Early Warriors strugglesPosted by Inside Hoops
The San Francisco Examiner (Matt Steinmetz) reports: 1) Where are the young ’uns?: Don Nelson talked all summer of using Brandan Wright and Marco Belinelli. He also talked up the talent and skill level of rookie Anthony Randolph. Through four games, Wright has played 24 minutes, Belinelli four minutes and Randolph a minute-and-a-half. That’s not good. 2) Corey Maggette’s start: It hasn’t been a good beginning to his Warriors career. He’s shooting terribly from the field, and his hamstrings are acting up. Certainly, Maggette’s field-goal percentage is going to improve, but he hasn’t proven he can score meaningful points or get to the line and convert in critical situations. 3) Point problem: DeMarcus Nelson is doing everything he can. Watson is giving you exactly what you’d expect he give you. And Marcus Williams has been buried.
