The Warriors Vs. The Mavericks: David vs Goliath? No Way!

Posted by

Many see and think that the Warriors versus the Mavericks is another David and Goliath story. But truth be told, I've never doubted the Warriors and there is no surprise how the series turned out. I am not saying that the Mavericks are not a great team, but what I'm pointing out is that the Warriors have the chance to oust the number one seed and end victorious. Here are some of the reasons why:

1. Don Nelson - Don Nelson is a Hall of Fame coach and has won the most games under his belt aside from Lenny Wilkins. Part of his strategy it seems is that the Warriors play as undergdogs. Despite that, he has instilled the confidence in his team and the team would put everything out on the line to succeed and win every game.

2. Athleticism - The Warriors have 4 to 5 players who are 6'8 and 6'9 that are very quick and long. It would be very hard to score with opponents having the speed and tenacity that the Warriors have. It would be difficult to score against such a team on a consistent basis. Even being last on in points during the season, their defensive play showed progress in leaps and bounds during playoffs.

3. Injury Free - Jason Richardson and Baron Davis both had injuries for this season. Being two of the Warrior's best players, it somehow made it difficult for the team without them. With Steven Jackson and Al Harrington to complete the roster, the Warriors is again a force to reckon with.

4. Hot! - Much to the disappointment of the fans, the team did not do so well during the first half of the season. But once the players all got healthy, they tore the place down with their victories. With such momentum moving towards the finals, you should not be wondering anymore why the Warriors are in their element.

5. Baron Davis - if Baron Davis can come into the season without getting injured he sure would be an all- star. In the series against the Mavs, he's brought his A-game to the court and the time the Mav's won was when he was out of commission. If he continues to play the way he is doing now, he will surely lead the team to greater heights.
