Warriors start fast, easily handle Jazz in Game 1 win

Warriors start fast, easily handle Jazz in Game 1 win

Golden State is the decided favorite in Game 2 and in the series, and Hill's absence only makes Utah's task more hard. After falling behind by as many as 17 earlier in the game, the Jazz actually cut the deficit to single digits late in the third quarter and trailed by just 11 at the quarter break. "But he's still been effective for us, particularly offensively because he's still making shots".

"We're going to have to be a lot better on the road", Snyder said. The Warriors have yet to lose a game in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. The time off did nothing to slow their momentum as the Warriors crushed the Jazz 106-94 on Tuesday to take a 1-0 lead. But the Jazz didn't have a scheme for taking the wheels off the Warriors' high-speed vehicle.

The Warriors also used their ball movement to accelerate their offense.

James Nets 39, Cavs Go Up 2-0
DeRozan will nearly certainly be better in Game 3 after going just two-of-11 from the field and scoring five points in Game 2 . Over a four minute stretch, he nearly single-handedly turned a seven point lead into nineteen and the Cavs never looked back.

Prior to the second-round series, ESPN's Chris Haynes reported the Warriors were disappointed they wouldn't play the Los Angeles Clippers because there's more to do in Los Angeles in their off-time.

Expect that to tighten up for Utah, but their larger problem moving forward might be their own offense - or the Warriors' defense, depending how you look at it. They've been working up to it - they had another 7 turnover performance in Game 3 against Portland - and they're managing it without dialing back their ball movement (32 assists on 40 made field goals).

Anyone that picked the Warriors to win the title has to be feeling pretty confident with their prediction through the first few weeks of the postseason. After two quarters, Golden State possessed a 15-2 advantage in points off turnovers. After Gobert's shove sent him into the seats, Green avoided retaliating with words or action, telling reporters later that he had encouraged the referees not to review the play so that the game could continue. Curry walked it off, received some treatment on the bench and claimed after the game that it was nothing. The Jazz started the third quarter off well only to see the Warriors go on a 9-0 run to open a 70-54 lead.

East finals trip on line as Wizards, Celtics head to Game 7
The Wizards havent been out of the second round since 1979, when the then-Bullets beat the Spurs to advance to the NBA Finals. At this point, the Wizards know the Celtics really well after playing 10 regular and postseason games with them so far.

You sometimes worry about a team with a long layoff before a playoff series against an opponent that's in a rhythm from playing more recently, but this Warriors squad always felt above all that. But if the Warriors are really interested in nightlife, we humbly offer a suggestion - Antelope Island.

However, he needs to do better than he did in Game 1 for Utah to have a chance in this series. Teams make adjustments - good teams make the right ones like the Warriors did in the 2015 Finals - and the series shifts. I can't tell you how many times Kerr, over the course of the season, talked about how stops tend to lead to made shots. "You know you're in the playoffs and you're supposed to be pumped anyway, but the vibe is just like, 'Man, let's just get out of here'". "But we'll get back to the drawing board and we'll be better in Game 2". Through five games, Green has more blocks (19) than fouls (15), a ratio that would make Tim Duncan proud.

"If you have those moments where you're not urgent enough, they just punish you for it", Snyder said. "He has a nice gamut of defensive skills and when he's confident, he just does a good job doing a lot of things".
