The guy was a key frontcourt piece to their 17-7 finish and we saw what happened in G1…..what does a guy have to do?
He's been atrocious by DARKO his entire career.

I guess DARKO could be wildly off on him, but 99% of the players that are consistently -2 on DARKO for many seasons into their age 25 season are just.... not good.

Perhaps Rui is the exception. Or Perhaps he had a nice game and will go back to sucking. Time will tell.

Cam Johnson working the Sixers here.
I sneakily really love the guys BKN got for Durant, Bridges and Johnson are both guys who felt like a bigger role would see them blossom.

They showed that “block” by Embiid on Bridges multiple times and never once mentioned it was clearly a foul…

The producer of the Sixers-Nets game is Burt Bondi….not sure if there are any Curb fans out here but he’s the guy from the dentists waiting room in the “Chet’s Shirt” episode

As GSW fan, I'd forgotten until this series how much I resent Harrison Barnes for the stinkbomb he threw up in Games 5-7 of the 2016 Finals.

Weird game so far. Warriors turning it over like crazy, but are leading because the Kings are chucking up 3s and making none of them (0-10 so far).

Kings are playing fast and loose with possessions. That can work during fun back and forth games from October to March. Not in April or beyond.

Remember when coaches shortened their rotations for the postseason? We’ve seen 20 players take the floor in the 1H tonight.

so are there others who used to kind of like GSW, but now want them to lose?
*raises hand*

I've lived in the bay area since 2010, they are super fun to watch, and they were always playing Lebron in the finals. I've been off them since Durant joined, and of course ratchet it up to 10 when we played them last year. Curry is still incredible to watch, on and off the ball. Legitimately the most exciting offensive player I've ever seen (I'm 39), he bends the court around him.

It feels like this Sacto crowd is even more fired up than Saturday. Is that even possible?
Blood in the water.

When the seeds were set it seemed like the Warriors dodged a bullet by avoiding the Suns but damn…this may actually be their worst matchup. GS doesn’t have the legs to keep up with the Kings.

Its also helpful to have a guy like Brown who knows GS's system inside and out. He probably knows what Kerr is going to do before Steve does.

No doubt. Though outside of Curry these Kings have a speed advantage everywhere. Will be interesting to see if the Warriors can leverage their experience at some point in the series. I don’t think anyone had them dropping both games in Sacramento because that’s where we are headed

Agree with this. GSW has a bunch of guys who can guard wings like JT, Jb, KD, etc. but don't really have the quickness to guard Fox and Monk.
Kings are playing fast and loose with possessions. That can work during fun back and forth games from October to March. Not in April or beyond.
Though both coaches said they wanted to play even faster than G1 We'll see how that goes as the series continues.
