After the Warriors handled the Rockets, 119-106, in Game 1 on Monday night, “The Greg Papa Show” with Bonta Hill began on a familiar note: with Papa pointing out that he’s never been a fan of the West’s top seed.

“I very quietly — and on this show not so quietly — thought when they get on the same 94-foot by 50-foot slab of hardwood, the Warriors will crush them. They are a better team. We got into all their flaws.”

Papa admitted that he thought it would take the Warriors’ A game, A- game or maybe B+ game to take down Houston.  That wasn’t the case.

“The Houston Rockets allowed the Warriors to beat them, what do you think, Bonta? C+, C, C-?”

Papa first predicted that Golden State would “crush” the Rockets back in February…

“If they do play — and it’s not about when they play other teams and the Warriors play other teams — when they get on the same 94-foot slab of hardwood and have to deal with the Warrior machine — that’s who they’ve got to deal with — and they’re going to get crushed.”
