2018 PLAYOFFS: (2) Golden State vs. (7) San Antonio

Postby Lamrock on Thu Apr 12, 2018 1:11 pm

In a re-match of last year's conference finals, the defending championship Warriors sans their best player will take on the San Antonio Spurs, sans their best player. If it were a different team, like the Thunder or Jazz playing the Warriors, I'd be excited about this. But I really don't see the Spurs doing jack in this series. Aldridge should have a couple big scoring nights, so I'll give them a game due to that and Golden State's mediocre performance without Steph. But don't be fooled, the Warriors got this.

GS in 5.

Spurs in 5. Curry somehow returns in game 5 elimination night and gets shutdown by an also returning star, Kawhi.

Sudden Kawhi, it's gotta be him.

Going Ws in 6....like every one of my other picks I guess.

Warriors in five. The Spurs have finally slipped from "elite" back to "pretty good", and while Curry may be out, the Warriors still have plenty of firepower.

Warriors in 5, with one game of Danny Green thinking it's 2013 again, last gasp performances from Manu and Parker, and Aldridge putting up 30-10-2 on 50% shooting.

I told you so moment. Prior to the season start, I said Spurs made series of shit decisions for years and their fall happened exactly as predicted.

Warriors in easy 5.

Quinn Cook to the rescue.

Warriors in 6. I think Aldridge goes off a couple games, and allows them to steal one or two.

Lets see what the Warriors bench is made of in this series, a lot of question marks.

Kawhi not even being with the team for the playoffs is so weird. The heck is going on with him? Totally didn't expect him to punk out like that.

I never liked Aldridge as "the man". He has a tough time against taller/agile defenders and since his most lethal weapon is a jumpshot, I wouldn't really rely on him to drag you out of a 7 game series against the Warriors.

I voted for Warriors in 5. Gasol, Ginobili & Parker's corpses deserved better than this Kawhi. :shake:

I don't like when teams adjust their lineup to match the Warriors, even the Spurs... play your style.

I thought that's where the Jazz failed last year, when they took Boris Diaw out in favor of Joe Johnson (to match Durant and Green); Diaw even did a good job on LeBron in the Finals all those years ago.

As Lamrock put it, it's now time to watch the Raptors in their obligatory Game 1 loss vs. the Wizards; I feel so spoiled as an NBA fan this time of year - the fun doesn't stop. It's like Christmas day. :xmas:

It seems really out of character for Kawhi, too. If the Spurs have mishandled the situation behind the scenes, that's also really out of character for the organisation. As you said, it's a supremely strange turn of events.

He might want to lock an extension before he comes back. To be fair, I don't think it would make much of a difference if he comes back at this point this season. Would rather see a healthy Leonard next year.

I expect Warriors to win this in 4 or 5.

I think he's still injured and not fully recovered. Secretive Spurs and Kawhi don't want to get caught up in media bullshit shenanigans.

They should be just playing the media. What other explanation is there?

old man Sauru still kicking.

Kawhi still doesn't feel well even though Spurs medical staff already cleared him. Got another team of doctors on his side to help him. Doctors on Kawhi's side says he needs more rehab. Kawhi obliges because he doesn't feel good about his knees and don't want to be the next D Rose/ G Hill so he decides to get 100% first before playing again.

Right now, I'm thinking my 4-1 prediction was being generous towards the Spurs. Maybe they'll still steal one at home, but a sweep is looking quite likely at this juncture.

McGee has been impressive, he looks like a monster out there. He gets a lot of crap, but the dude can really impact a game when he is zoned in.

what a bizarre situation. and reports of leonard not in contact with his teammates plus he doesn't even go to the games and the cherry on top of Pop trolling him to the media.

at least Drose and the coach were on the same page

Maybe the media are getting played, but I do think the old adage of "where there's smoke, there's fire" applies here. He's conspicuous by his absence, and the lack of solidarity is notably uncharacteristic.

Same.

I chose 3 Spurs in daily fantasy tonight because of it. I'm expecting a huge performance out of Aldridge, hope I'm not wrong.

I'd like to see the Spurs take a couple games. In regards to Kawhi, supposedly a NBA executive stated that Kawhi has already chosen the Lakers as his next destination.

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2771435-lakers-trade-rumors-la-will-go-in-hard-for-kawhi-leonard-deal-with-spurs

The article I read was actually from Total Pro Sports, but I can't find it. But the anonymous NBA executive states:

Leonard wants to go to LA. There probably wont be public demands on that, but he has leverage. He is going to be a free agent in 2019. He's an LA guy and he can just let teams know he won't resign next year with anyone but the Lakers.



A healthy Leonard, with that young core of the Lakers would be interesting. Also, would this put the Spurs in full rebuild mode?

I'd have to imagine so. More unfamiliar territory for them, as they've been able to remain relevant (or at least competitive) for close to 30 years now, with the only major blip being the injury-riddled 1997 season...which in turn led to Tim Duncan and even more success.

I don't see Spurs tanking next season. Pretty sure Parker comes off the books so that extra cap space could be useful.
My bet is Spurs will tank only after Pop retires which I find reasonable considering he is only 138 wins (46 avg for 3 seasons) away from Don Nelson's Regular Season Wins record . Then again, Pop probably doesn't care about that record.

Hats off to the Spurs for at least avoiding the sweep. I didn't think they had it in them. Any time you can hold the Warriors to 90 points is a great effort, too.

Spurs always proving us wrong.
Just when we thought they wouldn’t make the playoffs, they do.
Spurs gonna get swept, no sir.

Got it right, though I was seriously doubting it would go to five after Game 3.

If this is it for Manu Ginobili - and we have thought that the last couple of years - he's had a hell of a career. The fact that he still seems to have something left in the tank at age 40 is very impressive; he still looks quite spry out there, and capable of playing effective minutes.
