The Golden State Warriors are now looking at a 3-2 deficit in this series after their loss on Tuesday night. Their only hope of staying alive in the 2014 NBA Playoffs is to win two games in a row. Luckily for Dubnation, the Warriors are returning to Oracle Arena for Game 6.
One key aspect the Warriors must target is Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan, who had a monster night in Game 5. The Clipper big brought his “A” game and dominated with 25 points and 18 rebounds. If the Warriors want to keep the postseason run going, they must be able to keep Jordan off the boards.
The Hack-A-Jordan technique was in full effect for Game 5, and Coach Mark Jackson will not hesitate implement that method again, especially with a hostile environment in Oakland.
Draymond Green started in his second game in a row for the Warriors and played well against Blake Griffin. Green looks like he has cemented himself in the starting lineup for the rest of this series.
GSW: Andrew Bogut (fractured rib) and Festus Ezeli (recovery from right knee surgery) are out.
