Why. Season two games and some tangible and goal sometimes when the ball wasn't going although it affects the body language and energy of the guys and I thought that capital that we as really good shots early that didn't go and you know I just didn't happen for us but I'm really proud of our guys and eleven in a row given all the injuries. Health history. And we flush this one down the toilet we move on you're listening to warriors wrapped box on ninety pints and the team. I welcome back everybody don't ORACLE Arena match assignments along with him now joined by John Dickinson that was the coaches that are view. You heard Steve Kerr talking about. The low energy level in tonight's game that was brought to you by Walnut Creek Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram. Where savings is simple all online all that crew chief dot com. JD at the last half hour I've been basically talking about how. I'm willing to just. Wrote this one away. Yeah it's it's a rare night or the warriors. Just didn't make shots and what you wanna stated that gates. Contested those shots or the warriors missed open shots it. It doesn't really much matter and I think UST correlated this a little bit and Kevin Correia. Mentioned it I think it brought a little bit more clarity to it tonight just the fact that he thought. They really did get a lot of good looks but the shots not falling affected other parts of their game he really thought it. Some of the shots because they were so put it in and out. Just when they were about to make a run. That it can't zap them of their energy year case. It just kind of took away there there there will be keep going it take it the highest level they felt that there was it Jews. That should have been there from a couple of those shots going in and add it in there. They would have been able to make it stronger random mr. Well it's funny because I didn't think of it like that the unit now but now I remember specifically terrain had one that was halfway down from straight away. I can't remember the exact situation but it was. Guarantee it was one of those times when they had a 109 and got it to six it was tank and gotten at the seventh. But it never really break through that barrier and and they had opportunities because it wasn't like that the nuggets were. The score on every possession they were just shooting 42%. Through three quarters. So. Wars as they did it happen that they were due for a game like this because they've been so banged up and yet they've still been waiting. And that's another reason why. Not raise any red flag yet. Now Abby absolutely not mean they hadn't lost a game in 26 days and it is going to be four weeks to game. If they'd got to Christmas here against the cavaliers the last ten lost them Monday night. Sacramento here Oracle's so. Now I think he which if you were gonna say all right Stefan curry get in this. Now two games and a road trip and you gonna come back home in Indies get a missed couple horrid. And not gonna be back until potentially after Christmas the org you can have one loss audited game against the cavaliers are meant the cues the warriors would. Absolutely take that and if he did you just look at it what it take for the nuggets to be able to win this game and win it comfortably. Tonight by fifteen. But it took. Historic. Were shooting me 320s. Have. From the warriors haven't tried it looked it if Stefan curry had been quiet you know he probably at least three doctors say maybe they go four for 39. You know who knows it I look at me it's not to say they would want news adequately it won't play games without him and that's not. It really needs to be product tonight one other little. Mean he. Casualty tonight it's not really big deal it straight month green dream on green. Fell in the fourth quarter and Wednesday elbow that needed to be X ray left elbow X rays were negative on that. I'm not finished fourth concussion protocol every thing obviously he took that helped blow. From Yokich pretty there he'll pitch got them. I'll order for Kevin Durant later on about that betrayed not whiskey tended to. We hear from dream on green tonight. The post game press conference or in the locker room because he was it yet straits there he was obviously pretty upset about it at the moment. It will hear from Durant coming up later but the ranch essentially it said. Hey you know lazy. It wasn't intentional but it happened it will spot happen it was a missed call in you move on from it and you know obviously didn't have an impact. On the game but it's opened it you know you're warriors and you wanna see that that call made just because it's dream on that he took it to adults there. Well interestingly I didn't see the replay but I was listening to him or oil on the radio. And he said that it trademark may have. Accidentally hit Yokich in the face before the play as he was start to make his move not to the extent that joke which ended up elbow and drive by random act and not. You know not that not betray much hit him hard but there was a little contact before it steeped speaker. Asked him what he saw on that end and he said that he really didn't see it. But based on you know what other people were saying he implored the officials to to take a look at to review and I actually was surprised that it didn't get reviewed. Just because any kind of bloated face I thought thought to be accessed. A technical foul at the very least it's I was actually a little bit surprised. While unintentional. But it wasn't a flagrant it's still a technical foul is and if it's unintentional I think it still is supposed to relate. But they didn't as a blow to the head but they didn't want yet it they didn't feel that it needed. Theory computer or did well you know there was also played the first half where David West accidentally elbowed Yokich. And I thought. That play they might take a look at but they didn't so not really sure what's going on there are not sure it was. Altogether that important when it comes down to what what happened in this game tonight a turning her attention to the to the knock it. The player today and talk about it because you know. I could talk about Barton trailer wiles played very nice Yokich is clearly there. Their shatter piece put. This is nice win for them and you know we were talking before the game I told you and coach Keating a spot tonight at the makings of the game the warriors might lose. Just in it it was a team that it's poignant pretty well overall and start define themselves as the season goes on. I speak to deal they're thirteen that put in the category getting better yeah as the season goes on and he'll think there's a lot of teams in the wee bit that I can. Put that on at this point it like to meet they're significantly better. More to gather more organized. Terms of their roles and their talent. Than they were even at the beginning of the year when they had Paul Millsap and I think on the set back to figure out. But I think they're they're playing well I think they're well coached team they beat and they get Yokich. Gary Harris is a guy will Barton to guide it gives the warriors trouble. Every single time he plays against it was a plus nineteen tonight you'll pitch was solid tonight. They're they're just an interest in team their their kind of personal I've always liked trait Lyles and we talked about that I cannot account might hit you hit a couple of years ago. What I've probably talked about tree while that anybody's ever talked about at least in the Bay Area yes exactly at least that area but he cannot announce shops and so I felt like this team I thought was that the team playing well. And athletic enough in enough players to give the warriors trouble. At times in. In the course of the season they've they've beaten the warriors last UC the foresees in a row that got at least one exactly in the they had to edit here holiday nearly done it here cup with not so. I'd like to take curry a way. You put it. At the end of this eleven game run and you have Denver media's buttoned up as they'd been in the last three years and it all just an added up before the game. As as a team that I could seat being lost for the warriors and also back in the game before the game. I think and I am not saying they overlook. You know the nuggets hearing and I I don't think that was the case but the game before the game can be. One of those that led Hewlett slip away often it is kind of works out. Out yet and I I didn't look I don't I couldn't name all five games on Christmas but I more than willing to guarantee Denver's not plane on Christmas. So there's no games tomorrow in the NBA. They don't play on Christmas so in a way the nuggets are committed here tonight saying you know let's. Let's see you all we can do it at night we get two days off and then you know Chris we'll get back to debt meanwhile the warriors they don't have that. About making excuses for but they they had a game like Denver last night but they got a game Monday on Christmas at the marquee game and it's the one everybody's talking about. Yeah an error and the warriors to Italy the other aspect that this is there actually capital walker bar note no media availability or anything like that but. Real there have a don't want there haven't out of practice. This pepper that'll walk through real odd because well it. So it's kind of an I'm sure it'll be something relatively YE rye and again it won't be a date for the immediate comment after the last two days happened games again I don't think it happened. A real practice after two games and no team would do it right but I actually think. Wouldn't it CPA that's a they may not be allowed to view but given the special circumstances that the game be it. So early in. That's his early game can be at twelve noon. And I just. They're gonna caddick get together tomorrow is it team you know before you know before going their separate ways for the evening. And go through we know what they need view. Against the cavaliers on Monday and it it looks like the worst might be healthy here on Monday. Maybe not Stefan curry but they likelier to do it Livingston. And Zaza Pachulia. When we come back from the regular ask it a little more about Seth Curry because I understand there's been. A little bit more talk about his situation and it happened after the game I want to ask you about that. I also wanted to ask you about you know pitch but. He looks to me like maybe the real the real deal. And I know on the first one save them proudly to the party that would but he nice player aren't we come back. It's gonna disgust you listen to warriors wrap up present by Carlos Marco security. This quote easy jokers in the based did. That play you caught the last sentence obviously do. You know it's just cool men who drew harness our whole team went thought it was the officer's file would. Definitely doesn't Sony invested the rest of that's just plain old restaurant rescue crew listed split it can't be perfect you know us as part of game. We discernible from there. You're listening to warriors wrapped box on 957. Big game. I was Kevin Durant talk about a plane which typically go. To Raymond green. Inadvertently within elbow. Didn't get the call a belief joke joke to actually stuck to what he. You hit them yeah any any stake in a candle that was. Oops that's an off its effect I'll go the other way probably get a get reviewed and then yet. At any actually kind of gathered in Jamaican man nice it's right for a death or pass that led away yeah exactly and the warriors he had that was it that was kind of it to fleeting moment Andy to with a warriors might and a and that. Yeah although boy they didn't have many runs and tonight they really did not like to know with their biggest rod was because I'll bet it might only be in. Nine to three years something like that you know they they just couldn't. Get anything going. Consistently. Seth Curry was working out before tonight's game and quite frankly I thought he looked very good news is doing individual work. With one wars coaches trainers. But the drills he was do what he was going at 100%. For sure. And I want you guys the listened to what Steve Kerr had to say when he was asked if curry might play on Christmas this is before the game. I watch about to practice and I've been really encouraged by day's work outs. Moving well. Looks like he's gained confidence in them movement. As far as that the first question Bob myself training staff friends and staff and that's who's involved. In the decision. But I can tell you that. If this were not. Christmas and Cleveland tomorrow. Whenever two days. I don't think any of you would even be asking me about it just happens to be an hour what's up. Maybe you were a bit now with this observers in the guy hasn't had even at 33 game right. So if we weren't playing Cleveland on Christmas and I told you. Stuff hasn't played in 33 in hasn't had any contact at all on the game is 48 hours parties say house to outside play but. Because it's the magnitude game you you know everybody wants to know. But we cannot let that affect our judgment he has kept it would be completely irresponsible he did. Today now I mean there you have it and it L Steve courage in the most polite way possible. Tried to quell it again I and I think he got love Steve Kirk is actually that was the first time work I cannot body was a little sick again questions. And not and not that it you know about that he was agitated about it but it was like look. I'd get that it's Christmas and at the cavs but. We go through this all the time in terms of the night waiting injuries in the information I give. It's this what if this was march 5. You would need to be worried about if curry was plane or not you would even be asked the question. So you don't think he's gonna play a down. Percival like this that I got my head there's no way I would say he would play. I think god wants what I that's what I honestly I think it was the plates and I think he wants I'd play doubtful at once and there may be a conversation. That. If he made saying Allah knocked it. I want hockey coach not Bob Bob Meyers our top of the trainers let's let's all meet. In the training room after the walk through tomorrow and let's talk about this because I feel good that the person he'll play limited minutes whenever you start me yet. You know six minute bursts in whatever five minute burst. Point 25 minutes I still think cooler heads per failed orders Smart anybody and I think I think the worst habit bird. Twice that's already true they've been burned twice already. A little bit by. Kevin Durant won the plane Oklahoma City on an ankle that was ill. Sore enough after that game to work yet in this and an entire week and following that the 34 more games and then straight mongering. Dream on green at issue were working missed the game in Charlotte. And it came back wanted to play game. In Detroit because that's homecoming game added he winds up not point at it tell what Friday night last night. In his return so. I think that's almost got factory in Whittle the fact that the 08 at two guys re aggravating injuries. Because they let him play in. Meaning he'll more meaningful games. Then you know or games that are perceived to be more meaningful more meaningful gains. To the individual they haven't taken big picture approach that they usually eight. And I just don't see him maybe Kerry says he electorate not like it played let me. Maybe says that I don't now. But I don't think he's gonna. Out today which you can take that back securities you're ready he's coming back on the 29 against Charlotte. So that everybody back home to watch more because he missed the game at Charlotte. Before their their ego that's my prediction. I I don't know I kind of think so to do that's that's actually I think Eddie it's reevaluated Tuesday it's in the in all likelihood just because they're not taking tomorrow off right there they're gonna have a loss they're gonna get together tomorrow walked Utica play the game. On Monday. My guess I'll bet they take Tuesday off that maybe curry comes in or maybe they play a little three on three may be places throughout three with the guys and the plane. But for the coaches. But I would bet that they'll take Tuesday off the and it had shootaround on Wednesday. The game on Wednesday they'll get the practice on Thursday. And and I they that would set it up pot. Have we for a return on. The one player I was talking about a little bit before you came. JP was was Andre Iguodala. And I don't think he looks good. And lot. It's done this before where he hasn't looked good the first half of the season. And it. You start to worry about it and sure enough when it went everything matters he's always. Been reliable. It's kind of like. Gosh we'd like dispersants. Keep thinking this might be the year that they fall this might be the year that they fall. And I ask it again I wonder if this might be the year where Iguodala takes a step back when they need him I mean he. And he knows his body better than anyone who are you are you at all concerned. That dollar now I'm not because I know that I know that he knows what he needs to right. And I think that gave them an opportunity right and I actually wouldn't be surprised if once the warriors get healthy whatever else if they shut him down for a lot I wouldn't be surprised if they keep in two weeks off. It just can't accuse him recharged at some point maybe it's not coming. Right after the new year here in January may be its surrounding the all star break or. Is that there's want it gaps in the schedule it's amazing it sickened about this eight. Thinking about Christmas added three more games next week. And they're critical that road trip that first weekend of the year. She's a half over at that point I mean and if you think about it. All the games and it feels like just in from the from the point of the season started. It feels like there's just that game after game after game it's amazing it doesn't seem like there's been all this off time for all the the conversation that's been about. The news schedules so to speak up I think they'll find time to get him an extended rest to get rejuvenated. As they start to gear up for the second half our here's the last question four yeah. Who was the best warrior tonight. It's a tough I know it is that's why I asked me David West didn't even know David West didn't even I mean he missed a couple of those seventeen footer and missed an easy one incited. Boy that's a tough though the real thing. It. Boy and it was JaVale me. It wasn't McKeon no. I. Iran I said I set McCall. Just because. He wasn't noticeably like OC did it. I was probably to rant and even they get to rant on about median and hit three through that Iran had a bad night six of seven team. I mean it's. Jordan bell. And a few months. I JD well.
