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.
