Warriors down Mills' Spurs in NBA Playoffs

Warriors down Mills' Spurs in NBA Playoffs

KT: Just his headiness, his ability to run a team. The Spurs 2018 Playoffs are presented by H-E-B.

San Antonio also shot only 39.2 percent from the field. "I think the whole point of these games here early on in this series is to re-establish our defense".

Shaun Livingston throws down a dunk during the Warriors 113-92 win over the Spurs at Oracle on Saturday.

Not many coaches are better at making game-to-game adjustments like Gregg Popovich, and there's no doubt the future Hall of Fame coach will come up with a better game plan heading into Game 2.

Green ended Saturday with a near triple-double of 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting, eight rebounds, and 11 assists in 34 minutes. Seriously, though: Anything less would've been a big surprise. And the Warriors relied on an athletic center JaVale McGee as its trump card to spark both more offensive energy and defensive intensity. Seriously, what was left to accomplish, other than to stay healthy? "Same as Kevin. Myself". I said, 'Great.' He goes and does his stuff, and we continue to prepare. Reserve Rudy Gay led the Spurs with 15 points.

"He's on the court doing some stuff", Kerr said.

The Golden State defense was especially problematic to San Antonio star LaMarcus Aldridge, who was held to 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting. Manu Ginobili? Tony Parker?

The series will shift to San Antonio for Games 3 and 4 on Thursday and next Sunday. They spotted 126 points each to the Pelicans and Pacers, and in the season final did a complete no-show, getting spanked by 40 courtesy of Utah.

So, the Warriors lacked enough defensive effort to close out the 2017-18 with a top-five ranking. As coaches tend to do in these matters, Kerr jeopardized his vocal chords a few times while trying to get the message across in the disinterested locker room. They've just got to get the right guys. Wouldn't that be understandable, and wise on some levels, given the risk of something bad happening to a hamstring? "Regardless of what everyone is saying - 'The Warriors have lost it, ' 'They're not together, ' 'They can't win without Steph, ' 'They're not the same team, ' blahzay blahzay blahzay blah blah blah - we know what we're capable of".

Frozen Four: Michigan's Season Ends With Heartbreak At The Buzzer
It wasn't the most talented team I've had here in four years but it was the best team and we just loved being around each other. The other game will see Big Ten champion Notre Dame and Blackhawks defenseman prospect Dennis Gilbert take on MI .

The Warriors had too much length for the Spurs, especially with their modified, unusually long starting lineup that differed from the small ball "Death Lineup" that the Warriors have made famous. "The last month or so our defense had been subpar".

The sixth-seeded Pelicans were the only road team to win on the opening day of the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Where do you even start with that?

The Warriors were determined to pick up their defense, and they did just that. But until then, wrapping up the Spurs will serve as necessary preparation. Kevin Durant added 24 to go along with 8 rebounds and 7 assists.

Below, Thompson covers all of that and more in a Q&A with The Spokesman-Review. The Sixers could end this one early with Embiid back in the lineup.

If Mills and the Spurs intend on clawing their way back into the series, adjustments will be need to be made.

Quotable: "They're going to bring out the best in us, or they're going to completely expose us". "They were much better than us". It was a mock vote but they all voted that he had to leave the room. But at the same time, we've got to be smarter. We understand we're not favorites. We've won games without myself. The Spurs, meanwhile, once again will be without Kawhi Leonard, who still is suffering from a calf injury. Most importantly, though, Popovich is going to tell Durant "don't be so good". "We did not end the season on a high note, we kind of hobbled into the playoffs".

Well, tough for one team in Texas. "But he did have dinner with his family last night, so we'll see".
