Golden State Warriors will face a ‘different challenge’ and enter the playoffs with no expectations

SAN FRANCISCO — Golden State WarriorsThey are back in the playoffs after being out of the league for two years. They are not expected to be there, unlike the four previous times they reached the playoffs.

They are likely to get past the first round. They might even make it to the second round. Many believe they could make it to the Western Conference Finals. All of this talk about Warriors is nothing compared to their dynastic era. They were the clear favorites to win it every season.

“Nobody is picking anybody to win, to be out of the West. At least, I don’t think so. Our families are.” Stephen Curry said. “That's okay. It's a matter that you need to win four more games. To do this, we have a specific game plan we're going to follow on Saturday. However, we also understand that each game takes on a life of its own.

Steve Kerr added: “I believe four years ago… I expect to win a championship. However, we are a new team. I have no expectations. I don't have any expectations. It's a lot of fun in many ways. It's not quite as exciting as having one of most amazing rosters, but it's an entirely different challenge and unique.

The Warriors should not be overlooked. They must be able to compete with the teams that are above them in the standings. Phoenix Suns Memphis GrizzliesIt takes a lot to get it right.

This includes the health of the team.

Curry was part of the team's Thursday scrimmage on Thursday, which was an important step in Curry's recovery from a month's absence.

However, the Warriors have yet play a full match with their entire active roster. This means they will have to do something that they've never had to do: determine their playing and rotation combinations in real time during the playoffs.

A roster that doesn't have much playoff experience unlike previous Warriors super teams won't be participating in this game.

You should also look at other rotational players, such as Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins, Gary Payton II Jonathan KumingaEven players like Nemanja Bjelica Otto Porter JrTheir resumes may not be as long.

Thompson shared highlights of the Warriors' 2016-17 season with his younger team members. The Warriors won 73 regular season games and overcame a 3-1 series deficit. Thompson was proud to show them the highlights. Oklahoma City ThunderIn the conference finals, he blew a 3-1 lead. LeBron JamesThe Cleveland CavaliersIn the NBA Finals. Thompson wanted them to see the full range of events possible, even if they are favorites to win.

He also showed them a clip from Kobe Bryant's 2009 NBA finals. Bryant said that he was not happy with his title win because his job wasn’t done.

Thompson believes that having that mindset will make all the difference heading into the postseason.

Thompson stated that he still has the same expectation of winning a championship as before. It's there for us. It's not easy. We have the chance to make a difference and it's a fantastic one.
