ANDn a competition as dynamic and long-running as an NBA series, you shouldn’t expect a second game to be an early final. But the The NBA Finals reach the second stop at the Chase Center in San Francisco with the obligation on the part of the locals, the Golden State Warriors, not to face an impossible practically. Come back from 0-2 to the Celtics, with three appointments at the TD Garden.
The Warriors arrive with doubts to the second game. They are logical, because their scoring explosion in the first game did not serve to do what they had been achieving throughout the post-season: break it. Curry was undetectable and alone, but the The Celtics got hooked on the hand of their less than stellar players. Largely due to a blurred Jayson Tatum -Although brilliant from the point of view of the vision of the game and the assists-. A cocktail in which those of Kerr only received.
Al Horford, the resurrected Celtics: knocks down the Warriors with 26 points and 6 triples
Udoka, with coach changes and adjustments, allowed the game to turn around and resolve in favor of the Celtics. Hit on the table, for the reaction that left the Warriors in ‘shock’. And it is important for the second game, because it was based on the depth of the rotation, the adjustments and getting intelligence without the ball in hand. A mixture, in which Payton Pritchard and Derrick White emerged, and that can be repeated because it is Boston’s identity.
As it is, the Warriors must react in San Francisco. is the first time in all the playoffs in which they give away home court factor to start. In fact, most of the defeats were due to low intensity from the start and the mistake of their stars. Against Boston it was the disaster of their second unit and that with the return of the best they did not understand how to react. If they fail to defend Boston’s changes and close the shot they will suffer again. Without knowing with what result, but it is not a good prognosis.
Steve Kerr said at the Last hours that “it was important to turn the page and understand the ups and downs during the qualifying rounds”. Also that they had studied the reaction of the Celtics. They know they have the weapon of rhythm and outside shooting, but to this must be added more defensive effectiveness and a change of pace that is unknown if they have. That’s where your options will go.
