Golden State Warriors Getting Inside 2009-01-30

Golden State Warriors Getting Inside 2009-01-30
With selections for the All-Star Game sideshows coming in the next week, Warriors rookie Anthony Morrow understands that now's the time to aim high and take his best shot.

Morrow, who made the Golden State roster in training camp despite not having been drafted out of Georgia Tech, has taken advantage of the club's many injuries over the first 46 games of the season.

The shooting guard began the week as a likely choice for the three-point Shootout and a possible selection to the Rookie Challenge. After hitting three-pointers and totaling 17 points in Sunday's home win over the Clippers, Morrow solidified his league lead in three-point percentage (50.6) while also bumping his scoring average to 9.1.

If only the balloting could have taken place at that point.

Unfortunately, the Warriors' seven-game homestand ended Sunday, meaning Morrow will have to make his final statement to those selecting the All-Star Weekend participants on the road. The Warriors opened a four-day, three-game trip Wednesday in Dallas.

And if you know the Warriors, you're well aware that going on the road rarely produces good news.

Not surprisingly, Morrow's campaign hit an immediate speed bump in the first of the three games. He missed both his three-point attempts and finished with just six points in Wednesday's blowout loss at Dallas

The goose egg from beyond the arc ended a six-game streak of having made at least one.

He still leads the league in three-point percentage, but that's not where he likely needs help. He entered Wednesday ranked 12th in scoring average among rookies, with only nine guys to be selected to the team.

Scoring only six points brought his average down a notch.

Now the trip only gets tougher. The Warriors visit the Hornets on Friday, then move on to Houston on Saturday.

Suffice it to say he's going to have to do better in those games than he did Wednesday.

MAVERICKS 117, WARRIORS 93: There's a misconception -- and it's easy to understand where it comes from -- that the Warriors own the Mavericks. Yes, they did shock the top-seeded club in the 2007 playoffs, winning once in Dallas. But that was a rarity. Way more often than not, the Warriors have gotten clubbed in "Big D" in recent years, and Wednesday's first visit of the season was no different. In falling at Dallas for the fourth time in the last five visits -- including the playoff series -- the Warriors weren't even competitive for a half, watching the Mavericks run off 24 of 29 points in one stretch en route to 22-point halftime lead and one of their easiest wins of the season.
