Warriors Win Again At Home, Beating Utah; Now Down 1-2

The Warriors had a great, in your face, win 125-105, after two tough losses in Utah, especially after basically giving away game 2 to Utah, a game they would have won with just one made free throw out of three misses in the final minute or so. After being so close to winning in Utah, one couldn't help but feel that the Warriors would take it to them playing at home, though I could see some feel that such a loss could demoralize a team.

But basically playing them to a standstill for two games in a row on their home court, in a sport build on home court advantage, had to give the Warrior players the confidence that they could take care of things at home. The only question was executing and doing it. And they did, in spades.

Now they have to do it again at home and tie up the series. As before, one game at a time, but if they can bum rush them again in game 4, and beat them soundly, that should give them enough momentum to finally win in Utah in game 5 and take care of things in game 6 at home. Make it so, Golden Ones.

The more I think about it, the more I think the Warriors should win in 6. They should win game 4 at home, they have been on a roll at home and totally feed on the crowd, I don't think that there's been any really close games at home in the playoffs yet.

Game 5, they will feed off the emotions and confidence of blowing out Utah at home while playing the Jazz close in Utah in games 1 and 2, and take it to them in game 5 and win that game as well.

Then back to game 6 where they again play at home and should close it out.
