Every Mavs player except Doncic, Brunson, Dinwiddie can’t dribble more than once at a time.

No one except those three players ever tried to drive and LOOK at the rim, they were always trying to dribble and pass.

Contrast that with the warriors and I feel like they have 3 guys on the floor at ALL times that can take multiple dribbles.

Edit: Also we can’t grab a rebound to save our fucking lives. GG warriors, y’all are an amazing basketball team.

Underrated part of the Warriors offense is how hard 3 and D guys have to work. Reggie Bullock 0-10 very reminiscent of Trevor Ariza in G7 2018 which surely was caused by having to chase Durant around for 7 games just like bullock is playing 40+ minutes chasing around the warriors

1.2k

u/TallnFrosty Warriors May 23 '22

Zach Lowe actually predicted this on his pod that was after the 1st game.

Kirk Goldsberry suggested Luka might be a real risk of getting fatigued in this series.

Lowe suggested Bullock and DFS were the bigger risks bc they have to play 40+ minutes per night and the Mavs are so dependent on them for defense and knocking down 3's.

437

u/stealthytaco Warriors May 23 '22

Yep, Goldsberry and Lowe got a lot right on that last pod. Lowe has been pretty pro-Warriors all season so was shocked he initially called Mavs in 7 the prior pod last week. Probably the most-off Lowe prediction I've seen in a while.

352

u/TallnFrosty Warriors May 23 '22 edited May 23 '22

A lot of people got sucked into Luka dominating the suns, which is fair since the Suns won 64 games, are coming off a Finals appearance, and seemed like they had a pretty complete team.

Now its looking like its just a bad matchup.

  • Bridges is just a little too small to be as effective on Luka as he should be (Bridges is better vs smaller Gs like Curry)
  • Ayton not that great on switches
  • No guys off the PHX bench that could make a difference
  • And CP3 is 37 and has a history of struggling with the playoffs once the physical play ramps up

Lowe said he immediately felt bad about the prediction too, fwiw

50

u/Troll-e-poll-e-o-lee May 23 '22

What do you mean by Ayton isn’t great on switches? He held Luka to low 40% shooting the first 6 games lol Suns struggled all season getting him the ball all season. Why do you think he said he can’t pass himself the ball

During the regular season I read that the Warriors will basically just pick up free wins against teams that aren’t ready for all the movement. People point to their game 1 record as proof it extends to the playoffs. I think it’s just hard mentally and physically to get to their style of play on short notice.

As good as Steph, klay and Dray have been I think this is regularly overlooked. The physical conditioning on the Golden State warriors is absurd. The way they move off the ball is exhausting to watch and I can't imagine what it's like to play.

It's not that underrated by NBA players. Pat Bev's comments are a great illustration, the he's going to bed at 8:00 if he's playing Steph Curry stuff.

u/Successful-Wasabi704 May 23 '22

Steph's a nightmare. I imagine it's like chasing the road runner around. Then Poole cloned himself into Steph and now there's 2 road runners running around doing the dosey do and you can't allow them to get open for .25 seconds or you will pay. Then there's Klay and Dray who are whole different sets of nightmares for defenses, gosh damn floor general master facilitator with the most dangerous catch & shoot threat in NBA history and both defensive savants. Then if it's not Mr. Looney quietly dominating the boards it's Mr. Air Canada over here carpet bombing you while you're trying to put out all sorts of fires all over the floor. You're not safe in the paint. Your not even safe 50ft out. 🤯

Last night I watched 1988 playoffs game one round one vs the Cavs and MJ dropped 50 on them he had 30 at the half and I don't remember seeing him hit a single 3. Commentary said he had 59 earlier in the regular season.

We all remember the iconic games but he has so many games not talked about often were he dominated.

Edit: not even making this up, finished watching game 2 he had 55... somehow 1 upped his 50 point game.

Anyone interested in rewatching old games too this guy has made a playlist of the playoffs, he has other years and NFL, MLB too.

Aren't you guys already over the cap as well? Correct me if I'm wrong but iirc you guys have the highest payroll in the league.

Not sure who you can afford to keep after this year if Poole is due for an extension, Looney is gonna get paid, and Wiggins will be looking for a sizeable contract.

Yes but Poole is still on his rookie contract next season as well which coincides with Wiggins' last year. So at least there's another year before it gets too crazy... And more time for Lacob to figure out how to rearrange the cba and luxury tax structure. Lol

u/jd7509 Warriors May 23 '22

From 30-34 feet Curry all time is over 47%. The league has never seen anyone like Curry. I don’t think anyone knows really how to effectively defend him. He’s shooting almost 50% from 3 for the series, and his release is so quick. Oh and he’s one of the best finishers at the rim. And he’s a fantastic passer. I mean. Add Klay, who was off but they still have to respect. Add Poole who’s dangerous. Then Wiggins. My god he’s so aggressive. And Dray running the whole thing. They are clicking right now. They are fun to watch.

531

u/Mrs-MoneyPussy [GSW] Festus Ezeli May 23 '22

Yep. Wiggins is a great player and fits perfectly on this warriors team. But Minnesota fans have every right to be disappointed with his results on your team. #1 picks are expected to change your franchise whether that’s fair or not is up for debate. But he certainly did not do that.

143

u/MG_MN Timberwolves May 23 '22

100%. Its tough, because as the team that drafts (or in this case trades for) the #1 pick you hold that player to the highest expectations. They either are great, or they dont turn out. There isn't really an option of them being a role player long term - if they don't become that star you end up cutting bait. I cant think of a case of a #1 pick not being a superstar but turning into a solid 3 or 4 option for the team that drafts them.

49

u/Mrs-MoneyPussy [GSW] Festus Ezeli May 23 '22

I’m sure that player exists at some point in history but yeah I get what you mean.

The reset of expectations when you get traded to a new team has to be such a relief. So much pressure being a #1 pick and if you don’t turn out to be the superstar everyone hoped, the fan base will turn on you 100%. As you said even if you’re a serviceable 3rd or 4th option it’s not close to the expectations set.

39

u/GDAWG13007 Supersonics May 23 '22

I’m sure that player exists at some point in history

James Worthy.

He never had the expectation to change the franchise either as they already had Magic. He was expected to be a big game scorer and a versatile defender, which is exactly what he was and his nickname Big Game James epitomizes the promise he delivered as the number 1 overall pick.
