    So the players have no autonomy or responsibility? That's bullshit. I know you and others want to be able to blame one person but that's just ridiculous.

    Curry could cook us for 50 in his sleep but he passes the ball and runs an offense.

    57-33 in the second half. Completely fucking unacceptable

    Nice season for the Blazers but i prolly will not even watch game 4 -- everyone with blame X but the truth is i think the grind of the playoffs got to this team and this was new to them. They fought like champions the 1st 2 series but it caught up with them plus i think Kanter between his injury and the fasting and no nurk finally caught up with them. Also i will give credit to the Warriors for there defense but if i am being honest the refs seemed to eat whistles on driving portland plays way more then when the warriors did but i am not blaming it all on the refs but they did not help.

    To me, this loss has been more disappointing than game 2 because this is the first home game of the series. It's clearly understood that this team is intimidated to play in Golden State. But to be at home, played well enough for a double-digit lead in the 1st half only to COMPLETELY go away from what worked in the 1st half is unacceptable to me. This falls on Dame, CJ, and Stotts. This team lacks mental fortitude.

    I get it, the Warriors are just a much better team than us. A much better-coached team if you will. Our star players got a lot of soul-searching to do in the offseason.

    Totally pathetic. Whole team gave up but Dame and CJ especially deserve to be lambasted mercilessly for that mental breakdown.

    This was not the Warriors taking it from us like Game 2. This was flat out quitting in the third quarter.

    Its ok. It was fun to get this far. Probably shouldnt even be here without Nurkic and Enes with one arm.

    Pussies. Get the fuck out of those jerseys. I'm ashamed of this team these last two games. I thought they'd turned a corner this year but it's the same old shit.

    Dame needs
    Dame needs to mature. Just like last year just trap him with a double and he can’t pass out of it.

    This one surprised me. I really thought we'd get this one.

    Just not quite on that level

    68-37 in the last two 3rd quarters. One coach appear to be getting his team motivated at halftime...the other, not so much
