Steph Curry is a superstar. Klay Thompson is one of the NBA’s best shooters. David Lee is a two-time All-Star, and Harrison Barnes scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Warriors’ Game 4 win.
But the reality is that the key to the Warriors winning this series is their 7’ foot Australian center, Andrew Bogut.
Tonight’s Game 4 showed the world that the Warriors are significantly better when Bogut was on the floor. The Australian center posted a +17 plus/minus tonight. Going into halftime, the Spurs were holding onto an eight-point lead. Bogut’s playing time was limited in the first half due to foul trouble (3 fouls in the first quarter). However, Bogut played the majority of the second half and overtime, where he grabbed the majority of his 18 rebounds in only 28 minutes of action, and helped the Warriors storm back and eventually win the game.
Now I’m not saying Andrew Bogut is Golden State’s best player because he is not. He may not even be one of their top five best playe...
