John Dickinson has led this coming back from the locker room after the warriors went 106 to waddle for what was the main thing was a trademark grave error what. What was amazing don't unlock from after react it was drain on green in him almost willing the warriors to a victory in that fourth quarter and leading them to the the 2814 margin. By which they won that fourth quarter and Steve Kurd made the point. They drain on was he was vocal as he often is. Earlier in the game not just in the fourth quarter or going to the fourth quarter. But throughout the game he mentioned this sequence of the first half portray among green was really. He was just imploring the team to keep grinding through. That it wasn't gonna be easy it wasn't gonna be pretty. They were playing so poorly of late that they had to do the dirty work in an attempt to dig themselves out that it wasn't gonna be game where they hit fifteen threes. 163 somebody dated fifteenth three or fourteen threes they wound up hitting fourteen. But it was a game words wasn't going to be that effortless. Game that we've seen so many times in the last. Three seasons where they just run a team out when that when a massive run they shoot. In a 50% from three point range and and they roll it was a game where they had to play defense where they had to do the dirty work and eventually. In the fourth quarter. They figure that out. This is such an interesting period for the warriors because. Most teams go through stretch like this multiple times a year and quite frankly unless you're only team. This is really the first stretch the warriors have had like this. In three years where now they've played him eight to ten games where they're really not on their game regardless of what their record. Has come out through those those ten games I just felt like Ted IE. They they realize that there it a funk. And it. The only thing that matters to them is just try to claw wins out. Because they feel like if they just keep claw and winds out it'll eventually turn the corner. And that's why on the one hand. I don't really think it was. I thought it was more of I thought the score was less important than the way they played tonight because the way they played was. Like they've been playing so that part was a good but I think they look at it saying look we won tonight. So we got back the only track we did play well. But we did enough now we got Orlando comedy and we'll play better against Orlando well beat them by more we'll get things don't have a positive direction. Yeah and I even go back to Steve Kerr in the pregame Mae and encourage diluted to the fact that they were just opened big. Be able to play. A way that they could build toward the next game right and I think you know what we do look at the outcome the fact that they were able to get a win. And the manner in which they did it hit it. Just grit it out playing kind of an ugly style. Which led to the fourth quarter and in slow down Philly get back in the game and ultimately winning at. I think that's something they can definitely carry forward because that's a weighted to the of this team. They can do that and win now way but they don't always do it because they're so skilled. And the shooting is there a lot of nights. They they don't have to they mistaking that they can do it the other way so if you don't have to do without wade and why would why would you try to other Steve Kerr also in the post game press conference made it. A fascinating point which was he believes they inner G. Any intensity will lead to shot making you know they tend to go hand in hand and he thought once they finally got again in the fourth quarter. Then a few of those shots started to fall and the warriors were able to go. That run I also think that. There's a danger. Of putting too much stock in that last eight or ten minutes because you do have to realize this is Philadelphia. And they're not very good team and they haven't been very good lately either the had a nice stretch in January but since January they haven't been very good. They're missing sevens they're miss it and beat. I'm looking at that team right now and I see. So Barry choose a good player got to be a nice player you're much of a little bit old Gallinari by the way. Okafor. Not crazy about but I thought he did enough tonight just because he's the biggest player on the floor. But what I say it is cutting ten McConnell Holmes Henderson let's not. Let's not get too excited over the grip of the Golden State Warriors. Because that team is scoring challenged I did that finally caught up in the fourth. Court at some point you just need to get away and you're right did you figure it out and I think the way they did it in the fourth quarter. Is something that can be carried forwarded and maybe maybe because you get the win the pressure eases a little bit you cannot you make shots against Orlando Orlando. Probably playing even worse than Philadelphia have played but here's here's the there's two sides to look at you can look at it that way but I understand where you're coming from as well you can also look at it. Under the under the lens of our staff Kerr 129. Klay Thompson at 28 you needed twenty. What to go with. Eight rebounds eight assists four steals from Dre my dream six blocked shots and you needed now bars UV ten a nine you beat Philadelphia by two right. Age it is those four players had positive games in positive impacts on the game and it's Steve Kurt pointed out Matt Barnes is a guy that. They're really help them and I don't match you were talking about a couple of the the plays that he made remiss is that Duncan bad passes and he is a risk reward kind of a player. But at his ten and nine is. Three and nine the warriors I'll lose in this game were talking about some completely different. Yet no you're you're right there but I I just think that. You're right Eddie curry has to wait unclear as 28 straight honest when he knew that could beat Philly adult males laughed again. And why is that is not because of one player Kevin Durant. Kevin Durant makes the warriors. A team that's gonna struggle at home against the Philadelphia 76ers. Tee to me there's something more going on it's a bigger phone of course slump than that I don't let's say something. Majors going on without terrain that they've for internal problems I thought of saying I'm just saying they shouldn't be this bad without too. They shouldn't be but if you look at just that the starting lineup Emily mentioned curry Thompson a dream on grain they all had in a positive impacts on this game tonight. Patrick McCaw Zaza Pachulia had may have been the two worst players on the floor tonight. AL on which James Michael Mack adieu he would he struggled in his limited a couple of minutes as well but you look at that. And these are two retarded about 40% you're starting lineup. Right now and it was and I were for truly didn't have it they didn't get much from McCall and that drop off when you look at what Kevin Durant was getting an idea. It just the there's a domino effect to it and then you start to look at all the ancillary pieces all the role players. The warriors are just not getting the contributions from role players. As consistently. Or as significantly as they have in the past he had it all up with the schedule and it's march. And there are a little tired and trying to rejuvenate. And it all exempted to I think things snowball too when you don't win games I really don't win a game like in Minnesota. And then you give everybody that I off the San Antonio so that's a loss all the sudden it adds up. To three in a row it's harder to turn it around. Once you stop having success the word as you used to win that game in Minnesota through everybody relaxes. And then beyond you get almost a free shot at San Antonio. And then you come back tonight you probably playing a little bit better so I think just get in the win. Can turn it the other direction John Higgins and brought to you by Walnut Creek Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram where savings is simple online. At Walnut Creek Jeep dot com this is for both of you. They got the win tonight and as you said met the way it went down but here's something to rant or not to ram. The warriors improved if you can say it proves. 23 and four on the season in games decided by three points or fewer. It's still the game they blow people out believe they don't blow people out there under 500 yet of these games are close again I said to Matt now. You know again I think he could make the case that tonight was a game that they've the they've they've made some shots that they really want it with a exceptional. 28 points. And a big factor in a positive for Danielle Willis had a discussion of the warriors don't when the free throw battle. About are they getting the calls it an argument calls to to get the line more should they not. Star get this treatment stars don't get well tonight the warriors won the battle get the free throw line and it was also a factor in. In determining this game but I think when you look at it yeah I said do you have about four minutes left I said all right. Philly was ahead they won and Iran the warriors went on their run here we are one possession game with four minutes ago. These two games the warriors have been winning right and lest they got an outstanding stellar defensive force performance and they want that getting that defense of performance down the stretch and a the map barnes' three in the corner was big and if that shot doesn't go down. In a game a little breathing room allowed him to play from ahead. Early in the game in just I mean our late in the game and drain on green is. And knows a. Barge hit a pretty boys hit from the we believe quarter it out right that's what I call it because that was where you at the big shot against Dallas. Gave six their. Was just he had a lot of them from that corner and it was season is just that that barrage that night. Andre Iguodala played 33 minutes tonight. So I I would say that's five or six in a row over thirty minutes or five of Joliet one there was at February times I get to one meter to 49 days that and thirty. So clearly something's going on there with it would dollop make it a push I think maybe if Gonzales told curry feels good. Then go ahead and bump them up another 68 minutes a game I don't know why it's a lit. But they need them they need implant more than reality is they need him playing more the other thing you've seen this Bill Livingston only played twelve minutes but. You saw Sean living the world earlier in the game now live in yet then you have been CNN and I think if you need Livingston plan he needed. Andre Iguodala playing a lot because at this point you look down the line and you start to go who could Steve Kirk trust. They'll completely and why am I Clark. I mean I didn't order tickets zero tonight I think ideally. With a rare now. They were dollars and 33 minutes I think in an ideal world Kerr would not raise it with dollars minutes at all. And my call we get some extra shirts. All words would obviously be a factor but I think you're right eight. They need more good players right now they just don't need body Phillies they guys who can help but they grew dolls obviously would. One I think you look at atop the bottom Downey at its. Are the next two that you trust and that's five guys and then everything else is who knows. On a given night Matt Barnes might be that the next guy and the list among the guys that you trust when you think about it because yesterday we eat. Three minutes tonight they don't know yet he he it's hard for Steve Kerr to trust him. Pachulia was pulled off the floor I could Julio is half Pachulia was like oh I pictured it gave up. Six in the first inning tonight and it was the yet to bring that Edward Duncan want to get this out of the fir hiss out of the fresh could have it was like I am sick sick. Also you looked up at seven nothing that I got in the manager's got taken out right. It would end. Age so I mean I think in a perfect old Pachulia is still gonna play a lot but tonight. It it's like a picture again the use that analogy tonight's just don't have it right you didn't have a tonight. Ian Clark. Is another one now to me he's the natural. To the guy you should score the most off the bench. And scored 36 Saturday but the you see kind of the problem he he had no points that I did twelve minutes. That wouldn't be a huge problem if they had other. Scorers coming off the bandage. You don't like last year it it Barbosa had to go for three and thirteen minutes to be like a big deal looks Bates had. Seventeen. So what mattered but you know they don't have explosive scorers off the bench. If you want Clark to be that guy but he's not quite there consist. NC wise yet. Another there's no doubt about it what do what did you make it out of the lineup changes tonight you know the little bit different rotation. More Matt Barnes tonight I think in ways that he can help the warriors he played some four Iguodala played some four it was funny Steve Kerr before the game. He eluded did. But David West might place some four usually likes to play the defied the really was Barnes and Iguodala. That filled the gap. And you also saw I think something that I know Matt we've talked about a lot you some more curry paired with three month green right. And I think that's another way to warriors can maximize. The three stars that they still have you gotta put curry waste three month green. And run that pick and roll and it just it gets curry go indicates an energizing to get straight mine green. His offensive game energized and you look at that the eight assists tonight it's one points. Get the free throw line you gotta put the ball during nine green's hands I think it's times. Especially with the rent out to to maximize the softening. Those are the one thing I saw tonight that I liked and I think he should start making this part of it than the usual rotation with Currie. And that is he usually lets Perry play the entire third quarter. Then he sits during the first six minutes of the fourth quarter usually. Eight took him out with four minutes left in the third. He said because Currie wasn't playing well which I believe. Why would you just start doing that. Kid curry out with three minutes left in the third quarter. Keep them out till the nine minute mark of the fourth then bring it back for because they think could haunt so many times this year that time where where. Now you bring her back with six minutes to go. Which you need to be a hero because you're getting up against the time wise and you're still down a little bit to get him out back out there with 910 minutes ago. Not enough time to get in the groove. Even go through a little dry spell for a couple minutes and still get it back but with six minutes to go fish is more pressure on you because you don't have as much totally died. I agree the United States give regardless of these make it shots or not he's doled. Your best player or your second best player sure best player certainly when to rants out right so having him on the floor is enough to open things up even if he's the guy it's not make in the shop yeah well that's gonna differ warriors wrap up lawyers get the win over the sixers 106 a 104 will be back on Thursday night. How about that. Look forward to seeing you guys and by the way to quick note dream on dream about dream on green amid all the chaos. And Matt Barnes of the steal he misses the dunk about trade my green out of the presence of mind to foul. Up three. And sarge candidate he has backed them a little bit so there was no way he was gonna get a shot off than that situation which you don't lauded fairness. I'm Monta Ellis will foul their two hill just waited till sarge goes up for the game tying three pointer you're just never let it go aria. Nobody committed more dumb and almost a thousand real fouls and late I gave up months and I just makes chair he text me I don't open it all right that's good differ lawyers rattle we'll see if Thursday night fox portrayal together wrestle away right here on I five point seven a game.
