OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - When the Golden State Warriors began madly celebrating a stunning, last-second win against defending NBA champion Miami on the Heat's home court this week, Jarrett Jack quickly offered a message to his teammates.
Time to move on. Next game. Act like you've done this before.
Thanks to Jack, that catchy "We Believe" mantra that gained mass popularity during the team's unlikely run to the second round of the 2007 playoffs has suddenly turned into "We Belong."
Nobody will argue the Warriors belong, at least for the moment.
Golden State (15-7) is off to its best start since 1991-92 and the team sits in second place in the Pacific Division behind the Los Angeles Clippers going into Friday night's game at Orlando.
Everybody involved guards against getting too excited at this early stage.
