The Golden State Warriors have eradicated their alleged biggest competition in the Western Conference. The final game of the series against the Houston Rockets was a yet another flex of the Dubs’ slogan: “Strength In Numbers”.
I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure out which Warrior was most wondrous, but I gotta confess: this one’s just too darn close to call.
I’m gonna need your help one more time, Dub Nation: WHO WAS THE WARRIORS WONDER IN THE GAME 6 ELIMINATION OF THOSE JABRONIS FROM HOUSTON?
Stephen Curry 33 points/ 5 rebs/ 4 assists
Curry had more fouls than than points and assists combined after the first half in Houston last night....because he had 0 points. I can’t believe the Rockets lost after Curry spotted them a 24 minute head start.
Curry activated “Unanimous” mode in the second half and never looked back.

Klay Thompson 27 points/ 7 made threes
While Curry was not balling out in the first two quarters, his fellow Splash Brother picked up the slack both offensively and defensively, styming James Harden.

Klay Thompson's first half: 21 points (no other Warrior w/more than 8).
Curry's plus/minus: 0
Thompson's plus/minus: -4
Why it's wise to be careful with numbers.

He also sealed the game with a vicious dagger, because it was a Game 6 and that’s what Game 6 Klay does, baby!

Andre Iguodala 17 points/ 5 made threes/ 5 steals
Wow, sure was nice having Iguodala for this go-round with Houston.
If Andre Iguodala doesn't make the Basketball Hall of Fame after what he's done delivering performance after performance like tonight's, they should just shut the place down. Amazing player.— Carl Steward (@stewardsfolly) May 11, 2019
Andre Iguodala is as professional as it comes: “I don’t really get too high anymore off games. I’m good. I’m just looking forward to the flight to relax.” (He had 17 points and 5 steals) pic.twitter.com/l69Ce9dHZt— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) May 11, 2019
Draymond Green 8 points/ 10 rebs/ 7 assists
Shout out to everybody who jumped on the “Trade Draymond” bandwagon after he cursed out Kevin Durant last fall. Green was the pounding heartbeat of the champs last night, putting his fingerprints all over this game both defensively and offensively.
His work with Curry as a recipient of the high pick-and-roll completely dismantled Houston’s defense in crunch time last night.
Warriors ran Curry/Green PnR 10 times in the 4th. Scored on 8 of those, for 19 points. Only misses were the oop to Looney and Draymond possibly fouled by Capela at the rim.— Nate Duncan (@NateDuncanNBA) May 11, 2019

Kevon Looney 14 points/ 5 rebs
I picked a heck of a time to write a “Looney is the X-Factor” piece, eh? This young monster did everything the Warriors needed him to do in a tense elimination game on the road.

Shaun Livingston 11 points/ 1 poster dunk
Mr. Livingston, I presume? He shook off the knee issues to help bury the Rockets alive. This dunk HAD to be satisfying for our beloved backup guard who is probably going to retire after this season.
Which Warrior was most wondrous in the burial of the Rockets?
