  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

Iguodola is so valuable..34 minutes..14 points...4 rebounds and good defense

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.

GAME 5: Toronto 125   76ers 89

 

Toronto leads 3-2... 76ers seemed to quit.

Embid - 13 points, 8 turnovers...doesn't seem to want to be there

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

    • IR. PUP. Starts Wk 1.    That's covered it. 
    • Multiple times I have said the length of the deal would be the issue...like probably in four different posts in this thread. But I think there are people who would even be against paying a RB (like Zeke) that much money for 1-2 years...or wouldn't even give up a late pick for him.    I brought up Funchess because signing Zeke would be akin to signing a Funchess each offseason for a few years. From a financial standpoint...that's not unreasonable. The picks are a different discussion...but Zeke is also on a completely different level...and there is going to be an acquisition cost to getting a player like that.    The bit about Mack was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. The rest of my comment isn't meant to be an attack or even a generalization...it's just an observation about what I have seen in many fans the past year (the Mack situation actually predated a lot of this).   There seems to be a theme...that when a talented non-Colts player vet is mentioned as a possibility to acquire (who would have a cost attached)...there are many that are either dismissive or against it...to the point that late round picks are too much to give up. I think that happens more often than people ignoring the acquisition cost and saying "gimme, gimme." (To be fair...I think saying people "routinely" ignore the acquisition cost is as much of an unfair representation or generalization as what I said...just on the opposite spectrum).   I respect your opinion...and we actually agree on many things (including aspects of roster construction)...I just think I must be in the minority when it comes to taking 'big swings' around here.
    • So here we are again, bunches of cap money, hoping our draft picks are as good as last year, but sweating our QB issue.     How many draft picks are we gonna horde?   How much cap space are we gonna bank?   I realize this deal with Zeke might be just a rumor and forum fodder, but if we have a chance to bring him in, I say yes.  As I, and many other members have said many times, we have a QB that can win a super bowl, but so far we have wasted the opportunity because we lack that 1 player that completes the puzzle.     Andrew has suffered more pain playing on our team then any other Colt's player that I can recall,  I say again, it's time to loosen the purse strings and sign some proven talent to give him a fighting chance.
    • I don't look for him to do much at DT. He played really limited snaps on the interior, really only when they game was far out of hand. Much like here in Indy, there were much better guys on that interior at Ohio State. Tyquan didn't get many "meaningful" snaps inside. Even now he's going to get limited snaps inside because Autry, Hunt, and Ward as just better interior players. I still think he would be a good, cheap replacement, for Sheard, if they got him back down in the 260's. He's good against the run and may get a handful of sacks a year against average RT's. I still scratch my head on why they insist on doing what they are doing with him now.     Yea that's not the story. Him and J Bosa were the starting DE's until they left. Hubbard eventually took over for Bosa when he left and Chase was still sitting behind Tyquan, Nick, and Sam. Chase will be a stud though and I have no doubts he'll be a top-10 pick next year barring injury. 6-5 265 with stupid athleticism, and is equally as good against the run as he is rushing the passer.   Maybe they were thinking Tyquan could turn into a Michael Bennett-type, who can bounce inside and outside on the fly, but I just don't see him being that kind of guy. He wasn't overly athletic at 260'ish, so he's definitely going be hindered with another 10-15-20lbs.
    • Cards lost 5-3 in a rain out called after the top of the 8th. Cubs back in 1st place after tonight. NL Central standings heading into August 22nd are:   Cubs 68-58 Cards 67-58 (.5 back) Brewers 65-62 (3.5 back)   Here's a question to Cards fans, @Jay Kirk , @Barry Sears, and @Myles, what do you guys think about important games being called after the bottom of the 5th of games? This was called in the bottom of the 8th. In the playoffs it is different, if a game is called because of weather, the 2 teams resume the next day where it left off. Having said that the regular season is different, thoughts?
