Spencer Dinwiddie looks like a definite player for the future contributing 20+ points from the bench in the last three games of the series. Jalen Brunson was aggressive, but not clinical at times.

The Warriors are not showing an age problem with players like Jordan Poole (22), Kevon Looney (26), Jonathan Kuminga (19), and Moses Moody (19) just to name a few, with the aforementioned Wiggins an integral part of the team at 27 years old.

Speaking of Steph Curry, the man has finally won a finals MVP award, no not the real one, the inaugural Earvin “Magic” Johnson Western Conference Finals MVP award. He can add this accolade to all his other ones including regular-season MVP, 3-time champion, and the man with the most made three-point field goals in the history of the game. The hope for those in San Francisco is that he can win the same award for the finals seeing point guards don’t win that award.
