Warriors put the Raptors to bed. Tastes like victory!
Warriors pre-season goal setting session.
Steve: OK, so we've won this thing as the up and coming underdogs, twice as the undeniable favourites, and once as the unexpected dark horse. Is there anything else you guys want to achieve?
Petty King: What's the lowest seed anyone's won it from?
Two whole days off, what to do… TLoU on Sunday, football, um……..
Just a reminder that I told y’all before the season started that DDV would make everyone say “GPwho?”
I’m an even bigger fan (if that was even possible) after seeing him mic’d up. Between his constant communication on the floor to coaching Wiseman on the bench, the dude is our new Igoudala (but he can shoot!)
I like DDV more and more all the time. Not that I wanted to lose GP3, and it's not an either or situation, but I think DDV was an upgrade. He just does so many things so well.
(Per 36 minutes)
Player A: 13.3 pts on .581 TS, 9.3 reb
Player B: 14.9 pts on .601 TS, 10.0 reb
A is OPJ last season; B is JMG this season.
get the lead team: curry/poole/klay/wiggins/green + ty
hold the lead team: curry/ddv/kuminga/green/looney + lamb
still feeling joyful about Kuminga's three point flurry
loved how the game kept rewarding him for playing with the right energy
It seems like Kerr left JP unleashed as long as he possibly could afford to and where he finds himself in the rotation going forward is going to depend a lot more on his decision making than his contract.
Have to tell yall. Just finished Season 2 of Alice in Borderland and im as confused as ever.
Steph Curry on the Warriors floating around .500 this season:
"Kinda sick of it at this point. Gotta find out how to keep moving in the right direction and stack wins no matter how we can get ‘em."
I find it hard to distinguish the playstyle and body types of Scottie Barnes, Precious Achiuwa, and O.G. Anunoby, and not too far away are Pascal Siakam, and Thad Young. All are 6'7" - 6'8" Otto Porter Jr. is the same size -- but him I'd recognize. I wonder if Toronto has overspent in one department.
Donte DiVincenzo: “11 assists it looks good but I’m playing with two of the greatest shooters of all time.”
Yoooo… Kyle Anderson hit ‘em with the Night Night after a late 4th quarter steal off Ja and sweet assist.
It feels like tonight’s team was good but one long high defense, board grabbing multi-level threat forward away from true excellence. Know any good ones that might be available?
Maple Jordan anyone?
Raptors will be facing the Blazers tomorrow. Then they'll face the Suns on Monday and the Jazz on Wednesday. They are 1-1 in their 5-game road trip so far (beat the Kings and lost to the Warriors).
