    I ironically found this little gem on a GS site. I noticed Prigs did this a couple of times when we were outmanned in transition. I don't know why they didn't utilize it more. You simply foul one of their guys to stop their transition, which is where GS kills teams with wide open 3s. Apparently it was pretty effective for Orlando in a game earlier this year. I'd much rather give 2 shots to one of their poorer FT shooters than let Curry get a wide open look. He must shoot like 70% on wide open looks. It's absolutely absurd.

    Just follow Grizzlies' plan. They led 2-1 at some point in that series....

    Ahh yes. Just bring in Tony Allen.

    If I recall correctly, the Grizz double-teamed Curry close to the half court. It seemed like the Rockets went with a similar tactic yesterday at times and forced him to give the ball to Barnes or Green. I could be wrong.

    You CAN foul off the ball. Hello, McFly.

    I wish we could get our hands on an Avery Bradley in the offseason...

    Having additional guard defenders is a plus in this perimeter orientated league!

    I can't quite recall when exactly that was but I think it was after game 3 and right before game 4. But even if I'm wrong you're right for sure. It was definitely at some point in the series.

    I think the 2nd round had 2 or 3 teams winning 3 games in a series therefore turning those series around that they were trailing behind in.

    How to stop the splash brothers?

    Keep posting videos of all the Warriors illegal screens on social media and hope the NBA decides to do something about it.

    Curry is a good enough shooter, he doesn't need the help of the illegal screens.

    I hate to say it, but repeat 1st half of game 4.

    I was shocked at how often Curry and Thompson were wide-open on the wings for shots. Hell, make Bogut beat you and forget about sagging on offside defense.
