The young, talented and extremely inconsistent Warriors had one major problem lead them to a 1-3 record this week: A lack of scoring. Despite having an average of 97 PPG this season, Golden State was only able to muster an average of 82 points over four games. Their lack of offense is partially due to Steph Curry being sidelined with a strained tendon in his right foot but Mark Jackson admitted that the team should be able to carry on saying, "Monta Ellis is good enough to lead us and we're good enough to win." Mr. "Hand down, man down" is known for emphasizing the importance of defense but all the D in the world doesn't mean much if you can't score. Ayo! —Ralph Warner
