Stephen Curry is celebrating his 30th birthday today. Now his age matches that of his jersey number.

The Warriors tonite are without Curry, Green, and Thompson.

They better get healthy by playoffs for any shot at another title.

Yeah. Looks like Kevin Durant will have to hold down the fort until they return. Hopefully they will return soon, because there's no way they'll get back to the Finals if they aren't at full strength when the playoffs arrive in April. Golden State will definitely need to be at full strength against the Houston Rockets. Should the Warriors be without at least one of their key players in that match-up, Houston wins.

They don't really need to rush though. They can still get through round 1, probably round 2.

It is true that they shouldn't rush any of them back. However, they will need everyone healthy come playoff time if they want to repeat as champions.

Agree, the Lakers were a handful last night. Bad turnovers ruined any hope of a Laker comeback and win, but come playoffs unless all the star players for the Warriors are healthy, it will be tough for them.

Here is a quote from Klay Thompson-
"Every time the Bulls came to town, that was the ticket of the year. Now it's when the Warriors come to town, that's the must-see game. And we don't take that for granted; that's such a cool position to be in. We rarely play in front of a crowd that's not sold out. That's so special. It's hard to really grasp that as a player. So I think it's close. I still think we're not on their level yet, but that's what we aspire to be of the 2000s. We aspire to be that dynasty that will be in the minds of NBA fans forever."

This kind of talk is why I'd love to see Houston win the next couple of rings.
GS think they are in the running to be a "dynasty" when they can't even win back2back, and can't even win a ring from 3-1 up.
And GS have never been even remotely close to the 90s Bulls in popularity.

Three consecutive Finals and 3 consecutive seasons over 60 wins (one over 70) is not an ordinary quality team. And they have a decent shot at sleepwalking their way to 60 wins again this year. Klay's statement is perfectly defensible.

Fans come to Warriors games early to watch a Hall of Fame Point Guard's warm up. That is not characteristic of a run-of-the-mill star player. It's a special team, and we have the good fortune to be here for it.

I noticed because somewhere back in this thread we mentioned the run they are on, and they were still in tenth place!
