    If they were going to mail game 4 in, fine. But why play Butler at all after he missed the second half of game 3?

    Steph used the term “playing with house money” Sunday night about tonight’s game 4. Granted, they’re up 3-0, not 2-1 like Miami was…but it’s weird to see a player use that term. If Miami felt fine going back home 2-2 with home court because a few guys were out or dealing with lingering issues, okay…but why play Jimmy, Lowry, or Tucker at all then?

    Weird game :idk:

    Dallas winning and covering tonight feels like the lock of the century.
    GSW was down 50 with a chance to close out Memphis on the road. I imagine they are chilling at the pool right now

    He most likely means the pressure is lifted compared to if they lost Game 3 and faced a Game 4 that could tie the series instead

    but I don’t get the throwaway game mentality especially with GS’s age and injury issues. one more game is another opportunity for someone else is to get hurt. Otto Porter injured and GP2 hurt, bench is getting thin

    Poole might be worse. He's just so obvious about many of his flops he's doesn't get all the calls for it yet. In the last two minutes he tried the scissor kick on a three and then acted like he got run over by a bus when Bertans touched him.

    If Kerr leaving that Poole/Kuminga/Moody group out there that long is indicative of how much GS cares about winning this game, I think we're all going to be looking for something to watch by the middle of the fourth. Just a whole bunch of dumb on both ends throughout that stretch.

    The Mavs should just tank the rest of this one. Maybe the Warriors come out cold after too much rest going in to the finals.

    Medium take - the volatility of the 3 ball combined with the modern understanding of maximizing FG attempt value has increased varience in games between good teams, leading to more playoff blowouts.

    Hot take - league should rebalance somehow
