Explain One Play: Steph Curry - Kevon Looney flat pick and roll fuels clutch comeback vs Donovan Mitchell's Cavs
A list of all Explain One Play articles and videos is at The new Explain One Play index.
The Golden State Warriors with four and a half minutes to go versus the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2022.11.11.CLE-GSW made a very impressive comeback, not just because of the deficit, but because fouls were called on the Warriors on practically every play down the stretch. They went repeatedly to a flat pick and roll with Stephen Curry and Kevon Looney and we’ll look at different versions of the play to show how the Cavs kept adjusting their defense and how the Warriors countered.
Co-starring Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins. With Jarrett Allen and Donovan Mitchell.

Frak yeah! Dems got Senate control back. Biden can keep appointing judges (among other things).
Y’all are missing the point about the referee calls and reviews. It’s like this: Mounted alongside the video monitors at the Secaucus facility are copies of the latest report on who has paid Adam Silver protection money and who hasn’t. This report is issued to all game referees as well.
Now, Joe Lacob doesn’t want to pay that protection money because he figures the luxury tax he’s paying ought to be more than enough to cover it. In fact, if he did pay protection money, he expects the league would find a way to slap a luxury tax on that too. So he’s holding out, and as a result, we’re on the referees’ hit list. That’s why we get crappy calls and reviews.
I’m sure all of the above is true because it feels true. That’s all that’s required for “truth” nowadays, right? I rest my case.
