    Anderson is a black hole offensively and Gordon with a lot of stupid passes. Why isn't Lou back in and they have keyed in on Harden the FT line is keeping him alive.

    Chuckbrook doing his best to make sure OKC gives this game away, terrible shots and defense so bad Beverly has turned into an offensive power house. Stat chasing doesn't work so well in the playoffs.

    I can't see ATL keeping Millsap who has played well.

    Stat chasing?

    Do you not see what happened the second WB went to the bench? These mofos can't do shit without Russ on the floor.

    Houston has too many weapons, and OKC has one.

    Westbrook needs to trust his teammates even for just a little bit. 4/18 in the 4th quarter atm lol.

    Bullshit, Kanter is a defensive liability but great on offense, Mcbuckets was hitting all night. Both Adams and Gibson are at least good enough to keep teams honest. This was Stat chasing and shit shit selection. It isn't a secret OKC was winning when Chuckbrook wasn't taking horrible shots. Way too many people making excuses.

    He did trust them, and they gave the game back to Houston the second he went to the bench... A +12 lead evaporated in three minutes.

    And continued to evaporate with Chuckbrook in the game.

    That 4th quarter was on Donovan and WB, McBuckets was getting good looks and he didn't even bother utilizing him, they were beating us inside they should have abused that for foul calls and didn't this is the same as the regular season the bigs can do damage but he doesn't trust (Donovan) using them in crunch time.

    WB stopped trying to find his teammates and just went hero ball this is the same as the finals against the Heat he had an incredible game and became the goat in the end because of dumb mistakes.

    Seriously if Kanter was even average defensively he would be a perennial all star. Dude can put up 20 while shooting 50pct in his sleep.

    The other problem with Donovan was when Harden would come back in McBuckets would come out for Robertson he should have tried a line-up with both of them in and sit Oladipo who still hasn't found his rhythm.

    Yeah Oladipo has been trash, worth trying Roberson and Duggy together. Roberson has actually been shooting well.

    Oladipo coming off the bench would help the second unit a bit and maybe he can find his rhythm so it would be an ideal move but it doesn't look like Donovan will figure that out anytime soon.

    Getting up 18 shots in a quarter is the epitome of ball-hoggery. Dude was trying to shoot the date as his stat line.

    Warriors without Durant is wild. It doesn't make sense.

  • DarkGeneralDarkGeneral Joined: Posts: 4,381
    They have better chemistry without Durant. It doesn't matter that he's a top 3 player in the league, the Warriors were already a perennial Finals lock with gameshark 3pt shooters. Adding such a dominant and substantial player like Durant messes with the already established team chemistry. The Warriors with Durant won't be really scary until next season.
  • locoghoullocoghoul Fuck Chun Joined: Posts: 3,722
    No Warrior had 20 pts or more tonight yet they scored 110 and won by almost 30 pts with only 1 more FG... that's crazy
    I might be alone here but I really liked the 73-9 team more than the KD team at the start of the season. They moved the ball so well and the bench was really deep with Ezeli, Speights, etc

    Kenny was really reaching when he said that GS will really need KD against the Spurs, he's more of a luxury for them tbh. Couldn't help but laugh at Shaq for being royally pissed at Dwight just answering "I don't know" after only scoring six points in Game 2.

    Also Westbrook ignoring teammates in the fourth.

    i feel what you guys are saying about how they might be more flexible and dangerous without durant
    but you literally cannot turn down a player of KD's talent. chemistry be damned

    Oh I completely agree, it's just that watching NBA on TNT, Kenny Smith makes it sounds like GS won't be able to get past the Spurs without KD.

    The Raptors got the W last game, but there were a number of bad defensive breakdowns including two which led to wide open threes for the Bucks late in the fourth (fortunately they missed them both). If they don't layeth the smacketh down tonight and come out with an authoritative win, this series could easily go to 7 games.

    Mcmillan can't have a job after this season right? He's gotta be the pacer's sacrifice to try and keep Paul George, even though that's futile.

    This pacers team just has no way to play when the shots aren't falling. So under prepared. Sacrificed a heat team that could make some noise for this...

    Pacers got old schooled Lebroned today. Feel bad for them a bit.
    Failure on both ends. They will get 4-0. Their motivation is gone.

    Reminds me of my Hawks against the Cavs in the playoffs.

    Completely preventable. The Pacers lost this game more than the Cavs won.

    I can't remember the last time I saw such horrible defense. Is like they were almost assisting Lebron for open layups. I don't even see that shit on midschool pick up games. And then on the other end, PG asking for the ball while getting doubled and shooting dumb 3s. I don't think Indiana attempted a non 3 pointer in the 4th outside of that flop PG tried against 3 cavaliers... Shame cause Lance put heart on it and was trying to get the ball moving but seems like Pacers got that hero ballitis from WB

    Also Lebron put on a historical performance. People seem to not have noticed or are ignoring this fact. Biggest comeback in playoff history. Kyrie and Love were on the bench all the credit for this should go to Lebron.

    Yeah they left the lane wide open you could drive a car through it. They even messed up on the switches and looked lost on how was supposed to break off and provide help.
