Thoughts on the Night
Let's be serious, my warriors are killllling it right now. They are 6-1 on this road trip with wins over the Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat, and now the Hawks. Curry is back, proving everyone who doubted his ankles wrong. The bench is playing like the best in the league, spearheaded by Green, Landry, and Jack. The Rookies are all showing promise, Green having impact nights every night, Barnes had a very good game tonight, and Ezeli is showing he can be a serviceable NBA center. And David Lee is playing out of his mind right now, putting up 20-10 nights and keeping J. Smith to 1-12 with 3 points tonight. They are 16-8 now and are looking to climb from the 5th spot in the West. This is all with Andris Beidrins at the C spot tonight.
As for the TWolves game:
It is good the see Rubio back on the floor, he is so fun to watch and showed it on his first night back. This game is getting crazy, Fisher hit that big 3 earlier to take the lead then Minnesota tied it and had a couple chances to win the game. Going into overtime.
What are your Thoughts of the night?
Kyrie scored 41
Kyrie with 17 points 2 assists in the last 6 minutes of the game. Mr. Fourth Quarter. (10 pts in the last 55 seconds btw)
But Varejao ruined the performance by missing the free throw that could've tied the game with one second left. Kyrie could've gone for 50 if it went into OT.
I love the Warriors Chemistry. You can see it on the court with how they play, and on the bench watching the game.
Ricky Rubio, first player since 1985 to gets 8 pts, 9 ast 4 reb 3 steal with less 19 min
Rubios return was pretty exciting, but Kyrie dropping 41 and the Cavs still losing to me is the biggest thing of the night. The Knicks didn't even have Carmelo, they're a great team this year.
Derek Fisher dropped 20 points tonight on 5-8 shooting with 3 threes and went 7-7 from the line. Dude still has something left in him, but I have no clue how he's still starting.
T-Wolves got the win without Love, and the Knicks got the win without Melo. Spurs snapped a two game losing streak, and Hamed Haddadi somehow has 8 rebounds and more importantly has somehow managed to get 12 minutes of PT in the Grizz's stacked front court.
Pretty much all of Fisher's ft's were bs. One of the worst reffed games I have ever seen and Fisher is a huge flopper.
If it's one thing a great team does is snapback from a loss, and the Dubs have been consistent in that area. They have only 1 losing streak (2 games) so far this season, and both those L's were back-to-backs.
I think the interior activity on both ends has been the key to the warriors success
draymond green has made nice impact as a versatile defender and ezeli has been a bit of a surprise...
and the knicks need shumpert back badly
