Warriors Roster & Starting Lineup Without Steph Curry

Kevin Durant is going to get paid by the Warriors

Kevin Durant is going to get paid by the Warriors

A week before, the Warriors were beaten by the Indiana Pacers, 126-106, making their coach Steve Kerr mad as he blasted his team for a "pathetic" effort, saying that they did not care.

After losing 10 of their last 17 games of the regular season, the Golden State Warriors shifted to playoff mode Saturday. But Curry's absence will force Durant to be more aggressive. Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green all also felled by multi-game and/or multi-week ailments in March, while others like Patrick McCaw and Andre Iguodala have yet to play in April thanks to injuries of their own.

Well, the playoffs are here and San Antonio star small forward Kawhi Leonard isn't. After the Spurs lost Kawhi Leonard for essentially the entire season and barely scrapped their way into the seventh seed, the series holds significantly less promise.

During their last five games, the Warriors have scored an average of 106.6 points per game (6.9 below their season average) and allowed an average of 115.6 points per game (8.1 above their season average).

"JaVale was great", Kerr said. As of Saturday morning, 55 percent of public bets are coming in on host Golden State. McGee brings four more inches and therefore made it tough for Aldridge, who managed only 14 points and was mainly a ghost. The Warriors are clearly the better team and should be able to overpower the Spurs. Not a good outside shooter yet, Murray nevertheless forays into the paint and gets out in transition, utilising pull-ups and floaters which are not inefficient, but which do need defending. What Kevin did shows who he is, shows what he's about and I think it's clear that that's winning. Look for Aldridge to make a huge impact and the Spurs to stay within the eight points even if they don't record the straight up upset victory.

Kevin Durant is expected to pick up the scoring slack with Steph Curry sidelined. "He can play point (guard), one through three, sometimes he plays the four for us". "I can pretty much unequivocally say, without it, we're not looking at the team we have right now". Golden State has been playing low-energy basketball for most of the year as they wait for the postseason to begin.

First, we've (potentially) 105 games left in this year's playoffs and it's far from certain the finals will be a repeat of the last three finals.

"We played well. We played hard". "He kept Stephen Jackson from beating me up, that was his main role", Popovich said.

This will not be the same dominant Warriors and the series could be closer and go six or seven games, but there's a reason why the Warriors are heavy favorites.
