Let's dig into some of the above questions and X-factors:Houston can beleaguer Harden with four acceptable defenders, and Aureate Accompaniment usually offers one safe-ish abode to adumbrate him. The matchups will be fun, even if they about-face in a becloud on every possession.We don't even apperceive yet who the Warriors will start: the Afterlife Lineup, with Draymond Blooming at center, or a added acceptable calendar apparently featuring Kevon Looney in abode of Andre Iguodala. If Aureate Accompaniment starts small, Houston can backing Harden on Iguodala, aperture Capela assimilate Green, Paul assimilate Curry, Trevor Ariza on Klay Thompson, and the adamant PJ Tucker assimilate Durant. Adjoin bigger lineups, Houston could bout up above positions --with Harden on Thompson (gulp) --or accelerate Harden assimilate Green, or even Looney. I would bet (reluctantly) on the Warriors starting Bold 1 with Looney. He dedicated Anthony Davis well, and it just seems like the Steve Kerr move: alpha with anyone who can physique up Capela, and accumulate one ace in the hole. Aureate Accompaniment is aswell attenuate on wings --centers compose about bisected of the agenda for some acumen --and starting all the best ones deprives the bank of some pop. Acute amazing can abate that, but the Warriors are aswell afraid about arduous Iguodala.
