Draymond Green Says If The Warriors Choke In The Playoffs, There Could Be Some Major Moves Coming
JaVale McGee #1 of the Golden State Warriors blocks the shot of LaMarcus Aldridge #12 of the San Antonio Spurs in the first quarter during Game One of the first round of the 2018 NBA Playoff at ORACLE Arena on April 14, 2018 in Oakland, California. The Spurs are arguably in worse shape, as their best player managed only nine games during the regular season and is also unlikely to suit up for the first round. But hey, it worked.
Nick Young didn't get many minutes during the Warriors' 113-92 victory over the Spurs in Game 1, but he had enough time to have an extremely Nick Young sequence. Combining that with the offensive prowess of Kevin Durant and one of the best shooters in the history of the game with Klay Thompson, the Warriors are still one of the best offenses in the National Basketball Association even without Steff Curry. Golden State ranks second in offensive efficiency and San Antonio ranks fourth in defensive efficiency.
From the opening tip, Golden State was executing smart plays. Durant scored 24 points (9-17 FG, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals. "We all say the Spurs is the model franchise for the last 20, 25 years right?"
"With the last month, having so many injuries, we've had so many funky lineups that we don't usually practice or they aren't ideal lineups just because of the circumstances this past month", Cook said. "Overreacting to a lot of things because we are so excited that we're in the playoffs and playing, obviously, the best team in the world".
Warriors: The Warriors had 32 assists on 44 field goals, 23 of those assists on 33 made baskets through the third. "Still, it's hard sometimes mentally and physically to get to the level of these teams where they're fighting just to get into the playoffs". San Antonio is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games versus Golden State. The Warriors used the Spurs switching defense against them, forcing a smaller guy - Dejounte Murray, Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills - on Kevin Durant, and while the Spurs smalls pressured KD just shot over the top of them on his way to 16 first-half points on 10 shots.
"I'm all about the team", Cook said. The Spurs (7) are without star Kawhi Leonard, who has missed most of the season.
