getting tired of these bad random endings
https://open.substack.com/pub/dubnation/p/warriors-blow-yet-another-huge-lead?r=3lpzv&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web WAIT WAIT WAIT we lost again?
For posterity so I can refer back to it later in the season. Other than Asher B. and myself, who still believes that the Warriors are a very good team?
GP3 would have picked up George full court simply tp disrupt. Should be W's standard approach in last possession needing a stop or lower percentage shot ( think Malik Monk). Shame to give up such a great effort.
Derrick Lively with 20 pts/16 rbds/7 blocks. Ahhh what could have been.
Trades … the Dubs haven’t been a team for major in-season trades, and their most dumpable commodities (CP3 and Klay) are expensive, have problems, and hard to get rid of for team morale reasons. So I’m predicting they play it out with this crew. Klay and CP3 contracts are over and those two return on much cheaper deals (a possibility if they play so badly they keep the Dubs out of the playoffs) or not at all. All of a sudden the Dubs have some cap space to work with.
Dear 49ers, please don’t eff up this weekend completely !
From a DUBS fan
Steph has a negative net rating for the season. His turnover rate is terrible and his defensive metrics are really bad. Should we be worried or should this be cause for optimism because he's Steph and that will inevitably turn around?
Insane OKC v Dallas game.
OKC leads 111-87 with 10:30 left and is cruising to an easy win.
Dallas proceeds to go on a ***30-0*** run over a span of 6:07 (led by Seth Curry, Derrick Jones Jr., and Dereck Lively II) to take a 117-111 lead with 4 minutes left.
OKC, seemingly unfazed, closes the game 15-3 to win it, 126-120.
Didn’t catch the game. JK with a team high +5 but only 15 minutes after his “best game of the year.”
Loll… Steph in the second half: 18% TS
Lakers beat the Rockets 107-97. Lakers move to 12-9 and 8-2 at home while the Rockets fall to 8-9 and 0-8 on the road.
How many NBA players have stripped Haren on his patented double step back? Is it more than one?
Kings beat the Nuggets 123-117. Kings move to 11-7 and 6-2 at home while the Nuggets fall to 14-7 and 5-7 on the road. Nuggets nearly made a comeback late in the 4th Q, but the Kings managed to hold on.
Suns and Clippers won, and the Lakers and Kings are winning. Argh. Everyone in the Pacific Division is moving ahead of us.
I just can’t see the Warriors making any move involving a max contract UNLESS
a). Brings back another expiring contract like lets say a CP3 for Tobias Harris trade (AS AN EXAMPLE only)
b). Willing to trade Wiggins and possibly Kuminga using that Paul contract as a defacto expiring
Otherwise just looking at the standings there are about 22 teams in contention and 8 teams (4 from each conference) that can probably be counted as possible sellers at this point. Just don’t see any move centered around Kuminga and Paul/Wiggins that will give the Ws financial flexibility come offseason and also net us any impact starter. My money is on us staying put and reevaluating the roster this next offseason
> Pat Spencer will make his season debut tonight for the (6-1) @GLeagueWarriors against the (4-5) @ripcityremix. On air at 7pm PT on @NBCSAuthentic with myself on pxp, @DrewShiller on color and @JDumasReports on sidelines. Talk soon!
