According to Mark Jackson last night's win bigger than clincher vs. Denver in Game 6 or Game 2 win in WC semis vs. Spurs? If you say so.
Of course, Speights' minute totals last four games are: 4, 8, 11 and 6 and he's averaging 11.1 minutes. Turning into an 8th/9th man.
Good matchup between OKC-Portland in Varsity Conference tonight. In JV conference, MIL (3-14) looks to close in on final playoff spot.
Last add: Draymond Green, averaging 19.1 mins, should play 24+ every game. Minutes can and should come from Speights' time, and others.
Also, GM Bob Myers said it's unlikely GSWs do any roster tinkering until Iguodala and Douglas get back in & management sees how it plays out
Leftovers: Joe Lacob said his pal Phil Hellmuth kept telling him the GSWs had time to come back. Lacob kept telling Hellmuth to shut up...
Intentional fouling always been part of basketball. Always. It's legit strategy. Lots of novices involved in NBA these days.
Anyone know if Adam Silver open to fixing embarrassing difference between Eastern & Western Conference -- & joke of who gets into playoffs?
H.Barnes a terrific mismatch weapon for GSW. Now trick is to keep him productive when not defended by guards.
Stephen Curry scored or assisted on 28 of the Warriors' last 31 points ... all over the last 8:32 of the game
Last: "If we're talking about winning a championship, then we need to bring it every single night, dispose of the teams we're supposed to."
More: "I told the team, we're going to see what we're made of these next 24 minutes... if we're talking about doing something special...
JO: "If we're going to be a good team we shouldn't have moments where we're ashamed, where we're down damn near 30 to a team that's 6-10.."
Not surprising, some incredible stuff from Jermaine O'Neal, who took over the locker room at halftime and was still revved up afterwards...
Good win! Way to make it interesting fellas
Crazy TEAM win lol
Maybe the night's most amazing stat: Not a single defensive rebound for the Raptors in the fourth quarter.
More fun with plus/minus: Draymond Green +26. Jermaine O'Neal +30. Andrew Bogut -17.
That win was huge. Not just because they were down 27. But they need to feast on the East and roadies at HOU, MEM await.
Jeemaine o'neal and Lacob share a moment afterwards. What a game.
Seriously, who thought Jermaine O'Neal would be this good at any point this season?
Oops Warriors were 4 for 18 from three before the 4th. (22.2%)
Warriors were 4 for 22 from three to start this period. They're now 12 of 29. That will do.
You can just see Curry growing in his decision making and confidence
Warriors 8 for 11 from three-point THIS QUARTER.
36-13 in the fourth so far. Whoosh.
Klay hits the Warriors' 7th 3-pointer ... OF THE QUARTER
And yes DLee has obliterated Hansbrough in this quarter.
Curry in total playoff god form.
David Lee's passing has been spectacular this quarter
And there is the flip side of the left-handed pass ...
How good would the Warriors be if they played with this kinda urgency regularly?
Mark Jackson needs to really maximize his timeouts. Warriors gotta be exhausted
Warriors are out-scoring Toronto 21-9 so far in the 4th. Lotsa good GSW and incoherent Raptors O.
Another ridiculous left-hand pass from Curry
What offense is Toronto running?
Now that left-hand pass by Curry was beautiful
Toronto was up by TWENTY-SEVEN w/9:20 left in third quarter. W's have made up 16 points in 12:17 since then.
Warriors cut it to92-81 and I think Joe Lacob was ready to get into that timeout huddle.
Some deft interior passing by GSW this quarter
Has Fitz already said first home game back from a trip is like a road game?
Kyle Lowry's face ran into Andrew Bogut's left fist. Lowry is still down on the far end of the court, and the Raptors have to take a TO.
BTW, Amir Johnson is having one of the ugliest great games that I've seen in a while. 7-8 FG, 16 pts, 8 reb in just 17 min.
One good possibility: might be Steph Curry vs. the world for a while here.
Quick hook for Klay T here.
You want a bad plus/minus? That'd be Klay Thompson, -24 in 19 minutes and moving in slow motion.
Hideous first half for GSWs, obviously, dominated by Lowry, DeRozan & Co... Pretty hard to shoot 52.8% at home & still be down 17 at half.
This would be the worst loss of the season if the Warriors don't come back
Warriors appear to have forgotten the fact that Steve Novak can do one thing and one thing only at an NBA level.
O'Neal is back on the bench again no obvious injury.
Jermaine O'Neal is back on the Warriors' bench.
Jermaine o'neal just went to GSW locker room with a trainer. Didn't see any obvious injury.
I feel like Hansbrough's free-throw form is deliberately designed to shoot off the back rim and give him easy OREB opportunities.
Mark Jackson needled Harrison Barnes pregame about Rudy Gay going off for 26 points vs. GSW last year. Gay has 9 points in 10 mins tonight.
How is Jonas Valanciunas averaging only 9.3 points & 7.7 rebounds? He picked up two fouls, or GSW might have never found a way to stop him.
Harrison Barnes' flop game needs some work. Just took a huge shot while playing post D on Rudy Gay and stood his ground, instead of falling.
TOR coach Dwayne Casey on Steph Curry: "There’s not one man, one guy in this league who is going to stop him.You might slow him down a bit."
Casey continued: "the more ways you have to figure out who to stop and where to put the finger to plug it up."
Toronto head coach Dwane Casey on defending GSW's guards: "It's a headache. The more film you watch ..."
GSW vs. TOR starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Lee, Bogut; TOR -- Lowry, DeRozan, Gay, Hansbrough, Valanciunas.Out: Iguodala, Douglas
Mark Jackson on the Kidd-Lawrence Frank split: "I do see the reports of a ‘difference in philosophies.’ If that’s true, that’s trash to me."
Obviously it's early and my presence tonight guarantees a huge David Lee night... but he's currently shooting 48.5%, lowest of his career.
In the baseball chaos, I expect Billy Beane either to accidentally trade me to Tampa Bay or sign me for 2 years, $15M.
Mark Jackson said Nemanja Nedovic tweaked an ankle prefame but is probable. Toney Douglas could be back as early as Friday.
your listeners may be one or many but they are always an audience and audiences expect experiences
Yep, a lot of people on Twitter love coaches and don't want college athletes to have anything resembling the same rights. Not a shock.
If Jim Mora (who I like) can leverage himself a new deal, more power to him. But when can the "student-athletes" do that? Never. Ever.
Mark Jackson's early coaching tenure >>>> Jason Kidd's rookie coaching season so far.
Andrew Bogut's last eight games: 9.5 points, 11.6 rebounds, 2.3 blocks, 32.0 minutes
In six career games against Toronto, Curry is averaging 27.3 points and 8.5 assists. His highest averages against any team in the league
