Game Preview: Warriors at Rockets - 3/22/12
  • LAST TIME OUT
    A three-point brigade from the Warriors led the way in Wednesdays 101-92 win in New Orleans. Klay Thompson had career-highs of 27 points and five assists and David Lee recovered from a slow start and finished with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Brandon Rush (16 points) connected on four 3-pointers for the Warriors, who shot 14 of 29 from long distance in their ninth road win of the season. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. ROCKETS
    The Warriors have struggled against the Rockets in recent seasons, but Golden State did post a victory over Houston last month at Oracle Arena. The Warriors held the Rockets to 41 percent shooting in that contest and the team will need to bring a similar defensive mindset to win on the road. The Warriors haven't won in Houston in their last six tries, and the Rockets will look to keep that streak going as they continue to hold on to that eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.


  • CLIMBING THE ROOKIE LADDER
    Klay Thompsons career night on Wednesday marked just the second time in his professional career that hes scored more than 20 points. However, it marked the 10th-straight game hes scored in double figures. The Washington State product has climbed to the No. 4 spot on NBA.coms Rookie Ladder, and it wouldnt be surprising if he climbs a few more rungs with a few more performances similar to that of Wednesdays.


  • LIVE BY THE THREE
    Wednesdays 3-point assault marked just the third time all season that the Warriors have connected on at least 14 3-pointers. Golden State ranks second in the NBA in long distance shooting (.388), and should they keep that pace for the remainder of the season it would be the second highest mark in franchise history. As a matter of fact, the teams top four 3-point shooting percentages in franchise history have come in the last four seasons.


  • A ROOKIE FIRST
    Warriors rookie forward/center Jeremy Tyler had his first starting assignment of his career on Wednesday. He scored the teams first bucket of the game and finished with four points, four rebounds and two blocks in 16 minutes of game action. Tyler became the 14th different player to start a game for the Warriors this season, and more starts might come his way if Andris Biedrins continues to miss time with a strained right groin.
