The Warriors were already without center James Wiseman (wrist injury, out 7-10 days) when Kevon Looney also went down with a twisted ankle in a 111-107 loss to the Celtics. Ray and Joe dissect the game which included a 38-point night from Steph Curry. Kelly Oubre wasn’t at his best and we are left to wonder if his days in San Francisco are numbered.
The Warriors beat the Timberwolves for the second straight game as Kelly Oubre, Jr. shook off a trade rumor (New Orleans) and had one of his best all-around performances. James Wiseman obviously doesn’t mind coming off the bench as he scored a career high 25 points. Ray and Joe discuss their impact and assess why the Warriors can still win a game when Steph Curry isn’t their leading scorer.
The Warriors pulled off another dramatic comeback win against a Los Angeles team, this time beating the defending champion Lakers at Staples Center on Monday night 10 days after a thrilling win over the Clippers. Ray and Joe analyze the victory that saw Golden State rebound from a 19-point deficit. Kelly Oubre, Jr. was impressive in his best game as a Warrior and the bench had solid contributions all around. In the end it was Steph Curry’s big 3 that made the difference and “the old” Draymond was also a big key to the win.
