GSW really loves going for the highlight plays at home -- for better or worse.


Indie, were you nervous at the 2 chances Cavs had to win the game at the buzzer (LBJ and Shump if I remember correctly)????

I woulda been as mad as hell if either of those shots went it haha

i was super nervous especially at the shump shot and the irving block on curry

Two points in OT for the Cavs though??

Easy internet troll answer will be "LBJ choked" (which I don't mind) but that GSW small-ball blitz had a lot to do with it.

honestly the amount of defense they get out of that small ball team is insane. and they're unstoppable on offense. i notice kerr always go to them in crunch time

Pretty stressful to watch as a warriors fan when we are the favorites. Thought Bron had the edge going into the stretch run with Dray close to fouling out and the Warriors relatively flat so needless to say I was ecstatic about overtime. Sorry to see that Kyrie might be hurt. Maybe Bogut too? Not sure what happened there and Kerr hasn't said anything yet in post-game.

If Klay or Steph can start hitting threes I just don't think Lebron would have much of a chance to win even with Tristan Thompson clearing offensive boards like he's playing against kids.

I should have thought of it earlier, but now that Cleveland is reduced to iso-Bron (even more so now that Kyrie appears to be pretty hurt), the Warriors are ideally suited to defend him. They can switch Iggy, Klay and Green on him - all of whom can bother him (yes I know he scored 44 but it wasn't efficient). Even Barnes can step in from time to time.

Only problem is that the Cavs will kill them all series on the boards

I'm actually hesitant to call them small ball considering their deceptively crazy length marchal.gif


Great contributions from Iggy this game (Green goes without saying...five fouls and still getting shit done)

still relatively efficient 18/38 (47%) is pretty good especially for a volume shooter. like 1 shot off from 50%

Thank goodness Curry … keep that kid out of the media. You can tell it's already fucking with her head.

I might be wrong, but I assume a bit more common sense from Mr. Curry as compared to AI.

Dubs have too much depth for the Cavs to handle. We saw LeBron tire out against the Hawks, and that's a worse defensive team.

The small ball comes out late game when the other team is already gassed. They punish you in the passing lanes, deny post-entry passes, and encourage your tired body to jack up long 2s, where size doesn't matter as much when rebounding.

That said, the Cavs were just 1 shot away from winning game 1. Even if they did, the Warriors are built for a long series.

I think LeBron took too many fadeaways. He had almost as many 3s attempted as FTs attempted. If he's going to carry his team on offense, he needs to attack the rim and get FTs.

His jumper was actually going in more than I expected last night but that's clearly not his strength. I'm not sure his body can take the banging of attacking the rim four straight games -- especially with what GSW can throw at him.
