Most frustrating loss of the season Swear on everything if I ever see that chipmunk looking, ugly *** mother****er he's goin missing.
lol cousins right?
I don't think this was quite as frustrating as the the loss Klay Thompson handed us against the Nuggets, but it was bad. Can we play a ****ing center? My god. Clearly Lee and Landry won't be able to handle Cousins.

Thornton is a chipmunk though didn't notice that
I missed this game but saw the box score and highlights. Remember I said there is nights where Jackson needs to go small and nights where we gotta play big. This was a night to play big and we didn't. Barnes 16 minutes??? C'mon man.. Green 18 minutes? Jack 32 minutes? These nights worry man. It's Jackson (who has been proving me wrong about him) that has to get this in game adjustment down. This is a team that should not beat us.
THE REAL FRANCHISE WARRIORS!
They played probably the best game of the season ... they were perfect from any spot.... i don't think the Warriors played bad, yes the "D" cud have been better however when the opposition goes 11 of 18 of 3 pointers (guess) there is little u can do .... now comes the important home stand .. Go Warriors .. and yes we miss Bogut i told ya it will be hard for the Dubs to win on a consistent basis without him, hope we see him before the end of the week !!
On offense, there was no movement away from the ball, curry was basically settling for 26 foot contested shots with 14 on the shotclock... and then giving lay ups on the other end. Again- they are leaving 3 point shooters to tripple people in the paint. The kings were shooting 60% from behind the arc because they were being left alone all night. Let the guy hit the 2!!!! 2 is less than 3 and a defended 2 is less likely to go in than a wide open 3.
maybe this loss will provide some motivation for bogut to come back... then again- I dont know what motivates that guy to come out and play considering how many games he has missed over the last 3 or 4 yrs.
After this loss- I dont even know if I can count on a win this saturday when the lakers come to town. They need to take care of the easy games, and the kings are not a tuff team. I know it was a back end of a back to back... and fitz made a huge deal about that. The fact is the warriors are 5-1 on the tail end of back to backs.... thats .833, they are actually more likely to win on the tail end of a back to back than they are any random game in the schedule.
There is a lot you can do.... the kings have lost 17 games this year- just do what every other team in the league does who gets a win against them... they arent the 95-96 bulls, they are beatable by most jr high girls teams who take a little pride in their defense.
I didn't read through the thread, I've been busy as shlt all week
Appears to me that our guys don't yet have all the aspects of an elite team. Sure, they can win...even against elite opponents...when they psych themselves up but they haven't learned yet how to come out with intensity and maintain it throughout the game when playing against a lesser team. Barely squeaking by sub-.500 teams tells me that.

I knew it was going to happen. This was a true test for the new Warriors aka the Road warriors. One of the most depressing games of the season. How could they do this? They didn't get their payback against Orlando. And they dropped 2 against Sacramento. The fools decided not to show up. They simply cannot play down to their opponents. I am very disappointed in them. The Warriors have proved that they can stay with the best, but likewise they have proved that the worst can beat them as well. This was an unacceptable performance. They make Aaron Brooks look like a super star. Marcus Thornton couldn't miss.
And Demarcus cousins who has been shooting sup 40 percent, just has his way every time against us. The Warriors mindset should be to beat the good opponents, but blow out the bad opponents by at least 15 every game. Obviously, they aren't motivated to beat the bad teams. It's Orlando twice and it's Sac twice. Those teams who are 2 of the worst 3 point shooting teams shoot 3's like it's the 3 point contest against the Warriors, except they go on fire. It's a crying shame. It really is. It wasn't just a matter of the other team getting hot. When they both have back to back games against you where they shoot lights out from 3's then something is going on, there is not fluke. Whatever reason they couldn't guard Orlando from distance must have coincided with Sac. This was just bad folks. Be very disappointed in the Warriors for this performance.
