The Best of the Warriors in 11 Years
by: Cathy Jones
There is a new feeling in Oakland, a fanatical town crazy for NBA.
The Warriors have been on a winning streak since last February, when they finished last season with 18 wins in 28 games. If they keep up the strong play behind their 12-6 start to this season, Baron Davis and his new teammates just might us something to celebrate in April.
Even after dropping three of their last four games, the Warriors began a five-game road trip this weekend with their best 22-game start since 1991. They briefly reached first place in the Pacific Division for the first time since 1992.
The Warriors haven't been a team worth watching this last few years but Coach Mike Montgomery has turned the declining Warriors into a team that you want to see in action. The team has produced a lot of great moments in every game with no-look passes and impossibly tough lay-ups, while two-time dunk contest champion Richardson is polishing his skills.
Sometimes it doesn't work: Though the Warriors set season highs with 15 3-pointers on 37 attempts in Wednesday's game against Houston, they lost in overtime when they couldn't protect an 11-point lead in the final 4 minutes of regulation.
Clearly, this transformation won't happen overnight -- but in Oakland, patience is part of the game.
