    Great win against the Rockets but the whole contest just seemed "meh" as far as the energy level from the players. It's like none of the teams care about seeding or home court anymore. Hopefully this W's team does get the 4th because they look like a team with some guys who can't stand the site of each other anymore.

    What game were you watching to draw this conclusion? LOL. That's absurd.

    How's it absurd? Just didn't have a playoff feel to it. Both teams seem to be a little burnt out right now and can't wait for the playoffs to begin.

    The Rockets were on a 9 game winning streak and had a 3-0 record to date in the regular season against the Warriors. You don't think they were motivated to win that game, considering they were at full strength and at home? And conversely the Warriors hadn't won a game all year against them, and were without Durant. Steph Curry said before the game it was important to them and they were taking them seriously. From the play I saw on the court, neither team looked lethargic and/or uninterested. Both were fighting for the game which maybe bogged it down a bit and may have been construed as lack of effort. But the Warriors locked down defensively against the Rockets and held them in check for most of the night, sans their late run.

    Its interesting how the Warriors play better as a team without Durant. No denying he's a brilliant player but the defensive intensity in OKC, the ball movement and shot selection appeared so much better again just as it did in Houston.
    I wonder if the get lazy knowing they have Durant and that he will bail them out with some ISO ball.
    Getting dominated on the boards is still an issue but they've looked good.

    Stephen Adams is a handful down low.

    What a shame for Cousins. Worked so hard to come back from injury and now this. I wish him the best.

    The laziness and lethargy was back again last night in San Antonio.
