[RECAP: Warriors 94, Jazz 83]
23 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, only 2 turnovers.…18 points in the first. Curry took it up a notch in this one, looking completely dominant. He had a couple of dribble drives straight from the And-1 tour! Oh by the way, the Jazz point guards (minus Mo’Williams) scored a grand total of…zero. An all-star effort from Curry.
Biedrins entered the game 2-and-half minutes in due to Ezeli’s defensive struggles and dominated with 12 rebounds, a block and great defense on Al Jefferson. He did everything but score in this one.
His streak of 12 straight games with at least 20 points on 50% shooting came to an end. And even then, he came really close…scoring 18 points on 7 of 16 shooting…9 boards too, by the way.
15 points on 5 of 9 shooting. And, he got in faces of 6'10ers Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors to standup of for one of his teammates. As usual, Jack was a leader and a producer.
Only shot 5 of 13, despite taking only 3 points shots from 3 point range. But, I thought he played heads up help defense. He also had a nice steal late in the 1st half. And, he had a great sequence early in the 2nd half where he was taking the ball to the hole and finishing like Latrell Sprewell in his prime!
Again, not much scoring for Green. But, again, he gets his hands in passing lanes. And, he forces Hayward to step on the out of bounds line in the second half. He always brings it defensively.
Only 16 minutes on this night. He managed to knock down a triple en route to 7 points.
Landry, the tough low post guy, fell in love with his jumper on this night—which does a lot to explain his 4-12 shooting.
Classic case of eager young player biting like a pit bull on the up fake. Al Jefferson really used him in the first 2 minutes. But, he played much smarter to start the 3rd quarter. He even had a good finish for his only bucket of the game.
