Would have loved to root for the Raptors if Masai didn’t screw us twice in the past and set our franchise back.

GS needs to win this though, just to give KD more reason to leave.

They’re not even using his system lol.

D'antoni's system has always been no one but the point guard touching the ball for the majority of the shot clock.

what I sensed in the first quarter, looked like TO was bringing the intensity right off the bat and they are not letting up so far

means GS really has to turn it up

Because Nash refused to shoot the ball. It's the same offense but Harden is more aggressive on the offensive end when it comes to getting his.

There goes my RJ Barrett for Spicy P trade idea (if we are successful in getting KD and Kyrie/Kemba).

kawhi is fascinating. he doesn't have much wiggle, everybody's favorite term, to get away from double teams but he has infinite patience to find the open shot.

I feel like the Raptors are barely holding off the Warriors yet the Dubs aren't even playing that well and the Raps are playing a very solid game. The Raps need to elevate their game another level to be able to win this series.
