Sleepwalking Warriors snap to behind 'ultimate weapon' Durant

Sleepwalking Warriors snap to behind 'ultimate weapon' Durant

Warriors: Golden State looked to have flipped the switch toward the end of the regular season, but they had two poor efforts in their opening-round series against a tough Clippers team, and lost DeMarcus Cousins for the postseason in the process.

No. 1 Golden State Warriors vs.

For Golden State, they'll, like Kerr said, know what to expect.

Durant finished one point off Sleepy Floyd's National Basketball Association playoff record for points in a half with an insane 38 on 12 of 17 from the field and 10 of 10 from the line in the first half. While Durant is supposedly considering the Warriors, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.

As recently as this month, Kevin Durant tried to insist that he's not the type of player who goes out there and takes 23 shots a game.

Stephen Curry rolled his ankle in the first quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday but insisted he is "fine" ahead of their Western Conference semi-final series against the Houston Rockets.

The Clippers got as close as 12 in the first five minutes of the third quarter, but the Warriors pushed the lead back to 102-78 entering the fourth and kept the lead at double digits the rest of the way. "I thought I could have made a few more".

The four-time MVP specifically mentioned Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley and Montrezl Harrell, the three stars of the series for the Clippers. Williams scored eight points on 3-for-21 shooting, and Harrell was limited to 10 points. There's a real possibility that as good as the Rockets are playing that they dethrone the two-time defending champs.

When Rivers took over as Celtics coach in 2004, he noticed that the franchise's legendary players didn't come around or spend time with the team.

"I just play my game through it all", Durant said. Lawler has been the team's broadcaster for 38 of the past 40 years.
