Monta making plays for others and not taking insane shots, and we play some great basketball. Fun to watch. Steph is on fire!

I feel like this team can beat anyone and lose to anyone in the league right now.

That is because they are really young. Turn overs and rebounding is what kills us. When we play well it is fun. The game ball should go to Monta, he got everyone involved. Today he was PG and Curry was SG.

Yep, nice to see. He didn't dominate the ball and the team goes on a run... coincidence? When he did, he was picking his spots more and looking to play-make. Only ended up with 7 FGA's but 11 assists. Also Curry reminded me how good he is and how much the team missed him. The 2nd half was the best ball I've seen them play all year.... teamplay, opportunistic, the ball was jumping. That's what I'd like to see from this team as far as scoring. 1/3 Curry 1/3 David Lee 1/3 Monta. Kinda like the We Believe team where they just got the rock to the hot hand. Monta needs to be a playmaker, not just a scorer, to be valuable to this team. He's too much of a liability on D (constantly out of position) to be a one-dimensional player making $11mil/yr.
