Asked about the injury after the game, point guard Jarrett Jack shook his head in disbelief before answering. “It had me in a daze for a little while,” said a very emotional Jack. “I’ve known Brandon probably longer than anybody in here. I knew him as a rookie. We both went to Indiana the same year – lived next door to each other, literally. He’s one of my really, really good friends. To watch that happen, it took the air out of me for a little bit.” The Warriors still had about 40 minutes of basketball to play, but after losing such an important piece of their team and friend to injury, it clearly took its toll on them. “I think that took a little bit out of us just because this is a tight knit group and we know how big of a year this is for him” said coach Mark Jackson. “Just an unfortunate, unfortunate break.” Jack talked about what it was like in the moments after Rush went down. “I know personally for me, my heart was pounding,” he said. “He’s a really great kid, fun-loving kid. Nobody deserves to get hurt but if there was a person who didn’t deserve it, it was him.” WarriorsWorld.net

Seems battle for SF job is a 2-man race: Brandon Rush v. Harrison Barnes. Sources say Rush has advantage because... Rush is clearly the better defender at this point. The starting lineup needs someone who can really make it tough for opposing perimeter stars, and Rush is even better with Andrew Bogut backing him up. Plus, to this point, Rush is shooting better. If Barnes did start, it would likely be because Mark Jackson already knows that Rush can thrive off the bench. Bringing Barnes off the bench, adding the task feeling a game out and getting going after sitting, might take away Barnes' aggressiveness and impact. Sulia

But Rush, who had a breakout season with Golden State last year, said he isn't planning for a return to his role as sixth man. With forward Dorell Wright traded to Philadelphia last month, the Warriors have a vacancy Rush hopes to fill. "I'm coming in trying to get that starting job at (small forward)," Rush said. "I've been working hard the entire summer to build up on that." Oakland Tribune
