Bonus In-Game Notes

  • Came in late to the game. Looking a bit dry out here for points. I saw Steph get trapped at half court. Only sheer force like Paschall bullying inside seems to be working. Curious how Wiseman looked... could be a situation for him to practice using force.

  • Yeesh, Dubs going to claw their way in with long 2s? Paschall and Wiggins can hit those but... sustainable?

  • Looks like our website is feeling the hiccups too. Sorry everyone

  • Q2.5.00. I like that new twist in the GSW HORNS set. Looked like a Steph handoff but Paschall does a fake handoff, into a give and go.

  • Paschall with the great D on Kawhi???

  • Yeesh Oubre and Wiseman cannot finish around Ibaka

  • 2 for 1 time... Steph indulgence?

  • Wow, Beverley was gnawing on Dray’s arm, Dray throws him off towards halfcourf, Steph gets Dray on the roll, rotation off Wise, lob dunk.

  • How the heck did GSW stay within 1 that half??

  • Sorry about the site wonkiness, I’ve set a note to support.

  • Also I can’t watch the game past 9 today...

  • Bad moment for Wiseman. Missed opp to spin on Ibaka, turnover on pass, soft foul on PG13

  • Wiseman follows with a bad long 2 in a messy possession, followed by losing a shooter at the arc, but followed THAT with a sky high lob catch and dunk

  • That was a SWEET find of Oubre from Steph on that chaos fast break

  • Wiseman with a very unwise face up dribble move at top of the key. It’s stripped about 5 milliseconds into the move.

  • Wow Wiggs draws ANOTHER O foul on Kawhi

  • I don’t remember PG13 drawing this many cheap ass fouls in the past.

  • I’m impressed by the Warriors effort. Feels like eventually Kawhi and PG13 are going to out-talent unless GSW keeps up this high energy D.

  • But hey, if this stays close into the 4th, anything can happen.

  • We need to be graded on a curve

  • Wiggins is actually bothering Kawhi. Interesting. Kawhi does not really rely on craftiness, more like strength and unblockable accuracy. Wiggins seems to be standing up to the push offs and just staying in his face.

  • Hmm, an elaborate ATO to get Wiggs switched on to Beverley to iso.

  • LAC sagging hard off Dray, his guy shadowing Steph.

  • Haha I thought Dray completely nailed P Bev on that screen, but P Bev has a lot of bad flop karma to work off

  • Dubs still scrapping!! Steph attacking Zubac every time, D collapses, then Steph passes to a layup... attempt

  • You know, Baze looked like a completely loose cannon in preseason, but he has been a measured solid vet the last couple of games.

  • Well, Clips, you mess around and don’t finish the quarters, and you’re going to have actually try this fourth quarter.

  • And GSW has just enough punch between Paschall, Wiggs and Steph (and maaaaaybe Wiseman if he plays within himself) to steal one if LAC keeps f’ing around. [Update: LAC would f around until about 5:30 left in the game.]
