How competitive will the Warriors be next season?
Game 6 was the final game at Oracle Arena in Oakland, an emotional and bittersweet occasion. The Warriors entered Game 6 without Kevin Durant, who tore his Achilles tendon — the worst injury in basketball — on Monday. And then, in the third quarter, they lost Klay Thompson to a knee injury that was later confirmed to be a torn ACL. The Toronto Raptors are worthy champions. Where does the team rate for next season and what can GM Bob Myers do to get the Warriors to the playoffs?

Can the Warriors come back from a 3-game deficit to the Raptors?
Can the Golden State Warriors get it back soon? With the Warriors facing a 3-1 series deficit to the Toronto Raptors, a few outcomes are in store should the Warriors fail to overcome this obstacle just as they did to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2016 Western Conference Finals. The Raptors have looked better than the Warriors in nearly every aspect of the sport through four games of these Finals. And after their 105-92 win in Game 4 Friday, they’re up 3-1. The Warriors look like a shell of the team they once were — the team that they have purported themselves to be all season.

Kurtenbach and Medina talk Kevin Durant, Pascal Siakam, DeMarcus Cousins and Warriors injuries
The Warriors labored loss to the Toronto Raptors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals offered the latest evidence to a topic that should have been irrefutable even during the Warriors’ recent success without him. The Warriors are worse without Kevin Durant, who missed his sixth consecutive playoff game because of a strained right calf. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for a 16-of-35 clip from the field. Green’s fifth triple double of the postseason in points (10), rebounds (10) and assists (10) became diminished with six turnovers and five fouls. The Warriors had less of an answer for Toronto forward Pascal Siakam (32 points on 14-of-17 shooting) than Kawhi Leonard (23 points on 5-of-14 shooting). And the Warriors collected 27 fouls, committed 17 turnovers and conceded 17 points in transition.

Draymond Green takes it to another level in Game 3 win over Blazers
The Warriors found another gear for the third and fourth quarters of the all-important game at Moda Center in Portland. Draymond Green, Steph Curry, and Klay Thompson — who have effectively played six seasons worth of ball (if not more) in the span of the last five campaigns — all played more than 75 percent of the available second-half minutes of Game 3. They were pushed. When the Warriors entered the second half trailing again by double digits, Green’s energy and focus on both ends of the court dragged them back into the game.

You need defense to win and Warriors' Draymond Green is the best
Andre Iguodala may have stolen the game and the show in Golden State Warriors’ Game 2 win against Portland Trail Blazers. But beat writers Dieter Kurtenbach and Mark Medina instead dissect the Warriors defensive performance in Game 2 against the Blazers to crush a notion of Draymond Green as the most overrated player in the NBA. Defensive tactics don’t evolve as fast as offensive tactics, but ever since the Warriors started switching everything with Draymond Green-at-center lineups in Kerr’s first year as head coach, 2014-15, we’ve seen nearly every team in the league pick up the scheme.

Is this Warriors-Blazers series already over?
What would have happened if the Warriors actually tried Tuesday? In Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals Tuesday, Golden State turned in what was effectively a lax, regular-season effort. They still beat the Portland Trail Blazers by 22 points. What would have gone down had the Warriors played more than five, maybe 10 minutes of focused, playoff-caliber basketball? Would they have won by 30? What about 40? The Blazers just don’t have the players to match up with Golden State — even without Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins in the fold. On top of that, they don’t have the schemes to get the most out of the guys they have. Within the first few possessions of Game 1, it was clear that the Warriors would be able to coast to victory.

The Warriors core four end the Rockets postseason
After the Warriors prevailed with a 118-113 Game 6 win over Houston to close out the Western Conference semifinals, the Warriors showed this win meant much more than those forgettable ones in January. They yelled. They hugged. They expressed relief.This one felt good, Draymond Green said. I’m not going to go home and sugar coat it. This one felt amazing.' So amazing that Warriors coach Steve Kerr considered this 'one of the most satisfying victories we had' amid three NBA title runs in four years. So amazing that Curry said he feels 'damn proud of our team.'
