anyone else hoping we close out the Cavs and somehow the rockets close it out and are without a healthy chris paul in the finals?
It's all coming up Celtics lol
I hate to be that guy in regards to injuries, but those were my exact thoughts on it. I think after the season the Celtics had with injuries, they have earned some breaks going their way though. Hopefully we can close out the Cavs.
Yeah, we are due some injury luck. It has derailed a bunch of title runs in the last thirty+ years.
I wouldn't be surprised if a hobbled Rockets team shoots their way to a game 7 victory. If their roleplayers hit 3's - and often it is the roleplayers who get hot in those ultra-high-pressure game 7's - then they have a great chance. Especially considering the Warriors' propensity for choking.
And honestly we have the defensive personnel to match up against both teams.
Also the Warriors do not look particularly healthy or athletic right now. Their biggest weakness - their lack of inside scoring - seems even worse than usual. They can't finish a shot inside. And when they become completely reliant on outside shots, those shots get harder in the big moments.
Klay and Curry don't seem right. Iggy is hurt. Draymond seems a step slower.
We have a real shot here, and that is pretty awesome.
