Explain One Play: How GSW traps LaMarcus Aldridge

Watch the chess match as the Warriors double-team Spurs star LaMarcus Aldridge. The Spurs counter with new schemes, and the Warriors have to counter the counters!  Co-starring great defensive hustle by Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala and Kevin Durant. As GSOM’s Hugo Kitano wrote: Aldridge averages more than twice the amount of points as the Spurs’ second leading scorer, Rudy Gay(not including Kawhi Leonard’s nine-game regular season stint). Aldridge is a volume scorer who’s been pretty decently efficient this year. Aldridge is shooting a career-high 57.0% True...

The Warriors’ super big lineup is their key to surviving without Curry

The Warriors’ super big lineup is their key to surviving without Curry

Starting Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson at the guard spots gives them the size and athleticism to play elite defense. The Warriors aren’t the same team without Stephen Curry. They simply cannot replicate his shooting and gravity, and their offensive ceiling is greatly lowered. But the Warriors are still a very good team, and have elite defensive potential. But due to more injuries and a lack of focus, we didn’t see much of it in the regular season. In Game 1, Steve Kerr decided to start Andre Iguodala instead of Quinn Cook, hoping to start the game with defensive intensity. In first...

Warrior Wonder: Klay Thompson ignites the charge

Warrior Wonder: Klay Thompson ignites the charge

After the Warriors started off slow in the first half, Klay Thompson was out to get buckets tonight. It was a cold, stormy day in the Bay Area. A hail storm swept over the Oakland morning as pellets rained from the heavens like tiny little basketballs. The weather was just foreshadowing what was to come later in the evening. Game Two, Oracle Arena, Oakland, California. Klay Thompson summoned the skies and put together his own hail storm with a magnificent performance last night as the Warriors bested the Spurs in Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs. With a stat line of 31 points,...

Dominant Warriors win Game 2 over a prideful Spurs team

Dominant Warriors win Game 2 over a prideful Spurs team

Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson crank up the firepower to finish an energized Spurs team. Last night, as I enjoyed the Golden State Warriors’ thrilling 116-101 knockout of the San Antonio Spurs, I had to marvel at the professional rivalry between these two clubs. The Warriors attempted to break San Antonio’s spirit from the get-go, yet the Spurs tenaciously weathered the early storm. When the Spurs fired back some painful salvos of their own, I knew we had game on our hands. This was one of the more fascinating contests in the Warriors recent run of domination. Let’s take a look at...

Klay Thompson isn’t bothered by the Warriors’ doubters

Klay Thompson was unbothered by the criticism surrounding the Golden State Warriors before the start of their postseason run, having gone a questionable 7-10 during the last stretch of the season, hindered by the absence of their leader, Stephen Curry, who is out with a Grade 2 sprained MCL. Asked if he’s read any of […] The post Klay Thompson isn’t bothered by the Warriors’ doubters appeared first on ClutchPoints.

The Warriors take a 2-0 series lead, defeating the Spurs 116-101

Durant and Klay combine for 63 points to help lead the Warriors to a win in Game 2 of this playoff series. The Golden State Warriors took a 2-0 series lead against the San Antonio Spurs with a 116-101 win. Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson lead the charge for the team, scoring 32 and 31 points respectively. Despite playing a more competitive game this time around and getting great games from LaMarcus Aldridge and Patty Mills, the Warriors continued to demonstrate that they just have too much firepower for the Spurs to keep up with for four quarters. Next game will be in San Antonio however...

Key Matchup: What are the Spurs going to do about Durant & Thompson?

The Spurs are going to have to discover a solution to Golden State’s main scorers, because there isn’t one apparent right now This isn’t going to exactly blow anyone’s mind, but I’m going to go ahead and say it: Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are going to be a real problem for the San Antonio Spurs in this series. The Warriors don’t have Stephen Curry, but the mismatches are effectively sending the Spurs’ defense scrambling as if we did. The problem is two-fold. First of all, the Spurs’ defense just doesn’t have the personnel to adequately cover both Durant and...
