Can the old dogs pull off one of their old tricks?

The problem with putting dray back on jaylen is Wiggs and loon (or opj or whatever) have to fight off their team for offensive boards
Good chance to seize the initiative tonight. What a difference a win would make! I desperately want it to happen but I’m also proud and grateful just for our guys to be out there in the arena doing what they do. They will be there to the last breath of this crazy, astonishing, fantastic season. I love that as they get older they seem increasingly mindful of how fleeting and special it all is. Time to weaponize that joy again! GO WARRIORS!!
Going to the watch party at Chase. Haven't been to a watch party since Game 5 during the TOR series. Let's hope we get the same ending
Atkinson to coach KO
Getting both games in Boston was always a long shot proposition. The Warriors are about to make it an even series with home court advantage once again, as long as Steph's foot isn't hurt badly enough to impede him. I think Draymond and Andy both step up big in this one and Klay should have another good shooting game. The only thing I'm anxious about is more injury potential - gotta grab those rebounds before they end up in a wrestling match on the ground. I'm pretty calm about it right now but I'm sure my blood pressure levels will be going up around game time.
So my adjustments would be:
- Box out and Wiggs aggression on the O boards.
- Get up in their jersey from the jump. None of this sagging off to start the game and letting them launch shots.
- Mirror Loon mins with RWIII mins (although that looked like it was happening in G3).
- More GPII on JB (Tatums too big for him) with the occasional blitz.
- If healthy 5mins (only 5mins!!) of Andre carrying the ball to get JP off ball for the first half. Give him a chance to get some confidence, then put the ball in his hands second half if going well.
- Some Moses mins on the second unit to space the floor for JP.
- Hopefully don’t need a Hail Mary with Kuminga
Unleash the Bjelly
The "DubnationHQ Basketball and Taco Blog" made me hungry, so I went and had fake Mexican for lunch.
I hear we have a game tonight against the San Diego Rockets?
Down 2-1, stop acting like the series is over. Intended for whoever it applies to. Toughen up.
In yesterdays interview, Steph did not really answer the question on how his leg/ankle injury was. He just said he was going to play. He seemed somber to me. I suspect that for the rest of the series we MAY be getting the Steph of the 2016 finals where he was not completely healed from his injury and the Cavs successfully took advantage of it. I truly hope it’s not the case.
The best French toast you’ll ever have is at Mission Cafe in San Diego. If you like cinnamon, don’t miss it. I like the location at Mission Beach. You can hit the boardwalk afterwards.
The Finals are supposed to be hard. The Celtics are likely the toughest opponent the Warriors could be facing. This is how it is supposed to be. This is properly epic. I am stoked! Let's go WAARRRRRRIIIIIIIIIOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRS!
Wiggins with his worst series of the playoffs so far :(
Another reason to be optimistic(?): If one believes in league officiating conspiracy theories*, Game 4 would be one to favor GSW as it would ensure at least 6 games of revenue.
Those De Cabeza tacos do look right!
