No fun in Utah? Jazz fans turn tables on Warriors' razz

Frederick Owens | 06 May, 2017, 08:05

Golden State is the decided favorite in Game 2 and in the series, and Hill's absence only makes Utah's task more hard.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry shoots a layup against the Utah Jazz during the second half in Game 1 of the second round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at Oracle Arena on May 2, 2017 in Oakland, California.

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.

The Golden State Warriors were the hare, and the Utah Jazz were the tortoise.

To be quite honest, if I had been told prior to the game that the Jazz would hold the Warriors to under 25 percent shooting from three, I would have felt really optimistic about Utah's chances to arise victorious.

Curry scored 22 points in three quarters of work and the top-seeded Warriors warmed up in a hurry after a weeklong layoff between playoff games, beating the Jazz 106-94 on Tuesday night.

"I'll keep enjoying it".

Interim coach Mike Brown led the Warriors as they are missing reigning NBA Coach of the Year Steve Kerr, who wasn't at the arena as he deals with complications from a pair of back surgeries almost two years ago.

Shaun Livingston returned to action after missing the previous three games with a finger injury. There were a few times during the game when Gordon Hayward, Joe Ingles, and other members of the Jazz got Golden State's bigs other than Green and Kevin Durant to switch onto them on the perimeter, and then just settled for a jumper. "It was a bunch of guys that just got together and liked playing; liked competing".

"It was just a remarkable thing that we did that year, and unexpected", Nelson said.

The Golden State Warriors sure did theirs, using that up-tempo, pass-happy style to run right by the Utah Jazz in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. The players least associated with the Warriors' fleet-footed terror - like Zaza Pachulia - found ways to get out and ahead of Utah's defense for easy baskets. They only attempted 12 free throws and made just 9-of-29 3-pointers.

The Warriors outscored the Jazz 29-6 on the break and committed only seven turnovers, matching a franchise playoff-low.

"It's been sore. He's been playing through it", Snyder said. They were able to do all of this despite the absence of their head coach Steve Kerr, who is out indefinitely with a back-related illness, according to team officials and reports.

He also missed the final two games of the Portland series. So the only question was whether his defense would be up to snuff with this unit. Draymond kept Joe Johnson mostly in check whenever he matched up with him, and the Jazz received minimal contributions from their frontcourt.

The Warriors struggled from 3-point territory on Tuesday and, by their standards, got off to a slow start after a week spent waiting for the Jazz to wrap up their series with the Clippers. Current Warriors forward Matt Barnes was part of that team, and he checked in with four minutes remaining to a rousing ovation after being sidelined since April 8 with a sprained right foot and bone bruise.
