Watching that last play that led to the Iguodala 3, I swear Curry traveled. He shuffled both feet after stopping his dribble. Anyone else notice this?

Edit: Nevermind, just saw this ☹️

Among some other missed calls in their L2M report, NBA says Steph Curry travelled with 15.3 seconds to go in the 4th Q during the sequence that led to the Iggy 3.

I've said it before. L2M stands for "How we screwed the Raptors this time". 

Seriously, Curry is the guy with the ball and trapped. You watch for defense fouling or ball handler traveling. Nothing else. 

Raps need to lead by 10 or more so the screwing doesnt screw us.

I think they are trying to get curry to work defensively, it's not as much as trying to score. The problem is, green is so bad, curry doesn't even have to try all that hard to stop him ...


Then run him through screens. You'll either make him work or get a switch on somebody who is better equipped to make Curry work if that is still part of the goal and is favorable to team's offense.

Game 2 of Raptors-Warriors ranks as the 2nd-highest English-language sports broadcast of the year in Canada, behind the Super Bowl. In Toronto, It had a share of 68%, meaning that more than 2/3 of all people watching TV in the city on Sunday night were tuned in to the game.

Jeff, surprised you missed a golden opportunity to complain that we turned in a dud when we had a lot of first time fans watching the game. All this winning recently is making you soft, soon you will be a true believer like lx :)

A dud? Meh, it was a brutal 6min. Imo we outplayed them the first half and it was pretty even in the 4th. It's unfortunate that we laid such an egg in the 3rd quarter.

Is Charles Barkley assigned to NBA TV and taken off ESPN Inside the NBA for the finals? I think he once mentioned something to this effect a while back

I could be wrong, but I THINK Inside the NBA is done for the year. At least that what I could swear I heard Ernie say after the conference finals. I know Chuck was working NBA TV the first two games in Toronto, but he said he’s NOT going to the Bay, and is heading off to golf and fish. He’s definitely done for the season.

Yep, Inside the NBA is done once the conference finals are over

Ahh I see. I wonder why. Often fun to gear Shaq and Charles going at it.

Does ABC do the finals, stateside?
