Game 16, Live: Pacers (6-8) at Warriors (5-10)Filed under: Commentary;
** FINAL: Warriors 126, Pacers 107. INSTA-STAT OF THE NIGHT: Golden State notches 25 assists on 45 buckets — team-high six each for Corey Maggette and C.J. Watson. That’s the sixth time in seven non-Stephen Jackson games that the Warriors have reached 20 assists.
** Free advice for Jim O’Brien: If you’re going to take 19 3-pointers in a game, you should probably make more than 3. Jus’ sayin’.
** Chris Hunter with the standing O on his departure.
** MDJ is just having a wretched second half. Even when he poke-checks the ball away from Anthony Morrow, it bounces directly to Hunter for the gimmie.
** In the (sort of) words of Dennis Green: Chris Hunter is who we thought Richard Hendrix was.
** And then Ellis gets hit with the charging call, fouling out with 6:02 to go. Can Stephen Curry, who hasn’t played since Wednesday (or so it seems, he’s been glued to the bench so long) close it out?
** Looks like Ellis stays on Granger, but with a quick double from Hunter. Dahntay Jones forces up an ugly miss from 17 feet on the pass around.
** Fifth foul on Monta, with 6:57 remaining. Will Smart keep him on Granger, or switch him off?
** Hard to imagine the Pacers were once up 83-78 in this game. That’s a 25-6 run — nine of the points from Ellis — for the Warriors.
** Chris Hunter blocks Earl Watson at one end, then dunks (and hits the ensuing FT) off C.J. Watson’s hustle offensive rebound at the other end. I have to admit, I didn’t think the Warriors could win this once Anthony Randolph went out with the sprained ankle, but I was wrong.
** And just like that, with seven points in the first 63 seconds of the quarter, Ellis sets a new career high with 43. Brandon who?
** C.J. Watson is flat-out outplaying Stephen Curry right now. That doesn’t bode well for the rookie.
** The Pacers’ tendency to let down in the third quarter outweighed the Warriors’ typical lack of post-halftime success. Warriors put up 34 points and hold Indiana to 8-for-25 shooting (32.0 percent) in the period.
** Randolph suffers what looks like a sprained left ankle, limps off the floor with a hand on the shoulder of Ronny Turiaf.
** Stephen Curry gets pulled at the 3-minute mark of the quarter (as does Mikki Moore, in favor of Randolph). Other than the Madison Square Garden Freeze-Out (2:50), this might be the fewest minutes Curry plays in his NBA career.
** Make that five with the tap-in bucket.
** It’s easier to forgive wild drives to the hoop (and the attendant misses at the cup) when you can scoop up offensive rebounds seemingly at will, like Jeff Foster (who now has four).
** Usually, it’s Monta Ellis who’s doing the posterizing: Dahanty Jones impales Monta with a right knee to the sternum, then leverages off that for the right-handed Statue of Liberty jam. Ouch.
** Picking up after a first half spent in Sect. 122 . . . Interesting view from there; much easier to tell from that up-close-and-personal exactly how empty Oracle is tonight.

The Warriors seem to have more success selecting players from the D League than they do with some of their draft picks or free agency. They would be wise to seek out another high performing player or two from the D League (should they ever free up roster space).
Definitely Azubuike and CJ Watson are equal to a mid to late first round picks in terms of talent. The jury is still out on Chris Hunter, but he seems promising so far.
My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
