    It happened early in the 4th quarter when Harden went to the bench and the 7 point lead spread to 13 really fast.

    If the differential between those 2 teams is just 0.5-3 pts......then 13 pts is close to dominating.

    I just posted this in another thread but it's more relevant here.

    We got taken out of our game tonight. Harden letting Curry drive by forced unnecessary rotations from other players.

    Basically, your flaws get displayed whenever you play an excellent team who knows how to exploit your flaws.

    GSW forced us into four 24 second violations.. They were fighting over the picks and allowing us to get the switches with 9 seconds left on the clock.

    We need to get into the sets faster to force the defense to converge early. It's not an asset when the ball gets kicked out to Tucker in the corner with 2 seconds left on the clock.

    Give them credit for taking us out of our game. We need to run those guys off the three point line like they did to us. Don't let Klay go off and continue defending Curry the way we did (everyone outside of Harden).

    Clint needs to stay in the game and so does Ariza. I love Luc and he played poorly tonight but he's not the reason we lost.

    We were getting into our sets too late. It starts with JH and CP3. Come on guys - we can do this! We are amazing on the road and can definitely take a game or two in Oracle.

    The team loses focus after making big runs.

    In the closing seconds of the first half we got a 3 point lead again and then on a fast break they found a way to leave Klay wide open.

    So open that PJ Tucker was sad, put his head down and started walking to the baseline before Klay even took the shot.

    These guys just can’t play defense for 48 mins
