I have so much respect for this team. I think we can do it though. What a difference that Miami game has done for me. Before then, I would just wish we could compete. Since we beat Miami, I've been going into games with the confidence I've never have before, and I'm a pessimist! Crazy, man.

If beans/ezeli can hold their own on the boards and limit the damage by their bigs we win. Oh and if we don't have another awful shooting night of course.

Their frontline, Conleys speed, their bench, and if they can shoot from the outside then damn, they always seem to have our number.

Well, it's not impossible. Though, it first depends of amount of time Harrison will be given.

Rookies get more minutes with production. If Barnes puts Jackson in a position where he can't take him out, he'll get minutes. If he's passive and doesn't give the Warriors much more than 10 points and 5 rebounds, he'll only get 20 minutes.

Halftime:

Gay has 6 points (3/7), 2 rebounds, 2 assists in 16 minutes.
Barnes has 2 points (1/3), 2 rebounds, 1 assist in 14 minutes.

We'll see what they end up with at the end of the game.

we need someone to have a big 2nd half. Lee isn't automatic tonight.

While this isn't a game where we lost by the whistles, it's definitely not helping us. Memphis is getting the 50-50 whistles for sure.

The backcourt's been super clutch though. Klay's in the zone and Jackson's letting Curry get psyched on the bench for the closing push. Curry and Thompson stay hot and GS wins.

Memphis is in David Lee's head.

I don't blame losses on the refs very often, or hardly ever really, but they killed us in some key situations. Granted Lee had some stupid fouls, but the no calls on the other end, no call on the basket interference (which everyone saw), even the 24 second violation that shouldn't of been called that killed a break in the middle of a run...

Same here. That goes uncalled 9 times out of 10. For the ref to end the game like just leaves a bad taste.

I think games like this show just how undervalued Klay Thompson is. He is far from being just a shooter. Vs a tough Grizzlies team -- 20 pt 7 reb 7 ast, +3 while on the court, while the rest of the starters were in the negative. I'm going on record that Klay is the best decision-maker with the ball in his hands on the team. He makes something happen every time, he makes good decisions, etc. Love this dude's competitiveness, game, and bbiq.
