A few observations from season opening win over OKC

Thunder center Steven Adams is questionable with back stiffness, and a determination on his availability will be made closer to tipoff.

"Overall, I thought we came across and pulled across and helped when we needed to help, kept our hand active". "I'm a lot more sure of myself and confident and just relaxed", he said. Kevin Durant was dominant as well with 27 points, 8 rebounds and six assists, but the 20 turnovers the Warriors committed as a team will be a talking point in the film room in practice.

Paul George scored 27 points for the Thunder, who struggled to find an offensive groove while missing star Russell Westbrook because of knee surgery last month. "Obviously you want to celebrate the championship and get the rings and watch the banner drop, then you've got to turn the page quickly", said Curry after scoring 32 points in a 108-100 victory. Even in a tougher conference, James is good enough to lead nearly any team to at least 15 games over.500 over the course of a full season. Curry scored 19 points in the first half, helping the Warriors seize a 57-47 half-time edge, but the Thunder opened the third quarter with a 22-9 run to seize their first lead at 69-66, German guard Dennis Schroder sinking the go-ahead 3-pointer for Oklahoma City.

There are 56 stones embedded on the side of the ring to signify the number of years the Warriors have been in the San Francisco Bay Area. Don't ask me every time you see me. Of course, that speaks to Cousins' ego and how he would rather spend his "rehab year" with a team of unselfish superstars and win as many games as possible rather than stay with Anthony Davis or start his "own team". He has been consulting a sport psychologist for almost a year in the buildup to his return, so it's little wonder Hayward focused more afterward on the almost 25 incident-free minutes he logged rather than his modest 10 points (on 4-for-12 shooting)."For sure it went through my mind", Hayward said of the devastating opening night he will never forget."It's a big part of my life". He had a great sequence when he blocked two shots on the same possession, but it appears he's third on the depth chart at this point.

Thanks for stopping by.
