The games have me a little perplexed.  In the Western Conference, it seems Steph, Klay, Draymond, et al. have the situation well in hand.  But they do have to show up in Dallas tomorrow (Sunday) and face Luka et al.  And Luka is a threat.

In the Eastern Conference, it looks like a war of attrition. Players keep coming and going due to injuries or the fear of injuries (the latest being Mr. Butler).  As The Texas Chain Saw Massacre inquired, who will survive and what will be left of them?

So to the surprise of the pundits, the Celtics displayed real grit and ground out a win in game one.  Draymond did not get a technical.  The Warriors seemed to collapse in the fourth period.  Horford and Brown basically had career games while Tatum was missing.  Can they do it again?  I assume Kerr is going to regroup and emphasize defense for game two.  If that works, it's game on.  If the Warriors can't win one of two at home, this is a short series.

Draymond got his first technical.  The Warriors won handily playing better defense.  So now 538 has the Celts with an 82% chance of winning the series.  Really?

Now 538 has the Celts at 88% favorites.  It is beginning to look like the Warriors have to play a near perfect game to beat Boston.  The Celtics' length advantage was definitely apparent in Game 3.
