[Post Game Thread] The Golden State Warriors hold off the Toronto Raptors 106-105 to stay alive in the NBA Finals 3-2
20 threes. God damn
Run from him, hide from him, Elimination Game Klay still arrives.
Next up: Game 6 Klay
50 pts 12-16 3s in 32 minutes
Klay makes 3s way too often it feels like lol. How is he 7/13?? 6/13 is even good, 5/13 would make sense. It’s unbelievable.
Letting him get warmed up with 5'11 Kyle Lowry on him doesn't seem to be it, chief.
If it works in 2K, it’ll work in real life
The Warriors showed that championship response in the 4th. Tough fucking loss.
Man that last shot was underwhelming, I was like yes yes yes than I was like no no no
That entire possession was fucking terrible
LA fitness games have better possessions than that one
Good D from the Warriors though to lock up Kawhi
For sure. Watch again. Iggy leaves to double team Kawhi (smart!) and Draymond is stuck with two guys. He stays with Gasol long enough so he’s not wide open under then net then recovers in time to get a piece of the final shot. Unreal.
Cannot believe Nurse didn’t take the TO
Kawhi should've taken the last shot
Igoudala prevented that. It was great double team, didn't let Kawhi get to his spot.
That timeout when the Raptors had all the momentum was fucking stupid.
And not calling one on the final possession lol
Also Lowry transformed into Raymond Felton in the last 2 minutes
It was SO stupid. Kawhi scores like 4 buckets in a row, then the timeout. Then THE WARRIORS SCORED 9 UNANSWERED
Seriously. That building was rocking and they had all the momentum and kawhi was unstoppable. no clue why they called that
For the record, they HAD to call that time-out. Look up the NBA time-out rules.
""d. There must be two 100-second timeouts in the first and third periods andthree 100-second timeouts in the second and fourth periods.If neither team has taken a timeout prior to 5:59 of the first or third period, itshall be mandatory for the Official Scorer to take it at the first dead ball and chargeit to the home team."
"If no subsequent timeouts are taken prior to 2:59, it shall be mandatory for the Official Scorer to take it and charge it to the team not previously charged"
Edit: The time-out was at 3:05, (6 seconds before an auto timeout would have been charged on the next dead ball)
Edit #2: Also, I assumed this was known, but Toronto would have ALSO lost 2 of their remaining 4 timeouts.
Need that ad money bruh
But if you trade two timeouts for the championship, you’d think it’s a fair deal, right?
They saved these timeouts and not call it to draw up a play with the game on the line. Go figure heh
There's good fans and bad fans in any stadium. Unfortunately more of the bad fans made noise when KD went down.
It’s interesting that they were cheering for him to go out until Lowry told them to stop.
It takes a while to realise what the fuck is going on in the heat of the moment. You’re talking about humans. 200 years ago we used to cheer like crazy at beheadings.
They realised they were assholes and clapped for Durant.
This. If the opposing teams best player is no longer playing g your first instinct is great! Then you realise oh wait that’s a human.
As a raps fan, I’m so disappointed in how the crowd initially responded. Anyone who watches basketball knows KD deserves more respect than mocking waves goodbye, especially after such a devastating injury. We criticize other teams’ fans for being rude and praise ours for being kind but look at how we treated an injured man. I’m sorry for everyone rightfully pissed off at us.
Ya I’m at Jurassic park rn and there are fans who cheered and lost their mind when that happened and there were fans (myself included) who looked around very uncomfortable at people cheering for his injury, it’s just not a black and white thing
You’re right this is not a black and white thing, and it’s not exclusive to Toronto either.
However, I think it speaks to the bandwagon fan culture. If you’ve been around sports at all in your life you learn quite quickly that when someone is down you do not cheer out of joy for their misfortune. Whether it be out of emotion or not, you just do not do that period.
