You’re claiming there have been only four instances in the past five years of non-Warriors teams overcoming a 15+ point deficit to win an NBA game? Just think about how ridiculous that sounds. We’re literally in an era where people make up facts. Remarkable.
RT @samesfandiari: Steph played entire 2nd half and OT. For those who think GSW don’t need KD v Mil/Tor: this team has a 80 Ortg when steph sat in first half. And only an 89.7 Ortg on the series as a whole when Steph sits. They do not have enough offense
No? I said Curry hadn’t had an iconic moment in the early stages of the Rockets series. then he had Game 5 and 6, and the WCF. He checked off that box for me.
RT @NickFriedell: Warriors are very happy to have beaten Blazers and advance to Finals again but the difference between the celebrations in Portland and in Houston aren’t even close. In Houston, it was a party because they knew Rockets could beat them. In Portland, it’s business as usual.
GOD HAVE MERCY ON JAMES HARDEN’S SOUL IF HE HAD SAID THIS. (I won’t stop doing this until the insane double standard ends.) #Rockets
Damian Lillard: “It’s another sweep, but you’d rather be swept in the Western Conference finals than in the first round.”
June Jones is the face of Houston’s newest football venture as head coach and general manager of the XFL team that will begin play in 2020. If the XFL is going to thrive in Houston, the Hawaiian shirt-clad, offensive-minded Jones is just the guy to make it happen.
RT @annkillion: I'm so used to writing Warriors winning that I can take it for granted. But holy ****. Five NBA Finals appearances. Getting there without KD. No Andre tonight. Coming back from double digit deficits in the last three games of this series. What a thing.
“The difference between Golden State and the two teams they have beaten in the last week is that Curry plays with stars who complement him. Harden (Chris Paul) and Lillard (C.J. McCollum) have co-stars who replicate them.” https://t.co/SSh4XYyXC1

Golden State Warriors in the playoffs, 2015-2019 -- 5 Finals; 3 (possibly 4) titles -- 18-1 series record -- 75-24 (.758) overall -- 44-10 (.815) since Kevin Durant's arrival -- 60-17 (.779) vs. West -- 15-7 (.682) vs. East -- 16-7 (.696) vs. Rockets -- 12-1 (.923) vs. Blazers
??? In reality, people will make the Rockets the favorites in the West If KD leaves. Rockets a close 2nd in a West last 2 years
For the West’s sake, I hope KD stays a Warrior. We all have a better shot that way
We’ve really got to stop doing the thing where we act like any lead between 10 and 20 points in the modern NBA should be an automatic win.
