The San Francisco Giants are currently in a tight playoff race with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West and with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Wild Card race. Because of this, every game is a must-win at this point in the 2014 season for the Giants, especially when they’re facing an inferior team that they should win against, such as the San Diego Padres.

Ever since Paul George suffered a gruesome leg injury in the USA Basketball Showcase, there have been questions as to whether or not players participating on Team USA should’ve withdrawn to preserve their health or, if they decided to keep playing on Team USA, if they would experience more fatigue this upcoming NBA season.

This must be on the mind of Golden State Warriors fans, regarding the health and fatigue level of two of the most important players on the team: Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

The Golden State Warriors made it a point this offseason to add more backcourt depth, which was one of the their weakest areas this past season. One of the moves they made was signing former Warrior and fan favorite, Brandon Rush.

Rush played his first season with the Warriors during the 2011-2012 season, and he served as their sixth man. He filled this role incredibly well, as he provided three-point shooting, explosiveness, and defense in the second unit. He was a true spark off the bench.
