I remember seeing the way Hayward went up against Kobe (on defense and offense) in his first or second year and coming away like “Damn! He thinks he’s just as good as him! If he keeps that up, he’s going to be special.”
If we get home court advantage, we’re getting past the Clippers and we’ll probably face the Warriors in round 2 and I like our chances. Last time we met them in the playoffs we squashed their cute little ‘We believe!’ team. Don’t think there’s not a chance that revenge for that somehow becomes extra motivation for Golden State. I love it! Utah is so ready for playoff basketball! Bring it on!
I want to see Shea add another couple stanzas to this beautiful work in progress. We’ll done!
