The Golden State Warriors, who succeeded in counterattacking in the third game, are driving momentum and aiming for a tie in the series in the fourth game.
Golden State, who started Game 3 amidst the bad news of Draymond Green’s (32, 198cm) suspension disciplinary action, Kevon Rooney (27, 206cm) recorded a career high of 20 rebounds (9 offensive rebounds) and 9 assists as an X factor. They roared and won 114-97 over Sacramento. Rooney, who completely filled the void in Green, said after the game, “We know how to react when Green is not on the court. In fact, this has happened many times before, and we have wisely dealt with it. I was counting on him to make up for it. I’m just happy to see him on the court again in the next game.” Coach Steve Kerr also expressed satisfaction with Rooney’s performance, saying, “This is Rooney’s true face. What kind of player he is, haven’t we seen him on the playoff stage for the past few years?”
Along with this, Golden State’s ace Stephen Curry (34, 190cm) scored 36 points (FG 48%), including 6 3-pointers, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 block shot, while making a turnaround. Many people are focusing their attention on whether Green, who missed out, and Gary Payton II (30, 190cm) will be able to win the 4th game and return the series to the starting point. (*For reference, Golden State is PO standard. , when Curry scored 35 points or more, he recorded an overwhelming win rate of 19-2.)
Likewise, the Atlanta Hawks, who gave up the initiative at the beginning of the series with two consecutive away losses, succeeded in counterattacking at home in the third game. Ace Trae Young (24, 185cm), who was sluggish with only 35% field goal rate in the first and second games, started the third game and led the team victory by announcing a revival with 32 points (FG 54.5%), 6 rebounds, 9 assists and 2 blocked shots. Backcourt partner Deyonte Murray (26, 193cm) also contributed to the team’s victory, recording 25 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. .
On the other hand,스포츠토토 the Boston Celtics, who recorded their first loss in the series on the 24th, will not be able to participate due to a minor back injury in Marcus Smart (29, 190cm), a key defensive force, in the fourth game on the 24th. Smart played a big role in both the offense and defense with 24 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists and 3 steals in the 3rd game, but apart from this, after breaking through in the middle of the 4th quarter, he suffered a shock in the back during the landing process, and after that, scenes of feeling uncomfortable with each play were captured.
In addition to this, the Denver Nuggets, who have won 3 consecutive wins, will challenge the sweep in the game on the 24th (hereinafter Korean time). Denver overpowered Minnesota in all 1, 2 and 3 games, winning the series 3 times in a row without any crisis. Jamal Murray (26, 190cm) regained his firepower during the bubble era, and along with this, Michael Porter Jr. (24, 208cm), an average of 33.1 minutes in 3 games, 19.7 points (FG 53.7%), 8.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 3P 50% (3.3 average) I wonder how far the collaboration between Murray and Porter Jr., who are firmly behind Nicola Jokic (28, 211cm), will take Denver up.
