Sure this game was sad. But I hate getting beat by guys like Jaylen Nowell and Malik Beasley.

I really hope JTA isn’t becoming the next D Lee, a sentimental team favorite but a minimum player, loved his trajectory to start the season

And overall, I think Bjelica is a nice pickup. He's a situational player who has his uses. He's obviously gonna be exposed in a lot of context but that's to be expected for a vet min guy (same with someone like JTA and late career Andre). You don't usually get OPJ types for vet min (or GP2 this year for that matter). Even currently on the market, I don't know if there are too many improvements out there. The buyout market looks threadbare this year too with so many teams looking to remain competitive due to the play-in tournament.

What are some possible bigs we could get with a first and maybe d lee, jta type of player?

Would’ve been super cool to see Klay drop an efficient 25 tonight. Could’ve won them the game. Oh well, here’s to Klaybot becoming terminator again soon.

Wolves just outplayed them, all of Fitz's excuses were really annoying. Just give the other team credit and stop being so obviously salty. I wish he wasn't a Warrior fan, it'd probably make his broadcasting a lot better.

This Draymond issue could be pretty significant, hopefully they can get him back before the playoffs. If they get GP2 back they can still have a top 10-ish defense without Draymond. Combine that with Curry and I think they can still win at a decent rate. They were able to win in Utah without Draymond, this isn't a hapless team as long as Curry is playing.

And as long as this team finishes top 6, they can weather this storm. I think they need home court for the Bucks (and low key maybe the Sixers if they make a nice Simmons trade before the deadline, and perhaps even Miami) but they can go into any arena for any Western Conference team and win if Curry/Klay/Draymond are healthy.

Time for this team to come home and get their legs back, I miss watching the tremendous pace they played with in the opening stretch of the season. Although that might only be a product of Draymond.

Are the Dubs feeding JK raw steaks and gallons of milk? How else is he supposed to grow to 6'10"? Not that he's bad at his size....

We got short end of a few calls, missed a layup leading to a transition 3 like 3 times in a row at the critical juncture of the game… it sucks

I saw a tired team that got super pissed off at PBev and his enablers/the refs in the third. Then the refs doubled down with more non-officiating while Beasley just killed whatever fumes they had left.

Definitely thinking about Marquese lately. That said, I have a feeling that particular alternative universe sees GPII elsewhere and I wouldn’t make that trade for a second.

If the Bucks game was Dray's application for DPOY, today was Steph's for MVP.

Pretty terrible day for Warriors fans with Dray's injury. Just hope he's healthy and right by the playoffs. As long as we're a top 4 seed, I don't think it really matters which seed we get (considering there are 4 top teams in the West).

As for this game, Kuminga and Poole were nice. Klay looked like Klay for a couple of minutes but there is definitely some slippage defensively with him (guys like McDaniels and Lamar Stevens in the Cavs game have blown by him a few times). Not a huge issue for this roster considering Klay's size (will be able to guard bigger players) and the presence of GP2/Wiggins as POA defenders, but it does mean we're unlikely to see the return of Klay as the primary POA defender against stars (which is fair at his age too even disregarding the injuries, dude's nearly 32 now).

Bjelica looked terrible but we can't play him too much without Draymond defensively so not putting too much stock into this game. The bigger issue with him are the TOs offensively - we just need to tell him to stop driving so much. He has really positive offensive value if he acts as a spacing 5 so let him stick to that. He's not Jokic.

Don't know why fans were getting after DLee, he was fine.

The homestand is fairly easy - Rockets, Pistons, Pacers, Twolves, Nets (without KD), so it would be nice to go 4-3 or 5-2 during this homestand. Obviously, this assumes that Steph gets back. We're a lottery team without him so all of this is moot if his hand thing is serious. On the positive side of things, we all know that post-injury Steph is the GOAT.
