That second unit tonight–if you put David in there, you’ve got Lee, Iguodala, Livingston, Ezeli and Barbosa… That’s a pretty interesting group. Bogut: I just said to (USA Today’s) Sam Amick, our third group could probably be a second group on most teams. Thing is, there’s not enough minutes. We’ve got a very deep roster–the guys you just mentioned. Some nights, someone’s going to get screwed out of minutes. You know what I mean? But I think we understand it makes us better as a team, we’re 4-0, we’re winning games, everything’s positive. San Jose Mercury-News

Thompson deflected a lot of the praise for his hot start to teammates, specifically Andrew Bogut. "We're just scratching the surface of what we can be," Thompson declared. "Coach Kerr has really put an emphasis on moving the ball. We're without one of our best passing big men right now in David Lee. When we get him back, he's gonna make us that more dangerous ... Andrew Bogut has been such a good player for us. I can't describe how good his passing is. He gets me so many good looks every night. I should give a percentage of my contract to him now..."

Then, he got to the absurd notion that his team committed one measly foul in the first half, after which they trailed 65-42. “I’ve never been in a game where a team scores 65 points and we have one foul,” Rivers said. “That, to the core, bothers me to no end. I mean, I have never seen that before. And I think the foul was late and it was a mistake; it probably wasn’t a foul. So for me, I’m doing something wrong because that’s as soft as you can probably get in a game. One foul at halftime? Are you (expletive) kidding me? I mean, that’s as bad as I’ve seen.” Los Angeles Daily News

The 6-foot-7 Green is due a raise after proving himself as a clutch playoff performer, versatile defender and improving jump shooter. “Maybe he’ll give me a discount?” Myers joked of his former boss Tellem. “Probably not, right?” Contra Costa Times

What’s changed for Curry this season has been the presence of assistant coach Ron Adams, a longtime veteran of NBA coaching who’s known for his defensive excellence. “Just holding me to a higher standard,” Curry said of Adams’ influence. “Obviously we watch a lot of film and talk a lot about just how we’re supposed to see that end of the floor, what it means if I’m able to do what I’m supposed to do every single night for our team’s success. It doesn’t matter how many points I score. He seems to find that one or two things that I can do better on the defensive end after every game that kind of knocks you back into reality a little bit. You can always get better, and I have to be to be a championship-caliber point guard and for us to try to get where we’re trying to go.” Contra Costa Times

As is always the case when the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers prepare to face off tonight, that tired, overused, overly-simplistic word that doesn't truly define what they have going here was dragged out yet again. Rivalry. "It's not a rivalry," Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala said with a grin as he clocked out Tuesday afternoon at the team's practice facility. "Neither one of these teams has done anything." USA Today Sports

Zach Lowe: Not sure if this has been reported yet, but Klay Thompson's extension is technically not a max. Explanation tomorrow on @Grantland33. (The difference is probably going to be negligible/nothing, but GSW did something interesting with Klay's contract). Twitter @ZachLowe_NBA

Warriors center Andrew Bogut, the 29-year-old Australian who missed the entire playoff series against the Clippers with a rib injury, is looking forward to re-entering this not-so-friendly fray. "It's not that I enjoy it," Bogut said when asked if he relishes the no-love-lost dynamic of this matchup. "If (physicality) happens, it happens. Some games, it happens and I'm happy to battle and wrestle and scrap and claw and fight and do whatever you have to do. And some games it doesn't happen. "I'm one of the few guys that doesn't have a boatload of friends that I party with in the summer in Vegas that are in the NBA. I kind of go and do my own thing, so I'm not one of those guys that's schmoozing guys before the game or at halftime. So I don't really care once they think of me once the game is over."
