    We could walk off the fucking floor at the start of the 3rd and youd still say things like this.

    Lucked out? We had to play a former MVP AND a current MVP candidate in the first round, then we had to play the best homecourt advantage in the NBA with emerging superstars and a good coach, and now we are playing the team that has only won 3 of the last 4 championships.

    there is that...

    i can just imagine him going to GSW or Spurs for a cheap contract and turning into what he should have always been for us and taking it out on us everytime we play him.

    Our offense is embarrassing for entire quarters at a time.

    Hahaha I love how people twist context to try to make it sound like beating Westbrook was more impressive than it was.

    They never did. We were lucky to get here. Had the right path align for us.

    Yeah he seems to like when the defense is set. He almost always waits for the double before making a move...

    Well... here we are down 0-3. Glad we made it this far but feel we need to work really hard in the offseason from GM down to 15th player

    Let’s not forget the narrative going into the playoffs, we were first round fodder.

    No... He wouldve made it 10x worse lmao.

    He disappears in big games. He's quit in us before.

    We need a Montrezl Harrel type.

    I feel like he is waiting for Aminu and Harkless to cut deeper but they stay perched at the top of the key.

    Why am I still here? I'm putting more heart into this game even after it's over than our team did after halftime.

    I will not take all the blame from Dame but let's be honest for just a minute -- look at the team around him.

    CJ -- Good but for some reason cannot make a FT to save his friggin life at times
    Hark -- Solid but semi injury prone and might as well be a magician cause he disappears out there way too much
    Aminu -- lesser version of Hark in terms of vanishing but again he seems like a 6th man type player
    Nurk -- Good but a tad inconsistent but worth keeping since his D is getting better

    the 1st 4 was the best part now let's get to the rest

    Myers -- He shows up once in a blue moon but lacks a good court IQ still plays like a rookie at time way too much
    Collins -- Has a good future but i wonder if it's time to let him get 10 to 15 touches a game and let him sink or swim cause if he can mature and get real minutes he might be a real 3rd option type player
    Curry - good shooter plays better D then i thought but he is gone via FA prolly so -- Good luck on his next contract
    Turner -- If we are lucky some team who wants vet leadership will want him IF not were screwed -- thanks NeO
    Kanter -- Solid offense / sucks on D and good rebounder but like Seth he is a FA and wish him the best -- but i would love to find a way to keep him but not likely
    Hood -- Should be re-signed slid into Turners role and a solid defender and pretty good shooter -- Blazers have a shot to re-sign him but he might have played his way into a better contract then Blazers can give him.

    Last but not least ...... Stotts

    He is a great coach for the regular season knows how to get the most out of a team but i am not sure he can get many teams past 1st 2 rounds -- it is time to move on -- Let Vanterpool or however it's spelled have the job IF you cannot lure anyone else

    Dane is now under a 40% career playoff shooter. Not a small sample size. Much love. .. but that leaves something to be desired.

    There was a weird exchange where CJ missed 2 of 3 free throws but Curry gets a rebound and finds CJ wide open in the corner and he misses badly.
    That kind of thing is what was happening tonight.
    I just can't Blame Damian Lillard for that???? Curry missing two wide open looks at the end. Meyers missed his wide open look. Turner throws the ball straight up and looks at the ref?
    These things are not on Stotts or Lillard?
