Major rant coming . . .
You know, I try not to get down on losses like this, and just try to be positive about the Warriors in general, but this loss is the last fuckin straw. The minute you think the Warriors are on the cusp of becoming an a contender, they pull a no show like tonight. We are so goddamn inconsistent its amazing.
This is the type of game where I would have liked to see Wright get into the game. The usual lineups were NOT working. At least he would have been energetic. We needed a shot in the arm and instead we got a heavy dose of Pietrus and Barnes. Yay. Our only good shooters are Monta and Al. So what happens? Monta is shooting well, so he stops shooting. Al is shooting well, so he stops shooting (or gets taken out of the game for Barnes or Pietrus). How many layups did we miss? At least 10 or 15.
Its like if Baron goes 0-15, Nelly thinks that the only way we can get back into the game is if Baron brings us back so he takes another 15 shots. We can still win with Baron or S Jax having a bad game! We don't need them taking 50 shots combined if they're not shooting well. Don't compound the problem by having him take twice as many shots. They're not the end all be all of the W's. Monta went 11 of 12 tonight. Why is he only taking 12 shots and Baron is taking 24? Its like no one wants to believe that it's not their night so they try to shoot themselves back into a good shooting night. It's like a gambler who believes that he can win his money back if just had more chips. Sometimes it's not your night and you have to let the other guys get your usual points. And why the hell does Pietrus get so much playing time? A technical for inciting the crowd? What the phuck!!! Its frustrating because these losses are because of the same crap over and over again. No adjustments or changes are ever made.
Along with the constant yabbering about Gasol, Shaq, the Bulls' shitty season, Reggie's Warrior pessism, this loss and telecast were horrible. I swear, every time Reggie Miller is the announcer for a Warriors game, they play terrible.
Three most hated ex warriors: Mike Dunleavy Jr., Tom Gugliotta, Todd Fuller.
