This is literally the worst basketball game I have ever had the displeasure of watching. Nobody is having fun, everyone is getting hurt. It’s terrible.


ResolutionTricky3890

NBA really wanted warriors to win Refs really took the mavs out and helped the warriors come back


snubssorctoh

I hate just Luka haha, and surprised you think they can win it all, I think heat Celtics and warriors would beat them in 5


PetriNevski

Dinwiddie has to step it up now, shit 4 points


DookyRL

Bro it’s not about their points lol, their defense was a layup line in the 4th. You’re never gonna get more contribution from role players than Brunson shooting a crazy efficient 31 and Bullock having a crazy efficient 21. Scoring more than 117 points isn’t how you beat the warriors, not letting them have 126 is.


TheGoatSteez

i stopped watching at half and was for sure thinking i was gonna see the warriors got blown out when i checked this thread but they fucking won? wtf


Mygaffer

Why did you stop watching at the half?


Bornplayer97

They were down by 14 at the half


fuzionknight96

Absolutely gut wrenching, if we don’t switch strategies in second half, we don’t go from 19 up to a loss. Regardless, crazy play from GSW and even though the Mavs didnt win, atleast we got a close match.


masterkaido04

yeah and I'll bet on game 3 for Dallas I know they will win atleast 1 from their homecourt, hopely it gives us a good odds.


Ihopetheresenoughroo

Shaq looks so big next to Poole lolol


bodega_cat_

shaq look like he had a cherry slurpie before the show?


custombimmer

Wish I had one, would make the L better


cambiumkx

I’m really sick of the turtle Jesus ad


J0hn_D0ry

I like the bit where the tow bar disappears magically. If you’re going to show a 15 second ad 80 times a day you’d think details like that wouldn’t be overlooked


chaszzzbrown

I always think he's gonna get back in the truck and rake up all those turtles for profit at the high end artisan fish market. "Fresh Organic Turtle Soup!"


squirtle_squad25

Chuck and Ernie finally going at it??


Arnold573

Warriors are probably the best all-around team remaining when you factor in their bench (it’s close between them and Boston). Every player that steps on the floor for them seems like they’ll make a pivotal play.


craigslistaddict

if only d.lee could redeem himself at some point 😑


jimjamiam

I cannot comprehend why D Lee is playing, ever


shupadupa

Wait until GP2 comes back (and hopefully, Iguodala).


cambiumkx

What’s with the tray of trash lol


MarduRusher

Chuck trying to ignore the fans heckling in his Mavs jeresy lol.


GraveRobberJ

Warriors fans have the biggest victim complex in the league for a team with as much success as they have had


HanSoloHer

Only fanbases and team that gets so much hate cause we smack the shit out your favorite teams playa


darkholesremastered

Warriors have been hated on hard as fuck from the beginning of this run. We have never got our respect lol we had arguably the best team in nba history, lost the finals, then got kd and have been absolutely shit on by nearly everyone since 2017


crunchycrispy

cuz we never get the full respect in the discourse, the fans don’t give it up like they did 80s laker/celtics or 90s bulls or 00s lakers etc. always some bullshit narrative everyone is saying to discount the talent/achievements and overcredit their counterparts. feels like we gotta do double the work to get any credit. also we were terrible for decades.


robotech021

Curry 8 rebounds. Luka 5 rebounds. Steph is too physical out there. Plus, all the Steph points in the paint.


Slim_Pip

Luka had 42 points.


hype_beest

Doncic's terrible defense probably gave up 50 points


robotech021

Warriors dominated inside. Charles Barkley is really proud of the Warriors right now. No more jump shooting team.


Sniffy4

driving layups, not post-ups like Barkley prefers


McTapper98

Chuck back at it again playing with them fans feelings. lol.


borrachos_unidos

We all love the show


Banxrok

Draymond is gonna have a lot to say in his podcast since he basically watched the game.


craigslistaddict

he'll be well-rested for the away games!


Mygaffer

Draymond did not play well


ronygah

There was plenty of offense for the Mavs today... Defensive lapses is the issue that needs to be addressed

GainProfessional8819

2016 finals kyrie was definitely better than curry


W3ST21

Wrong sub bro


smoovopr8r

Chuck is such a fcuking troll. I love him. Also, that jersey looks like it's screenprinted on.


robotech021

Court jester of court jesters. Love him. I hope he never changes.


WorldsBaddestJuggalo

They gonna have to cut that jersey off Chuck


borrachos_unidos

They got him a youth XXXL


darko2309

Lmao I knew the narrative would change when the warriors started winning this series.


W3ST21

Chuck you suck! Bahahaha


jawknee530i

Omg love the cheering.


thefalseslimshady1

first Jokic needs help then Ja needs help now Luka needs help and Curry is a front runner no argument whatsoever ~ This proud victim complexing Warriors fan


NoobPwnr

Did you see the scores of the other players on the Mavs? U ok mate?


Rare-Adhesiveness336

Brunson had 31 and Bullock had 21 that’s help…Foh and Luka had 42 and they still lost. Play some D


lakers_ftw24

No one said Ja needs help bro, they literally won a game without him. You really tryna say that Jokic and Luka don't have objectively bad supporting casts? Switch Curry and Luka and you actually think the Warriors wouldn't make it as far?


Sh4d0wseeker

Jokic has a great supporting cast. The only problem this season was that the Nuggest 2nd AND 3rd option were injured. With Murray and Michael the Nuggets are contenders.


lakers_ftw24

I'm obviously talking about this season bro.


crunchycrispy

lol they objectively don’t have bad support and part of what makes a great player is making their team better. good players become superstars when they play with curry. there’s a reason. you can’t just take him out of the warriors, if you don’t watch enough basketball there are endless stats proving that he has the biggest impact on his team and the floor of anyone in the league. poole and gp2 and looney and all them weren’t just born great. if luka was subbed in they would’ve stayed where they were.


lakers_ftw24

Are you really giving Curry credit for Poole's development as a player individually? That might be one of the most absurd things I've ever heard and genuinely disrespectful. Sure, he might not have become as good as he is now but you can't just discredit all the work he put in or the coaching staff that clearly knows how to develop players well too lmao. Also Curry literally missed the playoffs last year, talk about "making your team better" nobody can carry a team by themselves my guy, I don't care how much of an impact they have. You want to talk about impact stats Jokic just got done with arguably the best season ever according to some of those stats like Win Shares BPM etc.


crunchycrispy

lol jokic was a joke in the playoffs. completely ordinary. and yes curry deserves a ton of credit for poole, just ask poole.


lakers_ftw24

I cant believe garbage like this is getting pushed around, goes to show how many bandwagons are on here. Jokic was a joke in the playoffs?


crunchycrispy

yes he lost handily. not even close to mvp caliber. did you actually watch?


W3ST21

Lebron had Davis and Westbrook. How they do?


LSX81

Davis didnt even play hes glassman

HanSoloHer

Its actually kinda scary.


W3ST21

Some folks just little bitches


custombimmer

must be nice to have a god squad


VibeComplex

Draft better 🤷‍♂️


custombimmer

you mean spend money better


VibeComplex

No I mean draft and develope talent better


custombimmer

not everyone can hit the lottery. Draft and develop is a baseball shit. NBA is play now


Sh4d0wseeker

The difference in the Warriors dynasty and any other team in the NBA is that they actually BUILT a team from the ground up instead of signing 4 all-star/HOF caliber players. I already know you will say they signed KD though, and yes they did, but did he help them achieve the best record in the nba? Did he help them make 2 out of the 5 finals appearances and win the chip in 2015?


VibeComplex

Lol that’s sounds dumb as fuck


Bornplayer97

Most of their stars were drafted the fuck you want them to do?


NephewChaps

Curry, Klay, Dray, Looney and Poole were all drafted and developed by Golden State


JayDeeLA

Teams that win a lot are easy to hate...


intersectionalgang

Luka can avg 40+ but cant even contest a layup from somebody half a foot shorter than him lol


GeneralSedgwick

He seemed pretty gassed by the end


smoovopr8r

A man's gotta know his limitations.


Cheddarkenny

Gg, wish we hadn't lost like that but our guys all look exhausted. Hopefully finally getting to come home from the long road trip from game 7 does them some good. Also sincerely hope none of the our guys gets their face fucked up next game. Have a good night everyone!


lakers_ftw24

Looney is the goat, they should definitely give him 35 mins again. Dray just hasn't been that amazing in the playoffs.


crunchycrispy

lol what have you been watching. draymond’s defense is consistently incredible and he even hit a dagger 3.


lakers_ftw24

Nah the Warriors were losing Draymond minuted even in the Memphis series.


Shakill_The_GOD

Bruh Luka needs help, dude is pretty much the only starter on a team of bench players 🤣. Also Brunson looks like he's 35 and he should be a 3rd to 4th option.


blue_starburst

What do y’all need? Michael fucking Jordan?


HanSoloHer

They need more help until they're better than the warriors haha


Jayy_Emmm

Brunson and Bullock had 31 and 21, 11-18 from 3 combined. How much more help does he need?


Rare-Adhesiveness336

Facts I just said the same bro!! Get these clowns outta here lmao..31 and 21 is help to me and Dinwiddie not a scrub he just not playing well


benballernojohnnyda

every team always needs more help when it’s against us lmao


NephewChaps

of course they need, it's us lol


Shakill_The_GOD

Lmao all of that in the first half. You need clutch players to control the tempo and finish the game (Hence the Splash brother combo late game). They could not buy a bucket in the 2nd half. Note: I'm hoping they do lose because knowing the Mavs they will be content with what they have and not get Luka any help in the off season if they somehow win.


Jayy_Emmm

Lmao does the first half not count either or something? If they don’t score all those points in the first half, Warriors end up winning by 30 and being clutch doesn’t even become a factor in this game


Sniffy4

the problem they're having is defense, not offense. W's score relentlessly on drives because they have no interior D


Jayy_Emmm

In the regular season, the Mavs were the 4th rated defense. They only allowed 2 more points in the paint than the Warriors 1st rated defense. How much more help does this team need?


Shakill_The_GOD

Oh yes I said that in another comment they truly need a athletic big badly.


star0forion

Apparently even more help?


JerkwaterJeff666

So glad to see the smile wiped off Luka’s face.


ppl_annoy_me

I was wondering where it went in the 2nd half


st6374

I was really curious if the Mavs could make adjustments to prevent the Warriors from dominating the paint this game. And nope.. 62 points in the paint at 59% FG. Meanwhile Dallas scoring 30 pts.


tg9413

Kevon MFing Looney is the hero


[deleted]

[удалено]


ladidadi82

Two very different style of players and needs for each team


ongone

The first half officiating was criminal. Kept GSW in it. Grand Jury this shit.


GeneralSedgwick

Uh, what game did you watch? Because I’m pretty sure I just watched a game where the Mavs had a 14 point lead at halftime and then proceeded to go ice cold and let the Warriors score on the last 10 or so possessions of the game. The officiating wasn’t great, but its hardly what cost the Mavs this game.


wraith985

Golden State won points in the paint 62-30, Mavs were intentionally fouling, and they still ended up with more free throws than GS. Calling that refball is just an absolute joke. Imagine hating a team so much that you have to make up such transparently stupid shit to make yourself feel better, like our friend up there.


tammutiny

Second half was almost as bad... Kane Fitzgerald is a miserable ref


GRILT_CHEESE

Looney likable, too bad about the rest of that team, especially Poole and Draymond. Absolutely disgusting.


HanSoloHer

This dude comment history... Disgusting!!


crunchycrispy

cope harder


lakers_ftw24

Man wtf did Klay do 💀


borrachos_unidos

You should really save your vitriol for our shooting coach. Dude is apparently a lovable bastard.


ladidadi82

Curious why you don’t like Poole? He comes across to me as a smug little shit to me


Jackie_Jormp-Jomp

Curry and Klay are good boys but yeah, fuck Poole, Lee and Draymond.


LusciousCabbage

There's Klay hate now too lol come on


custombimmer

Jordan didn't win a playoff series until he got help. give my man Luka needs help


AdministrativeBit510

They need to play some damn defense lol


custombimmer

I agree, they left the middle open all night


marexXLrg

Luka is good but there is no comparing him to Jordan.


xSociety

Larry Bird is the better comparison. Fact is Luka will go down as one of the all time greats when he retires, Easily top 5 all time.


marexXLrg

Is Bird even considered top 5? Luka's been in the league for 4 years? His greatest achievement so far is being down 2 games in round 3 of the playoffs? Might want to wait on that take.


custombimmer

the situation is though, he can't do it himself


Darkonite40

Brunson had 31 ppl have to stop scoring like this is a Cleveland Lebron situation they even went up 2-1 against Utah without him


marexXLrg

Brunson had 31. Bullock had 21. Mavs, including Luka, need to play better D.


custombimmer

100% agree, they left the paint open all night, points aint everything. Pippen was lock down D


marexXLrg

And Jordan was a 2 way player who won DPOY. Luka has been a cone on D.


custombimmer

yeah can't play all positions. It's a team game, no one was playing D


[deleted]

[удалено]


custombimmer

yup. He needs a true #2


pekingsewer

I can't believe they made Jimmy do that 😂😂


WorldsBaddestJuggalo

Suit up, Dirk. The defense is garbo anyway rn, might as well add another threat.


Easy_Money_

Dubs and Mavs fans, who are you more scared of in the East should you advance? For me Bam/Jimmy is freaky deeky shit I don’t want that smoke


craigslistaddict

celtics, sheesh


MaximumCache

Celtics are the more interesting match up. I think Miami will lose the role player match up against GSW. I don't think Jimmy can take the entire team on by himself.


ladidadi82

I think both have far better defense than any other team in the west tbh


tammutiny

Bam has been invisible at times. Celtics with a full squad are far more scary


murakamitears

The Celtics are balanced af, they’ve got shutdown defense and they’re young, we don’t matchup well with them at all


ThrowbigD

Jimmy would destroy the Mavs.


[deleted]

[удалено]


AwShizWhiz

Grizzlies played the dubs closer without ja lol. What happens in 2019 if klay doesn't get hurt? Raptors fans talkin about something easy lol.


Japan0killedMyFamily

Classic raptors fans. Win 1 single ring with massive injury luck, then try to discredit teams that made it further than them


ladidadi82

West was soft this year but that means they weren’t really tested


doogled3

Suns last year? Rolled through injured team after injured team. At least Dallas is healthy, has a superstar, and plays good defense.


ThrowbigD

As a Mavs fan I feel the Warriors are the easiest road to the Finals we will have in the next 3 years, the Warriors don't scare me at all.


tubbymunchkin

Lmao


ThrowbigD

I can't even believe you let us score so much in the first half, that was amazing! We never could do that in the first two against the Suns.


tubbymunchkin

What ever helps you cope my guy. If you think bc you pulled off 0-2 comebacks that’ll it work indefinitely I’m sorry for you


ThrowbigD

I'm feeling good, bet a few thousand on the 2nd half over and the Warriors really helped that, my other big bet was luka over 35 and mavs over 103, I hope you are making money on this series, it's easy.


InFin0819

You can do this with literally any finals run.


[deleted]

You won your title against injured team and you shit talk.


meatballman1218

look at curry man so inspirational


wraith985

Mavs tried but couldn't surpass 0/27 in the end.


psychozamotazoa

I missed the game. They really went 0/27?


wraith985

Nah, 0/27 was the rockets in that game 7 a few years back. Dallas was 6/18 from 3 in the 2nd half I think? But they were 15/28 or whatever in the 1st half so it felt like a huge letdown.


Gristle__McThornbody

Maybe if Luka wasn't so fat he would have the energy to give a better effort on defense and help his team succeed instead of being a major liability out there.


Worth_Use_3870

this game was by no means luka’s fault


GainProfessional8819

he was getting cooked all game on defense. some of the blame is definitely on him


Guiltyjerk

Lol that's a fun October take


Brown-Bomber

Suns woulda been a better matchup


itsahmemario

Centers who can switch > Defensive anchor centers, at least, as far as playoffs are concerned.


YellowDucky92

Ker is a great coach that understands the flow of the game and doesn’t panic. Makes adjustments and is not afraid to go with the hot hand.


II-III-V-VII-XI

These "welcome to the playoffs", "this is championship basketball" comments from Warriors flairs—who were MIA in the second quarter—are so cringe.


lakers_ftw24

They definitely started watching in May 2015.


rbrutonIII

Well duh, the game isn't decided until the 4th. Coming back from 19 is championship metal. Something the sun's obviously didn't have


craigslistaddict

dubs have been down at halftime and then gone on to win many times this season... and other teams have also had dramatic comebacks (but not the suns, lol), so as long as it's not like a 20+ point lead (preferably 10 points or less) and the opponents haven't demonstrated lock down defense (dubs were actually shooting ok in the first half, just not enough for the usual reasons) I'm going to be optimistic about their chances.


NephewChaps

I know, but it's a too easy of a low hanging fruit


trujillone

Is crypto trying to make jokes about how it’s dying? Lmao average folks have lost their life savings and they makin jokes smh


danrod17

If you have your life savings in crypto you are an idiot.


trujillone

Don’t disagree lol but these ads with celebrities are targeting everyday folks that might get duped if Steph is telling them to buy


gore_skywalker

I have 99% of it there. I am an idiot with an 8 figure net worth.


Guiltyjerk

I have to assume this commercial was in the can weeks ago but maybe they spun it up real quick to try to bolster confidence lol


myxallion

Wiggins played 38 mins again. This guy is a fucking Ironman


GainProfessional8819

The fact that everyone acts like luka has no help is fucking ridiculous. Brunson had a 30 ball and they’ll still act like he’s a scrub


HORSE_PASTE

He needs help on defense. He had enough help on offense tonight.


ts2mars

Or you know…he can play some defense himself. Just a thought


GainProfessional8819

He was one of the worst defensive players on the court


HORSE_PASTE

I know. I'm saying he needs help on defense.


GainProfessional8819

My bad. Thought you meant he needed other players to step up defensively


DemonsReturns7

But that IS what he’s saying haha


mean_face

Can’t wait to see how much the Dallas bench fine is for this game.


sairam1431

Too many defensive lapses at important times by the mavs. They are attacking Kleber too much and trying to attack looney on the defensive end is not working too well. But I think Luka had enough help this game - 31 by brunson and 21 by bullock. They just aren't defending well enough. I think the problem is guard depth? playing a 6 player lineup basically out of which only 2 are good defensive players seem to be something they have to tackle. great game though. Looking forward to the third game.


DatsHim

GSW just built different man. They got a squad and great chemistry. This is coming from a non biased take wanting both teams to play good.


sairam1431

Haha i know. Im a jazz fan myself but I did not notice their defense being this bad in the first two rounds but Im gonna give that credit to the warriors offensive schemes. I don't think they have the personnel to defend this warriors team yet.


DatsHim

I honestly feel like steph plays the game in the most practical unorthodox way if that makes any sense. The warriors shred in the playoffs and the way Steph can naturally manage a game is crazy.


trujillone

Looney likable as hell lol good for him


DatsHim

Grown man


schrodingersays

Looney had to switch on prime Harden.


Keede_95

The lack of class by many of our fans after such a comeback is appalling. Celebrate our team's win and effort instead of trying to clap back on trash talk during the game


DatsHim

I see this in a lot of sports subs. Trolls come and go but it’s always a good time when you believe in your team, talk respectful shit and then congratulate their subreddit respectfully and you cant get banned and you’re not a dick.


GodsKillSwitch0

Sorry mom


rene-cumbubble

It's Reddit. What's the point of you're not talking shit


smoovopr8r

11 years olds can't help themselves man.


Guiltyjerk

They were 4 when GSW won their first


star0forion

So you’re saying they’re 51 years old now?
