Warriors Look to Move Forward

For the past few seasons, the Golden State Warriors have continued to be one of the most dominant teams in the NBA. Over these few seasons, the Warriors have changed the way that basketball has been played and they have broken many records. The team has ended up winning two of the past few championships and again looked as if they could compete for the NBA title in 2018.

While the Warriors looked like the favorite to win the title this year, they had some more struggles than they had over the past few years. During the season, the Warriors had to deal with a lot of injuries from some key players and they were unable to win 60 games, which is something they were easily able to accomplish the past few years. While they did not look as solid this year, they still are the number 2 overall seed in the Western Conference and could still advance far in the playoffs.

The team's bid to take another step towards the NBA Finals another big step this past week as a continue to do well on the first round of the playoffs. At the start of the playoffs, many people considered the Warriors to have a very challenging first-round matchup. They were going to face the San Antonio Spurs, who are well known for being a great playoff team. To make matters worse, the Warriors were continuing to struggle from injuries to some key players.

While the Warriors are not at full strength, they still appear to be good enough to advance in the playoffs. This past week, they were able to show that they are still one of the best teams in the league as they took a commanding 3-0 lead on the Spurs (https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2018/4/19/17254670/spurs-warriors-2018-time...). Furthermore, the Warriors have looked dominant in all three games and could be primed as they start to look forward to the next round.

As good as Golden State has looked, another reason for their success has been recent turmoil in San Antonio. The Spurs are also struggling with the loss of Kawhi Leonard, who is considered one of the best players in the league. At the same time, there seems to be a lot of locker room issues and off the court problems that could be impacting them on the court. At this point, it seems inevitable that Golden State will advance to the next round.
