Warriors dominant defensively in Game 2 rout of Blazers

Steph Curry didn't shoot well. Kevin Durant didn't shoot at all. Klay Thompson didn't pick up the offensive slack. But the Golden State Warriors didn't need their injured all-world forward …

Blazers shoot blanks in lopsided loss

Blazers shoot blanks in lopsided loss On a night when Kevin Durant didn’t suit up, and when Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson played like mere mortals, the Portland Trail Blazers had a terrific chance to climb back into this first-round playoff series. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum combined for 75 points Sunday, scoring on a dazzling array of jumpers and graceful forays into the lane. The Blazers no doubt remember how they threatened the Warriors in last year’s Western Conference semifinals. After losing the first two games in Oakland, the Blazers rolled to victory in Game 3 and...

With Durant out, Curry will have to step up

With the Warriors Kevin Durant out for Game 2 of the playoffs, one would expect the team’s original MVP, Steph Curry, to step into the void and carry the scoring load against Portland. Curry caught fire and looked like the world-beating point guard he had become during back-to-back MVP seasons. Alongside Curry, the Warriors will need fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson to return to form after a tough performance in Game 1. Durant is hobbled, and head coach Steve Kerr smartly chose not to risk further injury against a Trail Blazers team that is also less than full strength. Curry looked...

Stotts: Warriors still potent without Durant

Portland head coach Terry Stotts, reacting to the news that Kevin Durant will not play Wednesday night, was quick to point out how well the Warriors played when Durant missed 19 games this season with a knee injury. Durant averaged 29.3 points in four regular-season games this season against the Blazers. The Warriors still have plenty of firepower, obviously, with guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Asked if the Warriors play any differently without Durant, Stotts said, I think they play the same style.

Warriors’ Klay Thompson looks to bounce back from rough Game 1

For more than 20 minutes after Warriors practice Tuesday, Klay Thompson, his shirt drenched in sweat, worked through shooting drills with assistant coach Chris DeMarco. The backcourt duo, feasting on a mix of floaters, layups and three-pointers, combined for 75 of the Trail Blazers’ 109 points. Thompson was as big a reason as anyone the Warriors reached their second straight NBA finals last year. Later, in Game 6 of the conference finals against Oklahoma City, he set an NBA playoff record with 11 made three-pointers. Two weeks after his Bulldogs fell to North Carolina in the national...

CJ McCollum’s Scoring Explosion Matched By His Tenacious Defense

CJ McCollum’s Scoring Explosion Matched By His Tenacious Defense

McCollum is one of the league’s best offensive players, but his stellar defense in Game 1 quietly shined too. The analysis flew in following the Blazers' loss in Game 1 of their Western Conference playoff series with the Golden State Warriors. CJ McCollum’s surprisingly effective defense, in particular, drew attention from national writers. Jack Winter of FanRagSports did a nice job breaking down many of McCollum’s defensive possessions and the work he put in slowing down Klay Thompson. That McCollum and Lillard combined for 75 points on Sunday overshadowed their...

Durant busts loose for 32 in Warriors playoff debut

Durant busts loose for 32 in Warriors playoff debut The Warriors played their 65th postseason game of the Stephen Curry-Klay Thompson Era on Sunday - and their first with a guy named Kevin Durant. Durant scored a team-high 32 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in his Warriors playoff debut. Durant seemed fine in those glorified warm-up acts, but now the games really count. Sunday marked the 92nd postseason game of Durant’s career, and his first while not a member of the Thunder. The Warriors ultimately did win, pulling away from Portland in the fourth quarter. The Warriors thrive on...
