MUST WIN GAME 7 IN SACTOWN!
Nooooo! Not Jimmy!!
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…Worried about game 7, but the rest of the playoffs are pretty watchable. Loving the Knicks/Heat so far (go Jimmy Buckets! Go Mavs survivor, Jalen B!) Boston/Philly should be fun if Embiid can get back, but will still be cheering on Sixers (Harden’s) downfall. And last night’s tromping of the Suns was especially delightful.
I think I am going to chicken our and not watch the game live. May be too stressful.
Hold down the fort all the while I will be curled up in a ball waiting for the game to be over.
Gonna be real quiet in Sacramento in a couple of hours.
One good thing that happened in the NBA is that the Suns LOST! Thank you Denver.
Nessun dorma, nessun dorma ...
Does anyone have the url for Denver Nation HQ?
(Asking for a friend)
if we come correct tomorrow and play like HOW WE SHOULD, i feel good about us. historically we have played our best ball when our backs are against the wall. even in losses we fought to the bitter end. i don’t expect us to go out like chumps tomorrow. not with steph, klay and dray leading the charge.
Poole is shooting 24% from three, 41% from two, and 77% from the line in this series lol. At least he's a lockdown defender.
14 hours to game that has soo fucking much riding on it, a loss has to equal major changes, I'm down for a title this year or a loss to a likeable team in the kings and a system change, I do not want to see us make the same mistakes and lose to lebron, jokic or soft ass tatum
When you have a player like Steph Curry on your team, your chances increase and the coach's reliance on him also increases. This is a double edged sword as it compromises the playmaking overall and too often focuses on Curry as The Man. He's already the man and we need to make sure all our assets are involved and contributing. Curry will get his but if the focus on him is lopsided, then we suffer. Kerr can't keep expecting the heroic comebacks we've had ala Curry/Splash Bros. They need major contributions from the other players. Look at that game 5 victory. Draymond scoring like a new acquisition. Feed him, set him up, make him a shooter. Make sure Wiggins has a 20+ game and get Poole to focus on ball control or get the ball out of his hands. I don't care if he doesn't score 20+ but I do care if he loses possessions due to carelessness and bad decision making. Get some height into the game with Kuminga. He can be useful. That's why he's on the team, Kerr, for you to use him and make sure he succeeds.
Nuggets are impressive they have everything to go all the way, but it’s still just game 1
Dang, Nuggets had +17 FGAs than the Suns. They also had 9 more threes made, -2 FTAs, +11 total rebounds (+8 off.), and -7 turnovers. The player with the most amount of turnovers? Kevin Durant with 7 turnovers.
Not to add pressure on the Dubs, but they have to win tomorrow for one team from each number seed to advance to the second round.
Nuggets beat the Suns 125-107.
Holy Sugar, Denver running Suns off the floor. Their pace reminds me a lot of Steph/Klay/Barnes/Dray/Andre/Lee running and gunning, back in their younger days when MALONE was MJAX's assistant....of course it all began with lockdown defense from Dray/Klay/Andre/Barnes, followed by quick outlet passes to the flanks/immediate transition to leaking players....
