It is a team exclusively focused on showcasing the talents of one player and hoping that player can overpower the opposing team's five-man defensive front.
They enter Game 3 with a 14-0 postseason record, two wins from erasing the memory of last year's painful collapse against the Cavaliers in the Finals and going undefeated throughout the entire playoffs. Having played almost as many minutes as starting center Zaza Pachulia, McGee has been seamlessly incorporated into the system by interim head coach Mike Brown and has developed into a key player off the bench. There was the thought that Kevin Durant joining the Warriors would make the season a fait accompli.
If he can keep the stellar play during the third and fourth quarter, then the Cavaliers will be in a much better position to win.
But Curry's health can not be underestimated. One year after bad wheels undermined the mind-blowing agility that sets him apart, those physical gifts are on full display.

They're a reminder that the mighty Warriors are fine being goobers.
Dude's a perennial All-Star who always played hard but he's playing much harder with a Warriors team that would have been favored to win the 2017 title even had he not signed in the offseason. "You see a competitive level of where like it hasn't been matched". I can get my guys ready, get myself ready. Last year, it wasn't even close.
Coquilla also said that the Cavs' homecourt advantage will just lessen the margin but won't be able to save them from an upcoming 0-3 deficit. Pat McCaw and Damian Jones are rookies.
But the most important new member, the team's new superstar, Durant, can identify with what the Warriors went through.
Leads are history, right. For the Warriors, a stretch of two or three games where Klay struggles barely registers. They're up 2-0 now after winning Game 1 by 22 and Game 2 by 19.

Warriors point guard and two-time MVP Stephen Curry said he and his teammates will carry memories of last year's Game 3 defeat into this year's Game 3. We obviously had a lead and we lost it.
Maybe Kyrie Irving-LeBron's current mentee-gets dealt, and the Cavs bring in a pass-first point guard, the same playmaker LeBron groused about not having earlier this year.
