Preseason: David Lee Shines as Warriors Beat Jazz


The Warriors are at it again in the preason, this time on their home floor. As fans finally got a live glimpse of how their team played, they weren’t disappointzed. David Lee scored a double double, of course. He filled up the stat sheet. This was a more laid back game, but the Warriors were still looking to compete. Harrison Barnes and Brandon Rush, once again, matched each other’s output. I believe Rush will be their starting SF. On a slow night in Oracle, the Warriors scared us fans a little bit towards the end. They did, however, pull off the a slim victory.

Klay Thompson’s missed shot with 5 seconds left, which gave the Jazz some hope to tie the game, but they were unable to hit the shot.

A lot of Warriors had powerful drives and dunks today. They were showcasing a little bit of their talent to the home crowd.Each player got involved in the rotation, and played with heart. Klay Thompson once again had double digits somehow, but was in a bit of a shooting slump in a lazy game.

It was exciting to see Curry back in the rotation. He didn’t play too much, nor did he have any kind of offensive night, but he filled the stat sheet with his assists, and was moving quite nicely for a guy who has been out for over 3 months.

Landry, Jack, and even Ezeli played well. Landry had more than 5 rebounds, which is what the Warriors are looking for. Ezeli is really looking to be the backup option at center, as he is learning how to play in the NBA very quickly.He knows where to be at the right time as he picked up 4 blocks. The Warriors have still yet to see the output of Draymond Green, who is still out due to his Knee Inflammation.
