SALA SA INIT ... SALA SA LAMIG: Ang Maalamat na Trio ng Golden State Warriors


PhilBoxing.com




Siyam na taon ag nakalilipas, ng Golden State Warriors Trio nina Steph Curry, Klay Thompson at Draymond Greeen ay dumayo sa Denver noong isang malamig na gabi nang Abril at talunin ang Nuggets sa Game 2 ng Western Conference first-round series.

Matapos ang serye, nagpahayag si Curry na animo isang propeta: “We’re a resilient team!”

Hindi pa marahil natanto ng Warriors guard kung gaano katama ang kanyang sinabi. Na ang mga ito ay hindi bukam-bibig lamang.

Ang Warriors ay nakapasok sa NBA playoffs ng 27 beses noong siyam na season na iyon. At nanalo sila ng kahit isang laro sa siyam na road games noong pagkakataong iyon. Na hindi pa napapantayan sa kasayhsayann ng NBA.

Subalit posible ring mapagtalunan na wala sa mga road wins na iyon ng Curry-Thompson-Green era ay mas mas tatalo sa huling 107-97 panalo ng mga bata ni soach Steve Kerr laban sa Boston Celtics sa Game 4 ng kanilang kasalukuyang best-of-seven Finals series para sa kampeonato noong Biyernes ng gabi sa TD Garden sa Boston.

Tabla ang serye noon sa 2-2 at kung nagwagi sana ang Celtics ay lalapit sana sila sa isang panalo na lamang para makamit ang koronang hindi na nalasap sa loob ng kuang-kulang na isang dekada.

Noong nakaraang Lunes sana nila nalasap ito sa Chase Center sa San Francisco kung saan ay nahawakan ng Warriors ang pangunguna sa serye, 3-2.

Na kung hindi sana napalawig ng Wrrriors ang kanilang win road series streak, ang Celtics ang sana’y nasa bingit na ng kanilang pang ika-18 kampeonato mula noong sila’y makoronahan sa kaauna-unahang pagkakataon noong 1957.

Ang nangyari, ang Golden State ang ngayon, tungo sa Game 6 ay umusad sa isang panalo na lamang para masugkjit ang kanilang pang-apat na titulo mula noong 2015 at pang anim mula noong 1947.

“What a gut-check win!," bulalas ni Thompson matapos ang panalo na aniya’y nagpa-alaala sa kanya nang nangyari noong 2015 Finals kung kailan ang Cleveand Cavs ay lamang sa Warriors, 2-1, pero nakakuha pa rin ng paraan para talunin ang Cavs at mabingwit ang korona makaraanang anim na laro.

“You have a group of guys who are going to be in the Hall of Fame someday: Steph, Klay, Draymond,” wika ni Warriors coach Kerr.

“These guys are the constant. They have been here together throughout that span. So, they are not only gifted but they are incredibly competitive, and that’s what it takes to win on the road. You have to summon that kind of will and intensity and passion, and those guys have that.”

Isipin na lamang na 48 na oras bago ang Game 4, ay hindi pa malaman kung makalalaro si Curry na noong Game 3 ay napilay ang kaliwang paa, kapareho ng pinsalang nakamit niya sa regular season.

Sa kabila nito, sinilaban ni Curry ang ring sa kanyang 43 puntos na performance, 10 rebounds at apat nqa assist.

“This was nearly a must-win game, and to go out there and shoot as efficiently as he did, and grab 10 rebounds and they were attacking him on defense ... Steph played incredible,” papuri ni Thompson sa kakambal niya bilang “Splash Brothers” ng koponan.

Ang 43 puntos na nagawa ni Steph ay pangalawang pinakamataas niya kumpara sa 44 puntos niya laban sa San Antonio Spurs noong 2013 na ngayon ay halos limot na,

“He wasn’t letting us lose,” obserbasyon ni Green. “That’s just what it boils down to. ... He was going to come out with that type of fire, and he did.”

Tulad ni Curry, ang Warriors, kasama sina Andrew Wiggins at rookie Jordan Poole, ay hinog na at banat na sa laban. At ito ay malalaman natin ngayong araw kung kailan ay idaraos ang game 6 sa Boston.

Kakamtin na kaya ng kopoonan ng Bay Area ang kampeonato o makakabangon pa kaya ang Celtics sa hukay na kinahulugan nila?

Sa tutoo lang si Curry at ang Trio niya kina Thompson at Green ay posible pang matalo sa Game 6 para palawigin ang serye hanggaang Game 7 at talunin ang Celtics upang handugan nang Chase Center, ang bago nilang tahanan bago ang iniwan nila sa Oakland.?

Mas matamis at mas gugustuhin ito ng kanilang fans, kabilang na ang libo-libong Pilipinong naninirahan sa Bay area at karatig na lugar, pero para kay coach Steve at mga Wqrriors, panahon na para maputol ang kanillang apat na taong pagkauhaw sa tagumpay.
