    what we're seeing is a deeply experienced playoff n championship team with an experienced coach and players who take command and adapt vs. a largely inexperienced team which has a very limited playbook n game plan and has key players who periodically ghost for long periods of time.

    we're hopefully going to learn a lot from this and i hope to god some of it is around playing smart D.

    Huh? I missed something.

    Anyway, I turned the game off. I don't want to remember this season being tarnished by such a lackluster effort. We're a better team than this. But whether it was not getting one of the two games in Oakland or being exhausted or just not having enough ways to get easy buckets to stop runs, we've pretty obviously packed it in. So I am going to just relax and do the same and not let it bother me.

    Dame needs a mid-range game for next year. Zach needs to finish on offense. We need to figure out a way to keep this team pretty much together if we can. I don't think we need to go making some big personnel moves. I think the improvement we need to make can be made within the framework of the current roster.

    Why would any top-name FAs wanna come here? You think they'd want to play for a team that quits?

    Golden State's free throw defense really has impressed me.

    Maybe it’s that Golden State is much better than us and has expended a lot less energy to get here than we did, and thus can play a better game for 48 minutes than we can for 48.

    I give any team starting Meyers Leonard a pass against GSW because if you’re at that point you’ve been through some shit.

    The effort in the second half between tonight and game 2 is really pathetic. We work so hard to build nice leads and then go ahead and just throw it away. Don't get me wrong the Warriors are the superior team, of course, but our play play in the second half is downright sad.

    This game isn’t on Stotts but this team needs a new coach.

    Seems like the players adopted the "Wow, we made it to the WCF! Cool! Lets be proud of our season!" attitude that a lot of fans have.
