The Dubs proved it all wrong. A huge missing link in the name of their ace point guard Stephen Curry won’t be a hindrance for their domination.
Why does Steph’s absence turn out to be beneficial for the team?
Steph Curry’s absence is just a huge void for the Dubs.
1. Klay Thompson could not focus as a shooting guard and could not play point guard at least as effective as Curry.
2. KD Would be Offensively Inconsistent
3. Outside Shooting Significantly Drops
Would there be a chance for the Warriors to take away the no. 1 spot on the west against rival Houston Rockets? Let’s all find out.
It’s not as though Kevin Durant is a piece of offensive machinery. Well in fact, even most highly calibrated machine that currently exist needs to shut down from time to time.
So what might happen if Kevin Durant will be the one who’s unable to play?
Now which has the holistic impact?
Golden State isn’t only Steph Alone
Stephen Curry one of the greatest shooters in the NBA is also funny guy
This is a new season. We’re back to square one.
Tomorrow, these two powerhouse teams will go head-to-head once again, back to square one.
It’s going to be Curry’s shooting efficiency against James Harden’s passing ability that will be tested tomorrow.
The arising point guards of this generation, who is the better one? And what makes him more special than the other?
Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry Similarly Different
Kyrie’s Fiery Start
Steph’s Late Full Bloom
Presence in the Game
Despite the relatively huge gap between the performances of the two favorite point guards of this generation. Stats still do not fully tell the effectiveness of the player, sometimes though one may not score or do anything, his presence is a huge factor in the flow of the game. Nevertheless, it’s too early for Kyrie to throw in the towel, he already had proven something. He’s a no ordinary guard. In fact, he would not be compared to Curry if he’s not one of the best the league has as of now.
How dangerous is the Warriors three-point shooting? What is the truth behind its firepower? Are they really the best 3-point shooters in the league?
It is their rival, the Cleveland Cavaliers who is in the top spot. Tying up to their performance beyond the arc is one of their toughest barricades in the west, San Antonio Spurs. Cleveland averaged 39 % while the Spurs and Warriors both with 38.4. It is quite close at first glance, but small decimal values in terms of comparing averages are relatively huge.
That explains why these three teams were considered to be the best in the league. In fact, the Warriors faced the San Antonio Spurs in the western conference finals.
But if three-point shooting, which is known to be Warriors main weapon, is not the best in the league, how come that they overthrew the Cleveland Cavaliers last season?
Forthsky Padrigao still has a long way to go and but with his current skills he may just be the real deal.

Kevin Durant finally won his first championship after a decade in NBA. He finished the game with 39 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists and he took home the Finals MVP Award. While his buddy, Stephen Curry managed to collect 34 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists.
But it was Andre Iguodala who sparked the Warriors of the bench as he finished the game with 20 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists. It was a big help for them as Klay Thompson was struggling in the game and finished with 11 points only.
Starting today, Kevin Durant will be a forever villain for the Cavalier fans. Not because he is a dirty player but he just basically shattered the hearts of millions of Cleveland fans.
