DUUUUUUUBS. NorCal and I, keepin the faith. This series has started eerily similarly to the one against Denver. Game 1, lose to an old-man buzzer beater. Game 2, come back to win rather convincingly. Let's hope it plays out the exact same way.
Klay was on fire and I continue to be impressed by his defense. When you compare his defense to last year, it's seriously night and day. His jumper isn't always there, and he'll have a few rough nights in a row on the offensive end, but he's been very consistent on defense. I think the Dubs lost game 1 because he fouled out, which remains a problem for him. After he was gone, TP just destroyed everyone in front of him.
I am surprised they managed to pull out a win with a very off-night by Curry. Just goes to show, the team is more balanced than most people give credit for.
I still prefer OKC to win it all over the Heat but it's hard to not cheer for the Dubs when they are so young and just give you a shooting exhibition every night.
Plus like I said a page or two back, I don't think they are there yet and that they won't win but I'd be happy to be proven wrong once again.
That has been how the Spurs been playing in this series though, getting buried and then making a comeback, which is exactly what happens in Game 2, they just couldn't make it up in time. Dubs just had a better response to the Spurs comeback last night and they just can't win the series playing they way they have. Really no bias on either end, just a an analysis on the game.
i love the spurs, but so far they're kind of reminding me of last year's laker team. their window of opportunity might be closing. really like leonard and green, though, and maybe that's enough to build around.
