The Warriors are at home in the third game of the Western Conference Finals playing the Rockets. The Warriors are tied at 1 in the series and here’s how a win today seals the deal.
The key is the home court. A win today puts them up 2-1 in the series staying at home for Game 4 and even if they lose they have Game 5 and 6 to be a win away from the NBA Finals. Now not only does the home court matters, but the momentum matters too. With a win tonight they are at home for Game 4 with a chance to go up 3-1. Don’t see them choking this year.
Finally, how they will do this is by playing like they did in Game 1. They need to play defense. The starting forwards and centers scored a combined 21 points in Game 1. In Game 2, where the Rockets just won, The starting forwards and centers scored 46 points. Don’t tell me defense doesn’t win championships.
