Looney has one of his best games ever with 21 points, 12 rebounds.

Poole, Klay and Wiggins hit some big shots as well. A very strong comeback by the Warriors by going on a 24-7 run. The Mavs started off shooting red hot, but the Warriors remained resilient, Looney got some easy buckets. And to cap it all off, the Steph Curry “put em to sleep” celebration.

“We’re going to hell, I mean San Francisco,” Barkley said on “Inside the NBA,” who will be traveling to the Bay Area with the TNT crew to broadcast the Warriors-Mavs series.

“I hate San Francisco,” Barkley continued as the rest of the crew confusingly asked him why. “I just don’t like it. I have to like a city because y'all like it?”

full quotes/more context to the quote in the title:

"as a guy gets older, it's unfair for us to ask him to still be the same guy he was 5, 10 years ago. Listen, playing point guard at Chris's size, he's the best leader I've seen in the nba, think about this, he's won every single place he's been and if you can't appriciate that you really don't know anything about basketball as a fan. I mean, winning follows Chris around, when Golden State was pretty much unbeatable, who's the only team that had them down 3-2 until Chris blew out his hamstring, his resume is impecable."

conversation was on 'the Ryen Russillo podcast'.

And people like Shaq were really saying Smart was not gonna make a difference. He's the damn DPOY for a reason. His 24/9/12 was obviously important but his defense was such a huge difference maker in game 2.
