"I respect Steph Curry," Lillard said Thursday. "Because what he's doing is amazing. But I'm my own man. So don't come to me and say I'm impersonating him. You telling me I'm impersonating somebody by doing well at my job is disrespectful."

I want to see Lillard go off this series.

I don't understand people saying something like Lillard is "taking his game" from someone else. But at the same time he's doing something similar to what other people have done in the past and to deny that history and his relationship to it is silly.

I think he will have a couple of big games but I also think he's gonna have a few very low scoring games. He's gonna have a lot of very good defenders with length on him. Livingston, Klay and Iggy will give him fits for extended periods.

It depends how the series goes. If we win the first two curry won't play 3 and prob come back game 4. If we split the first two they might rush him back sooner.

I think he's not 100%, but it's just a guess. Since he came back they are only playing him when they "have to". And Varejao is better at moving the ball.

Scoots
05-01-2016, 08:05 PM
Why did Lillard go back in in garbage time and score 18 points? Was it to try to win the game? No, I don't think so. It was to pump up his scoring average I suspect. That's an odd decision for a team looking to make the next round of the playoffs keeping your best player in the game in garbage time ... or are they already conceding the series and just want their numbers to look good? The Warriors still had a couple closers in the game for them in the 4th too which I find a little strange, but they at least are trying to keep Livingston and Iguodala's minutes down and don't have too many options that won't puke up 20 point leads.

It was just an odd end of a blowout from all perspectives.

I love Lillard, he's an Oakland boy and I hope for all the best for him, but it's an odd decision for him to go in when it's probably over.

It's funny, I had this conversation with tredigs about how stacked the Warriors are and he was trying to say that without Curry, they'd be lucky to make the playoffs while I was of the opinion that they wouldn't be as good as they are with but they'd still be at least middle of the pack good in the playoff picture.

I admittedly didn't watch this whole game (and my time stamp is off by I think an hour) so I'm not exactly sure when these comments took place but did it have to do with Varajao tripping Henderson? That's straight up dirty right there. Just more of the same from this team.


Double techs again for talking? Geez, anyone thinking they don't ref these players the same is silly. Henderson gets tripped hard, takes offense, gets a tech for doing less than what Draymond Greem does on a nightly basis when he only disagrees with a call and then gets thrown out again for talking to the guy that tried to hurt him. Classic Warriors game.

That's something I have disagreed with tredigs on for a while, but he might be changing his mind and coming over to this side of the argument at this point, Klay has been lights out in Curry's absence.

It's a small sample size, but we know what Klay can do when he's on fire, if he can play even close to that level on a consistent basis (all next year for example) I think this team can reach a completely different level.

On to other things right now but I don't think Henderson ran into him enough to deserve having his legs being swept up like that. I'll watch again later but it looked like AV just felt contact, flopped like he always does then swept his feet over for no reason other than to trip Henderson. Scoots says Henderson tripped AV first but it must have been on another play because I didn't see GH trip him.

because of the cap going up i think he is gonna get cashed out but the playoffs is his chance to redeem himself especially with him being healthy and curry missing. its crazy to think that he would get durant money but its possible. i mean the dubs gave stupid money to guys like troy murphy, dampier and beidrins so anything for a bad club is not out of the question.

As someone who use to be a head hunter you can always see it in their eyes, the intent. Henderson wasn't making any sort of basketball play. He came from the corner where he'd be the potential recipient of an open 3 from, I believe it was, Dames drive. To running directly at Andy V's back as he slides into the paint to pressure the attacker. Andy shouldn't have reacted as he did but it's tough to blame him when someone runs square into your back.

He can't quite get Durant money, he's at a lower max level. But he could get CRAZY money. If he's offered it and signs the Warriors probably won't match because Green took less to keep the team together and that would be a slap in the face.

They're fun to watch (the team, not those fans) but some of their shtick just rubs me the wrong way. I know how it goes as the Rockets are right there, too.

But look at what others have said/brought up in some of the other threads about Bogut and Green, it's not just me.

Fair enough. I don't think the level of vitriol toward Green and Bogut is quite even compared to what other players also do, but I've never denied that they are physical and take advantage where the refs allow.

In the last Rockets game Howard wasn't even playing basketball, he was just hammering guys left and right and nobody complained ... so it's not like the Warriors fans are all soft.

As for the Warriors not "needing" to resort to "cheap" tactics ... it works, and as long as the refs don't stop everybody using them then they are essentially not against the rules. There is a rule that you can't get FTs with a rip through or a move where the offensive player creates the contact yet Harden makes a living that way despite being good enough to score a ton without those tactics, and far from criticize him for them, I acknowledge that he has mastered taking advantage of that part of the rulebook. Why can't you do the same for the Warriors?

Harden shouldn't get those calls on the rip. Most of the time Harden drives to the hoop and there's a foul, it's a legit foul but people make it seem like he always just flops his way through. It gets annoying. Most of the time that Bogut or Green do some nasty stuff, it doesn't get called. Just too lopsided.

When Harden puts his hands out straight in front and drives and then brings his arms up into defenders hands that is a rip through and by rule should not be FTs. The officials don't call it that way and he takes advantage of it. He does sometimes get fouled sure, but not close to as much as he shoots FTs and more power to him for it.

And that's why the Warriors play him so well. They don't poke at the ball. But most of those calls are guts swiping and poking. The rip through on threes shouldn't be called as shooting fouls.

its because he holds onto the ball instead of trying to score. defenders are anticipating him actually trying to make a shot. thats why he gets contact. his intentions are mainly for that. thats very dirty it cheapens the game and makes his efficiency undeservedly inflate. but whatever, its not on him if he gets away with it. same thing with moving screens or whatever else the dubs players do that makes you go to the right. your beef should be only with the refs. alot of other players do this but it just so happens you watch the dubs play because they are an exciting team to watch. have you ever seen noah set a screen? all players push the limits. examples:

Lebron- gets to travel all over the court
CP3- push off beast
wade- carry's the ball very well
mirotic and crawford- best at intiating contact on defenders behind the arc

just a few. pretty sure i could come up with more given more time. (sounds like a good thread to start)

Now some of their fans (or in some cases, fair weather band wagoners)?.

I just want to focus on this for one sec. With winning usually come fair weather bandwagon fans. But as an outsider I don't see how that should bug you. At least not in the way that it bugs the true fans of the side. You have no clue how nice it is seeing my dubs succeed after they have struggled my entire life. And how much it pisses me off seeing fans leave the game early to beat traffic. You stay till the last whistle blows. You cheer for your team whether they walk off the court triumphantly or in defeat. I just don't see how or why that should even be an issue for anyone on the outside looking in other than just an annoyance.

Rush is nowhere near Barnes in some areas but Barnes offense has REALLY struggled this year for sure. Fes' inability to stay healthy has already cost him a bunch this year.
True but he doesn't need to be. He just needs to play very good defense and hit 3's. Fes has other issues besides health. He doesn't have enough wrinkles to his game.

Nah, he's trying to score. When you go in the lane with the ball, you're trying to get a basket. Now if you ever see him drive and then jump to the hoop and come down without being fouled/blocked/stripped then good for you. I haven't seen that, though.


but whatever, its not on him if he gets away with it.

And there's the problem. "You ignore my cheating and I'll ignore yours......Deal?"


same thing with moving screens or whatever else the dubs players do that makes you go to the right. your beef should be only with the refs. alot of other players do this but it just so happens you watch the dubs play because they are an exciting team to watch.

They are exciting, but if they start calling those screens (among other dubious actions) they won't be as exciting.


have you ever seen noah set a screen? all players push the limits. examples:

I admittedly didn't see a lot of Noah this year but I don't remember him offensive linemaning guys to get elite three point shooters open multiple times a quarter until there's a big lead.


Lebron- gets to travel all over the court
CP3- push off beast
wade- carry's the ball very well
mirotic and crawford- best at intiating contact on defenders behind the arc

I want those called, too. But if you think Wade's the only guy that pushes off or that Lebron is the only guy who regularly travels then cool. I don't see many guys tackle other dudes a la Green or play offensive lead blocker like Bogut and Green, though. It's like no one has the balls to do that but hopefully everybody starts next year so we can either eliminate it or just make the NBA a basketball/football hybrid going forward.

I admittedly didn't watch this whole game (and my time stamp is off by I think an hour) so I'm not exactly sure when these comments took place but did it have to do with Varajao tripping Henderson? That's straight up dirty right there. Just more of the same from this team.


Double techs again for talking? Geez, anyone thinking they don't ref these players the same is silly. Henderson gets tripped hard, takes offense, gets a tech for doing less than what Draymond Greem does on a nightly basis when he only disagrees with a call and then gets thrown out again for talking to the guy that tried to hurt him. Classic Warriors game.

The Blazers did lose both Games 1 and 2 to the Clippers by 20+ then came back won Game 3 and was up on Game 4 with the momentum when Paul/Blake got hurt.

That being said, all of this is irrelevant. If Curry actually returns in Game 3 like it is believed, the Blazers have exactly a 0% chance of winning the series.

I said this when we drafted him and I stand by it... Drummond should have been the selection. Barnes has high potential but I always felt at best he's Deng but more offensively gifted and not as good of a defender. He just doesn't have IT. He's passive and doesn't need or want to be the best.

I'm not talking about the screens where a guy goes around his teammate and the teammate either bumps his butt out as the defender moves past or moves before the defender moves past. I'm talking about Klay runs around Bogut and Bogut puts his hands up against the defemder and backtracks along with the defender. Green does it, too. Re-watch Game 5 last round. They did it 3 times in the first half of the first quarter and it gained 9 points. I mentioned it then and no one said a word, not even you when you re-watched, apparently. Get spotted 9 points and it's a good hole to put any team in that early. And no, I don't think it would've mattered in that game or that series but I've seen it waaaaaaaay to much and I'm not sure why it's hardly ever called.

Yep. Again, it's not the "going over or under a screen" screen, it's the "I literally can't get to him because Bogut is offensive lineman blocking me to not get the quarterback" screen.

If a defensive player runs into a screener the screener is allowed to back away LEGALLY. If the defender keeps running into them the screener is allowed to keep backing away LEGALLY. Green and Bogut grab and pull while that's happening, but if the defenders tried to go around rather than through the screener then the screener wouldn't be able to do that for teams other than the Warriors too. Even without contact the screener doesn't have to stay still by rule. I would love a clarification of that rule though.

The defender is supposed to go under the screen or fight over, not run through.

I love how you call it a bump. AV is sliding to the hoop focused on the play. Henderson runs directly at AV seeing exactly where he is and is moving too. Henderson initiated that the whole way. AV shouldn't have stiffened his leg up in an attempt to get the player that ran into his back but you're just being obtuse right now.

Not that I really wanna get involved on this subject, but I see this response too many times.

There is absolutely no way the defender can run around the screener if the screener is the one initiating the contact/playing offensive linemen. Curry/Klay have releases much too fast for the defender to be running in a wide, arcing circle around every screen. When you're running near-full speed you can't make that kind of cut anyway.

Moving screens by themselves can be legal if used properly. Here's the official NBA rule:


Illegal Screens/Picks: A screen or pick is when an offensive player gets to a legal position on the court in the path of a defender for the purpose of slowing down the defender or making him change direction. An illegal screen/pick is when the defender does not get into a legal position. When picking a stationary opponent from the backside, you must give that player a step to stop and /or change direction since he cannot see you. If the opponent is moving, you must get to your position and give him enough distance to stop and/or change direction. The speed of the player will determine the distance. You cannot just jump in front of a player at the last second.

I bolded the part where I feel GS commits a lot of illegal screens (more than other teams because of the quantity) and get away with it. Bogut/Green are usually jumping in at the last second. Bogut does it in a manner that gives the defender no opportunity to avoid contact, and then he stumbles back/grabs and acts like he's off balance just to effectively block the defender.

I admit they've perfected making it look legal, but their screens, more times than not, are of the illegal version and not simply legal moving screens.

Vee-Rex
05-02-2016, 05:40 PM
If I was a team playing against GS I'd keep forwarding the official NBA rules along with video to the league and try to get the refs to crack down on that stuff prior to the series. A split second can be the difference between a made 3-pointer and a miss, and if it happens multiple times during a game that could definitely affect the outcome.

You can't be serious. I'm watching it right now. AV is standing there, Henderson runs to him to block him out of Lillard's (I think) drive and as he reaches AV, AV moves over to meet up with the driver (Lilliard). They bump. It was neither players fault. The leg whip was dirty. The finger pointing and chest bump shoulda been techs but even Hubie said that if a player gets leg whipped by that any player in the league would have taken offense and gotten in the whipper's face.

IIRC the Warriors got the shortest turnaround for game 1 of the playoffs (late wed, first playoff game sat mid-day), so much for the benefits of being the #1 seed. I have sympathy for the schedule makers trying to keep TV happy. In the case of the Warriors first playoff game, there was a conflict for the arena for another series that meant they couldn't be on Saturday so the Warriors were moved there. I wonder about a team/facility not planning on making the first round of the playoffs and setting up a scheduling conflict though.

For that to be legal he'd have to have been set he just ran at AV did not stop and set his feet. For someone that complains we set moving screens if it's someone else your cool with it. Also AV isn't just standing there dudes in full motion sliding to the basket to follow Lilard.

Tripping is a personal foul, not a technical. As far as I can find Varejao was called for a technical for his altercation with Henderson, but I don't know for sure.

I've never said that Varejao did nothing wrong so I don't see why that makes me a homer. Why are you a hater? Have you watched Varejao? He's always flying around and banging into things. Without Henderson running into him Varejao's leg doesn't go out (which seems a relatively normal motion to me), doesn't get caught on Henderson's leg, and Henderson doesn't go down either. The only thing that made it noteworthy was Henderson losing his cool. If that doesn't happen then nothing comes of the play.

That was pretty much my read on it as well. The NBA has never really defined "soon enough" to my satisfaction, on picks, screens, blocks, or charges. Theoretically when an offensive player STARTS to pick up the ball for a move they have started their shooting motion and someone like Giannis can cover 30 feet from that moment to when the ball leaves his hand and at no point in that time can any defender move at all if they are between him and the basket if that rule is literally applied ... but it's not literally applied, which is why we never know if it's going to be called a block or a charge.

On screens the screener can move if they are visible to the defender until contact which seems stupid to me, then they can move, pretty much any direction other than directly to the basket (rule clarification to stop that advantage to the roll man on pick and rolls) and not get called.

It seems to me a poorly written and officiated rule. But I will not complain about it as long as it's officiated consistently, which based upon the fact that I see very very few screens that are not borderline already it is officiated consistently in that it's almost never called when it's not the screener rolling.

If I was a team playing against GS I'd keep forwarding the official NBA rules along with video to the league and try to get the refs to crack down on that stuff prior to the series. A split second can be the difference between a made 3-pointer and a miss, and if it happens multiple times during a game that could definitely affect the outcome.

The issue is every team is getting away with fouls and the officials will probably get annoyed fairly quickly with the habit. There is reason to think the Clippers suffer because of their history of complaining.

You can't be serious. I'm watching it right now. AV is standing there, Henderson runs to him to block him out of Lillard's (I think) drive and as he reaches AV, AV moves over to meet up with the driver (Lilliard). They bump. It was neither players fault. The leg whip was dirty. The finger pointing and chest bump shoulda been techs but even Hubie said that if a player gets leg whipped by that any player in the league would have taken offense and gotten in the whipper's face.


Warriors fans: Accept illegal screens but ***** about legal ones. :)

why? what do you get out of this? are you going for some type of troll award? yes the warriors as well as most teams dont get called for illegal screens. thats been covered at disgust but you still keep going. if you dont like it stop watching!! the team you root for gets all kinds of free points and i would rather watch a game of horse than a free throw contest. which is why i will never watch the rockets.

There was a foul......a technical on Varajao for tripping. Henderson got one for pointing and chest bumping.

IIRC the Warriors got the shortest turnaround for game 1 of the playoffs (late wed, first playoff game sat mid-day), so much for the benefits of being the #1 seed. I have sympathy for the schedule makers trying to keep TV happy. In the case of the Warriors first playoff game, there was a conflict for the arena for another series that meant they couldn't be on Saturday so the Warriors were moved there. I wonder about a team/facility not planning on making the first round of the playoffs and setting up a scheduling conflict though.

I remember that with the Warriors, but at least they had 2 full days off. But yea, not much compared to other teams

Just feels like there should be more done to prevent this kind of stuff
I know it's not an easy task, but more of an effort I guess

For that to be legal he'd have to have been set he just ran at AV did not stop and set his feet. For someone that complains we set moving screens if it's someone else your cool with it. Also AV isn't just standing there dudes in full motion sliding to the basket to follow Lilard.

Henderson hadn't set his screen yet as AV slid over to cover Lilliard before he did. It was nothing, just two guys trying to go to the same spot and they collided. The problem was that AV always flops on contact, and that led to him also throwing his foot out to trip Henderson.


It seems we are at an impasse.

The Warriors when locked in on D can take the first and second option away from an offense for stretches and that tends to make the offense look bad and disjointed. They did it a lot more last year, but they can still do it.

No need to be too cocky and sit him "because they dont need him to win". if your sitting him cuz he isnt able to play thats one thing. .... but that isnt the narrative im hearing.

sf-fanatic
05-04-2016, 06:35 AM
Some notes from the game...

1) The Warriors cant take stupid shots and/or shoot a low percentage against the Blazers. The Blazers have an explosive backcourt as well and long shots means long rebounds which fuel the fast break as seen in the first 3 quarters. The Warriors shot a higher percentage in the 4th and the Blazers had to work for their shots.

2) I think Terry Stotts coached a great game and managed his timeouts perfectly. As a Warrior fan, I dont remember anyone doing as great of a job but Popovich. Seemed like every time the Warriors were gaining momentum, he used timeouts at the perfect time and his team responded out of the timeout.

3) Does the refs not call traveling anymore ? There were multiple failed jump stops and extra steps by both teams (but more on the Blazers) that werent called and some were obvious.

4) I'm gonna say I dont think I've seen anyone with a will to win as much as Draymond Green (outside of the obvious Jordan, Kobe, Lebron). He might be borderline dirty (or a smart player that knows how much he can get away with), but hes a player that elevates a team when it really matters. Hate him or what, but you gotta respect how he worked his way into the league into a superstar

5) Kerr's rotation has me a little confused right now, but I'm sure he has a plan.

I never said it was safe. In fact I referred to it as nerve wrecking. It's a valid point about not wanting him to lose rhythm and a serious concern. However, for me if he's not fully healthy I'd rather not risk him making it worse vs rhythm. He's most likely out of sync either way. And as nerve wrecking as game two was it my book it bought him time for game 3 cause we can't beat the Spurs with him hurt.

TrueFan420

His rotation is most likely a little off with Curry out the team has to adjust. Add in that we struggled this game and he was just looking for something/anything to click and wake us up in the first half.

True but I'm will to wager he'd risk coming back sooner if the playoffs were on the line. Thankfully that shouldn't be an issue. As we should be able to close out the Blazers without him. The biggest issue will be the Spurs and if we want to get him game time before the series starts or just rest him as much as possible so he doesn't aggravate his injury.

really good news that he is going to be at practice! the statement "if he is 80% and isn't going to hurt himself" is odd. how would you not have a higher probability to hurt yourself at 80% when you have to give 100% when covering one of the blazers guards or making lateral cuts to get free especially in the playoffs.

always wondered how they decided if he was 80%? should be a more absolute measurement like "if he has a pulse hes ballin"- this I the playoffs afterall

It's the same as when a nurse asks you for your pain from 1 to 10. It's all subjective.

I think it's essentially if the player is not pain free but the doctor says his joint is stable and the pain is in a place and of a kind that is not causing the player to change their motions or increase stresses on that or other joints.

Like when they say "the doctor says I won't make it worse by playing, it just hurts".

your injury can be healed to the point where it will hold up, but you may not be in condition or have the strength in that injured area to perform at an acceptable leel to be productive in an nba game.

it is possible- but id make the argument, its really hard to know until you are out on the floor during a game

lol, please

He really shouldn't have sat out at all. Don't want the opponent to think he's soft or weak.
What the opponent thinks literally has no bearing on how the warriors will perform with or without Curry.

Peeps will always call him weak and fragile, just like the warriors will always be called a jump shooting soft team. It hasnt affected them yet, at least not in the way opponents might hope.

I disagree with your last point, you can find that out in practice / scrimmages. You don't have to go full speed and strength for the entirety of practice but you should be for parts of it or it isn't really preparing you for much from a physical standpoint.

Maybe ... if game 3 is a loss he plays game 4 ... and hopefully doesn't get hurt again. <loudly knocking on wood>

either curry is not progressing very well or kerr is very confident that curry wont show any signs of rust

Or they'd rather risk him being a little rusty and insure he's as close to 100% or 100% vs bringing him back sooner and risking he aggravates the injury.

Regardless of how game 3 goes they still have 1 game to get the rust off. If they are holding him out it's because he's not 100%. We'll see.

ummm 3 or 4 days is a little bit rusty. curry hasnt played a full game of basketball since the season ended on april 14th. hes gonna be insanely rusty considering hes gonna come into a playoff game.

also its not risking him being rusty- its basically a gaurantee he will be rusty when he comes back. the question is whether it lasts 1 half or 2 or 3 games.

its nowhre near a gaurantee that he will reactivate his injury. theres definitely a chance... but then theres a chance that he could get tripped and fall and break his wrist too. (and thats even if he sits out until preseason)

I think it's the concern for rust that will almost certainly get him in one game this round ... but it's concern for rushing him back where his risk is higher that is keeping him out of the next game. It's a tough balancing act for sure.

Meh. It would be nice to win. Certainly should try hard to win. If they lose they shouldn't quit on the season though.

Boxing is my favorite sport and it isn't close, besides, boxing cards are only a few a year, there are over 100 warriors games and a playoff series is 4-7 games.

I hate schedule conflicts but I will always choosing boxing over another event if I have too, especially when it comes to basketball and baseball because they are series and not one game. The only exception would be if the 49ers were in the super bowl, but it's unlikely a major fight card would be so early on a Sunday so I'm safe there as well.

:)

Either way, go Dubs!
