05:49 PM ET 05.02 | A lot of people are saying that if the Warriors don't put it away in game six, they're not going to win the series. I tend to agree with this because the Dubs aren't exactly the best team under pressure, as they're all young and inexperienced. Unfortunately for them, they were paired with one of the best home teams in the NBA. The key was originally to win one road game, which they did, but the Nuggets have always come close to winning. In game three of the series, the Warriors escaped with a 110-108 victory. The Warriors are good at home, and no matter what George Karl throws at them, they're going to find a way to counteract it. This time, however, it's different. The Nuggets are now using their bigs, and sometimes, Andrew Bogut doesn't step up to the plate and compete. He may be a tough guy, and certainly isn't a coward, as one Denver Columnist pointed out, but he fails to box out and rebound. Ty Lawson, the Nuggets' point guard, is getting wide open looks at the rim because he's not playing good defense. On offense, he was good in games one and four, but failed to produce in game five. He had 18 minutes of play, and scores just two points. Festus Ezeli, his backup, had 14 minutes and scored eight points.

I've been quite harsh on Bogut for being hurt always and never pulling his 'weight" for his teams. Extra weight and all, the guy showed up big time. Some of the rebounds were "nasty", he should physicality which the Warriors sorely needed.

Many congrats to Jackson and his boys!!!
