    What a gutsy performance by the 6 who played 35+. Great defense out there. Even GG chipped in on D. But big Props to CP3. Love the heart and smarts he showed out there tonight. What a KING. Thats why we got you. From the 2Q on he was THE man.

    -Draymond Green seems to be assigned to rush the paint every time JH beats his man. He even did this twice when he was on CP3 which lead to open 3s ( he made both). So before we try and get curry or bell switched on JH try to get DG switch onto EG or CP and exploit this. Lets do work early in the shot clock.

    -Gave up 16 offensive rebounds.. have to limit this juggernaut to 1 shot as much as possible. someone is gonna have to help PJ on the boards. Box out more

    -GG has to relax with those weird shots he takes, for some reason id feel much more comfortable with luc. Especially if JH and CP will play 40+. D is the key for that 7th man.

    -Capela has to be more assertive in finishes. Dont be scared of getting blocked. Use your height and finish strong.Play with a mean streak.

    -CP should be playmaking more than isoing. he came up huge down the stretch.

    We are still in this when everyone counted us out. Play together its US VS The World

    Nothing more to do than “kick the tires and light the fires!”

    Where are we going to meet up CLUTCHFANS after we win the championship?

    You can’t ban greatness....you can only hope to contain it.

    It’s a reference to the movie, “Independence Day”

    Capt Jimmy Wilder: “Let’s kick the tires and light the fires, Big Daddy!” —Harry Connick jr.

    Means let’s just kick some ***.

    Rockets spotted the Warriors 12 points.
    on the road to a team that hasn’t lost in the playoffs in the last 16 home games
    Curry shot 46% from three
    Warriors out rebounded Houston 49 to 41
    Warriors had more OREB, 16 to Rockets 8
    Warriors had 89 possessions to Houstons 77
    Warriors led by 12 points with 10:45 in the fourth quarter
    Warriors led by 10 points with 10:22 in the fourth quarter

    Time to stop being afraid of our own shadows. Get out of the house and join the rest of the adults.

    IMO, Gerald Green can be a big factor in Game 5 if A) he defends with the heart he showed in Game 4, and B) he's hitting shots. If those 2 things are happening then MDA can extend his minutes, which would help spread the minutes around more in Game 5.

    we've been switching steph on harden and paul 1 on 1 all series. but off ball switches can work to our favor as well.

    if our wings set some off-ball screens for each other to get the warriors best rim protectors like KD and dray to switch onto guarding the corners it would really stretch out their defense and expose the rim.

    it would also add some motion to our offense that could lead to mistakes by warriors D. maybe someone slips the screen and we get a backdoor cut to an open rim every once in a while.
