After San Antonio got swept in the Western Conference Finals by Golden State, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich offered up some high praise for the Warriors. Popovich told reporters that the star-studded Warriors were a lot more than just their supertsars as Golden State essentially excels in all aspects of the game. That is the main reason why the Spurs were thoroughly outmatched and got swept. The same goes for the Jazz and Blazers, who also got swept by the Warriors in the early rounds of the playoffs.
Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, however, has a different take on the Warriors.
Asked by reporters on Wednesday if Lue has already started planning for the Warriors since Cleveland is just one win away from facing Golden State in the Finals for the third straight year, the Cavs coach scoffed at the idea. Lue said he was concentrating on the Celtics, since they are harder to game plan than the Warriors.
