    Sick photoshop of the lineups!

    It was a tough choice for me between Nurkic and Turner on the poll question. I went with Nurk just because his spin moves are quick for a big man. Turner seems like he's the one who's most comfortable/in control off of a spin. McCollum would be third.

    Not a tough choice. Turner always gets blocked when he goes for the spinna

    I picked other. Olshey is clearly the Blazers' king of spin.

    It's a minor miracle that Turner doesn't Turner-over the ball every time he dribbles inside the 3-point arc. Harkless has the best spin on the team. Granted, it's usually not off the dribble, but when he catches a pass deep in the post you can pretty much count on that quick spin of his tallying 2 points.

    That was my thought as well. He's quick with the spin if he is in the paint and it usually results in points.

    At what point does Draymond Greens "celebrating" become taunting worthy of a technical foul?

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Generally when it's directly aimed at an opposing player. Flexing/screaming = okay. Getting in someone's face and pointing at them = probably a technical foul.

    When Mutombo used to shake his finger at someone who's shot he blocked, it drew technical fouls. So he changed it to shake his finger generally at the crowd.

    The way they stepped up in the 4th indicates we need Nurk. Nurk Now. If NOT, Turner, Harkless and Crabbe have to score and Vonleh needs to answer DG's defensive efforts.

    Nurk does so much of the same stuff for us that Draymond does for GS.
