  • Stephen a stake in the Dubs and six Max is taking Toronto and six Toronto in six.

  • Max, you think that they're gonna clothes?

  • They would close them out in the last game.

  • And Oracle, that takes guts.

  • I've seen I've seen I've seen Steph Curry fold in the last game in Oracle against LeBron James on a team that, you know, LeBron was no better than I think than Kawai.

  • Now, if he was, it was marginally.

  • And, you know, I saw Steph Curry with 73 win team with the greatest half court offense of all time choke and not score a single point as a unit in the last four minutes and 22 seconds of that game I've seen in front Bryant Bryant.

  • Here's the problem with Max's argument.

  • Max doesn't remember that bag Dan.

  • He didn't even have facial here thous four years.

  • So here's why.

  • It's difficult to make a prediction, because I think that this is the most challenging defense that the Warriors have faced in their five year run.

  • I don't think people give enough credit toe how hard it was for the Raptors to get here.

  • The Stealthily 70 Sixers are a great team.

  • They've got some flaws, but they are great.

  • The Milwaukee Bucks are a great team, very difficult to defend with the way they play the Raptors have.

  • They start to different guys who are defensive player of the year.

  • Gasol and Kawai.

  • They've got a whole bunch of guys who've got experience who've been on all defensive teams.

  • They are big, bad, flexible long.

  • I think that it's going to be a bit of a culture shock to the Warriors to just what kind of defense they're going.

  • They're gonna play.

  • And that is why I think, especially without Durant, the Raptors have ah, have a shot.

  • But if the Warriors come out tonight and just run their split cuts and blow the Raptors defense away, then to me, that's what I gotta watch until I see it.

  • I really, honestly don't know how what the series is gonna go.

  • My mentality is very, very simple about this.

  • You know, I'm partial to shooters and when we talk about defense is it would be one thing if it was just schematically and you know what Steve Kerr is running An offense is split cuts that you talk about along with other things.

  • Picker rolls.

  • It could be picking pots.

  • Could be anything and you're shooting because you're open.

  • All right, I got my problem is that I've seen the Golden State Warriors where people draped all over them.

  • Just just lighten it up.

  • Let's be very, very clear that what we're talking about here.

  • Obviously, the Raptors are huge threat.

  • They are no joke defensively.

  • I think they're elite, no question.

  • But I want to make sure people understand that when you're talking about Steph Curry, you are talking about the greatest shooter we have ever seen in the history of basketball in Clay Thompson.

  • Ah, legitimate argument could be made.

  • This is one of the top five shooters in the history of basketball.

  • We don't call them that because they hit open shots.

  • We call them that because when they get on fire, it don't matter who's on them.

  • They launch and it drops.

  • That's what I'm talking about.

  • And when you think about the possibility of that happening, remember you saw it is Bryant.

  • Milwaukee missed a lot of open shots.

  • As great as Toronto's defense is, Milwaukee had a lot of open shots.

  • Golden state a missing no shot.

  • I'll take you back to Game three of the Finals last year in Cleveland.

  • So the last time they started a Siri's with their first win to start the series.

  • But their first road game, honest in the finals stuff, went three of 16 in that game.

  • Yeah, Clay went four of 11.

  • They had a game where they both were off.

  • He was in a hostile arena.

  • Pressure, all that stuff.

  • Now they were heading the Siri's.

  • They weren't feeling too much pressure, but it was a hostile arena.

  • Governor ran.

  • They had Kevin Durant to go for 37th right, okay, and crushed the Cavs spirits.

  • Basically, the thing is, if Steph has a bad game tonight, and I know that it feels like Steph hasn't had a bad shooting game in six weeks because they had, he kinda hasn't.

  • But if Steph has a bad game, they don't have the safety net anymore.

  • And while I admit stuff could come out tonight to hit 11 threes and they could blow him off the court, it's just a likely that he could go three of 16 again, and they don't have that safety that's that's why without Durant without Kawai having to work as hard on defense because Durant's on the court, this is their window.

  • Apply the pressure for before, before Max charms, and I would ask you to be very careful about your work.

  • Brian Winters.

  • It's one thing to sit up there and say it's possible, but you use the words very likely.

  • Just Aziz.

  • Likely as it is for him to explode, is is likely for him to go three of 60.

  • It's not as likely for him to go three for 60.

  • Not has like, but I give in the 1st 6 games the playoffs.

  • Steph shot the ball very poorly.

  • He had a halfway at zero points and he had any halfway and 33.

  • What you getting?

  • That's why I gotta watch to find out.

  • I have yet to see Steph Curry went, and and this goes for a lot of the Warriors lead scorers, right?

  • Like Steph and I think the same thing about Cady when they haven't had the overwhelming odds in their favor.

  • I have yet to see big time clutch performances when the team has needed it most.

  • That's why they lost the Cleveland.

  • They surely would have lost the Cleveland in the first go round.

  • Two had LeBron second best player not been Matthew DellaVedova Steph as the leader of a team in an even odds kind of final.

  • Siri's has yet to prove the thing that you're talking about.

  • Stephen A.

  • Brian I challenge you.

  • Has Steph Curry been the best version of himself in any finals?

  • No, in any finals.

  • He's had moments in games where he's been the best version of himself, but for the whole Siri's, he has not yet.

  • But I think he's absolutely capable in that second half that he had in Houston, where he put up 33.

Stephen a stake in the Dubs and six Max is taking Toronto and six Toronto in six.
