Game 9. GSW 115, LAC 105 wait what? LAC was just up 20 points...
I saw Steph right after yelling to himself, I wondered if he was frustrated at not getting the relocate.
Wiggins taking over the game and dragging it out of blowout territory. He’s so comfortable on the second unit with Paschall and him taking turns attacking.
Steph counters the PG top lock and arm lock by backdoor cutting. Good move but sadly the shot blocked hard
Clippers should feel bad that GSW got within 6. I missed Q1, but from the score, should I gather that Wiseman got torched?
hah, felt a bit bad for Steph there, he got past a trap at the top of the key and no one else on the team moved the whole time. He just stopped and looked at the sky.
LAC is disrupting our elementary understanding of the O by overplaying the first pass in sets, often very innocent swings across the top
It must be nice to overplay the passing lanes against a team that is too disorganized to backcut on you.
Well, not looking promising, by LAC is a bit hot shooting and GSW a bit cold. If that flips, this could get close again.
The Wiggins-Kawhi duel is way more interesting than you’d expect
You know I was looking at that Wiseman - P Bev jump ball and of course Wiseman taps it to the wrong side and LAC recovers
[several LGWers said it was the correct side] I’d have to look at a replay again, but I saw two Dubs lined up on the left side, not the Steph right side
Maybe, but Wiggs has drawn a number fouls on KL and seems to bother his shot
I tell you, there is something about Wiggins that bothers Kawhi. I can’t completely explain it
Oubre going to challenge the Pietrus record for stepping out on the sideline
Haha, KL steal on Wiggs, Wiggs gets it back. If someone just clipped the isos between the two, this would be a pretty fun game.
Steph gets doubled on the HORNS Curl Split, somehow GSW can’t take advantage. Looney bobbles the pocket pass. Steph goes 1 v 5, somehow gets out of the corner trap, but charge.
Motion Weak PNR gets Steph a 3 attacking Zubac early. Every time LAC goes up by 20 the mercy rule is LAC has to put Zubac back in. He’s a good player, but not a good matchup for him to guard Steph.
Steph to Mulder on the 2 v 1 break. One of the very rare fast breaks run well this year
Hey, great pass from Mulder. I think two Clips followed over the stagger screen, Looney cuts open. *followed Steph... who else on this team would two Clips follow (sad laugh)
Where are we as a country if a young man like Looney is not free to warmly hug his colleague Kawhi... are we robots? Are we golems? Are we
Have I mentioned Steph is only fully alive during the 2-for-1? No guilt.
That stagger screen is the only play I’ve seen working for Steph v LAC. Maybe because he can stay on ball with a phalanx of blockers and not rely on someone else playmaking
Maybe the bench can keep it to single digits and then randomness can ensue?
Ah... leaving Steph in?
What a skip pass to Damion!! Wow. Double comes up high wing... Going at Zubac and Kennard relentlessly.
Zubac cannot handle Gramps!!
The bench is the plucky 13 seed that doesn’t know to give up
I’m surprise Wiggs isn’t out with second unit. Maybe managing Wiggs minutes due to his contusion
I assume down the stretch if it’s still a game, they will go to that stagger screen for Steph until it’s solved
Paschall shoots 10% better on shots when he fully kicks himself in the butt
Dray posted up Bev... when Damion hoisted the 3, Dray sagged with every cell in his bode
Sweet... PG had Wana...I kept saying Don’t let him pull up, don’t let him pull up... yes, shot clock
There is the stagger screen for Steph again. Just run that over and over. Got Wiggs a decent look, charge
Sweet tap that gets Dray an OREB and AST on the same touch.
Jesus, that LAC corner 3, i have to rewatch to see why it’s always open. Maybe over helping in the paint? Huge OREB from Wiggs
Last year, the Warriors motto was “Close Enough To Be Exciting”. Let’s see if we can do a little better this year and actually close
I’m still expecting LAC to hit a zillion 3s on us, but... we’re definitely in range of puncher’s chance to grab this
Bev coming to screen for KL. I wonder if Steph will try the High Tag D
Steph Dray and three sort of shooters.
yep, Steph Dray PNR with 3 shooters. But Dray with the sweet fake
I *think* that was a Dray fake handoff. Super unhelpful camera
Definitely will take a coin flip against LAC
DEFINITELY in random ending territory here
That was not good offense, with Steph forcing Kawhi off Wiggs to get... PG on Wiggs. No I cannot endorse that Wiggs just pulled that 3 out of his butt. Also: YEAAAAAAAAAAH
Steph pulls a 3 out of his own butt. PG in the mixer
Up 12, 38.8 sec left. I.... think... they got... this.......?
I think it would be too much to just E1P live react to that entire last run (from Q3 end) but this game is begging for that
I really don’t like dumping on Oubre, so I won’t do it in an article but... the offense did come alive once he got off
