    Harden has finished ahead of Curry in every single award for years, was better at the world cup and has been better so far this season.....

    Mchale should have atleast simulated Dwight's post presence with DMO. It would have slowed the game down considerably...

    i would have gone to hack-a-bogut when we got in the bonus early. At least make Steve Kerr consider benching his only rim protector.

    Tough one. We fought hard and I'm pleased with what I saw from our 2nd/3rd string but just not enough offensive firepower and rim protection to win against the Warriors who are a very good team.

    They were just able to load up on Harden defensively without worrying about anyone else. Combine that with a poor shooting night from guys like Ariza and Papanikoloau and you have a loss.

    We need to get our guys healthy ASAP. We aren't deep enough to sustain significant injuries to this team.

    Statements like this make me chuckle. So Harden outplaying Curry in almost every game the past two years doesn't mean anything, but in this one game where Curry gets the better of Harden it means he's better overall? lol

    No one is going to double team DMO.

    That's the massive difference. When Dwight is out, it makes the game MUCH harder for us in the perimeter

    I am sure Morey can see that the need for back up C is all this team needs. TJ and DMO will be fine. Dorsey and Black need to step up but I am a back up C will be coming by mid December.

    First game where Asik was really missed. Team fought though and there seems to be a bench brewing.

    He'll be fine. Give him a couple months. Has to adjust to the NBA three point line obviously.

    Dwight was out because of the flu.

    Stop reaching. Asik was a cancer to this team.

    Weird.

    Gamethreads are terrible to read, especially after losses...

    In 2 years. And maybe not by then. Thanks for your concern.

    Its disappointing whenever your team loses but I was very pleased with Canaan and Dmo came alive tonight. Games like this can go a long way in helping our depth down the line when players go back to their bench role.

    That's a bit unfair of an assessment. I think playing the GSW is the worst matchup for a player trying to adjust to the speed of the NBA. From what i've seen, his basketball IQ is good. He just needs to figure out the pace of this league.

    Jim158 wants him back in Greece. Isn't that obvious. He is a Greek fan.

    It's time we show growth now, in post game it's time for Harden and McHale to own up to this loss.
