  This is ugly to watch.....89-89   6:00 to go

Nobody uses a center..everybody takes bad shots (because they can make them) and all the shooters pretend they're being fouled to fool the refs..

 

Steph isnt 100%.....not as quick as he normally is.

..and where is Clint Capella....4 points and 6 rebounds...??

This is Houston's chance to get HCA and put huge pressure on the Warriors.

Houston is playing key minutes with basically 5 guards..

So odd to watch.

 

I guess they're saying..we're going small on Durant and Capella isn't playing today

Whoever wins this game has a huge advantage moving forward. It has been a war.

At Golden St he shouldn't. He needs to earn it. They had their chance today, Warriors in 6 now.

Clint Capella gets $20 mil a year...(sorry 5 years 90 mil) ..26 minutes..4 points...6 rebounds..

..and he's riding the bench when it counts.

 

Money well spent

There's Golden State calls and there's 'everybody else' calls?

Okay. If those are the rules, then it will be interesting when they get back to Houston

IMO, the best teams I have ever seen are the 1987 Lakers #1 = Magic, Kareem, Worthy, and Scott. 1996 Bulls #2 = Jordan, Pippen, Rodman, and Kukoc. 1986 Celtics #3 = Bird, McHale, Parish, and DJ. 2001 Lakers #4 = Kobe, Shaq, Horry, and Fish. These Warriors belong in that group with Durant, Curry, Klay, and Green if they win it all again. It would be neat to see them lose but I cant root for a flopper like Harden or a softy like CP3.

I don't like the way eitehr one of these teams plays the game...I guess I've said that before...

What Harden does to draw fouls is exactly what Steph does.

..and both teams have popularized distance shooting as a team cure-all

 

..and nobody can cheer for Draymond Green

 

I'm guessing you will hear a lot about the officiating in this series. A lot.

I am not a Warriors fan but I love the way they play team basketball. Their passing is brillant and they get everyone involved. I am just not a James Harden fan the way he flops. CP3 always chokes in the playoffs too.

The way Golden State plays is the opposite of what I know as basketball

They try to take bad shots. they set screens going away from the basket to take advantage of their distance shooting ability.  Steph jumps into the defender ALL the time.

Exactly what Harden does.

Fouls that would not have been called in any other era. I just think that's a cowardly way to play the game. If you are real, you don't fly into the defender and flop...

And Draymond is just Draymond. Constant whining....Cheap shots and missed 3s T-fouls

 

We will have to disagree on this one.

I think the Golden State Warriors have hurt the sport...

The cancer of the 3-ball (which they started because they have great shooters) infects everyone and now high school teams take 30-40 3s a game...

 Just not my style

Yeah I disagree but that is fine. As a short guy myself I love shooting the 3 in highschool and thought people falling in love with someone dunking sucked. Yeah who can't dunk if you are 7'0. Also guys that can't shoot FT's are an embarrassment to the game IMO. In highschool I could make 85 out of 100 and never played college = 85%. Curry plays nothing like Harden IMO. Curry doesn't throw his body into players near as much as Harden does to create contact to get a call. He doesn't flop near as much either. Curry creates better off the dribble and just gets open to shoot. Harden gets more calls than Michael Jordan and a lot of them are nonsense, JMO. You have your opinion and I have mine.

You have to watch Steph closer..

He falls on every other shot and he always jumps into the defender.

he's not alone but he most certainly does do it

And why not? He gets 3 shots if he fools the refs.  Dont trust me for a second.

Go back and look at any game

 

Im old school. The fundamentals of the game...dribble, pass shoot all conspire to get high percentage shots

   Not step back, fall away 3s....Shooting is great. But I dont think you are great because you master one aspect if the game..

The women's game is better. They actually try to get to the basket.

I am for moving the 3-point line back 3-5 feet.

It would bring fundamentals  back into the sport

If you are Damean Lillard and you walk into a 37-footer to win a  game....Thats great basketball?.

It wins but  I just dont think so

I respect that, I loved the Lakers in the 80's because they played inside out. Magic always believed going to Kareem or Worthy 1st to open everything up for the shooters in the half court game. Scott always burned teams with the 3 though. I see both sides of it. If you have a player like Shaq, he will always be the 1st option over Kobe for a 3 too.

The Rockets outscored the Warriors by 20 from 3 point range.. but the Warriors had about 20 more shot attempts. Offensive rebounding for the Warriors was huge.

 

Rockets def just stupidly bomb away from 3.. no screens like the warriors set. The just iso and dish from stupid range. They are going to get beat by a team that has better 3 point shooters.. but aren't has much in love with them.

Toronto 101, 76ers 96...….series tied 2-2...…...Phily let this get away

Marc Gasol 16, Joel Embid 11..That cant happen

 

Kawhi Leonard 39 points..

 

I have been surprised about how little Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris can do about Kawhi. He's scored 30 or more in every game so far

The NBA is not the game for you.

I'm similar.  I quit watching the NBA 6-8 years ago.    To much flash and show and not enough basketball.

I'm reading more about the possibilities of the Pacers acquiring Mike Conley.

I dismissed it before but its not farfetched.

 

Conley, who is 30 years old..averages 21 points a game and he is an excellent defender.  Memphis isn't a playoff team and they want to move him

His contract is ridiculous but there's only 2 years left on it..

.at $32 mil and $34 mi

 

Why is he better than Kemba Walker?  Offensively, he's not.

To get Kemba, we must pay the max:  $35 mil for 4 years...the same as Conley but for 2 more years

 

And we're a defensive minded team......Mike Conley is a strong defender.….Plus Conley may actually want to come to Indianapolis …..we all know. Big high school star. Lawrence North.

 

The only knock is We'd probably have to give up our No.1 pick for Conley

I would be happy with Conley but it depends on who we would have to give up. He has some age on him but still is better than Collison.

Boston has been very disappointing.

They're missing wide open shots.....I guess that happens in the playoffs.

I just wish it had happened 3 weeks earlier

 

Kyrie doesnt know what's happening out there

    • NFL.com's Profile   Draft Grade: 5.30 NFL BACKUP OR SPECIAL TEAMS POTENTIAL Draft Projection: Round 5 College: Mich St Position: S Height: 5-11 Weight: 213 40 Time: 4.52     BIO: Willis was named the Ann Arbor News Michigan High School Player of the Year in 2014 as a running back after he covered nearly 3,000 yards on the ground and scored 31 touchdowns. He didn't end up at Ann Arbor for college, signing with Sparty. Willis started 3 of 9 games played as a true freshman (11 tackles), but his season ended before the Big Ten Championship Game due to a broken foot. He started one game in 2016, making 30 tackles in 11 contests overall. An opening occurred in MSU's secondary for 2017, and Willis took advantage. He garnered honorable mention All-Big Ten honors that season, accumulating 71 tackles, 5.5 for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, and three pass breakups. He repeated his honorable mention all-conference performance as a senior, posting 84 tackles, two interceptions, and 10 pass breakups in 13 starts for the Spartans.   Overview: Team leader known for his leadership and work ethic, Willis has been a reliable performer with a good nose for the football. However, he's an average athlete with below-average speed who needs to keep plays in front of him, so finding a roster spot on the next level could be a challenge. His high football character and consistent effort level, give him a shot at finding work as a backup with special teams value .   Strengths: Praised for exceptional character Good size with compact build and desired play strength Plays with consistent motor and effort all game long Runs the alley with accurate map to the ball carrier Reliable and plays under control Reads quarterback's eyes for early indicators in coverage Sees the entire field from deep safety Handled some slot cover duties in sub-packages Good awareness from short zone and responds quickly to throws   Weaknesses: Below-average athlete lacking explosiveness Top-end speed is a concern Struggles to range over the top from deep zone Slow to open hips and sprint with early speed Tight strider with below-average burst to close Limited lateral agility to maintain man coverage Very modest ball production    
    • 1. Again that is how people view QBs rather that is fair or not   2. Im referring more from a talent perspective   3. Its more to justify Luck as a talent.
    • I like that there's evidently a clear plan for developing and using him, and I think that's true for everyone they added this year. We'll see how it plays out, but I expect that they'll be trying to put guys in position to excel, not trying to force them to do something they aren't good at.   I think this shows with the Funchess signing. Definitely not my favorite acquisition, and I wanted them to go in a different direction, but Warren Sharp posted splits showing how Funchess performed on certain routes, and compared it with how Luck produces when throwing to those routes. It seems like an ideal match for our offense, and I think the front office and coaching staff identified that together, and went out and got him. I don't think they'll ask him to be a downfield burner, I think they're going to use him on curls, outs, and maybe slants, and I think it's going to add a dimension to the offense, especially on big downs when defenses play tight man coverage.    If they took a similar approach with the players they drafted -- what's the plan for this guy on our team, and how do we develop his traits so that he can excel in this role? -- it will show in the way they use them right away. Tell, Campbell, Willis, Banogu... all have traits that can be tapped into right away.
    • So I'm a little confused now. Are you basing your views on the roster that the QB is playing with instead of the QB himself? I don't see how you can say the AFC championship game on only had "3 great players."    If you ask me has Luck done more with less then some other QB's then that answer is 100% yes. But your question is How do you view Andrew without a championship?       Not how Andrew Luck will be viewed because he doesn't have great teams around him.
    • 1. If my aunt had a set, she'd be my uncle.  Marino didn't win 6 so who cares?   2. The larger point is I am lost on your arm talent argument.  Who cares who had the best arm?  That is only one small component of what makes an elite level QB.  Greg Maddux is a HoF pitcher and he had not close to the velocity of Kyle Farnsworth, who can only get into the HoF if he bought a ticket.  In an NFL comparison, Joe Montana did not have near the arm that Marino or Elway did but he is clearly among the best QB's ever to play the game. 3. I don't care about the Colts 2014 roster.  I know who was on the team and I don't think they would have been a good match up for the 1970 Steelers. I am simply saying that you don't really know if it was the worst roster to make the AFCCG in history.  It's over an over the top argument simply made to prove a point you can't make otherwise.
