PBT Extra: How will Warriors respond to playoff adversity?

2 Comments

Nobody wins an NBA title without facing adversity. Not Jordan’s Bulls, not the Duncan Spurs, not Shaq and Kobe’s Lakers, not anybody.

The Warriors are getting facing their first real adversity of the playoffs, down 2-1 to the Grizzlies, and Julie Donaldson and I discuss how the Warriors will respond.

I think the Warriors will start to hit some of the shots they’ve been missing, but the question is can they get some more stops and turn those into transition/early opportunity points? Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph have won the battle inside, and that has taken away the easy buckets the Warriors thrive on.
