2015-2016 NBA Regular Season - MDA to HOU - All-NBA - Harden snubbed - Anthony Davis is broke - Page 2145

Warriors confidence/swag is really off the charts right now. Never rattled and always look like they know they can win. Like the Jordan Bulls and Shaq/Kobe Lakers. That's part of why it's going to be real hard for any team to beat them in a series.

Lol how far was Lillard shooting from though? And was they down 3 and they knew Lillard needed a 3

Some other things to think about
post #64323 of 93193

So, the person that has contributed the most to your team makes a few mistakes at the end of the game is the blame for your misfortunes?

 

KD cost them the game? 

 

Like step back and think about that for a second.

 

KD cost them the GAME (48 mins). Ignore everything he did for the first 46 mins.

 

Come on fellas. Stop acting like the media

Lawdog bro I don't remember the last time I was worried watching a game hahaha

Only thing OKC can do is cheap shot Steph. Have a bum off the bench throw a nice elbow at him in the 1st quarter. Nothing serious just something to make him feel it for that game.

Everything he did the first 46 mins, he was expected and get paid to do. Not only did he not fully deliver but his actions cost his team the win. Yes he deserve all the blame and more. Im sure he feels better from all the wine he drank last night but I rather have my franchise player putting up shots or working out in the gym to feel better. But that just me.

Son rolled his ankle and came back making everything. Cheap shots don't do anything but put more points on the board

1. You have to stop looking at team sports like that man. That is what the media does. Blame one person. No one person should be blamed man. It is a TEAM sports.

 

My question would be why didn't Billy Donovan call a time out when he say KD in trouble inbounding the ball? That was more disturbing than anything. 

 

2. What are you even talking about you would rather have your franchise player working out in the gym to feel better. You took his wine comment serious? LOL

Crazy that Spurs may well win 65 games this year and nobody outside of San Antonio is going to care because of what the Warriors are doing.

He wasn't Inbounding the ball. He got trapped on the baseline.

I meant that, same thing though. I would like to have saw Donovan call a TO in that situation. They had 1 left. That shocked me more than anything.

post #64333 of 93193
So y'all gonna keep blaming Roberson like picking up Steph at half court with 4 seconds left is a great idea? No defense was set, that's entirely too much time and entirely too far from the bucket to press someone with that type of quickness and handle. Even lightly. Sure he could have but that goes against pretty much everything you're taught. Curry is REALLY great and REALLY efficient taking REALLY bad shots. That's kind of hard to guard in any situation, let alone the one to win the game last night

Durant is just at fault for Donovan for not calling timeout. He's been in the league and played basketball long enough to know. I'm being trapped on the baseline. Let's not chuck the ball up the court and hope someone gets it that is wearing a white
Jersey. Maybe I should scream timeout. He definitely doesn't deserve a pass for that. And just blaming Donovan like its his fault his star player wildly chucked the ball up the court.

There were 2 seconds left at that point when he was crossing half court Sinda.

I agree with this. KD should have called time out just as much as Donovan. (Which I already stated)

 

It was a dumb play by KD.

 

But to blame him for the LOSS of the GAME, no, just no

 

No game comes down to 1 play

He took the shot at 2.8
post #64338 of 93193
Durant did **** up with that pass. You can't throw the ball up for anybody to get it at that point in the game. He shoulda called timeout.


And I still can't get over that horrible shot Billy Donovan gave Durant at the end of the 4th. How do you not get him at the top of key?

Again, Roberson had to make Steph do something other than casually walk up into that shot. That isn't too much to ask for.

 

Make him turn.

Make him do something.

 

You have to know who you are playing against

Billy Donovan really delivered a Scott Brooks special last night.

This is another thing.

 

What happens isn't what is always drawn up. They aren't doing walk-throughs. There is a defense on the court not allowing the offense to get into their sweet spots

post #64342 of 93193
Yeah he could've mugged him and Steph wouldn't have gotten the call. Steph still being disrespected by officials.

It isn't that simple man. You're sitting at home on the couch saying this. Roberson did the right thing.

You are 100% correct. I will not deny that. It is easy for me to SIT here and say what shoud have been done in hindsight.

 

I mean this is what we are all doing whenever we discuss what these dudes do right? Don't use that as a cop out when we are having a legit discussion.

no he didn't. laugh.gif

rule number #1 hat situation is to make the ball handler have to change direction.



Low key Big O was right in that situation, letting steph cuasually walk up was insanely dumb. laugh.gif

What are you talking about??? That was obviously the play. Fake like you are coming up to the top of the key and than hit the short corner or baseline for a turnaround jumper. You could see the way Durant tried to sell it that was the play.

Stop trying to sound sophisticated because you said you are a coach. It's obviously the play.

Read please.

 

I wasn't specifically talking about THAT play here. I was making a general statement.

 

Please read.

So risk him blowing by you for a potential layup, because he had plenty of time to get that far, instead of getting back and force a contested long shot? NO good defender would do that. It just looks bad because curry decided to take an awful shot. Also, I'm assuming he thought there'd be a timeout called. I'm not gonna kill him in that situation. A lot of factors went into play.

Some people in here just sound like they've never played organized basketball in their life, not taking into account score, situation, shot distance, defense not being set, etc etc
