It was definitely a "No... no... YES!!!" moment for me, but he had his shooting touch tonight.
man that game was nerve wracking

Fortunately for the Warriors, their bench god-awfulled their way to 25 much-needed points despite arguably their best overall bench guy (Looney) exiting with an injury.
Man  
santacruzom : 6/5/2019 9:25 pm : link
I wouldn't be surprised if the Warriors score less than 75 points tonight.
Jordan Bell is one of the worst  
dep026 : 6/5/2019 9:41 pm : link
Players Iíve ever seen. He was in for two defensive possessions and gives up a and 1 by giving up baseline and then bites on a Danny green head fake for 3.
On the other hand  
santacruzom : 6/5/2019 9:43 pm : link
Curry just may be superheroic this game.
Aren't all players  
santacruzom : 6/5/2019 9:45 pm : link
Who make mistakes "the worst player you've ever seen" though?

Fortunately for them, losing tonight is very unlikely.
That foul call on Cook  
dep026 : 6/5/2019 10:15 pm : link
May have been of the worst ever.
Kane fitzgerald still the worst official in the nba  
nygiants16 : 6/5/2019 10:15 pm : link
and kyle lowry is such a dirtbag
Down 8 at the half is pretty good  
santacruzom : 6/5/2019 10:25 pm : link
Considering the circumstances. Should be down five but that silly call on Cook negated a 3.
Not a good quarter for cousins  
dep026 : 6/5/2019 10:39 pm : link
He is getting killed defensively and has missed two shots within a foot. Fatigue has to be playing a factor.

If both Dursnt and Thompson return and are healthy enough to be effective, I like the Warriors chances to win 3 of the next 4 games. Even as depleted as they are, the Raptors needed some game 1-esque ass pull shots to thwart Warrior runs.
If klay and durant do not return  
nygiants16 : 6/5/2019 11:45 pm : link
absolutely zero chance the warriors win this series, curry is not going to go for 47 again...

I'm honestly not sure either make it back for Game 4. Durant isn't even on the sidelines watching the game. Seems very odd that a guy whose 2 days away from playing isn't even on his team's sideline.

As we saw with Odell his rookie year hamstring injuries are very tricky. He missed a bunch of time with a hamstring injury and Klay has to make it back in less then 5 days? Not sure about that either.

I'm wary about him coming back healthy enough to be effective, but in the other hand, from a durability standpoint Klay is to Odell as Eli Manning is to Sam Bradford.
Gotta imagine Klay &

KD both return for Game 4.
This is turning into the perfect script..

for KD to be the hero and stay in GS.

Klay will play. I donít think KD will be back.

Excitement here in Toronto is growing. Raptors are two wins away from their first championship. Leonard reportedly bought a house recently in the city fuelling speculation he will stay.
I think my vertical jump  
dep026 : 6/7/2019 9:45 pm : link
Is higher than Cousins.
So will the narrative be if dursnt doesnt come back  
nygiants16 : 6/7/2019 9:49 pm : link
and the warriors lose that he quit on the team and didnt try hard enough to play like Kaly and Looney did?
Welp  
dep026 : 6/7/2019 10:56 pm : link
Kawhi basically said this series is all his.
Kawhi baby!  
adamg : 6/7/2019 10:57 pm : link
League's best player.
Curry's  
MookGiants : 6/7/2019 11:02 pm : link
form looks weird in this game, like he's hesitating on the release on every single one

Ya know Draymond is gonna go there. Canít help himself.
Curry seems to have a lot of games  
dep026 : 6/7/2019 11:16 pm : link
Like this in the finals.

Heís been brutal offensively and worse defensively tonight.
Well this should put an end to the insanely stupid narrative  
moespree : 6/7/2019 11:25 pm : link
That Durant wasn't overly important to the Warriors and they could coast to titles without him.
For as good as Curry was in game three  
adamg : 6/7/2019 11:33 pm : link
he's looks bad tonight. Air ball there.
3-1  
MookGiants : 6/7/2019 11:41 pm : link
but Durant is looming. If he can come back for game 6 Toronto better finish this on Monday night because I dont think they'll win if Durant comes back
I've had a calf injury before.  
madgiantscow009 : 6/7/2019 11:51 pm : link
felt just like one spot the size of a dime was pulled. Took about 10 days to feel back to normal and immediately pulled it again. Took about three months in total.
Can't say I expected it to go quite like this  
ChaChing : 6/7/2019 11:54 pm : link
Raps D has been phenomenal. I thought the Bucks might have this type of effect, but even then didn't think GSW would go this cold. Nor did I appreciate the weakness of their bench

Lowry has come to play. His playoff numbers may not be what a guy paid to be #2 or #3 should look like. But he is such a scrapper, so many deflections, tips to the right man, that late shot fake he made b4 passing to Gasol for a wide open 3 was perfect (Gasol missed, but still)

The Raps 2ndary players stepped up a round or 2 ago, but kept it going in spite of finals pressure (esp for a 1st franchise appearance). VanVleet's kid's timing was huge!

Well if KD returns who knows, but man I never thought 3-1 w/ the Raps basically being right there if not leading large chunks each game (if not coming back from double digit deficits when they did)

Good stuff. Kawhi has all but cemented legendary status. What a beast

If Durant comes back and leads GS to winning the title, I think that is awful news for the Knicks. He might very well stay in GS.
I dont think  
MookGiants : 6/8/2019 12:09 am : link
any of it matters.

I would be stunned if his mind isn't already made up.

You guys are freaking yourselves out. nygiants16 flip flops each week sometimes each day, one day it's he thinks irving and durant are definitely coming, the next he knows the knicks are going to strike out.

In the past GS opponents were the ones getting injured  
xman : 6/8/2019 12:25 am : link
One year it was Spurs leonard going down in the playoffs against GS . Then I think Irving went down with GS playing the Cavs. All the while GS was injury free. Injuries impact series

Of course it sure helps when you make your foul shots 23/24 and don't turn the rock over. Toronto is playing flawless

+1. I don't know that his mind is made up or that he won't change if it is. But the daily rumor mill isn't relevant. Aside from being clickbait or typical media nonsense, you can play this stuff in any direction:

KD plays
W: he stays. Or maybe they still show SC & KT more love, leaves
L: the team / fans realize they need him and change the overall attitude that he's disliked, stays

KD doesn't play
W: it's definitely SC & KT's team. Gone
L: Fans / franchise sell out to keep him - stays. Or they're pissed he didn't play while KT & Looney did? Out

We can do this all day, without the talking heads' daily BS! Even ignoring office locations & friends opinions and other rumors like that...
Klay looked better than anyone could've imagined  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 6/8/2019 3:16 am : link
and Looney came back when no one expected it and actually played well. Unfortunately, no one else on the team helped out. As good as Curry was in game 3, he erased that with a lackluster performance on both ends of the floor in game 4. Igoudala and Livingston look like they both retired already. Quinn Cook couldn't have made a shot alone in the gym versus a folding chair. Draymond is useless from more than 8 feet out.

Kawhi played like a superstar and the other rotation players are all playing with tremendous confidence and chemistry.
Toronto has been the better team  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 6/8/2019 7:48 am : link
all series long. I think they end it on Monday.
Quote from Kerr - sounds like he's frustrated with KD?  
Eli Wilson : 6/8/2019 8:19 am : link
Quote:
"We're hoping he can play Game 5 or 6. And everything in between I've decided I'm not sharing because it's just gone haywire," Kerr said. "There's so much going on, and so it doesn't make sense to continue to talk about it. He's either going to play or he's not. So tonight he's not playing."
KD  
XBRONX : 6/8/2019 8:25 am : link
doesnt want to push it with his upcoming huge signing with the Knicks. LOL
Golden State looks exhausted  
nygiants16 : 6/8/2019 9:15 am : link
It is very hard to win 3 in a row, they just look spent and injuries obviously have somrthing to do with it but they look shot...

Kerr may br frustrated because he was told game 3 or 4 and then that changed, so he is tired of putting a timetable onnit because it keeps changing...he made a comment talking about gray area
This series reminds me a lot of LAL-  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 6/8/2019 9:18 am : link
Detroit '04. That ended in 5 too.
It is sweet on some level that the one team to give up a 3-1  
adamg : 6/10/2019 7:14 pm : link
Is this warriors team. They've got a chance to do the same to another team now with Durant back. I'm pumped for this game.
This is the Klay Thompson game imo  
Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 6/10/2019 7:34 pm : link
30pt first half for Klay in a comfortable Warriors W.

I hope so at least.

Warriors losing tonight would be weak. They have to go down swinging.
booming the national anthem  
RasputinPrime : 6/10/2019 8:58 pm : link
makes me think there is a hockey game or something. The city of Vancouver is buzzing.
