The coach? That was the poorest effort on defense I think I've ever seen.

Nail biter out in Golden State.

Edit: you're kidding me. Draymond hits an off balance prayer at buzzer to put Warriors up 4 points with 40 seconds left.

Edit #2: warriors seal the win

Yes! I really want them to get the record. It was ugly though, really ugly.

What got into Bogut? He put up 19 points in 31 minutes. Haven't seen a scoring explosion from him since his Milwaukee days it's seems.

For those that following betting lines, it was a push at 214 total points.

im waiting for that record to go down so i can then quote my prophetic words. but fuck, will someone atleast put the breaks on this warriors team? im beginning to dislike them because they are too good. turning into a real, no good player hater

this was weird

SBnation OKC 4th quarter stagnation analysis was 100% correct, they have nothing outside of KD and Westbrook. Even when Ibaka is on a roll they cannot capitalise on it.

 

I look forward to getting (even) old(er) and reminiscing about this Warriors team and season, like I've done for so long with the Bulls' second threepeat.

Jalen actually said something similar in a podcast a few days ago. Something along the lines of "Are these teams even trying? These are professional athletes getting paid big money and they seem content to let the Warriors beat them on the way to making history."



Seriously though, I've made my peace with them breaking the record. My only hope is they don't win the chip.....

Before all star break it felt like every warriors game was a playoff game. Now kinda seems listless. OKC just doesn't have the personnel to play ball movement heavy. Ball just ends up in the hands of Roberson or waiters

Look at the league averages for PPG - when Oscar was doing his thing scoring was at an all-time high at 110-118 points per game. League is scoring 102 ppg now. If defense was so great back in the 60's why were teams full of guys who couldn't shoot (and without any 3 pointers) scoring 15% more per game than the league is now? In Oscar's triple double year (61-62), the league took almost 30% more field goals per game than they do now and almost 60% more free throws!! Oh and they were definitely worse at FT shooting too. Oscar's 31/12/11 would look more like 27/9/8 and per 36 minutes would be more like 21/7/6. Still nice, but doesn't have the same ring to it. Steph would have absolutely shredded teams in that era - maybe not 50 ppg like Wilt, but he would have gotten his shots off easily and he wouldn't have been undersized like he is now.

I give Oscar credit for playing 45 mpg (and Wilt averaged over 48 his 50pt season) but come on how hard could the league have played defense if guys were able to play that many minutes? No one in the league has played 40 mpg in the last 6 seasons and only 2 guys have done it in the last 8.

Is this any different from old timers who walked uphill both ways to school?

Oscar's completely wrong about Steph Curry. His scoring would go down a bit just because of there not being a three point line. But defenses then packed the middle. Curry would be unguarded for most of his shots.

A funny misperception about Wilt - you always hear "he never played against anyone his height". But the median starting center his rookie year was 6'9.5", and his last season it was 6'10". The current median is 6'11". So he had a whopping 1.5" advantage.

Weren't a lot of those guys just giant white guys who couldn't really play and weren't athletic? At least today's centers are black, white, and euros who have some athletic ability.
