Game 30. ORL 124, GSW 120. Dubs dig a hole, build a mountain, re-dig the hole, Steph almost pulls it out.
The 2020-21 Warriors: Close Enough To Be Exciting
Is the glass half-full? Or did the glass miss a bunch of layups and foul shooters? Did ORL get lucky when Terrance Ross hit a ridiculous three down the stretch, or did GSW get lucky when Stephen Curry hit two miraculous threes down the stretch? The answer is… yes.
Steph gets caught guarding a big, tried fronting, lob over, he just is frantic enough to induce a travel
Our guy Juanito, harasses guy at arc, smoothly doubles Vooch, scrambles to recover to man.
Our Guy Juanito and Dwayne Bacon have a bit of a soap opera last game which I documented in Part 2 (unreleased). (Here imagine Juanito as large falling object, Bacon as My Cabbages Guy.) I wonder if they’ll get into it again.
Juan grabs the loose ball from Oubre steal, sweet no look dish back to KO on fast break for dunk.
Steph is seeking that contact so hard on drives this season... that pause on the drive to give the trail D a chance to run into him
Baze with the mandatory foul of 3PTer. haha joke’s on you, Ross had a foot on the line
Two Way Wiggs now at Center getting buttwhumped around the court by Vooch
They snuck Draymond back in. He’s playing like he weighs 350 pounds
The rare PNR where the D wants both players to shoot.
Our Guy Juanito with a 3 that hit every part of the basket as well as several cars in the parking lot, but it went down
Vooch has this odd line drive hook that defies physics and works.
Mulder is keeping us in it
ORL somehow dominant with the Iguodala strips.
Wiggins with the big dunk try... I like it, massive dunk attempts increase his mana by 50%
Oubre making a difference with sheer hustle
Wow, no respect from Wiggins for Vucevic defense. I like how Our Guy Juanito triggered that iso with the handoff
Gorgeous diagonal pass from Wiggs for an Oubre dunk
argh, I cried out in physical pain when Juanito missed the bunny from the Draymond tap rebound. Even Luke Skywalker missed some shots
I liked Kerr motto to not be mad about missed shots, but rather missed boxouts
Steph banged on that layup (no call) but had the hall of fame presence of mind to flex on the way down
High five for the alley oop
Sounds like a duo that would be constantly cooked on defense
I think if ORL stays hot from 3, they win. If they keep up the horrible turnovers, we win.
Hey I was more specific than “if ORL scores more points” geeez
There’s some weird anti-synergy between Wanamaker and Paschall. Like they both want to run the play. I made an E1P about it, but never quite wanted to release something negative like that.
Wiggins was a rock on D and T Ross just bounced off of him
Wanamaker baited MCW into that contested layup and immediately anticipated the brick
Evan “Never Google” Fournier is just torturing us
Looks like the high altitude is finally catching up with the Warriors. What?
Only my second time!! And this was a weird ending. The other one wasn’t weird. I’m 1-2
Game definitely on track for a random ending, but even more so a WEIRD random ending. I think Goofus wanted to track these bad forebodings of mine...
ORL is screening to get Dray off Vuc, then Vooch posts up hard
Still math possible
The random ending machine spun and... pointed to a picture of buttocks
Wow Random Ending Machine now points at picture of Steph taking a picture of buttocks out of the garbage
STILL MATH POSSIBLE
Okay, even Math has to give up at this point. That last 2 min was fun as hell though
