Original title: Kidd: Everyone thinks the game will be a flower but no one thinks we can win
On May 16th, Beijing time, today the Lone Ranger defeated the Suns 123-90, won the tiebreaker, and advanced to the Western Conference finals.
Before the start of the first round of the playoffs, the media and experts have made predictions about this group of matchups. All reporters believed that the Suns would advance, and the Lone Ranger players posted screenshots of the original prediction on social media to slap their faces.
After the game, Lone Ranger coach Kidd also said that the Lone Ranger has never been optimistic about winning the series. “Nobody thought we had a chance. A lot of people said it was going to be a bad game. Well, they were right,” Kidd said. “But they didn’t see us as the winner.”
This is Kidd’s first season coaching the Mavericks, and he has full confidence in the team. “We’ve always believed in ourselves, and we showed it today,” Kidd said. “I hate people labeling us or putting limits on us. We don’t know how far we’re going to get, and it’s us and them. The reason for the game.”
The Mavericks will face the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals, and the first game between the two sides will start on the 19th.
