Warriors' defense is clearly not the same with Zaza as Bogut.
its been like 2 minutes.  Also, didn't the spurs win 67 games last year ?  Aldridge and now Pau are a ton to handle.  There's almost enough talent on the spurs to lose by less than 30.

It wasn't the same all through preseason either.
warriors started this game very sloppy.  They might score less than 150 tonight.  Wow.  That would be a big embarrassment for them.

Hayward and Favors out, and Utah still looks quite solid.

May have spoken too soon?

Is anyone watching that Blazer/Jazz game?


Curious if Evan Turner has the ball in his hands with that second unit. I see he already has 4 assists.

Seriously though the spurs look great per usual.

Decent challenge for the warriors right out of the gate.  Let's see if the spurs can keep the blowout under 30.

Yeah, this is why you should really pump the brakes on this whole exaggerated GS narrative that you've been preaching the last four months. They still have a lot to prove.

They'll come back and make this a close game, if not win it outright, since this is only the first quarter. But this whole narrative that they're just going to come out and curb stomp every team every night is just ridiculous. They still have a lot of growing and proving to do before seeing how legit they really are.

Only the Spurs could pick up David Lee and make him look like a damed all-star

Durant has looked terrific, though.

From what I've watched so far, he and Klay are almost diametrically opposed. They seemingly play best when the other is having an off night.

Lol no.  They really can't play any worse than they have been playing.  They look like a d league team in the first half missing layups and throwing the ball away. Spurs might be the second best team in the league.  That said, if that loaded warriors team loses this or any other game this season they should be completely ashamed of themselves. 

This narrative you have pushing that the warriors will not easily win 82 games this season is ridiculous

We really need to make a strong push for Cousins this year. Size and rebounding is going to be absolute kryptonite to this Warriors team, and it should hurt Cleveland, too. Combining that with our perimeter D to capitalize and multiply their tendency towards turnovers and being careless with the ball, and you have a recipe for success to beat the Warriors.

why are the coaches and Reggie Miller wearing similar ties?

HA! Lots of unhappy Warrior bandwagon fans about now that weren't living in reality and were expecting a blowout (speaking about my Facebook).

They've got some serious work to do on their D before they're championship-worthy. They look like Swiss cheese right now. It begs the question of what many of us were asking this summer - is the added offense to an already league-leading offense really worth all of the losses elsewhere?

And you've got to hand it to the Spurs. They're much better than I thought they were going to be, though you can see Duncan's absence in the defensive presence and rotations.
