Listen: Jason Fitz, Golden State Warriors And Blazers discussed on Izzy and Spain
"Welcome to Spain and fits the podcast. It's a short Spain in fits, but we got a lot to pack in sarahspain. Jason Fitz with you on ESPN radio, the SPN apps, Sirius XM channel eighty. We're taking you into game one of the east finals in the NBA tonight. But before that we gotta talk draft lottery reactions, the jets being a circus, perhaps even more so than we already knew and get you ready for game one and talk about last night's game one two there's so much to get to bits and not enough time. Oh all the nights to be short. It comes under night where we've got too much to get into, but I am interested. I know we gotta get to game one of to what we're leading up to tonight. I am interested to see did anything strike you from last night. Did you have a great reaction from Portland in Golden State because I sort of went away. I thought it was going to go. Yeah. The only thing I would say about last night and. The question being how much do we think this is Representative of how the series is going to go or do we think the blazers will put up more of a fight? A couple of things stood out to me, Twenty-one turnovers for the blazers. A terrible shooting percentage of the worst for a half, I think in, in the postseason so far for them shooting. Thirty six percent in the first half Damian Lillard didn't have a great game. Seth curry was basically ineffective Steph curry when often they realized they need to adjust their defensive strategy against them against him. And probably fatigue. Coming off that Denver series. So for trying to look for reasons why this might be a little bit better series than what we saw. That's all I can get to the other side of me just looks at that stat that the warriors are twenty eight and one with, with Kevin Durant out and Steph Korean in their last twenty nine without him. While the fatigue, I think was absolutely factor no doubt in the game. And the poor shooting showed it, you know, there's also an element of you mentioned yesterday that the Golden State Warriors, have this opportunity to sort of be plugged back in and re-energized. And maybe this is what they needed as strange as it sounds to not have Katie the wakeup call. That's what I felt like I was watching last night was an energized, Golden State team. They look like they were having fun. And it looked like they were just sort of plugged back in with the level of intensity of, like we got this. We know what's going to happen now and it's time to remind the world how great we are. If felt like we were saying that's why it's hard for me to look at while you're right fatigue. I think played huge part of it, and you want to believe that the are going to play better throughout the course of it. I walked away thinking I went into the game thinking Portland might win a game or two in this series. But they don't stand a chance from the series, nothing. I saw last night, changed my mind agreed with that. It's benefits. They're Spain Jason Fitz. We'll get into that series a little bit more in the coming days as we for future games. And again hope we get a little bit of a closer game. It never was completely out of reach, but even when it wasn't eight or nine point game at always felt like the warriors were just going to step back on the gas. And that's pretty much what happened. So game one of Eastern Conference finals tonight, right here on ESPN radio."
