In case you missed it, we had to bring you this.
Marreese Speights got more minutes because Andrew Bogut and Jermaine O’Neal out — that is how you take advantage.
He had 17 second quarter points on his way to 32 points for the game on 12-of-15 shooting. What was amazing was how he was doing it — 7-of-8 in the paint, 4-of-5 from midrange (including some stepback jumpers I didn’t even know he had) and 1-of-2 from three. He looked like KD out there, just a little thicker.
The Warriors crowd ate it up and serenaded him with “M-V-P” chants.
