NBA 2021-22 will see GSW facing off against Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday, 10 January 2022 at 07:00 AM IST
Klay Thompson is one of the best shooters to ever play in the NBA and his defensive tools also make him one of the best two-way guards to play the game.
However, he hasn’t played in over two years, and adjusting to the league’s pace can be tough. Still, for someone who has scored 20+ points per game and has made the best defensive teams in the league shake their heads, I believe Klay will figure it out soon.
His return is not that easy to accommodate for coach Steve Kerr who will have to make a ton of roster adjustments.
See, Jordan Poole and Gary Payton have played regular minutes at the guard position and while Poole has scored 16+ points regularly this season, Payton has been an exciting two-way threat and a fan favourite in the team.
So, how will those minutes be adjusted? How many minutes will Klay play here? Still, with Curry, Klay, Wiggins, Green, Looney, Porter Jr.,
Poole, Iguodala, Payton II, Bjelica, Toscano-Anderson, Lee, and soon to be returning Wiseman, the Warriors look a scary scary outfit.
Cavaliers love their bigs! The team features two Power Forwards and two Centers in the starting lineup, which is unheard of even in the Center-based eras during the 50s-70s era.
With these Power Forwards/Centers, there are a couple of advantages, one, you get a size advantage on a nightly basis, and secondly, the potential for both defensive and offensive rebounding is high.
Markkanen is more of a two-guard floor-stretcher and off-the-catch player at this point but of course, it is Darius Garland’s passing, shooting, and driving that has made this fourForward/two Center lineup work.
Off the bench, Kevin Love is another Power Forward who can shoot, drive, rebound, and defend at a high clip.
With Cedi Osman, the team gets a reliable scorer off the bench and the new acquisition of Rondo to fill in for Rubio may work but we will see.
Overall, the Cavaliers are obsessed with Power Forwards and I am highly interested to see how this works out in the long run.
