Loving Basketball: Game 4 was depressing; 5 was promising, and 6 a must-win for GSW

Game 4 was depressing

The Warriors-Lakers Round 2 Game 4 was extremely depressing for ThinkTalk to watch. Need I blog about it again? I watched as strange things were happening on court with the Dubs players looking so perplexed as all their efforts proved abortive. Golden State Warriors (GSW) were only down a point at the end of the first quarter and had led both the second and third quarters, but into the fourth was a different story. The most devastating was watching Curry throw away the ball at the dying critical seconds. That ball in the right Warriors’ hands could have either given the Warriors a win or forced the game into overtime. GSW fought till the end though. Sadly, Curry’s triple-double was insufficient and Warriors lost! You can read the NBA’s recap here.

The trait of a warrior is returning to the battlefield with optimism when everything around him/her states that he/she has lost. And so, true to their name, the Warriors faced the Los Angeles Lakers (LAL) in Game 5 with relentless optimism.

Game 5 was promising

Steph Curry, Warriors’ lead and guard, was hard-pressed on every side. Lakers made him work for all his shots. But other Warriors’ players took the reigns; notably Andrew Wiggins (aka “Wiggs”) who was super effective on all sides and Draymond Green who was the solo back-to-back opening scorer.

Kudos to Draymond on this game. He curtailed his fouls, brought his fire, and finished the night with a double-double. Here’s hoping that he will replicate it tonight.

Great players find other ways to contribute when their specialty isn’t working and Curry is no exception.”

Game 6 a must-win for GSW

This Series must end positively at the Chase Center. To ensure it does, Game 6 tonight is a win for Golden State Warriors and all the Dubs’ players must be locked in to make it happen. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
