what an incredible game from Wade though... he couldnt miss from 3. game of his life from 3.

Is he really a legit 3pt shooter now? not gonna lie I doubted that he could go from one of hte NBA's worst 3pt shooters to even an average one at 35 years of age... but man he's been incredible from 3. leads the league in 3pt %!

Such a disappointing game as a Bulls fan. Wasted 35 from Wade who hit 5 3s tonight. And Rose and Noah came in and punked the guys they used to play with. I know it's early but I would for sure package Rondo and Portis to see what we can get.

Dubs shoot 25% with 8 turnovers and 1-8 from three. Solid showing boys.

That said, LAL not even able to hold a double digit lead does not bode well for them. It's gonna get ugly for the Lake Show really quick when the open looks start dropping.

Walton has this team playing better than at any point last year though. He's going to be a fantastic coach in this league.

GS is soft and creamy in the middle. Can definitely be exploited in the playoffs.

Still can see them winning by like 30 this game. Won't have 7 turnovers and miss so many shots in the other quarters.

Warriors legit need to work on their D as it pertains to back-cuts and leaving the lane open with impunity though. Too many drives to the rim.

11-04-2016, 11:36 PM
Six straight layups and just 1 three attempted. That's more like it. It's nice to keep launching the wide-open threes if the D is locking up the paint, but LAL is leaving everything open, so just take the buckets until you get comfortable again.

Klay is getting open looks so this is not about touches or Durant. He's just off right now. I will say though they aren't moving the ball as well as last yr from what I've seen so far.

This is a game where Ezili and Bogut would really come through.

Problem was Bogut is fading quick and Ezeli simply can't stay on the court. When he did play last year (post injury), he wasn't serviceable enough to be given playing time. Highly overrated loss imo. We should get his replacement Damian Jones some minutes when he gets back from his peck injury though. Highly athletic 7 footer they'll have in the next month or so.

Terrible end to the quarter there. Bad TO by Curry (terrible spacing by KD/whoever else that was though) and then give up the easy 2 to end it. Ugly. Then Draymond has Curry take it out and doesn't pass it back to him. Why bother letting the best half court shooter in history take it Dray? Good call...

Klay/Curry 2-17 on the easiest looks they'll see this season didn't seem sustainable, but here we are. 11 point 4th quarter leads are no joke. It'll just take a few solid and/or lucky dagger threes or turnovers to keep the Dubs at bay.

It's causing him to under-shoot imo. Curry's game is predicated on taking ****** shots and finding a rhythm on those shots no other player is capable of. So far this year (outside of quarters like the Portland 3rd), he's playing within the offense a little too much at times. Basically he's being too nice. After a couple months they'll figure that stuff out I imagine.

Glad they took Curry out and forced this to be the last game of his epic streak. You can't make a three in 10 shots - 8 of them without a player in your vicinity? Welp, time to restart. Worst 3pt shooting game of the Splash Bro's era tonight.
Splash Bros will go down as the greatest backcourt in the NBA ever. Mark my words.

Durant took up all of GS money. They are in serious dog poo poo without a legit defensive presence in the middle.

They could have, then they got Durant. Klay would be better off the bench as the 6th man.

I wonder what Nerlens Noel would look like on the Warriors. Klay for Noel+picks/assets?

he would really make them better... Klay should be 6 man off the bench player right now because it opens things up for curry/durant much much more... They can run with klay and be fine once they put it together but much like Durant was noel fits that team perfectly and can guard inside and out and run the floor... I would give up Noel plus our Lakers first and a future sixer first and a guy like Roco if need be.

Having a team of Embiid/Simmons/Saric/Klay/Oka the sky would be the limit. Oka off the bench is a godsend it seems...He is also playing defense now... Saric has impressed.... If Simmons is what people thought he would be adding klay is the perfect fit for our team.

Knicks should always play this way. Mainly w/Rose being the facilitator and opportunistic with his attack. Porzingis should be their leading scorer, and Melo right behind him on most nights.

i dont think he's quite ready or consistent enough. but he should be able to get around 18ppg on 13 or so shots this year in a balanced attack. Knicks should have three 16ppg+ guys.

I just want NY to win games and be in the playoffs and groom KP in a winning environment the way SA did Khawi. KP can be a franchise player in 2-3 years.

Yea you're right. It'll probably be Melo, but I just hate to see games where they seemingly forget he's there. He should consistently get 10+shots at least. I think Rose played great though, that should be how he aims to play.

KP needs to have the right support system to be groomed, hopefully his teammates and coaching staff buy into him and support him to one day be the guy.

Hahaha.

Jokes aside, it's going to take the Warriors some time (which is why I knew they wouldn't win 70 games like some were projecting) to gel. Here's a play where David West gets dunked on by Nance. You can see Curry and Durant close out on the same guy, obviously not on the same page.

https://streamable.com/xow7

A team like the Spurs tends to pass the ball a lot, and it's possible that they can take advantage of Durant's not-so-great off-ball defense.

We are only six games in so obviously everything is a small sample size and everyone is overreacting. But a hard lesson that is seemingly never learned from knee-jerk fans: Nothing is guaranteed especially when the intense playoffs with intense defense and game-planning rolls around.

Lol. I especially like when u speak in absolutes and then it backfires.

My squad isn't being laughed at because not much is expected. Expectations bring the lols.

I figured bron would have humbled yall a bit. It's ok though. Warriors will be fine and win it all eventually again. Until then, you gotta take the lols with grace instead of letting them get to u ;)

I hate Melo, man. I seriously do. I hate how he STILL thinks he is the best player on the Knicks. That's frickin Porzingis.. It's sad but he needs to face reality. Melo needs to stop hurting the development of Porzingis. He's shooting 28% from three and still keeps jacking them up.

Unfortunately he hit the dagger 3 against us last night. We deserved it though we came out flat for the 2nd game in a row.

I can't wait for our shot though. We may score 130 tryna keep up with yall. But yall would then score 150 lol. I miss when we owned yall. That's in past now.
