I may be dating myself here: but have you ever seen Teen Wolf?
Once the main character starts to play basketball as teen wolf, the team wins, a lot. In typical Hollywood fashion, after beating up some dude at a dance, the main character decides that he doesn't want to be the wolf anymore.At the basketball final,he decides to play the game as himself and they go onto win the game - through team work.
Still with me?
This isn't a battle between Steph and Westbrook. This is about the better team. So tonight, be patient. Trust our players to make good plays. But above all else, remember that the whole Strength in Numbers thing isn't just the world's cheesiest catch phrase - it really is indicative of the priorities in how Kerr runs the team. Even without KD, I'd argue that the Warriors are still the better team.
Steph Curry and the Warriors are going through changes right now, as they adjust to life without Durant. Much like the Warriors in general, Curry is starting to find his way over the past three games. According to the NBA preview:
Curry averaged 27.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game in just 31.9 minutes per contest...Curry shot 49.0 percent from the field, 46.4 percent from three-point range and a perfect 100 percent from the free-throw line
