Warriors Still Employing Uptempo Offense

The Golden State Warriors have a new head coach, but it looked like the team we were used to seeing under Don Nelson. The Warriors put up 132 points in their season opening win against the Rockets.

The Breakdown
There was some concern that new coach Keith Smart would change up the system drastically, but it doesn't appear that's the case.

Also like Nelson, Smart played his starters for most of the game with David Lee, Stephen Curry, and Monta Ellis all playing at least 39 minutes. Dorrell Wright followed closely behind, playing 36 minutes. This does not bode well for the fantasy value of bench players like Reggie Williams, who only saw 17 minutes tonight.
