+Read full article
Jarrett Jack Golden State Warriors

Jennifer Stewart-US PRESSWIRE

In the off-season the Golden State Warriors made a great move by acquiring point guard Jarrett Jack from the New Orleans Hornets in a three-team trade that sent small forward Dorell Wright to the Philadelphia 76ers. This means there’s now a proven backup to starter Stephen Curry.

The starting experience is a benefit after the injury history of Curry and during his career has spent a majority of his time coming off the bench. So far he’s started 249 of the 532 games and averages 10.8 points per game, 4.2 assists, 2.7 rebounds, on 44.7 percent shooting, 35 percent from the three-point line and 85.3 percent from the free throw line.

He’s coming off a career year in which he averaged 15.6 points, 6.3 assists, 3.9 rebounds, on 45.6 percent shooting, 34.8 percent from three and 87.2 percent from the free throw line. In a loss against the Warriors in March he registered a triple double.

Strengths are his starting experience in case of injury, has a solid mid-range jumper, can drive to the hoop and create contact, and he is one of the stronger point guards which allows him to guard opposing shooting guards. As for his weaknesses he’s not the greatest from beyond the arc and at times can struggle defending quicker point guards.

There’s a possibility of also playing the point when Mark Jackson decides to go small and Curry at shooting guard. He will also be reunited with power forward Carl Landry and is part of an upgraded bench unit.

Expect Jack to get 16-20 minutes per game and average 8-10 points, 4-5 assists, 2-3 rebounds, on 45-48 percent shooting, 35-37 percent from three and 85-88 percent from the free throw line.

Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
