Have known this all along. If Curry is not shooting he is basically a liability. Unlike elite players like Kobe / Wade  ... his game is one dimensional.

Curry will get his regardless, I'm focused more on Thompson playing well. 

Barnes has finally arrived but Thompson needs to stay with the momentum he had in the other series.

Jack is a good weapon despite his ball stopping but Klay or Curry need to have a good game regardless, both are off today unfortunately. 

Golden State is gonna have to take their home game and win in San Antonio in the seventh game.   Exciting series.

Ha! Weak try majesty. May be wrong on games but I'll be right about the winner of the series and everything else.

I'll take it. I fully await the excuse train from you when golden state loses the series. You were the one making outrageous and unfounded claims about the Spurs not being able to handle the Warriors at any position.

Hilarious once again.

The Spurs are sitting these kids down and slamming a pacifier into their mouths. Golden State needs to attack the paint, I facepalmed at seeing Jack pass up a layup just to swing the ball back out for a three.

I don't know about experience being a major factor for these Spurs, in the past years have been bounced by very young and not playoff expereinced teams in OKC and Memphis. Besides, like all jump shooting teams, when they are hot they can devastate any team, but when they are cold it is easy to just write them off. The first 2 games were an example of this for Golden State.

Sad, weak game from Golden State's starters. I won't say the series is over of course, but if Curry and Thompson don't show up like this again it's over. But as long as they use this year and learn well from it, it doesn't upset me too much. Keeping things in perspective, I didn't think the Warriors would make the playoffs this year, didn't know if they'd get more than a few wins vs. Denver, and getting even one win vs. San Antonio was something I didn't expect either. So looking at the big picture they've done a lot and moving forward, they can be a force. Few teams make it to the Finals/Conference Finals their first year making the playoffs =/ (the 2007 team was completely different lol). But watching Curry and Thompson just disappear is frustrating.

Golden State has a lot to learn. enthusiasm can you get your foot in the door, but it takes being through the wars to win the cup.

We'll see.  I still say the Warriors are winning this series.

 

I'm sorry you think being wrong means anything to me  :)

The worst you could do to me for being wrong is go "hah you were wrong" and nothing else.

So I have no reason to fear being wrong.  The world doesn't end and the next series goes on where I'll make another pick and the day I was wrong won't have a second thought :)

 

  Hate to let you down, but the Spurs winning would only make me wrong, and nothing else.  Life goes on.  

Warriors are still gonna win this series though.  And if I'm wrong, it means nothing other than I'm wrong which does what to me exactly?  Nothing, and that's where it begins and ends with me. 

if you think I'm waiting with baited breath for the Warriors to win just to rub it in your face then I'll have to disappoint you again.

Spurs are not overmatched in any position.  It may seem so however if Splash brother connect well.

 

If the Splash game is on .. then any team will look overmatched.

 

Problem is you live by the 3 you ....

That happens often when your only weapon is the jump-shot. The Lebrons and Kobes of the league can still be a force even when their shooting is off.

And if you were correct on your oil ou would do nothing but run it in.

It's fine to pick who you think will win but it's backing it up with false notions and made up "facts" I find both hilarious and reprehensible.

The reason why San Antonio can compete with these younger teams is that they have athleticism around their older players. And, Parker isn't THAT old yet. Early 30s are very different than mid 30s in terms of basketball age.

This. 

I don't need to rub it in your face to enjoy life more than I already do :) 

my mother being cured of her diverticulitis would make me happy.

Proving you wrong on an internet forum ranks nowhere.

Sorry.

Curry is no Kobe .. at least not yet. And I dont think he has the skill and stamina either.

 

So if his jumpshot is off ... he will struggle to score. He did not reach double digits this game  despite playing 35 mins

One thing I notice is that his crossover move is very scout able. 

He's being defended off his first move very well because it's predictable, every time he(Green) goes for it he places his foot so it will go out of bounds or off of Curry, or he knows where to reach,  Curry is going to need  to not rely on that move so much as it's easily countered whenever he tries it now by Green.
