Podcast: As the Warriors dominate the first round, we brazenly look ahead to Round 2

With and without Durant, the Golden State Warriors have pounded the Portland Trailblazers. We discuss the series, as well as look ahead to potential 2nd round foes the LA Clippers, and we talk about whether it's ok for fans to leave the arena early.

NBA: Playoffs-Portland Trail Blazers at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Last year around this very same time, Golden State of Mindcast feverishly roasted the LA Clippers and salivated at the Warriors dismantling them in the next round of the playoffs. During that very recording, Chris Paul broke a bone in his hand and derailed the Clippers' playoff run.

Fast forward to last night, when we got carried away with yet another anti-Clippers roastfest, and, lo-and-behold, what happened? Blake Griffin injures his toe and is out for the remainder of the playoffs.

This is not our fault! We are not witches! We did not curse Griffin and the Clippers, nor would we ever wish injury upon anyone! We apologize if the podcast seems tasteless in light of the news.
