Warriors vs. Cavs: What We Learned From Games 1 & 2

When a series starts out with two close games, at points it becomes a matter of perspective. Some will argue that each team “should” be up 2-0. Instead, what I see as the biggest story so far is that the Cavs will do their best to make the rest of the series look exactly like Game Two.

Warriors vs. Rockets: Takeaways After Victory in Game 1

I love Game Ones because they take some of the abstract concepts we talk about and put them to the test. Game One of Warriors/Rockets made me more confident that the Rockets have what it takes to win one or more games at full strength (well, as full strength as they will get this series) but it appears less likely that they will be that lucky. Simply put, Houston needs Dwight Howard. Even though Dwight stru ...
