    amazingly enough, Kerr isnt asking questions about what happened in the game ala Stotts.

    all the great teams have had amazing on court leaders who are vocal and demand effort and coach on the court - i want to see someone on our team pissed off...... not sad, pissed.

    wheres the accountability? where's the passion? wheres the pressure to positive?

    I blame the entire team for being intimidated and playing like it. That's why CJ whiffed those shots so badly when he's made them all season and playoffs. Is some of that on Dame and Terry's leadership? I dunno, maybe...

    We did. We lost to the champs. No shame in that. Its like if S2 had a tournament and somehow I made it to playing you in third round and lost. No shame in it.

    I love Dame but can we please never throw him into the tier 1 list of players again.

    Harden averaged 36ppg on 45% shooting in their series against Golden State against the same guys, with a supporting cast that is nothing to write home about either.

    Harden is just better player. Their defense on him wasn't like their defense on Dame.

    No shame if you play well and lose because they just played great. There is shame in coming out and playing like a bunch of chumps and handing them 3 straight games and proving Kevin Durant's bitch ass right.

    He plays well against GS, they don’t really have anyone that can stop him when he’s not getting doubled, which wouldn’t be happening if you put him on current day Blazers.

    We should be up 2-1 if this team had balls.

    Exactly. Where is the shame in losing to the best team in the NBA that everyone all season long has been saying is a lock to win the Championship?
    In the Western Conference Finals no less.

    Harden attacks the blitz , forces the switch, and toasts the mismatch.

    I saw Dame do that a couple times tonight and get clamped by Jonas Jerebko and Jordan Bell.

    The Rockets are literally built to beat the Warriors lol every piece they add is for that purpose. It’s basically three guards (Harden, Paul, Gordon) and everyone else is 3&D specialist types or rebound/put back bigs.

    You haven't heard? Stott's assistant coaches have already accepted jobs elsewhere. They outta here this off season. Can't say I blame them.
