Man, it hurt to watch that video.

So, Atlanta is playing Utah tonight... we could be losing the East lead today. Let's see if we can outscore these guys, because we certainly won't be able to stop them.

This looks a lot better:


Bosh for 31 poits, Raptors win

Bargnani with 19 points and 3 blocks :).

Landry Fields (concussion) passed the concussion protocol at practice on Friday and was a full participant.
He will need to get clearance later today, but it sounds like he's going to be ready to go. Fields could take back his starting job, which would take away from James Johnson's minutes.

I'm feeling a W tonight.

JV needs to dominate against a depleted Warriors front-court.

I'm feeling a W tonight.

JV needs to dominate against a depleted Warriors front-court.

If he can get back on defense against a team that likes to run and he doesn't let Speights get going, he could be a huge asset on the offensive end with Bogut out.

GS get the shots down -- Raps are scoring inside, they gotta keep going in...

MrSoFreshSoClea
01-02-2015, 11:50 PM
Golden State is the best pure shooting team in the NBA. They have no bigs on the inside so the Raps need to lock down the guards and shooters

Tmath
01-02-2015, 11:51 PM
Warriors are a scary team

Yup. Super confident & full of dead eye shooters.

Need to keep feeding the ball inside. Interrior defense is their only real weakness right now.

Sanyo
01-02-2015, 11:52 PM
Ross scares me when he takes those fade aways..

Sanyo

Only against the warriors you can be shooting 60% and be down by 9..

pebloemer
01-02-2015, 11:59 PM
Don't actually mind the way we are playing. Gotta be a bit smarter on defense though. But overall, they've been hitting a seemingly unsustainable percentage from outside.

MrSoFreshSoClea
01-03-2015, 12:19 AM
Why is Jonas on the bench for so damn long.

Because he can't Gaurd Speights or Lee. Their to quick for him

GS love to pass and have 16 assists so far... they move the ball very well...

Speights was hitting midrange shots with a hand in his face. I'd try again especially considering they can't guard him at all

That's true, we don't move the ball like that. However, even if we did, Amir, JJ, Val, etc. can't hits those kinds of shots.

What? This is a great game and what the nba should be all about.

There was about 5 minutes there where they played with no energy, with Hans and Pat playing roles of pylons.. That was painful, and his comment came at that time.

It improved dramatically once they left and some energy came back to the team.

It'd be nice if Lou could hit a shot.

Neither team will 1. play like this or 2. succeed like this in the playoffs.

I'm inclined to agree. Strong defensive teams seem to always succeed in slowing the pace down when they need to. As SAS frequently did to Phoenix years ago (although Phoenix came close to breaking through). But teams like Memphis and Chicago for example will never allow this pace to happen in a series.

Definitely agree.

Things is, with Bogut and Ezeli (not sure on spelling) out, we should be able to slow down the pace of the game and get high percentage looks in the half court. But there is too much in experience in this group to try it I guess. Not sure I like us going small against GS.

I think it was just a horrible game plan tonight on Caseys part.

We just don't move the ball the way they do. They have so many skilled passers and they're shooting in perfect rhythm.

How much does Draymond get in FA in summer. Someone will throw a big offer sheet at him as RFA.

Come to think of it: Leonard, Butler and Green is quite the triumverate of two way RFA's.

They are, no doubt. And not to take anything away from their IQ, but when you can shoot like that, the game is a lot easier to play. D has to be glued to you at all times.

But they certainly know what to do with their skill set.

Your answer to his poor D is to note his offensive production?

I thought his D was fine. Most of Speights points in the quarter were contested jumpers (two of them very tough). Sometimes players hit tough shots. Valanciunas was also never lagging behind on the fast break. He was always back in time to defend a half court set. I would have liked to see Casey surround Jonas with shooters and feed him the ball virtually every possession. No one on GS can defend him in the post (considering their injuries). I'm not convinced it would work due to the relative inexperience of Jonas and this team in general in executing that type of game play, but it is something they'll need to work on to slow down some of the high octane offenses in this league.

I don't think the recipe to beating the best team in the league is to play to their strengths.

Val was -14 in those 11 minutes. Didn't you see that we were getting destroyed when he was on? They "couldn't stop him" for 4 shots, and then they starting letting Amir stay open and double teamed him, and he (1) gave it to Amir who can't shoot, and (2) tried to force it and got blocked.

We scored 105 points. Our offense again wasn't the problem. It was our defense, and he wasn't helping make it better. He left Speights open so many times the guy started believing he was Jordan out there, and then actually turned into an ugly version of him.

I never know what you consider an elite team. Is GSW an elite team, even though you think they won't have much of a chance in playoffs?

Honestly, I didn't see a big talent disadvantage. Curry and Thompson hold a small edge over Lowry and Demar, in my opinion. After that, it was a bunch of guys working hard, playing above their level, as you say. Green, Speights, Holiday, Iggy at his age.. they don't have any particularly elite talent there.

In a 7-game series, where we can come up with a gameplan ahead of time instead of trying to invent something in the middle of the game, I think we'd have a pretty decent shot at it.

I didn't see him leave Speights open at all. Speights hit tough shots. If they can't stop him for 4 shots, why not keep feeding him? If the other team is doubling off a specific player because he can't shoot, why not throw in your PF who can shoot instead so they can't double off of him?

I'm not saying we should have won tonight. GS played a great game and hats off to them. But I don't understand how any of Casey's substitutions put us in a position to succeed against such an exceptional team.
