Had to step out with 10 minutes left... just saw the final score, thought I'd see more bummed reactions here but seems like the Wizards just played really well and we looked tired?

Okay, that ending felt pretty bad to watch, but after I wrote it up with a slightly calmer eye, it's not as bad. Post game space here: https://www.letsgowarriors.com/p/29-30-dubs-blow-it-in-the-final-seconds

The game started too early for Warriors. Lack of napping time.

Game over and only 6:50 pm? Good night, folks.

On the bright side ,,, there is now a bridge connecting Wiggins Island and Oubre Island -- so it's a lot easier now for y'all to go from one to the other.

Oubre really fizzled out later in the game. He was like a tire with a slow leak, ending up flat.

I think this was kind of bound to happen with all the Curry hype since the last few games and the end of a long road trip. *sigh*

Yeah, he was long overdue for a stinker. Nobody stays at the top forever

Not too broken up about the loss. End of a long road trip, playing smallball is tiring, etc.

Could use Lee, JTA, and even Paschall back as soon as possible.

Our guys keep dropping like flies, we're not gonna have many bodies left to play if this keeps up

This season more than any is a war of attrition. Just saw Trae Young go down holding his ankle (not sure if it's serious).

But the Warriors have an open roster spot, you'd think they'd at least add another body on a 10 day contract to prepare for an emergency or something.

Damian Jones is on a 2nd 10 day with Sacramento. Maybe they're waiting on it to run out since the Kings can't sign him without adding him to their roster.

Mo Wagner isn't any kind of long term answer but if Looney and Draymond get into foul trouble I'd much rather see him than Smailagic.

Exactly. I was honestly expecting a loss, I just don't like being a downer

Expand full comment

I wasn't expecting a loss but I'm not alarmed by how they lost or anything, Curry played one of his worst games of the season and they were still in it until the end even being shorthanded.

Now if the Wolves beat the Kings again tonight, then I'll be broken up lol.

Man... they still played well, just couldn't close unfortunately.

Wizards are hot rn, let's just move on to Denver

Expand full comment

Thought played horribly, personally. Or at least incredibly erratically. They had a 20-1 run, another 20-4 run, and a 10-3 run in the late 3rd / early 4th to put the Wiz on the ropes with the MVP resting.

Outside of that they played shockingly poorly against a pretty bad team.

Expand full comment

I think the Wiz are better than their record indicates honestly.

Doesn't matter tho, smoking those Nuggs on Friday

So much for "momentum" as Kerr keeps saying

Expand full comment

I disagree. If not for Curry's poor shooting night, they are playing better than they have and continue to score and defend. They've got plenty of momentum but are they as good as they have been playing, recently? That is the big question. I would have said no earlier in the season, but some things have come together, but Curry is still the man on this team and if he stumbles, the team will probably stumble no matter how good they are playing. Next season will be different.

True. Also JTA would have been great in this game.

Ok, 🙏🏼 Spurs, Mavs and Grizzlies, lose today please

Expand full comment

And Wolves.

Hear Hear. BBGods - make it so

Don't be surprised if the Warriors start off slow again next game. That first game back home is a tough one. I can't say I'd be completely shocked if we lose to Denver as well

Expand full comment

Well this is the first time I participated in a game thread in forever...not doing that again lol. Jinxed Oubre and Wiggs for the second half. (Abaddon spare me)

Expand full comment

disgusting start to the game

Expand full comment

I don't watch other teams enough but damn I feel like the Kerr led teams are infamous for slow starts. Only difference is our overwhelming talent hid all of that in years past

Expand full comment

It's slow starts + careless passes. The careless passes will always be there with a team with steph and dray

Expand full comment

12/45 from steph and wiggs..ouch

Expand full comment

Why the f*ck is Baze hesitating and pump faking with 5 seconds left and an open look from 3?? Fvck this team.

What a complete nutpunch of a loss. Against the same garbage team that nutpunched us last game. Total choke job, starting with our MVP.

Sleepy changed when transitioning to LGW. Sleepy's was always upbeat about the team no matter.

Hope all is well, Sleepy.

Dam bro chill! Wizards aren’t as bad as their record indicates

Expand full comment

Possibility 1: He was pump faking to try and get a 4 pt play.

Possibility 2: He forgot they were down by 4 pts.

Take your pick.

They aren't a garbage team. Get a grip.

Let's hope Spurs and Mavs and Blazers loose too
