    Yes.

    Would you prefer I said one of the most lethal scorers in the NBA?

    The key point is KD should be getting more touches and shots at the end of these games.

    He got plenty of touches at the end of Game 4 and uncharacteristic late game turnovers by Golden State last night is probably why he didn’t get more touches last night. I think Golden State needs to do more of what got them successful, moving the ball, instead of so many ISO plays. When KD and Steph get the ball they keep going one on one. They need less of that and more of everyone touching the ball.

    Good article about Kerr and the challenges the Rockets are putting in front of the Warriors.

    When they move the ball they are unbeatable. ISO is thier Achilles heal, they are lethal uncontested...not so much, when being challenged.

    KD and Steph can score on anyone contested or uncontested. That isn’t what makes Golden State great though. They need to stick to their original formula.

    KD can but the times I've watched Steph he has struggled more this year than in years past, especially driving and putting up contested shots. Of course his numbers look good, that's just my take from the games I've watched.

    But I digress, they should stick to their original formula.

    Read that article I posted. It talks about how the Rockets are making it difficult for them to stick to their original formula. Basically, the Rockets are switching everything on defense which makes it difficult to get movement in the offense and feeds isolation play.

    We’re clearly not watching the same Steph.

    Agreed! When the ball doesn't move, it's hard for other players to contribute. That's what I been screaming all these years when people cry LeBron needs more help. His offenses are usually iso ball and makes it hard for others to truly get in rhythm. Teams with ball movement are the ones who do the best. Which until this series is what the Warriors were great at.
