Delikado ang Warriors. Basin karong gabii ma tigbak na sila

This year's Finals series isn't over yet. Golden State has been here before. Toronto has not. But the end is in sight.

"It's not a good feeling right now, obviously, but like you said, we have been on both sides of it," Curry said. "And for us, it's an opportunity for us to just flip this whole series on its head. It sounds cliche, and for us that's literally the only way we're going to get back in this series, is give everything we got for 48 minutes, everybody that sets foot on that floor in Game 5.

"In our locker room, we're talking about believing. Everybody out there believes that we can get this done. We got to. We can draw on those experiences that we had back in the day and see what happens."

Players and coaches will always say the right things after a tough loss. It's what they've been taught to do. Still, Friday night had a different feeling to it. The typical swagger of these Warriors was gone. The five-year run seemed to finally be wearing them down.

Oracle Arena may have just witnessed its final performance. That crowd walked out knowing Golden State's dynasty is on its last legs.

Kerr and the Warriors have taken a few haymakers from the Raptors, and they don't seem to have a counter. It's hard to blame them.

Without Durant, with Thompson and Looney hurt, with DeMarcus Cousins playing at half speed, the Warriors don't have what it takes to beat a hungry and talented Raptors team. Depth will always be sacrificed when you amass the level of talent that Golden State possesses. You just don't expect the injuries to happen all at once.

Most great teams reach this point, and it often arrives without warning.

The 1980s Celtics and Lakers were stopped by the "Bad Boys" Pistons, and those Pistons then fell to Michael Jordan's Bulls. The early 2000s Lakers couldn't handle a toxic mix of personalities, and the 2004 Pistons outworked them. The Heat's "Big Three" of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh wilted because they didn't have enough juice to run it back for the fourth time, and the 2014 Spurs blew right past them with Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, who is on his way to the award once again with the Raptors.

The Warriors looked dead tired. Curry's 43-minute, 47-point performance in Game 3 took its toll. He scored 27 points Friday but shot just 9-of-22 from the field and 2-of-9 from beyond the arc, hitting front rim on multiple deep attempts and missing his usual burst to the rim on drives. The intensity and defensive prowess from Draymond Green was seen but mainly in the first half.

"Oh, Draymond played so hard out there tonight," Kerr said when asked to compare Green's play in the first half to the final 24 minutes. "The first half, the intensity was incredible. Just to see the athleticism and the defensive energy by both teams. It was amazing. Draymond is always at the center of all that. One of the best defender's I've ever seen. He's flying around and doing his thing and covering everybody.

"And so, Draymond always makes a huge impact on the game. And I thought he did again tonight, but again, it was a group effort. And we didn't have enough as a group to win the game."

Without the services of Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney in Game 3, Golden State really didn't stand a chance. Even with a superhuman effort from Stephen Curry, the Warriors simply didn't have enough bodies to compete with the Raptors.

The returns of Thompson and Looney for Game 4 meant the Warriors would get back on track, right? No, their heroic returns - Thompson scored a team-high 28 points in 42 minutes, and Looney added 10 points and six rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench - couldn't erase the physical, mental and emotional fatigue caused by five consecutive trips to the NBA Finals.

"Klay was amazing," Steve Kerr said after Game 4. "With a tweaked hamstring to do what he did. Looney as well, coming in and playing 20 minutes given his injury status. So, both these guys - they're warriors. No pun intended. They just compete, compete, compete. And I'm really proud of both of them. Both played really well.

"But again, it just wasn't enough in terms of our teams' effort."

OAKLAND, Calif. - Oracle Arena started to empty earlier than usual.

As a surprising number of Raptors fans stuck around to celebrate their team being one win away from the franchise's first championship, the Warriors faithful left the building with the knowledge that this could have been Golden State's final game in its home of 48 years. Considering the ramifications, it was telling.

The Warriors' Game 3 loss brought about defiance. Draymond Green talked about winning three games in a row as if it was business as usual. (He said there were "fun times ahead.") The thought of losing two consecutive playoff games at Oracle was laughable. After Friday night's 105-92 loss to the Raptors, though, laughter had no chance of entering the fray.

The postgame comments came as expected. Taking it "one game at a time" was mentioned more than once. But there was a somberness that was palpable, and as the Warriors head back to Toronto down 3-1, you can't help but think this dynasty is coming to an end.

Game 4 had all the makings of a Golden State victory. At home in a soon-to-be vacant arena, key players returning, a history of overcoming 2-1 deficits - it made too much sense. But even the greatest of champions can't overcome so many obstacles.

10. Cloud Computing

Cloud computing refers to any storage or software that exists online and you don’t need to download and install in on your computer. Essentially, when you’re using your email, for example, you’re using software and storage space that exists only on the Internet, also called “the cloud”, and not actually downloading each email to your computer or smartphone.

You can access the cloud storage through your browser or via an app. But your email isn’t the only instance of cloud computing. Many services, such as iCloud by Apple or Google Drive, you guessed it, by Google let you store your files, photos, and other media on virtual storage space and use online software to share or change these files.

Cloud computing is very convenient, as it allows you to access your data from multiple devices at the same time without sending it to that specific device. Apart from that, cloud computing lets multiple people from different corners of the Earth work on the same project simultaneously, which definitely enables collaboration on a whole new level.

9. Authentication and Encryption

When you’re entering your email or login name and password to access your account on a site, you’re going through a process called authentication. Some sites and apps also offer fingerprint scanners and face authentication. This process is made easy for the users, you, that is, but behind the scenes, it’s a complex process that is aimed to protect your data and personal information.

This protection system is called encryption, and what it does is scrambles your data following complex mathematical patterns so that it’s protected from eavesdroppers. Businesses and social media sites alike use encryption, and it makes sure your personal information and banking information is kept private and safe.

8. Spam Emails and Email Filters

abda7d2b-faa4-4526-b3e8-d1f33336bd80 - Show Posts - balong

Spam is a term that means unwanted emails, basically trash. Spam is annoying and often dangerous, and there are 2 main types of spam emails:1. Advertising.2. Emails sent out by hackers aiming to steal your passwords and personal data.

Most email services today have a filtering system that, for lack of another word, filters out any important emails you’re getting from spam and puts all of these potentially useless emails into a folder titled something like ‘spam’, ‘trash’, etc.

The main problem with this filter system is that it’s imperfect, and some important emails may sometimes end up in the spam folder, and, what’s more dangerous, emails from hackers may appear in your incoming emails instead of the spam folder.

That’s why it’s always important to be wary of the emails you receive, even if they arrive from your bank or a person you know. For example, your bank or government officials should never ask for your bank details or social security number via email. If an email looks suspicious, don’t click on any links it contains: this may endanger your personal information or passwords.
