OAKLAND – There it was, at long last, a performance ripe for the skeptics to seize upon and sprint to a self-satisfied conclusion about the Warriors.


OAKLAND – Andrew Bogut was introduced with the starting lineup for the Warriors Tuesday night but never took the floor with his teammates.


The Warriors are just the ninth team in NBA history to start a season 21-2.

Five of the previous eight reached the NBA Finals, with four winning the title.
