Are LeBron James and Kevin Love really buds or not? Can’t they get it together and beat the King’s former team? Let’s keep it 100: it shouldn’t be that hard. Yet the Cavs lost in Miami the last time these two squads met.
Maybe there’s a little intrigue there but not as much as there is with the two Golden State games this week on Sling TV.
The Warriors travel to L.A. to face the Clippers on Tuesday, and while Golden State sports the best record in the league, L.A. has been on a roll recently, winning eight of its last 10 as of this writing.
Oh, but that might sound a little too hopeful because guess what? The Warriors have won nine in a row. Fancy that.
On Thursday, Golden State, which has locked the top seed in the West, hosts Phoenix, which still has a playoff spot within reach.
Do either of the Warriors’s opponents stand a chance? (Does anyone in the league stand a chance?) Not if Coach Steve Kerr is right when he said: “I still think we can get better. I really do.”
That’s a scary proposition for the entire NBA.
“So I’m actually happy to have a couple more weeks to keep honing our game and just let this thing continue to grow,” Kerr said. “These guys really have a great feel for one another and what we’re trying to accomplish.”
