Game Thread: Close it out, champs!
Game 6 Klay and the rest of the Warriors have a shot at history tonight
Seven years ago on this exact date, the Golden State Warriors won their first championship in my lifetime. Tonight, against the Boston Celtics, they get a chance to repeat the feat for the fourth time in my lifetime. That’s a pretty incredible turnaround.
But before we pop the champagne (or not, I won’t judge your drink of choice) the Warriors are going to have to close out an opponent that had people freaking out not all that long ago after going up 2-1 on Golden State. However, though the Warriors haven’t been able to close out their three earlier playoff series on the road, there seems to be momentum. Boston has been trying to pick their poison all series, but have yet found a way to stop both Curry, and the Warriors offense at the same time. Meanwhile, Draymond Green has rediscovered his championship defense, and Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney have both silenced their critics through months upon months of excellent play.
I’m so tense.
