How can the refs think this is a fairly called game, even with Dwight Howard altering things.

Without Dwight we would have more FT attempts than them.

since udoh couldn't do **** against dwight, to protect biedrins jackson had to go hack a dwight. in some sense it is reasonable (for if biedrins and udoh go out soon, you can't risk losing lee as well, who's been destroying orlando's pfs), but as announcers of tnt noticed it really slowed down the game and due to this we had troubles on offense.
anyway that's a strategic thinking, and it's nice to see it from our coach.
i would like them to open running again after the half and with good shooting maybe build some lead which could make hack a dwight in the fourth quarter be not such a bad idea.

I agree, Udoh can't do anything next to Dwight, and we can't save Biedrins from fouling out for too long. At least let Tyler in when you wanna play "hack a Dwight", cause Udoh is useful when not being placed on Dwight.

Well I think all of Howard's whining has finally worked as they seem afraid to call fouls against him and more than happy to send him to the line every possession for Orlando.

Gosh it would be nice if he would play for the Warriors.

udoh did not do hack a dwight, it was tyler and then thompson. udoh simply got abused and later biedrins

Orlando has a simple and effective game plan. Golden State just has to get creative and not let Dwight get them into foul trouble and out of the game.

This team does not seem complete without Curry. He is kind of the yin to Monta's yang (I'm aware how dumb it sounds). Without Curry, Monta just kind of does what he wants because there is no one else that will take control of the offense.

Hopefully Lee and Robinson can step in and change the pace of the offense when it becomes stagnant.

He didn't play it on purpose...I mean, he wasn't put in the game to do that, but he couldn't defend Dwight otherwise.

Lee missed so easy tip in...the kind that I would make with my left hand.

And Howard is not getting to the FT line every time. This isn't looking too good at the moment.

They are shooting horribly now. The Warriors can't afford to shoot this bad when they aren't rebounding well and don't get to the line.

Biedrins with his 4th foul. You knew this was going to happen. God I hate Howard, with how many FT's he gets he should get at least 35 a night.

warriors have two mismatches with reddick on monta and any orlando pf on lee, that's where they should go. dwight will get udoh and biedring out of the game before half of fourth quarter, then it's a matter of how long lee can hang in.
we'll need threes to hang in.
