I really do not see it being that simple. Lawson was crap in game 1 and Miller had to pick up the slack. Iggy was just as bad.
In game 2, much better offensive game for the Nuggets but terrible, terrible defense. At times the Dubs would simply throw it in the paint and it is an easy dunk or lay-up for whoever is there. It was worse than the Lebron lay-up drill against the Bucks. Partly to blame is playing Faried as well, dude is less than 100% and looks like he is hurting just to move out there.
The only consistent player in the Dubs is Curry and Thompson, Barnes just isn't going to score like that all the time and Jack is more consistent but I am not sure he can sustain averaging 20 a game. They lost an All Star that averages double double for the season, I just do not see them moving past the Nuggets based on those two games alone.
