Air Alamo had a chance to ask some question’s to Fansided’s Golden State Warrior’s blog Blue Man Hoop about tonight’s game between the Warriors and the Spurs.
We asked Blue Man Hoop’s editor Eric He some questions about the Warriors’ season so far and inquired about their thought’s for tonight’s game.
Below are the questions Air Alamo asked along with responses from Eric! Check them out to get an inside look at the Golden State Warriors!
Also, after you check these questions out, check out our responses to the questions Eric asked us here!
What do you attribute to the Warriors’ fast 5-1 start this season?
Steve Kerr’s new offensive system — the Warriors rank first in the league in field-goal percentage and third in points per game. They also rank first in defensive field goal percentage, which I would argue is more impressive. I think the arrival of a new coaching staff and a new system has ignited this team to a fast start.w
Can the Warriors keep rolling along?
I don’t see why not, as long as they stay healthy and cut down on turnovers. The Warriors are last in the league in turnovers — they had 27 of them in Sunday’s loss to Phoenix — and they can’t keep doing that if they expect to beat good teams like the Suns or Spurs.
How will David Lee’s injury affect the Warriors?
Lee is out two weeks with a sprained hamstring — I don’t see it affecting the team much because they’ve been doing just fine without him. Draymond Green has been very impressive starting in place of Lee, and I actually expect Lee to come off the bench even when he gets 100% healthy. Lee may be, in all honesty, the least important core player on the Warriors.
What are the keys to winning for the Warriors?
As mentioned, the Warriors have to cut down on turnovers, avoid unforced, sloppy errors as well as silly fouls. The Spurs are not a team that will give second chances.
Final Prediction for Tonight’s Game
If the Spurs choose to rest Parker and Duncan, then the Warriors should prevail. For the sake of argument, though, I think a fully healthy and motivated Spurs team will be a tough challenge for this Warriors squad that has not had success against San Antonio in the past.
