The arena is available for Saturday night for Game 7.

It's scheduled for Sunday.

I think it's absolutely ridiculous that they won't schedule games on Saturday. The same number of eyes will be on the game, but because they're out at bars and what not they don't count in the ratings, and thus kill advertising dollars.

But alas, this is the world we live in.

Yea I mean... I haven't been in arena for a finals game. But I've been in arena for the international game, and I've been in arena for a shit ton of national TV games... and this seems like a bogus reason.

Oh I forgot... I was in arena for Stanley Cup finals games, and the only impact beyond A normal national TV game was that we couldn't play our morning pickup games on the in arena practice court because they needed more room to set up for press. Otherwise the arena functioned as normal

Nah. I mean, if Siakam beats you and not Leonard, you live with it.

The adjustments I'd make are...

-- transition defense
-- Toronto is double teaming Curry on screen and rolls without involving Leonard in the play, and it's been effective. This is a huge advantage for Toronto. Golden State needs to do a better job here.
-- Cousins only sees the floor with the bench unit, he's an absolute defensive liability, and he takes up too much space for Curry, Thompson and Green to operate effectively.

Aside from that? Don't be so damn sloppy with the ball. Some of this was expected after a 9 day lay off, but even still.

Obviously the last eastern conference finals reminded us that dominating games 1 and 2 at home are ultimately meaningless if you can't go and win a game on the road.

That said... I think Golden State is in trouble if they lose game 2. Kawhi isn't going to play sub par all series (unless he's hurt), so I wouldn't want to fall 2 games behind that dude. He's the most dangerous player they've faced in the KD Warriors era. And yes, I know what I said there.

Its always been a bit ridiculous, but its gotten completely ridiculous as of late.

I remember us having a similar discussion a few years back here, when it was still 2-3-2.. Back then the NBA finals were basically played on Tues, Thurs and Sunday and Stanley Cup was on Mon, Wed and Saturday, but the way they did it was stupid, games 1 & 2 Thurs, Sun then 3 on Tues. So the longest layoff was while they remained in the same city.

The common sense (I know rules it out) move at the time I said was game 1Tues, game 2 Thurs, travel with the extra day off, game 3 Sunday, 4 Tues, 5 Thurs, travel with the added day off, 6 Sunday and 7 Tuesday.

NHL has gotten just as bad, Game 1 was Monday 5/27, game 7 (which won't be needed) is slated for Wed June 12.

It's a minor miracle Golden State is only down 5 at the half

If you're GS why don't you feed Cousins down low to slow the game down a bit when you have this lead late in the game.
