Huge lead again.
Can they keep it this time?
I seriously think if they could close out games better they would be a legit threat to win the west. They are so explosive.
What do you guys think? See the Spurs making another comeback?
There's your answer.
blowing it again
yes they're going to hold on
Good for them, kept composure and got key buckets down the stretch. Always important to win one on the road, although it would have been nice to win both, that win is big for their confidence.
imagine a golden state v Memphis conference finals
The Spurs are in some serious trouble. They won the fisrt game after Thompson fouled out. This was home court for the Spurs an they're very lucky not to be down 0-2 heading back to G.S.
Looks like the Denver series really showed GS how to presevere. Its Amazing that 3 of their 8 man rotation are Rookies including two 2nd rounders.
Ezeli was the 30th pick last year, so technically a first rounder.
Glad Golden State got the win, I'm still sticking with my prediction of GSW in 6. This series is looking similar to the Denver series; tough loss on buzzer-beater in first game, solid win in second game on the road.
Let's see if they can defend their home court now.
Warriors nation rejoice. Being a Warriors lifer I've learned not to get ahead of myself, but what is their regular season record vs the Heats?....just askin....
The season series was 1-1 with each team winning on the road.
Early in the season the Warriors gave the Heat their second loss at home. Golden State won on a Draymond Green layup with under a second to go. There was miscommunication between Ray Allen and Shane Battier and he was left wide open. LeBron put in 31 but only had 3 rebounds 5 assists with 4 turnovers in this game. David Lee had a big double double with 22 and 14. Jack was huge off the bench with 20 points. Klay Thompson led them in scoring with 27 but he shot 5-14 from downtown that game.
In the 2nd game in Oracle arena Steph Curry did not play and the Warriors were held to a season low 75 points. LeBron James dominated with 25 points 10 assists 7 rebounds and only 1 turnover in 31 minutes played. Klay Thompson scored just two points on 1-8 shooting with Curry out the lineup.
The Warriors aren't the same team they were back in January when these teams last played. They have grown up a lot and players like Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes are really coming into their own. They defend much better as a team which is what you need to stop LeBron. I would imagine Klay Thompson will draw that matchup most of the game. I would look for LeBron to post him up quite a bit. We all know LeBron James is the reason the Heat are huge favorites to win the title. If you can stop him you can slow down Miami. The problem is almost nobody has been able to stop him this year and I don't see how the Warriors would be able to. HEAT in 5 games
