    Only 18 shots?

    And 9 from distance?

    That's a typical Harden night.

    Harden Basemore Wiggins Draymond Wiseman
    Oubre Looney Paschal Lee

    will have a bettter record than Dallas

    switch Jarden and Curry in 2014-2015
    and Harden is a champion
    while not sure if Curry gets to the playoffs

    Which also requires you to be an elite playmaker and carry a heavy load. Curry is load managed for a reason.

    Harden averaged 23 shots (13 from distance) and 11 free throws per game in his last two seasons with us.

    Curry averages 21 shots (12 from distance) and 6 free throws per game this season.

    Definitely not a typical night for either the Rockets Harden or this season's Curry.

    then curry should demand the ball from draymond and do it himself, it would make the warriors harder to guard

    Touche.

    But those numbers were skewed because of the circumstance of the last 2 years and 3 shots less is not that much of a variance.

    wouldnt shock me

    adam silver has destroyed the very fabric of the nba game. when david stern left as commishner the nba was surging in viewership , and they were able to get intrested tv partners to buy in

    but adam silver has done too much damage

    load managing healthy players( when fans pay to see the stars)

    the all star game with this garbage team giannis vs team lebron nonsese. the east and west format was fine as is

    the play in tournament is a horrible idea.. 16 teams is enough( although i do like the potential idea that was floated around years ago where it was a 1-16 format tournament. Where east and west didnt matter

    being too political and at the same being hypocrites when it comes to fining nba players based on race( meyers leonard this year vs montrezl harrell in the playoffs last year againist luka)

    the game is too far gone now, and last year they were talking about adding a midseason tournament

    edit: also this might not be a big deal, but i miss seeing the logo on the court where it says eastern confernce finals or western confernce/ nba finals. It adds much more value to the game you are watching. I dont know whose idea it was to remove that logo from the floor

    The 3-game showdown vs Zion begins tonight, starting with a B2B in NOLA. Could get tight for that 10th spot quickly.

    Warriors might be the 8th seed by the end of the night if they win and Grizzlies lose. Curry is definitely the MVP.

    Curry should not even get 1 first place MVP vote. You gotta be kidding me with this take. Harden did this for an entire season and had the Rockets as 4th seed and still didn't win MVP. Going by how the voting has always been it should go to either.

    CP3,
    Mitchell,
    Jokic,
    Embiid..


    if Curry can win jt this year might as we give it to Westbrook again. He's averaging a triple double.

    By leading his team to 8th seed?

    I play along what does he have over Jokic?

    Or Giannis?
