So, I wasn't able to watch the full game. Golden State won 100-99 over the Memphis Grizzlies. I was really only able to watch bits and pieces of the game, and then almost the entire 4th quarter. To say Golden State got lucky is an understatement. Chef Curry was cold last night. He shot 7-22 for 17 points. I think the bigger shocker is that he went 3-14 from downtown. For any other player in the league this might not be that bad of a night, but for the best shooter on the planet this is a rough game. If kobe went 7-22 and had 17, it would be a phenomenal night for him, but not the CHEF.
Anyways, Golden State shot poor from 3 yesterday, and honestly, I would have liked to see them take a few less shots from downtown. I know that as a team they have so many great shooters, but when they're not having a good shooting night I would like to see them be able to change their game plan instead of just throwing up more 3's.
People are arguing hard that the refs basically gave the game to Golden State, but that's not true. Of course you can argue that Draymond Green's tip in looked like an offensive goal tend AT FIRST. But once you watch the replay your fucking stupid to still think that. Then people are arguing that Lance Stephenson was fouled on the last second shot, but there is no way. He was already fading away, and looked as if he was going to fall over regardless. The only contact at all, is Klay Thompson's feet slightly touching Stephenson's as he's coming down after Lance has already released the ball. I'm going to attach the highlights below so you can see some of the visuals I just described.
Anyways, rough game for Golden State, but I'm very glad they were able to pull this one out. Since Golden State won last night, there game tonight becomes that much more interesting. With only two games left to go, Golden State still has a chance to set a new NBA best record of 73-9. Tonight they have a rematch against the Spurs in San Antonio. This will be there toughest game to date. The spurs got crushed by Golden State a few days ago, and there's no way they are going to let that happen again, especially not on their home court. Make sure you boys tune into the game. It starts at 7:00 pm et and can be watched on FSSW and NBATV.
