Neither the Bucks or the Raptors will stop the Warriors from winning the Championship this year. I would love to say otherwise, but I’m done betting against this team. This team is going to their fifth straight Finals, which has only been done by one other franchise (Boston Celtics). Let me tell you why the Warriors will win the NBA Finals.

First of all, It doesn’t,t matter if Durant is out for the remainder of the Playoffs. The Warriors have enough firepower to score without him on the floor. Yes, more players have to step up for the Warriors, but Curry, Thompson, and Green are more than capable of handling the pressure. In the last 32 games where the Warriors played without Durant, their record is 31-1.
Which brings me to my next point. Draymond Green. Draymond Green is hated by many fans of opposing teams, but the man can do everything. He knows when to shoot the ball, when to make the right type of pass, and when to roll to the hoop. He also may have played the best game of his career in game 4 against the Blazers. Green is also an elite defender. He’s been named to the All-Defensive team five times including this season.

The last point I’ll make is that the Warriors are never out of any game. You’re up by 10 points? That’s cute, Steph will hit two consecutive threes to get within 4. You understand what I’m saying if you ever watched the Warriors play. This team never gives up (especially in the Playoffs) because they have confidence they survive being down by a lot. You have guys like Curry, Thompson, and Green, who now have now won 3 NBA Championships. They have been in almost every situation that is possible and have seen everything a team could throw at them. You aren’t surprising this Warriors group and that is why they will win the NBA Finals.
