I get 900 from SSD no food stamps. rent for a room is 500, not much left after bills, gas etc..

The saddest thing about weekends, is no Stu.

getting killed while going out to eat seems to be a new trend ey

I am glad I have it, but doesn't allow for any real outtings, nice food entertainment etc.. Just enough to live day to day.

That was terrible. Homeless problem is getting out of hand everywhere something has to be done

That area in montebello has had homeless since at least the 80s

Cynthia our poor get help from the gov.. other countries do not have the help for the needy like we do .

I sleep underneath a bridge and work picking grapes

So lets take all the knives away!

He was arrested in Washington too

Don't know what the deal was today, but I turned it off before 1st quarter was over. I live the Warriors, but 7 turnovers in 1 quarter, is not even trying! I don't watch games like that!! I'm furious!!!

The only thing I am mad about is the turnovers but everything else is okay because the Spurs couldn’t miss a three in the second half.

Mark Jackson is still jealous that he isn’t coaching the Warriors. He helped them get better, but couldn’t get them over the hump. He needs to stop hating on them.

Yeah what's up with a tech foul when West was not even at the bench
Again obviously refs had to help make game 5 happen

Got home from work and Mom was almost crying. Saying GSW won’t make it out of this series. I had to calm her down! Lol

Momma gotta think possible. You win 3 in a row and loose 1 game. Come now give an a break. They are humans too

Thm young bucks out played us from start to finish today. I ain't mad at the. But they should be capable of winning 1 game. They ate pro's right.

It don't matter about the Pelicans name it's all about how they play and the Warriors better step up their game or they won't repeat as champions.

The Spurs have had 4 games to figure out the 8 guys the dubs are utilizing ... players 9- 12 are more than capable of giving a different look n contributing more.

So...stay away from Twitter. It’s depressing! 🙄 And don’t listen to tv shows either. They will say Warriors are finished.

Really had my fingers crossed on Draymonds late 3 - then airball and turnover on seconds ... comp comp - Draymond's effort was exceptional today and is showing good control with his body.

It still shocks me that Pelicans series was the only sweep..Wow...just spectacular. Every team is bringing their ‘A’ game

Draymond played with energy tonight. I had a feeling they could end it with a win but the Spurs pulled it out at the end and the Warriors didn’t have a fight back spirit.

Come on man are you kidding me? The Spurs played great defense and made a lot of shots they missed in the first three games.

Pelicans gonna be so fresh and warriors tired, or does it balance out since KD, Dray and Klay missed a lot of games in regular season

Agreed. More time for Steph. Missed the game today, but will watch after I fly back from Idaho! What happened besides turnovers?

I enjoyed the brawl. It's Finals you fight hard or die....Period No excuses. My team bangs consistently we hot the nxt 1. Watch

I'm a spurs fan. Hurts knowing umur team can't win, but nothing hurts more than my team given a pity win, rather lose a streak.

If Steph isn’t healthy by Game 6 or 7, will Shaun Livingston fill in for Curry for the remainder of the first round?

Money seems to always matter. What if the Warriors played for money and lost just for a game 7? That would be AWFUL.

This is a tough loss but does not matter much. I will always be supportive no matter the turnout of the game

Refs so effin petty when it comes to our dubs. Petty @$$$ refs. Werk my dayum nerves. Just goes to show. We can never catch a break

I like that the warriors are having to get in a prison yard battle early in the playoffs. That was a brutal game.

Warriors shouldn’t be mad after this loss and shouldn’t be that worried but they do need to slow the turnovers.

Theory: deliberately extending the series cause curry isn't ready yet

Pelicans unexpected sweep of blazers

If Curry don’t play against New Orleans this team have no chance.

The Warriors lost on purpose to give their secret weapon - Steph Curry more recovery time. Just thinking about the possibilities.

Started off waay too slow! Come on Warriors! Let’s do this back at home

Win at home!

Spurs playing physical, why Zaza and Bell on bench put them in

Warrior need to finish this series at home

Somehow i knew this would happen

now they can win this round at home.

Get them Tuesday

Papa, Saint and Kelenna are way better than Kenny, Shaq and Chuckles. Shaq and Chuckles get incoherent sometimes. And when Clark Kellogg joined the March Madness team with them, he even made Kenny look bad. Clark is good.

don't give Grant TOO much grief about saying Tonight...the players were doing it after last weekend's day game as well

Do you think the Warriors are going to keep the same lineup going against the Pelicans? What impact do you think Ian Clark is going to have in this series against his former team?

If KD, Steph, Klay and DayDay all play at their best, you get 25-30 points from the Splash Triplets and a triple double from DayDay. And nobody can touch them. But how often has it happened?

Is there a site where I can watch warriors game later. Where I’m at there’s a breaking news and really not showing bucks game so I think they won’t show warriors game either. TIA.

How blessed are we to have Cook running the point with Steph out? It’s been a long time since I have yelled “NOOOO” when our back up point pulls up from behind the arc

Masx Kellerman not giving any love....need to quiet him down

New Orleans is better without boogie....as are the kings...Drew or False--- the Warriors have someone who can handle the brow one on one?

Let’s go guys!!! If I can’t watch I’ll get my warrior notifications. (From the app) Good to see ya!!! Also check in with you guys afterwards.

hello... I wanna say 😊good luck to warriors squad.... For game 4... ..focus. defense and list turnovers.. Drive the ball into the rim fast... Goidluck... Waiting for curry back ☝️☝️☝️

Dubs better match up than Portland and should allow Steph to rest even longer. Be nice to have him back to sweep Houston thou :)

I put ALL my Money on GSW. Draymond you have to keep your composure. You know what LBJ did in 2016 with that B.S. flagrant foul.

You know what i saw a few games I came to see. J. MCGee was doing 3's at warm up and was shooting 80%. I think Kerr should let him do some! Hehehe

Going to have a big dinner for my hubby and the game. Today is his b-day and were watching the Warriors what fun today will be!! #DubNation

No one is talking about Warriors struggling anymore, but now they are saying how weak Spurs are, so still not getting that credit

Let's finish out the series with the spurs. Don't look ahead, don't want to hex it even though will probably broom it!

Warriors winning by 6 tonight because that will be the number of championships the franchise will have at the end of this season.

Who do the warriors want to avoid in the conference finals and play off finals? Also, thoughts against the wolves?

After season over trade for Anthony Davis for draymond green, Andre and maybe draft pick or Looney?

I think this is the first time in a long time that the playoffs both West and East are much more competitive.

WAAARIIIOOORSSS BABY #FYT #DUBNATION #STRENGTHINNUMBERS #SUPERVILLAINS

Draymond missing layups turnovers klay bricks i hate that come on its time to grind. We bring out Nick young i knew we were doomed

NBA playoff pool for player is puny. $20 total for all teams all players. Estimate is players on champ team get $220,000.

Zaza, will be needed for the next round.

Who will the Ws throw at Anthony Davis?

Adoption update on Vitani, now Vinni! “In December I adopted Vitani. I've since renamed her Vinni after my favorite artist Vincent Van Gogh, who also lost an ear. She has adapted wonderfully to her new home. She enjoys multiple long walks daily - in the neighborhood, at the park, and all around the Lake Hodges area. She also loves the company of our cat! She likes to affectionately lick him and being in his presence seems to make her tail wag, which he kindly tolerates. She is such a delight to have the company of and is truly my dream dog! We share all the same favorite hobbies like camping, hiking, and cuddling, and we do them as often as we can! She'll be graduating obedience school in a couple weeks and she is such a quick learner and is so eager to please. My life has basically improved in every way since she became a part of my family. Life is seriously better with a dog!” #AdoptionUpdate ...
