Sideshow Bob Anderson Varejao is a spy.
Yes, some say the former Cavaliers forward and center was only brought aboard a 73-win Warriors squad mid-season because he has some insider knowledge about a likely Finals opponent. Turns out it was a prescient move.
But the other Brazilian on the Warriors is also a good passer, has a soft touch around the basket, some underrated low-post moves, and the most annoying defense this side of Matthew Dellavedova. On that latter point, Kevin Love can agree.
Love was whistled for an offensive foul in the first half, and as Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy briefly elaborated after looking at the replays, this was clearly a case of the dreaded #flop. How dare he!
The Dubs are winning at the half, 52-43.
