    Zaza Pachulia deserves some love. He’s such an underrated screener. His picks are so tough that once you’re caught, the only thing you’re praying for at that point is that somehow Curry or Klay misses.

    He has been contributing a ton with solid picks, hustle plays, defensive boards, and the occasional post move or put back.
    He's got a much more dependable shot and FT shot than Bogut did, but is not as high an IQ player as Bogut. He's actually a better fit, imho.
    I sometimes hold it against him that he can barely jump so I might not give him as much credit as he deserves.

    Wonder if there's a way we could trade for Lou Williams. Not like we need him right now, but he'd be perfect in case Steph has another injury. We just don't have scorers out of our top 3.

    Just me thinking out loud. Some of our stronger competition have 2 guards coming off the bench that could start on a lot of NBA teams.
    Outside of Curry, Klay, and KD, and Draymond now I guess, do we have anyone who has the potential to light it up so to speak and have a 20-30pt game?
    I think McCaw might have had a 20 pt game last month. But given the minutes available, its not always possible. DWest can give you 10-15 on a good night.
    I guess I'd like to see Nick Young, Sean Livingston or Casspi have a break out game, just to show that if we needed it, its there.
    Liv seems to be trying to be a little bit more of an explosive presence off the bench but I'm not sure that's fully his game.
    It'd be great if it came from a reserve guard. Probably McCaw or Young. thoughts?

    Young is more capable i think. He seems to have settle into the offense more, and he doesn't just jack the ball up as soon as he touches it. But he is the more explosive scorer. I do like what i have seen from McCaw recently, specifically, his ability to get to the rim. He takes these angles where his defender gets caught under the rim and he has a fairly uncontested layup. His shot is not there, but his overall scoring ability is solid.

    I don't think we will see a consistent scorer off the bench like other teams, just because we are so deep. And also, unlike other teams, we have 3 starters that can go off for 30+ any given game.

    Nick Young is the only guy that could, potentially, do that. Problem is, don't expect any consistency from him, hence why he isn't starting somewhere else.
