WCS wasn’t the long term answer at 5, so I’m fine with this move. When they picked him up, I thought, ok this solved this position. But watching him, I was just never consistently impressed. The bigger problem to solve is getting a 5 that really helps them to compete with the best teams. Maybe the draft can solve this!

All those killer IND open 3s are coming from GSW D collapsing cause no one can handle Sabonis on the roll. Rotations, IND has quickly found the open guy.

I don't know how anyone can watch Russell play defense and think he can be part of a championship team where he is playing the 2.

Dray with an ingenious rotation to double Sabonis in the post from the blind side to force a panic turnover.

Argh, that play was a huge turnaround. Poole caught looking away, McC drives, Omari doesn’t rotate, layup. GSW counterattacks with McC on the ground 5 v 4. Wild play, Chriss loses ball.

Poole is a confident kid. I like that.

Poole's 3PT% before G League stint: 24.2 percent

Not quite there yet, but a significant improvement nonetheless

I think if Dubs can avoid the complete gimme live turnovers, they could make this close.

Draymond

Drummond

Ben Simmons

Curry

Klay

Day day

Marc Gasol or comparable stretch C

I'll have to get used to this new "top down" comment organization. WCS was not our solution at C for the next 2-3 years. If they get Ben Simmons they can look for a stretch 5 who can shoot. If they don't, they will need a strong defensive center. WCS isn't strong in either category. If they get Giannis, he would have sufficed, but the flexibility is key.

I have a confession. I have yet to watch a game at Chase.

Warriors at half vs. IND:

ORtg: 98.8

DRtg: 129.8

NetRtg: -31

eFG%: .561

TS%: .573

Dubs are shooting decently (46.3 percent overall, 50 percent on threes). Problem is that they're giving away possessions to the Pacers (13 TOs, Pacers scored 13 TO points). Bench points skewed heavily in favor of the Pacers (28-12). And Dubs aren't defending the three well, as usual (8-of-14 from beyond the arc from the Pacers, good for 57 percent).

Are completely OT musings kosher at this point?

The problem with Fitz is Kelenna. When fitz starts driving the car towards the edge of the road, Kelenna just grabs that steering wheel and steers him straight off the cliff. JB used to center Fitz back to being tolerable. Kelenna just encourages his antics.

GSW halfcourt D showing good stretches of cooperation but some bad breakdowns on hard cuts to the basket, and transition D is sloppy. But worst has been the live ball goofball giveaways and a couple of lucky Pacers 3s. That’s pretty much the whole lead

I think this is about "finish up the last half of the series finale of Into the Badlands" time for me. Trade Fitz and Burks... I'm willing to live with Evans next season riding the pine

Sweet defensive possession that ends with a D Lee steal. Starts with Chriss showing hard on a wing double screen (he clotheslines McConnell), then follows McC to the weak wing, then calls for a switch for Burks to pick up McC.
