Not only are they in the postseason yet again, but they are on a good pace. They have a lot of pride, a lot of standup guys on this team they're defeintely not going to quit.
Beyond that, there was nothing particularly unusual about the Warriors' eighth consecutive playoff victory. They are still a few pieces away from being able to dance with Golden State and the other big dogs in the West. The Warriors have surpassed the century mark each night against the team that ranked second in points allowed during the regular season. What time does the Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz Game 4 Start?
"Give our guys credit", Golden State acting coach Mike Brown said.
While the Warriors secured their seat in Round 2, they brought Portland's season to a brief ending. The Golden State leads the Game series against Utah jazz with 3-0.
Golden State is watching what the Cleveland Cavaliers are doing in the Eastern Conference. Portland wrapped up the year as the eighth place team of the Western Conference, with a record of 41-41. After all, they have both won exactly as many championships as the Seattle SuperSonics, Rochester Royals, Syracuse Nationals and St. Louis Hawks, just to name four defunct franchises, but they are acknowledged as the titans in a land of average-sized folks.
But that moment of pressure only refocused a Warriors team that proved far superior to the Jazz in the second round. The same may be applying to the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team the Warriors are familiar with, at least Draymond Green may think so.
Mourinho says top-four spot now beyond Manchester United
I am happy for them. "To have that record of winning so many matches is not normal". "The top four? Impossible ", Mourinho said. In further digs, Mourinho accused Wenger - misleadingly - of playing with a "defensive block" and "a line of five defenders".
That should change with Houston or San Antonio. Unfortunately, you will be needing an authentication with your cable provider should you want to watch Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz Game 4 live stream on Watch TNT. "That's kind of weak".
Golden State has methodically kept the Jazz at bay.
Reiter: The Cavs find a much more daunting road to the NBA Finals than the past two seasons, but get there nonetheless behind more LeBron James heroics.
But we all know what happened in last year's NBA Finals. That is a huge step forward, maybe faster than even they expected. Derrick Favors rammed a dunk on Draymond Green - the first time Green has rotated over, met an opponent at the rim and lost - and then electric young point guard Dante Exum hammered one home. The Jazz were a little more equipped but their trump card, Rudy Gobert doesn't look 100 per cent fit and they're off the back of a draining seven-game series.
But Golden State also forced the Jazz to shoot 32.4 percent in the second half, and Utah was just 5 for 17 in the fourth quarter. Shut down one component of Golden State's offense and another component instantly kicks into overdrive. Are the Warriors on pace to make the Finals?
