One thing to note. The Warriors played the entire season series against the Nuggets without Bogut. Whether Bogut's presence will have a huge impact is interesting.

From memory, there were 2 games against the Nuggets that we let slip that we definitely should have won. They'll have the home court advantage but I think we match up pretty well with them. Faried has had his way with us but I think things will be different in this series with Bogut there to help Lee.

Is Bogut playing? He missed the last few games didn't he? With Bogut, the team should be able to compete with rebounding, maybe even win that, which would be huge, because Denver rebounds very well, close to the best in the nba. Is Faried playing? He injured ankle the last couple of games if I recall. If he's out the first game, golden opportunity to steal won in Denver.

I believe Bogut must play every game and pretty well at least for the team to have a chance of winning. I also think Curry and Klay have to outscore Lawson and Iguodala, as their guards also score alot and hold alot of their fortunes offensively. The biggest difference in the two teams right now looks like bench contribution. Denver gets alot from their bench, with the likes of AMiller, WChandler, McGee and CBrewer. Our bench has to be close to their best, with alot coming from Jack and Landry a must. Ezeli has to fight on both ends, especially defensively and rebounding, same thing with the limited play of AB. The likes of Green and RJ (is he playing right now?) have to do all they can, because anything good from them could make the difference.

The team matches up well with Denver and there is every chance of them winning the series. To be honest, I'd be ecstatic if we even lost in seven, but winning two games would be good, as the team has not won well since the new year and Denver has been amazing the last month and a bit.

Faried is going to suit up, but he's not starting. It is unclear if he's going to play.

Lee is starting off really sloppy. Barnes is using his advantage over Lawson on offense.

Klay is doing well on Lawson. We need to get back on D, though. They are running us out the gym.

Not looking that sharp, but hanging with them so far, I'll take that on the road.
