Warriors Even!

June 3, 2019

The Golden State Warriors went on an (18-0) run that transformed a 5 point halftime deficit (the fact that deficit was only 5 points, augured well for G.S, which is seeking a third straight crown and fourth in five seasons) into a 13 point lead, and won game 2 at Toronto (Raptors) to even the ’19 NBA final.

Golden State, in their fifth straight final, led (2-0) in the last three and have only trailed (2-0) in two of their eleven final round series, both times, to great teams, the ’64 Boston Celtics and ’67 Philadelphia 76ers, each of those teams led by great centers, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain respectively.

The ’15 final was (1-1) and manifested in Golden State winning the series in 6 games with Andre Iguodala, named series most valuable player.

In game 2 last night Iguodala sealed the Warriors’ win with a 3 point shot, accounting for the game’s final points, with 6 seconds remaining in the “GS” 5 point win.

Speaking of 5, the Warriors have opened as 5 plus point(s) favorites, in game 3 to be played Wednesday night, at  Oracle Arena, the Warriors home since 1971, in this the Warriors’ last season playing at that storied venue.
