Interesting to see that the Raps have already beaten the Bucks in Milwaukee despite Giannis having 43 and 18 and the Raps didn’t have Lowry or Gasol (yet to join team). Withstood 49% shooting and 14 3-balls from the Bucks.
A resilient bunch. See Kanter for example.
A few years back when they semi blew up their squad I never thought they'd bounce back so quickly to prominence but they've done a hell of a job building depth on their roster around Lillard and CJ. I reckon they have enough fire power and self belief to make it a hard one at least. The health of Rodney Hood is critical. He has been enormous in some big playoff moments for them.
A lot of good storylines like the Curry family and lol remember this:
During an appearance on McCollum’s podcast last summer, Durant laughed at McCollum when McCollum suggested that the Blazers could win a championship. Later asked on Twitter about the interaction, McCollum called Durant’s decision to join the Warriors “soft,” to which Durant responded, “U think that low of me CJ? I just did your f— podcast. Snakes in the grass boy I tell ya.”
Wouldn’t be surprised if the KD injury is worse than they are making it out to be and he misses this entire series. Warriors should get it done without him. Warriors in 5.
Raptors were my tip out of the East pre-playoffs but that Philly series was concerning. Kawhi was extraordinary, Siakam was decent enough. Hardly got anything out of the others. The support cast will have to step up big time because the Bucks look very good right now. Bucks in 6.
