George good in 1st big minutes

George good in 1st big minutes Devean George on Monday played his first extended minutes since joining the Warriors in an offseason trade for Marco Belinelli , and the 11th-year forward made a pitch for more playing time.

George, coming off arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, has been healthy since the start of the month, but had played only six minutes. In the 117-101 loss to Philadelphia on Monday, George scored nine points on 3-for-4 three-point shooting in 17 1/2 minutes.

"I think I can give somebody a break or a breather or something, but that's not my decision," George said. "I just have to be ready when I'm called and help out when I can. If I'm not in the game, I have to help the young guys with what I see."

What the youthful Warriors should see in George is a man who has three championships and works out vigorously before games even though he might not play. What they should see is how to last in the league for a decade.

"When a guy has three rings, he understands how to be a pro," Warriors acting head coach Keith Smart said. "He understands to be ready no matter what, and I hope the young guys saw that. He hasn't played since last year, got a chance to get on the floor and was ready to play.

"That's how you become good."

-- The Warriors are hosting their annual food drive during Wednesday's game against San Antonio and Friday's game against Washington. Fans can bring nonperishable items or make monetary donation to the Alameda County Community Food Bank. Those who donate five cans of food or make a $5 donation will have an opportunity to win a food voucher from Levy Restaurants.
