NBA Playoffs: Breaking down the Spurs-Warriors series

15 April 2018

Kerr's pregame message didn't seem to resonate with his players, however, as the Warriors stumbled through a 119-79 loss to Utah at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Curry is expected to make his return in the second round of the playoffs, should the Warriors make it past San Antonio. The Warriors had 14 assists, less than half of their season average. They also went just 7-10 over the last month of the season. While the Warriors were busy winning 73 games and breaking a regular season record, the Spurs were lurking at 67 wins with a strength-of-schedule-adjusted point differential just as a historic. It's why Steve Kerr chose to surprise everyone and go with Andre Iguodala as the starting point guard, which meant Golden State began the game with a lineup that had logged exactly zero minutes together all season long - Iguodala, Klay Thompson, Durant, Draymond Green and McGee.

Even without Curry, they should handle a depleted Spurs team in the first round.

Leading the Warriors now is fellow superstar Kevin Durant.

We're still not quite sure what to say about Nick Young's press conference from earlier this year, when he wore an unbuttoned shirt because it was cold (???) and talked about how John Travolta talked to him during his dream the night before. "Nonetheless, I think if anybody's capable of it, we are". "Last few games, we cared".

Vinesh Phogat and Sumit clinch CWG gold medals in wrestling
Indian ended its campaign in wrestling with two gold, and two bronze medals at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast on Saturday. Sumit was gifted a walkover by Sinivie Boltic of Nigeria in his last bout which handed him the title.

Since the Cavaliers overhauled their roster at the trade deadline, they've played the Raptors twice and blown them out both times.

For pretty much the NBA's entire history, there's been little reason to tune in for the playoffs until they got to the finals.

The surest bet at the start of this year's National Basketball Association season was another Cavs v Warriors final but Cleveland have misfired all season and actually lost three of their four regular season games with the Pacers. If Portland can win a seven-game series against New Orleans, it will likely play the Golden State Warriors.

"I just feel like there was so much movement in our lineups", Durant told reporters Thursday. We got the experience and know what it takes. I felt like it killed the morale a bit towards the end of the year.

United States, United Kingdom, and France launch strikes against Syria
The third target, which was also near Homs, contained both a chemical weapons equipment storage facility and a command post. More than 100 missiles were fired in the capital city of Damascus by the USA and its allies- France and Britain .

That game exemplifies what could go wrong for Philadelphia in the playoffs.

However, the Raptors' problems come in the postseason where they've only made it out of the first round three times in nine attempts to date.

"We need the competitive spirit", [Steve] Kerr said. But as they say, the playoffs is when the real season begins. "I don't know how many teams have done it". Steven Adams is a very solid big man and they still have Carmelo Anthony - although to me, it's not a big 3 anymore but rather a dynamic duo. Getting healthy would be a good start. Instead, they fiend themselves No. 2.

Final Prediction: Golden State Warriors defeat San Antonio Spurs 4-1 to advance to the second round. Sometimes the hunger goes away for a little while; sometimes it's hard to find that again.

Miloš Forman, director of 'Amadeus' and 'Cuckoo's Nest,' is dead at 86
It was nominated for, and won, multiple Oscars, including Best Picture. - 1958-62: Married to actress Jana Brejchova. Director Milos Forman, seen here at a 2011 screening of "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" in Bryant Park, has died. .

In one month's time, when that series kicks off, the Warriors machine should be humming along. Even without Curry, Golden State will still look to put up a lot of shots from beyond the arc and bury the Spurs in triples.
