Warriors' Postgame Comments Following Game 1 Win Over Jazz

Curry is not expected to miss any time in Game 2.

The Warriors absolutely deserve all the credit in the world for how well they played in Game 1 and being able to blowout the Jazz despite not hitting their shots from deep either.

Jazz center Rudy Gobert is one of the best defenders in the league, but he's not a miracle worker. So the only question was whether his defense would be up to snuff with this unit.

The Golden State Warriors look for another victory to take a quick 2-0 lead. "Whenever you never stop moving in the National Basketball Association, you're going to find baskets like he does, and he's a great finisher around the rim".

What are the chances that the Jazz are up to that task? If Game 1 is any indication, Draymond will look to take full advantage of whoever is across from him in this series.

The Warriors are actually undefeated when playing at a slower pace, but that's in a sample size of just three games.

For example it was a 12 point game at halftime, mainly because Utah responded to a Golden State run by finishing the 2nd quarter 5-0.

"It's very frustrating that he can't play tonight", Jazz forward Gordon Hayward told reporters. "Every game matters. Every single possession matters. During that time, I felt like that was on display". "I think what distinguishes him is that he's really good on the ball, really active, and he really likes to mix it up around the rim. You're chasing a championship". Fewer people might have noticed that they were the second-best defense, behind only San Antonio.

How fitting much of the "We Believe" team was in the house one day shy of the 10-year anniversary of eighth-seeded Golden State's first-round upset of the No. 1 seed Mavericks.

Hill enjoyed a healthy 2015-16 season with the Indiana Pacers, but his first year with the Jazz has been marred by a slew of injuries, including thumb and toe ailments along with a concussion.

"For us, it's as much a mindset as anything in trying to attack them", Snyder said. The Warriors can do that too, of course, but their personnel can also wreck an opponent's offensive plans. Not only did the Warriors keep their turnover number low, they also forced the Jazz to commit 14 of their own, and Golden State outscored Utah 20-4 in points off turnovers in the contest. The ball kept hopping from player to player, even off of made Utah baskets, because the Warriors remained committed - from buzzer to buzzer - to executing their gameplan. Jazz big man Boris Diaw was in the paint in between Green and JaVale McGee. They weren't sharp from 3-point range while going 7 for 29, with Klay Thompson making three of those on the way to 15 points.

Salt Lake City tourism officials playfully jabbed back at Golden State Warriors players who bemoaned the lack of nightlife in Utah, hoping to combat the predominantly Mormon state's reputation as a boring place where it's tough to get a drink.

"Anything is possible for this team", Green said". Through five games, Green has more blocks (19) than fouls (15), a ratio that would make Tim Duncan proud. "They came out firing and knocked us back a little bit". When Golden State isn't coughing up the ball, it's almost unstoppable. They would make it a 18-17 game with 2:55 left in the quarter. "I'll be better tomorrow", Gobert said. "The experiences they got from the season when George was out will help them out".

More intriguing match-ups and greater scrutiny are coming, but for now the Warriors should relish their low-key postseason launch and the defensive intensity that's made it possible.
