    I said Dame because he can literally do every shot. But that was not without thinking hard about that (I almost went Steph... I love him and his game)

    Whew...... lucky the team we are playing next is “trash” and will be “lucky to make the playoffs”
    Imagine if we had to play a good team after tonight’s loss.

    The Warriors are a Lebron away from being pretty good.

    We continually play worse when teams are missing key players - Rubio tonight, Wall and Washington, Spurs and Leonard, Pelicans and Davis, Celtics without Kyrie - it goes on and on.

    You're right. Since they are "trash" anyhow, we should blow them out even if all their players play and Dame an CJ sit, right? :cheers:

    Ya, we're gonna get killed on national TV. Half our dudes are prolly already mentally in Cancun/Carribean/etc. We're gonna get slaughtered.

    Why is Collins still getting regular minutes? Is he our new Vonleh-- getting minutes by default because of draft position? He's been trash out there on both ends. Bench his ass and play Meyers.

    I chose Dame. I think Stehg might hit a few more outsiders, but has no chance of stopping Lillards drives.

    Well, hopefully the Blazers will be angry after last nights loss and bring some intensity because Wednesday is going to be hard. And the Warriors always seem their best against us. I doubt they rest anyone. It would be a great win for the Blazers before all star weekend.

    Steph's handles and ability to finish around the rim are light-years ahead of Dame's. IMO, Steph would score at will.

    Thats where we will have to disagree. I think Dame has way better side to side jerk moves that would land Curry on his ass half the time. I think Steph is quicker, but thats just at sprinting to the hoop. When it comes to side to side jukes, I think Dame has him beat and Curry would commit too many fouls.

    I am a homer on this though and dont watch a ton of GSW games anymore. As a matter of fact, I dont really watch them at all anymore other than when they face us.

    Dame hater.....;)

    Wish our team can execute and beat them. The last game was a bit of a stun loss.

    you can beat GSW in regular season, but in the playoffs... this could be a win, our guys will be motivated cause they play against the champs, but also cause of the embarrassing game they played against UTA... only thing Im worried about is that piece of shit Zaza Pachulia

    look at how he tried to injure PG13

    Has there ever been a triple-digit loss? Can we be the first?

    No, the worst ever Blowout was on December 17th, 1991. The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Miami Heat 148-80...68 points.
