  2. Sure, why not.

    15.7%
  4. No, we need his scoring punch off the bench.

    47.1%
  5. No, he makes our starting unit too small.

    This was our chance to go on a run, with their bench in. Instead Quinn fucking Cook owns us

    We don't play a defense that gets us transition buckets. That's a huge aspect in scoring to give up. Look what it does for GS even when they aren't shooting well.

    We're missing FTs. That's not Golden State, that's us.

    Dame needs to work on a mid-range game this offseason.

    We have shot 9 more free throws than the Warriors and only have two more makes.

    If Stotts had any balls he'd bench Lillard and if Lillard had any self respect, he'd understand.

    If you have a cure for a team that is fucking scared of it's opponent, I'm all ears. We've been pissing our pants against this team in the playoffs for years.

    That will be interesting to keep an eye on. That last 7 minutes of game 2 GSW didn't get called for any fouls.

    Agreed. But it's the same Dame we've seen the last two.

    This is why you don't let Dame guard Steph or Klay in the first half. Burned out

    Yeah they would lol Jokic would’ve fouled out every game because Golden State gets any and every benefit.

    Unfortunately he won't do that, Dame is his bread and butter. Live and die by Dame, part of our problem...

    This is my theory, too. He just looks exhausted. After all, he carried us through the regular season, not to mention the entire first round.
