San Antonio Spurs: 5 keys to series vs. Warriors

15 April 2018

Nick Kerr works for the San Antonio Spurs — the Warriors opponent in a Western Conference first round series. However, they went just 7-10 down the stretch as they were without superstar point guard Stephen Curry for 16 of those games due to ankle and knee injuries.

Since we've gone to seven games, the biggest upset that we've ever seen actually did involve the Golden State Warriors but a totally different iteration of them.

Now three years later, the Warriors enter the playoffs trying to overcome a poor end to the regular season, while likely playing the entire first round against the San Antonio Spurs without two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry.

The Warriors are now in second place in the Western Conference and would host the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first round if the season ended today.

Thursday Evening: Transition day tomorrow; Severe weather possible Saturday morning
Up to 2 1/2 inches of rain are possible , and a flash flood watch has been instituted for the region for Saturday . A wicked late winter storm will be moving through Northcentral Wisconsin over the next three days.

Overall, despite his team's recent struggles, Kerr said he feels good heading into Saturday's playoff opener.

Golden State Warriors' Javale McGee (1) guards against San Antonio Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge (12) in the third quarter of Game 1 of their National Basketball Association first-round playoff series at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

After the Warriors were blown out by the Utah Jazz 119-79 on Tuesday in their final game of the season, Durant discussed the team's rough sledding to finish. It's either going to bring the best of us and remind us of how hard we have to play or totally expose us and prove we're not ready for it. The blowout was the worst loss the Warriors have had all season, and the worst loss the Warriors have had in the regular season since Durant has joined the team. Murray can play suffocating defense and has the potential to take Cook completely out of the game.

The Spurs, who were without their star player; Kawhi Leonard, for most of the season, still managed to make it into the playoffs.

Khloe Kardashian's focus is on her newborn daughter - and not her boyfriend's cheating scandal, according to a report. Last June , Tyler was shocked when he showed up at Khloe Kardashian's house, who he has done a reading for before.

All-Star power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who has carried the Silver and Black on both ends of the court this season, had a tough time against the Warriors after Leonard went down past year.

"I haven't had any setbacks", Curry told the Warriors' broadcast crew. So you can fool yourself and think, 'Oh, we didn't win it this year, time to break it up, ' and you may never get that opportunity back again. Popovich has said that Nick Kerr is the subject of additional security screenings at work, just to ensure hes not a spy for the Warriors.

This is the first game of the playoffs this season. "All that business stuff, I have an agent for him to handle that and they can do their job".

Maybe we'll get a Cavaliers-Warriors final for the fourth year in a row. In three of their final four regular-season games, the Warriors surrendered at least 119 points. "We've been floundering quite a bit the last month, but, as I said, we know who we are". That is, to me, the only shot the Warriors have, game one, game two, any of the games.

It truly was a heartbreaking result for Manchester City , though the cardiovascular damage was hardly irreparable. The first leg will be at Anfield on April 24, with the return leg in Rome taking place the following week.

The Warriors hope that they'll have a comfortable lead in this series at that point and won't need Steph's services to close out the Spurs.
