Stephen Curry Progressing, to be Re-Evaluated in One Week

Golden State Warriors Draymond Green warms up on the court before their NBA game against the Charlotte Hornets at the Oracle Arena in Oakland Calif. on Friday Dec. 29 2017

Warriors still the team to beat

"Our minds were elsewhere at the end of the season and we were anxious about the playoffs instead of being anxious about today", Durant told ESPN. San Antonio knows that they're going to have to come up with a better strategy in Game 2 on the offensive end. "We kind of hobbled into the playoffs, but we know how talented we are and how good we are". There have been series where we've won without Kevin, without myself, without our head coach. They can't win without Steph (Curry).

Green ended Saturday with a near triple-double of 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting, eight rebounds, and 11 assists in 34 minutes. Draymond Green chipped in 12 points, eight rebounds and 11 assists while Shaun Livingston added 11 points off the bench.

"We were just very overly excited, overzealous", San Antonio guard Danny Green, who scored six points, said.

The defending champions looked unbeatable again.

"That's fair enough. Hats off to Golden State", Murray said.

I play for the team, I try to score each game for the team, that's the most important thing for me'. The Reds' boss told theIndependent: "Over two legs, I really feel we deserve".

"We have been here before in the postseason and know what it takes to win". "We're primed for this". There are people who will say, 'I'd rather play the Warriors right now in the first round than the Thunder or the Jazz.

San Antonio proved to be no match on the hardwood in the opener against the defending champs as they were hammered pretty comfortably in the contest. "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".

Predicably, teams are already preparing potential trade offers for when the Spurs finally end their season.

Kerr chose McGee to start at center in Game 1, and Kerr said he "probably" will keep it that way.

The No.2 seed in the Western Conference, the Warriors soared to a 28-17 lead after one quarter and never looked back.

Russia's foreign ministry said on Saturday that Western strikes on Syria came as the country had "a chance of a peaceful future". Syrian air defenses responded to the joint strikes by the US, France and Britain.

Asked about keeping McGee in the starting lineup, Kerr responded "Probably".

Curry has missed the team's past 10 games after suffering the injury March 23 against the Atlanta Hawks.

What irritated Kerr was how the Warriors dialed down their defensive intensity in the weeks leading into the playoffs.

From the opening tip Saturday Golden State played with energy on defense, moved the ball on offense, and exploited their considerable athleticism advantage over San Antonio. "That is the reason we're a championship team". "It's the defence that has been the key for this team for years". Thompson only needed a few seconds to hold the ball before making most of his points on catch-and-shoot opportunities. "But he's making good progress".

Embiid was a spectator in Game 1 of the first-round series because of a broken orbital bone around his left eye. The All-Star center has been hopeful he can return early in the series. Belinelli had 25 and Ilyasova 17. "The defense was really poor as far as following game plan of the first quarter, and it's a bad combination to play defense like that and not shoot at the other end". They were on the playoffs. The small forward is out injured and has played just nine games for Popovic's side this season.
