I mean, there's so many players playing well for this team. I really believe at Golden State doesn't get credit for how good a defensive team. They are what they didn't third quarter. They just refused to let Damian Lillard C, J McCollum get a good look at the basket. They double team. They trapped him. They harassed him. And then when they turn them over came up with the defensive rebound, Draymond green was leading the fast break as he did all night and just ran right back down to blazers throats seventeen eighteen point lead doesn't matter consecutive games. When you defend the way they defended in the second half. And when you share the ball the way they do and get the contributions. They got from their bench to good. Let's talk about two things.
