Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Klay Thompson knows he needs to be patient as he gets up to speed. Tuesday night was a sign it’s paying off, as he had his best game since he returned and led the Warrior is scoring for the first time since Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals:

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Andrew Wiggins on adjusting to Klay & Steph on the court together:
“I feel like I’m still getting the shots I want to get. I’m still getting the touches. Now, we have more weapons. We added another big weapon, with Klay in the starting lineup. It makes us that more dangerous.” – 1:47 AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Steve Kerr on if he can see Jonathan Kuminga playing center at times:
“No, I can see that. I think he’s more likely to play with Draymond as a five. In a switching lineup, where they’re playing the four and the five together, and switching everything.” – 1:03 AM

#Pistons Dwane Casey on Rodney McGruder: “Love his veteran presence and the way he competed…Rodney set the tone in the second half. With his scoring, he went in there with conviction and toughness.” – 12:38 AM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Asked Dwane Casey about the Warriors’ offense being the opposite of Toronto, more off-ball movement, pindowns: Said he was disappointed with their approach to the off-ball stuff after nailing it home before the game. Did add, though, he thought they improved on it in second half. – 12:38 AM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey: “This is a great lesson for us to learn from, because this is a championship team — we played two championship teams (Phoenix) back to back.” – 12:37 AM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Dwane Casey said they talked about Golden State’s off-ball movement before the game. “This team consistently and persistently comes and cuts, weakside, strongside, splits. If you’re not ready to defend that, it’s a long night.” – 12:37 AM

Steph Curry just had a couple fingers on his left hand taped together. Typically the sign of a jammed finger. Warriors up 20 to open the 4Q, so if they keep that lead healthy, he probably won’t return. But looks able to, if needed. – 11:50 PM

Curry just came back to the bench after a brief visit to the locker room. Looked like he had been looking at his non-shooting hand. – 11:47 PM

Steph Curry down the tunnel after exiting the game with Rick Celebrini. Stopped briefly to look at his left palm/hand (not the one he hurt the other night, a new issue). Celebrini and Curry decided it best they go to the locker room to check it out. Something to monitor. – 11:46 PM

Warriors up 66-38 on the Pistons at the half.
Klay leads the way for Golden State with 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting in 12 minutes. Steph has also been crazy efficient: 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting in 18 min. This is the best and most cohesive the Warriors have looked in a while – 11:06 PM

Solid start for Detroit. Down five early to the Warriors. Isaiah Stewart has done some good stuff putting the ball on the floor. – 10:19 PM

#Pistons Killian Hayes is essentially shadowing Steph Curry wherever he is on the court, staying close enough to not allow a quick catch-and-release. – 10:17 PM
Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
There’s so much talk about #Pistons Hamidou Diallo’s hops, but his quickness in getting to the rim is pretty impressive too. – 10:16 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Big thing for Kuminga is going to be expanding his ability to play hard for longer stretches. Seems to get fatigued after a couple minutes on the defensive end. – 10:16 PM

#Pistons Isaiah Stewart Euro-step to start the game? Okay, then. – 10:12 PM

Steve Kerr on #Pistons Cade Cunningham: “He looks like he’s settling in. He’s shooting the ball much better. You could see early in the season that he had all that in his game: the stepbacks, crossovers, penetration, and finding people over the top of the defense with his size.” – 9:30 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Gary Payton II is back after missing the past two games with back spasms. Andre Iguodala (hip) is out. – 9:18 PM

Gary Payton II will return tonight after a two-game absence for back spasms. Andre Iguodala is out. – 9:17 PM

Steve Kerr’s reason for starting Jonathan Kuminga.
“He’s played really well, and with Draymond out, it feels like a good time to play JK with Steph, Klay, and Loon…Then when Draymond gets back, we’ll see what he looks like with Draymond and that group.” – 8:57 PM

Steve Kerr on what the Warriors have to prove:
“We’ve got to go prove that the team that we’ve been all year, is the team that’s going to be out there tonight. Defending with a lot of energy, and a lot of force. So, we’ll see.” – 8:32 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr on starting Jonathan Kuminga: “He’s a natural big wing/small four/small five. You could throw him anywhere defensively. … We really want to see what he looks like in that starting group.” – 8:21 PM

Steve Kerr says he will take a look at Jonathan Kuminga in the starting lineup. – 8:21 PM

Part reward, part situational with Draymond out, said Kerr about Kuminga’s start. A chance to play him alongside Steph and Looney. – 8:21 PM

Other starters are as expected: Steph, Klay, Wiggins and Looney – 8:21 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Caleb Martin is holding offensive players to 29% shooting in the month of January in the 4th quarter
Why is that significant?
The guys he’s guarded in that stretch have been De’Aaron Fox, Steph Curry, Chris Paul, Trae Young, Fred VanVleet, etc
He’s doing this to elite talent – 7:02 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Why does it make sense for Washington to trade for Jerami Grant?
He’s an upgrade over Kuzma, Rui, and Deni, I guess, but he’s older and more expensive than all of them and the Wizards aren’t close to ready to win seriously yet. I just don’t understand that rumor for them. – 4:06 PM
