Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Draymond Green
It is but an excellent season for the Dubs, on their 6th win in 9 matches, the defending champs are playing well so far since the season their journey to defend the title commenced. We see them win close games, crush their opponents completely with huge gaps. I know you’re thinking the same, and you asked this question at least once when you watched the Warriors play.
“What exactly are they doing to keep on winning and winning?”
Unlike the other powerhouse teams in the league such as the Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics, the Warriors offensive power does not have a single focus. It is scattered yet solid when made impact. You may or may have not noticed this but with the mentioned teams, their offense are a typical one man push.
For the Bucks, it is the Greek Freak Giannis Antetokounmpo, for the Cavs, well do I need to mention LeBron James and for the Boston, it is Uncle Drew Kyrie Irving leading the push.
That makes the Warriors game entirely different. In some games, it will be Durant, or Steph or maybe Klay who’ll play monstrous all throughout.
Yes, it is seldom to see them simultaneously on top of their game but even though only one would be able to step up, the others will play on average.
Unlike with Cavs, though LeBron will explode with an almost 40 point game, the rest of his team will only contribute puny, insignificant production.
Same with Bucks who’s ace Giannis plays huge games consistently yet still loses bad, for it is only him who is consistent to play great games whilst his team solely rely on his production.
But what about Kyrie Irving and the rest of the Boston Celtics? So far, their standings are better to compare with the Dubs. They bagged 6 wins out of 8 matches. Well, right now it is but hard to predict due to the absence of Gordon Hayward who is also one of the strongest pillars of the Celtic.
Or is it really hard? Celtics had been winning despite their incomplete form, which is a great sign that they can still cope with the void left by Hayward, isn’t it a sign of an unimaginable strength? Well, who knows, but one thing is for sure, the threat Celtics is trying to pour to the arena is not nothing.
Despite this two teams very close performance so far, their story is still far from the deciding peak of their journey. They are from the opposite sides of the league, and each of them must take down the toughest obstacles in their way.
The Boston Celtics biggest rival, the Cleveland Cavaliers wherein they lost from their first game, they are hungry to avenge their loss. On the other hand, Golden State Warriors will have to overthrow the Houston Rockets wherein they also lost in their recent game.
So what shall the Golden State Warriors do?
Write their story of Revenge and Redemption.
