I never know which Warriors team will show up. If they come in totally focused and ready to roll it could be a big lead, but then they get lazy and throw most of the lead away.

This year the Warriors offense has come so easy they have been to cavalier about playing it right. The Heat beat the crap out of them in their last game and they had by far their worst offensive game and only won by 17.

Wolves with Butler are a very tough matchup for them regardless, and with no KD, yes, likely the Wolves cover if they bring it full bore.

Yup Yup... I hate the celtics but I thought Brown was the biggest bust in the world before he was drafted... I wanted dunn over him so much. He made such a massive jump its insane... His defense is sick.. His ball handling is on point and offensively right now he has no real weaknesses... Its crazy.

I haven't capped the game at all and don't even know the spread - just getting back from a movie with the lady. Length+athleticism is an issue for the Warriors though - especially with no KD - and don't underestimate the effort teams bring when playing the Warriors. Every random game for GS is a major game for the competition.

I think without Horford and Tatum it has shown that the Celtics need a true shooter of the bench. We don’t really have anyone who can consistently hit 3s on the second team.... the team needs a backup ice man after Kyrie is off the court lol

Lakers are actually decent team. Lonzo is probably about 2-3 years from really reaching his potential. He's too raw now, and his shot is horrible, but I see flashes during games of the type of player he could become. He's surprisingly solid defensively.

Everyone expects big things, and with JB they have clearly been better, but this is the year for them to shine. They were already an expected playoff team last year, and failed. Now they're expected to fight for HCA.

Minny's defense is doing about as good as anyone can hope. If you can hold GS to 51 points a half you gotta be happy, even without KD. But they should have like 58 points right now. Not enough movement on offense for them.

I'd be annoyed if I bet Warriors 1H in that game. Long/careless passes from Curry and Co. are the difference between a tight game and a 12+ lead going into half. For a team that needs as much rest as they can get, they need to stop toying with these dudes. This is how you lose games you should close at halftime.

Since the Warriors "woke up" and started playing defense and cut back on throwing the ball all over the place they have scored 602 points in the last 5 games to 494 for their opponents. A 21.6 differential.

The Warriors next 10 games includes games against the Sixers, Celtics, Magic, Thunder, Pelicans, Lakers, Kings, Nets, and Bulls. They are probably going to be favored in all of the games, but if they go 10-0 in that run then I'll believe the Warriors are back to what they should be.

These next four games will be interesting, as they'll be facing three Eastern Conference teams playing really well right now that they haven't exactly played against before (at least not these versions of these teams). And I think Orlando, Boston and Philly all do some things that will give Golden State problems. Something tells me they go 3-1 in that stretch and one of those squads pulls an upset.

Pft. Are you kidding me? I balled like a little girl. It was the first title in a major sport in the city since I was 8 years old. It was like Christmas morning times 1,000.

But then the season is over, and after a month of high-stakes playoff baseball every night, I didn't have anything to satiate my hunger (especially since Deshaun Watson tore his ACL literally the day after the World Series win). So I'm itching for a big-time Houston sporting event already. I'm totally addicted now...
