Defense has been horri-bad lately.

Celtics were on though. Hard to beat any team that plays like that.

Much better intensity vs the Nuggets.

Surprise surprise that Klay made a big difference.

Looneys absence is underrated also.

Still worried about Boogie.

Our other 4 starters were +24, +23, +20 and +30. While Boogie was just +5
Guarding PnR is a concern, Looney better in this area, also the ball doesn't zip when he's backing down in the post... times ticking, interesting times.

Bogut might see more minutes than we think, can he still guard the PnR?

Only KD,Steph and Looney in the positive vs the Suns, horrible loss....

Liv -15, Klay -10, Iggy -6, Dray - 4, Boogie -2 so not all on Boogie.

Hope KD's ankle is ok.

Hoping they can finish the season strong, feels like the Last Dance, Boogie gone, KD a fair chance to go, Klay stay.

Feels like they are either over the regular season after such a long run or each other, maybe a little of both.

Hoping for a better showing down the stretch and to finish it with a Championship.

Heading across to see them play Charlotte and Denver at Oracle, then the Lakers in LA and Houston vs the Clippers and an A's baseball game.

Hope they come to play, time is ticking so had to get there before they close Oracle...

Great win in Houston.

Games vs Houston feel like Cavs games in the past.

Actually fun to go in as the underdog.

Boogie was great as was Klay.

Steph being Steph.

I wonder if/when Boogies athleticism comes back, not that that he is super athletic.

Looney again an important contributor.

Thought we closed out their shooters well for the most part.

Boogie was fantastic. The concern is that if he isn't on offensively, whether his defensive liability is worth it.

Great win with Durant out and Steh having a down game.

Backed it up in OKC.

Boogie good again, normally Adams plays well vs the Dubs but Boogie won that match up.

Steph/Klay on, Dubs D good, Russ couldn’t hit a shot and Dray could and made a few threes.

Stephens give and go corner three working a treat as well as his drives.

Klays shot making on full display, amazing how much he has developed his game since being drafted.

In a league of fanfair and ego his low maintenance approach is a pleasure to watch.

So many teams have talent but are too selfish to wake it work, full credit to Steph, Klay,Andre and Dray as well as Steve Kerr.

We've picked up the defense over the last week or so.

We've climbed up to 13th in the league (after being in the high teens all season). A good sign with the playoffs approaching.

We should be blowing out non-playoff teams by 30 when Durant is 12-13 from the field and Steph makes 6/12 threes.

Lacking the dominance of previous seasons.

I'm still not convinced Boogie starting is our best option.

#lolWarriors

I remember 2 years back if Steph shot 11/19 from 3 we win by 20+ every time.

Pathetic if you also throw in Towns had a shocker.

Guess you weren’t complaining when KD stepped 5 metres out of bounds with the ball a while ago?

You win some, you lose some
Probably best you stay out of the team threads if you're here to stir up an argument.

I'm just telling you that as that's the general rule here (basketball forum).

sure good calls bad calls throughout games

they actually got denied the opportunity to win or take it to overtime twice in 5 seconds... by the refs... the last 5 seconds of a game.. thats very rare to see

that ref did everything he could.

Durant getting two techs last night was terrible.

We controlled the whole game. That's just a game he should be laughing it off.

Can't afford him missing games later in the playoffs.
