As they say, you are what your record says you are. And the record indicates that the Warriors basically dominated the Celtics for most of this series, and talent matters above all else in the NBA. There is a substantial talent gap, and Tatum got badly schooled by Wiggins.The Warriors have undressed the Celtics the past three games and have had the two best players on the floor between Curry and Wiggins. The talent gap seems pretty large once you get past Tatum and Jaylen on the Celtics.
As I've said before, though, this Warriors team would have easily swept any other ECF team other than perhaps a healthy Bucks team.
I'm still optimistic about this team's future, but the roster does need upgrading. Grant Williams and Pritchard were both badly outplayed by their counterparts on the Warriors even when Steph was on the bench.
