Dorell Wright Scores 24 In Win Over Clippers, But Coach Keith Smart Wants Him To Do More

Dorell Wright had a team hight 24 points last night in the win over the Los Angeles Clippers, with a very efficient 9 of 12 shooting.

But Coach Smart, reports Marcus Thompson, wants Wright to do more on the offensive end besides take open jumpers. Wright seems willing:

Smart said he wants Wright to do even more, including post-up and pass out of the post. Wright said he knows it’s in his game. It’s just a matter of dusting off the cob webs, since he hasn’t used other parts of his game in so long.

WRIGHT: “I’m very comfortable. … I’m loving it. I’m glad I’m not second-guessing myself like I used to. It’s not that I don’t have it, I’ve just got to remember how to do it. It’s been a long time.”

With that said, will Dorell Wright step in and play some point guard in Stephen Curry’s one game absence? If Wright can quickly shed off those cob webs of distributing and playmaking, this Warriors team will begin looking a lot better and more talented than it was last season.


Jeremy Lin Turns Rookie Hazing Into Profit

Jeremy Lin sat down last night with fans to talk about his transition into an NBA player, many stories that include follies such as answering a phone call from Yao Ming.  As part of Asian Heritage Night, Lin participated in a Q/A session with Bob Fitzgerald about his transition into NBA life, his basketball influences, and also the role of community. But Lin also mentions a particular incidence where Charlie Bell asks him to run out to pick up some Starbucks.  Upon returning, Bell tips him a hundred dollars for his services, which later that night Lin transforms into 2100 dollars through gambling. 

YOW (not Yao)!

Here at SB Nation Bay Area, we do not promote underage gambling.  But, apparently Jeremy Lin is someone to go to for gambling tips for those that of the legal age.

Via Channel APA, here is a clip of last night's Q/A with Jeremy Lin:


Warriors Beat Clippers, But Stephen Curry Re-Injures His Ankle

Marcus Thompson of Inside Bay Area reports.

At the 6:03 mark, Gordon took Curry across a Griffin screen, then zipped back the other way. Curry stepped over Griffin’s foot, but before he could shift back the other direction, his right ankle rolled over.

He immediately went down and stayed there for a few minutes. Eventually, he got up and limped to the locker room under his own power. He did not return.

It ruined what was otherwise a pleasant night for the Golden State Warriors, who beat the Los Angeles Clippers with relative ease 109-91. Monta Ellis’s shot wasn’t falling like it was on Wednesday as he put up only 15 points, but he made up for it by facilitating the ball and handing out 11 assists. Dorrell Wright added 24 points and hit six treys, Curry added 16 points and 6 assists before his injury, David Lee compiled another double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds, and Rodney Carney compiled 12 points off the bench.

Eric Gordon led the Clippers with 19 points (but needed 17 shots) and second year rookie sensation Blake Griffin put up 14 points and 10 rebounds. The Clippers only shot 38.6% from the field to the Warriors 53%. Golden State broke things open in the third quarter, when they outscored L.A. 32-13.

But the big question is Curry, and whether he’ll be back sooner rather than later.
