The Warriors obviously showed up in a much different way in Game 2 than they did in Game 1 when they got off to a really sluggish start.
Last night, they were locked from the opening tip. Especially Steph Curry who hit 6 three’s in the first quarter. And that was that. Ballgame. Thanks for coming. See you back in San Antonio.
Not only were they looking to get off to a better start. They were looking to send a message. Message being, we don’t like hearing how dirty we are. Or how lucky we were to win Game 1. Or that we wouldn’t have won that game if Leonard didn’t go down.
They came out with a serious attitude. And kept it the entire game, continuing to attack the basket late in a blowout.
They respect the hell out of Gregg Popovich and the Spurs, but after Pop’s tirade against Zaza Pachulia, and all the hate coming from everyone else, you just knew Golden State would have a little something for the Spurs. And for their haters. And they did.
A nice swift ass kicking in a game that was over before it even started. Most predictable thing ever.
Last night was always going to happen. The Warriors didn’t play well in Game 1, so you knew they had to come out with more intensity, at both ends. And they had to shoot better. Just as everyone knew San Antonio wasn’t going to be the same without Kawhi. And they weren’t. Obviously.
