A Roller Coaster Ride with the Warriors
Last night at Oracle was Wilt Chamberlain bobble head night, which was fitting. What was even more fitting…Mo Speights having the game of his life against his old team. Speights went 12 of 15 from the field with 32 points. Off topic, Mo really needs to do something about that wart or whatever the fuck that is on his head. That thing has taken on an identity of its own. I heard it goes by the nickname “Mort” these days. Short for Mort the Wart. Mort is a little bit shy and tends to hide from photographers. However, he can be seen in these 2 photos chillin with Mo on the top right portion of his head…
Mo could take a note from Uncle Buck… “Not her wart. Not her wart. I’m..I’m the wart. She’s my tumor, my, my growth. My uh my pimple.I’m “Uncle WarT”. Just old Buckwart Russell. That’s what they call me. Or, a, melanoma head. They’ll call me that. “Melanoma head’s” comin.”
Uncle Buck rules…now back to the Dubs.
The Dubs beat the Sixers last night 123-80, but lets not get too excited, it was only the Sixers. I’m proud of Mo and Mort, but we have issues to deal with right now. The past 5 games have been a roller coaster. Beat the Jazz 95-90, lose to the Bobcats 91-75, beat the Bulls 102-87, lose to the Suns 122-109. So after our win over the Sixers last night, we are destined to lose to Bron Bron and the Heat tomorrow night.
Against the Bobcats on Tuesday, February 4th, Oakland transformed into Turnover City after the Dubs turned the ball over 16 times. David Lee wasn’t fully healthy and Harrison Barnes didn’t play to his full potential. Regardless, 16 turnovers was a recipe for destruction. The Bulls game was an entirely different story. With Bogut and Lee out, the team showed character and rallied to comeback and win 102-87. It was also great to see Draymond Green dunk on Joakim Noah and go nuts afterwards. Then a loss to the Suns and a win over the Sixers continued the up-and-down roller coaster ride with the Dubs.
1. Bogut is out with a left shoulder injury and will not be playing against the Heat tomorrow.
2. Jermaine O’Neal will sit another one out with his newly repaired right wrist.
3. David Lee still isn’t fully healthy and is expected to play C tomorrow night with Draymond Green at PF.
4. Harrison Barnes is lacking consistency.
The good thing is that the All Star Break is right around the corner and injured players will have some time to rest. I hope we don’t continue this pattern and we are able to upset the Heat at home tomorrow night.
