Warriors vs. Kings player ratings

Oh, oh, well. That was fascinating! The Golden State Warriors played their poorest game of the season, but because to some late-game antics from Klay Thompson, they defeated the Sacramento Kings 102-101.

It was not a nice sight. But all 30 teams have ugly games, and the Warriors' ugly games last year were almost all losses. A win is a win no matter how ugly it is. And a win keeps the Dubs at 4-1. And a score of 4-1 still makes me pleased.

There is, without a doubt, some red pen to be used. So, let us rate the players, taking into account our expectations for each individual. As always, I grade with a "B" to represent each player's average performance.

I said it after his first game, and I'll say it again after his third game: Green's enthusiasm and conditioning are both astounding and telling. He's full of life and bounce despite missing all of training camp, which is a credit to how hard he's worked as well as how much he believes in the potential of this squad.

He set the tone in this game with two early threes — not the person you'd expect to set the tone from beyond the arc — before transitioning into a playmaker and defensive threat.

It wasn’t all pretty, but for the most part it was a sensational performance for someone who you would expect to still be rinsing off a few layers of rust.

Green's enthusiasm and conditioning are both astounding and telling, as I said after his first game, again after his second game, and again after his third game.
