Game 1 predictions:

  • Bogut goes for a double-double, to help the Warriors compete on the boards
  • Curry and Thompson do their thing from three point range, to keep this game close
  • The Warriors make some really costly, untimely turnovers.

Final outcome: I really do think this is the game for the Warriors to steal, but walking into someone else's building to steal Game 1 is just hard to do. I'm expecting Denver to win this one by 6, but not conceding the Warriors loss either.
