More trouble? Or are the Warriors actually going to pull this one through and win it?
Boston has a worse record than the Warriors, but they’re playing some good basketball. Also, I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: the Celtics ARE NOT a better team without their point guard Rajon Rondo.
Without him at the helm, they don’t know what they’re doing. Having a winning record since Rondo sustained his injury may just be a blessing, who knows? Nevertheless, the Warriors have dropped two straight and are looking to get back into the groove.
In New York, Stephen Curry was absolutely unconscious with a career best 54 points. This is the highest scored by any NBA player this season. Despite Curry’s performance, the Warriors were still unable to get the win, which may point to trouble.
If one other guy, particularly his “Splash Brother”, Klay Thompson, had it going, the Warriors would have trounced the Knicks. Unfortunately, however, their lack of size, and cold shooting (except Curry), was ultimately their downfall. Against the Celtics, the Warriors shouldn’t have as big of a problem, as Kevin Garnett is the tallest guy they’ve got.
