The Golden State Warriors are looking to win their 3rd Championship In 3 Years this year. With the 2019 NBA Season coming to an end, that means the playoffs are coming up. The Warriors are heavily favored to win the 2019 NBA Championship, but you could say the Thunder, Rockets or even Nuggets are a threat to beat them in a Seven-Game series. In reality, if the Warriors play how they have been playing in the playoffs the last couple of years no team has a chance to beat them. The only team that can beat the Warriors are the Warriors themselves, whether that’s dealing with injuries or just playing bad basketball and missing shots no team has a legit chance at beating them.
If a team were to take the Warriors to 7 games In any series, that team better play amazing because Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant’s Game 7 averages are insane. Curry is averaged around 28.5 PPG 7.8 AST and 5.4 REB in Game 7s. Kevin Durant averages 26.3 PPG 4.5 AST and 8.7 REB in Game 7s. When Curry and Durant are on the floor together the Warriors have a plus 14.8 efficiency rating when those two are on the court together when Durant is out and Curry, Klay, and Draymond are in they have a plus 13.8 efficiency rating. So you can see when Curry and Durant are on the floor the team plays much better so Durant and Curry better rest up because the Warriors are gonna need them to play a lot of minutes in the playoffs if they wanna win their 3rd Championship In 3 years. Let’s get into NBA Finals Numbers Curry is averaging 27.6 PPG in all 4 of his Finals appearances while shooting 53% from three which is outstanding. Curry is not only efficient puts up good numbers but he also makes his team better in almost every statistical category no question the Warriors would not be where they are Today without Stephen Curry and he needs to put up big numbers this year in the playoffs for them to be able to win the title again.
