The Golden State Warriors are painfully close to making the Western Conference Finals for the first time in years.
They secured yet another victory on Monday night, winning 101-98 in Game 4 and taking a 3-1 lead.
You don’ have to be an NBA expert to know that coming back from a deficit like that is incredibly hard.
There is a great chance that the next game could be the last in this series.
But Warriors star Klay Thompson doesn’t think it’ll be a walk in the park.
Klay Thompson on Game 5 "Wednesday's going to be the hardest one yet"
— Evan Barnes〽️ (@evan_b) May 10, 2022
Speaking of Wednesday’s Game 5, Thompson said, “Wednesday’s going to be the hardest one yet.”
Thompson is smart to assume the next one is going to be a true battle because the Grizzlies won’t go without a fight.
End Of The Road?
Game 5 will be in Memphis, which means that the Warriors will try to close out the series in a harsh atmosphere.
The crowd will be rooting against the Warriors and their reactions will be wild, loud, and non-stop.
More than that, the Grizzlies will be playing as if their season depends on it.
That’s because their season does depend on it.
Throughout the year, Memphis has been one of the most competitive teams in the entire league.
Yes, they have experienced a few missteps lately but they are still a very strong team.
They have stepped up multiple times this season and they will need to do it again on Wednesday.
Thompson and his Warriors might be a tad bit worried because of the past.
Everyone remembers when they were up 3-1 over the Cleveland Cavaliers only to give up that lead and eventually lose the Finals.
They are hoping that history doesn’t repeat itself.
