It has been an epic journey.

Some Warrior fans have been waiting quite a while to see the team finish the season as the best in the NBA.

Image

But no time to reflect, as the real battle begins.......

Here we are, the best record in the league, and everybody is happy about it.

Steph has become the GOAT Warrior along the way.

We now face the 1st test on our road to glory.

Image

Our big Aussie's defense will need to be rock solid against this beast of a human being.

Our defensive switches and help defense will need to be sharp.

Green will bring the required tenacity.

Kiwi Fruit.

In Kerr we trust.

Every Warrior fan should resemble this before tip off.

I'm so fricken pumped for this game.

I may miss the final quarter as I might have to shoot off to work, so they better blow them away in the 1st 3 quarters!

I'd recommend Buffalo Wild Wings or Stuft Pizza (Milpitas).

Hell yeah... by comparison I look young and juicy. Thought I was the old tier GSW fan.. but that dude has me beat. He was probably old when Nate Thurmond was the GSW star. While I can remember the glory days of the 70's... I'd not GSW wasn't "leading the pack" even in 75...they were underdogs vs the Bullets.

Davis is SO good he probably can get the Pelicans a win in New Orleans... but unless they cloned Pete Maravich.. they can not overcome GSW's rare dominance at the Oracle. The biggest home edge in the NBA becomes more so in the playoffs. Several fans probably self combust. At some point the W's rain a bunch of 3's and grab the momentum. Spoiler alert...GSW is almost a lock to win today... but if they LOSE... it's a VERY bad sign. It's important for the whole enchilada to NOT be Curry/Klay on the arc. Good game for Barnes, Iggy,Speights...even Lee...to add punch and depth to the attack.
CENSORED... No comment.

First game playoff rules
1. It's HUGE to win Game 1.
2. Read rule #1.

Somehow I know that GQ style of Anthony Davis isn't gonna last.

I like Bogut in this game!

Anyone think Festus could be a good defender for Davis? Green too small, Bogut not quick enough.. Festus is long, strong and quick.

Actually, I think Dray may be our best bet on Brow. He'll find clever ways to defend him because Dray is so smart. If he can keep him outside, I think that will be half the battle and I doubt he's going to be giving Davis open looks from the outside which it sees so many teams do. He'll close out and get in his face before he can pull the trigger which will disrupt his shot and then get lost on offense. If Draymond's 3 is on, the Pels will be in trouble.

He should get a lot of open looks today, whether it's Davis or Asik guarding him. I think a key for us today will be the guy who everyone loves to hate, HB & Iggy. We need to dominate @ SF against Pondexter, that's I think the Pels weakest link. Coxy, once again, you've outdone yourself. :thumbsup:

Thanks. Might try that. Could pop up to Palo Alto and go to Old Pro as well.

I already proposed Ezeli guarding AD for some time. It may not work for extended minutes because he's not the smartest defender yet but I'm sure he could bother AD a bit. As you hinted above, Ezeli's body constitution is actually ideal in theory - Bogut and Green, however, have the edge in how to play defense although Ezeli made visible progress in this regard this season.

I'd start with Green on him and only occasional double-teams in certain situations and make changes during the game if necessary.
