Randolph flops after big game

Randolph flops after big game This is why Anthony Randolph is driving the Warriors crazy:

After having his best professional game two nights earlier, Randolph was virtually silent in the Warriors' loss to Oklahoma City on Monday.

The second-year forward returned from a sprained left ankle to post career highs in points 28 and assists 5 and added 13 rebounds against Orlando on Saturday. He played as aggressively as he ever has yet managed to stay under control - something the Warriors hoped indicated a breakthrough.

"If you've been around the league awhile, you can tell when a guy has something extra in him because he's focused through the practices, shoot-arounds and come game time," acting head coach Keith Smart said. "He just gave the feel that he was looking good and feeling good.

"He's back to working again. It's not that he wasn't working, but he's back to working in the areas that he's supposed to be working."

Instead, Randolph followed Saturday's performance with four points on 2-for-6 shooting and seven rebounds against the Thunder. He checked into the game for the final two minutes of the first quarter, and Oklahoma City immediately went on a 7-2 run.

There's no question that the 6-foot-11 forward has immeasurable upside, but the Warriors' coaches have been begging him to find some level of consistency. He already followed a 17-point night with a four-point effort and a 14-rebound game with two boards before backtracking again Monday.

"You just hoped that he could build on the last game," Smart said.

-- General manager Larry Riley said Don Nelson pneumonia is feeling better, and joked that he wouldn't be surprised if the coach attempts a return during the Warriors' five-game trip.
