Was not surprised to see Toronto win last night. That crowd was uniquely batshit, and Golden State is discombobulated enough right now to be thrown off its game by something like this.

I still think Golden State wins, but that's also because I think we see Durant later in this series. He'll be much more important for this matchup than he was for the Houston series. If Durant misses the whole thing, it's much more interesting. Siakam is a real problem for them.

Agreed.

Golden State was very sloppy. I think Kerr makes adjustments and they win Game 2. Would be concerned if I were a Warriors fan, though, that they lost a game where Kawhi didn't play well.

Sticking with Warriors in 6.

I'm probably focusing too much on the errors, but Draymond looked more overwhelmed last night than I recall him looking previously.

if you're steve kerr, do you put more focus on defending siakam at the risk of opening up space for kawhi, or do you stick with what you did last game and go under the reasoning that pascal can't perform like that again (although, he absolutely can) and try to keep the clamps on kawhi?

What's with the 3-day break between games in the same city?

I think he just rolls the same way. Kawhi is obviously the bigger threat so you do what you can to take him away as best as possible and if a guy like Siakam goes off again, you tip your hat.

TV ratings. Sunday has bigger historic ratings than Saturday. Stupid, alas.

And... you know... the building is occupied.

Also assume they set things up with the nhl to avoid stepping on each other.

carrie underwood's show next sunday got postponed for game 5 and the game isn't even being played that night. a twentyone pilots show got bumped on wednesday for game 1 too. not sure why the who hasn't been pushed considering both of those other concerts are/were the night before a game though.

Yea the Who have absolutely nothing to do with it.

Teams are given the schedule as to when the NBA Finals are going to take place years in advance. I can log in and tell you when the finals are scheduled for the next two seasons, even for a team that has absolutely no chance of actually playing in the finals.

The time between game 1 and game 7 is 17 days. That's not because of The Who.

The concerts would be scheduled around the holds for a team with intentions of advancing, not the other way around. And if a team schedules a concert for a day where there's a game scheduled, the NBA wins. The concert will move.

My understanding, and you’d know better, is that those playoff months are going to be “reserved” by the home team and the concerts are subject to potential change but that’s all a function of negotiation.

Judging that The Who don’t appear to have any immediate dates after this show, I imagine they’re flexible.

You can make whatever point you want about Carrie Underwood and Twenty One Pilots you want, but it’s not like they *wanted* to interrupt those shows. They had to.

To say The Who and the NHL have nothing to do with it... dunno. I imagine that’s their justification, more than anything. The schedules aren’t made in a vacuum.

i mean...obviously?

the arena said those shows were both postponed due to "the NBA's technical setup requirements" which i assume means there's some obligation for the arena to be fully set up for basketball some number of hours before tip-off. both of the concerts that were postponed were on the evening before a 9 pm game. but tomorrow's tip-off is at 8, and the who is still scheduled to go on tonight as far as i can see. i'm confused by that. i have a hard time believing that a who show is less elaborate and faster to take down than a carrie underwood or twentyone pilots show.
