Well, that's one way to bounce back from a 40 point loss. The Warriors have never looked better this season, and they won a game that they absolutely had to win to stay in the race for the eighth spot in the west. J-Rich looked amazing through three quarters, Crazy Stephen Jackson (or CSJ for short), was the glue the entire night, and they hung on to win at the end. A few other observations:
- Baron looked great most of the night, but during the last six minutes of the forth, he reverted back to the pound the ball, shoot too much point guard of his past. When Baron plays the role of the distributor, the Warriors are hard to stop. I don't know why he stopped playing that role in the last half of the fourth.
- If Monte Ellis learns how to hit a 18 foot jumper consistently, he's going to be hard to stop.
- Steve Nash was a liability today on defense. Whenever Nelson had Nash in a mismatch, he had the Warriors exploit it. It got the point where D'Antoni almost had no choice but to take him out for a little while.
- Those city jersey's are sick.
