We’ve finally got the JT/Smart at the five lineup. Smart, Brogdon, White, Brown and Tatum out there against a big hornets lineup of Plumlee AND Washington. – 2:00 PM
Seth Curry says hes feeling better but still limited to individual work. The #Nets
guard said he’s doing “pretty much everything but 5-on-5” but is encouraged by his progress. Steve Nash had said he’s hopeful Curry would be able to suit up by the preseason finale. – 12:50 PM

Good lord, have the Warriors found yet another diamond in the rough low in the draft? Patrick Baldwin Jr. looks like the real deal. Sweet stroke, hits the boards, plays smart. If he keeps it up, he might get some of those Otto Porter minutes, a guy who also was a Jr. – 12:22 PM
Sunday morning Kings thoughts:
Mike Brown has mentioned twice wanting to get the team to a point where they can coach themselves or correct their own mistakes. Mentioned that’s what Steve Kerr has been able to do in Golden State.
Going to be fun to follow that this season. – 12:15 PM
Today’s opening lineup includes this guy. The expectation is everyone who’s available will play. Maximum on court time will be in the 20-23 minute range.

I’ve liked what I’ve seen from Patrick Baldwin so far for the Warriors. I know he was mentioned as a potential lottery pick at one point, so the Warriors might have gotten a steal with him. – 10:17 AM
Japan thank you!!! What a great time your hospitality was unreal! Felt good to play basketball once again!🙏🏽🙏🏽 – 4:16 AM
Man, Patrick Baldwin’s ankle may have been more messed up than scouts, coaches, people like me, everyone thought last year. He’s moving much better than he did at Milwaukee. – 4:07 AM
A Japanese media member asked Steph Curry if he could do his signature “Night, Night” pose.
“Hopefully in June,” Curry said. – 4:06 AM
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Washington Wizards 104 – 95 and fell to (0-2) #NBAJapanGames

Monte Morris 11
Jordan Schakel 10
Steph Curry led the Warriors with 17 – 3:29 AM
Warriors rally to beat the Wizards 104-95, and that’s a rap on the 2022 NBA Japan Games.
Stephen Curry finished with a game-high 17 points in 17 minutes, and rookie Patrick Baldwin Jr. had 12 points in 17 minutes and went 4/5 from 3-point range.
Back to San Francisco we go. – 3:27 AM
Warriors come back for a second preseason win over the Wizards in Tokyo. Fun fourth from the back end of the training camp roster. Mac McClung and Pat Spencer zooming to the rim. Patrick Baldwin Jr. hit four total 3s. They outscored Wizards 30-10 final 12 minutes. – 3:26 AM
Isaiah Todd was like no way my former Go-Go teammate and ex-lacross player Pat Spencer is putting me on a poster – 3:24 AM
i dont know how many of you awake or watching this right now but the Warriors/Wizards broadcasters just reported there were ~1700 take fouls committed in the NBA last season alone. – 3:19 AM
Rui Hachimura has been subbed out with 3:55 remaining in the third quarter as part of Washington’s normal rotation pattern. In 26 minutes, he has 11 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks and 2 turnovers. – 2:49 AM
Quick 1st half takeaways of the Washington Wizards’ first half. #NBAJapanGames
• Rui Hachimura has been impressive again. (3 Level Scoring)
• Monte Morris PG play + running the offense has been smooth.
• Johnny Davis’s aggressiveness on the Defense side of the ball. – 2:12 AM
Wizards lead the Warriors 56-54 at halftime. This game has been pretty gross honestly, but Steph Curry has a game-high 17 points and Rui Hachimura has a team-high 11 points for Washington, so the crowd is getting their money’s worth. – 2:12 AM
Rui Hachimura had a whole off-season to work on his game. He told me “strength, mid-range, and three-pointers” was the focus. He could take a giant leap this year. #NBAJapanGames
– 1:54 AM
Wizards Corey Kispert appeared to tweak his ankle on an awkward landing after a layup attempt. He limped back to the locker room during the timeout that followed the play. – 1:34 AM
Corey Kispert tweaked something on that last sequence before he went up for a layup. Kispert is limping just a bit and is going to the Wizards’ locker room. – 1:32 AM
When Will Barton was asked to describe Monte Morris’ game this summer, he said he’s crafty in the midrange, especially with turnaround jumpers. We’ve seen that tonight. He’s got 6 of the Wizards’ first 8 pts. – 1:22 AM
Draymond, at top of the key, takes a pass from Wiggins and fires a 3. No hesitation. Swish.
If he can make opponents respect that shot at this stage of his career . . . – 1:16 AM

The Warriors and guard Ty Jerome are in talks on a camp deal to compete for a roster spot after he clears waivers Monday, sources tell me and @Shams Charania
. Warriors still finalizing plan for two-ways/empty 15th over next couple weeks. Unlikely they fill 15th for tax savings. – 12:15 AM
It’ll be a similar rotation and minute allotment for the Warriors tonight in the second preseason game, per Kerr. Starters had two first half stints in the opener, didn’t play second half. No Klay Thompson again. – 11:29 PM
Kerr said Klay Thompson hasn’t scrimmage but he’s done some contact work. “He looks good, he feels good, this is all kind of precautionary stuff.” – 11:17 PM

Daniel Gafford’s birthday (October 1) is over in Japan, but hopefully he got to celebrate well (and maybe serenaded by Johnny Davis)
On Media Day last week: “I know we’re going to be doing a lot of stuff on that day, but I’m gonna try and sneak off sooner or later [laughs].” – 12:36 PM
Congratulations to Coach Mike Thibault, Ariel Atkins, and Shakira Austin on winning Gold at the #FIBAWWC

Klay Thomspon said he didn’t scrimmage much over the summer, in part because the last time he did he tore his Achilles. He knows it’s a mental hurdle he has to get over, but hasn’t yet.
Because of that, the training staff told him last week it was unlikely he’d play in Tokyo. – 6:07 AM
Klay Thompson didn’t play pickup this summer. Called it a “mental block” he will eventually get over because of torn Achilles in summer ball. But that’s slowed his preseason ramp up. Called next week a “big week” as he revs back up for regular season.
Here he is explaining it pic.twitter.com/0ZCCmWYFO1
