07:48 PM ET 04.26 | It's been six days since David Lee's injury, and because the Warriors performed so brilliantly without him, almost all of the Warrior fans have forgotten that it ever happened. Unfortunately for the Dubs, Lee's injury won't be forgotten, and at some point in this series, or the next, it's going to come back and haunt them. Lee will be sitting on the bench with his head down, longing to be on the court with this teammates to help, but it's just not going to happen. Right now, however, the Warriors are looking to gain a 3-1 stranglehold on the series by winning their two home games. This is definitely within reach, as the Nuggets finished just 19-22 on the road. Harrison Barnes, Klay Thompson, and Stephen Curry, however, have no idea what kind of ambitious home crowd they're going home to. If you're going to the game, you might want to bring some ear plugs!

Mike Malone played important role in the system. Mark Jackson is a players coach. The players have all been given a chance and time to develop. No selfish attitudes. Every player on the team speaks so highly of him. They have a great group of personalities.

This is very true. I said a couple weeks ago that the biggest difference between this year's and last year's team is Steph's health. He is becoming one of the best pgs in the league.

With that said, Jackson deserves a ton of credit for getting these guys to care about the team over individual accomplishments. He has also gotten them to care on defense. He should be a coach of the year candidate - like top three - for sure.

LMAO!

Well he's closer (but not close) than Greg Jennings.

AC. I can't even get my fingers to do that.

Wow, all the early comments - across all the NBA posts this morning - are from people whose handle names start with vowels.

This just has to be said, so don't take it personally, it is not intended to be.

Is it just a coincidence that they all begin A and the banned word ***hole also begins with A.

Success at high levels means each member of the team playing their role properly. From owner right down to trainers, medical coaching staff and players. It's not fair to single out one or two people as the main reason for winning or losing. If one member does not perform his duty the whole team fails... so let's not divide and conquer but rather praise the entire organization for their hardwork....and by the way was KG crying lastnight? Lol....

Knicks are the most amazing team in the world; even in playoffs we find minutes for our bench warmers.

Maybe Melo told KG his lady smelled like digested and expelled Honey Oat Cheerios.
