Double K's Take: The Warriors 2015 Playoff Run...


                                                                                                  In a season that saw the Golden State Warriors become one of the best teams in the NBA today, they still have their detractors that think that somehow they got lucky. Well I say that playing in the toughest conference in football and still having a historic season should show that there wasn’t much luck involved. They were ranked in the top 2 in both offensive and defensive efficiency all season long. Then came the playoffs the time when the Warriors were going to be exposed as a weak team. Let’s take a look at how this weak team made a run to the Western Conference Finals…


Round 1 – Opponent: #8 New Orleans Pelicans, Result: GS 4-0 – There is no way that It can be said that the Warriors had a easy time with the Pelicans. Anthony Davis and company put up one hell of a fight even in being swept. At the end of the day the Warriors showed to be the better team and were able to shutdown the Pelicans and send them home with a moral victory or two…


Round 2 – Opponent: #4 Memphis Grizzlies, Result: GS 4-2 – This series showed some weakness that the Warriors had. They could be out done in one area and that is the low post. That is exactly what the Grizzlies did in game 2 and 3 they played physical basketball and sent the Warriors home unhappy and looking to find themselves. They did exactly that as they rattled off 3 more victories and advanced to the conference finals…


Round 3 – Opponent: #2 Houston Rockets, Result:??? – This is the farthest the Warriors have been in over 40 years, and I plan on relishing it. The Rockets will be a tough run as they are very skilled at all of the positions the Warriors have weakness. The Warriors are a team that will look to take advantage of every opportunity given to them by the Rockets. Final prediction is that the Warriors will take this series in 6 games and advance to the NBA Finals…
