Thompson returns with 39, Warriors bounce back, beat Nuggets

Thompson returns with 39, Warriors bounce back, beat Nuggets Klay Thompson returned from a two-game absence to score 39 points with nine 3-pointers, and the Golden State Warriors bounced back from their worst loss of the season to beat the Denver Nuggets 122-105 in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Conference. Thompson sat out that embarrassing 128-95 home defeat Tuesday to the Celtics, the worst at Oracle Arena under fifth-year coach Steve Kerr, dealing with soreness in his right knee. He finished 9 of 11 from deep.

The Warriors won partly because they coached themselves . Warriors assistant Mike Brown seemed to be the most likely candidate since he had served as an interim coach and Kerr said Green will play on Wednesday in Portland. The Warriors will also face a much steeper challenge against

"People will still go to games , but it will be more corporate. So many of the best fans are going to be priced Golden State owner Joe Lacob, for example, appears lightyears ahead of hapless 49ers CEO Jed To be fair, many Warriors fans have already found themselves priced out of Oracle since the

High achievers have to challenge themselves some way to keep themselves interested. And the Golden State Warriors - with three NBA championships in four years and a roster of record-setting, history-making All-Stars - seem to be spurring excitement by making things as hard on themselves as possible.

That's right. The Warriors appear to be subconsciously making games more challenging, to give themselves a little something "extra" to conquer.

When asked after practice today why the Warriors play better on the road than at home, forward Draymond Green said:

Sometimes, at home, we can just kind of relax and think, 'oh, we're at home … we're gonna win it.' On the road … we've been able to play with the type of intensity that it takes and the type of focus that it takes.

Warriors bring back the joy in convincing win over Nuggets

Warriors bring back the joy in convincing win over Nuggets On Wednesday morning, while reviewing their most lopsided home loss of the Steve Kerr era, the Warriors paused the video for a heated discussion. One by one, players stressed the need to regain a sense of purpose. Golden State knew that if it didn’t rediscover its inspiration soon, it was at risk of letting a rough regular-season stretch bleed into the playoffs. Unlike last year, when they coasted until the stakes heightened in mid-April, the Warriors are keenly aware that suddenly exerting all their powers in the postseason might not be so easy this time.

Reasons Why People Play Mind Games . I hear from many of you about how confusing and It’s very important for the person who’s playing mind games with you to know that you know the game is being played . They say to themselves , If I can get a girl or guy to fall for me, then I must be pretty cool.

Mind game 8: He is a player in the game of intimacy. Like I said, every girl on this planet should no be played with but treated like a princess. We are not men’s dolls, so they cannot play mind games with us, control us in relationships the way they like to or even try to make us insecure about ourselves.

Thus, the Warriors know, intellectually, that what they are doing won't fly. They know they are coasting at home by, in effect, playing mind games with themselves to see how little they can prepare, and how poorly they can execute, but still get away with wins.

It's like when I was in high school and would "challenge" myself by seeing how little I could study for a test and still get an A, or how little I could practice violin and still get a high chair seating. Eventually, though, no one can out-clever reality because lack of preparation catches up with everyone. If the Warriors aren't careful, they'll find themselves in the playoffs, lost and flailing, just like I was when I and my string quartet members decided to do a performance without even one practice.

Curry: Problems for last year’s Warriors were ‘way worse’

Curry: Problems for last year’s Warriors were ‘way worse’ The Golden State Warriors suffered their most shocking defeat of the season on Sunday night, but Stephen Curry insists the team is in a very familiar place.

During Warrior games at Oracle Arena, the disabled drop-off and pick-up area is located on the north and south ramps leading up to the Plaza, which is the area between the Coliseum Will Call is located at the Oracle Arena box office below the East Main Entrance. Will Call opens two hours prior to tipoff.

The Warriors finally don't appear to be invincible -- and that feels weird. For three quarters, the Warriors and Celtics traded buckets. To that point, the game had all the makings of “We might have caught them on a good scheduling night, but I thought our guys played with good poise and purpose.”

So, to get on the right track and avoid similar embarrassment, the Warriors should start with small goals, like winning two games in a row, with one of those games being on their home floor.
