Warriors midseason honor roll


Warriors midseason honor roll
Most Valuable Player Andris Biedrins --

Runner-up: Stephen Jackson

The lanky Latvian is the only Warrior to play in all 41 games this season, and he's logging a career-high 32.1 minutes a night. His All-Star caliber numbers 13.8 points, 12 rebounds are even more impressive given how often he's the only big man on the floor.

Most Improved C.J. Watson {dtriangle} Runner-up: Marco Belinelli

Here's someone giving the Warriors everything he's got while making the league minimum. Watson has been solid on both ends and his shooting percentages are excellent. His minutes are going to plunge or rather, go down to where they should be when Monta Ellis returns, but the former NBA Development League player has proven that he belongs.

Top Rookie Anthony Morrow -- Runner-up: Anthony Randolph

How many rookies get plays called for them by coach Don Nelson? Morrow is hitting 47.6 percent from three-point range - second-best in the NBA - and 46.3 percent from the field. As a bonus, he rebounds, too.

Top Defensive Player Ronny Turiaf -- Runner-up: Stephen Jackson

Granted, there aren't a whole lot of options here, but it isn't simply that Turiaf is averaging 2.08 blocks per game - third-best in the NBA - while playing only 17.8 minutes a night. It's that he brings a certain toughness to the defense. He isn't afraid to challenge shots or give hard fouls, and though his rebounding numbers are pretty dismal for a big man, the Warriors just seem more credible when he's out there, especially alongside Biedrins.

Top Sixth Man: Warriors fans Runner-up: C.J. Watson

It's a hard pick, especially when the reserves basically are the starters. Corey Maggette eventually might fill this spot, but, for now, we're giving this award to the Warriors' fans, who, once again, are sticking by a bad team. The Warriors haven't been home much this season, but they've played to an average crowd of 18,827, which ranks 10th in the league.

Top Executive: Robert Rowell Runner-up: N/A

Really, there's no other choice. For better or worse, Golden State's team president made all the defining calls this season. From Baron Davis' departure to Ellis' suspension to vice president Chris Mullin's isolation to Nelson's and Jackson's extensions to assistant GM Larry Riley's ascension, Rowell's hand is everywhere.

Biggest Wild Card: Moped Runner-up: Strained hamstrings

Runner-runner-up: Jamal Crawford

The first cost Ellis the entire first half of the season; he could make his return as early as this week. The second cost Maggette and Jackson a combined 23 games.

The third? Well, it just wouldn't be fair not to mention Crawford at the halfway point. The Warriors' leading scorer has hit his stride offensively, averaging 28 points over the last six games.

Now it's time to see how potent a Crawford-Ellis backcourt can be.

Warriors today Wizards 8-31 vs. Warriors 12-29Oracle Arena1 p.m.CSNBA/1050Monta Ellis will not be playing, but it's a big day for him nonetheless. Ellis' agent, Jeff Fried, said he is scheduled to meet with team officials today, and though neither Fried nor the Warriors are publicly going into specifics, it's likely they'll be looking to close the book on Ellis' punishment for his August moped accident. After all, Ellis has been practicing for more than a week now, and the Warriors already were taking promotional shots of him in uniform just a few days ago. ... Guards C.J. Watson turf toe and Marco Belinelli sprained ankle are not expected to be available. ... Golden State is holding a book drive at today's matinee, with volunteers collecting new and used books at various Oracle Arena entrances for use in the Read to Achieve programs.It's nothing short of a miserable season for Washington, which is starting a four-game West Coast road trip. ... Like the Warriors, the Wizards have been hit hard by injuries. Starters Gilbert Arenas knee surgery and Brendan Haywood wrist surgery haven't played all season. DeShawn Stevenson sore back and Etan Thomas torn MCL are the latest to go down. ... Their 96-89 win over the Knicks on Friday snapped a six-game losing streak.Warriors today Warriors: Halfway to ... It's been a season of uncertainty, as shown in this games-played list. A constantly changing cast of characters, caused by injuries, benchings by coach Don Nelson and roster moves has kept the lineup in flux.
