Steph has 74 3PM in November. His record for 3s in a month is 96 (April 2021)... in second is Harden's 82 (November 2019)... 9+ threes for Steph tonight, please.

Perhaps this is a silly question. What's the point of paying for League Pass when so many of the Warrior's games are blacked out?

I'm okay with paying to watch content. It's paying and not being able to watch that has me baffled.

I've been thinking about getting league pass, but hesitant for that reason. I'm effectively outside the country, for TV market purposes, and I usually watch the National TV games at bars. Because I ain't paying for tv lol.

Especially with national TV games blacked out, it's pretty bad. You can use a VPN to circumvent the geofencing but the service quality also kind of sucks sometimes.

Yeah, I feel the same way.

Yep, it is dumb. It's only worth it if you are outside North America... like in India, or something.

It’s worth it if you are out of market and have cable

Not sure it has been posted but Klay thought taking the boat Santa Cruz!

Bob Myers: So, I called him Saturday. He picked up and first thing he says is, 'Beautiful day, huh?' And then I knew he was OK. He said, 'I'm thinking about getting out on the boat.' He was talking about taking it down to Santa Cruz, but it was too far. I knew at that point he was fine.

Lakers can’t catch a break…

SO SAD

(Hope the best for LBJ and that he makes it through COVID with a minimum of fuss)

they said he doesn't have any symptoms, so hopefully he's all good. Still puts him in quarantine protocol right?

So excited for these silly narratives to die... it all evens out in the end.

It feels like an indirect (unintentional?) plug for using SRS rating on bballref. It takes into account both SOS and point differential

1. GSW 12.34

2. UTA 8.53

3. PHX 6.23

4. MIA 5.23

5. CHI 4.00

Pretty sure the “soft schedule” becomes a top 10 toughest schedule after our next two games. After which we’ll still be somewhere between 18-4 and 20-2.

Same for Phoenix lol

SO WRONG! Phoenix will be somewhere between 17-6 and 20-3 ;-)

Cranjis McBasketball(aka @Tim_NBA)'s BS Steph defense take is just trolling to get folks to sign up for his own Stat site at $52.50 a rear. Check the "contact us" email on BBall Index - cr.mcbasketball@gmail.com. Either it's a straight up scam site or it's just some dude's home brew stats designed to justify the dude's existing opinions.

You don't generally see a "per ass" pricing model!

LOL honesty in advertising.

We can add "hyped up games against a Chris Paul team with DeAndre at center" to the list of things similar to '14-15.

It kills me how people thought clippers had a chance that year in the playoffs against us

I thought they did, too … till they choked away the WC semis v. to the likes of Josh Smith and Corey Brewer…

Expand full comment

if the warriors win both of these games against the sons, then at the end of the season, or in playoffs it could be tantamount to a 3 game swing. A split 1-1 does nothing like that
