The 82.6% (38 of 46) free throw shooting was good progress from last year.

The team that was 5th in the league last season in turning the ball over uncharacteristically turned the ball over a lot?


Yep. GS has always been loose with the ball. Our guys were especially active with their hands last night and were getting lots of deflections.

we are GsW’a nightmare. That chucking 3 style of theirs is not effecient because every long rebound from 3s will be an easy lay up for us.


They had the highest FG% last season by a large margin (ditto for 3pt%). They were the 3rd most efficient offensive team last season. Lets not make up some imaginary scenario where they are inefficient offensive team.

Yes, the long rebounds make them vulnerable to a team that can get out and run. However, at the end of the day the math is still 3>2, and they'll trade 3s for 2 point fast break points all game long and over the course of a series that strategy will win. That isn't to say this isn't a real, exploitable vulnerability, but it doesn't change the reality that they're always going to be a very efficient offensive team.

It was a really good game, I'm glad we beat them, but I'm not going to read much into it until we're consistently competing with them.

Great to have Mr. DB doing the breakdowns!!!

The vets are showing what it will take to win consistently and in pressure games with high expectations while the young players will bring the enthusiasm that comes with youth when the legs are tired

Fascinating watching this story unfold during this season.
