Torrey Craig could have been injured in game 2 against Dallas.

We will have to check his injury status tomorrow. He reportedly has a right elbow contusion.

Cam Payne simply cannot be allowed to play 15 min and produce ZERO points! If it’s obvious he is off with him it’s pretty quick to tell, Holiday simply has to get some time. Monty is be stubborn with his rotation to a detriment at this point! Allowing lots of time to go by when we are doing nothing offensively is absurd as well, call a TO moron and bring in different shooter and see if anyone can get going? To just let them play themselves into a huge hole is stupidity! We score twice in a row boom TO to stop the damn MO it’s coaching 101 and Monty kills us repeatedly with his stubbornness!

Yeah at the time I didn’t think it was dirty until the replay showed chriss purposefully moves into Craig’s legs. I’m surprised it wasn’t reviewed or some comment didn’t follow from the league.

I guess it could be viewed as a dirty play but Chriss didn't pull his body out from underneath Craig.

I think Chriss was going up for a shot but then thought better of it with Craig flying over the top. His immediate reaction was to check on Craig.

Maybe not dirty, but if I was Steve Kerr I’d be throwing the code around.

It's undecided if Torrey Craig will play in game 4.

I've seen plenty of guys intentionally commit a dirty play, then camouflage it by checking on the guy or acting like it was unintentional. That's dirty play 101.

I didn't think it was a dirty play.

It looked like Chriss had grabbed the rebound and was going up for a shot but stopped short of doing so because Craig came over the top.

Chriss didn't try to move his body out of the way which partially helped cushion the fall.

Watch it again. He actually moves under Craig when he’s up in the air. I don’t think it was dirty, but I was surprised it wasn’t reviewed.

I've watched it numerous times. I thought Chriss was going to score on the other side of the rim and gave a pump fake on the play because Craig was coming hard.

The decider for me is Chriss didn't take his body out of the play and his first thought was about Craig. He could have gone ahead and tried to score but didn't.

I have to admit I’m slightly nervous about this game because losing would mean the season comes down to game 5 at home and all the pressure would be on us.

Let's beat Dallas on Sunday and Tuesday and then talk about what a nice series it was.

All the pressure is on Dallas on Sunday.
