The Warriors were looking for the same magic they had earlier this season against the Trail Blazers, but they came up short Wednesday night in Portland. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum were too much for the Dubs, combining for 61 points. We discuss the game and take a closer look at the value of Willie Cauley-Stein and Alec Burks.
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.
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 are on shaky ground of late, losing at home to the Lakers on Christmas Day and to the Blazers on Thursday night in OT. Ray and Joe try to figure out what’s going wrong with Golden State’s offense, including a shooting slump that Klay Thompson isn’t acknowledging.
