    Whether its Milwaukee or Toronto, it should be a good long series. Of course my nerves hope for a 4-0 sweep like this series but i dont expect that at all.

    What GS does now is very reminiscent of how the Shaq/Kobe Lakers won. And no Iím not trying to compare anything, but it was the same formula for winning to me. Just grind out tough wins on the road by hanging around and winning with experience in those situations. There were a lot of playoff games over that 3-peat run where the Lakers just played awfully for a stretch, and somehow hung around to pull it out. And it usually came around to playing good D down the stretch like GS does. Itís very hard to knockout teams who just have that will.

    That's why the clichť "offense wins games, but defense wins championships" is so true. Offense, for even the most talented teams, comes and goes. Defense is about effort, and while you can't always play well, you can always play hard.

    I can just sense teams get as frustrated playing against Golden State as they did against the Lakers back then.

    Yep. With elite teams it always starts with being able to turn on shutdown D when they really need it. Everything in the 4th quarter and OT for Portland was really difficult. Nothing came easy.

    Look I canít lie, I love seeing Portland fans tortured. It wasnít 2000 over again, but they kinda choked away some games in this series.

    Yeah, but nothing will ever compare to that epic collapse in game 7 at Staples Center.

    Yes experience matters and I think that and the fact GSW is really damn good caused the 4-0 sweep. Blazers were in or winning games for 3 of them but just couldn't deal with the pressure. I know the Cavs had the same issue. They would be in games and simply would let them take control. I know I can be critical of the worship that Curry gets but he showed up this series. I do believe that Draymond is more important just due to his defense and hustle but that is another topic. Kudos for 5 Finals. I really do not see either the Bucks or Toronto taking a game. Both inexperienced with the Finals and don't think they can keep up with the pressure. I hope so but I see another 4-1 or 4-0 Title for GSW

    It is really going to depend on the "Secondary" scoring for Toronto or Milwaukee.

    The defensive combination of Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Iguodala will be able to limit Kawhi or Giannis. At the very least they will be able to force them into an ISO game and limit the effectiveness of the entire team.

    Warriors look like they get a 9 day rest. If KD is back, I think they can win it in 6. No KD...... Warriors in 7. With the Raptors/Bucks having home court, this will not be a sweep for the Warriors.

    Not sure it matters at all but GS lost both games against Toronto and split vs the Bucks. I think either team gives them a series.

    League looking to possibly start west coast games in the 6:00 hour next year with east coast ratings down due to Lebron moving west.

    LOL. That aint why your ratings are down. You've had the Warriors for five years. Now it's a problem?

    Sure, Lebron not being around for 8:00pm is probably hurting a little, but you couldn't have his games on every night anyway
    It goes way beyond that.

    The fact you have a team no one can beat doesn't help. A three point game that translates into boring. No one plays defense in the regular season. Everyone wants at least twenty games off during the regular season. Many of the games players aren't going all out. No big stars in the east to take Lebron's place...you got way bigger problems.

    I think each of them are capable of winning a couple games. Maybe even the upset.
    The only thing that gives me pause is that both of them go cold on the road. GS might go cold once, but usually they find a way to score when they need it the most.

    As the article said, thereís no one reason. But you canít deny both having Lebron out of the playoffs AND the leagueís biggest draw playing games that start at 1030pm where 50% of the population lives arenít two of the reasons.
