Explain One Play: Curry stops Harden but W’s end sloppy

Explain One Play: Curry stops Harden but W’s end sloppy

Video analysis of how Warriors sloppiness gave away the game, and wasted Curry’s stops of Harden down the stretch, in the Rockets-Warriors game on October 17, 2017. The Warriors lost to Houston on opening night, wasting a wild effort from Nick Young, many unexpected minutes from the youngsters Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney, and almost overcoming injuries to Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala. I made a little movie looking at the key plays down the stretch. You’ll see: Patrick McCaw almost hit the deciding basket, getting the open corner shot from the gravity of Stephen Curry. Good job...

Andre Iguodala to miss Warriors’ season opener vs. Rockets

Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala has been ruled out of Tuesday night’s season opener against Houston with a strained back, the team announced. Iguodala had previously been listed as questionable. After missing Friday’s preseason finale against Sacramento, he appeared on the mend, fully participating in practice Monday. Small forward Omri Casspi, who had been probable with a mild right ankle sprain, will be available Tuesday. With Iguodala out, Casspi, Nick Young and Patrick McCaw figure to see more playing time. Starting in place of...

ESPN lists Jordan Bell among most underrated rookies for the long-term

ESPN lists Jordan Bell among most underrated rookies for the long-term

Before starting for the Warriors in their preseason finale, ESPN had Jordan Bell among their most underrated players. But how much longer can his talent go unnoticed? As founder and president of the Patrick McCaw Hall of Fame Awareness Association, it can sometimes be difficult to deviate from the company line that sometimes requires a singular focus on the second-year wingman. Yet Golden State Warriors rookie Jordan Bell is proving himself worthy of at least equal adulation, if not more; it's gotten to the point where the PMHoFAA might have to consider expanding its mission a bit. Bell got...

Warriors discover their true depth after putting the Kings in a grave

Warriors discover their true depth after putting the Kings in a grave

Jordan Bell, Nick Young, Patrick McCaw and a number of other reserve players showcase their skills in helping bring the Warriors a victory in their final preseason game. Coming into the final exhibition game, there wasn’t really much left for the team to figure out for the Golden State Warriors. Rotations were mostly set and roles defined. However, with the shortened preseason, Steve Kerr was looking forward to using this last game as a nice tuneup. But with some of the Warriors’ core guys sitting out due to minor injuries, the focus for the game switched to getting the bench and...

Explain One Play: Jordan Bell to Patrick McCaw 3

Jordan Bell makes a good un-rookie-like read to find Patrick McCaw for a 3 in the Kings-Warriors game on Oct 13, 2017. I know some of you might think it’s a little weird to write every article about a guy Jordan Bell who’s not even in the rotation. And have I mentioned I have an irrationally good feeling about this guy? Anyway, it’s only been four straight articles, so what’s one more? Explain One Play: Jordan Bell putback dunk Explain One Play: Jordan Bell passes for layups Explain One Play: How Draymond got Jordan Bell a dunk Three future plays for Jordan Bell And last article,...

Explain One Play: Jordan Bell putback dunk

Video analysis of Jordan Bell and his solid reads, in our fourth consecutive article about him from the Warriors-Timberwolves game on Oct 8, 2017. Have I mentioned I have an irrationally good feeling about Jordan Bell? I really was going to write about something else today, like Patrick McCaw, but Bell just forced his way back, just like I hope he forces his way into Kerr’s rotation for real minutes this year. And why break the streak? Four straight articles about Mr. Bell and counting! In his highlights today from the Warriors vs Timberwolves game in China, we saw the usual high...

Las Vegas Shooting hits close to home for Warriors’ Patrick McCaw

SHENZHEN, China — Finding reliable Wi-Fi in Shenzhen has been tricky for Patrick McCaw. Typically, that would be a relatively trivial concern. But in the wake of one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history Sunday night in Las Vegas, a city McCaw calls his “second home,” the need for a good signal has been paramount. “My phone hasn’t been working,” McCaw, the Warriors’ second-year shooting guard, said before an optional workout Tuesday afternoon at Shenzhen City Arena. “It’s working, then it’s not. When I’m on a Wi-Fi that...

Three future plays for Jordan Bell

Three future plays for Jordan Bell

A video breakdown of Warriors plays that Jordan Bell could run well. I know rookies take a while to catch up to the speed of the NBA game. I know rookies don’t get that much time and have a tight leash early on. I know this is especially true when Jordan Bell is buried in the depth chart below Draymond Green, Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, and David West. But... have I mentioned that I have an irrationally good feeling about this guy? I just have a soft spot for guys like him and Patrick McCaw who are humble, smart, hard working, unselfish, defend and do the dirty work, and have a feel...

Patrick McCaw’s NBA future depends on this season

Patrick McCaw’s NBA future depends on this season

Fan favorite Patrick McCaw showed poise, defensive potential, and shooting ability in his rookie season. Since he’ll be a restricted free agent in 2018, his upcoming season will determine his NBA destiny. Despite a team full of stars, rookie Patrick McCaw became a fan favorite, just another example of the Warriors snagging a key player for pennies on the dollar. Patrick McCaw was originally drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 38th pick in the 2016 NBA draft, and was traded to the Warriors for cash considerations. It was later revealed that the Warriors gave up 2.4 million dollars for...
