    I'm not an expert on the playoffs schedule, but...should the Warriors consider losing game 5 at home? Just to shorten the time they'll be without Curry?

    Giving games away is always a risk
    If they finish the Rockets in 6 but Green or Klay gets hurt in that game
    People will be pissed they did not finish in 5

    Heard someone on ESPN say Warriors will play either April 30th or May 2nd. So 2 day difference.

    May 2nd if Blazers Clippers go to game 7. Or if Rockets Warriors go 7
    April 30th if Clips win in 5

    Dumb question that has probably been answered elsewhere: was this the same leg as his sprained ankle?

    We should put an asterisk next to us anyway if we beat the Warriors, went to the Finals or won a title. Would we be the first NBA Team to win a championship as one of the most dysfunctional groups ever to win it all?

    Kobe + Shaq were rather dysfunctional.... but Kobe + Shaq + Glove + Mailman was more dysfunctional and couldn't win.

    ...and the 1995 team was rather dysfunctional considering that Mad Max ditched the team.

    So the Warriors almost need a 7 game series to give Curry more time to rest.

    What will ESPN do? I guess they can always just run Curry highlights and fly the corporate logo at half mast.

    Whoops, my bad. I don't know why I was thinking they won in 2012.

    They'd rather the whole team rest than extend a series. Warriors aren't gonna give up a game.

    Whether they end it in game 5 or game 6 doesnt matter. They have to wait for the portland/LAC to finish. Why risk more injuries with another game? Besides, it will be harder to lose to the Rockets than win.

    That's what I was thinking after I posed the question. That 2004 Lakers had they beaten the Pistons would definitely have been the most dysfunctional group to win a title. Everyone was a damn mess and they just got by on HOF talent alone.

    The 95 Rockets I think really Mad Max was fine til Drexler came in and took his spot. So wasn't it just one person, it wasn't necessary a totally dysfunctional team. Oh and the Horry trade that never was was that year too right? Horry used it as fuel so it didnt necessary make for a total team dysfunction.
