Cats In The NBA: Golden State At OKC Edition


And then there were three. Three wins remain to decide the Western Conference champion as Game Three tips off tonight with the series locked up 1-1. Oklahoma City shocked the NBA by taking game one with a fourth quarter comeback. Game Two was a return to form for the Warriors as they buried the Thunder with a barrage from beyond the arc. What will game three hold? Pure entertainment:

The Warriors played in Oklahoma just once during the regular season and what went down was probably the NBA game of the year. The two teams traded jabs for four quarters and overtime when Steph Curry decided to pull up from half court and end it. It was a game that made fans hope to see the two teams meet at some point in the playoffs to face off in a seven game series. Well we got our wish.

For the former Cats in the game, Enes Kanter and Nazr Mohammed, game 3 is a mixed story. Nazr Mohammed, the semi-retired veteran, has yet to log any time in the series and against the small line-ups of the Warriors that likely will not change. For Enes, the istan-bull has made the most of his limited minutes against the Warriors. When Golden State gets into their offensive rhythm it can be hard to play someone as big and immobile as Enes. But if he can defend and rebound as he did in Game 1 the Thunder turn their weaknesses into an advantage. I just hope they win so Kanter can continue to roast Skip Bayless.

Game Three tips off at 8 p.m. on TNT.

    I’m sure about 80-90% of Cat Fans could care less about the NBA, and I admit the season is entirely too long. But anyone watching these Conference Finals games, especially this one so far tonight, must admit it is incredible basketball. The game has changed so much in recent years to the small-ball game with constant motion and shooters at nearly every position. Good stuff.
    On a side note, you must wonder how college guys coming into the pros have any chance to play if they cannot hit an open jump shot.
