Warriors roll Thunder
Three pals in a three-year continuing text discussion re: Dubs:
-Nuts! Four teams all knotted up at 38 L's this late in season is unprecedented! (not confirmed by this author.)
Me, after OKC game started:
-We are going to break through in this game, I feel it, even if Steph has to go for 60!
-I'm losing my mind watching this game! Hope you all are doing good.
OKC's a tough out nowadays.
-Oh they are dynamic! Well-coached. Shai is one of the best players in the NBA, and they have a young, deep roster. Giddey is having an off game but is so good, the Williams lads, Dort, iJoe. Holmgren next season. All killers. Draft picks galore. Would not want to face them Rd1 in the postseason.
-Refuse to lose!
-Lakers/Clippers game this week is huge
Moses played the 5th most minutes of any Warrior last night.
Well the wife chose a great game for her Chase Center maiden voyage!
OH, WHAT A RELIEF IT IS..... GOING TO BE A CARDIO STRESS-TEST THE LAST 2 GAMES...lollakers breathing on our back....Still, I don't want 5th....GO WARRIORS....
Warriors play with that BIG 3 Energy.
It looks like the Warriors only need to play Warriors ball for half a game max and they win. Imagine what they will look like if they keep this up for 48 minutes.
Kudos to Moody for stepping up tonight, but for me the key player was Dray down the stretch as he kept making great plays (including scoring) that sucked the life out of the Thunder.
As long as Dray doesn't get a tech against the Kings, he'll be able to play the last two regular season games and start from zero in the playoffs.
So it looks like if the Clippers beat the Lakers, or if the Lakers beat the Clippers and the Suns win out, or if Dallas can edge into the play-in and then win the play-in tournament, or if Denver slides to the second seed, either way, the Warriors are the defending champs and *don't care about any of that* as they proceed to flip the switch into Playoff Mode. Do I have that right?
Can someone explain the starting lineup to me? I was confused AF. Why start Lamb instead of Loon?
Tomorrow's games are gonna be VERY interesting:
-Pelicans vs. Grizzlies, 5:00pm PST. Both are on a 2nd night of a B2B.
-Mavericks vs. Kings, 5:30pm PST. Kings are on a 2nd night of a B2B while the Mavericks will play after a two-day rest.
-Clippers vs. Lakers, 7:00pm PST. Lakers are on a 2nd night of a B2B while the Clippers will play after a three-day rest.
Do we prefer clippers or lakers at 7th seed?
Pulling doubly for the Grizz to beat the Pelicans tomorrow night. Not only would that give the Pels 40 losses, but Grizz would lock up the #2 seed (they hold the tiebreaker over the Kings), meaning the Kings would have nothing to play for on Friday night and might rest some of their key guys.
A Kings loss tomorrow also sews up the Grizz as #2 if the Grizz were to lose to Pels.
*Never mind - I was wrong on the tiebreaker. See thread below.
Ice cream of joy was damn good!!
I am quite happy right now 🥰🙂🤪
I liked the part where they won the game.
Well now we know we need two wins to lock in 6. Fridays game will be doubly huge since if we win, our first playoff game will be right back there. If this team can win these next 2 , end the season on a 3 game win streak, get wiggs back and get a week off ... watch out!
