Yeah, terrible loss after we had the game wrapped up. Hopefully losing in that way hurt the young guys and they learn from this. We had them on the floor with our foot on their throats but somehow(Jack taking the ball out of Curry's hands and playing hero ball for the last 4 minutes didn't help) we let them up again. The same thing happened in the 1st playoff game against the Nuggets. It would be nice if they series ended up the same way.

They also nearly gave away the clinching Game 6 vs Denver as well. Up 18 with 5 minutes to play. We only won by 4 pts - 92-88. And up 16 with 4 minutes to play Game 1 vs. San Antonio - total meltdown. We've struggled to finish games and its an ominous trend that has to change for us to stay alive

Not sure what to pin it on - inexperience, lack of preparation, lack of late in-game situations covered in practice??? I dont know. One thing's for sure, we did not play smart basketball from the 4 minute mark on, in Game 1. Too many turnovers, too many wasted possessions, and far too many breakdowns defensively. We went from moving the ball around, playing unselfishly, to not making a single pass on some possessions and forcing shots on others. It was ugly, to put it nicely. We have some things to correct if we hope to keep the series close.
