Colin Cowherd: “The Warriors last night provided another example that the Warriors still have their fastball, but the question is how many times do they have it left in this series? Am I supposed to believe that Andrew Wiggins, who played AGGRESSIVELY, will now go to LA and play aggressively again? It’s not his personality. Can I get 20 from Draymond again? Last year in the Finals they gave us two BIG games like last night— FASTBALL, beginning to end. They gave us two of them against Sacramento. Golden State has no answer for the Lakers' size so the only way for the Warriors to win these games, when they out-rebounded the Lakers— i.e. they’ve been hyper-aggressive— offensive rebounds, crashing the boards, defensive rebounds. Going to LA now you’re not going to get that effort probably from a Jordan Poole, a guy off the bench, or a Dante DiVicenzo. You’re going to need Steph again to be great. But the key is you’re going to need Wiggins to be great, and you’re going to need Draymond to be great because Steph will be. I don’t think the Warriors have any answer for the Lakers’ size unless they’re over-the-top aggressive like they were last night, led by Wiggins. Are we watching the last punch of the Warriors [dynasty] before they reboot? The ONLY way for the Warriors to win—Andrew Wiggins, and I predicted he would have a great series, nope he’s had one great game – you’re going to need THAT effort from historically not-aggressive Andrew Wiggins. You’re going to need THAT [last night’s performance] two more times. We know Steph is going to be great, we know the Warriors role players in LA aren’t going to be great, it’s going to come down to Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green, because Klay Thompson…has had a good half. I need Wiggins and I need Draymond to deliver ‘A’ games like last night.” (Full Segment Above)
