OAKLAND -- The Warriors players came first on Friday night, trudging in silence through the tunnel to the locker room after the game. David Lee scowled. Steph Curry tried not to limp. Jarrett Jack stared at a hole in the wall. Next came the fans, defiant at first. They complained about the refs, about Tony Parker. They talked about how there was still time in this series. Plenty of time. "Sunday! Sunday!" chanted Dave Chappelle, who was born in Washington, D.C., but was an avid Warriors fan this evening, perhaps swept up in the tide of Steph Curry and the most enjoyable team to watch in the playoffs.
