i could tell by about the middle of the third quarter that the warriors were slowing down. whenever i see a couple airballed three pointers (i have lots of experience with this), it’s a sign that you’re tired and don’t have your legs under you. when utah comes at you in the post with boozer, okur, ak47, millsap and harpring, you don’t have much of a prayer. those guys are big and don’t have to run much in sloan’s slowdown halfcourt offense.
it was a great run, though, and i’m excited to see what they can do next year as long as everyone comes back.
