So those Pacific division titles yes three in a row it's nice and look at the helicopter was when you look at the history of the warriors. You know obviously not something that they've done before but the big takeaways from tonight is their starting dean. A little bit of separation again for that top spot in the Western Conference in the spurs they tripped up last night they lose at home the Portland. And the warriors find a way to win that game against Philadelphia even though they didn't play well in the Nate back it up tonight. Within impressive win they did tonight what I think everybody was looking for them to do. It blowing out this Orlando team in and I'd ask Steve Kerr the post game press conference they say I said did you guys need a blowout win. And he said he expected. This team Tate to play better and build off flow of the game on Tuesday night it's Philadelphia he thought once they got through that. Grind it out got to win got another day of practice that tonight would be a night and this week at home. By the end of day you start to feel like all right this looks more like the war. Or yours again. And I think that's where we're headed to tell you the truth I think their starters settle in. To play it without the rain I think they're gonna. Finish relatively strong. But then whichever derail it comes back assuming he will come back which we all do. Then they're gonna have to make another adjustment and then the questions going to be how healthy is category. If Kevin during its. The old Kevin Durant the warriors etiquette the prohibitive favorites to win it. This year he's not if if we exceeded its first set and gave back he's not a 100%. That may be all bets are off by. Still under the assumption. Now working under that that. The risk probably gonna come back the last few games of the regulars. I really think that's going to be case and ideally we'll have that first series to. Get re acclimated and it will be a series in which they're tested. It looks like it may be Denver. And when he talked about that and JD speak to this people have liked as well he'll be back. What this is gonna come back and let's say like the last three games the regular season he's put up 38 minutes I mean it could be. Skip out there it's shots get the flow because you can't really simulate a real game. When you talk about practice any time scrimmage work so it's only actually went to get any Bentley you come back and be there for ten minutes tickets so you legs you know. Yeah I think that's the perfect scenario for the warriors had down the stretch they get it going again really they have a difficult week. They go on the road they go to Oklahoma City and they they played Dallas. And then they'll come back home and and did they have a tough stretch the following week when they go to stated Tony you know. They put Sacramento before that the go to San Antonio and Houston Houston's the first of ActiveX and it Tony back to back. And then they play Houston and Memphis here over weakened Friday Sunday to close out march it began April and I think that. Other than that week the warriors are set up nicely right now. To go on a little bit of a run in the best case scenario I'm talking about is. They're up. Three games with three to play let's say and and have that the number one spot all but clinched. They gain that separation and then they can work Kevin Durant in slowly because those market beat teams. That they need to win and they're gonna be some games you know get some lesser opponents the lakers are in here the final night. Of the regular season Utah's a tougher opponent that's that's in that. Potential stretches well the pelicans are here the final couple games of the season I believe also so you look at that you start it added up. And it gives the warriors a nice almost perfect scenario to to work him back yet. That's the ideal way it would have. At the exist in the end to a point it's not again in the groove and now it accurately I mean may not need for the first round please think it days offered at things like that of the policies I had asked him because. Some it was said today Ethan Sherwood Strauss at some banana podcast out of Chester today or use. Says it's seeing things how he felt about the warriors looked at the warriors like you perceive the warriors late late he's clutch games not coming through. And it's that there's an unnamed can't name the players and name player. Who has been bringing up to him that you know the problem with the warriors not basketball there is problem. I don't mean it said today seems like this kind of comment it was like up our roundtable podcast thing I didn't know this. If there is a player doing it this player understands. I'm not gonna take it to a local. I'm a ticket to the ESPN. Is the SE is being guys national. And number. Bay Area news group not gonna go to in Omani on cius and not anecdotes it is. Chronicle. Lever if this is going line went to the national Ike the national guys getting it out there it seems and it was pretty much under the radar with it. Now I think tonight's that the panic game that that helps erase that if there is some questioning. About you know what the warriors can ultimately you want to get to the post season are. Or what pitfalls me before you know be before them. You know that might knock them out then I mean look I I think that's probably. More of the general conversation. That it is a player look and it gets up and out and I think that's a reporter having relationship. With a player in their pocket ball in the in the context of that. You know. It may be they what do you think that what you think the issue it CO. And reporter Earl stated and just gathering background. And it's while we got problems of that and it's this this in this it's not basketball maybe it's. Toughness maybe it's. It now. Just different players have a different goals maybe. You know there's a lot of different things can be but I think tonight is that night it that quelled a lot of that this week you know if this team wins. All that's desk and it died down raised Taylor. Greatest deodorant split in LA comes up wait you go on the road trip that is struggling you lost five that is definitely come back home he went a couple. And you get a little bit of a streak on and all that stuff goes away and I think you know tonight just kind of bring it back to the game tonight. In the warriors. Steve Kerr said that their number one goal entering by agreeing echoed this coming out of the Philadelphia game was to take the defense from the fourth quarter. Which was outstanding and a quiet the beginning of the game they've they've preached yesterday and today they wanna get off to a hot start. Defensively and set the tone they were able to do that. It led to collate Thompson get some open looks from deep in clay Thompson got in that rhythm that we've seen him get India where he can go off. For 20/20 530 sat there in the one game against Sacramento and a quarter. But to a man they believe that the defense is what got him at that point so. He'll fewer missed assignments that are energy they didn't allow a team to get comfortable early on and they took the key to Orlando team that was. All the Orlando needed was a reason. Delayed down and the warriors put Donovan those first couple minutes and Orlando said. That's good for us on broad road trip to seal later. I mean. I thought effort wise Orlando. That was the worst games. That's. Played against the wars. And that team. I don't like it team at all. I don't like that to be a little bit can you imagine their vows games are right now well. Until after you lose in Sacramento homeless waited and won one game went out DeMarcus Cousins in at a nine though the one I would like to series. So I posted to BJ Armstrong before the game. Straight Mike green's agent. Obviously former Chicago bull election plate for the warriors. Back in the day in. He asked basically what you think you were here okay executed. There are a little trouble and he said why ice well played well. Who goes out there ray it's going to be when he comes back blah blah blah and I think you know they're not playing well right now. And he basically said. That I heard this but that. You couldn't have picked a worse time of the season. For the risk to get hurt. You could have picked a worse game. For the season for Korea to give her a thing of the warriors are making any excuses there. But the fact is they lost Kevin Durant. At a point this season where they were gonna struggle anyway. Went before Kevin ray horror. I remember saying to JD. Lose two or three games the next day because they were finish up with San Antonio that was going to be a brutal game. As soon as you look at their five game trip that. Had two back to back that they had come back for the boss gave in had a few losses written all over it and without the sure enough it was probably their worst stretch of basketball season. If there were it comes back. Nobody's gonna remember this date rate a eight game stretch. That remembers is going to be a blip. And they and the reason it's also so perhaps. That would you use both teams have to be year. Lawyers lightly at one after three years. While this was tonight word they were able to get they were able to get some production had. It had been there they gets outside Pachulia. A double double and it down which Steve Kerr said loses it was a goal of the warriors. Now to give him a double double and get their act up and get a good dunk data darker Leon you know or John in the game and look Pachulia. Actually apple we talked about it and he got pulled out of the game he was struck on the Internet and it gets Philadelphia he got. Ellis like the picture it gives up six in the first letting the managers got to come out and get them and that's it for you tonight. While he was able to bounce back in and play well he's a policy team but to get it was taken some heat from the warrior fans you know Andre Iguodala. You know he's dad and I think c.s does he sees the light at the end of the tunnel and I think it's. Win and a championship yes but I also think it would policy and the potential of a new contract so this guy's going to be a free agent and he sit march. And all the sudden he dumped the ball he's fly it up and down the court explain energized defense. In the warriors. They may have it's almost like. You know they they found the guy L tunnel late trade gap in such great dollar of the way he's been quiet. Though the last couple of we ID eight ease bats and stuck them in the past it's just you don't know what when he's got the energy. When he's got the energy to warriors are a different team and Al east get up there a little bit but I think he sees that. He's got a few more years. In the tank to the warriors are glad to have it here for these last three months. You know these tees straights product like I'm six offers some. Very bad memories. It may. I note that line. The heck do you you don't use sit outside OK I don't like to be that guy in the eye on Iraq I don't know I post gave you guys. Not gagged action warriors at the way at one to eight and 92 got asked to use time and it's out. BJ Armstrong line something interesting about right here points. So you recall by apple and Azubuike there. Picture credit. Warriors thought the call Collette he's sitting at the second and third quarters tonight. Nice job. Nice to hear it 122 to 92 sides back to BJ Armstrong has now agent was terrific player now an agent is a role player. Brings. Him look he's got to bring. I've seen and he even ask you. If why would he ask. I'd go from 1995. Well I understand and talked basketball over the unit that Golden State Warriors are role he Wednesday. I. Actually. Wrong about that. He's not a guy who always. You once information he doesn't want you for me he's one of those guys you got like to tell you much but he wants to hear why. You think about the team he's always do that he's always asked media guys what they thought of what's going all with the team. Because he knew what was going all TVs were no other people say he thinks the warriors. There's a surprise. And Heidi says that so. If he thinks there. They go how Orlando with the with the six guys on the court after timeouts at six. Paying attention and miscommunication. Between the head coach in and the players. Amid a really goes both ways him and I got to think that that Frank Vogel says hey your router your hand. You and eat either rye it's players not listen or. Maybe he didn't maybe he it is clear that there's only two sports. Where you can have too many men on the field football hockey. Have you ever seen ten guys on the baseball field. Well it and it might have. Happened during any break that you figured out key I have two guys are you might have a guy got the left field and that a gaffe about don't have right shortstop doesn't happen now that that's that definitely doesn't. Now 6 guys that I am excited thinks he's in the game starts jogging out here a year year out of the game there repeat we. We hit four there were hailed when it's hot in line changes again it's not. That can happen in this case six guys wore the look that we haven't talked about is. Lot of good things happened tonight obviously words to him by third to get back on track they're having more fun clay gets actually double double. Curry did not break out of his three point shootings while two for seven. Down at 39%. Low 39%. Nine straight games he just to hear that he had shot right Friday here. From beyond the arc he had. All the time of the world he took it and as soon as he let it go you could tell was off line. And it's just so rare for him to take shots were when you see him out of his head you know right away it's not going. This is so rare but they're more more more frequent this nine game stretch. Coal permit you know what's go to all I've got our tickets start to be unrealistic to think he's just get a heard it all on and finish the season shooting 48% from three point range I don't well and then you have. You couple that with the fact that it didn't look quite right he said after the game that everything was all right with the the right ankle that he week in and speaker said he talked to a man. And he said now he's fine and obviously he came right back into the game for her he had everybody hold their breath there. Health per minute anytime he. Feels a little something and I mean he went right to the locker room right and everybody was cannot add to wonder India was it a foot is it an ankle you know like immediate it. It's been forever since he's at regular ankle injuries that matter I mean you know. LA UB he ankle was it that was a major deal. Ankles fruit for years we were talking about that before you came on and one of the things we forgot about curry he's missed fifteen games last five years. So he's basically been an Iron Man. Since his second year in the league what that is its foot problems you looked a little off tonight I think maybe maybe that there early exit. And he comes back you know maybe that robot he looked off. I say daddy ends up with 25 point video is it well that I and yet the only thing you do well to shoot the the other equally great I thought. It was Agassi so that it's three point shooting. Forget to tell you mr. 45 yesterday which it if you you're gonna start forget things like that. I feel like I've just heated up on the back nine and mailing your well the thing about Terry goes on the outside there. Like I am I pat fine. There's no question about it it's it's been a fun ride so we'll see maybe a slowdown amid don't know how to do it slowed down but I mean let's. Now pace I say it again. But you gotta let let's not call the career he has got to I think it's it's it's you know it when people struggle for a long period of time. And it doesn't matter what sport it is when you struggle for a long here you're human being. And you can sit there you can say all all the right things bill is on Dan Patrick where he said. I'm not let's. Mom might yet. You know said he doesn't use that term yet as I do I use it beauties that want you go to Ehrlich. The middle part of the game is a huge part about being a professional Lafley. And it's clear that this it is where he is as Matt says it's been an Iron Man. He's in his prime said Matt in his prime right now he's having the worst. Three point forget the slop the entire season. Is his worst behind the arc in his career during his prime. But the way what is makes the night was a very totally. Different and there is every action by him for that sell like he said army. There's now why I mean it's very odd. You know I think is some times. Yeah TT. Use a little bit of the baseball analogy and lots of times if if that if the hitter as an incredible season. Or or maybe two incredible seasons where you you'll look back to the numbers and you go man every time that gang. You know hit the ball hard won and a B and appease him like you. Eventually it kind of comes back eventually let that there's a little bit of a law of averages over. A number of seats as they say it evens out. Curry it could be a little bit of an evening from there wow he hit so many shots the last couple years ago. That is it nap at any great shooter at that he's been the best shooter ever Bollywood is safe bet if he was like. Last year which is same as 45 a point whatever was five point four okay. That would be and dropping out of 4041. The fact that you're now in a range of on leader. 4039. Dropped to 38. That would be the thing from mean that. In the prime of his career. That number is the worst of his career if we're used a baseball analogy if you're always hit 300. And analysts that want your primary victory to nine what you're easily hit. You know like Tony leading by three could be used to beat 270. But I else I think we're. What we're really look at that is last year was staffed curry hit 390. Like George Brett hit that one year and this year guess what he's backed down with 323. I mean that's the way I look at it 323 still darn good obviously it's incredible. But. 390 we have to realize maybe not gonna hit 400 threes in the year anymore because. Because it could be done in one time and exactly or do about it at first bad a year he's supposedly happening legally get reporters. Leads the league reporters may this year. What's interesting now is is how bad his percentages and since two grant got her. That's true well warriors are built this team is it's just it's a different team leaders coming back to that. You know this is not the strength in numbers warriors where it was the three guys. And a bunch of bench players that can do it on it on a different night pitches up and down there's been nights of their pitches help them. But there's also nights related don't get anything from and this team is. And a lot of that is because they changed the pieces. And they changed the pieces because they wanted to get to have under ten. And so this team is built around having four stars. So. If you take one day. It it changes the whole thing I think we're just were used and what we saw the last two years in just one. Well oiled machine this warriors team was. It's different now their bill. They got Kevin Durant and make life easier for staff Kirk Reid because the rest of the player or. So now predictable way and it's a different cast it pakistanis keep combat the effective everything else. Changes with the ran out there. He's acted. Now looks that he was getting with the rain with. With the ran out there. So I used at any time it's real simple and you know some people say excuse or whatever now it's just this is a different. Team it's like it it's it's just different. You know this analogies that make everybody understand there's certain cocktails that are made. Then have a lot of different ingredients. If you take one of those ingredients out you'll notice that this taste different. You'll still drink it lets you know that they're different MIA can be pretty good. At times yes but at times. It may. Put you over the yet. Immediately it's differently tastes it's different it's just it's the look at me sit here tonight at a date they they got the win but it's still. We're in a situation there. We're gonna now until Kevin Durant come back. Until they start hammer and people without Kevin Durant where we talked about the same stuff what I. I think to assert state Yancy and look. The bucks a company in the box in awhile but that's warriors should win. The may be grind it out like it did the Philly game. Playing it at a higher level sheer patient when. It got to go to Oklahoma City they're gonna play at the ranch and that's going to be a tough game that's a tough game. The warriors should have enough to figure out awaited beat. Each they had enough to beat Sacramento. In here next week on fry in the you'll look at that that we that follows the Sacramento gain. That's the week where if there's going to be in it's it's those games in the game against Oklahoma City. Those of the gains. Than if this thing's gonna go awry game that's when it's gonna happen because that's going to be before the rain comes back I'm talking about Memphis is going to be in. And they're gonna go to. Houston and San Antonio on a pack it back. And then they're gonna come back home in Houston it's going to be in your weight and form in the gonna play the wizards are one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. It's that stretch. What was that five games. That's the stretched that it's gonna decide. On the warriors can get this once seated be 23 games up with two or three games ago or whether or not it's gonna look maybe like he did. Two weeks ago. Well that's got to do it for lawyers wrapped up the blowers with the way and at. Over the Orlando Magic 122 to 92 you guys will be back on Saturday. Yeah nine to noon. Full daylight savings time means that. We get our third hour back because the a's games down in Arizona they start one that shows at noon instead of eleven so instead of 9/11 were back. Nine to noon more excited about it and then. Will be out here for the game against Milwaukee on Saturday on the back tomorrow night we'll have our hot stove league showed that Roberts from seven and nine acres towns and show. That's added to hear from oracle make sure it's an all tomorrow's all school hours from the NCAA tournament. Warriors at the way and Youkilis wars rampant right here on night five points.
