GSW dont have the physical presence to match up with the Rockets.
Defense wins Chips. The Warriors have none. Theyre game plan is to out score teams. In Finals that usually doesnt happen because you run into a team that can actually play defense.
So far GSW MVP and his side kick "Spash Bros" have had easy back court match ups in a Courtney Lee and the couldnt breath regularly, face injured Mike Conley. The Grizz dont even play a SG. Lee is a SF who didnt have half the foot speed to match up with Klay Thompson. And The Pelicans? lol they had to play 3 SGs they matched up so bad.Eric Gordon, Tyreke Evans and Quincy Pondexter. PG Norris Cole was the 6th man. 4 guards to defend 2. Thats a nightmare.
But the Rockets dont have the match up problems. Now the Warriors will have to grind out wins. Something they havnt had to do all season.
The Rockets have 4 quality guards in Harden, Beverley, Terry and Prigioni.
They match up well in the back court.
And we all know the GSW front court has been outplayed in every game these playoffs. But Anthony Davis, Gasol and Randolf didnt have the back court support to cover Splash Bros.
Dwight Howard and Josh Smith do and as a result they will completely control the paint against Andrew Bogut and a combo of Draymond Green/David Lee.
For their first time in the Playoffs the Warriors have match up problems now. Kerr will recognize this and play small ball. If a unsung hero like Barnes, Iggy or Barbosa hit a high % of 3s they survive. But I dont believe that will happen.
Rockets in 5
Holy [expletive] did I have a good chuckle on the bolded parts especially.
Honestly man, it stuns me to see you praise an underwhelming team like the Hawks who had trouble putting away a lottery team in Brooklyn in the first round, and then proceed to [expletive] all over a team that has proven to be the best team in the NBA all season.
A lot of what you just wrote proves you haven't watched GS at all. No defense? They're one of the best defensive teams in the league!
Physical presence? The Rockets led the league in 3 point shooting! You're really just pulling all these statements out of your ass.
Oh, and the Rockets have the backourt to cover Steph and Klay? Like who? Because the only perimeter player worth a damn on defense is Ariza so whoever is being guarded by Harden/Terry/Brewer/Prigs is going to go off.
The Rockets have 4 quality guards? Lol ok. But the combo of Steph/ Klay/ Livingston/ Barbosa bests HOU's 4-guards easily. HOU does not match up well with GS's backcourt what so ever.
This post just straight up reeks of unwarranted hate, especially given your praise of the Hawks, acting as if they're going to just cakewalk right through LeBron. The Hawks will be lucky to win 2 games, just like HOU.
