Blogging With the Enemy: Golden State of Mind

The more I think about it, wondering whether the Hawks will run with the Warriors tonight does not constitute constructive speculation. The Hawks should beat the Warriors if the game has 98 possessions. The Hawks should beat the Warriors if the game has 89 possessions. Thus I'll be watching to see whether Mike Woodson or Don Nelson controls the matchups.

My advice for Coach Woodson: If Nelson wants to run a four- or five-guard* lineup out there, let him. Josh Smith and Al Horford are athletic enough to defend smaller players creditably and the rebounding advantage those two would presumably give the Hawks will be valuable.

*On a non-partisan level I am completely in favor of Don Nelson doing whatever he can to blur the line between creative and crazy.
