Zero since 2008.

Warriors in 5. Our league.
:thumbup:

5 is doubtful. The C’s are too good. But guarantees are dumb. IMHO, it’s in the “GS in 6 to Boston in 7” range.

17 championships trumps all.

They said that about the Mavericks series too, while I correctly called Warriors in 5.

Interesting to note in this championship series. Both coaches played and tutored under Pops, if I'm not wrong. Nice job Pops, your're definitely a legend with class.
Correct. Kerr played under Pops and Uduka both play for and coached under Kerr

Also, Kerr is kind of the reverse Danny Ainge. Danny was a mediocre coach that became an excellent executive. Kerr was a mediocre executive that became a great coach

Ainge was the better basketball player, though. Just for the record. Kerr was a one trick pony.

Going with the Warriors to get another trophy.

Edge in experience: player wise and coaching.

Good luck to whoever you root for.

Warriors achilles heel, turnovers, rearing its ugly head.

Poole is not having a good game. Different stage. Hope he snaps out of it and concentrate, focus on what he goes best.

You're not going to beat a team that does that. They were hottttttt
in the 4th, nothing GS could do. When you're on like that, it's usually
lights off for the opponent.

Its tough to have two non-shooters (Looney and Green) on the court. Looney has no verticality and watching him pass out of the paint is painful to watch sometimes.

They made alot of contested shots though, so thats not quite sustainable. However Tatum and Brown arent going to be a combined 13-40 very often either.

Getting the road win and steal HFA is big. However we have been below. 500 at home that last two series (which is crazy). Still a whole lot of series left

They were contributing quite nicely offensive wise being who they are and what they can do in previous 2 series.

Both missed easy at the basket opportunities, those can really be game and momentum swings.

Imo, Poole got a rude welcoming to Finals play, he's good but doesn't have the right DNA yet. The Warriors definitely need his production. I know he'll learn, just have to be patient and not force his stuff.

Dang the Celtics shot the heck out and burned the nets in the 4th!

Yeah several players, both sides, got the hibbie gibbies playing the finals, their initiation to the big stage.

Agreed, lot more games to be played. One at a time.
