I'm expecting 2-3. Something's gotta go wrong, right?

There are only 2 types of games: test games and trap games

I always brace myself with lowered expectations, that way when they win more than I expect, I am happy.
The potential here to lose at least 2 games is very possible. So they have to stay up and win games they are expected to.
The Clips will try to ice Steph too, important that they are not looking past that game at Phoenix. The Suns scare me right now, mostly with their record. If the Dubs are sharp and focused I have no doubt they can and will beat them, but successfully ice Steph and catch the others off or nervous and they can easily beat the Dubs. That's a big if... you can't completely ice Curry and you only get one night of that because the next time he's going to go off. 3-2 is a reasonable expectation. Anything better is gravy, and exceeding expectations.. which they've done all season so far.

Yeah, I'm gonna say 3-2 realistically, buy I'm kinda like @Money__ just keeping expectations lowered. Obviously 5-0 is not impossible for this team when they're rolling but neither is 2-3. Splitting the Phoenix games seems likely. Also don't forget the game after the second Phoenix game (the "sixth" game) is the Spurs at home, but we're on a back to back so that seems like a potential trap game if we go all out trying to win vs. Phoenix.

Hoping Steph gets a 50 piece in one of these games just for the hell of it.

Also would be funny if we go 4-1 and our 1 loss is against the 76ers. Actually not funny, but GSW sometimes plays down to their opponents and play more deadly against the tougher teams.
