Golden State Warriors

Matt Barnes identifies his 'one concern' about Warriors, how to fix it

OAKLAND – After spending much of the first half in a lethargic state, the Warriors woke up Tuesday night and slapped the Knicks off the Oracle Arena floor.

The Death Lineup – Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Durant and Thompson – turned up the defense and closed the half on a 13-0 run, taking a 61-49 lead into the locker room.

The second came in the third quarter, with Curry putting on a dribbling exhibition behind the 3-point line, rocking the Knicks to sleep and firing a pass to Looney, alone under the basket.

Instead of having savvy veterans such as David West, Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee helping Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, the Warriors have Quinn Cook, Jordan Bell and Alfonzo McKinnie trying to provide quality minutes.

A certain Warriors center dominated the news cycle Tuesday night, as DeMarcus Cousins is expected to make his Golden State debut in the near future .

Having Chandler -- who's averaging 3.8 points and 6.8 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game so far this season -- on board certainly would have been of use to Golden State, but realistically, it appears that never was an option.
