Too Much Carlos Boozer

The Oracle Arena is notrious for being one of the hardest places to play in the NBA, so loud you can't even hear yourself think. Going into game 4, the Utah Jazz ears were probably still ringing from their game 3 loss where they just got hammered by the Warriors and Baron Davis, 125-105. With momentum on Golden State's side, a record crowd(in California) of 20,679 screaming fans, it seemed as if all the Warriors had to do was show up and the series would be tied 2 a piece.

Unless they could find an answer for Carlos Boozer this series was destine to go back to Utah 3-1 deficit. As usual, Boozer dominated in the paint scoring 34 points, ripping down 12 rebounds and proving the point that the Warriors have no answer for the monster in the paint. Boozer wasn't the only who showed up to play Sunday, Deron Williams made his presence felt with 20 points and game high 13 assists, besting Baron Davis who just couldn't get things going finishing with 15 points and 7 assists. Derek Fisher made his patent playoff apperance hitting two clutch threes and having a 21 point effort, showing his playoff experience and coming up big once again.

On the verge of elimination, the Golden State Warriors have their work cut out for them yet again. Im hoping they can come through, because this is the most entertaining basketball I have seen in years and I would like to see them go all the way(miracles can happen, just ask the Mavericks), since my Lakers are out. So Baron Davis better show up in Utah on Tuesday or this cinderella story is over.
