gumbyorpokey is back with his highlights! Gotta love the Barnett gator eating and Udoh rewind

Talking Points (with gumbyorpokey back on the recap and these notes, you don't need to read anything unless I link to it)
  • Warriors were down 11 at half looking like they were limping home on the last game of a 5 game road trip.
  • Remember when the Hornets started off 11-1?  They're still 21-15 so this was a big road win.
  • Biedrins was back after missing 9 games with an ankle. He played sparingly, 13 minutes total leading to a -14 plus/minus.
  • This was the first game that all Warriors were healthy in the last 202 games. Amazing stat.....and time to fire the training staff.
  • Warriors won the turnover battle commiting a season low 8 of them.
  • Warriors were down by 10 starting the 4th quarter and tied the game in just 3 minutes.
  • Warriors built a 10 point 4th quarter lead only to choke it away until Udoh's shake n' bake, Lee's cold blooded jumper, and free throw shooting got them the win.
  • Warriors got to the line 32 times!  But they still lost the FT battle 32-33.
  • Curry & Ellis scored a combined 50 points this game.
  • They are saying this was Epke Udoh's coming out party.  He's a quick leaper and was +17.  He scored 6 points on a follow up tip in, his first dunk of the season after a great Monta dish, and the Scola-esq shake n' bake of David West.
  • Amundson pulled down 12 boards but is shooting a pathetic 30.8% from Free Throw.
  • Next game:  @ rOracle Friday 1/7 vs. Cavs.  Finally home where they play 14 of the next 16 in Oakland.
