This hasn't been the scorching start we've seen from them in years past, but how important will that be in the long run?
sorry for the delay, you'll never believe it, but the preview is up and full of happy surprise news: https://dubnationhq.com/p/surprise-iguodala-returns-to-action
OT: For those who visited Chase Center, do you know if the building with the Warriors memorabilia and warriors information and stand up warriors photosbthat you can get your picture taken with… That building. Does it have a name? Or do you know if it is open during times when there are no games? I can’t find it on the Chase Center, website.
We all know it's not just sunshine and unicorns over the long-haul road of the NBA regular season. Hitting a few potholes may cause a tire to blow out, but does not typically affect the alignment of the vehicle. While extending this tepid 'road' metaphor just a bit further, I'll say I believe the tires have been well-kicked on the Dubs (band)wagon for more than a few years, and this quality craft is ready for the long-haul.
Now bring on these pesky Magic and let's repay them for what happened in Orlando.
I'm stealing one of Sleepy's bits:
Per 36 numbers:
Player A: 13.3 pts/9.3 rbs/2.4 assists/1.8 stls/58.1% TS
Player B: 21.7 pts/6.8 rbs/1.1 assists/2.1 stls/62.6% TS
Who are they? (both are/were Dubs)
Today is the STEPH reevaluation methinks. Any word on it, yet...Nevermind, dang time difference; must be like 8 AM there....
ANDRE IS BACK TONIGHT! DANG INSPIRATIONAL! I wonder if DUBS will give me a workout...Andre is a couple of decades younger, but, what the heck....lol
Yesterday, Daniel, I posted in here on how timely your article was. Today, as the Dubs neatly slid into 6the place in the West overnight, one marvels at the parity and futility in away games of teams in the West at this point of their development/season. All made better knowing the Dubs' SURGE resulted down two starters and a depleted bench. Yep, we're going to be OK; just need to keep developing, win a couple more -magically- till we get healthier....On a side note, could it be.....here come LBJ'S loLakers?....
SOL wrote last night: Chris Paul exited the game in the 1st half with right hip soreness and did not play in the 2nd half tonight.
[And it was late, and I wasn't on top of my game.]
Sooo... those aren't the hips of a champion.
Seeding. Den-Mem-Nop-Gsw looks like a pretty good bet for the top 4 seeds. I would hope to draw Den first and let Mem-Nop slug it out like the Sharks and the Jets with all the singing and dancing. If we are the 3 or 4 seed, I think we get Dal or Sac in the first round, either of which would be a blast. I think the 2 seed (2 rounds with home court) is out of reach. So, a path to the Finals will likely include being the road team 3 times. This ain't gonna be easy.
Posting the Ty Jerome/Point Forward episode again if anyones interested. Really enjoyed it.
- Ty's background (Father = Coach, and he's a bit "hazelnut")
- College career and being #1 losing to #16 then bouncing back the next year
- Being on a tanking team first 3 years in OKC and that motivating him to play for us cause he has a winners mindset (anyone else read Build To Lose??! sounds interesting!)
- Someone in the comments mentioned: He fits the warriors gangster nerd mentality
Great article. I'm not worried, I do expect the Dubs to round into form, but I do believe that form may not net a Chip. I can't see Loon & Dray getting through 4 rounds without 12 minutes of regular minutes from Wiseman to keep them from getting worn down. Whether by his play or Kerr's restrictions, I don't believe he will be ready when we need him. I would like to think Kerr would use the regular season to determine to what extent Wiseman could help, but barring a serious injury to Dray or Loon, he just doesn't seem willing to do what it will take to find out.
In my mind, the lack of a legit 3rd big to back up Loon & Dray in the playoffs will be the reason we get bounced this year. And neither Ty Jerome or Anthony Lamb are going to solve this issue. However, if Kerr refuses to play Wiseman, there is one wild card out there for that 15th roster spot. Nemanja Bjelica. Could the Dubs do what they did with Bogut and bring Bjelica back for the end of the season and playoff run? Frankly, he is the only big out there who would really fit in with our system. We don't need an All-Star. We need 10-14 minutes a game for a big to hold down the fort while Dray and Loon catch a breath. It's a thought. And despite Ty and Lamb playing so well, I would take Beli over them in a heartbeat.
So glad that Suns, Blazers, and Clippers lost to pave the way for us but did the Lakers have to win again?
This feels like election night with our team surging up the polls! Can we go any higher before our next game?
Lakers have won 4 games in a row. JTA played in all four of those games. I think Lakers have found their good luck charm.
Good news: Wiggins and Igoudala both probable for tomorrow’s game. Per the official NBA injury report.
Bad news: GP2 slight ankle sprain, re-injured and back to the sidelines 😰.
Thanks for keeping the 4th seed warm for us. But, we're going to need it in a couple of games.
Appreciate the effort.
