Feels like a sneaky huge win. A loss would have dropped us into a tie with #12 OKC. Now we're #7.

So, clearly we've just been Biden our time until we got to D.C. to put it together.

Knicks-Raptors game heading to overtime

Any word on JK? Would be great to have him back for the upcoming B2B.

Given that we won, I guess it's hard to criticize no PBJ but I would have liked to see him get at least a few minutes.

Expand full comment

PBJ won't be playing much outside of blowouts now that we're getting bodies back

Expand full comment

Once we get those bodies back (JK, JMG, JW), they can send PBJ back to Santa Cruz. But while he's here, a few minutes here and there would be a good thing. He'll contribute given a chance.

I want minutes for him as well but Steve seems to be experimenting with his playoff rotations right now. Went real heavy with his top 7 guys

Expand full comment

I think he just shortened the rotation because we needed a W.

Will Barton fell out of the Wizards rotation because of his shooting struggles this season.

Expand full comment

Their biggest mistake was sitting him out. He would have been a guaranteed 30 points against us

I never saw Will Barton as a Warriors killer. He was just a guy who does very well in one game and awful in the next few games or so.

Expand full comment

He's terrible against the Warriors (and terrible in general). That "Barton = Warrior Killer" meme has always been a Fitz creation.

My boxscore has him +37. And -28 in 23 minutes without him. Insane.

What the hell is Featus wearing lol

Festus is usually styling but that's just butt ugly.

Looks like he forgot to tuck in his shirt lol

I think he put the vest thing on backwards

Trying to figure that out in our household as well.

What a turn around from Steph! What a game from Dray! Plus great work from Jordon.

Expand full comment

I'm scared to even think about this next stretch of games...

Expand full comment

Double double for Draymond.

I am 1-2 in my prediction for this road trip.

@ Spurs- Win (correct)

@ Bulls- Win (incorrect)

@ Wizards- Lose (incorrect)

@ Celtics- Lose (???)

@ Cavaliers- Lose (???)

Example # infinity of why predicting a stretch individual games is a silly and pointless endeavor. Just predict percentages of each game and tally them up!

You're 100% correct in your prediction of 2-1. :-)

We'll lose in Boston and beat the Cavs
