Kevin Durant, Golden State Warriors get defensive, beat Spurs in Game 1

Kevin Durant is going to get paid by the Warriors

For the second straight season, the Golden State Warriors will face the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference playoffs. But hey, it worked. But Thompson hit a momentum-killing 3-pointer and the Golden State defense held San Antonio to one field goal over the next 5 1/2 minutes to re-establish control at 73-55. Per the team release, Curry will "intensify his on-court rehabilitation in the coming days, which will include more running and lateral movement".

Surprisingly, Watson is siding with the Spurs in this one and it seems to mostly have to do with the absence of Stephen Curry for the Warriors. Their opponents in this contest, the Golden State Warriors, have been extremely solid this season despite dealing with a variety of key injuries throughout the season.

Wolves promoted after Fulham falter
Millwall extended their 17-game unbeaten league run with a 1-1 draw at Sheffield United to remain in the final playoff place. It means that Wolves are promoted with four league games to spare and return to the top flight after a six-year absence.

Also, while recently on ESPN's The Jump, coach Steve Kerr was interviewed while Curry was shooting in the background and looked pretty good. Iguodala had three points, seven rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes.

San Antonio's success is due to its elite defense and bench production. The Warriors have lost six of those 10.

A California mother was drunk when she drove a vehicle carrying her wife and children off a cliff in a deadly crash last month. Cheryl Hart of Vancouver, Washington , was unable to reach her friend after the alarming text message was sent.

"We finally got back to defending", said Kerr. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has Golden State as co-favorites with Paul and the Rockets - the NBA's best team at 65-17 - just to win the Western Conference. They (Pacers) played better basketball than us, They came out with a better strategy. That just won't cut it against the Warriors. San Antonio has enough weapons to keep games close, but the Warriors' stellar outside shooting and the defensive and rebounding presence of Draymond Green should do enough to prevent the Spurs from winning more than a game. If the team wants to be competitive with the Warriors, they must get Lamarcus Aldridge more involved. The Warriors used the Spurs switching defense against them, forcing a smaller guy - Dejounte Murray, Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills - on Kevin Durant, and while the Spurs smalls pressured KD just shot over the top of them on his way to 16 first-half points on 10 shots. The Spurs with Kawhi and the Warriors without Curry would tip the scales in this series toward being somewhat level, or at least invite some suspense. San Antonio is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games versus Golden State.

Despite being cleared by Spurs medical staff two months ago, Leonard has continued to recover from an injury to his right quadriceps under the care of a medical team apart from the Spurs organization.

Despite the injuries, the Celtics are a good defensive team but they could have trouble scoring points.
