    Warriors had four all-stars, but struggle with Curry out. Durant is doing all he can. My conclusion: Curry and Durant are the only true all-stars on the team. The other two are good players made better by playing with a great one.

    A team with three TRUE all stars should not struggle.

    Well in their defense they played 3 games in 4 nights against the Spurs, Blazers, and Wolves. The last two were on the road. They are also missing 4 other rotation players (Bell, Iggy, McCaw, and West) other than Curry so I think they deserve a little bit of slack. Klay also sprained his thumb in their last game.

    They've gone from a team with three stars to one star. They have George Hill and Nance instead of Kyrie and Love. Let's see how they play with Love back.

    Wow, Aldridge isn't playing tonight. If SA somehow wins, then the Rockets (and TT) are garbage.

    I'd like to see our Blazers face the Spurs in the 1st round. Make it happen!

    I want to see the Spurs miss the playoffs entirely. I want the LMA era to be the worst in decades.

    I want to face OKC. There would be nothing sweeter than knocking out Melo and PG13.

    Brandon Jennings has 11 points 9 assists and 6 rebounds in 13 minutes of play off the bench! Wowza.

    Jazz have won 11 straight on the road, that is amazing. They may get to 4th seed.

    Man I'm so glad we get to play Memphis twice more. Dallas too.
