Default Re: Can Golden State make it to the Finals???

if you play small ball against other teams like the spurs, they will eat you alive in the paint. duncan will have a grand buffet in rebounds and points if they put 6'6" defenders on him. the mismatch is a joke. but somehow dallas can't capitalize on that difference. instead they're just getting outrunned AND even outmuscled by the smaller dudes.

The only way GS make it to the finals is by beating everbody in the west.

golden state has won 8 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams. apparently the mavs are not going to survive the first round, don't you agree?

Mark Cuban's team ain't gonna win a championship.

If San Antoniuo was coached by Avery they would lose.. and Duncan would get shutdown on the post.. because Avery's offense is terrible..

LOL @ this racist dude above me. Avery is a damn fine coach, he's just going against a team full of players with more motivation, heart, and balls then the fugazy Maverick players. Not to mention a coach who just knows all of the Maverick's tendencies.

GS can't beat the Suns or the Spurs.

Duncan isn't a soft little ***** like Dirk, if you put a SG on him he'll go wild. the Suns do what the Warriors do only better and more reliably and nobody on GS stands a chance at guarding Amare who, again, attacks unlike Dirk.

besides, they play the Rockets second round, who are winning the title, so obviously they're going to lose that series.

Avery is a bad coach.. sure he can motivate players, but coach them? No.

no i don't think so. they don't match up with other teams as well as they do with Dallas, basically.

don't let your perception of a team that you maybe don't like mask what kind of a coach he is. that's just a delusional statement, :rollingeyes:

The Mavericks under Avery Johnson were the best regular season team in the league. 65 wins, and the best combined record in the league from the past two seasons. He coached them past the Spurs to the NBA Finals, in his first season no less. And all of this was just because of 'motivation' and not 'coaching'?!?! **** outta here ...

Not to mention Avery is the first coach ever to get a Mavericks team to play defense.

He's "coaching" them all the way to a first round exit, the man doesn't know how to make adjustments. He took a single gameplan (albeit, it was a good one), and was able to win many games doing so. But when he runs into a coach that knows that offense (Hello Nelly!), he get's lost.

So let me correct myself, he's a bad playoff coach.

That's bullsh*t and a clear shot at Nelly, the coach that "doesn't know a lick of defense". People just don't understand the difference between high scoring teams and bad defensive teams. Is he a bad defensive coach this year holding Avery's "AWESOME coaching ability" to sub 40% shooting every game? Is that why he's held them under their scoring average in two games already?

Myths.

i agree to an extent, the man has problems dealing with this golden state team and can go with a quicker lineup which he hasn't done enough. of playing the jet and harris together. but let's not forget, this series isn't over. it's 2-1.

The Warriors dont play exactly like Phx so that not true. They run but have better defenders and different style of offense...I think they can beat the Suns because when they play they can just post any1 Nash guards up at any time... Last time I saw them play Nash was soo pissed because he couldnt guard any1 on the Warriors not even Matt Barnes.
