It's not easy, but Golden State is making it look like it is this season.
THIS IS RUSS
Russell Westbrook had 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting, 10 assists and four turnovers in another rough game for the Lakers' former MVP. He was taken out with 2:34 left in the third quarter and didn't play in the fourth while the Lakers made their comeback.
Westbrook said he was disappointed he couldn't play in the final period, and he was seen consoling James and Davis on the bench after the rally fell short. Westbrook deferred to Vogel's decision, but said he feels he has "earned the right" to close games.
Westbrook got light booing in spots from the home crowd, particularly when he missed an 11-foot jumper in the first half and committed two turnovers in 12 seconds in the second half.
Westbrook called the boos "a sign of respect" and later said basketball wasn't "the end-all, be-all... Whatever comes, cheers, boos, it doesn't really matter."
Steph Curry +492 (#1 in the NBA, +121 over any other player, and +208 over any other Warrior)
LeBron James -18 (#358 in the NBA)
Now I understand why the Kings are historically (and hysterically) dysfunctional. I will be sincerely sorry for them when The Helicopter will mercilessly dunk on Sabonis' head.
LoLakers… their fans are delusional.How do they think they going trade for Dame with 0 assets.
The Bucks getting 20 pieced next game. They love to show out on prime time.
By the way that Mark Daigenault quote about "before sight" is hella dumb. If judgement prior to the trade is useless, then there would never be trades. FOs have to have some idea (and make certain predictions in their mind) before doing the trade. Similarly, observers can also have legitimate opinions about the trade too.
You make decisions (or judgements) with the information you have. If future information comes out that makes your decision bad, there's nothing you can do about that. But decisions have to be made at that time. We have priors (and that's not a bad thing!) and we use them all the time though those priors are not 100% exact. The only thing is that we need to keep updating those priors with the newer information.
love Loon for the Warriors union rep (Wise as the alternate is interesting)
Down goes Looney. Questionable with a quad contusion tomorrow. Hopefully it’s just minor.
With Sabonis in Sactown, gotta think old friend Damian Jones could be pried pretty easily. He’s improved a lot since we last saw him, and has the key side benefit of not having to learn Kerrball principles with only 25 games left in the season. Any takers?
White players always referred to as "sneaky athletic" and black players always referred to as "beasts". Hard to untether language from centuries of racist world views.
Edit: This was in reference to Connaughton being referred to as sneaky athletic by the commentator after a dunk.
If the West stays as it’s trending, I don’t relish facing Memphis in the second round …. but I wouldn’t relish facing the Denver-Dallas winner either.
Total off topic: 350+ comments on an off day article…nice work DNHQ!
Personally, I like that the Suns are winning a lot. I don't want them thinking they need to make any big trades even though the healthy Warriors are beating them in 5 or 6.
fuck Marcus Morris man
The only difficult game left for the Suns before the All-Star Break is the vs. Bucks on Thursday. I swear, if the Suns win that one....
Patty Mills: 22 minutes … -47
