1: Oppening Night: San Antonio at home
The 2016-17 season opens up with an absolute BANGER with the San Antonio Spurs, who for the first time since 1997 the Spurs team will not feature Tim Duncan. The Pau Gasol Era has begun in Texas, and this shapes up as a top tear matchup in the West. The dubs will have the clear advantage in guard play as Tony Parker is not the same player he was 4 years ago, while there should an advantage for the big men on the Spurs. The most intriguing matchup is the matchup at the 3: Kevin Durant vs. Kawhi Leonard. Outside of all the intrigue of basketball being back in general, this is going to be a great game.
2: Nov 3. Oklahoma City at Home
This is the grudge match everyone has marked on their calendar. Russ along with the whole state of Oklahoma is pissed at KD for making a grown man decision and coming to the dubs. Looking forward to the Dubs blowing them out by 30.
3: Nov. 18 in Boston
I would have kept this game off the list, but for the fact that the Celtics were talking all type of shit about how they have the formula to beat the Warriors. Bananaland. I fully expect a 50 point win for the warriors, and a thorough embarrassment of the whole celtic orginization.
4: Christmas in Cleveland
I shouldn't even have to give a description on this. This dubs team will be LOOKING FOR REEEEVEEENNNGGGGGGEEEEE. Should be a great way to cap off your christmas.
5: Jan 28 Clippers at home, Jan 29 @ Portland
This is the coldest back to back of the Season, I would be shocked if this team can take both of these games. These matchup arguably feature the three best backcourts in the NBA. I love seeing Dame play, and if I had to put money on it I would pick Portland to get this Win.
Feb 11: @ OKC
Saturday in February in OKC, sound familiar? Kevin Durant goes back to OKC for the first time since coming to the dubs, this game is shaping up to be the game of the year. Russ will come out pissed, and I cannot wait for KD to silence the crowd.
Tuesday night cannot get here soon enough.
Everything you need to know about the yay.
