They dropped the first two in their last series too before going on to win.  At least it was a little closer yesterday than game 1 lol

Warriors are a different beast than the Suns.  Mavs interior defense is not that good and the Warriors will continue to exploit it. Maybe the Mavs should play Boban lol 

Yeah I totally agree about the warriors.  They have that championship pedigree.  But babon would be a true game changer.  Dude only has to jump about 6 inches off the ground to dunk it.  

Im actually kind of rooting for the mavs bc I grew up watching Jason Kidd and he deserves some success coaching.  I think he’s done a great job with the team this year.

Dallas, what the hell was that!?

Yeah when I fell asleep last night they had a decent lead.  I was surprised to wake up and see that not only had they lost, but lost by 9.  Like Kidd said, they died by the 3.



So, if you’re the Warriors, which matchup do you prefer?
Celtics or Heat?

Whichever has the worse defense; however, both are solid defensive teams. I can see the Heat being a slightly better matchup for them because their offense isn't as lethal and Jimmy's not very consistent. Bam is the outlier that may give the Warriors trouble inside. Either team, I think the Warriors still win.

I think the better question is, will either one of those teams even be healthy enough to compete with the Warriors once they get past the other?

C'mon Mavs! Give us a series! Fight tooth and nail!



Dubs advance. Heat Celtics game 7!!!



If I'm the Warriors, I'm not sure who I'd want to face:
The Celtics look like they're the tougher matchup with their defense and length. But Jimmy Butler is the real deal and the Heat have been to the Finals before.



Game. Set. Match.
We have our NBA Finals!!!

It’ll be the Boston Celtics against the Golden State Warriors!

This is gonna be a matchup of polar opposites!



I'm honestly going to be very surprised if this up and down Celtics team, that kept letting the battered, bruised, and offensively challenged Heat come back on them time and again, are able to seriously contend with the Warriors. I hope I'm wrong, cus it would be nice of course to get a really competitive series, but I expect the Warriors are probably gonna dismantle them.
