Overwhelming Strength In Numbers

Jude Thaddeus L. Bautista

Theoretically Cleveland’s strategy was sound: make anyone else but Steph Curry and Klay Thompson score. Kyrie Irving played great defense against Steph, LeBron drew early fouls from Klay. The Cavs let ‘everyone else’ beat them except for Golden State’s two record-breaking superstars. The problem is they did. The Warriors’ ended Game 1 of the NBA Finals with 7 players in double figures defeating the Cavs 104-89 (June 3, 2016-Mla Time).

The win embodies the Strength in Numbers banner at the Oracle Arena and on the t-shirts. Courtside seats have been sold as high as $29,000 especially since the exciting game 7 against OKC.

Leading the way for the Warriors is a season high for Shaun Livingston at 20 pts. He took advantage of his 6’7” height and made mid range jumpers over 6’1” Kyrie Irving. Livingston has played for a total of 9 NBA squads and could still recall when 20 win teams would cut him from their line-up.

Coach Steve Kerr has the unusual strategy of using as many players on his roster as he possibly can. Ball movement, extra passing is something that every player does. If you know that everyone will get to play and everyone passes the ball, everyone is motivated to share. Assists totals bear this out with 29-17.

Klay Thompson had limited playing time because of foul trouble and was not a factor in Game 1.

Another factor for bench production was Klay Thompson’s early foul trouble. LeBron was able to draw a 3rd foul on Klay as early as 2Q, which limited his playing time. Livingston and Leandro Barbosa had started scoring from the first quarter.

The team defense of the Warriors was stifling early on forcing two 24-second violations in the 1Q. Andre Iguodala even had back-to-back steals on Kyrie Irving, which resulted in fast break points.

The Warriors lead until an 11-0 run by the Cavs in the 3Q. Coach Steve Kerr was so angered he karate chopped a clipboard and split in two. Fans were shocked, as Kerr is usually unemotional during the games. Later on he said, “Destruction tends to ease some of the anger. So I try to take it out on a clipboard instead of a player. So it’s better that way.”

The game had back and forth lead changes but the Warriors maintained the lead 76-68 going into the 4Q. Then came the burst of scoring from Shaun Livingston, Leandro Barbosa and Andre Iguodala. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson each had a three pointer to keep the lead permanently. But was an otherwise forgettable scoring night for the Splash brothers for a combined 20 points. Barbosa had 11 points while Iguodala had 12 pts 7 rebs and 6 assists. Andre’s defense was key on both LeBron and Kyrie the same way his defended both Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant in the previous series.

Cavs Possible Solution

If the Warriors could beat the Cavs without Steph and Klay’s normal shooting, what else could they do?The Cavs may take comfort in the fact they contained Steph and Klay. The problem now is finding out they still have to stop 4 or more ‘other’ scorers.

LeBron was one assist away from a triple double: 23pts, 12 reb and 9 assts. LBJ is a natural passer and someone who WANTS to get his teammates involved. Kyrie Irving was the CAVS leading scorer with 26 points. Kevin Love had 17 points and 13 boards.

What they need to do is actually involve their bench even more. They have the personnel to do this. Channing Fye was added to their line up to shoot more treys. And yet only managed 2pts in his paltry 7 minutes.

LBJ6F

Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith are proven scorers both in the 3point area and drives to the basket. Matthew Dellavedova is also a consistent shooter. LeBron isn’t the only 6-straight finals guy: James Jones is there. Timofey Mozgov played well in last year’s finals but hardly got playing time in this year’s playoffs. In game 1 Mozgov, Dahntay Jones, James Jones and Mo Williams only got to play during garbage time in the last 2 minutes.

J.E. Skeets of THE STARTERS believes that Richard Jefferson could be an X-Factor for the CAVS. Jefferson antagonized Raptors center Valanciunas in the previous series. If Jefferson can get Draymond Green to commit a flagrant or 2 technicals it will merit a one game suspension. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za3uhZLRwo4

Via J.E. Skeets from THE STARTERS, the Cavs could also use veteran Richard Jefferson to antagonize Draymond Green. Just one flagrant foul or 2 technicals would merit a suspension for green who ‘accidentally’ kicked Steven Adams in the groin.

IF the Cavs wanted to they could use all these players more both on the defensive and offensive end. The main difference is that the Warriors have been doing this all season long. Their starters are used to playing with their 2nd and 3rd units, vice versa. But the Cavs certainly have the personnel; they just need to give them minutes. If they don’t they’ll be overwhelmed by strength in numbers.

Thank God the Golden State Warriors are Champs!

The 2015 NBA Finals series has been one of the most exciting in history with Games 1 & 2 going to overtime.

For the record, the CLEVELAND Cavaliers just tied the series 1-1, 95-93. This has to be one of the tightest, most exciting finals series I’ve seen. For the first time in finals history games 1 & 2 have gone to overtime. But most observers believe the Golden State Warriors will still be eventual champions.

The headline for 2014 was Lebron’s return to his hometown of CLEVELAND.

The headline for 2014 was Lebron’s return to his hometown of CLEVELAND.

Personally, I have a strong affinity with the Warriors. San Francisco is the only U.S. city that I have gotten to know. 15 years ago, the team was one of the worst in the NBA. But I couldn’t care less. In the Philippines basketball is a religion, being able to watch an NBA game live is a dream come true.

San Francisco aka THE CITY, Oakland aka THE TOWN, they both call the Golden State Warriors their team.

The Warriors is a team the Bay Area could really unite and get into. I remember the Oakland Raiders getting to the AFC finals when I was there in 2000. The Baltimore Ravens beat them as AFC champs 16-3. But obviously not everyone was behind them in the Bay Area as San Francisco also had the 49ers. In baseball it’s the Oakland A’s and the San Francisco Giants. For basketball’s most prestigious league, however, it was the Golden State Warriors or nothing for The City (San Francisco) and The Town (Oakland).

Coincidentally the Bay Area is home to two large ethnic Asian groups. The 2000 census had the official number at 320,000 Filipinos. But I honestly think it’s far greater (about double or more). You could easily walk downtown and hear a few people passing by speaking in Tagalog. So you can imagine alot of our Fil-Am kababyans rejoicing with a Warriors championship.

It’s no surprise they’ve chosen Fil-Am Nayah Damasen to sing the Star Spangled Banner the past couple of years. The talented 10 year old gained recognition since the Western Conference Finals and Game 1 of this championship series. The Warriors have won each game she sings the anthem in this year’s playoffs. IF the Irish can lay claim to Boston, I think us Pinoys can consider The City as our second home.

Although back here in Manila, the old country, there are quite a few LeBron James fans. There were thousands, people lined up for blocks when Nike brought King James here at their Bonifacio High Street outlet. As I’m sure there are Pinoy fans in Cleveland as well, it’s just that the Filipino connection is far stronger with the Warriors.

Master Facial Wash also brought all-star power forward Kevin Love for the Master Game face challenge. The SMART Araneta Coliseum was filled to watch the exhibition game that also featured PBA stars Chris Tiu, Marc Pingris and many more.

Kyrie Irving had a crucial block on Steph Curry at the end of regulation to send Game 1 to overtime.

One might wonder if LBJ’s decision to abandon the Miami HEAT may have had some karmic effect on Kevin Love’s season ending injury. The CAVS would definitely be a better team with both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love healthy. One never knows how our actions can come back to haunt and harm us in the future even if those affected never get back at us.

The second large Asian ethnic group in the Bay area is even more obvious. San Francisco is home to the oldest and largest Chinatown. To be accurate there are innumerable nationalities and races that live in The City. My point is the large Filipino and Chinese communities will definitely be behind their beloved Golden State Warriors.

I STILL BELIEVE The Warriors are Champs

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that LeBron James can easily be one of the best to play the game EVER. He’s certainly in the top 5 of anyone’s list. People say he’s far more athletically gifted than either Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson. Thing is basketball is a team game. You need a whole team to work together.

NOT even three hall of fame players can guarantee you a championship. LeBron learned that the hard way in Miami, even with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade they were beaten by Dallas Mavericks in their first year (2011). MIAMI got their acts together and won two titles back to back (2012/2013) until the Spurs beat them again in 2014.

The problem is not that the Cavaliers don’t have enough good players. Even with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving injured they still have a decent frontline in Timofey Mozgov, Tristan Thompson and an emerging point guard in Matthew Dellavedova who hit crucial free throws / plays in game 2. J.R. Smith is talented, Shawn Marion & James Jones have more finals experience than the whole Warriors roster.

Dellavedova played better defense than Irving on Steph Curry on Game 2.

The difference is that The Golden State Warriors work better together as a team. Of course the Splash Brothers: Stephen Curry & Klay Thompson always gets the headlines. They’re certainly splashy to watch with their fancy passes, dunks and 3 pt bombs. But everything really is a team effort whether on offense or defense. Every single player’s passing is snappy and quick, finding the open man, the best player to score and its not always one of the Splash Brothers. Harrison Barnes made a crucial trey at overtime to put them up permanently 108-100 in game 1.

Apart from Le Bron James and Kevin Love (who’s injured). Golden State has Cleveland beat in every player position. Steph Curry is the current MVP and is also the 2015 3point Foot Locker Champ as well.

Andre Iguodala has been the epitome of self-sacrifice for the Golden State Warriors.

Andre Iguodala is the epitome of self-sacrifice that the whole Warriors team has bought into. He was a former All Star turned sixth man. He was a starter for most of his career, it took some convincing but his better defense and scoring is a boost off the bench. His defense on LBJ didn’t prevent the big numbers (44pts in Gm 1/39-Gm2). But made him struggle in ‘key plays’ especially in the last 2 minutes. Every single player knows their role and does it well: Andrew Bogut, Shaun Livingston, Festus Ezeli and Leandro Barbosa.

Rookie head coach Steve Kerr will lead his young players to their first NBA Championship. The Golden State Warriors won the championship in 1947 and 1975.

Is it just me or does Draymond Green look like Martin Lawrence’s twin brother? Green is a great example of Defense, passing and rebounding. FYI Martin Lawrence is alive and well in spite of an Internet death hoax. The BIG MOMMA and BAD BOYS star is not in any way related to Draymond Green except with their similarities in facial and goatee features.

Even former All Star David Lee who has hardly seen playing time in the finals has bought into the team concept: “We’ll just see what happens. I love it here. We have accomplished a lot here. We’ll see once the season’s over. The most important thing, though, is getting this ring first and then worrying about that later.” Quoted by Scott Howard Cooper in his story: ‘Lee focused on Finals now, uncertain future later’

IN spite of being benched David Lee still wants to stay with the Warriors.

The statement is significant especially with the imminence of Lee being traded as he admitted. It’s going to be a really tough and exciting series. But the Warriors are a true team in every sense of the word that’s why they’ll be the 2015 champs.

The Warriors work better together as a team vs the Cavs and the rest of the league. That’s why they’re going to be champs.
