Not to be too pessimistic about this game but IMHO, it is a matchup nightmare. Their guards pressure the ball all over the court. They play very tight along the perimeter. CJ had a very good game statistically (7 of 11 from the field) but only managed to get 11 shots off and he worked really, really hard for those. Don’t expect many open 3s tonight unless we can penetrate and they overpursue. In the frontcourt, the are bigger, stronger and more experienced. They are technically the best rebounding team I have seen. They anticipate well, establish their position well and attack the basket rather than waiting the ball to come down to them. Hopefully our bigs will learn something tonight.
