Blowouts galore in these playoffs. Definitely sucks.

Uh why even make this argument? To try to make yourself feel better? They got absolutely asswhomped and quit. Fluke or not, they quit. That game counts. It’s emblazoned on everyone’s minds as the last “performance” of the “great” team. If it makes you feel better to call it a fluke go ahead, but you are the way you play, so that game 7 is a part of their portfolio. And given what it represented, an epic failure and their ticket to go fishing, it’s unfortunately a large segment of their portfolio.
Who said it doesn’t count? Who said it wasn’t an ass whoopin? Who said it’s not part of their portfolio? Absolutely all of that can be true.

As the local twitter guy said Sunday night, Porter is doubtful for tonights game. sounds like they're hopeful he can play in a game 5 if there is one.

Again the left foot is the one he had massive issues with in Chicago had a fracture that was one of those hairline fractures that just wouldn't heal correctly.

Otto Porter officially out tonight
Y’all don’t need him to sweep this trash heap into the bin.

And you’ll prob get a week of rest for him as the Heat and Celtics beat the crap out of each other.

I would hope we can win 1 more game without him more concerned about the next round. It is a problem though with Payton out too. Lee was unplayable the last 2 games. JTA was bad and nearly started a fight with Luka. Kuminga very talented but just not ready for this level in the playoffs. That's why Kerr has gone to Moody the last 2 games he's not doing anything special he's just not making mistakes.

It's pretty clear Iggy's not going to be back anytime soon if at all this year so the list of playable guys off the bench is getting small.

Reading online that Steve Kerr is actually asking the NBA to postpone tonights game because it's in Texas. he apparently said after the buffalo shooting his guys told him if they had a game that day or the next they would have unanimously voted to boycott the game.

My guess is they will still play the game and I'll probably watch just to take my mind off the shooting.

Luka switches on to Steph, Steph goes by him to his left, Luka sticks out his knee and tries to trip Steph again. It's not a coincidence ref he's doing it on purpose

I’m actually happy we lost the last round. GS would have annihilated us in 5 games Max and woulda been jawing at us the whole time.

The Warriors don’t seem very serious about closing this game out tonight

They said Klay was upset about going out. Well maybe if he would make a shot
