In the last 6 games of actual NBA Basketball.... the Warriors have lost KD, Klay and Curry.

RIP Oracle Warriors.
A new era of <unintelligble> Warriors begins now at the Chase Center.

::hat held to chest, head down, horns start playing::

p.s. I kept warning about that Injury Bug from last season.... this is some final destination ****, and that Injury Bug was not to be denied. Dray better watch his back.

New starting lineup?

PG: D'Angelo Russell
SG: Damian Lee
SF: Eric Paschall
PF: Draymond Green
C: Willie Cauley-Stein

Not entirely sure on Lee and Paschall but they have been playing well the past few games so I figure they could be slotted in for their size and shooting in the 2 and 3 spot.

With D'lo you have a superb pass first point guard who can create his own shot as well. You have Draymond in there for defense and a secondary passer. Stein can be good for transitional points and pick and rolls.  Lee and Paschall to spread the floor along side Green and D'lo?

On the upside for the Warriors, maybe getting all the injuries out at one time is a good thing. Just get it all over with, you know?

Take the high draft pick (their pick this year is protected if in the top 20 and they could use some cheap talent), see what you've got with the younger players getting some experience, wait for the vets to all get healthy, and target next year as your return.  It's a short-term bummer... but think about how things fell into place with Steph's bad ankles early on.

Is there a Tim Duncan in the draft pool this year? Because the Warriors could pull a 96-97 Spurs, grab them, and be set for another two decades.

Also, there was a pretty nutty game between Houston and Washington last night, then there's whatever the hell this was between the Rockets and Wizards.

That Rockets Wiz game was all regulation too.....
did anyone play defense? Or was it all hurry up offense?
That score is just ridiculous. I didn't get to watch it, but I saw the score last night right after it ended and was like O_o!!!!


Also congrats to the Nationals.
The Game 5 crowd deserved the win. Along with the random fan interviewed at the series was won!!!

Defense wasn't good... but it didn't seem laughable while watching. Lots of great offensive talent, and a convergence of a bunch of players having good games at the same time. Not really a fan of either team, but the game was a very entertaining watch - especially trading blows close to the end.

As to this upcoming draft pool there is James Wiseman who is a center and he is suppose to be really good. There is also Vernon Carey Jr further down. At the moment Warriors have the 9th projected pick and maybe they can move up on draft night by adding a player with their pick.

Apparently, Embid & Towns took their fight to social media after the game. Clearly, Embid isn't the brightest, considering this will almost certainly factor into what the NBA decides to do with these two.

That's not bad, all things considered.
Gotta check to see who they playing tho.

Who's gonna miss their guy more during the next two games?

The Wolves play the Wizards on Saturday, followed by the Bucks on Monday.

The Sixers play the Blazers on Saturday, followed by the Suns (!) on Monday.

Honestly, it's closer than it should be, but I'd say the Sixers lose out more. Those are 2 high-level playoff teams right there.

I mean from an overall team perspective the Wolves are going to miss Towns more since a lot of the offense goes through him. Philly has Simmons and Harris as remaining parts of the team.

reading up on the report, Curry is only expected to miss about 6-8 weeks at most.
I was ready to write him off for the season, but it's not that serious and on his non-shooting hand.

I was almost ready to see this become the Dray & D-Lo show, and find out who the real supporting cast is. DLo gets to up his trade value, or prove himself too valuable to trade..... Dray get to be a leader on the team and teach these youngins a thing or two about teamwork and defense. Meanwhile we miss the playoffs by a lot, increase our chances in the Lottery and score a talent or two or three that takes us back up on a competitive level for the following year when we are fully staffed.

But, it's likely that Steph comes back in time to for the Xmas game.
It's also possible Klay comes back just in time for a late 8th seed push (assuming we have anywhere near enough wins to even bother trying), or maybe he sits and watches the tank as we trade DLo for expiring contracts and some picks. and ride it out for next year instead.

Wow, that's a surprise.

I still wonder if it's the approach that GS will take though, and what their plan is for the protected draft pick at the end of the year. Nobody like "tanking"... but sometimes it pays to be strategic about these things. Long term, I still like seeing the GS stars get a lot of rest this year and refocusing effort on the future.

Also, how did Final Destination end? How do the Warriors get off that roller-coaster before it's too late?

...

Per Warriors PR, Curry had surgery and will be evaluated and status updated in 3 months... so that 6-8 weeks at most estimate doesn't sound like it's on target.

Source: https://twitter.com/WarriorsPR

Granted, this might've been something he could come back from earlier with a different approach - but despite clear comments that "we aren't tanking" from Warriors brass, there are quieter ways to make sure the team doesn't win too many games in an injury-ravaged season.

I should clarify the reports I was reading were pre CAT Scan, and said surgery would be around 8 weeks.
No surgery would be around 6.

But if Curry has an excuse to sit out till close to ASB, then let the tank commence!! let the Dray & Dlo show begin!!!  Top 3 draft pick here we come. Lol

92 all with 5:08 left in the game. I am glad they came back and a bit of that was making the right passes and being more aggressive on both ends of the floor.

Lucca just took a shot going for a rebound.  His head got sandwiched between 2 Lakers players. I think Howard and Lebron were the two.
