Although it's unrealistic to expect Thompson to repeat his efficient performance in Game 2, the Warriors will be deadly if he's able to contribute in a similar way throughout the playoffs. Instead, take the Warriors to cover the spread.
The explanations behind the far-less-than-stellar play all season (which still resulted in 58 wins, third-best in the NBA) were weird and ever-changing: the Warriors were both exhausted and conserving energy, confident and yet concerned.
It is not often an Andre Iguodala to JaVale McGee pass makes the highlights, but the two Warriors are feeling it in their series against the Spurs.
Could the Warriors "flip" the proverbial switch? "We did not end the season on a high note".
It takes one to know one. The three All-Stars took command in Game 1. One of these teams, the Golden State Warriors, has won two of the past three National Basketball Association championships and has looked invincible at times.
Brown won 47 games his first three seasons as the Sixers underwent the Process - and 52, plus Game 1 this season.
And given the way they played on Saturday, they might have sandbagged the entire league. And unlike previous year, the Warriors did not need to overcome a 25-point deficit in Game 1 following Leonard's injury. "You know, we want to get back to that, regardless of what everyone is saying", said Green after the match. "He's a special player and a big part of what we do, that's obvious".
The Warriors said all week it's a new season, then went out and showed it. The forward has only played in nine games during the season, but has been a vital cog in Spurs' Playoffs bid since being drafted in 2011. Miami also did a much better job of both getting back in transition defense and recognizing the shooting threats and getting out on them. Gregg Popovich is a masterful coach and if anyone can craft the changes needed to make it a closer game, it's him.
Starting Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray agreed with Popovich's "deer-in-headlights" assessment.
"I thought it was important for us to reestablish our defense", Kerr said. During that first half, the Warriors shot 59% from the field, while the Spurs were limited to a paltry 34%. All they had to do was care.
Warriors defense - That was more like it from the champs. "They brought it tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
Golden State's depth proved too much for San Antonio. With their starters on the floor, the Warriors didn't allow an offensive rebound, outscored San Antonio 16-6 in the paint and connected on 64 percent of their shots, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
"It ultimately comes down to players competing and bringing the effort". He was also a crucial piece in the team's 2014 NBA Championship run.
"We've got to regroup, feel hurt, upset, kind of desperate", veteran guard Manu Ginobili said.
Obviously, the Warriors have a better formula when Stephen Curry is healthy.
After limping into the playoffs, the Warriors powered to a 113-92 Game 1 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday afternoon.
