We need to win this game badly. Already 2-2 on this home stand when without a doubt we should be 4-0. Our guys are looking tired, and are playing with shaky confidence. We need a quality win against a quality team to raise some moral for the playoffs. Every game counts more than before from this point considering the Lakers just moved up to the 8th spot in the West. We seriously need to create some distance between us and the teams below us. With that being said, Dubs up!

Side note: It we're able to consistently stay at the 6th position, we could possibly face the clippers in the first round which could favor in our advantage. We seem to match up well against them, and could possibly sneak into the second round.

theyre gonna have to atleast try and run some type of an offense tonight. The team has too much offensive talent to let steph curry have the ball in his hands for 22 seconds of the shotclock every single posession. I was at the game on saturday and everyone in the stands was yelling at curry to pass the ball. I think he might be so deadset on passing that 3 pointer record that he just refuses to move the ball at all- and its killing the teams offense.

Also I read that david lee is excited for meaningful games. LMAO- how on earth are you gonna sit out a game like saturday and then come and say that. And he sat out because he bumped knees? Are you kidding me???? what is it with warriors players and milking minor little scuffles. Steph curry sitting out 2/3 of a season because he tripped over the 3 point line with nobody within 6 feet of him last yr. Andrew bogut sitting out most of this yr after the team gave him all of last yr off for an injury that was suppose to take 8-12 weeks from january of 2012.

Really? How do you know he doesn't care about winning?

the fact that he was sitting out and left his team out there to lose to the bucks in a very important game considering they lost to houston the night before. The warriors cant afford to throw this home stretch away. When david lee sat out- it was basically giving the game away at that point.

sorry, but its not like bumping knees is a serious problem. Id assume it happens all the time in the NBA, and most players dont sit out for it. it might sting for a second, but most players dont sit out.

A lot of times you hear about guys playing through injuries in the playoffs, and people talk about those players as really really wanting to win (People still talk about the jordan flu game.- which wasnt an injury per se. But also bird playing with a concussion against the pacers, rajon rondo playing with a dislocated arm a few yrs ago in the confrence finals). Its only fair to mention the reverse part of that statement as well.

I dont get how a player gets all kinds of credit for playing through a significant injury, but the player doesnt get called out for milking injuries..... or bumped knees (not even an injury)

These games are probably the most meaningful games the warriors have played in the last 3 or 4 years and david lee is sitting out because he bumped knees with someone?

for the warriors organization this is basically the confrence finals. if the players cant get up for games like these... im not sure what to tell you. (it was a bump on the knee.... I dont know if you saw the play but it didnt even look bad), your actling like i am expecting him to play through a torn acl or something.


and I blame the infection on Lees elbow on the trainers initial handling of the situation. I knew dirk had a similer injury and he sat out 1 game. (and I consider dirk very soft)

I've played basketball and I've done it many many times. That was part of my point. It happens to everyone once in a while. No question it hurts a lot and it really stings. That's really the extent of it- assuming you didnt hyper extend it, theres no ligament damage, and nothing broke, its not the type of injury thats going to get worse if you play through it. (Thats why most athletes just have the knee sprayed with ethyl chloride- and make sure they have full movement and get out there) Im not sure if being 6 10 makes it a ton worse than if you were 6 foot. I've never heard that before. Either way- you really think players actually miss games because of stuff like that... especially important games? based on how he played a couple days later..... my guess is that he could have sucked it up and went out and played against the bucks. he wasnt limping around against the knicks or anything. he was probably the best player on the floor for most of the time he was out there. Thats the whole point- I dont like players sitting out in important games if there is any way they can be out there. Youd have to assume he could have sprayed the knee and worked his way through it.

For the most part it's just more weight on them.

And I understand you wanna be safe cause if its bad we can afford to lose him for multiple games. However, if it really was just a knee to knee bump and nothing more than that he has no business missing a game. Hell I fractured my wrist at soccer practice last Wednesday and still finish the practice out (in retrospect not a smart move).

I know Stylez can be a little much at times when on the injury subject but this time he's spot on.

The Houston player's kneecap contacted the inside of Lee's knee where the ligaments attach. That's what was painful, according to Lee.

Just my observation...you seem to be of the old school that players' health is of little consequence. They're supposed to go out there and give up their future good health for the sake of today's game. I think the world has gotten beyond that.

You and I had a similar discussion about Bogut.

Yeah- considering it was just a bump of the knee with absolutely NO diagnosis, and he came back and played on it that day AND was back a couple days later playing at an all star level. I feel confident saying that David Lee's "future good health" was not in any danger whether he numbed it and came back in in 2 or 3 minutes, or if he sat out a week. Typically bruises arent the type of injuries that are long term problems.

I'm not sure if im old school, but this is an important stretch for the warriors. David Lee came out and said he looked forward to games that mattered in march, and next thing you know he is sitting out because of bumping knees? Come on.

His long term health??? are you kidding me?? He bumped knees, at very worse he had a bruise, and im not even sure it was that bad. YES bumping knees hurts when it happens, but you numb the knee go out there and play on it when its an important game. According to tweets, there were no xrays or mris done on the knee and there was no significant swelling. Dont try and act like it was soooo much worse than it was.

You dont really think david lees long term health or his "future good health" was in any danger from a minor bruise... do you?

And for lee to come out last week and state that he was excited to play meaningful games in march- then sit out and leave his team out to dry in a very important game because he bumped knees with someone??

I resent the Curry one simply because he was a franchise player in training at the time and there's no use overusing him if he's not going to be effective..

He was getting hurt every game at one point so there was obviously something wrong with him lol

not sure a player has much value if he is sitting out. You really want your star players getting you into the playoffs to do some damage. I mean.... saying "we're saving him for next year" kind of gets old when youve been out of the playoffs 17 of 18 yrs or whatever it was last season when curry was milking it.

and even if you are in favor of curry sitting out extended time because of his ankle (which he said was good enough to play on)- I mean youd have to admit that he was milking it right? Does his value to the team make a difference in whether the injury is being milked.... or do you think its ok to milk it on more valuable players?

I mean if he said he was ready to play... then after the trade he sat out the rest of the season? Thats ridiculous- either he can play on it or not right? hes collecting a pay check, if theres any way he can be out there then he should be out there.

you say you respect arguments when people support their argument- I went all the way back to mookie blaylock with examples of this team and questionable injuries- I forgot to mention the blatent lieing by our front office regarding the bogut injury (Which might be the biggest reason to question injuries from here on out)

You put weight in things that don't matter. That's why I am telling you to stop.

It's impressive how long styles can ***** about something that helped us. "Smarts a better coach because I have this weird feeling of self-entitlement because a new coach had high expectations for his first year and now I feel ripped off."

Smarts an average coach who wears his feelings too heavily on his sleeve. I'm not so sure he could be entirely liked by an entire roster so I can't see him being a long term winning coach in the league..

Not like many are though

Stylez gave up the Keith Smart banter I think?

I dont remember ever saying smart was a great coach.

I just didnt understand how people could argue that jackson was soooo much better than smart. I realize jackson has us in good position this season, but he has better depth, and a far more complete roster than smart had.

A closer comparism would be comparing smarts season as head coach to jacksons first season in terms of talent on the roster, and smart won at a higher precentage than jackson with close to the same level of talent. THAT doesnt make smart a great coach- It just shows that jackson wasnt an upgrade.

Then people defend jackson by saying the team was TANKING for half the year with jackson so it isnt fair to judge him on wins. My response- The fact that the team was tanking the same year he gaurenteed the playoffs shouldnt make you think any higher of jackson as a coach or as a man.

You know that's stupid because of no training camp and the tank job our team pulled off. Once you actually sit down and watch the footage you'd Jackson's schemes and offensive/defensive philosophy are ten times better than Keith's.

The fact you think less of Jackson because our team tanked is what is stupid. The fact you always ***** about players missing playing time is what is stupid.

Clearly mark jackson wants to tank because he elected to sit out Andrew Bogut, Stephen Curry, and David Lee at some point this season.

I really don't understand his fascination with criticizing operation tank. It was the best move for our team!

Curry is just about 100% this year, we landed Barnes (lol possible franchise changing move) and we were able to screw the Jazz. Now they're out of the playoffs. hahahalolol

Stylez are you sure you only wanted 5-10 more wins last year, risk a chronic injury to Curry and mis-out on getting Barnes, and for what? To miss the playoffs last year?

and if the Jazz had a pick they would be much better this year. They probably would've moved Jefferson and brought in Drummond or even Barnes! They'd be much better, and we'd be out of the playoffs! so **** em..
