Difficult season for Warriors makes things only more entertaining

Difficult season for Warriors makes things only more entertaining

The first half of the Warriorsa€™ Very Weird Season is over. You might call it troubling. I prefer to call it entertaining.

And the festivities should ramp up even more soon. According to reports Tuesday, DeMarcus Cousins might make his Warriors debutA a little later this month, when the Warriors head to Los Angeles for games against the Clippers and the Lakers, on Jan. 18 and 21.

Thata€™s just a target date, because you can never predict what 270 pounds on a repaired Achilles tendon will do. But it is one more tantalizing chapter in what has been a very interesting Warriors season.

a€œWe talked to our team this year about quadrants,a€ Steve Kerr said. a€œFour 20-game quadrants to help organize the season. a€¦ These coming 20 games will be about improving our consistency. And it will be about incorporating DeMarcus at some point.a€

The first two quadrants have been unexpectedly dramatic. Even before we get the appearance of Boogie Cousins in a Warriors uniform, the season has been full of surprises.

With their 122-95 romp over the KnicksA on Tuesday night at Oracle, the Warriors improved to 27-14, and remain one game behind Denver for first place in the Western Conference.

Though thata€™s a very good record (for reference, please rewind to the 2000-01 season when the team won 17 total games), it seems to trouble the victory-drunk fans who have seen their team win an average of 35 games in the first half for each of the past four seasons. Who have not seen their team lose three in a row at home with Stephen Curry in uniform (a skid that ended with Tuesdaya€™s win). Who had not seen their team lose four in a row under Kerr, as they did in November.
