Up until Monday's loss to the Jazz, the boys at Stephen Jackson's Gun Rack had found a strange fullproof stat for the Warriors in these NBA playoffs. The City had been 4-0 when S-Jax hadn't gotten ejected, and is currently 0-2 when he's gotten ejected - even though the two loses probably would have happened anyway.
But let's dig deeper into the stats. The more important stat here for the Warriors is that The City's record coming off an S-Jax ejection in these playoffs is currently 2-0, and they have totally blown out the opposition in those games with Jackson being a heavy contributor.
So this begs the question, should S-Jax have gotten ejected on Monday for the sake of The City? I would say yes. Nelson should have had one of the Warriors commit a foul in the final seconds, just to stop the clock and let S-Jax get his crazy on. As much as I would have liked to have seen him wail on some Mormon kid, that would be counterproductive, since he'd quickly get suspended. I would suggest punting the basketball into the upper deck a couple of times.
This achieves two things. First, he'd pick up two technicals to get himself ejected, but neither T would be bad enough to warrant a suspension. Second, it would have set the Warriors up for an automatic blowout victory in Game 2.
Keep that in mind S-Jax, we might need you to get ejected at some point in this series. I'm sure you can handle that.
