NBA Playoffs: Breaking down the Spurs-Warriors series

  • One Cleveland Cavaliers player didn't vote for Le Bron James in a poll for MVP

Curry is scheduled to be re-evaluated on Saturday, three weeks after he sustained the sprained MCL.

Stephen Curry is inching closer to a return, but it sounds like he'll need the Warriors to survive their first-round playoff series to make it happen.

"What does being a leader mean?"

"They're going to bring out the best in us, or they're going to completely expose us", Kerr said Friday of the Spurs. "It really didn't do anything for me". It makes them feel like part of the team because they put it out, they get loud, they get proud.

"I'm not sure how to explain it well", Morey said.

Durant has been considered the Warriors "leader" for obvious reasons. He also has averaged 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists.

Kevin Durant is expected to pick up the scoring slack with Steph Curry sidelined. "If I knew, he'd be here". "It's hard. When you play them, there's nothing easy. Every year is a new year and we're locked in". "I'm ready for the rodeo", exclaimed Arianna Tillman, who got some swag for her grandmother.

The high from watching DeMarco, nine years removed from his last game at Dominican University of California, rise up to hush the taunts of Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson about his supposedly diminished athleticism didn't last long enough to prevent the Warriors from suffering an embarrassing 40-point defeat to the Jazz in their regular-season finale that night.

"He's grown", Green said of Durant.

Kerr added: "I want Pop to win against anybody else. Draymond sees the game, defensively, steps ahead", his college coach, Tom Izzo, told me by phone.

"I do, I do", Kerr said on The Jump.

Instead, Durant has tried to exert his leadership in other ways. With arguably having no perennial All-Star on their roster, Popovich has somehow managed take the Spurs to the 7th Spot in a very tough Western Conference and has once again shown why he is considered one of the greatest coaches of All-Time. "He likes people", Bell said.

Around him, the unlikely trio of Pau Gasol, Rudy Gay and Kyle Anderson also thrive in the mid-range and in. Agreeing to such terms allowed the team to retain forward Andre Iguodala and backup point guard Shaun Livingston.

"He holds guys accountable".

The Golden State Warriors are entering this first-round series without their best player, but that does not mean that their strategy will be drastically different.

Those examples reminded Kerr of how the former Phoenix Suns general manager saw former Suns guard Steve Nash handled that role. He can guard nearly every position and can do nearly everything required of him; he fits into the Warriors' system wherever and whenever he is called upon, whether it be jumping to the sky to block shots or patiently giving crisp passes to shooters coming off of screens. They know how good they are.

Maybe the Golden State Warriors, opening the postseason without Stephen Curry or any momentum, won't be the best of the West, where there's a Houston team that can run and gun as well as they do. Warrens led 20-16, 40-31 and 56-53 after the first three quarters before scrambling a win against the struggling Sonics side who are clearly missing the big man Akeem Marsh now overseas on a professional stint.
