    Eh, I've ordered three pieces (a varsity and 2 leathers) so maybe ~$1,800 but this was during its heyday. As good as their product is, no way I'd feel comfortable dropping $2,000 in one go. In that sense, it is nuts.

    gsw clearly has a gameplan (let lebron shoot. noticed guys staying back and going under screens), but lebron's vision is amazing, cleveland defense is surprisingly really good, gsw missing open shots, kyrie looks healthy

    Well a few plays later he got fed by Curry for an open dunk, and lost the ball on the gather. Guess there was a good reason

    Great game. I have no dog in the fight. Tied after 3. Logically GS has an edge at home, but LeBron might be ready for a big 4th. Could go either way.

    warriors bench could all start for the sixers

    every goddamn possession is lebron ISO, mozgov or TT offensive rebound, then lebron ISO again


    as much shit as blatt gets he's still a pretty damn good coach. they're trying to get that switch with curry on lebron so hard


    SUCK IT LEBRON

    GSW really loves going for the highlight plays at home -- for better or worse.


    Indie, were you nervous at the 2 chances Cavs had to win the game at the buzzer (LBJ and Shump if I remember correctly)????

    I woulda been as mad as hell if either of those shots went it haha

    Two points in OT for the Cavs though??

    Easy internet troll answer will be "LBJ choked" (which I don't mind) but that GSW small-ball blitz had a lot to do with it.

    honestly the amount of defense they get out of that small ball team is insane. and they're unstoppable on offense. i notice kerr always go to them in crunch time

    Pretty stressful to watch as a warriors fan when we are the favorites. Thought Bron had the edge going into the stretch run with Dray close to fouling out and the Warriors relatively flat so needless to say I was ecstatic about overtime. Sorry to see that Kyrie might be hurt. Maybe Bogut too? Not sure what happened there and Kerr hasn't said anything yet in post-game.

    If Klay or Steph can start hitting threes I just don't think Lebron would have much of a chance to win even with Tristan Thompson clearing offensive boards like he's playing against kids.

    I should have thought of it earlier, but now that Cleveland is reduced to iso-Bron (even more so now that Kyrie appears to be pretty hurt), the Warriors are ideally suited to defend him. They can switch Iggy, Klay and Green on him - all of whom can bother him (yes I know he scored 44 but it wasn't efficient). Even Barnes can step in from time to time.

    Only problem is that the Cavs will kill them all series on the boards

    I'm actually hesitant to call them small ball considering their deceptively crazy length :marchal:


    Great contributions from Iggy this game (Green goes without saying...five fouls and still getting shit done)

    still relatively efficient 18/38 (47%) is pretty good especially for a volume shooter. like 1 shot off from 50%
