With the sixth-seeded Golden State Warriors surprisingly dominating the third-seeded Denver Nuggets 3-1 in their best of seven series, it’s time to start thinking about a potential Warriors/Spurs matchup in the second round.
I think most San Antonio Spurs fans would rather see Golden State than Denver, but there are definitely pros and cons to meeting the Warriors next round if it shakes out that way for the Spurs in the second round.
After a matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers and having to battle hard down in the post against two talented 7-footers in Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol, the Warriors will come as a relief to the Spurs’ big men. With David Lee out, Golden State really only has one big man that plays legitimate minutes, Andrew Bogut. Bogut is a true center but he may even be on a minutes restriction because he can be fragile at times. Carl Landry is listed as a power forward, but he’s only 6’9”.

Bogut was probably the butt of all jokes in the locker room after the game. Eight days have past and Andrew took notes from Kevin Durant’s Gatorade commercial when he got his revenge on Dwyane Wade. Well...
The Golden State Warriors have traditionally been one of the worst excuses for a sports franchise in the country. This season marks the second time since the 1993-94 season that they have made the playoffs. So when their fans didn’t know what to do with the yellow t-shirt on their seat, who can blame them? But really, a t-shirt shouldn’t need directions.

Mark Jackson had a major dilemma facing him and his team entering Game Two last week in Denver.
David Lee would be out for the remainder of the Playoffs with a torn hip flexor. Andrew Bogut, despite a strong Game One performance, had not put in performances like that one consistently throughout the season. It was unclear what Jackson could get out of him. Sure, Carl Landry can...

Golden State Warriors/Denver Nuggets: Game 5
- I do not expect the Nuggets to come out disheartened. I think they know the magic they have on the floor at home and will not take it for granted tonight.
- For the last three games, it has seemed like the Warriors have dictated the pace and style of play. Early on, the Nuggets seem to be back in their...
