David Lee just saved the Warriors hopes of winning a championship. How? Well, Steve Kerr finally listened to me and put David Lee in. It took him a while but he finally did it. Bogut is really not able to run in transition and has not really been great on defense. Once they put Lee in, the offense was flowing for the Warriors.
David Lee is really known for his passing and his great ability to finish at the rim, and it showed in the game. When he was on the court, the floor was spaced and when he drove, he either had an open layup or someone would be spaced out and open for a shot on the perimeter.
If David Lee didn't play in game 3 and game 4, the Warriors would be in most likely in a 3-1 losing in the series. He probably just saved the Finals series for the Warriors. Honestly, I don't understand why Steve Kerr hadn't played him before. Why was Ezlie playing over an All-Star PF? David Lee is very talented and for some odd reason, Kerr wasn't playing him.
The Warriors are now going back home as they tied the series. David Lee provides this team with a great moving and flowing offense that Andrew Bogut just doesn't provide. I honestly don't think that Andrew Bogut will play much and I doubt Kerr will put him in the lineup. One thing is for sure though. He will play David Lee, because David Lee just saved their championship run.
