The Warriors whipped the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-94 on Sunday night. I covered the game and the Warriors’ beat writers wondered why I was there. I mean, it seems like there’s nothing new to write about the Warriors anymore. We know they are entertaining losers. Except on Sunday night they were entertaining winners. This may have been their best game all season. I wrote my Monday column about them — and I was glad I attended. To read the column click here.

    A six point win constitutes a ‘whipping’? Wonder how you would describe a ten point win?

    The Dubs beating ANY team by six points constitutes a whipping by their standards–wouldn’t you agree?
    And don’t even worry about a ten point win…

    I think you answer your own musings..the win with weird stats like that indicate a tired Thunder. On the other hand-last years Warriors still would have lost. David Lee sounds like Beidrens a few weeks ago when he had a big game..then faded back to average play.
    BUT..I sense Lowell likes Joe. And now we will getting these favorable posts more often..As long as they do well that is. I got to admit..other teams with better records dont look much more talented than GS. But thats another topic if GS wants to win this way(near .500,small) or trade for a more conventional winning team..

    Pretty sad that David Lee is at a comfort level with his 80 Million dollar contract, and it took fans and a couple of writter’s to critise him and out of no where he becomes Bill Russel with 19 rebounds.

    David Lee had a rough start, not only adjusting to a new team but also that nearly fatal freak accident in NY with the tooth embedded in his arm. He’s improving and its showing.

    He’s become a reliable jump shooter and passes well for a big man. Even though his rebounding has been less than anticipated, he’s always playing hard, which is more than I can say for some others in the past. He got the penultimate rebound last night, one in traffic from the weakside. Here’s hoping it is the first of many to come.

    Judge him by his effort, not his contract. (The front office should be judged by the contract not him.)

    Uhuh,I was right again-lol. David Lee followed his 19 rebounds “Now I know what I’ve been doing wrong all this time!” game, with four rebounds and six points. I heard it a thousands times…

    Even though my oldness saw that coming from a mile away..You would hope Andres or Davis would have put a 10 game solid streak together before the old “I’m cured,I know it now!”..lol,Youth,so hopeful.

    Yes, clearly, the 19 rebounds were the true David Lee, and the other 50+ games were the aberration. “Near fatal”? He had an infection, not TSS. And the contract is on Lee, because 80 mil should get you an actual All-Star, even at inflated NBA prices. Nobody forks over that kind of money for an honest but limited “hard worker.” Except, of course, the Warriors.

    And how many of those 19 rebounds were missed free throws? I bet he gobbled up a bunch.
