Listen: Lou Williams, Clippers And Kevin Durant discussed on First and Last with Lundberg and Golic, Jr.
"Speed. He keeps you off balance constantly, and as a result you see guys hesitant when they're going to fill blitz at him. Switch when he does get the switch. He gets the bigger defender on skates because he's a his ability to get you back on your heels. Stop on a dime. Shootdown little lean back. So I think. Their inability to contain him is really what steps to table for the entire team. I think that's opens up for mantras Herrell. It's rare you're going to see two players in a series off the bench as dominant as those players have been for the clippers it any series that you're going to watch for me to defensive confusion stood out. And I thought I'll predictable trying to go for quick shots. And that's not their gain wars rat their best when they move at once they felt threatened in the fourth quarter, very predictable with how quick the shot was going to take place. I thought that played into the clippers hands defensely let him off the hook. All right. So you've given us the recipe for the warriors to fix it game. Six Friday right across the street. How do the clipper sustain it? I think the biggest thing that they need to do is continue to put the ball Williams has there was a time here in the fourth quarter. When I was a little bit concerned about what they were trying to accomplish -fensive and Lou Williams didn't touch the ball for four or five possessions stretch that allowed to say where's the title game? And and I didn't like what they were going to let Lou Williams v guy that dictates matters when he's on the floor because Golden State has not really figured out what to do with him. And this is one of the time premier scores. They always seen this league. Obviously, we know he's done off to at his career. But this guy is just a pro at being able to put you back on your heel. So keep the bonus hands they'd come out with intensity. I think the biggest thing you have to do when you play the warriors in a situation. Like this do not allow three point shooters to find rhythm early in the game. Make sure your chest to chest talk on your switches on the guards split actually with and Steph. You don't want those guys the find rhythm early in the game. They put they put the ball. Kevin Durant hands a lot tonight because he was the only guy that going if you're the clippers you'll. Live with that. You don't want all of those guys hot at the same time. And that means starting to game the right way. No open looks early Durant with forty five Thomson curried combined for forty six you say Lou Williams is the premier score isn't Klay Thompson premier defender. He is. I think the warriors one of the things that happens to them because they've got a lot of personnel that they're comfortable switching because they're similar guys. When you look at clay, you look at Kevin Durant. Andrea Dala Draymond green even jumping out and switching they feel confident and personnel packages switching off, but a guy like Lou Williams. I firmly believe if you've got a defender did you primarily want on him? The more you guard throughout the game. The very start to read all of the little rhythm things that he does with the basketball with that start stop. And when he's going to come in released a basketball and little lean back, the more you get to guard, and you do get into a rhythm as a defender as well. And I think sometimes Golden State is much as they switch. Lou Williams has a lot of different guys on that aren't getting into that rhythm defensively. He's almost impossible to contain at that point. But they've got to be much better kneel at the at the point of attack. They've got to be better with containing the basketball, and then the rotations to Herrell in the lane on the slips once they do get the ball. Contain. They just haven't been able to solve that riddle. They little complacent tonight. I really thought they were gonna they thought they were gonna get this game. The clippers had something else on their mind. And now they've got to go figure out a game plan defensively before they get the game six and how to slow down that herald, Lou Williams, pick of all action and will be on the road in L A warriors still lead the series three two. But they've lost the two games at home this series. Second time losing two home games in a single series under Steve Kerr. The other time was in the twenty sixteen finals waiting for whatever comes out of this series is the Houston Rockets bear backup.."
