Warriors Beat Blazers, Morrow is Real Deal

Tonight's win over the Blazers is the best win of the season. Anthony Morrow followed his 37 point performance with 25. Jackosn and Maggette both added 20 points and 6 total Warriors reached double figures in scoring.Andris Biedrins finished one rebound short of getting his 17th double-double, scoring 17 and grabbing 9 boards. Andris had his hands full with Greg Oden, who dominated scoring 22 and pulling 10 boards. The Warriors shut down LaMarcus Aldridge, allowing him a measly 4 points. He fouled out early, collecting early offensive fouls against smaller quicker defenders.

The Warriors shooting has been off since last year minus Baron Davis (free agency) and Monte Ellis (injury). Stephen Jackson has been running the point, but shooting the three at a lower percentage. Maggette and Azubuike have aslo struggled from three. Al Harrington is virtually non-existent. Anthony Morrow has brought shooting efficientcy back to this team that hasn't seen it since Ellis. Plus, he shoots the three ball better. It will be interesting to see this team's scoring potential when Ellis comes back. In the mean time, the Warriors need to work out a deal for Harrington. Power forward of fast break point guard.
