Golden State Warriors, 4-16


"We have been here before in the post-season and know what it takes to win". They're not together. They can't win without Steph.

Klay Thompson led the way with 27 points on 11-13 shooting as the Warriors opened the Playoffs in dominating fashion with a 113-92 win over the San Antonio Spurs Saturday afternoon at Oracle. Having shouldered the offensive load for the entire season with Leonard out of the picture, power forward LaMarcus Aldridge struggled, scoring 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting.

Asked if this was a statement game, Iguodala (four points, seven rebounds, four assists) said, "Well, we're in the playoffs".

The explanations behind the far-less-than-stellar play all season (which still resulted in 58 wins, third-best in the NBA) were freakish and ever-changing: the Warriors were both exhausted and conserving energy, confident and yet concerned.

The defending champions looked unbeatable again.

However, the Warriors still have enough firepower even without Curry to beat basically anyone in the league. And the Golden State Warriors relied on athletic center JaVale McGee as their trump card to spark both more offensive energy and defensive intensity. They have plans for nothing short of a repeat title. So we're primed for this. I think a lot of people tend to forget what we're capable of.

Golden State came with the kind of swarming defence it is so used to playing but hadn't exhibited much lately as rotations were mixed and matched because of injuries and illness.

San Antonio proved to be no match on the hardwood in the opener against the defending champs as they were hammered pretty comfortably in the contest. That would put his earliest possible return at Game 4 of the first round April 22 in San Antonio. They (Pacers) played better basketball than us, They came out with a better strategy. Belinelli and Ilyasova combined to hit four 3-pointers in the third quarter that helped shift the tone from physical and foul-filled to a long-distance game that allowed the Sixers to put away this one.

Kerr has a revolving door at the starting center position, rarely revealing who he intends to go with on any given night, but clearly McGee was the right call on Saturday. "They are not the same team.' Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah'". That means Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, Patty Mills and the other perimeter shooters are going to have to step up and make some shots or this is going to be a quick, unceremonious exit for San Antonio. The Warriors managed just 75 points in that game, their lowest point total of the season.

Curry has missed the team's past 10 games after suffering the injury March 23 against the Atlanta Hawks.

Kerr went with his best defensive unit. He'll have his work cut out for him against the stingy Spurs' point-of-attack defense, which, by the way, finished fourth in defensive efficiency without Kawhi Leonard, the two-time Defensive Player of the Year. "That's the reason this is a championship team".
