IMO, barring injury, nobody is beating Curry and Thompson this year, and perhaps not for the next 2 or 3 years. Watch Thompson now when he shoots his fall-away jump shot. He starts backpedaling as soon as the ball leaves his hands--he knows it's going in.


I reiterate the stats from last year (regular season). GSW #1 in fg% at .495. Also #1 in opposing fg% AND in opposing 3pt%. Curry by far #1 in 3 pt shots made (324), and Thompson by far #2 in 3 pt shots made (268). Bradley Beal far back in 3rd place with 223.

D'Antoni, Harden & Paul are all big huge question marks when it comes to the playoffs. They certainly aren't scoring 50 in a quarter on the Warriors like they did in round 1 vs. the T'Wolves, and got semi-lucky that Rubio got injured in the Jazz series. The Rockets probably win the series anyways regardless but it might be an extra game or 2 if Rubio is healthy. Houston had better hold serve at home though. I know they only played once in Oakland this year and Houston won, but that was the opening day of the year, the ring ceremony where road teams generally play well, probably pissed that they are having the ring ceremony on that specific day they are in town. I have confidence the Warriors can win in Houston, I'm not sold on the Rockets winning in Oakland. If Warriors can get out of Houston 1-1 I think they are winning the series, if the Warriors can get out of Houston 2-0 they are definitely winning the series since the Rockets won't be winning twice at Oracle.

Neither of these teams are who they were in October & January when they played each other in the regular season. The Warriors have totally locked in on defense, and are holding opponents to the worst shooting in the playoffs. The Rockets have finely tuned their P&R attack, and Capela has grown tremendously as a pivot in their offense & defense. There are loads of lineup moves possible between these teams, but the series will come down to who can defend the opponent's attack more consistently. I like the Warriors to do it, but it's going to be a hard fought series, and either team is capable of winning.
