A block, a steal, a three, a dunk.
Rebound and alley-oop.

We win and we are going to playoffs for a second time in last 10 years.

The sleepless nights and heart arhythmias must be worth something in return.

Go W!

Yet again, Curry's attempts eclipse Lee's and the Dubs are in trouble.

You gotta balance the offense; it can't be all outside shots. At one point in the 2nd quarter, Thompson and Curry had taken 16 shots and the rest of the team had 15. You destroy your advantage when you overextend your hand. Lee having 7 points, yet only seeing 3 shots, is absolutely unacceptable.

Once again, our gameplan is to pray that Curry catches fire and scores 35 or more. Because God knows, he's gonna take 23 shots regardless of how well anybody else is hitting. I'd love to see Lee become more involved, but it just doesn't seem to be a priority for this team. What a shame, as Lee looked like he was primed for a career season... before Steph caught a case of all-star dick envy and started taking 30% more attempts per game than David. The record dictates that the Warriors do better when Curry doesn't take 5 or more shots than Lee. Somebody outta tell Jackson/Steph.

Jefferson and Favors sets some of the biggest screens I've seen.

Tough loss. Utah earned that one.

Here's a little tidbit that's worth mentioning though. On that last play where Mo Williams hit the dagger 3, Draymond started on Jefferson on the baseline. He told Lee to switch with him because Green wouldn't be able to handle him on the post. They switch. The second Jefferson goes up to give Williams a screen, he tells Lee to stay home and he covers Jefferson as he goes to the top of the key. It didn't make that much difference because Williams drilled a pull up 3, but I appreciate that kind of basketball IQ a lot.

Good on you, Green.

pretty bad execution in the final 2 min. someone tell me why ice cold off the bench Draymond Green was in the game on offense in the last possessions? Also, vs these bigger front courts, Ezeli needs to play more than 5min. Landry had a good shooting night but Jazz were having their way with the offensive boards. Klay Thompson had one of his more diverse scoring games. I still think he could be a less athletic Paul Pierce if he reaches his potential.

I'm ok with this loss tho cuz Jazz are in 8th now. F the Lakers!

At least the Lakers have less of a chance to make the playoffs.

Bad loss...hopefully Houston will suck as well, so we can keep our 6th spot.

The only players that were in the plus on our team were Barnes and Ezeli, and they both played less than they should. Utah has great bigs, yet we wanna play with two PFs against them.
