Kerr says defensive focus inspired Warriors against Spurs

16 April 2018

They found a nuclear generator. They were on the playoffs.

The Warriors were weapons-grade plutonium Saturday afternoon at Oracle Arena.

Curry averaged 26.4 points, 6.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds for the Warriors, who have played without several top players during the season due to injuries. The Warriors are used to being the best out West, a top target that everyone in the National Basketball Association seeks to unseat. "We know what it takes this time a year to win", Green said. "We got to do better than we think we can do".

"Good" was a word Green also used to describe Durant, who scored 11 points in the first quarter to help recharge a Warriors team that was without All-Stars Curry and Thompson for parts of the last month of the regular season. "So we'll fight as hard as we can in Game 2". There's been games we've won without Steph, series, same as Kevin, myself, we've won games without myself. Head Coach, Gregg Popovich will be looking to find new ways to score against the tough Warriors defense. "We're primed for this".

The winners for both awards, voted for by PFA members, will be announced at a ceremony at London's Grosvenor House on 22 April. However, Salah has emerged as a real challenger to the Belgian after maintaining his outstanding form in the Premier League .

"We had a lot of juices flowing, adrenaline rushing", Green said.

When the team shows this combination of defensive intensity and ball movement to go with their always elite scoring capabilities, they are almost unbeatable.

On Saturday, the Warriors were missing their best player and floor leader - Curry.

Leonard has played in just nine regular season games due to a right quadriceps injury.

The host Warriors updated star guard Curry's left knee sprain before playing, saying he was making progress and will be re-evaluated next Saturday. As a result, he will intensify his on-court rehabilitation in the coming days, which will include more running and lateral movement. The San Antonio Spurs have lost nine straight road games. Common sense, too, wants to chime in and declare the Spurs without Kawhi Leonard are just standing in the way, albeit proudly, of the Warriors' path to greater things in the post-season. The Houston Rockets surpassed them for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and with Stephen Curry out until at least the second round, Golden State seemed vulnerable in that was utterly unfamiliar. But they could have options. Zaza Pachulia didn't even see action in the contest and Golden State still had a +21 edge on the glass. He was in NY. "I think the whole point of these games here early on in this series is to re-establish our defense".

The lineup adjustment Kerr made appeared to hamper Mills the most, as the Warriors' added size and length smothered Mills at every turn. Should the Warriors beat the Spurs and advance, it's still not clear if he'd be healthy to return for a second-round matchup.

Getty Quinn Cook is filling in for Steph Curry in the Warriors starting lineup.

JaVale McGee had the defensive assignment on Aldridge at the start of the game and actually outscored him 9-4 in the Warriors' first-quarter runaway.
