A lot of them are super tight. KD, where do you find logo pages for the thumbnails here? I tried to follow the link in them but it just goes to a direct-tv page.

Pretty excited for tonight's game. Might be the end of the streak for the Dubs if they don't show up in top form. Third game in 4 nights without Barnes in a matchup that has killer wings has trouble written on it.

Liked this tweet though:

Super hyped for the Indiana game, got a feeling this could be an instant classic.

Barnes out, Barbosa out (Bogut out?) and the Ellis v Warriors aspect on top of all the Indiana wings feasting against Rush... on top of having two of the hottest hands in the league on the floor at the same time.

Cannot wait.

When the Warriors go up 15 or more points at any point in a game they haven't lost in like 3 years. Something like 95-0.

Actually I'm not sure on the total going back three years but last season they went 59-0 (including playoff games) in such situations (up 15 at some point). And this year I think they've gone up 15 in at least 18 of the games.

Indianas transition defense has been atrocious. And they put so much defensive focus on Steph, I mean it's as if they've looked at his scoring numbers but forgot how great a passer he is.

They need to absolutely destroy the Dubs second unit to even have a chance now.

I thought this would be some back and forth instant classic that people would talk about for the rest of the season.

They're turning into another notch. Warriors out here just crossing teams off their list.

Gander13SM
12-08-2015, 08:55 PM
The way I see it there are two ways to stop this Warriors team;

1. Some sort of Cleveland small ball with LeBron playing 4/5? I think Kyrie/LBJ are the only duo that could run a small ball offense like Curry/Green.

2. Force them to hire Mark Jackson back.

I have never seen a team get 60 points dropped on the in a half and still be on pace to blow the other team out by nearly 40 points.

This is INSANE. And Curry hasn't even gotten hot yet, and neither has Green.

I think Luke should let Klay break the record in the 4th if he doesn't do it in the third. At least give him a few minutes. They don't play again until Friday and I think it'd be amazing for his morale and ultimately help the team.

So depending on how Bogut's spasms are and what happens with Klays ankle, the Warriors could be without; Their head coach, starting small forward, starting shooting guard, starting center and back up guard.

Boston up next... they going to sneak a win from a broken down Dubs?

Westbrook played the role of low volume distributor tonight and the Thunder are up 35 going into 4th quarter v Memphis. 31/10/6 on 14 shots + 6/6 at the stripe for KD, 16 assists and 7 total shots from Westbrook. Amazing.

Most likely because the Warriors bench lost the lead. 12 TO's through three quarters when they left the lead up 28 and on pace to score 148 points (on the third game in four nights in Indiana versus a top 10 offense/defense) could only be *****ed about by the likes of you lol.

Warriors had fewer turnovers from their starters than they average and they had fewer overall to the Pacers. It was the bench that lost the lead ... but the bench is getting challenged more with players missing.

'Twas a joke. It means that Klay's sprained ankle does not show structural damage on an x-ray. They are going to re-evaluate after a day off of it but before the Boston game.

Just depends if his ankle is still weak or not. If it is, you sit him. Only an idiot would play a star on a weak ankle over a rested backup, and the Warriors are not idiots. Ankle rolls are exponentially more likely on an already weakened ankle than at full strength. They're all super solid on mpg, there's absolutely no reason to think they'd be risking any other players health if they went down another man. They may lose sure (still doubt it), but that's far less important than Klay's health.

you are aware that klay wouldnt be the first player in history to play through an ankle thats less than 100%. Heck Kevin Mchale played through the entire post season with a broken foot one year. (I think that might be a little crazy)- but playing through a minor tweak after 2-3 days rest.... im sure its been done plenty of times.

Because it's the regular season and health is massively more important than depth for a single game? These guys play through soreness/tweaks every single night. I'm saying if it's legitimately still feeling weak, you do NOT play in that situation. As a fan of the Warriors, you'd think you would respect how debilitating recurring ankle injuries can be.

Lol you keep mentioning the Bulls as the team that scares you. The Bulls aren't good. They're a .500 team who are fortunate to be 11-7. Noah is DONE, Rose is DONE. The Pacers are the 2nd best team in the East. Maybe Miami. The Cavs are missing their starting backcourt, they're still absolutely the best team in the East. Spurs should still worry you. Kawhi is the best wing defender in the game and if they get LMA to completely buy in, they're going to smash teams (well they already are smashing teams, but worse). Their D is incredible and their win differential is better than the Warriors was last year (SRS is identical). If the Warriors are not in top form the Spurs will defeat them in the playoffs.

Very true. If they were to become too focused on records and streaks they may burn themselves out.

Manchester United infamously "took a dive" and lost a game on purpose because they were on such a hot streak it's all people were talking about, including the players.

Their manager told them to lose the game and then start the streak fresh. They were becoming lost in the moment and peaking too early in the season.

Same thing could apply here potentially. I expect when the streak ends we might see guys taking turns resting like we did last season.

Warriors managed their players minutes so well last year, it was a big key in that chip.

Its not that he didn't progress. He improved his shooting, but also was trying to adjust to a new role for a coach that didn't really know what he was doing. With Skiles here I'm sure he'll become a clear top 5 SG.

In the weeks leading up the the ASG break last year Kerr kept telling the media and the players how tired they were over and over and over and they started playing more and more tired. He also was saying that they could use the break to recharge for a run to the playoffs. It was all a very Phil Jackson kind of move and it worked. This year I don't think they are feeling any pressure ... they are the current title holders and have not yet lost despite losing more and more personnel ... also Curry.
