Which East Team Matches Up Best With the Warriors’ Infinity Gauntlet Lineup?

https://www.si.com/nba/2019/02/08/easte ... ors-lineup


Good read, so I shared with the forum.
The writer seems to believe Raptors match up best, but I don’t know. I can’t see anyone matching up with Durant, Curry and Klay once the 3’s come raining down. Lowry and Danny Green are no match for Golden State’s backcourt.

Then there’s Draymond and Boogie—two of the best passing bigs in the game.

Sixers, or the bucks, the Celtics are finished. The Gordon hawood contact killed them

I can see the 6ers winning a game. I can also see why they acquired Tobias Harris. I just don’t believe Simmons is experienced enough to overcome Curry’s dynamics.

Butler vs Klay Thompson would be a good matchup on both ends of the court.

I didn’t think much of Phillys chances until they got Harris. They have time to gel and thus far, It looks solid.

If all remains the same, aka no injuries I don’t see anyone giving GSW many worries but if anyone has the potential, I would give it to Philly.

Embiid/Cousins could be fun.

I agree with the article. The Raptors would give the best fight against the Warriors (and by that I mean win 1-2 games). Their lineup of Lowry-Green-Kawhi-Siakam-Ibaka is very versatile on defense and Kawhi has shown he can handle Durant AND produce on offense at the same time. Can't see anyone else do so in the east.

Of course, they need start-of-the-season Lowry, top-of-his-game Green, and healthy-not-resting Kawhi
