Golden State Warriors Notes, Quotes 2008-05-27
--The Warriors got the 14th pick -- right where they're supposed to be, based on their record -- when the Draft Lottery was held May 20.

--Don Nelson would like the NBA to consider restructuring its playoffs so the teams with the 16 best records -- regardless of conference -- get in. Had that been in place this season, the Warriors (48-34) would have been the 12-seed, facing fifth-seeded San Antonio -- a team they beat in the season series -- in a best-of-seven.

--The Warriors are the first team since the NBA expanded to a 16-team playoff format to miss the postseason after having won 48 games in the regular season.

--The Warriors established a franchise record for home attendance with a 41-game total of 804,864. The 19,631 per-game average is higher than the listed capacity at the 19,500-seat ORACLE Arena.

--Baron Davis (21.8), Monta Ellis (20.2) and Stephen Jackson (20.1) all finished with scoring averages higher than 20, the first time a Warriors trio has accomplished that feat since "Run TMC" -- Chris Mullin (25.7), Mitch Richmond (23.9) and Tim Hardaway (22.0) -- did it in 1990-91.

--QUOTE TO NOTE: "Up, up and up. You grow from these 48 wins and get better." -- Warriors point guard Baron Davis, trying to find a silver lining in a 48-34 season that ended without a playoff berth.
