2017 Conference Finals: 1 GS vs. 2 SA

Postby Lamrock on Fri May 12, 2017 6:32 pm

Spurs annihilated the Rockets to earn the NBA's coveted bronze medal...

This series would have felt like a formality even if the Spurs hadn't lost Parker, and had Kawhi get banged up. Now they get to play a super team that's had almost a week of rest...

I'll say Warriors in 5. Hard not to call for a sweep, but I think Mike Brown blows one of the games in San Antonio.

Sadly, Warriors in 5, with a sweep not being out of the question.

Didn't watch last night's game but they annihilated the rockets without Parker and kawhi. Sure, the rockets aren't the warriors but that must mean something right?

Plus the spurs have an advantage inside especially if aldridge plays like the star he thinks he is. And no bogut inside. His will be a good test to see if the gamble of giving up interior defense for more offense and a video game lineup paid off

The Spurs matched up well against the Warriors this season. But unless one of the Big 4 gets seriously injured... there's no doubt the Warriors are the clear favourite. However, I would not be surprised if the series isn't as close as I think it will be, we could even see a sweep. They've been on a roll lately but I guess we'll find out. I'll be rooting for the Spurs of course.

Warriors made the usual third quarter run, after Leonard went out with an ankle injury...with more than a little help from Zaza, who moved in and didn't give him space to land. Dirty play.

God dammit. I left home with a huge smile on my face and a 20+ point lead for SA. Came back to a 2 point lead and Claw being injured.

Poor execution by GS in the last minute. Really left the door open. God I hope Leonard can play at least 90% next game.

For me the dirty play and some of the bad calls (and non-calls) tainted it a little, but that does go to show that I was invested, so can't entirely disagree there. I have a feeling Leonard's injury is going to be glossed over in favour of praising the Warriors' resilience, and to be fair, they made the shots and didn't give up. That play was a gamechanger, though.

The only 2 times they've played a healthy team where when the Pelicans took them 7 games a few years ago, and last year's finals.

I thought Evans was injured in 2015?

And it was a sweep also.

Perhaps Joel Anthony can be the hero they need and deserve, as far as getting a little physical payback.

Meanwhile, Kawhi is downplaying the incident, Zaza called the accusations stupid, and Coach Pop...well, he called it totally unnatural.

Popovich criticized the defense of Pachulia, calling it "a totally unnatural closeout," per Wright.

"This is crap," the coach added, per Wright. "Who gives a damn about his intent? Ever heard of manslaughter?"


phpBB [video]


And then of course, the counterargument is that people are just biased haters out to criticise the Warriors for anything. What a hack. Because, you know, the Spurs didn't get called out on this stuff back in the day when Bruce Bowen was doing highly questionable things. I guess everyone back then was just a "hater", too.

Draymond Green has defended Zaza Pachulia, insisting that he isn't dirty. And as we all know, we can all trust Draymond on that one.

Even Bruce Bowen has come out and called it a dirty play. When the guy who made a career of impersonating Liu Kang and targeting ankles calls something dirty, it's probably dirty.

David Lee also out though it would little matter or mattered.

No-Kawhi is too big it seems.

Is this team better prepared for the Cavs than last year and overall better team? Last year's GSW won 73 games but they now have KD.

The addition of KD has certainly given them more firepower, more than most defenses can be expected to counteract and contain.

i dont think it gets mentioned here- the defense he brings has been excellent. i would say the death lineup defense with him there at the 4 is better than last years

Now the big What If for the series will be if Kahwi doesn't get hurt and they don't blow that huge lead. Do the warriors wind up losing the series?

Would it be fair to call him an underrated defender? With his length, I remember him bothering Kobe in some of their clashes some years back.

It's not a given, but I imagine it would be more competitive at the very least.

no way. its a much better series but the warriors just have too much and getting beat in game 1 would have actually helped them as they have not been pushed at all until that point. as much as having pop helps in the end the warriors just have too much talent

Almost cliche to say but "playoff" KD is normally great on defense. I'll let the masses decide if he's underrated or not. Maybe it falls under the radar because of the GSW offense but GSW overall is a pretty darn good defensive team

I suppose the flashiness and glamour of offense always overshadows defense. With a player like KD, you tend to focus on the scoring outbursts.

A lot of us were thinking this could be the best series of this year's playoffs. Turns out to be the worst. :shake:

Might've been a little better, if not for Zaza.

Man, what a waste of a series. That first game was so satisfying till Kawhi went down the second time.

That Spurs front line of Gasol/Aldridge is painful to watch after years of witnessing the greatness that is Tim Duncan. He should've just laced it up for a game.
