Those felt like panicked attempts--several players who forgot to keep playing basketball and just tried to tap/toss it in the general direction of the hoop--seemingly unaware of the amount of time left and the situation around them.

It’s funny the Warriors are neck and neck in Curry’s return, where he’s leading all scorers, compared to Game One. Draymond with all those dunks yet has to be “extra” when it’s not necessary.
Tough loss for the Raps. We'll see how they respond.

The Warriors were a bit wild behind Curry--who was very wild himself. Draymond's energy is critical to this team.

As I typed this, I just saw Davis close out on Green when he caught the ball, and then back off of him once he starts his dribble. Green ended up throwing up a jump hook brick. He played Green exactly how he should be played. Don't let him catch and shoot... back off of him once he starts dribbling.
Draymond is not a scorer. He's a very good passer, who is a credible threat to score when defenses stop playing him and start playing passing lanes. Teams give up that lane because Draymond is leading a 4 on 3 when teams double Curry (or KD). Defenders have to stay with Klay (and Curry and KD), and are also sticking with the other guys on the court who are threats for a lob or backdoor cut. So Dray has an open lane.

The shooting was beautiful. There was clearly some rust and he needs some conditioning. Curry was just lost on defensive positioning for much of his time out there, which led to some breakdowns. He wasn't seeing his teammates the way that he normally would (Klay was open twice that I remember in situations where Curry would normally find him). And he was looking for his shot more aggressively than normal (understandable, and frankly I like it, but it's different). He's going to get better. I think he will round into form mentally after another couple of games. And his game conditioning should come shortly thereafter.

Barkley shouldn't have said what he said (or maybe explain why, as they did on First Take). Green response was on point.

That may be true... Green still acts like a punk often on the court.

Yeah I know... mind games... intimidation... whatever it takes to get an edge... I don't like it.

It's part of the game within the game. Rondo & Mirotic tried to play it, too. The greats did it, too. It's a competition, and it's a fair edge to obtain.

Probably not good enough to win though.
Rubio is their heart and soul.

I'm surprised, they're hanging tough still.
