What's up people! My name is Jaipal and today I'm going to bring you my knowledge, thoughts, and opinions on the 6th seed in the Western Conference, the Golden State Warriors. I understand that I have posted this a little later than I usually have done, but rest assured, I will compensate for it with a second post on the same day, since you guys seem to like that.
Anyways, the Golden State Warriors are the 6th seed in the Western Conference, currently playing 3rd seed Denver Nuggets. The series is tied 1-1 with the third game happening today in the home of the Warriors (which is somewhere in California). Now, recent news that has most likely assured the victory of the Nuggets would be the fact that David Lee would be out for the rest of the playoffs (if they were to make it that far, which they won't) with a torn hip flexor, which is a muscle. The other thing would be that Stephen Curry is now playing with a sore ankle, no specifications on how bad it was said. This is seriously going to stunt the Warriors' ability to score off the dribble, which Curry is so accustomed to doing on a regular basis. Their starting lineup: Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut, and, most likely, Festus Ezeli. I don't know if that's who they'll choose, but he's their most likely decision I believe. Stephen Curry has been deemed by me to be the best shooter in the NBA, and he has proven it time and again this season, as he has a surplus of 50+ scoring games. He won't be on the top of his game, but this still doesn't mean he isn't a threat to the Nuggets. This team is full of shooters as Klay Thompson and David Lee (who's out) are excellent shooters from any range almost. These dudes account for the mass of Curry's assists. Harrison Barnes, the rookie who can dunk, shoot, rebound, is an all-around kind of power forward player. As for Andrew Bogut, he doesn't offer much except for a few boards and points. He hasn't come back from his injury yet, but in time, he'll become the player he used to be back when he played for the Bucks.
Notable players off the bench would be Carl Landry and Kent Bazemore, a fellow rookie with Harrison Barnes. Carl Landry is an excellent backup if you desire to give your starting rebounder a rest. He'll deliver what you desire in rebounds, exceptional for a bench player. As for Kent Bazemore, he's a replacement Barnes, although he doesn't play with the same intensity because Barnes is a better athlete and he's a guard instead of a forward. I believe that the Warriors should look for a better back up point guard because Scott Machado just isn't cutting it. I'm not sure who they should pick, and I'm not fully aware of who's going out to the draft. I've confirmed Juvonte Reddic and Gorgue Dieng, two outstanding college centers. I'll also have an NBA mock draft with all 60 picks, so wheneve the list comes out, I will give you 15 picks a post. That equals four (I say this for those who are bad at math).
Anyways, I have given you the information on the Golden State Warriors as I see it. If you still believe that the Warriors will beat the Nuggets, then I hope that you can endure their loss when it happens. By the way, did you know that if you say beer can in a British accent, you're saying bacon in a Jamaica accent. Random, I know, but it's kinda cool. See ya! There is a second post coming up!
