    Never understood why Charges aren't counted in with Steals or Blocks, or counted at all as legitimate stats ... it's basically the same thing as a steal or a block, in terms of what it does for your team.
    Charges are better than a steal or a block because it draws a foul.....

      My question is : Will Nick Nurse make any adjustment ?
      Or because he won game 1, he try using the same plane for game 2 ?

          Any thoughts about what the Warriors might do next game? Will they stop double teaming Kawhi in favour of Pascal? Or send a lot more help defenders to Pascal, similar to what the 76ers did?

          Are they going to try and make Lowry, Gasol, and Green beat them? Hmmmm...
          I'm 95% sure that Draymondis going to guard pascal. Read his post game and he said its his responsibility to shut down pascal.

              We need to win game 2. Durant is coming back. Nobodies just "happy to be here" anymore. This is real
              The goal should be to protect home and steal at least one away for these first four ... and then to not pull an OKC or GSW (as I believe thats how they lost to the Cavs in one of the series if memory serves right).

                This Jersey is actually not bad.

                Also, GSW will tighten up their act next game.
                I expect a more competitive, physical battle.

                Mad respect for Curry, the best shooter ever,
                but he is a big time FLOPPER.
                One huge reason why I started to dislike him as a player.
                Players like him ruin the game.

                Kawhi plays the game right, clean , honest old school ball.
                I hope more kids learn from him.

                I see game 2 as slightly favoring GSW, but I hope I'm wrong.

                  Kind of like putting Draymond on Pascal

                    I could see Golden State using Looney, like the Sixers used Embiid, to sag off Pascal and dare him to shoot 3's. That frees up Draymond to check Gasol and also dare him to shoot 3's and roam/help when he goes passive. Looney has a 7-3 wingspan looks like a good defender. They just have to go back and look at the Sixers series.... Raps never really figured out that defense.
                    Wait, if Draymond is going to sag off Gasol, why not just have him sag off of Pascal? Isn't that what they were already doing, hence all the open threes for Pascal?

                      Except that it looks like Draymond might not be tall, long or athletic enough to deter Pascal from driving to the rim, like Embiid or Giannis. Pascal took it right at Draymond. Not saying Looney is an upgrade over Green, but he is taller and longer. He did a pretty good job in space guarding Kawhi, 1-on-1. I think they'll live with Pascal taking 10 threes a game.

                          Pascal keeps making me look stupider and stupider for wanting to draft Skal Labissiere. Man am I a dumbass.

                          But that is a loss I will happily take. What a testament to Masai, our development staff, and Pascal himself for having a crazy good work ethic.

                            Better because you move the other team into bonus category.

                              Wonder if Igoudala will play. Looked banged up last game.

                                Having the extra day off is a real benefit to the Raptors. GS is using a larger pool of guys in the game. Did they have ten or eleven different players on the floor? Raptors are limited to eight. It looks like OG is coming back but he will probably be out of shape a bit. The rotation guys need an extra day to recoup and rest.

                                In addition, it looks like Nurse is reacting to the opposing team more effectively than his opponents are. I expect the Raptors to be more ready for Golden State than Golden State is for the Raptors. It sounds like BS when the GS players and coach talk about not being ready for the Raptors because "We haven't played them much," but they sure played like they hadn't done any prep at all.

                                We will see, but I am expecting a Raptors team to come out ready and prepped for Game 2.
