HUGE.

That’s about the only word that aptly describes Andrew Bogut‘s first quarter in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

The Golden State Warriors‘ pillar of Australian defence had his radar well and truly dialled in early on in the game, and guarded the rim like Cerberus guarding the bloody gates of hell.

The former overall number one draft pick batted away shots from the Cleveland Cavaliers left, right, and centre on his way to amassing an extremely hefty four (count ’em, FOUR) blocks for the quarter.

His career postseason PB is five, just to put that in perspective.

More to that, all four blocks came inside a blistering 8-minute period of play for the big man. One even resulted in an assist to Steph Curry, who took the ball back up to court to drain a three.

All four of Bogut’s first quarter blocks were smashed down on different Cavs players, helping the Warriors curtail what otherwise might have been a blistering start for their Ohio-rivals.

And if all that weren’t enough by itself, the big Bogie got to bring the hammer down early in the game after being set up by a floating Draymond Green pass.

Despite a relatively quiet game from both Klay Thompson and Steph Curry thus far, the Warriors still maintain a healthy 16-point lead over the Cavs at the time of writing, with under 5 minutes left to go in the third quarter.
