    Mchale when coaching against a team on a big run seems to freeze, shorten the rotation and just hope we get hot from deep.

    With the way Kostas shoots the rotation should change him being being the back up 4 , with Dmo at the 5. Black and Dorsey offer nothing.

    Canaan is the biggest bright spot.

    I've seen Dmo have game like he did tonight, he needs to string some together.

    Ariza of old tonight...clank, clank, clank.

    Disappointed with Harden in the second half. He just started jacking up 3's. I get it, Bogut is clogging the paint.

    If both teams played fully healthy, Rox win this. 3/5 of the starting lineup being out is a lot to overcome. Kpap has got to shoot better or they may need to start giving Daniels or Garcia more minutes. Non-shooters on the perimeter are useless in this offense.

    I disagree.

    The GSW are reliant on two shooters. See what happens when there cold? They are down 8 to a Rockets team missing 60% of its starting lineup.

    All tonight proved is that the Rockets missed Howard.

    The Rockets were starting Tarik Black, Cannan, and Pap this game.

    Want to take a guess where those guys played last year?

    Already big timer. Howard would have went to work on Bogut tonight.

    Hey conspiracy theorists, ESPN reported that Howard was out in the first quarter. It's still up on the front page

    McHale has got to go. When the Warriors went on a run in the 3rd quarter, he couldn't think of anything better than chuck up a 3?

    apparently he was held out also because we play in mexico city wednesday, with some promotional media events scheduled for tuesday. probably wanted to make sure dwight would be ready for all that, and also wanted to prevent him from spreading the flu to any teammates as well.

    I'm not worried about this loss, we just need to be healthy for the playoffs.

    This games proves this team can play D with or without Howard. It's crazy how much we have improved on that side of the ball.

    And a round of applause to Cannan who is turning into what we hoped from Lin a real 6th man.

    We were shorthanded but the Warriors did what they needed to do to win. on to the next one. Btw, we are small, and the Dorsey signing sure hurts.

    I just have something bad to say, we should have played more with the inside game of D-Mo.

    Ariza couldn't shoot, neither could Harden or Papanikolaou. Dwight, Jones, and Beverley were out, etc...

    And this game still was tight the whole way through.

    That's a positive sign.

    You're exposing yourself as a fool. McHale didn't take the shots.

    I'll take this lose since it helps players like Dmo and Canaan. I hope they built up some confidence.

    it's easy to blame the coach but he found out last minute his best player was sick and made the team ready defensively.

    And this team is still 6-1

    Angry at the loss, but proud of how well our guys played shorthanded.

    We could've ran a few more plays, gotten some more inside shots, but it is what it is.

    It's hard to win when 3 of your starters are out.

    Good game by D-Mo, great game by Canaan.

    It's a long season, 73-9 is still within reach!!!

    We have the same problems as before the season started.

    Great starters, thin bench, too reliant on 3 point shooting ....some of the best 3rd stringers in the league

    To me nothing has changed. Terry and Canaan proved to be a tad better than expected. Yes but they were never the cornerstone of the defense.
