i don't even. are warriors going to lose the series?

the defense is there. the offense sure as hell isn't

i feel like this has the potential to be a one year type thing cuz they have to give max to draymond

Z-Bo is killing them with that annoying jab-step jumper.

i feel like draymond defends him pretty well tho. but bogut can't and grizzlies keep trying to switch. watching bogut run is painful.

i dont understand. i feel like i've seen warriors unable to knock down a lot of open shots

Watching Memphis is like watching a better version of Chicago. Such win. Very defense. Wow

"The Bulls win at the buzzer".

That was special. Really special.

I love this team, Noah is shit, they can't execute, but fuck are they worth cheering for.

That's kind of interesting...who are you referring to in particular? I feel like most of them have reasonably established voices and don't try to ape Simmons very much.

I actually wonder if Simmons is gonna be able to poach some grant land writers wherever he goes. That's part of the reason I called it lose lose.

Rose definitely hit a big shot. Doesn't exempt his past choices, but thanks for making all that effort to quote me. The Bulls performance is worthy of changing people's views on them/him, just like C Paul gritting that game 7 winning shot. It makes me rattle my wrists with clenched fists about CP, but I am super happy for Rose, who has suffered. I welcome his playoff run, meaning I tip my hat and admit I might be wrong, but then again, it's 1 shot off the backboard, so I hope he does more to build a legacy.

PS, I've liked the Bulls grit for a few years. Always wanted them to succeed... if that needs me re-qouting lemme know.

As long as he distances himself from Jalen Rose, we will all be better for it. laugh.gif

Hard to agree with you, buy FFS yes, and especially Jacoby. Take Lowe with you, though.

Memphis is like kryptonite for the Warriors. They are playing well right now and may be the team to beat in the West.
post #22153 of 27206
i always thought memphis was a bad matchup for warriors, but not for the reasons they're losing right now

Cue "Jump shooting teams can't win championships" by Barkley
post #22155 of 27206
Its really bizarre. Memphis has a lot more common right now w/ the team from the early reg season, as opposed to the one that was listless and mediocre after the all star break. Basically every player is playing well on either D or O except Jeff green who is trash.

For golden state, curry is struggling and way out of rhythm after getting held a ton and being trapped on every screen, klay is very hit or miss, draymonds lacks of height is concerning on D against one of the very few teams against which it matters, iggy is totally invisible, bogut is shook on O and D...yeah. But they can always put it together and dominate the next game.
