Interesting Warriors Statistics
(originally written 11/21/14)
Entering their 11/21 game vs. Utah:
The consecutive 40-point quarters put up by the Warriors against the Lakers Sunday night? Not achieved since 1991.
Andrew Bogut has made 13 of his last 16 shots, and 19 of 25.
Stephen Curry has missed two of 47 free-throws this season.
By my own unofficial total, Curry has crashed to the floor 37 times this season, at least once in every game with a high of five.
After exceeding 20 turnovers in five of six games to open the season—including a combined 52 in consecutive games—the Warriors have averaged 14.6 in their past three.
In 10 games this season, Harrison Barnes is 54% from the floor, 48% from distance, 78% from the line and averaging 11.8 PPG. Ten games into last season, Barnes respective stats read: 50%/57%/64%, with 12.8 PPG. That was more than a little surprising.
In games of less than 25 minutes played, Andre Iguodala is shooting 73% from the floor, including 3-of-4 from beyond the arc.
Former Warrior and current Laker Jeremy Lin has played 54 minutes over two games against Golden State this year—without a single field goal.
Golden State is first in the NBA in opposing FG% (.414) and third in opposing 3P% (.295; Houston certainly helped with that). Coincidentally (or not), they rank first in the NBA in FG% (.500) and third in 3P% (.398). Only Dallas averages more than their 108.6 PPG.
Marreese Speights has sank 13 consecutive free throws.
Backup centers Speights and Festus Ezeli are shooting a combined 64% from the floor (48 of 75), although that percentage drops to 12% when outside of 10 feet.
