The Golden State Warriors aim to advance to the second round at their home, the Chase Center, on the 25th (Korean time).
Golden State’s Splash Duo scored in Game 5 and Draymond Green’s (33, 198cm) scored exploded, making the series 3-2 by winning 3 games in a row. Stephen Curry (35, 188 cn) threw 10 3-point field goals in the 5th game, making only 2 successful, and his out-of-field shots were not as good as usual. However, on this day, the field goal success rate reached 48 (12/25)%, and he scored 31 points through attacking the paint zone and playing mid-range games. Curry recorded an average of 33.0 points (48.6% FG), 4.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 39.4% (average 4.3 success) of 3-pointers over the past 3 games, showing off his ace-like appearance without regret. There was nothing better for Golden State as the green, which averaged only 8.5 points, was perfectly supported by 21 points. 크크크벳
It’s not just Golden State looking to end the series on this day. The Los Angeles Lakers also suffered a blow in the 5th game away, but still have a series advantage. In order for the Lakers to finish the series at home, LeBron James (38, 206cm) and Anthony Davis (29, 208cm) need to play one-two punches. In the last 5 games, Davis struggled with 31 points and 19 rebounds, but James, on the other hand, was sluggish than usual, with a field goal rate of 29.4% and only 15 points. There must have been a physical problem here. After the 5th game, James predicted a rebound with a short and bold phrase, “I will do better in the 6th game.”
On the other hand, the key point to watch in this series is who catches the early flow. During the actual 5th game, the team that led the 1st quarter in all 5 games took the game to the end. Therefore, it seems that both teams will have to risk life and death in the first quarter.
