Harrison Barnes had the best game of his young career.
Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes picked a good time to step up and have the best game of his young career. After 2 bad losses, the Warriors (4-4) defeated the Hawks (3-4) 92-88 at Oracle Arena on Wednesday night.
Barnes, who had been quiet in the Warriors previous games this year, broke out and scored 19 points to go along with 13 rebounds. It was just the kind of game that Coach Mark Jackson and the rest of the Warriors world wanted to see, and if they want to have a successful season they will need Barnes solid production to continue.
The Hawks, who were shorthanded because of a flu virus, played without their star center Al Horford. The Warriors were able to exploit their lack of bigs, outrebounding the Hawks 44-29. David Lee had 18 points and 10 rebounds, doing his part on a night where Steph Curry had yet another bad shooting performance. Fortunately for the Warriors, they had a lot of role players step up. Bench players Carl Landry and Richard Jefferson each had 10 points and Jarret Jack had 9 points.

Lou Williams lead the Hawks with 18 points off the bench. He connected with three straight long balls late in the 4th quarter that trimmed the Warriors lead down to 2 points with 11 seconds left. However, unlike their last game in a 2-OT loss to Denver, the Warriors executed down the stretch, connecting on huge free throws to seal the game.
It was a big win for the Warriors as they are once again playing .500 ball. ”It’s very big because we get back to 4-4,” Warriors forward David Lee said. “And just getting off a two-game losing streak is always huge. Now we go on a road trip with some tough stops, and we’re excited to have some momentum going for sure.”
The Warriors next game is Friday, November 16th @ the Minnesota Timberwolves. Tip off is at 5:00 PM Pacific time.

MINNEAPOLIS -- It was during a second-quarter timeout, in the Golden State Warriors huddle, when coach Mark Jackson informed his guys that something needed to change. The Warriors were a step slow at both ends, not nearly aggressive enough and trailing the injury-plagued Timberwolves by 12 points. This was not the way to start a three-game road trip. Boy, did things change. The...
