Warriors explain their identity
One thing we've changed and you know locker -- -- practice we have to standings so when they walked in. Every day you can see where we are well. Every good team -- put it all we had that end. There's just a reminder of where you are what you have to do. Well Warriors hardly need a reminder of how well they're playing right now after all they do is be one of the hottest teams in the west and the Clippers the Mark Jackson still has his players. Sizing up the competition Jamie's Dyer has the scoop. On the secret to the warrior success this season. And lawyers may have made a statement to the rest of the league Wednesday by beating the Clippers but to then it was just another game. The -- did not need us to validate. All -- beating us to validate -- very good basketball team. And we didn't need to beat them to validate their world war but think thirteen hasn't had that. No we know that that we need to pay attention scouting report defense -- -- -- great job that we need to rebound the ball -- share the ball offensively. We do those things we know the -- and have a chance to win. That confidence. And awareness might also come from a more subtle change this season one that involves -- the top -- conference standings each day at the practice facility. What it does it makes you -- Began to. Recognize okay. You want to win and I blowing. This game. Tonight makes -- difference it. We're planning so I guess at that depends on where we are in the standings try to do would have been last year would have. You know her -- looked down at the standings but you know this year it is good to know. You know where where we stand and and also it's still -- still a lot of work to do. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The team -- at 2 o'clock on Thursday as they head out to LA to get ready for the rematch against the Clippers on Saturday night. When asked if a good rivalry is developing between these two teams head coach Mark Jackson said it's not a rivalry until both teams have done something. With the Warriors in Oakland I -- sire for Comcast sports net. They see me as you mentioned Saturday the two teams meet again as the Warriors we'll try to put LA for the third time this season and on paper -- looks like the ducks have the edge of the outside and rebound it they're so without competition. Both of these teams -- neck in neck in the standings are NBA and -- very few -- Chimes -- on the latest with this new -- right. Well I mean there's not one now there certainly will be. By the end of the next couple weeks when they play several more times. These teams obviously are battling for position in the Western Conference I still believe teams like the Utah Jazz. Probably closer to the Warriors as far as a rival right now because there. More similar in the way they play the Clippers and Warriors -- really contrasting style. But -- play up tempo fast athletic. The Warriors -- really about this -- defense and until lately. Take care of the ball and being that this type seed so I can see the rivalry happening because they're gonna play each other a lot. But I don't see is a natural one. Because they really have contrasting styles.
The Warriors are confident with their recent success but not cocky.
