GAME 1/2 IN ORCALE: WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS

THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS DEFENDED HOME COURT AS THEY TAKE A 2-0 LEAD IN THIS BEST OF 7 SERIES AGAINST PORTLAND.

GAME 1: I GUESS PORTLAND HAD A GAME-PLAN WHERE THE CENTER WOULD GO UNDERNEATH CURRY’S PICK N ROLL. BAD PLAN BECAUSE WITH THAT STRATEGY PORTLAND GOT TORCHED BY STEPHEN CURRY! PORTLAND CAME OUT LETHARGIC AND THATS WHY THEY GOT BLOWN-OUT.

94 TRAILBLAZERS

116 WARRIORS

GAME 2: PORTLAND CHANGED THEIR STRATEGY WHEN IT CAME TO DEFENDING CURRY. WHEN HE WOULD COME OFF PICK N ROLL’S THEY TRAP EARLY AND THAT CAUSED HIM TO HAVE A LOT MORE TURNOVERS. THE SECOND HALF HE WOULD GET TRAPPED AND RUN AROUND TO FREE HIMSELF OPEN FOR A SHOT. GOLDEN STATE WAS DOWN THROUGHOUT THE GAME UNTIL THEY MADE THEIR INCREDIBLE 3QT RUN. CURRY WAS GREAT DOWN THE STRETCH AS THEY CAME BACK TO SECURE VICTORY!

111 TRAILBLAZERS

114 WARRIORS

AMINU IS THEIR STARTING FORWARD AND HES NOT GIVING DOUBLE DIGITS IN POINTS. I KNOW HE IS THERE FOR DEFENSE BUT PORTLAND NEEDS ONE OF THEIR WING PLAYERS BESIDES THEIR GAURDS (DAME AND CJ) TO BE PRODUCTIVE ON THE OFFENSE SIDE OF THE BALL IN THIS SERIES! PUTTING ALL THE SCORING ONIS ON THEM HAS BEEN DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO OVERCOME!

SETH CURRY HAS HAD VERY LITTLE IMPACT IN THIS SERIES! BUT AT TIMES LAST NIGHT GUARDING HIS BROTHER YOH CAN TELL HE CLEARLY KNOWS HOW TO DEFEND HIS BROTHERS GAME. ITS JUST A MATTER OF STOPPING IT. NEVERTHELESS HE GOT A STEAL OFF OF HIM.

FINAL PLAY OF THE GAME :

DO YOU THINK PORTLAND CAN WIN THE NEXT GAME AT HOME?

IF THEY DON’T THEN THE SERIES WOULD BE OFFICIALLY OVER. BECAUSE I HAVE A HARD TO TIME SEEING TO THE WARRIORS LOSE 4 GAMES OUT OF 5.

MY OPINION:

IF PORTLAND CAN NOT WIN GAME 3 AT HOME TO ME THEIR SEASON IS OVER. BY THE WAY THIS IS WITHOUT KEVIN DURANT AND DEMARCUS COUSINS.
