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.
In game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals both the Rockets and Warriors saw top players go out with injuries and return. James Harden battled back after getting hit in the eyes. Steph Curry played after dislocating a finger on his left hand. In the end, Golden State won another close game at home to go up 2-0 in the series which is headed back to Houston on Saturday for game 3. Ray and Joe dissect game 2 and the series so far.
The Warriors took game 1 of their playoff series with the LA Clippers 121-104. Joe and Ray talk about Steph Curry’s 38 point performance, the ejections of Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley and what to expect in game 2 on Monday night in Oakland.
The Warriors 16-game home playoff winning streak ended on Tuesday night in Oakland as the Rockets evened up the Western Conference Finals at 2-2 with the series headed back to Houston on Thursday. Joe and Ray discuss what went wrong in game 4 and look ahead game 5.
Anthony Davis had a big game and the Warriors were blown out in game 3 of their series with the Pelicans. Was the effort lackluster in New Orleans? Ray and Joe dive into what we can expect in game 4 on Sunday. Plus, we hear from Klay Thompson and Steve Kerr.
The Warriors took down the San Antonio Spurs in 5 games. Now it’s time to look ahead to the Western Conference semifinal series with the New Orleans Pelicans, who surprisingly swept the Portland Trailblazers in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. Ray and Joe dissect the two teams before they get together for game 1 on Saturday night in Oakland.
