Golden State Warriors Game 3 Report Card vs. Denver Nuggets

5 of 9

Andrew Bogut – B+

Whoever booed Joe Lacob at Chris Mullin’s jersey retirement ceremony last year should apologize, because Andrew Bogut has been the only thing keeping the Warriors alive defensively all series.

The big man can’t shoot, has trouble scoring and generally fails to put up gaudy rebound numbers, but his very presence around the restricted area puts the fear of God in Denver’s guards –Ty Lawson has hesitated to attack the basket as frequently with Bogut on the floor, much less when he’s in the lane.

Also, you have to love anybody who can get under JaVale McGee’s skin.
