Key matchups:

1) Curry/Klay vs. Lillard/CJ

2) KD vs. Aminu

3) Blazers bench vs. Non-existent Warriors bench

Assuming the first matchup is about even, it will come down to the point differential between matchups 2 and 3.

Also, no KD for the first two games. Blazers can steal potentially one or both of those games, and I wouldn't be surprised.

Why wouldn't they just shoot up Curry's finger with Novocaine before the game? The pain is in such a small area it just seems like a simple solution.

Nurkic is injured, Kanter would play Center whole game. He will match with Curry after picks and roll plays. I think he has no chance against Curry, he will destroh him. However, Curry would match with Lillard or CJ, so he could face foul trouble easiliy.

I hear KD is not coming back until maybe after game 2. Bruce Bowen thinks they don't need him to beat the Blazers. He also said it might make things worse to bring him back when he's not 100%.

I just hope Rodney Hood can play this series. He's been a big help off the bench.

Rarely does a Disney movie play out in real life, but I'll still root for Portland. McCollum has gained a ton of respect for me with the both way he plays and just how good he is.

It all starts with defense. Portland's backcourt got bottled up by Rondo and Holiday a year ago, which lead to a sweep. Contain them and the rest will take care of itself.

Gotterdammerung
05-14-2019, 05:28 PM
The Blazers can win if:

They add defensive stops to their dynamic backcourt
Someone else other than Lillard or McCollum or Kanter steps up.
Their superior depth (eight to ten deep) becomes a factor.

The GSW will win because:

They have the edge in talent and focus.
They're on the verge of making history with a fourth title in five years. Only the Russell Celtics pulled that off (eight titles in a row, 11 out of 13).
Without Durant their offense will resume a more motion based one that produces egalitarian results. And with enough opportunities, Curry can go off at any time.
Even if their best player Kevin Durant doesn't play much, or is hobbled when he comes back, the GSW still have the home court edge.

The Blazers must steal one of the first two and then unleash Dame Time in Portland to seize control of the series in six. Otherwise?
Golden State in 7

Chef Dingo carrying the team on his sack
Carrying is nice, but I prefer teamwork when everyone is eating right. Other guys need to start taking and making shots for them to close this one out. Blazers have no business still being in this.

Would be nice to see the defense completely shut them down in the 4th.

How ****ing stupid is it that the Warriors also have Durant on the team?

Seriously...watching this game...take a step back and realize that this team also has one of the best players of all time in his prime / peak.

It is absolutely absurd.

They are about to be something like 30-1 without KD and with Steph. Hopefully not, hopefully the Blazers come back and win...but, ugh...I don't think many realize just how big of a joke the last 3 years really have been.

You're still in the minority.

Even if the Warriors sweep this series and win the title and Durant sits out, most people are still going to think he was their best player. lol.

Two best things is Curry getting off and the defense. They need to trap Steph harder and much more, or he's going to average 35-40 in the series however. You simply can't treat him like you would every other player in the NBA. The defense was amazing tonight. If they can keep this defense and intensity up all PS, they can be champions again. Loved what they did to Dame, hope they can keep doing it efficiently. Same with Kanter on the other end. Blazers were likely very tired from the game 7 match, but I also don't think they are used to this kind of defense. Would be huge if the Warriors can keep them in the 90s for 2/3 next games.

I still think the Houston Rockets are the second best team in the league, but we will see if that turns out true in the next 3 1/2 weeks.

Defense is like a chain link; it's only as strong as the weakest link. The Warriors did addition by subtraction in that regard with the recent injury. It was always their strength (#1 in Defensive Rating) before KD's arrival and they were middle of the pack this year as it was de-emphasized. It was like a walk down memory lane watching today's game. Portland held to 36% FG.

As much as I’ve detested the Warriors, tonight reminded me how likable they were pre-Durant: organically developed champions and well-oiled ball-movers, saliently led by the most revolutionary player of our generation in Curry. It’s a success-story archetype that wooed over even many neutrals, such as myself, which was all bastardized by Durant’s addition.

I just wish there were a better-matched WCF opponent here for suspense’s sake. This Blazers roster is virtually just a matured version of the team that got trounced by the Warriors Durant-lessly in 2016–and even Curry-lessly for half of the series—and 2017: they might give more competitive spurts here and there, but they’re still insuperably outmatched as they were years prior.

Looks like this year’s Finals might actually feature the league’s best-two teams for the first time since how many years ago?

You can't just blame it on KD though. He's a pretty poor off the ball defender (elite on ball), but the team is playing more focused now because the margin of error has finally widened. They were taking it easy during the playoffs this year, while now they are all playing with intensity. If KD comes back and they play with that same intensity, they will still be an incredible defensively-rated team.

I think the defense has more to do with the team finally on their toes than just KD not being in the lineup as weak link as you say. KD isn't some scrub defensively.

Exactly. Use dribble penetration to attract two, know exactly where everyone is on the court, move the ball to make teams pay for doubling your best players. Pass to give up the good shot to get the best shot. Either that, or off-the-ball movement.... constantly.

The Warriors offensive mentality was- if you don't have the ball, do not stand still. Do something. Set a screen. Move; create an option for the ball-handler. It expends a lot of energy but it's being invested in team offense - it's what the Warriors used for years to be so dominant. It's super-effective and it's a beautiful thing to see them get back to it.

I expected two wins in the first two games, one a blow out (game 1) and another a bit closer. I expect a better game from the back court in game 2, but Warriors should shut shop for one of them, be CJ or Dame. Don't care which one as long both don't go off. Expected the Blazers to shoot the 3 much better because they can't shoot it any worse :lol, and I'm not sure if they will concede 20 TOs two games in a row (still think this will happen once more at their place). Also Steph isn't getting that open again. They will likely start trapping hard in the 1st, so he has to be careful and not get bad TOs when Dray gets the ball on the P&R. So whether he gets 36 again, it shouldn't be that easy.

Saying that, team can't let the Blazers get 16 offensive rebounds. Pathetic that this happened at home as well. This should never in the double figures, Loon Toons, Bogs and Dray need to box out properly. Also expecting Klay to shoot better because he shot like shit in game 1. If it's not coming, maybe not force it as much. Maybe there won't be some garbage like the 23 and 3 FTs disparity at home this time around like it was in the first 3 quarters. I saw the refs giving the FTs in garbage time, but those ***** were keeping them in it. Would be nice to see Klay try to get a few FTs and others drive and get some contact.

McCollum vs. Klay- incredible demo of D vs. O. Klay, one of the best guard defenders in the league, not falling for almost any move, the fakes, feints, etc.- staying down McCollum still able to score on some tough shots.

Kanter defense is trash. Cj missed a wide open three. Those are shots warriors make. Those bury you when you

Kanter perhaps light-headed from fasting and not drinking water- falls for the fake and gives up 3 FT.

In the heart of the game, when there's some unknown offensive foul committed by Blazers, rather than explaining it, Van Gundy is blabbing on about some completely unrelated story rather than commenting on the game in the heart of the action. Goes on for a few plays. Clueless.

Trapping curry and klay is making a huge difference. They played dame and cj this way

Warriors Fan but Blazers have made excellent adjustments since Game 1. Much tighter perimteter defense. Trapping screens often to guard the perimeter. Active hands in passing lanes, preventing the kind of unimpeded Motion offense run by GSW in game 1. Curry's defender, usually Lillard, being much more physical (hand-checking should probably be a foul but they get away with it, so why not). Offensively, executing well- 47% 3 Pt fg while warriors are at 25%.

Talking about that offense foul right after warriors got called for away from
Ball foul?

Yeah that was bullshit. Classic refs making a make up call

impressed portland. Lillard finally caught on at the end of the half. It is a bad sign that GS defense hasnt been very good in the playoffs even with Durant. Regular season is one thing because that can be an effort thing but you should be giving full effort in the playoffs

Night and day. I knew blazers could play smart defense. Gotta keep this up.

Dame dropped who at the end? Lol

Dubs winning this series in five, I've seen enough. Blazers will avoid a sweep by winning Game 4.

Which would men the Clippers took the Warriors as far as the Rockets did and further than the Blazers, despite facing a fully healthy Durant.

Warriors are not playing like they mean it.

Steph set the tone early on, playing soft; seeing Lillards' physical defense, he gave up the ball to someone else. Don't do that. Either go against it and draw the foul. Or Warriors should be aggressively screening. Knowing that Port's adjustment was to bring along the big man at the perimeter; Warriors should be ready to pass to their slipping big man. But they havent. In essence, they have not adjusted to Port's adjustments.

GSW crushed on boards. They NEED to gang rebound. They are outsized. Which means Igoudala, Klay need to crash the boards too- just like they did Game 1.

Klay needs to be coming off curls, NOT creating his own shot which he is not good at. Kerr- wake up, this is the postseason, these are basic things the team should already be doing. Klay shoots highest FG% off a curl so why isn't he.

Just a lazy, lethargic offense. Warriors need to be getting a little more physical; refs are letting it. Push off to get free. Set hard back screens to free up players. Fast cuts to get open, sharp passes. Instead, everything is delayed. Send screeners regularly for Curry. Just mindless Kerr hasn't thought of this. Whenever the Warriors face intense D like they did against Rockets last year, or against Cleveland - Kerr goes to sleep rather than instructing Warriors bigs to free up Curry so he can run the offense like usual. There are times when I think he is just as much of a bystander as the rest of us.

On D, Blazers seem to be getting open looks. I haven't deconstructed exactly how that's happening - but obviously Blazers big improvement from 30-something% last game to 50% this one.

Not saying the even win this game but the Blazers defense has clearly frustrated the Warriors.

Klay: 3 for 12. After klay plays hard on D like he did on lillard, don't go right to him on O right afterward. Give him a play in between to get his legs back. Or set him up for set shot.

Warriors are horrible without Durant.

This isnt a good Blazers team yet Dubs cant win without KD.

Big difference in Game 2- GSW lacks a reiiable 2nd scorer. Klay is at 25%. Igoudala has missed all of his shots. (Dray doesn't count; scores opportunistically, last resort)
