It's all about matchups.
The Jazz with Gay as small ball 5 might actually be dangerous in the playoffs. And Phoenix is just flat out good. I think us with Klay and Wise should take the West, but it’s going to be very far from easy.
Speaking of teams atop the West missing two starters, the Suns just beat the Celtics like a worn-out drum without Ayton and Book. The West may not be the juggernaut of yore, but both its top teams are for real. Dubs gotta keep their edge here.
Some Warriors article at Dream Shake:
Rockets tied with the Bucks midway through the third. What a turnaround!
Since I hear Philly is scoping trade options for Ben Simmons: DeAaron Fox was gifted 2FT, down 1, with 2 seconds left… and bricked both.
Tornado warning in STL, hanging out with the fam in the basement.
There’s a good article by Powell on the NBA site on Steph’s impact and legacy. This section on the other basketball greats is interesting.
“George Mikan made the NBA widen the lane. Bob Cousy wrote the manual on the pass. Elgin Baylor showed how to play in the air. Chamberlain changed rules. Larry Bird and Magic Johnson saved the league. Tim Hardaway invented the crossover dribble. Allen Iverson caused a cultural shift. Dirk Nowitzki defied European stereotypes. Michael Jordan created the marketing machine. The Dream Team welcomed the world to basketball.
Steph Curry moved the game 23 feet from the rim, and beyond.”
There’s no mention of Lebron. LOL!

"Curry, who is second in the NBA in scoring and first in both 3-pointers made and attempted, got 94 of the 100 first-place votes cast in the 2021-22 debut of ESPN's MVP straw poll, which was conducted from Dec. 3 through Dec. 6."
Off topic but not: Ants comments about Rudy are waaaaaay out of pocket.
Like bro you're on the Timberwolves, sit down
Doesnt it bother anyone that with moody, jacobs, jfk, the two way pg that the scw seem to be terrible. Get blown out, have poor stats etc
Tuned in to the SCW game in the 4th. Utter garbage time with a soap opera with loud kids chanting for the Clips to put in "Gary". He finally gets subbed in w 2 min left, Gary misses several possible chances to hoist a shot... he gets the ball with 20 sec left and he fires up a shot because some things are more important than etiquette and MAKES THE THREE. Crowd and Clips go bananas
Santa Cruz is playing right now by the way, on the usual Warriors NBC channel.
Lebron with the triple double! And Westbrook with the triple single!
Jazz routed the 76ers tonight. I assume it's because the Sixers were on a second night of a back-to-back and used up so much of their to beat the Hornets last night that they didn't have much left in the tank tonight.
