I'm mad as fuk, but we can beat this team. I know we blundered an opportunity to win game 1, but that game showed us that we are capable of beating this Spurs team. If anything, we showed the the Spurs their own mortality and that we aren't going to lay down and let them win.

Let's give them hell, man.

DAMMIT... I'm still balls to the walls pissed the fuk off about yesterday....

I'm no expert, but I'm kinda baffled as to why we're starting two Centers. I guess a better question would be - why does Boris Diaw's presence on the court prompt Warrior coaches to insert a 2nd C into the starting lineup? Is Landry incapable of being matched up with Diaw? We were much more vulnerable in the low post when both Bogut and Ezeli were on the bench. The Spurs penetrated time and again when they went with a small lineup. I understand coaching trying to find the best match-ups, but not having a shot blocker/rebounder on the floor, only allows a team to exploit that lack of defensive presence. Doesn't make a ton of sense in my opinion. Feel free to shed some light.

I think they'll start with Green against Diaw. Personally, I'd like to see Barnes back at PF, with Thompson, Curry and Jack starting for this series. Ezeli has hands like feet. He can't catch anything.

We need to go to Barnes every play while they have Parker guarding him

Jack and his isolation offence drives me crazy. He wastes the majority of the shot clock, then when the clock is about to expire, he tries to get a low percentage shot off or he panics and passes it off to someone else who has to quickly jack up an impossible shot. He obviously didn't learn from the last 4 minutes of regulation time in the last game. In fact, I hold him responsible for that loss.

He's been taking those all season. Im under the impression that he makes a good percentage of them. Queue Blackfoot.

Klay takes away the middle of the driving lane and than closes out on the three point shooter in the same possession.

Pretty great stuff from him on both ends.

Wrote this before the spurs series and well

Mon May 06, 2013 2:16 pmI think Klay will be the X-factor this series, if he plays well we might pull it off, also Lee. I say these two because we are not exactly sure what we expect from them. Klay has a favorable match-up compared to the rest of the starters. Klay did not have the best series against Denver, he will be needed badly against the spurs. I expect great series from Curry, Barnes needs to be playing at a high level, as well as Bogut. Everyone has stepuped it up major during the playoffs, really amazed.
