Chris Wright set career-highs in points (25), rebounds (eight), and minutes (46) in the Warriors' 107-101 tanking loss to the Spurs on Thursday.
It's painful to watch a preacher like Mark Jackson lie about his team's tanking ways, as aside from the numerous, blatant examples of tanking over the past few weeks -- he didn't put his key guys into a close game late and he didn't call timeouts, either. We're not saying he shouldn't tank, but the holier than thou thing has got to go. The Warriors' loss increased their odds of keeping their top-7 pick (from Utah) by 65 percent. Klay Thompson scored 17 points with five boards and six assists, Charles Jenkins scored 16 points with seven assists and three steals, Mickell Gladness went for 14 and nine with a steal and block, Jeremy Tyler went for 16 and nine with a steal and block, and Dominic McGuire played PG for the fourth quarter and finished with 11 points, three boards, eight assists, and two steals.
