Whelp that didn’t go well but it was better than watching the Knicks game.

Glad they put Wiseman back in in the 4th. Thought the coaches had gone insane for a few minutes there.

Starters with Wiseman-26, Curry without Wiseman +2, Curry and Draymond 0.

Wiseman with the bench +16. Where is Wiseman going to gain confidence while getting game reps?

At what point do we decide Curry’s sanity is more important than Developing Wiseman?

Steph’s new record , Nico playing good in front of his family and a good practice for bench warmers at least made my stomach feel better than when I watched the game vs NY !

I got this GI problem after seeing KD’s tweet announcing his leave to Nets.

Didn't even watch this one. I'm chalking this one up as a schedule loss. Altitude plus 2 AM plane arrival plus good team in the Jazz.

That said, these next two games are essentially playoff games as far as I'm concerned. I'd prefer a short leash for Wiseman in both of them. Warrior fans (including myself) are not going to take kindly to anything other than a sweep of the Wolves.

The good thing is the NBA doesn’t do aggregate points. A loss by 50, 20 or 1 all counts the same.

Deep bench squad coming through to hide the fact this would have been a 50 point loss if UTA tried at all in H2.

Nico does not play like a rookie.

Have I mentioned I have irrationally good feeling about him?

I don't feel anything irrational about it! The way he runs the team and plays within himself... solid defender and he's decently built. And he actually has a shot.

If he can get reliable on his three pointer, I think that will be the difference between sticking in the league or not. It will give him so much more space to drive.

That was good manners. Mulder had a semi open 3, skip pass to Nico. Instead of hoisting, Nico drives and kicks back to Mulder for the same semi open 3. Score. Inefficient but good manners.

Eh Wiseman kept the ball in the post on a Nico-Poole split cut. Bad garbage time manners. Look for the cutters first. Then try some crazy ass play.

Okay I take it back, Nico hit a pull up 3. Garbage time good.

Had to step out for a while for family reasons, not nausea. But not sure I have the energy to sift through garbage time for future silver linings

Minnesota is our silver lining.
