselves right out of the game yesterday. The Warriors were able to get them to play their style, particularly in the 4th quarter when the Raptors should have been trying to slow it down and take good shots. Instead the likes of Jamario Moon, Jason Kapono and others were just launching ill-advised shot after ill-advised shot. Credit the Warriors for getting the game to the pace they wanted.

I can't say enough about the play of Andris Biedrins over the last two games. It is not coincidental that his level of play has raised and the Warriors have won their first two games of the season. He has to continue to perform as he has.

It was nice to see Stephen Jackson on the floor as well. He is a leader and the team needs him to succeed. Let's hope things can continue in a positive light on Tuesday at the Garden against a beatable Knicks team.

If they're not producing, then sure... bench the rooks. But our rookies are producing, and they should get more PT.

my sentiments exactly...

AB's surprisingly been playing well the last two games. let's hope this is a precursor of what we're going to see every game from him. i hope he proves me wrong...

and sjax brings stability and confidence and someone else we can go to instead of having to over-rely on BD..

raptors dont have any big guys..except bosh and jackson did a great job on him

against the knicks im sure we'll see him


part of it also is that the team is on the road and young players don't necessarily respond/play well on the road. there's a certain comfort level (as well as confidence) playing at home in front of 19,000 cheering fans. rookies and young players feed off this more than experienced players...

nelson will gradually give them more PT on road games..

i agree. veterans are able to sort of channel out the crowd when theyre playing on someone elses court. when you havent had the experience you get tense and uncomfortable.
