that's pretty remarkable the Warriors literally got production from 6 guys and won. They only played 8, Bjelica was terrible, Lee made a 3 but was otherwise awful. Poole shot terribly but did have 12.

But the 5 starters put up 95 points 63 rebounds and 20 assists. 22 boards for Looney 16 for Draymond 10 for Wiggins

Guy on Warriors World saying they should trade Wiseman for steven Adams. Contract doesn't work Adams makes way too much but Wiseman would go home and Adams setting screens on the Warriors would be insane.

Adams is not as skilled offensively but like Bogut.

I know it is not logical but statistically Memphis is better without Ja and has been all year. At one point they were 20-2 without him. Obviously that's against non playoff teams too not against the Warriors but it's so obvious watching them without him how much tougher it is for the Warriors to score on them

This series has really shown how good JJJ is and what a solid player Tyus Jones is. his 2 starts with Ja out he has 40 points 14 assists 1 turnover in 65 minutes.
Was really impressed with JJJ. He’s exactly the PF this suns team needs. Obviously they don’t grow on trees.

obviously he and Jones were not good last night but still keys in teh series. If you assume Ziaire Williams will finally be able to stay healthy and will improve the amount of young talent they have is filthy.

Memphis isn't even capped out, which scares me more about what they can become. They'll get there with a Morant extension but they're in good shape financially. They also have a bunch of picks, all of their own and Utah's this year plus Golden State's in 2024. Their GM was well deserving of his Executive of the Year award.

still can't get over Looney last night he's had surgery on both hips, a knee and he's had asthma his whole life. 25 moves like he's 80 and goes for 22 boards against the team that averaged the most rebounds in the NBA this year.
