I couldn't bring myself to type something last night, cause I know it would be quite bad. It won't be much better now, though.
First thing, Klay Thompson. I was never as high on him as some people were, but I never wanted to say anything bad about him, cause he is still a young, and a good kid, and he is still developing. But...Klay should not play over 40 minutes a game, Klay should not take close to 30 shots per game, and Klay definitely isn't our go to guy, which was painfully obvious last night when he, as a pure shooter, missed both free throws that in the end cost us the game. He will get his points, but how could he not when he shoots that much. And those are not open shots, cause he is pretty much a one trick pony. He is a good shooter, and that's it, at least for now. So, when he goes through the screens and there is a clear shot, please Klay, feel free to take it...but those times (and there's quite few of them) when there just isn't enough space to shoot, don't ****ing shoot!
Other than that, he is our weakest link on defense. I couldn't believe how easily Denver's players were running past him...he looked more like a revolving door out there. To his credit, he is not the idiot who put him to guard Gallinari...it was expected that Iggy would make him look like a kid occasionally.
So, Klay is good, I like the kid, but he needs to pull the break a bit, cause he is not our best player, he is a 4th, eventually third scorer on the team, for now at least.
Now, Jackson...man, in the end we had a chance to separate ourselves from them, and Jackson called some pretty horrendous plays. We tried multiple times some three pointers after screens, on the run. Not so much down to the post plays...just when accidentally Landry got to the ball. He should have pulled out Klay, the kid was out there all the time. Barnes handcuffed Gallinari, he wasn't seen practiacly while Harrison was on him, and he played less than 20 minutes, WTF?! Then you have that small ball again with Landry and Lee against McGee (Koufos) and Manimal. How can they beat them, when it is quite obvious that they have all of the advantage in height and physicality. Ezeli had to be out there some more as well. Lee was obviously tired, it's hard to battle it without a stop against bigger guys.
Damn...I'm just thoroughly disappointed by this game, on so many accounts. We should have taken this one...we had to take it, and had more than one shot at it, and we blew it every time.

Now I can look at this with a little bit more objectivity.
Losing close games is better than be blowing out. It is a better indicator of future success. It's a long season and Bogut is not back. Klay unchoked with a three, but man, Carl choked again. **** hurts.
