Deliberate Jazz try to slow down Warriors in 2nd round

Although Gobert, a 7-footer, isn't built for perimeter excellence, he can hold his own against most players. (Watch that sick move here).

Nick Maneotis, a 31-year-old construction worker, shot back at Barnes while watching Game 1 Tuesday night at a Salt Lake City restaurant: "Matt Barnes should focus more on basketball than nightlife".

Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry (30) scores against the Utah Jazz during the first half in Game 1 of an NBA basketball second-round playoff series, Tuesday, May 2, 2017, in Oakland, Calif.

Golden State came out quickly, scoring the game's first nine points and never looked back.

The Clippers have a bad recent record against Golden State, having lost all four regular-season games in 2016-17 and getting no closer than within 10 points in any of them.

So the general summary: The Warriors were hardly at their best, and yet they were still hardly challenged in Game 1.

"They definitely do it by committee", added Steph Curry. The Jazz have had more success controlling tempo against the Warriors than any other team over the past two seasons, something they will surely need to do if they are to spring the upset.

Utah is a heavy underdog and certainly can not pull off an upset without more from its best players.

Although Trubisky left North Carolina as the most accurate passer in Tar Heels history, he only started 13 games while in college. Lynch confirmed the 49ers had other offers. "If we want to be great, you just can't sit on your hands", Pace said.

Thompson and Green are the only starters with that key second unit. "But as far as nightlife, there's no comparison to nightlife in Utah and L.A".

Gordon Hayward, who played so well in the series against the Clippers (23.7 ppg), but has struggled throughout his career against the Warriors (12.6 ppg on 38.6 percent shooting), had another tough outing, scoring 12 points on just 4 of 15 shooting and 2 of 9 from 3-point range.

In Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Utah Jazz, the Warriors often only lead by about 10 points and still felt like they controlled the game for 48 minutes.

Still, this was a pretty thorough performance.

After Draymond Green closed the third quarter with a pair of free throws that made it an 11-point game, the Warriors produced a 10-0 burst to start the final period. The Warriors dismantled Portland in a four-game sweep and haven't played since April 24, waiting to find out their opponent.

"It's hard to figure out a plan for a guy not to foul out in 13 minutes in Game 7 of a playoff series", Snyder said. And this is how they move through the playoffs.

Utah did decent against the Warriors during the regular season, but not overly awesome as they lost the first contest in a close fight, were blown out in the second, then won the third in what was essentially a meaningless contest for Golden State.

The Warriors were festive on a night they acknowledged the "We Believe" team from the 2007 postseason.
