The Warriors were really hoping their next series in the NBA playoffs would be against the Clippers, for one very specific reason.
Instead, they will be taking on the Jazz in Round 2, and they are not happy they will have to spend their nights out in Salt Lake City, rather than Los Angeles.
“No comparison. There’s no such thing, man,” Warriors forward Matt Barnes told ESPN. “There’s no nightlife in Utah. Obviously as players, you want to be able to have a little bit of a nightlife but the main focus is winning games. Me personally, I want to get out there because I want to beat the Clippers. That’s my former Cheap Replica Soccer Jerseys team and my kids are out there. But as far as nightlife, there’s no comparison to nightlife in Utah and L.A.”
“You also have to understand that if you ever want to get out of the West, you’re going to have to go through them. I understand that’s what it is,” Lillard said Monday night. “It’s always been that way in the NBA. I think about when the Pistons were just beating up on (Michael) Jordan and kicking his butt every year and he had to get through them if he wanted to get to where he wanted to go. That’s just what it is because they’re Cheap Retro NBA Jerseys going to be there, they’re going to be there every year and we have to look at that and understand that we have to be better. We have to go get better and come back better as a group if we want to move past them.”
With the trio of Lillard, McCollum and Nurkic, the Trail Blazers have a blueprint Cheap Reversible Basketball Jerseys for the future. If they can get off to a stronger start than they did this year, and keep that momentum going, they will be real contenders in the Western Conference.
