Foyle starting to assert his offensive potential
OAKLAND -- One game after posing for Amare Stoudemire's latest poster, Warriors center Adonal Foyle registered one of his best performances of the season.
Foyle had a season-high 15 points to go with 16 rebounds and three blocks before fouling out in the second overtime. Granted, injuries have the Spurs down to reserves Nazr Mohammed, Tony Massenberg and Cal-product Sean Marks. But it's the latest in a stretch of productive outings for Foyle.
Foyle is averaging 11 points, 13.7 rebounds and three blocks over his last three games. His recent scoring is especially noteworthy considering he was averaging 4.2 points per game coming into Sunday. Amid talks that all the Warriors need is a low-post scorer, Foyle has shown he can produce some points on occasion.
Most of his points have come from finishes and putbacks. But he has improved his turn-around hook shot, which he used to open the scoring Sunday.
The acquisition of point guard Baron Davis has made an obvious impact on the court. But the Warriors are feeling Davis' impact at the gate. The Warriors have averaged 17,349 fans in nine home dates with Davis. Before his arrival, the Warriors were averaging 15,882 fans per game.
