Warriors mailbag: What will be the Warriors’ playoff rotation?
HOUSTON — Just like the Warriors, their fans appear more worried about the playoffs than the regular season.
That seems understandable. That is what happens when you cheer for a team that has won three NBA championships in the past four years. That is what happens when you cheer for a team that has Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins.
The Warriors (46-21) are trying their best not to look too far ahead. After all, they have a challenging game against the Oklahoma City Thunder (42-27) on Saturday, which may serve as a preview of either the Western Conference semifinals or Western Conference finals. Dubs fans can look ahead, though. So let’s dive into the mailbag and answer some of those questions.
First, some housekeeping items. I captured how the Warriors beat the Rockets on Wednesday without Kevin Durant. One of the primary reasons involved DeMarcus Cousins having a breakout game. All of which gave the Warriors some bragging rights after the Rockets had some light-hearted trash talk to open the game. As always, Curry and Thompson also had bragging rights after achieving yet another shooting milestone.
