The spurs looked dead in that game tbh.

And yes, preseason.

OKC, SAS and Clippers are still better RS teams but with Asik and babymama..

I do think they'll be a better team than the clippers in the playoffs.

Houston plays right into GSW's hands. They play just as fast, shoot 3s better, can go small and draw Asik out of the paint, Iggy will put the clamps on Harden, and Bogut is one of the best defenders in the league so Dwight's minimal offensive game is neutralized.

lol'd hard at shoot 3s better, the rockets were 2nd in 3s made, and the Knicks were first, and the Rockets almost broke the 3 point record on the Warriors.

Attempts doesn't change a thing. They didn't have a single player shoot 40% or higher from 3. They played at a higher pace than GSW did, so there were more possessions. That pace will slow a bit with both Asik and Howard playing, and Howard wanting the ball in the post.

Houston is also just a more efficient team. Better overall fg%.

Warriors fans are annoying as fuk.


52.5 eFG% for Houston vs 50.6% eFG for GSW

Houston plays at a higher pace but is also just more effective on offense.

Howard getting the ball will open up the 3 point shooting by a lot, it didn't show with the Lakers because that team had 5 ballstoppers in the lineup, but with the Magic they were one of the best 3 point shooting teams.

Houston scores more points per shot than Golden State.

Houston takes almost TEN more per game than Golden State. Effectiveness is really not the point here. Houston is far deadlier from 3, as their cumulative total from 3 is far higher.

Especially when you factor in the extra 5 possessions per game houston gets.

Efficiency would be a huge deal if Houston weren't taking TEN more per game and only making 3% less than Golden State.

Golden State fanboys creeping upon the phaggotry level of supporters usually reserved to Lakers fans.

I wish I could fast-forward to the start of the playoffs. To when Warriors fans realise they aren't a top 5 team in the West.
And they lose in the first round.

"O herp derp we was championship materialz last year"

It's like they don't even realise who Jack and Landry were - and what their loss means to that team.

But a team that put a beatdown on them 3/4 times last year - who lost no one but Delfino - and who added Dwight Howard.. Seemingly didn't get better?

Oh lord. This is going to be a fun year Houston brahs.

Landry and Jack won't be missed, lol at acting like they were the key pieces to what the warriors did. Landry often dissappeard and Jack won us as many games as he lost. The warriors match up well with the rockets outside of Dwight being to athletic for bogut. Klay and iggy are both good defenders capable of limiting what harden can do.

And here is the main reason why Warriors fans are idiots.

Jack won't be missed?
You realised him on the court allowed Steph to play off the ball - when he was very effective right?
You realise Jack was clutch in the Playoffs right? I don't recall seeing him lose games by himself in the Playoffs.

But you're right.
Sports personalities everywhere are saying they're going to miss these two for a reason.
But you know more! You're a Warriors fan!

And yes Iggy can hinder Harden.
Let's not ignore the fact Iggy also is not a great 3 point threat.

In what f*cking world does losing 3 of 4 games mean you match up well with a team?
When you got marginally better and that team got exceptionally better?

Yea, i'm sure iggy won't give curry that freedom at all. Jack likes to dribble the entire shot clock out and chuck a bad shot when it gets low, if you want to call that clutch ok he's clutch. These are both definitely the same teams as last year so throwing 3/4 out there definately means alot. Harden had his lowest fg% against the warriors last year and that was with just Klay guarding him. Klay plays good D can just be prone to fouls sometimes. Lets not act like Iggy is the only capable defender. I'd say limiting a teams best playmaker is going to give a team a decent chance to win. Bogut looks pretty good and when healthy is one of the better post defenders in the NBA, Dwight's not just goonna run circles around him. The rockets also don't seem to have much of a starting PF and outside of Dwight are pretty lackluster on D. Not really sure why you're so mad at warriors fans.

You are giving Jack way too much credit. Jack did not help Curry's game. He hurt it. Jack often wanted to play hero ball when he has possibly the best shooter in the history of the league on his team. Curry doesn't need to play off-ball as he has no problem creating his own shot off the dribble. He isn't a guy that relies on other people to create for him. I do agree that they will miss Landry at times but the addition of Iggy + another year of growth from all of their young players will far outweigh the loss of Jack and Landry.

Because hack a bogut wasn't super successful right? Strong sample size on Harden.

Iggy locked down harden last year?

PG = GS
SG = Hou
SF = GS defensively, HOU offensively
PF = Obviously GS, but interested to see if Houston ever plays Asik/Howard in the 4th together
C = Obviously Houston

Where are you seeing these crazy matchup advantages? You're literally retarded if you think whatever you're slotting at SG is outplaying Harden.

I think Hou GSW would be a dream matchup for exciting play. Fast paced teams (interested to see how Houstons pace looks with Dwight)

Just confirming their potato status.

I didn't think they could be as misinformed... But they continue with their stupidity.

And in only it's third game the Asik/Howard pairing is showing it can work in games.
The paint is on lockdown.
Howard is dominating defensively.

"but stephy curry hits 3s he is better then hardon"

What are these idiots saying about Harden in the playoffs?
Forgetting he turned into the human torch against San Antonio and Dallas on his way to the Finals?
Forgetting he was double and triple teams against the team that knows him best last year.

LOL. Because it's definitely going to be as easy for Iggy to 'lock him down' again this year since he's got help on offense now right.
Because he's got a big man who is a threat on the P'n'R.
You're right GSW fans.
