For healing from pro basketball talk at basketball talk incurred before we get to NBA rest and warriors rest. And it's important to look at the warriors schedule the rest of the way I thought this would really come down. 21 game against seen Antonio San Antonio is that a bit of a hick up. Now for the warriors. They still have home games against New Orleans Los Angeles Minnesota. I mean they got some cupcakes Sacramento. Still on the schedule I think the warriors can put this away. And put the spurs behind them. Before the final two with three games of the season do you agree it's card there time we just lost and we'll get back Decker and they go ahead. What are the iceberg that you're you're spot on. Eight. Slightly softer schedule and a little about that and Antonio hit you know Gregg Popovich said he wasn't gonna push for it like that Bob they're couple games back now. That's just can be very very difficult and the makeup it's just even if they win the game in San Antonio they're schedule it's not. Noticed a couple of African gold states the rest the way the warriors should be orbit. Yeah I think the only shot that San Antonio realistically has. It is next week Tuesday Wednesday the warriors play at Houston and at teeny Antonio. The spurs got to hope that they lose both those games that they lose to Houston. On a Tuesday night and then they clip on San Antonio gets the warriors at home and that's a two game swing. In the loss column with the warriors win at Houston on Tuesday march 28. I think it's cruising cruise control from there on out the remaining schedule should be enough to keep Popovich had bad. Exactly Popovich is going to realize pretty quickly to that he's not to get there quickly. Is there. He's not gonna not rest he's not gonna get the but how the so Marcus Aldridge and even wild advocates might soft on the stretched that he knows he's got the rest of the playoffs especially that looks like they're going to be there to see. It is we've discussed before that that much tougher road you're gonna get. Either physically beat up by them as sort have to deal Russell Westbrook and showcasing in the first round. And then you've got that very produced and given the second round so you're gonna make sure his guys are right at the expense of cheeks and you can go state to art. One of the premier NBA insiders joins us Kurt heal and from pro basketball talk at basketball talk. Again more follow on Twitter what we get to NBA rest for players. If there really to have. Halves that it's not about the have nots of the six arrest and players and the pelicans are Reston players other than obviously the two big ones bogey cousins. And Anthony Davis this is really about. Two or three teams would have been telling you this for years card I think your pop can get away with the Steve Kerr and Tyronn Lue. Then everybody's gonna do it because shouldn't Carmelo. Be able to go to Jeff Warner second set looked. I guess I make more money than staff I make more money than all these guys I needed night off we know we're not make the playoffs. And Carmelo can fight that fight because of dry you can't get the night off why shouldn't Carmelo on a team has no shot at the playoffs. What exactly besides if if what you are saying is true and if DeMarcus Cousins want to light off to get to technical. But for the rest these guys you know that rarely especially in the warriors case you know from a couple which orbit the most of these. It rarely comes from the players occasionally the players will go. I'm a little beaten worn down confused and off but most of the time. Because these guys weren't all that can stop during practices because their marker so closely. They've got analytic technique you know create greater local slower means. Clearly gotten tired legs let's give him and not often stretch we get united stop in a row like they had. He didn't light up at the end of the road trip becomes home like we days off and gotten gains home and suddenly looks fine again. They know they practice stuff they know how it works so it's usually almost always the team it's very rarely the player out for the night out which are right man. Guys guys not let her teens are still out than it ought it's just that nobody cares and frankly people aren't as concerned about the big teams left on national how. Her Dylan is our guest on let's keep those with the warriors too when I look at their schedule. At the end of the year when they put the lakers at home the last game of the year they'll have the last most likely clinched. Although I haven't clinched this would be a great night for the warriors to take off. The lakers are marquee team are much more famous than the warriors ever dreamed of being near the lakers just like the Celtics. On Wednesday April 12. A lot of our listeners who are listening now only have a ticket to that game. A warrior fans they do not. Have tickets. To the opener against San Antonio they don't have tickets that they've done the second half that's the game that dad bought for his son and daughter to go to. What should curt dorm and I'd like that the game won't matter should he played the warriors for ten minutes or against suck it up and rest for a does all stars. I think you're going away and use it to concern for the league and will vote for a couple of minutes it's. You know it's not the worst idea in terms of right especially warriors and the cavaliers. And some of the only players. I don't get to seek Kevin Durant and I'm bond ticket I can afford tickets and chips are expected to take my eight games like he does see. Corey or LeBron or whoever it is particularly on the road. Like the end of the season and they're not there that is a concern. That we. If I'm current still thinking big picture I get it to the championship. Those guys. Not played most of the pushed back quick with camp but when it about this when you that you well OJ imminently about that for a while. Action this start happened to ABC yes because it. To road games. Would they do they do the players in the league will not believe the players. And the general managers that they care more about TNT. And ABC ESPN or. It's just I don't stock caused Mankins opened up the Adidas. I think they honestly I don't think they care too much about which one it is I think it just at the tightening up a bit certainly. Certainly players have been arrested on Thursday night it's just that Saturday night games were getting a little hard because cook. ABC slot at those gains since late January into the you know what used to be there primetime college football slot. Now here comes the NBA after bowl season and like it would put these guys in the air. And the last two weeks the big stars don't show up and I think that yet ABC would stick but I don't know that it's. Team specific so much as schedules specific in both cases and particularly the worst case. And just like we put a lot of difference it was eight games in thirteen days or something that your game and like you know. No and I think the league that's what we deal with desk if you're gonna cry again about what a playoff game and put it in primetime slot like that. You've got to give guys on both teams will rest leading up to its or or aunt or after so that they are not treated that's. Yeah I disagree with I don't think these guys need rest on the stand behind I don't think they need rest and they have days off they have an off season and a half times they have timeouts. That play a timeout sloppy game to get rest and on top of that they don't play. Every night back to back to back and this is what they get paid to do I believe that. West should be for injured players not tired players that the definition to me I'll never change on that. When you need rest it's because you're tired you must have time off when your injured I think the league don't fall and got to run your card is gonna have to decide. What's the deal is it about injuries. Or is it about rest and as you say maybe not having enough rest leaks to injury. That'll be the debatable topic going forward at basketball talk all talked and actually my friend take care. Record deal and that's an important point when we deal with the rest what do you believe you know if if a guy's really rundown. I think is prone to getting hurt.
