I will link to my column about the Warriors’ elimination as soon as it gets posted. For now, two points.

Mark Jackson always talks about the Warriors being a no-excuse team and him being a no-excuse coach. After tonight’s elimination, he reminded journalists he was “missing a starting center and a backup center.” All that is true. All that also is an excuse, or two excuses. Be consistent, Coach.

Second point. Stephen Curry was flat-out great in Game 7 — 33 points, 9 assists. Can’t blame this loss on him.

    Actually I was amazed to see that Curry had 33. Then I saw that half of his points were FT’s. ‘Cause in the game when the Warriors needed him to hit a basket?..he didn’t. At one point in the third, he quickly missed three shots in a row- all BAD shots- almost prayers…and the Clippers took every one down court and scored. And the blocked shot near the end was like he gave up..no pump fake..just “go ahead, block it”.
    Curry has a way to go to be great.

    And to point out what the local papers writers are not saying…I thought Curry and Lee sank to the occasion. They said later “we left it all on the court”. Its good they think that for their self esteem.

    But,it was a very good season..better then 99% of what Cohan and Nelson put out there.
    But,it could have been so much sweeter at the end.

    That’s not an excuse; it’s a point. An excuse would be “we lost because we’re missing a center and a backup.” That is not what he said.

    I agree with Brady here, those two items were not an excuse, they were a statement of fact. An excuse would have been something like “the officials just didn’t make the calls that were there.” The fact that the team found a way to compete and push a team that was not missing any key players is a testament to his ability to get the most out of the players that he had available.
