gool signs pointing towards stefan currie suiting up for the warriors playoff opener saturday night against the denver nuggets . curry did scrimmage with the team today for the first time since spraining his left foot. nearly a month ago, he said. his condition is good, but he also said there is a little discomfort in the foot, but that
he doesn't have to be 100% to play and that is not at risk of further injury if he does play. you can see what the help of little draymond there. he went through his normal post practice routine today at chase will be re evaluated tomorrow before a final decision is made. and he will be on a yet to be determined minutes restriction when he does return. everything about it was it was awesome. obviously. the moment. get ready for playoffs. um me being out for four weeks, so every step has been in the right direction in terms of trying to get back out there, but never enjoyed practice so much. you know, i see the lights in the tunnel right now. alright as for saturday's matchup, denver has led by the reigning most valuable player, nicola yokich, who will almost certainly when the m v p award again this year, the nuggets did beat the warriors three of the four times they played this year. but draymond green didn't play in any of those games and steph clan, wiggins sat out another of
those losses. the warriors, they've had a strange season. overall, they started 18 and two, but they slumped down the stretch. they lost 16 of 23 before closing out the season with five straight wins. not even the team knows what to expect. we can be a team that loses early or when it all which is kind of been something we've been struggling with all year, and i think it comes down to the level of focus that we come with a different team now, so i don't have expectations. um i don't. i'm not going into this. these playoffs thinking are we're going to do this or we're going to do that, in a lot of ways makes it really fun. maybe not as much fun as having one of the greatest rosters ever assembled. i think he'd choose that. instead they were pretty good roster, though the a's they have . they may have the 29th highest payroll in the league, but they ranked much higher when it comes to excitement so far, and one big reason outfielder christian patchy, who came over in the mendelssohn trade with atlanta.
here he is today versus the raise the middle left center field will score. smith to third in the ball gets past the center fielder and it rolls all the way to the wall to score. parching patches. get a score. it's three. nothing is with the little league home run basically single in a two run error. aids take the 33 love. lead on the race. third inning. sean murphy hardline drive over kevin care myers head chad pender is racing around the bases. he's going to score all the way from first base is taking 4 to 1 lead another of the a's newcomers. it's kind of a career minor leaguer billy mckinney. he's looking to stick with the big club, and he may do just that if he makes blaze like that one right there. great catch on taylor walls, the a's win at 6 to 3. they take three of four from the reigning american league east champs. and now it's off to toronto for three games before monday's home opener with
no rain against those orioles. alright, we'll call this next one dedicated to your job. okay dedicated to your job. check this out. we go back to tampa. mike zunino flies out to the aforementioned billy mckinney, who showed us how he can make catches. well, he's got an arm to throws a rocket elvis andrews . he's going to tag a sliding manuel margot. nice play. but look at the umpire. oh watch this and even better play by hunter wendelstedt, who makes the coal right there while he's going down from his backside. that's what 25 years. 25 years of experience gets you and this is called the assist of the night. we're in new york city. random guy. ah is going to finish this one off. look at the bottle flip and then this guy wow! stop okay, they plan that just walking by. i don't think they know each other. i'm going to give that an eight out of 10. and i can't give someone who happened to be catching it on camera to each other, but not a
camera to each other, but not a perfect score because all i'm saying is, if they took all the money they spent trying to make a decent hulk movie, they could probably just make an actual hulk. that is apt and amusing. i think i shall share that with amy farrah fowler. she'll appreciate the witticism. thank you. it'll also help improve her initial impression of you. so what's going on with you two? well, the status is as it always was. she's a girl. she's a friend. she is not my-- please forgive me for doing this-- "girlfriend." right, right. so you're still just texting and e-mailing? you don't feel any need to hang out with her, you know-- be in the same room? leonard, you are my best friend. i've known you for seven years, and i can barely tolerate sitting on the couch with you. imagine my attitude regarding prolonged physical proximity to amy farrah fowler.
got it. i sense judgment on your part. no, no. maybe a little. may i suggest that your criticism is based on jealousy? jealousy? what do i have to be jealous of? i have a functioning and satisfying relationship with a female. you have none. oh, right. that. jealousy is an ugly green-eyed monster-- not unlike the hulk-- who, by the way, also has a girlfriend. in this iteration, jennifer connelly, whom you may recall as the girlfriend of russell crowe in a beautiful mind, a feel-good romp if there ever was one. i'm not jealous. (grunts like the hulk) leonard not jealous. ♪ our whole universe was in a hot, dense state ♪ ♪ then nearly 14 billion years ago expansion started... wait! ♪ ♪ the earth began to cool ♪ ♪ the autotrophs began to drool, neanderthals developed tools ♪
