    100 percent knew this was going to be an L.

    Half our team out and we couldn’t bring up Damian Jones to play a couple minutes.

    Yah really tough on a back to back playing in Portland with a depleted roster. Dubs hung in there but those stupid fouls beyond the arc are just inexcusable. Steph plays we probably win.

    I thought Jones played a little? So over that clown. Guy should be contributing by now. Getting a center in the offseason will be a priority.

    Looks like Jones got 2 minutes. I must have blinked lol. I still don’t trust Kerr’s evaluation skills enough to make a decision on him without a decent shot at playing time. Especially on a night when our centers look like complete ass.

    Definitely going to be a priority in the offseason. ZaZa is too much of a defensive liability and Magoo is limited

    B2B loses.

    I’m about as interested as the players appear to be at this point.

    KD and Klay both shoot 35%.

    Disgusting.

    Klay missed a clutch wide open three with under two minutes. Not going to blame KD, he’s been carrying the team. Swaggy is useless. When the team is blowing out someone, he makes the threes.

    Not sweating it. Team is a walking MASH unit right now

    Its all good. This adversity will help the team. We have seen what happens when they go into the post season cocky or exhausted from fighting for the record/#1 spot.

    We will just have to dispose of Houston before game 7 :boxing:

    Yeah, things don’t seem right but we won’t know anything until the playoffs. I think we only have to win like 3 or 4 out of the remaining games to lock up the 2nd seed. Might be worth knocking that out right quick and resting guys the rest of the way. The only thing I don’t like about that is conceding to top spot allows Houston to rest also. One of the reasons D’Antoni’s teams fall apart in the playoffs is because he runs them ragged in the regular season.

    Steph's ankle is definitely a cause for concern. This is like the 4th time this season. We lose him for any length of time in the playoff we are done. Can't count on Klay to pick up the slack and aside from KD, we have no outside shooters. Klay apparently tweaked his ankle dancing at Steph's 30th birthday party. SMH.

    Be interesting to see how Kerr plays it down the stretch.

    We only have to win a couple of games to lock up the second seed. Might as well win those and go with a G League squad for the rest of the season.

    Don't want to be going in cold into the playoffs though.

    First round should be fine to get back into the grove.

    practice canceled because the team is hungover from Stephs Bday party. Glad to see they’re not sweating the season but they better back that shit up come playoff time.

    Im actually happy the Warriors are cutting loose. I see this more about blowing off steam before the intense postseason starts. They aren't unfocused, they are just managing their focus. That was the issue the record breaking season. I expect them to turn this shit on bigtime soon. The defense will start hustling JUST a little more and be slightly more aggressive.

    Rumors Klay might be out for "weeks" with a thumb sprain. No luck these days.


    At least their legs are getting rest I suppose. Chemistry won't be a problem with the first unit. The bench tho... gonna be a wild ride.

    Probably happened when his drunk ass fell at Steph’s party.

    Fractured thumb but saying he should be back before the end of the month. I just hope we don’t burn out KD before the playoffs.

    He only had 18 shots last night. The role players were scoring well. The defense looked better even without half the team.
