Crazy to think the warriors won 2 more games this year than last year when they were the sixth seed. And those 2 more wins has them in 10th

This was a gritty win. It's REAL hard to beat a solid team on the road like that in two must win situations for them, REAL hard. Especially on Nat TV when everyone is calling them and their best player out.

Good sign given how much we will be on the road.

We had our way with teams like the pelicans, thunder, bucks and so on this season. While losing terribly to teams like the kings and nuggets.

Meanwhile the pelicans are 5-0 against the kings. Defeated the nuggets once this season. Just lost two straight at home to the Lakers. I expect them to destroy the kings next game especially without Malik Monk.

Sabonis struggles against Jonas and Zion. While he had a really successful season against AD, Jokic, Embiid, and Giannis LOL

All about matchups.

We lost 8 straight to the nuggets. Hoping that tide has turned. πŸ™πŸ€πŸ™πŸ€πŸ™

48-35 this season!

It's pretty crazy that Lakers own the Pels, Pels own the Kings, and Kings own the Lakers. It seems to make no sense, but yeah, it's all about which teams have players that can exploit the other team's weaknesses.

Unfortunately Nuggets have two or three players that can exploit the Lakers' weaknesses.

Let see what a revenge mode playoff LeBron could do.
AD vs Joker, time to see where AD stack in the big men pantheon
DLo-AR-Rui vs Gordon-MPJ-KCP
Get that #18

If Zion doesn't get hurt the Pelicans may have won last night. No report on his MRI as yet.

If AD wasn’t hurt, we might have a blow out win, hope the 4 days rest relax his spasm

You're right. I forgot AD wasn't 100%. Denver's owned us. AD and Bron are on record saying they want them because they talked smack. 4 days of rest is a blessing.

LETS GO

Great win, I don't believe in trying to duck teams...all the teams are good in the playoffs.

Remember when Klutch wanted to trade DLO for another malcontent client Murray?

They don’t deserve DLO saving their ass as much as he did this season. Clown ass personnel evaluators.


Murray pretty much got his team in the play in and they have even better since Young went out. The trade not happening worked for both of them. Young getting hurt helped the Hawks as Murray went back to the point guard spot and won game for them. Dlo getting out his head and passing the deadline helped us.

This summer comes down to Murray needing the Hawks to trade Young so he can be the point guard he was to end the year and them to improve their team. It also comes down to Dlo showing up bs Denver and getting his bag and role secured, as a melt down will kill his market for the rest of his career and get us sent home this summer.
