Horrendous officiating. Preemptive Technicals?

Clippers weren't winning this game with Curry's game tonight, so good to get the nerves out for the young guys. Shamet made some nice plays in the second have and Shai keeps asserting himself. Now Gallo has to start getting off. This is a tough matchup for him because they can run a bunch of guys at him (Durant, Green, Iggy) who can neutralize the advantages that he usually has as a skilled big. I don't think they can win a game in this series if he isn't excellent, or they don't get a huge night from an unexpected source like Shamet or Shai.

On paper, they have little chance in this series, but Rivers has been a mastermind the last two seasons. I think they'll compete every game.

I do agree with you on Gallinari. They need to get him more catch and shoot opportunities, and I don't mind ISO's on the baseline for him. I don't like his ball handling ability in traffic, especially against this team.

Who am I to question Rivers, but isn't it time to roll Harrell out with the starters? He's a match-up nightmare for Cousins and Green. Use his energy from the start. Set the tone. Build a lead. Make them play hard, physical defense.

Zubac is a waste of time. He's big and wide, sometimes rebounds fall into his hands. Speaking of hands, does he ever keep them up? He has almost zero basketball instincts. He relies exclusively on size. Boban was better, and I'm not a fan.

I don't get too wrapped up in awards, but The Sixth Man of the Year Award is especially puzzling to me.
Andre Iguodala, all aspects of the game considered, has been the best Sixth man in the league the last five years.

My theory on that is that Doc wants him in the pick and roll with Lou to get him going, and Lou doesn't like to start. It will be interesting to see what happens in the future, since he and Gallo both have one year left on their contracts and Harrell is part of a long-term plan and Gallo is a question mark. I love Gallo, but he might be the perfect sell-high prospect this summer. He's healthier than he's been in years and he showed his value.

It's a weird award. Lou is effectively a starter with the way he's used and the roll he has. It's like a nickle corner.....

I really don't think that's the case there. Early on he flexed, but I think Brown got through to him, and he seems to understand he's just a part of a team.

Golden State the only team to hold their home court advantage today.

Jokic is often times too unselfish, IMO. He had another triple-double, but he only took 9 shots, and only 2 FT attempts. They need him to score. White outplayed Murray. Torrey Craig (who I really like) was the only Denver player to make more than one three pointer.

Jokic and Millsap need more than 9 FGA's for that team to succeed.

On the other hand, they played the Spurs. Popovich is still the boss of Malone.

Pretty interesting day one of the playoffs.

I can't see Lou playing the nickle, but I bet he would be a great slot WR.

386 Playoff 3s for Curry to break Ray Allen's record of 385.

Ray did it in 171 games.

Steph did it in 91...

Come on, he's been on bad teams. I'm trying to remember the last time he was on a good team.

I absolutely think he acted like a fool here, but more of the blame should be on coach and management for allowing it to happen.

He's an amazing basketball player, in addition to his long range marksmanship. He really has improved at everything.

I think he has changed the game at all levels. Young kids realizing shooting is important, handles and crossovers without the finish are useless. Work on your shot. The young people have always been wowed by the athleticism of NBA players. I can't think of another player that plays below the rim that has impacted the game for the next generations like Curry has.

It's also pretty cool that you don't hear anything negative about him outside the court.

I think Curry has had even a bigger impact on Basketball in general perhaps since Lew Alcindor inspired the no dunking rule in College basketball.

If most of us who played basketball at almost ANY level of Basketball would’ve come out and thrown up a constant barrage of 23-30 foot jump shots our old school coaches would’ve banished us to the deep bench.

Amazing how he’s brought the deep shot into the main stream.

Brook Lopez was such a great pickup for the Bucks.

He provides so much gravity on offense (Six 3PAs at 37%), he blocks shots and provides valuable size next to Giannis.

He still doesn't rebound, but he boxes out - and they're still the best rebounding team in the league.

Thank you. I see it high school all the time. A guy 'breaks somebody's ankles' and then bricks the shot or dribbles it off his foot going to the basket. All the high school kids in the stands ooh and aah. I'm like "He didn't score, who cares".

My favorite is the guy who passes up the open 10 footer, bust out his crossover and ends up taking a slightly more open 14 footer...

Holy crap what a game the Clippers just played.

I’m quite sure it is probably just a speed bump for the Warriors, but what a fantastic job by Doc Rivers and his guys.

Lou Williams just balled out...

Williams is simply unstoppable at times. How about the night Harrell had? Didn't miss a shot and a big rebounding night as well.

Loved it.

I really hope the Warriors lose this year. They’ve acted like a bunch of babies for the last half of the year. Their performance at the Target Center was embarrassing.

Crazy end to the Spurs/Nuggs game.

Jamal Murray scores a total of 20 points on 25% shooting through the first 7 quarters of the series - including 0/8 through 3 tonight. Then somehow goes 8/8 for 21 points in the 4th quarter.
