Game 4: GSW 116, DET 106. Injured Dubs beat injured Pistons.

I'll take a 2-2 road trip, sure

Dubs pull it out!

In-Game Notes

  • Starting with the Motion Weak PNR for Steph and Wise. Happy now, fans?

  • Maybe this Wiseman jumper is real

  • Hey, Wiseman with the skip pass to JTA! Who dishes a really slick (if intentional) drop off to JW

  • I have to note every Wiseman pass out of the post until it’s not rare. Is that the first one of his career?

  • Kerr calls HORNS. I assume the handoff is coming. Yes it is, and Wiggs gets left open so long that he is obliged to hit the 3.

  • Wow my guy JTA burrowed deep to dig out that loose ball

  • OUBRE THROUBRE

  • Gotta appreciate the irrational confidence

  • DET just outright doubling Steph. Steph swings to Wiggs on weak side, drive. Blake points to have someone cover the drive. No one responds.

  • They can’t hit anything so far... so many airballs. GSW lucky so far

  • Oubre with the nice adjustment after his relentless commitment to dunking that.

  • Too true too true

  • Getting out rebounded? Go small. Why not?

  • Hey, they ran a Post Split with Oubre in the post. Very interesting. A good play to get players used to read and react.

  • Wiggs looked pretty sturdy in the post defense there, guy was bouncing off of him

  • 2 for 1. It’s when Steph’s truly free

  • You know what? F it, let’s let DET set whatever the NBA record is for OREBs

  • Wiggins with the rare dunk attempt. As I’ve said, Wiggins and Oubre average to one normal person’s desire to dunk

  • Haha don’t curse them, they almost kicked that last one out of bounds

  • Wiggins has been hunting a monster dunk today and he finally caught one.

  • It’s kind of unblockable. I think that last Wiseman J was between multiple peopl

  • Wiseman pioneering the sky-jumper

  • Wana has a way of disrupting with annoying D

  • Wiggs with the iso. Wiseman in the dunker spot, Wiggs was looking for him all the way. Wise somehow doesn’t convert point blank

  • Haha Wise figures he can miss about five straight 3s and still lead the Dubs in 3P% so... BOMBS AWAY

  • Hmm I think that was the rare Head Tap for Steph at Q2.5.05. Puzzling travel.

  • WISEMAN PASSED! Out of the Post Split to Steph. Our rookie is learning

  • Wiseman seems to have the right position and right timing to block shots, but somehow it’s not happening

  • Holding breath

  • Wiseman again passes out of the Post Split. But when the split is Oubre-JTA, people aren’t too scared of the jumper

  • Good gravity from Wise on that huge Paschall dunk. Help couldn’t leave him

  • If only these dunks counted more for sheer awesomeness. Oubre refuses to be outdunked by Wiggs.

  • That was a next level find from Steph to Oubre, almost a second straight highlight dunk

  • I just rewatched. We’ll never know, but it was the same setup, just Paschall was in the wrong corner, Steph waved him to the correct side, and then EP bolted to curl way before the decoy slip could happen

  • I *think* that end of half play was a very messed up version of the Klay classic decoy ghost high PNR with curl pin on the right. Timing was completely wrong though, so Steph just said f it I’m going in

  • Okay, have to be happy to be down only 3 since DET was allowed to shoot twice every time down

  • Depends on whether you’re driving a playoff bus or a tank

  • They can win that way, but it will be The Longest Road

  • Dray pulling down the mask to get in Wiseman’s ear. Why exactly are they wearing them?

  • These are some pretty sweet passes from Plumlee...

  • AND MY GUY JUAN WITH THE THREE

  • Wiseman’s rim protection way better for the first minute of H2

  • Oubre just tortured Hayes on that play. Almost stole it about five times, almost forced him back past halfcourt, finally got the steal

  • For a team that was supposed to defend and fast break, our fast breaks have kind of sucked

  • WIGGINS PINNED IN FOR STEPH!! OUBRE swung it to JTA who finds a Steph 3!! The first time all year! Steph is actually dancing and high fiving everyone for the proper Kerrball

  • Oubre with the steal and a relatively sedate dunk by his standards

  • I guess we want to see what Clifford the Big Red Dog can do, but JW posting up Plumlee doesn’t feel like the best shot we can get

  • I don’t know what that play was supposed to be Q3.7.40... maybe a floppy? Intriguing. It also went nowhere.

  • JUAN AGAIN! The deflection, the hustle save out of bounds, outrunning the field, the sweet reverse!! See, I’m saving you by threading all my Juan talk

  • JTA with a SWEET poke away to save the dunk and get the steal. Do I talk too much about him? Yes. I don’t care.

  • Ooo ambush PNR with Steph, Looney, my guy Juan.

  • myguyjuan

  • Wiggins starting to get good at these Kobe assists, drawing extra help, dumping a dead bird of a shot but a teammate follows

  • JW with the post move quick not waiting for Poole to spring free. Poole with the frustration body language.

  • Q4.8.15. Another HORNS Handoff w AW backcut. The #2 play for AW this year

  • Next was the #1 AW play, Head Tap post up

  • Wiggins Head Tap again zipper option

  • That Wiseman break will make Poor Man’s Commish very happy

  • Wiggins has entered the chat

  • Maybe they sit Steph the rest of the way? No that would be silly

  • MyGuyJuan runs the short roll beautifully

  • MyGuyJuan™ with the big hustle rebound on that missed free throw.

  • Dubs are a couple of mess arounds away from Random Ending

  • Damion Lee, The Closer

  • If you write the postgame, you control the narrative, Mr. Dogg

  • Damion Lee is basically the Warriors’ Mariano Rivera. Get him in for the last inning, he’s shut things down with his two-seam jumper

  • Nate says I can’t use Rivera, have to use Eckersley. He’s not my boss anymore, but I agree. I accept the friendly amendment.
