Warriors fans -- Join the conversation with Drew Shiller and Grant Liffmann as they break down Game 3! ...

 

Comment on Facebook

Chris Mullin, Tim Hardaway, and Mitch Richmond were all in the arena. It is so cool to see greatness in Street clothes attending basketball. I always stand and clap.

I love the Warriors when they play well. If they play good defense and offense they are one tough team to beat especially when they play inside Oracle Arena. Warriors will win game 4 and go up 3-1.

Warriors have won 16 straight home playoff games. Houston has a problem in game 4. The Warriors have confidence in this series. I hope they still feel threatened so Houston doesn’t win on Tuesday.

Rockets will play hard on Tuesday. It will likely be close through the first half and at halftime. If the Warriors make a third quarter run then they should win.

Klay is so calm compared to every other Warrior. He rarely gets technicals and swears like Draymond, KD, and Steph.

It was so awkward in the last few seconds when Young got a foul and someone from the rockets just placed the ball on the floor like "here you go..."

I really like Livingston when he shoots and scores well. I have the same outlook on Iguodala and West. Those three are the bench leaders.

Draymond Green is the kind of player that can score 0 points but still be one of the most important players on the floor

Let's not forget that Draymond is the ONLY player to have a triple-double with points not being one of the stats!

Warriors are one challenging team to beat inside Oracle during the playoffs. I notice how well they play at home versus on the road. They need to take advantage of being at home on Tuesday.

Steve Kerr is masterful at drawing up out of bounds plays. He knows exactly how and when to call the right play

On another note on defense, Curry is always getting bullied on the defensive end for the Warriors. Houston just loves to pick on Steph on defense.

The ref wants to give t foul to draymond. Ref night is not completed if they don't give draymond green T foul lol ✌️✌️

Warriors should get some rest and practice to be prepared for Tuesday knowing that it will not be an easy game.

Everyone knew that Curry was going to wake up the question was WHEN is he going to wake up. The Rockets woke up to a nightmare.

The Warriors can't offer Looney more than the $2.23 million option because they declined it so if a team offers more than he will probably take the pay day

How does Dray say "warriors are best in transition and then CP3 tries to say Houston is best when they get out in transition" I think Houston wants to be good in transition but that is not their game 😳

I said it some 3sss from steph and klay
Some blocks and good defence that what we needed
I was right👑😁💙💛🏀🏀🔥🔥

Do you think Steph got going when he stoped overthinking, and just went with muscle memory( for lack of a better term)

I love that Nick Young sunk those two free throws to make it Houston's worst playoff lost ever with the 41 points!

Was David West a DNP? I know looney n bell got the big minutes but surprised he didnt get in during garbaage time.

Monumental blowout statement. Can Houston recover? This may be one blowout too many. It plays with your mind.

It was a pleasure to see three of RUN TMC after a long time. Although I am a GSW fan for over 25 years, I hope to go to Oracle Arena one day to watch playoffs someday.

Lisa, I just felt like Dray was helping him not hit the floor hard. I thought Dray was trying to be nice. Kinda!

Stephen A. Smith said that Houston softened their defense, and Steph's confidence went through the roof.

Klay is exquisite 😍

Somehow I missed that.. what did Steph say?

Klay is the best, love his sense of humor and wit.

He just let out all the frustration that's been building up. When Steph plays at this level, this is what makes teams fear.

Thank you Klay Thompson for saying what you say about Curry that was wrong to say that but he had h i s moment last night

This is my F !?#ing house - Curry

It is f'ing house. Go Warriors.

dont do that in your home kids...

Klay is funny

Houston Rockets has major issues with Curry,now and Warriors.

Rick Jones Robert Jones this was pretty funny

Kim 😂🤦🏻‍♂️

ooh. the nose Klay 🌸🌸🌸

Warriors are back in business. 41 points is not bad.

Ja ja ja,,,

AWEEE

Yosemite could do a MUCH better job with recycling and make fewer one use utensils and straws available. I was pretty disappointed.

Are those plants then reintroduced to the natural settings?

That is GREAT! I worked on hotel desks and sang in the bars in 1975.

thats amazing

Yosemite National Park

We know it's hard to find a place to park on busy days, but please park in designated parking areas and turnouts. Doing so protects sensitive areas, allows traffic to flow unobstructed, and helps you avoid fines and/or towing bills. The best way to find parking is to arrive early—by midmorning. ...

Did they all get tickets? Unfortunately it is time for the National Park Service and state parks to start raising fees. I would rather pay $80 a pop and find reasonable numbers of people in the parks. If the price doubles and half the people stop coming, the parks still make what they are today. I highly doubt national parks would lose that many people so not only would it cut down on numbers, but the parks would be making more money. Yeah it would suck for people like me, but that is where budgeting comes in handy. People learn how to budget and they can afford elite costs. It took my little family over a year to save up for Yellowstone. Everything possible went wrong with the trip, but it will be a forever memory that we laugh at less than a year later. Raise the costs of the parks to balance the supply and demand. It will help "preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations." I just hope one day we can make it out there in March one year.

They need to not let so many people in the park at once! I've been there when it was busy and there was no way we could even get out of our car. The traffic was so bad it was like being in LA. It just ruins it for everyone there for it to be that crowded.

When we go to European attractions, they always charge non residents more! And, rangers need to give big fat tickets to those who break parking rules, and trespass in protected areas.

We camp in the valley at least twice a year. We had reservations to go up to Yosemite for a week in May of last year. We entered the park on a Sunday morning. The traffic was so bad, it took us “2 hours” to get from the tunnel view to Upper Pines (I’m not exaggerating). Ridiculous!!! All the way down, there were signs saying “no parking available in the valley”. Yet the cars were still pouring in. They definitely need to restrict the numbers entering the park.

We tried to get to Glacier Point yesterday and there was alot of traffic backed up the switchbacks waiting to get a parking space. We turned around and went back to the other overlook. There was also alot of cars parked along the road between the Sentinal Dome and Mono Meadows trailheads. I would like to see the NPS extend shuttlebus service to Glacier point as an alt transport. It would also be useful for hikers going up or down "4 mile" and "Panorama" trails. as well as the former mentioned.

I have to say...what the hell has happened up there? I lived in Merced about 10 years ago. I would drive up once a week just to enjoy. Parking was never an issue.

Sounds like maybe the park should only allow a certain number of vehicles in and that's it. Maybe time to start selling advanced passes.

The Park Service is decades in remiss for addressing the increasing visitation and demand on the park.

I know that just this year additional parking was created in the Merced plan, but it is far too little. A greater scale of shuttles and outside the park facilities need to be created.

Penalizing visitors that are allowed to enter the park for the simple reason of not being able to find adequate parking to get out of their cars, is simply wrong. Bordering on negligent administrative behavior.

Solve the problem, not the symptoms, please.

I have been coming to the park regularly for 30 years. This was a problem on my first visit 30 years ago, and now is a crisis.

Time to build a parking structure outside the valley! Either that or raise entry fees on overseas tourists that will visit anyways, in order to fund projects to protect Yosemite's nature.

Expand the towing departments in the park and tow them all, fine them for the towing and destruction of protected wilderness.

Yosemite is a treasure, but needs to improve it's approach to the National Parks. Such as Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone. It's time to develop a parking garage system in non-sensitive areas. An improved transportation system beyond the park to see the Park in a Natural setting. A combination or improved parking and transportation throughout the park...The plan to develop this has not been seen to it's completion.

It's called respect, people. Follow the rules or stay home. Oh, and NO ONE cares to see your carvings all over everything. I don't care if YOU and your bf/gf/bff were there or who you 🖤. Knock it off.

The park has been beautiful this week and not super overcrowded, plenty of parking in the valley, but Glacier Point is ridiculous. You shouldn't let people drive up there. Allow shuttles only. We waited over an hour to park, there was no way to turn around and hundreds of car engines are spewing pollution while they wait! RVs taking up spots, a Yosemite bus having trouble making turns. It was an absolute nightmare. Yoy have got to do something about this issue.

I just came back from my first visit to Yosemite and found the park shuttle buses to be a Godsend. I left the rental at Half Dome Village and hopped on the bus. No worries about traffic congestion, no headaches in finding a parking space at the points of interest and no trying to find my way around the park. If the park service had bus service up to Glacier Point, I wouldnt have driven at all.

A fee increase that much will not happen . Zinke already backed off due to overwhelming public pressure. It was too high an increase. So that argument for it is now moot. Many forget or dont know that increases per each park's choice have since been made after the initial proposal So they are getting slightly more $$ now While some here can argue for a huge increase you see what the general outdoors living public does not want. I'm not gonna go back n forth here . It does nothing to debate with each other here... Raise the fines for parking illegally and other traffic offenses. Add an NPS donation line item on the tax return. Streamline the internal NPS system that deals with infrastructure conservation, preservation, and improvements . Its a red tape tar pit right now where any proposals take years to effectivelly see them completed. Theres my suggestions I've written to my congressman / senators.And you all should too insteading of preaching to your own

I feel like we went before the secret got out, mom. Gail Mathes. Of course we usually parked in our camping spot and took the buses around.

I was two times in US National Parks from France and I NEVER park outside from the parking lots, NEVER, even in Yellowstone where it’s very hard to find a place to park. I only wait ... it’s my respect ✊ for nature and Rangers job !

This chaos is nothing but parks inability to manage influx of visitors! Managing a decent parking space as the crowd is increasing during peak season is a must! Or it is not too far when ot will be disastrous for visitors and the park/employees! We have limited our visits thinking of the failed system they have created every year on year!

It hasn't helped that the park has actively been removing parking spaces, especially in the Valley. The installation of curbs has made it impossible to pull over for emergency vehicles.

Instead of banning all private autos and building more parking lots and the other drastic solutions just limit the number of cars allowed in. Yosemite used to stop cars at the gates a few years ago if the Valley was gridlocked but for some reason has stopped doing this the past few years.

We try and stay away from Yosemite in Summer lol! There are many beautiful parks in California that are less of a headache. I guess it depends if you don't mind sitting in gridlock, pressed in by Summer crowds. Defeats the purpose of getting away to the great outdoors though...

Too many people visit the parks and have absolutely no respect for them! Letting too many people in will only lead to ruining our national treasures!

Yosemite Rangers need to control the admission to the park!!! I hate going there during late spring and summer. Always overcrowded everywhere inside the park. I feel so sorry for the animals. Im sorry to say but its disgraceful.

This is what happens when there's So Many people allowed in the park- So crowded that there's no where To park.
I'm not condoning what they did but fault can be applied to the situation created by the way the park is currently run.

Protect the resource! The Organic Act allows us to preserve the park for this generation and the next. Ticketing and removing cars should be a straightforward decision. We do not need to accommodate all people all of the time. Thank you for this difficult work!

I keep telling people the place is dead on weekdays during the off season which is breathtakingly majestic. I've decided decades ago I'll never be able to visit during the summer.

Nice. It would be even nicer if y'all would enforce the 35mph speed limits on Wawona and Glacier Point Roads... nobody wants to hit a deer... but everyone drives so aggresively... most of them California license plates... I thought Californians were supposed to be chill. The Rangers need to stop shaking down the hippies and start changing the driving culture at Yosemite. If only for the wildlife.... #RunYourParkRight

Will the big oak flat wilderness office open after May 21 so we can pick up wilderness permit there? Thanks.

Is the east side of highway 120 already open all the way up to Tioga pass?

Oh we are coming for a visit from UK in 2 weeks time.... Is the weather going to be better..... I'm very excited... Xx

Will there be any services or lodging available in the first 10 days to two weeks?

Yay!!! Headed there for my first visit on June 1st. Cannot wait! Was so hoping it would be open!

That Black bear has a cinnamon color to its coat.Thought it was a grizzly,at first till I looked closer.And I realize ,Yosemite,is too south for Grizzly!

Are cyclist now allowed prior to Monday?

These are a Few of my FAVORITE THINGS!!!!!!!! (Julie Andrews!) (For anybody who knows what I'm singing!!!!!)

Will any access to mariposa be open even to walk? It's one of the reasons we are coming!

Tioga Pass opening makes it hard to concentrate at work 😁

Can I just say that “liking “ Yosemite National Park on Facebook is one of the best things I have done in the cyber world. I love the serenity of the pictures and the reminder that peace and calm still exist and can be found if we only stop to look for them.☺️

Seems really early this year, is white wolf soon to follow?

if campgrounds are not open, is there any overnight camping allowed? Will Tuolumne meadows campground possibly open any earlier than July 14th?

Hi, does that mean that the trail to El Capitan is accessible as well? Planning the hike for the first weekend in June and hope it’ll work out :)

Lembert dome September 2017. Going back in 2018

Jodi Faust Michaela Tempas this is so exciting!!

Thank you for hearing my hopes!! Will be there sat-thurs and was really hoping it would open during that time!

As a former resident of Mammoth Lakes, California, this is the day we all waited for ... so we could get into Yosemite National Park. I was so fortunate to live in this beautiful area for 2 years. Love the Sierras.

I rode with my dad in 1951 from the west over the Tioga Pass road to Saddlebag Lake. I don’t recall the ride. I was 6 years old. However, my dad told me about the road conditions back then. A piece of cake in this age! Very spectacular!

We have driven Tioga road a number of times since 1981. Ate breakfast at the Tioga Pass Lodge on one trip. Beautiful drive, but sometimes a little scary for someone from Mississippi.

Ohhhh. I wanted to ride it on my bike this weekend but the weather forecast dissuaded me. Maybe next year!

Annett I can show you Tuolumne!!!!

We are headed there in kust less than 2 weeks. Our first time visiting. Can't wait.
Ralph, Brandi, and Logan

Leaving tomorrow for Yosemite.thanks for the update. Very excited.i was there when I was young and they had the firefalls
