Game No. 32, live: Warriors (9-22) at Lakers (24-5)Filed under: Commentary;
** C.J. Watson is making his bid to avoid falling out of the rotation altogether . . . although not closing out on Derek Fisher probably isn’t a good way to do it.
** The Lakers launch 3s like the ‘06-’07 Warriors used to.
** I would call this a revenge game for Fisher except for the fact that he never played well enough when he a Warrior to take umbrage at being dealt.
** They’re allowing Nate Robinson back in the dunk contest? Will he get 27 tries this time?
** Honestly, is Robinson’s inclusion needed to meet ADA requirements?
** I kid, I kid.
** Josh Powell. DJ Mbenga. Are there any other failed Warriors lurking on the Lakers’ bench? Are we sure Chris Porter isn’t over there?
** Easy floater, easy 3, then a poke-check steal: This may be the best you can expect from Belinelli on Kobe.
** If Andrew Bynum’s going to knock down 15-footers with regularity, the Western Conference is already a wrap.
** Important shot from Jackson to keep it down to 10 points, but then a horrible waste of a transition chance.
** You think the rest of the West wishes Mitch Kupchak had listened to Kobe and shipped Bynum out for Kidd?
** More time for the Turiaf-Biedrins combo, which didn’t fare well during its first-half stint.
** It’s getting about time to start checking out that Broncos-Chargers game . . .
** Too many turnovers. Way, way too many.
** I hate that get-a-guy-in-the-air-and-earn-a-cheap-foul play. It just feels like so much off-brand offense.
** It’ll be interesting to see if/when Nelson pulls the plug on this one in order to save guys for a more winnable game tomorrow night.
** Ronny Turiaf, hands of stone.
** The intent was good, but Kelenna Azubuike going into the teeth of the defense in the lane is not going to end well, typically.
** Is anyone else worried that Bob Delaney’s about to have a heart attack? Or is the color balance on my TV just off?
** Azubuike continues to make a living from that curl around the right wing to the top of the key.
** Jr Honda: In answer to No. 2 . . . ummmmmmmmmmm, no.
** Do we think that Derek Fisher blocking call is a makeup from Delaney for last season’s flopping debacle?
** I think, emotionally speaking, missing two free throws hurts more than bricking even the simplest of jumpers.
** The Lakers are jumping all over every passing lane the Warriors want to use.
** Hair or no, Vlad Radmanovic’s game is still the same.
** Idle thought: Does Kobe trash-talk Belinelli in Italian, and vice versa?
** Can we get a traveling call on Kobe Bryant this decade? Just one?
** Am I just crazy for hoping that the Warriors would have Belinelli open on Kobe?
** Great block for Brandan Wright on Bynum . . . but he didn’t get the jump ball (despite the superior leaping ability) because he allowed Bynum to fill the space under the ball. I wonder how many players work on their jump ball technique on a regular basis.
** Jamal Crawford gets shredded even by Derek Fisher? Oy vey.
** C’mon Jamal — there’s very little chance Fisher would blow that pass, I’ll admit, but at least make him make it.
** BTW, if anyone has DirecTV, where’s the HD feed?
** You never want your top 10 pick to be a garbageman, but Wright sure has the knack for finding loose change and something out of it.
** Marco Belinelli had already made believers out of Phil Jackson and Co. (hence the use of Kobe on Beli instead of on Jackson), but he’s proving the point all over again.
** The only thing that happens to Crawford more often than getting fouled on 3-point attempts is his inability to get back properly when he’s the last defender. Luke Walton thanks you, Jamal, for the easiest bucket of the night.
** Turiaf vs. Bynum: Man, Lakers practices must have been fun to watch last season.
** And then Jamal gets fouled on a made trey, again. Just unbelievable.
** Maybe if we put it in all caps, it’ll help: BOX OUT!
** Anthony Randolph is going to disappear for the remainder of the evening. And, frankly, I can’t fault that decision.

I’m surprised Nelson let AR finish the quarter, maybe this is the kind of play Nelson is looking for…….(tank?).

I wonder if I work out more if I can get arms like Buke.

Starting to look like it is going to be a long night tonight. At least you are getting good minutes for your Andris/ Turiaf +/-.
Is that a tattoo on Monte’s hand????
Belinelli’s 1D game is going to start really upsetting all of the sucker fans hopping on board the Bandwagon this week. They’re a stubborn crew.
The legitimate and unresolved turmoil went unnoticed by most folks, who only care about the price of Chardonnay at the Oracle. Stephen Jackson seems to be the same self-involved liability he always was until he worked for a few months to secure his next 5 years’ pay but no one really cares as long as they get a shot at the free pizza.
Belinelli has become a world* class flopper overnight.
Jackson is such a fricking jackazz.

CC: I don’t think I have ever met a Belli fan, and certainly not a Beli bandwagonner. I think you just need to go outside more.
I do think your comment about the pizza is funny.
I think you need to talk to more fans than whomever you share your seats with.
That’s the spirit, Geoff. You’re back on track with the Nellie agenda.
I love Ronny
Cue Fitz: We’re missing 40 points!
