Game Preview: Warriors at Hornets - 3/21/12
  • LAST TIME OUT
    The Warriors suffered a 97-93 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night. The result on the scoreboard spoiled what was a historic evening at Oracle Arena, as the team honored Hall of Famer and Warriors legend Chris Mullin with a special Jersey Retirement ceremony. David Lee paced the Warriors with 25 points and nine rebounds in the defeat, and Richard Jefferson logged 19 points off the bench in his Oracle Arena debut as a Warrior. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. HORNETS
    Wednesday's matchup will mark the first of three meetings this season between the Warriors and Hornets. The Warriors will go into the game looking to snap their current four-game losing streak, and theyll look to do that against a New Orleans team that currently has the worst record in the Western Conference. The Warriors won two of their three games against the Hornets last season, including the most recent matchup in New Orleans.


  • ACTIVE AT THE DEADLINE
    The Warriors were one of the most active teams at the NBA's trade deadline. In addition to the Andrew 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. The Warriors have since waived T.J. Ford, who plans to take an indefinite leave of absence from basketball activities after suffering a series of neck and spine injuries during his eight-year NBA career. Golden State also purchased a 2012 second-round draft pick from the Atlanta Hawks. For a complete recap of the team's recent roster moves, click here.


  • E-LEE-TE COMPANY
    Warriors forward David Lee is averaging 19.3 points and 9.6 rebounds per game this season, and he's one of just six players to average 19-plus points and nine-plus rebounds. Joining Lee in that club are 2012 All-Stars Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and Dwight Howard, as well as Utah center Al Jefferson. Lee is on pace to join a list of just eight other Warriors to achieve those figures, and the first since Nate Thurmond in 1971-72.


  • PROTECTING THE BALL
    Nate Robinson has started the last five games at point guard for the Warriors, and during that stretch he's tallied 31 assists against five turnovers. For the season, Robinson ranks 11th in the NBA in assist to turnover ratio (2.75).
