The Boston Celtics have home-court advantage throughout these NBA playoff games, but yet have shown that they can play with the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. The San Antonio Spurs are good for an old-fashioned two points and just-put-up-a-basket basketball philosophy has them playing the up-tempo Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are 2-0 in their series against the Spurs and San Antonio doesn’t have the basketball personnel to play these Stephen Curry-led basketball team. What will the Spurs do if they can’t get back Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker, their two valued starters? The Spurs relied on Leonard having the basketball to dominate the ball game and the Spurs won’t play like a team until they realize they have to make shots in order to beat the Warriors. Boston won’t defeat Cleveland, because they don’t have a superstar like Lebron James who has unmatched athleticism.
I have not been sounding off on the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. Although, these two NBA teams sound invincible, don’t be surprised if these two particular teams meet again in the 2017 NBA Finals. Cleveland might be able to get by Boston, if the Celtics beat the Washington Wizards in the East semi-finals. It will be a powerhouse match up if the Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics meet again. Don’t look hopeful, if the San Antonio Spurs can beat these star-studded Golden State Warriors, be prepared for a Spurs-Cavs showdown.
