Yep. Two things..

Wiggins shut down Tatum, something no one predicted, and are not talking about too much. The narrative being Tatum was just off, fatigued, etc. Wiggins has emerged as a solid to elite defender.

Steve Kerr thoroughly out coached Ime imho. And that won’t be discussed much either, but the fact of the matter is, the Warriors made adjustments, and ultimately figured out the Celtics on BOTH ends of the floor.
If not for that crazy hot streak the Celtics had in Game 1, this would have been over in 5. As it was, not really as close as it seemed. Warriors figured them out. No real point guard for the Celtics who could help them get their offense in some kind of rhythm, while the Warriors simply had too many weapons.

Bad news for the league is Warriors have $$$$……..give no chits about salary cap fines, and have a core of FOUR young guys who are gonna be very good to dominant players in the league.

Yup.
And, I was very happy with the outcome.

Can’t remember who I was listening to or watching but they talked about an assistant coach or Iguadala (basically and assistant coach) spoke with Wiggins in the off season about becoming an elite defender and that it was the key to his growth. He has a tremendous impact throughout the playoffs.

I’d take Wiggins over Durant any day. You could tell how tight the team is, LA wishes they had that……it’s a real thing that Labron has never built.

Ime made a ton of questionable decisions throughout the playoffs, not a place for OTJ experimentation.

I’m not sure what the Celtics offense with Tatum would look like with a real PG. would be interesting.

Starts at the 10.10 point.
Smart had been mugging Curry all night, with some cheap shots thrown in for good measure.
Curry says…….”Yeah? OK……….here ya go”

Just fuqin beautiful, and vicious at the same time.

Curry was all banged and scratched up after the game.

Dubs definitely the better team this series.

Refs weren't very good, but they didn't seem to influence the outcome.

Green is still a punk. Smart is a punk in training.

The C's two worst games all post season were the last two in the finals. That isn't encouraging, but they're young.




And Brown just bounced it off his foot again.

I blame Ime for not making the adjustments.
They relied too heavily on trying to create mismatches, usually on Curry, but he held up big time.

Warriors exposed…
Tatum’s mediocre moves to his left…
Smart’ mediocre handle…
White’s less than mediocre passing…
Williams lack of any offense………anything……he just does put backs, etc
And more…

And REALLY,,,,,, the Celtics let Horford guard Curry, one on one, at the top of the key, with no help??
Brilliant……..just turns into a Curry layup drill, right in the middle of Boston’s final, and pathetic comeback attempt.

Warriors simply MADE the Celtics fold. You could see it with 5 minutes left in the first half……… Celtics were done…….and their fans knew it.

You just have to pick the right streets……and they have steam cleaner crews.

Part of that parade route I would not walk around at night. They will definitely have to scrub some of that area and chase of the homeless and drug dealers.

Something tells me to never watch a live "stream" from San Fran.
