Best way to stop the most explosive offense in the league is to hit it with a tough-nosed defense. Too many teams around the league, Houston and Cleveland to name a couple, try to beat the Warriors at their own game. No team will outscore one of the best offenses the league has ever seen, only defense will do that. The San Antonio Spurs look to continue their defensive domination of the league this season,giving them the best shot at dethroning the Warriors.
2) Kawhi Leonard:
Years ago the question was “who will Kawhi try and stop”, now the question has shifted to “who is going to try and stop Kawhi”. Leonard has taken his game to new heights and has become a complete offensive player. The Warriors have no defensive stoppers that can guard him either and that was evident before he re-aggravated his ankle injury in the Western Conference Finals. Even Durant can'y keep up with the star and he also has the most trouble scoring against him in games--truly a win-win for Spurs.
1) Warrior Organization:
The Warrior organization is always very vocal and very opinionated, from coaches, staff, and even the front office. Despite this you never hear them throw shots at the Spurs, you always hear them talk highly of the organization. It is because they know what the Spurs are capable of, Steve Kerr definitely knows. Draymond Green when asked what team presents the toughest challenge for Warriors he recently said “I just don’t think you can put anyone above San Antonio...I always think San Antonio.”
