Warriors Sweep Blazers, Await Their Final Challenger
The Golden State Warriors are headed to their fifth NBA finals appearance. Facing insurmountable odds, a wounded Damian Lillard, summoned all the game he had left in the tank. Still, Golden State, sans Kevin Durant, proved to be overwhelming for the Blazers, concluding the sweep of their opponent with a 119 – 117 victory, yesterday.
Now they lie in wait for the winner of the Bucks/Raptors series. Who will meet them for the final dance and walk away with the Tiffany & Co. designed Larry O’Brien championship trophy?
Perhaps Kawhi Leonard, and his Toronto squad, marching to the beat of their entirely appropriate mantra #WeTheNorth will deliver an unexpected Game-of-Thrones-style plot twist? I mean, anything is possible, right?
