I expected both Home teams to win G3.
GSW hasn't had the killer instinct this year.
And their bench is iffyville.

With that said, right now, GSW is up 3 after a huge 3Q, and essentially POR's season comes down to One Quarter.
Interesting.

Green Day having a huge game.

Judging from this game, GS should hope Durant doesn't come back. Wow...that's the fire they used to have...

Missed the 1Q and saw patches until the last 1/3.
Both teams shuffled their starting lineups.  Though Dame Jones lasted just 3 mins, in a foul a minute outing.

Anything happen to Iggy or was McKindredspirit just more effective?  McK had 9 boards in 21 mins, and hit a big late 3 which was exactly an Iggy shot.  Finished with a whopping +24.
Usually Iggy is a pretty key catalyst, and a low stats +/- darling.

POR scored 37 in the 2Q and 33 in the 2nd Half.
So Meyers Leonard started.  Guess they couldn't play Kanter .. .
I always like My Leonerd, but his defense kind of sucks.  Always seems to be half a step slow.  He did have one play under 2 mins where he really stayed on Scurry at the 3-point line.  That was good.  He's the kind of guy I wouldn't mind picking up on the cheap once his $11M contract finishes up.

Lillard 5-18, 5 turnovers, got smothered all night.
-23 in 40 mins.  Which means POR outscored GSW by 12 in the 8 mins Lily sat.  Not a good enough team to W without their best player coming through.  Search that soul, young man.

Ja needs to take Dame and Scurry out to dinner as soon as he signs his rookie deal. Hat tip to Steve Nash. Ja can buy him dinner as well.

I was doing stuff while watching the 2Q & 3Q.
But seemed like the refs were calling things really tight.
Little bumps were being called.

POR missed 13 FT's.
One thing bugging me all through these playoffs has been teams missing FT's when down in the 2nd half.  McC had a 1 of 3 trip.  Unacceptable.
[even when GSW was down, Klay missed a FT as they were trying to close the gap]  Edit: Was Scurry after a made 3.

My other all season complaint is time management
Down 9 and 45 secs left.  They let GSW inbounds easily, let Scurry dribble cross midcourt unmolested.  Why concede?  Even a straight 24 violation, = down 9 21 secs left.  Done.  Pressure the inbounds.  Go for a steal.  Trap.  Try to get a steal or backcourt violation.  Play to Win.

Well we agree on that.
Reggie Miller, 8 points 9 seconds.
The best way to prepare for high pressure time management comeback situations is to go full out every time until it's over.
That's why Pops was so disgusted with his team's Game 7 last 28 second/4 point down fiasco.
It's just another basketball situation. You plan for it. You prep for it.
Giving up does not sit well.

Bingo.

Unless Walton-Lucas-Hollins and Twardzik are ready for G4, series ended last night.

So long ago, it's easy to forget just how great that team was, predecessor to the 80s Celtics teams and these Warriors in terms of team play, ball movement, off ball movement.

Absolutely fun to watch this: https://youtu.be/7vTGoG53bF4

Yup. Walton's briitle bones probably kept Portland from winning more championships, but that '77 championship team played beautiful basketball.

I don't feel any better about the Celts crappy performance against the Bucks, (losing 2 at home!) but the Bucks dominance tonight puts a little different spin on it. Monster message game against a very good team.

Ok, do they beat GS in 5, 6 or 7?

Giannis is SUPERMAN ⛹🏾‍♂️!!!

if KD plays I think the Warriors win in a 6 game series, if he's out or playing hurt, I think the Bucks can steal it in a long series, 6 or 7 games.

I don't think the Warriors are better deferring to KD rather than riding Steph and Klay.   They won 73 games without him.  ANd they haven't lost since he went out.

Almost forgot some NBA Trivia:

The Scurry Bros combined for 53 points the other game.  2nd most ever for a pair of brothers in a playoff game.  Which brother-combo holds the record for most points in a single playoff game?

Bonus: Which pair of brothers hold 3rd place now?

(and yes, both brothers had to have been in the same playoff game and played)
