Impressive win by Warriors. They led most of the way. They shot lights out — and if you can’t keep up with the Warriors in 3s you’ve got trouble. They made the Spurs look old and slow. And they kept their composure at the end. You would have to say the Warriors have been the better team in the first two games. And now they come home. The idea of the Warriors winning this series gets more real all the time.

    The Warriors have been the better team for all but 4 minutes of regulation in this series. Can’t wait for Friday night. The arena is going to be electric!

    Yes, yes and yes! Warriors got a win on the road with Curry having a lackluster Curry game. It’s ridiculous to think that Curry had an off night and still scored 22 points and missed 3 free throws?!
    Spurs are a good road team, and they’ve been in this situation before so they are a very capable of winning a road game. Oracle is a different animal during the playoffs though. I can’t wait for Friday!

    31 is DONE!!! Magical win in Warriors history tonight……they did what I thought they had to do to win….not foul too much and force the Spurs 3 point shooters Green and Ginobli to come inside the 3 point line where long shooters tend to miss.
    And Curry getting 2 fouls early in the game was a good thing because it forced Jackson to take him out where he could get some rest and the other players like Klay were forced to win the game.
    Also Bogut playing in the 4th quarter was huge defensively. The mini two game slump of not closing out games ended just in time. Despite the game 1 loss, the Warriors for the most part have DOMINATED this series so far and are clearly the better team……Warriors in 5 and on to the 3rd round for the first time since the Rick Barry days….sweet!

    that was stunning. opening to my *second favorite* writer’s blog post sums it up:

    If you want to draw a line between the Warriors’ past and their future, this seems like an awfully good place to do it. With their biggest win in 22 years, the Warriors didn’t just get a monkey off their back — they shed a zoo. Losing streak in San Antonio? Done. Two-plus decades without a road win in the second round? No more. Horrific collapse on Monday night? A distant memory. Questions about composure, execution and resilience? For now, silenced. The old ceiling on how good this team could be? Blown away. Warriors fans have spent countless years searching for reasons to hope and believe. There have been more false dawns and scrapped plans than any fanbase should have to endure. But after all that meaningless losing, it feels like the Warriors accomplished something in Game 2 that really matters. They now control their own destiny in a wide-open Western Conference.

    Wow, that’s terrific. Hey, they’re having a sale on lawn mowers at the hardware store. And I got some new tires for the truck…

    That’s it,old and slow. Why I keep saying Duncan is on vapors. He can shoot,spin move..after that? where is he ? still jogging to get where he’s going. And Parker? It reminds me of Monte taking on the bigger Kobe. Kobe could shoot whenever he wanted over the runt. Klay feels like nobody’s guarding him- just taken it easy,life is good for him..
    The Spurs are going through the four stages of death..,shock,denial..eh,you look up all the rest!

    After the first game loss Lowell,I posted on MT2 blog “We got them where we want them!!”. Later,Larry Kreuger was ripping the Warriors and “biggest chokers,etc”..then he said ( I swear) “And some say We got them where we want them!”. Larry Kreuger just learned a life lesson…don’t pick a fight with somebody smarter then you. Or my cat,who is..lol.

    One more about 9-12′s Krugy “Dont trade Monta” “Bogut is done” “Hire Keith Smart” ” Joe’s kid doesn’t belong in the front office!”
    Oh yeah and “LeBron will NEVER win a ring”!!!

    Joe Lacob? Joe is God. Just leave the bay alone Joe.

    Larry Kreuger was a scout in previous form. I hear his great,great grand daddy was one too. He told Custer ” ALL CLEAR!”

    This series is the best basketball I have ever seen. Even better than the WE Believe team. This team is for real. Next game is going to say it all. Can they shoot that well again? Can they play that smart again? Jackson is the a great coach. Did you hear him in the time outs? Oh yeah, we spent all most all of our timeouts in the first half of the 4th.

    just like I said….ER… a… Warriors in 5!

  14. Just too Fast....

    Without their All Star Forward Lee, and backup B. Rush, this team is playing with house money. This might be the best chance to reach the Finals considering the Thunders are without Westbrook. I sense a changing of the guards in the Western Conference. Go warriors!

    Can you believe they won that game starting two rookies!! Truly amazing. Mark Jackson is unbelievable and no, he does not make excuses.

    Reading the nyt today there was an article about the teardrop being a shot back in vogue. Discussing the merits of the shot the writer credits George Gervin with popularizing it. And discusses how difficult it is to master. Gervin cites Curry as the premier exponent of the shot playing today.He then compares Curry’s use of the shot to an Astaire dance move. Astounding that the national press is quicker to recognize an iconic talent in our back yard then we are.

    Mark Jackson winding up as the no. #7 spot on the coach of the year list was the little pebble that helped swing the pendulum over in last nights victory! Loosing Lee has actually helped the team because Barns & Green are a couple of great rooks and they’re tougher and better defenders as well amazing shooters inside and out. They haven’t been scoring as much as Lee was, but those shots are being better spent now by going to Curry and Thompson…..
