That's Game!! Great Win..
Stephen Curry has matched a season high with 38 (and counting).
Ben Gordon's first made 3 of the season (he had been 0-of-6). It was a big one pushing Bobcats' lead to 7 after Warriors closed to 2.
Jermaine O'Neal gets a technical. It started with O'Neal bumping Gerald Henderson.
Warriors have never led in this game. Not so sure that holds up over next 12 minutes.
Warriors shoot 47 percent from field and 43 percent from 3-point this season. Tonight: 41 percent from field, 31 percent from 3.
New season high for Gerald Henderson at 24-and-counting.
Gerald Henderson at 20 points. Season high is 23.
Kemba beats the shot clock with a 3. Big shot, 12-point lead.
Two offensive rebounds that possession rewarded for Warriors by Klay Thompson's 3.
Warriors heating up. Have made 5 of first 8 shots this half.
Gerald Henderson playing so hard, almost like it's personal. Where, again, did Harrison Barnes play in college?
Stephen Curry is 1-of-8. Of course Dirk Nowitzki was 1-of-10 1st half last week and that didn't turn out so well.
Bogut with 3 fouls in 12 minutes. He just nailed Kemba on a screen and was called for it.
Jermaine O'Neal is 35 but there's twice that much mileage on his NBA body.
Now either Sessions or Gordon has to guard Steph Curry. We'll see how long...
Anthony Tolliver hits a 3, his first attempt in 11 minutes. Ramon Sessions found him wide open.
McRoberts looks really focused tonight.
Anthony Tolliver has played 8 minutes so far without taking a shot. Isn't that his skill?
Jeff Adrien with a 15-foot airball. Yikes.
Warriors are 4-of-14 from the field, 0-of-5 from 3-point range.
So far Stephen Curry is scoreless (0-for-3), but has 3 assists for Warriors.
Josh McRoberts with a 3 and two early assists. Offense runs so much better when he's plugged in at high post.
Big Game Tonight! Lets Get This Win
Ben Gordon putting up some extra 3s with Mark Price pre-game. Ben might play a lot vs. Warriors tonight.
The plan tonight at small forward is start Anthony Tolliver, then move Gerald Henderson over to the 3. Play Gordon or Sessions at the 2.
Clifford said he's happy with rookie Southerland's progress, but it wouldn't be fair to throw him into the mix right now.
Clifford said it's unlikely MKG's and Taylor's injuries would throw James Southerland into rotation. Called Southerland "developmental."
I feel for D.J. Augustin. He just never had much self-confidence and that was a bad mix with Larry Brown's driving style as a coach.
The Warriors (Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes) are not the kind of team you want to have to guard without your best options.
Wake up & ProveEm'

Hey, I love watching Kobe Bryant, and I'm glad he's back. But the conspicuous pandering by ESPN, after an 8-turnover game, is ridiculous.
Loved Trent Dilfer's pseudo-breakdown of his daughter's volleyball highlights. Funny, genuine, silly in an endearing way.
The single most insurmountable truth in the NBA is big-market dominance. I know that because NY-Chicago-LA is a combined 42-57.
Kobe had eight turnovers tonight. I'm sure that will change, but anyone else in the NBA would have/should have been yanked.
Don't be surprised if Kendall Marshall ends up being part of the guard tryout in Memphis. Nice kid who needs/deserves a restart.
How many Cam Newton Voodoo dolls does tonight account for? Those Cajuns are mystical, magical people.
That was just plain weird. Gano, in perfect, dome conditions...
Mike Mitchell told Drew Brees, "Stop being soft." You don't call out Jordan or LeBron or...that guy in New Orleans with a ring.
I'm a huge admirer of Luke Kuechly. But needs to figure out how to be more effectual in pass coverage. That was too easy.
Saints drive started in November. Concluded in the end zone.
Legion of Whom having some issues.
Mitchell with a great stick.
So Luke Kuechly can get refs to pick up flags even when the offense is on the field. Impressive.
Riverboat and Michele Tafoya. Been a long time since she was opposite Jerry Vaillancourt on Charlotte radio.
Vasquez is a better NBA player than I anticipated, but there's not much headed to Toronto that makes you think, "Oh, that's why!"
Rudy Gay's salary -- $17,8M this season, $19.2M next season -- had to play a major role in the Raptors cutting bait so fast.
Rodney Harrison getting drilled on NBC for having said Cam should have been benched.
is Zach Johnson serious????
Regarding injuries, most significant one for Warriors tomorrow is Andre Iguodala's hamstring strain. Warriors list him as out.
Seems to be a race which New York NBA coach gets fired first.
Assuming Taylor can't play tomorrow, look for Anthony Tolliver to start vs. Warriors.
Jeff Taylor has a heel injury. Highly limited in practice. Questionable for Monday.
I don't see Biz (sprained ankle) at practice today, so guessing he's still out Monday vs. Warriors.
change usually isn't easy or painless
Organically -- impossibly -- the right people might play for the national championship. FSU and Auburn.
Prevailing narrative in college football was: Fla. State dominant, Buckeyes under-tested but great, nobody left worthy in SEC.
So, uh, Buckeyes...have you met Sparty?
Funniest thing I overheard today while Christmas shopping: "Duke is here? In football?" And then a look out of the "Walking Dead."
