First FTs for Warriors with less than a minute in the first half...

And Jackson wants a foul on DeAndre to put him on a FT line, and DeAndre sinks both. On a very begin of their possession.

When Monta is playing the PG, not just being placed on that position, but really playing it as it should be played, we're actually a damn good team...and fun to watch.

20 pt lead, after last night and what we've done thus far tonight, we may have found a line that works. The D is awesome.

Well said, was just thinking that. When Monta is a willing passer, passing early in the shot clock, not forcing shots, actually trying to create for others instead of it being a last resort...he's a good player. Can he do it for 82 games though, vs non-elite teams that you naturally get hyped for / try to play your best game.

just looks like we are harassing the clips and D Lee has been impressive.

And the we screw up 3-4 possessions in a row at the very beginning of the plays...how can you screw up so badly in a few plays and go back to +12?!

Jackson and his substitutes...he had 2 guards and 3 SFs on the court at one point. And then he puts Jenkins in...it's like we won. Just play the well you did for the entire game...please. Just once, no screw ups.

a dios mio... this game, man, this game. This game exemplifies what's wrong with the NBA / NBA officiating / the czar David Stern.

- Pandering every call to your rising young star player / KIA spokesperson / slam dunk champion? Check
- Trying to foul out or dim the aggressiveness of the guy guarding the star playerwith ticky tack phantom calls? Check
- Getting fooled(?) by every flop (even when it's by one of the strongest players in the league)? Check
- Home crowd advantage in foul calls? Check
- Elite / new "it" team advantage in foul calls? Check
- A few make-up calls (which are also phantom / bs calls) to make it seem like it's going both ways? Check

Such horrid officiating. Thing is, we all know exactly why it's happening and who's orders they're following. My thing is, if a guy is truly a star player, then why does he even need the refs help?

If we end up losing this game, I think I'll be done with the NBA as a whole, at least for a time being...

Why is Robinson still in the game? And why is not the ball in Monta's hands? We did great while we did that...but, oh, well...why should we stick with it I guess.

Wow! I didn't mind calls a lot during this game, up until now...but this is pure garbage from the refs now.

And of top of it all, I had to listen to Clippers' announcers who were complaining on the refs on every call that wasn't in their favor, lol.
