Bradley Beal scored 19 points for Washington, while Mike Scott had 14 and Marcin Gortat 12. 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.
"I let the team vote on whether they wanted him to stay in the room or not", Popovich said.
"Philadelphia", given the regular season in the match against Miami extended its winning streak to 17 matches. "We just want to be able to challenge those shots, knowing that he's going to make a lot of them, but I think JaVale was able to challenge some of them and make it hard". Superstar teammate Kevin Durant is wrapping up a media scrum on one end, reigning Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green is filming a promo on the other and Golden States universally-popular point guard, Stephen Curry, is hoisting 3-point shots on the nearest practice court.
The shots sank into the net almost anytime Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson released the ball. And they need help on defense. Making the move even more incredible, the five-man lineup of Iguodala, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Javale McGee had not played a single minute together on the season before yesterday. "I think that's the beauty of our team", Durant said. "We cared", said the former MVPas quoted by Mark Medina of the Mercury News. We're underdogs. To get a win here we've got to overachieve. "We're trying to anticipate what they are, but we can never be sure". Green was his usual stat-stuffing self with 12 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds, while Durant tallied 24 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. Curry has only played in 51 games this season.
Here's what Popovich said about Gay after the game: "I thought he was great". Hopefully that mojo doesn't come with us into the playoffs.
"For us to be able to throw Andre out there one through four offensively and defensively", Kerr said, "it's an incredible valuable thing". At some point, it becomes hard to keep up the motivation for a grueling 82-game season.
"Every day has been something good, advancing the rehab process", Curry told reporters. It left many to wonder: After going so long without delivering playoff-level effort, could the Warriors automatically turn it on when the appropriate time arrived? Instead, they fiend themselves No. 2.
SR: Did coach (Steve) Kerr know about it?
So, yes, the Warriors set out to re-introduce themselves and did so Sunday. And there's no problem with that.
With one of 16 victories completed towards winning the franchise's third championship in four seasons, the Warriors will be back at it on Monday night during Game 2 in search of a 2-0 series lead. It wasn't just the offensive end where Patty found life hard.
