Aldridge carries Spurs into playoffs, Durant not so much

San Antonio doesn't have a ton of shooting on their roster with Kawhi Leonard out of the lineup, but Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills, Danny Green, and Manu Ginobili are all guards that have shot over 33% from behind the arc this season.

Filling it out tonight! Stephen Curry will not play in the series due to a knee injury and their other All-Stars (Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green) have missed time in the regular season with injuries. But they certainly weren't in Game 1.

That win was just what Warriors' coach Frederick Bynoe ordered as his team now move onto 15 points, one point behind the Lakers following round two of the ongoing Co-operators General Insurance Barbados Amateur Basketball Premier League yesterday. They'll then have the band back together for a Round 2 matchup with Portland or New Orleans, before a likely conference finals battle with Houston. The playoffs are now here, and they must show they're actually capable of flipping that switch. "Cook has flourished offensively this season and is now a legitimate threat from three point range, but Murray is 6'5" and a tough defender, and he'll make sure to pester Cook all series.

Any time Curry is out of the lineup, there is a good chance Kevin Durant has a huge stat line. Kyle Anderson will be responsible for trying to keep Durant from dropping 30+ points in any given game.

Best Online Sportsbook Bet to Make: Judging by the above listed odds, there's not much sense in taking the Warriors straight up.

The Warriors are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games. With Kawhi Leonard presumably out for the rest of the season, Aldridge is really the only serious offensive threat that the Spurs have at their disposal.

These NBA playoffs will be more global than ever.

The Spurs finished the season at 47-35 which is the first time the Spurs didn’t win at least 50 games since the strike shortened 1998-99 season. He's being pretty discrete about his decision, and he'll re-evaluate each of his bigs after each game's performance.

Lastly, Porsche sports vehicle division head Blume has been promoted to the top management body of the entire organization. Mueller, who had headed Porsche, took over from Winterkorn when he resigned because of the scandal in September 2015.

Jordan Bell, the explosive rookie, offers a new bounce to the Warriors on defense and offense, though undersized compared to Pachulia.

He's already the all-time postseason leader in points, is seven steals from passing Scottie Pippen (395) for the playoff record in that department, is four shots from passing Kobe Bryant (4,499) for another career postseason mark.

Nothing highlighted that athleticism gap early like the play of JaVale McGee.

"It's obviously hard to do", Kerr said. And the playoffs are all about momentum. Regardless, the Spurs will be first-round fodder for the Warriors and then must go back to the drawing board as they contemplate the future of the franchise.

Headley even tapped in one of his own misses before Kareem Farrell got out in transition too off of national centre John Jones' costly turnovers.

The Spurs rank 13th in steals allowed per game (7.6) while the Warriors rank 27th (8.8).

The Warriors are naturally good when it comes to attacking, but it's their defense that has been lacking over the past month. "There's no way", Kerr said, when asked if the Warriors were preparing for the possibility of going without their star guard to start the postseason.
