I agree but last game ever in Oracle and then who knows in a game 7, TOR missed a huge chance tonight. Really they should have won all five games so far, it will be historic theft if GS somehow steals two more.I don't think the Warriors can win two more without Durant and Looney. They are not going to go down without a fight, but I just don't think they have the horses unless they get big games from Cousins.
But I wonder if Toronto will be affected at all by having been so close to closing it out and letting it slip away. Probably not, but we'll see.
At the same time, that was an all-time gut check win by the Warriors. Down 6 with 3 to go with all the guys they've lost, they could easily have folded and gone home.
Yup. And he just lost a good chunk of his age 31 season rushing back too soon.The pundits that gave Durant shit for not coming back sooner look pretty dumb here. KD didn’t get through a half before he, at best, reinjured the calf and quite possibly tore the Achilles.
Looney has already said he's good to go in Game 6. Huge for them, since Bell is pretty much lost out there and DeMarcus (despite some good plays tonight) can be pick-and-rolled to death.I don't think the Warriors can win two more without Durant and Looney.
They've had a few of those year (Game 5 and 6 v. Houston after the KD injury, Game 2 of the Finals with KD, Klay, Looney out, and Steph with a 128 degree fever, e.g.) But yeah. They're now 6-1 in elimination games. Give me two more of those, plz.all-time gut check win by the Warriors. Down 6 with 3 to go with all the guys they've lost, they could easily have folded and gone home.
Part of me is sick of the Warriors, part of me would really enjoy a division rival choking their potential only year of Kawhi when it was literally 1-2 more good possessions from being over.The Raptors choke job is getting overlooked. I'd say it's a coin flip who wins this series now.
I don't think they choked per se. The Warriors decided that anyone but Kawhi could shoot and the strategy worked.The Raptors choke job is getting overlooked. I'd say it's a coin flip who wins this series now.
In the first half, Curry was on the bench and Cook had a wide open look. It appeared to me that Curry did something similar. Cool missed his shot.I can't believe Steph did this in this situation:
Probably you.Is it just me, or was the crowd beyond awful?
He was the hero, going on a personal 10-0 run IIRC. Then the last two minutes happened. Raps relaxed maybe, or got tight, either way Warriors deserve some credit.Kawhi just needed to keep driving into the lane. I know the double (triple?) was coming, but it wasn't as if they had a plan. Be the hero Kawhi
