Should stop playing him all together.


I agree. He's a liability out there.

My optimistic side is telling me that we can still win this series. But realistically, probably not. We have no one that can guard Durant 1v1 and we would have to win 4 out of the next 5 games.

I can still hope though, right? :(


I guess I was wrong, in the best way possible. This series is up for grabs now.

I was absolutely wrong as well. I see what MDA is trying to do here. We need more bodys against the Warriors and sometimes we see Tuck and Shump together on the court for solely defensive purposes. The Warriors are having much harder time running switch isos through KD because essentially we are forcing them to take Tuck or Shump under those circumstances. If KD gets a favorite matchup, we have one those to help float for double coverage depending on how the matchups are assigned.

If those two can give us any buckets, it's only a plus since the Rockets offense have been nothing but Harden, Paul and Gordon.

Yeah I've noticed that Shump and Tuck do fairly well against KD, better than anyone else on the team. As long as they don't jack up too many shots on offense (which they normally don't), then we'll be okay, at least for short stretches in Shump's case, Tuck could probably play all game and get 10-12 pts on open shots.

MDA's rotations have impressed me this series, and I like the fact that he took out Gerald Green very quickly after he took 2 straight bone-headed shots in game 3. Every possession is important against the Warriors, Green really shouldn't be playing in this series at all.

Like I said, high level gamesmanship.

Big game tonight. Of course it doesn't start until half of our population is asleep.

I once questioned if Craig Ackerman understood that it's okay, expected even, for local announcers to be partial to the home team.
I will never make that mistake again.

Capela needs to play better. He's getting owned by Draymond.

He could always poke him in the eye or kick his taint, I hear that works.
We watched the tragedy unfold. We did as we were told, we bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth...but then it was over.

No one's running back and they have given up a bunch of buckets in a hurry. Not a good start. Need to gather their composure quick.
