A slowed down Steph
Both of these allow you to keep the game close
Don't get injured
Honestly if Andre igudola was healthy they would probably win the series in 5 or 6. They dominated game 3 and blew a lead in the game he didn’t play
MF got 6 all stars, no...
It was their rim protection in my opinion, and probably still is with Boogie’s minutes restriction. Before Boogie the warriors were getting ate up inside, even with Dray being Dray he can’t do everything and in the last Jazz game Gobert was feasting.
In the sixers game when boogie was out they put looney on embiid and even though looney was doing great offensively he could not neutralize Embiid.
Honorable mention to Steph’s inability to draw shooting fouls because sometimes that’s a game you need especially if the other team is a good amount, but KD is quite good at it so it hasn’t been much of an issue.
You gotta outshoot them...literally pull out a pistol and shoot them nikkas in the kneecap
cleveland already showed you how to beat the warriors:
1. punk the back court
2.piss draymond/boogie off
3.hit all shots, not just 3pters
4.beat them on the glass
5. great ball handling skills
Lack of motivation, they got away with it yesterday but being down by almost 20 to Miami is embarrassing.
Man just imagine if PG went 2 philly as a FA and they still pulled off the same trades.
Embeed - Cousins
PG - Durant
Harris - Green
Jimmy - Klay
Simmons - Steph
Steph and his ineffectiveness when he's faced with a long, agile defender--that Rockets series really highlighted just how limited he is offensively. I can't see the Rockets doing that again with Ariza, Mbah a Moute + Tucker trio no longer being around.
But OKC (PG, Grant, Roberson, Ferguson), 76ers (Ben Simmons, Butler, Jonathan Simmons, Ennis), Celtics (Smart, Brown, Hayward, Tatum), Raptors (Siakam, Kawhi, Green, OG Anunoby, Powell) all have multiple defenders that you can throw at Steph and KD.
Even when you run the KD-Steph pick-and-pop and get KD switched onto the smaller guard down low (that's if teams don't just assign a taller defender on Steph in the postseason), you can just do what Houston did which was have Draymond (and Looney's) defender roam around and throw a hard double KD's way.
One injury to either kd or steph and they are done. Bench is weak, boogie can be thrown off his game by either the refs or if you take advantage of his mental weakness. Draymond has been trash on offense this season.
Make boogie a liability defensively and mentally.
Hope draymond's legs are shot and his shooting woes last throughout the playoffs
Which leads to kd hero ball, steph playing half ass outta spite, and klay staying cold due to lack of rhythm.
Shut everybody else down and play out of your mind ball for 6-7 games with NO impact injuries
Turn the ball over too much
Steph passes like he's playing a harlem globetrotters game sometimes
Outside of slopping laxatives into their food 4 straight days in the playoffs theres no way to beat them
