Game 4 of the NBA Finals was a big disappointment for the Warriors after losing their second straight game to the Raptors, falling behind Toronto 3-1 in the series. Klay Thompson returned to the starting lineup and Kevon Looney also came back from injury, but Kawhi Leonard and Serge Ibaka were too much for the Dubs.
Join us after every 2019 NBA Finals game. After the game two win by the Warriors evened the series, Joe and Ray dissect the drama that took place in Toronto, including an 18-0 Golden State run to start the 3rd quarter and surviving injuries to Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney.

Complete game analysis as we ponder the Warriors falling behind 1-0 in a playoff series for the first time in 3 years and the first time in the finals under Steve Kerr.
Special Guest Kerith Burke from NBC Sports Bay Area joins Dubs OT to give her unique perspective after covering the Warriors all season as the sideline reporter. Ray and Joe analyze the game 4 win and sweep of the Blazers, then look ahead to the NBA Finals.
On the Sunday off day between games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference Finals in Portland, Steve Kerr, Draymond Green and Steph Curry talked to the media. Joe Castellano had brief questions and answers from all three that you will hear in today’s special Dubs OT podcast.
Andre Iguodala stole the ball from Damian Lillard and the Warriors held on to beat the Blazers to take a 2-0 series lead in the Western Conference Finals. Steve Kerr said that the Dubs were “outplayed” and that Golden State “stole” one after his team came back from a 17-point deficit for the win. The Warriors don’t seem to miss Kevin Durant so far, but do they need him going forward? We tackle that question and talk about the Steph Curry/Seth Curry matchup.
The Warriors took out the Rockets in 6 games and now it’s on to the Western Conference Finals. With Kevin Durant healing from a calf injury, the Splash Brothers combined for 60 points. Steph Curry was held scoreless in the first half, but scored 33 points in the second half to lead the Dubs. Klay Thompson chipped in with 27 points and the bench made a major impact for the first time in the playoffs. Joe and Ray discuss game 6 and get you ready for the next series against either Portland or Denver.
The Warriors missed a bunch of layups and lacked a sense of urgency as the Rockets evened up the series at two games apiece. Golden State is lamenting the fact that they got outshot from the 3-point line and lost the offensive rebounding battle in two close games in Houston. Game 4 featured another great performance by James Harden with PJ Tucker making his presence felt in many ways.
