The Western Conference Finals are now set, it will be an epic matchup between The Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Series starts Monday at 9:00 P.M. E.T. and will be broadcasted on TNT.
I was not expecting this. I'm pretty sure everyone expected the Spurs to advance, especially after their early blowout win in the series. However, the Thunder definitely bounced back and found a way to limit Aldridge's open looks. This series is going to be amazing, especially after the 3 battles that these two teams had during the regular season. Do I need to remind you of what happened?
While everyone thinks that this series is going to be easy. I think it's definitely going to 7 games. I have my money on the Warriors, however the Thunder are a totally different team. During the regular season, the Thunder were a terrible 4th quarter team. As we have seen with this last series against the Spurs, the Thunder have drastically improved their 4th quarter play. This will be crucial against the Warriors, as they were winning going into the 4th quarter in all 3 regular season games.
However, if Steph Curry is healthy, I don't think there is any way the Thunder can win. As for the Warriors side, they will need Iguodala to step up on defense. Since Durant dropped 30+ in the 3 regular season games, the Warriors will need to tighten up on defense. If Golden State can make things tough on Durant, this series will be theres.
Stay tuned for post game blogs, and remember to tune in Monday night at 9 on TNT for this incredible series.
