If there is one team that could handle a serious injury, it’s the Warriors. Even without Andre Iguodala, this team still has tons of talent, and their shooters make it really hard for a team to defend them.
In Saturday night’s game against the Grizzlies, the Warriors showed off the healthy talent they have. Klay Thompson had 30 points, David Lee had 23 points and 11 rebounds, and Stephen Curry ended with 22. They outrebounded the Grizzlies 47-40, and that took them out of the game.
Memphis has been battling serious injuries all season long, and they took another blow when Quincy Pondexter left the game with an injury, and did not return. They Grizzlies showed some fight in the first half, but they couldn’t keep it up in the second. They started out the third with a terrible offensive performance, and they couldn’t recover.
The Warriors improved to 12-9 with a 108-82 win, and they looked dominant. This team is no longer just a good shooting team, but they can rebound and defend with the best of them in the NBA. If they can keep these guys hot when Iguodala returns, we could have the best team in the West residing in Oakland.
