We could be waiting until players signed this summer are eligible to trade. Not sure when that date is. If that is the case, it could explain Young not getting any pt.

think it's 12/15.

Players who recently signed as free agents or had their two-way contracts converted:​

A player who signs a free agent contract typically becomes trade-eligible either three months after he signs or on December 15, whichever comes later. That means a player who signs on September 22 would become trade-eligible on December 22.

Hornets have a number of players in health and safety protocols.

I noticed the Warriors played the Spurs at home so they didn't have to travel on their back-to-back game.

The Suns and Warriors have identical 19-4 records.

Really crazy game I assume letdown after the 2 Suns matchups. Steph started 1-15, finished 7-28. He hit a 3 to put them up 3, then ticky tack foul call puts SA at the line, Kerr can't decide if he should challenge or not doesn't challenge. Make first brick 2nd, Lee somehow falls down going for rebound it caroms out to White who hits a 3 to put SA up 1. Warriors turn it over.

White just veers right into JTA on a drive they call it a block, Kerr challenges. Everyone who sees it says White caused all the contact but the ref says because JTA was moving he didn't have position so the call is upheld. White splits the FT's SA up 2. Curry goes fast misses a 3, Murray scores SA up 4. Basically that was game.

I thought they should have challenged the first foul, they called it a shooting foul on JTA against Keldon Johnson the replay was pretty blatant the only contact was a bump well before Johnson went into his shooting motion he did a modified Euro Step and then shot the whistle happens on the shot. On replay there's a bump then he goes into his shooting motion and the whistle blows on the release of teh shot. So if the warriors challenge the call of a shooting foul they probably get a reversal I don't think the ref can say it's not a shooting foul but there was a foul before the shot. I think they would have overturned the call Warriors ball up 3 but didn't challenge game over.

Spurs got 4 points in the first 10 minutes of the 4th and 9 in the last 2 to win it.

And now the Warriors fall to the Spurs on the 2nd of a B2B.
Just proves the back to back can be a killer! They caught us tired and without our superstar big deal. I’m almost glad the streak is over relieves some pressure and just let them play good ball again without streak talk! I believe fully healthy this Suns team is the best team in basketball and built for the playoffs with our depth.

Any team can beat another team on a given night. The Suns better be ready to play the Spurs or they await the same fate. Spurs have won four games in a row over good or respectable teams.

I didn't complain about the ref I said Kerr challenged the wrong call. He challenged the one he likely wouldn't win over the one he might have won

Yeah but many of us do, fortunately we have game day threads to get it out of our system.


FWIW the 2 minute review said both calls were correct so whichever one he challenged he wasn't going to win. But if he was going to challenge one of them he should have challenged the first one it was the most likely of the 2 to be overturned
