  • LAST TIME OUT
    It went down to the final seconds, but the Warriors fell just short in a 105-103 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday at Oracle Arena. Kevin Garnett sunk a game-winning shot for Boston with 5.1 seconds left, spoiling an otherwise gutsy effort for the Warriors. Klay Thompson poured in a career-high 26 points, Nate Robinson finished with 20 points and 11 assists and David Lee added 20 points in the defeat. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. BUCKS
    The lone Warriors-Bucks matchup of the season is filled with storylines, the most glaring being the fact that the teams completed a five-player swap earlier this week. With all details of the trade now complete, Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh are both expected to be in uniform for Milwaukee. With or without Ellis and Udoh, the Bucks are a hot team. They've won four-straight and currently hold down the eighth and final playoff spot. The Warriors, meanwhile, had their three-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday and will look to keep up their strong play despite being undermanned.


  • ACTIVE AT THE DEADLINE
    The Warriors were one of the most active team's at the NBA's trade deadline. In addition to the Bogut deal with Milwaukee, the Warriors acquired Richard Jefferson, T.J. Ford and a first round pick from the Spurs in exchange for Stephen Jackson, who came to the Warriors in the deal with Milwaukee. Golden State also purchased a 2012 second-round draft pick from the Atlanta Hawks.


  • STEPPING RIGHT IN
    With Monta Ellis now playing for the Bucks, Warriors rookie Klay Thompson has moved into the starting two-guard role. He struggled with his shot on Tuesday, but found his stroke on Wednesday, shooting 9-for-16 from the floor and 3-for-5 on 3-pointers. Thompson now ranks ninth in the NBA in 3-point percentage (.448), and first among rookies.


  • NATE THE GREAT
    If the Warriors are to remain in the conversation regarding the Western Conference Playoffs, Nate Robinson will need to keep up his strong play. He's filled in admirably for the injured Stephen Curry, averaging 18.5 points, 7.0 assists and 3.00 steals over his last two starts. The first-year Warrior has provided great energy off the bench this season, but now he's needed to keep the motor going while logging heavy minutes.
