The genius game plan Steve Kerr created for game 4 of the finals

Everybody is talking about the small-ball game plan that Steve Kerr successfully executed once again after practicing it in the series with the Memphis Grizzlies, but the truth was that the Golden State Warriors needed this in order to gain defensive edge in the switching after picks and it provided enough speed in their front court to attack the Cavaliers on the break.

Andre Iguodala is one of the players that really stepped up, taking the starter role for the first time in the season, recording 22 points and 8 rebounds on 8/15 shooting (4 three pointers). Having him on the PF position, Harrison Barnes as small forward, Draymond Green as center and Klay Thompson at his usual SG position, gave the Warriors an opportunity to double team LeBron James whenever they needed to.

.

David Lee had 9 points, 5 boards and 3 assists in only 15 minutes of action from the bench and it seems like the experienced big man is the X factor in the past two games when it comes to the offensive flow of the Golden State Warriors, leader of the bench squad alongside Shaun Livingston.

STEVE KERR LIED ABOUT HIS STARTING FIVE BEFORE GAME 4

In the past two games they had issues when Andrew Bogut needed to switch after a pick and lots of times when they left LeBron to play iso on Barnes or Iguodala. Last night they’ve doubled James every time he put the ball on the floor, which gave enough room to other Cavaliers to create the offense or take clean shots, but it seems like only Timofey Mozgov could score the rock. Cleveland’s starting five put up some solid numbers, three players had double doubles and Iman Shumpert had a nice all around game, but it seems like the team desperately needs these two days of rest.
