The Warriors gave up 114 points to the Heat on this night.
And won by 9.
In Miami. Becoming the only Western Conference team to beat the World Champions in their home crib since… the Warriors did it last year, playing exactly the same way.
Playing The Right Way, for this most gloriously gifted offensive team in the NBA.
I’m not going to recap this game, because as everyone who reads this blog knows, I have been recapping it for four long years. In my mind, and on the pages of this blog, trying my best to explain to others the players that Stephen Curry and David Lee could become, together, if surrounded with the right pieces, the right coach, and if played in the right system.
Championship Caliber Players.
Tonight, after three long years, you finally saw it not in my words, but in action on the court. I’ll leave it to my faithful readers to fill in the details.
After I get one more thing off my chest:
Joe Lacob, the time for cheapness and running the Warriors like a business is over. This Warriors team stands on the cusp of greatness. The Championship of the NBA is up for grabs this season, and this Warriors team has it in their sights. It is beyond time for you to open the purse strings and get them the help they need. For long-suffering Warriors’ fans sake, for the sake of one of the most gloriously talented cores in NBA history, for the sake of basketball history itself,
GET STEPHEN CURRY A BACKUP.
