Golden State leads San Antonio by 1.5 games for the one seed; even if the Warriors fall to No. 2, they're probably not going to worry too much.
The Celtics knew they had to make life hard on the Warriors offense, and the trio of Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart and Jae Crowder took it a step further by making things downright miserable. He looked at me and starting doing whatever.
With his Warriors team having lost four of its past six games, head coach Steve Kerr made a calculated judgement.
Thoughts on the Ws? For Stephen Curry, it is not quite good enough to lift his team. Kelly f'ing Olynk. While it wasn't a team record, it was the most since their days playing at the Metrodome.
Minnesota is proving its evolution against some of the best in the National Basketball Association. Spurs looking better at 8-1 to win championship.
The Spurs will be short-handed as well. Without KD, our severely middle-of-road bench depth is wilting in the spotlight. I don't think he said anything either. Iguodala later clarified his remark to ESPN, saying it was in no way a shot directed at Kerr and that it was only an inside locker room joke.

He struck first with a curling free kick from the left flank that slipped inside Trapp's near post. Barcelona's heart will go on to the quarter finals of Europe's premier club competition.
But even sans Durant and with Curry struggling, they're an incredibly unsafe team. "It's just about committing to the game plan and getting it done, but we feel like we match up well with them". The Warriors beat the Hawks, 119-111. Dell Curry scored 12,670 points in his career. The Spurs are pushing them for the one seed in the Western Conference. "And you also learn from them".
Except when they're directed at the visiting 5-foot-9 point guard. Can't stand that guy. "I don't be wanting to miss free throws because they be saying that".
The Pelicans' win offset an impressive night from Marvin Williams, who had a season-high 27 points to go along with 10 rebounds for Charlotte. They prioritized defending the arc and the Warriors shot 6-of-30 from deep. Whether that will be in time to keep home court advantage is questionable. "That's what I'm thinking about at this point". It felt like we played great defense, but I guess we fouled Wiggins.
The two combined for just one, sad lonely point on 0-for-4 shooting, one assist, and two turnovers.
Speaking to nba.com about the hyper-extended knee he suffered, he said: "It could have been a lot worse, I hurt my knee". See, for instance, Spurs fans stressing about this version of their team.
Oh, and after Saturday's game against the Spurs, who will still put up one hell of a fight without Kawhi? Moreover, the Spurs' hot streak had some serious smoke and mirrors attached. Kerr consulted with his staff on which game to rest the Warriors' big players and they all settled on San Antonio.
