Up 2 with 5 seconds. Defense, just a little D. Sighhhh.

That is why kids… practice your FT’s. You can do them until you get old and cant play organized basketball anymore

He’s been a marginal free thrower this year. He’s not the reason we lost. You want to know where we lost that game. Look at that Klay possession then losing his man completely on defense. The man can’t lateral move for crap right now

Nuggets just plain out executed the Warriors from the coaching down to the players at the end there.

Hack a loon was the decisive factor. It is what it is.

Looney goes 5-8 (.625) and the Warriors win. :-(

Brutal.

Does Steph really need to be in the game on a final defensive possession??? He was simply lost out there. Third time I have seen him burned by the inbounder. When we have a last stand defensive possession, we need the 5 best defenders on the court and not worry about hurting anyone's feelings. Jeesh!

The fact you think Steph was in there for ego reasons is sad

Expand full comment

Well why is he in there?

Expand full comment

Because he’s one of our five best defenders. And no he didn’t “fuck up” on the play.

Peace.

I'd love to hear how that wasnt a fuck up lol

Is it a fuck up when it seemed like the gameplan had them helping one pass away from Jokic a whole lot?

Feels like the Warriors under Kerr aside from the 73-9 season has entered the ASB on a low note every year lol

Expand full comment

Mike Malone tho

Expand full comment

He is a tricky mother fucker

Expand full comment

Nooooooooo.

Expand full comment

Anyways jokic is fuckin ridiculous

So Wiseman, have you by any chance been practicing free throws?

Expand full comment

Ok, even I'm starting to take the talk of needing a center seriously.

At least until Dray gets back.

I'm OK with the way the Dubs played. Just lost a close one to the league MVP. Not one of those terrible soul-destroyers where you wonder if your team can even play basketball.

It’s not the worst loss of the year by far. But I’m sad. Coulda. Shoulda.

Expand full comment

They were up eight with 2:45 to go. This is arguably the worst loss of the year.

Expand full comment

I watched them lose to the Indiana bench. That wasn't as fun as this.

Nuggets outscored the Warriors 39-30 in the final quarter. Warriors defense held the Nuggets well for three quarters, but the Nuggets offense became red hot in the 4th quarter. The missed FTs didn't help, either.

You better learn to shoot free throws Looney

First time in his career he's been put in that position I think; he'll grow from it.

Well. Tough ending. Time for the ASB. Peace

Expand full comment

Sorry guys. I was right. We ARE a fringe playoffs team. We are FAR too inconsistent.

TIME TO BLOW IT UP LETS GO MYERS

By the way, I assure you, I was going to write this even in case we won

Expand full comment

It’s an equally silly comment either way.

Expand full comment

Absolutely not! We are missing Dray's ability to guard a big down the stretch. Just as we would miss Steph if he was out for a while. This is a team that is based on a complimentary skill-set more than other teams. We are a very good team that will be better when Dray and Wiseman are back.

Expand full comment

Uh, what is your definition of “fringe playoff team”? Could be a language thing?

Expand full comment

We have a chance to win the first round, then we get Ja and we're done

“Fringe playoff team” = team that could end up in the lottery.

This game (and the couple that preceded it) do not change the team’s chances against Ja, which are not zero.

Okay please stop listening to my useless ranting, I'm way too depressed. I'm going to have a nice breakfast to gather myself, now. Good night buddies

Buona notte / buon giorno, amico!

Expand full comment

We’re missing Draymond. Without him, yeah, we aren’t nearly as good. You think we lose this game with Dray?

Expand full comment

Denver was missing two key players

Expand full comment

Sure, and Denver is a fringe playoff team. What’s your point?

Expand full comment

Just my opinion, worth nothing

Expand full comment

Without Dray, sure.

Expand full comment

🙄

Expand full comment

Lol nah.

Expand full comment

This was one of those games that we were beat with surgical precision. Every other loss recently has been the other team just playing like Game 7. Props to Denver not even mad at them.

Expand full comment

Totally agree, this looked really different. Obviously GP2 was a huge part of that.

Expand full comment

Yeah, that was just a flat-out good game
