Warriors Talking Points; 12/31/10 Warriors @ Bobcats

12/31/10 Game: Warriors @ Bobcats (thanks to gumbyorpokey for the recap video)

Talkings Points (now there's no need to read Rusty Simmon on
  • Warriors hand the Bobcats their first loss....under new coach Paul Silas who is now 2-1.
  • This game was noon PT.  They wanted to give the Warriors time to party on New Years Eve.
  • They also wanted to Warriors to play hung-over scheduling a game on New Years Day vs. The Heat.
  • The Warriors also played on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  This is only the 4th time in NBA History that a team has played on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day AND New Years Eve/New Years Day.
  • The Warriors started off hot with a double digit lead in the 1st quarter.
  • Stephen Jackson misses a shot at the buzzer which would have won the game. He no longer makes love to pressure.
  • Stephen Curry is from Charlotte, NC and went to Davidson which is in Charlotte.  He had a lot to do in his short time home and many Davidson fans came out to the game to support Steph.
  • Monta was clutch in the last few minutes making a tough leaner after a Warrior shooting drought and a sweet spin move. But then he fouled his defender off the ball with 8.5 seconds left giving Stack Jack a shot at the win.
  • Curry's shot looked great tonight hitting 4 of 5 from three.
  • Udoh got more burn with 17:32 played than Amundson with 14:10.  Curiously, Radmanovic played 32:16.  Possibly because he once played for Charlotte?
  • Warriors got to the line 16 times making 10.  Bobcats got the the line 28 times making 20.  -12 on the Free Throw comparison.
