Warriors move on with a sweep of the Trail Blazers

Warriors move on with a sweep of the Trail Blazers”

We have to look at that and understand that we got to be better. "It's going to be fun playing against these guys in the next few years".

The Golden State Warriors can get much needed rest before the second round by completing the sweep here. He played three tune up games as Golden State headed into the playoffs with the top record in the league. Klay Thompson added 18 points and three treys.

The Warriors, who joined the Cleveland Cavaliers as the first two teams to advance to the National Basketball Association playoffs second round this season, also welcomed back star forward Durant, who had missed Game 2 and Game 3 because of a strained left calf.

NEED TO KNOW: DeMar DeRozan was an active presence in Game 4 with 33 points and team-highs of nine rebounds and five assists.

WHAT'S NEXT: The Warriors now await the victor of the Clippers-Jazz first-round series. The time off should do wonders for the Warriors.

Durant got hurt at the end of February. "He always thinks about the group and I think he should be a little more selfish with him time and his body, but he wants to be around the group". Norman Powell, making his second start of the series, produced 25 points to help the Raptors move within one win of reaching the second round, with game six in Milwaukee.

Durant getting back to a hundred percent will be quite vital for Golden State's postseason success.

In Game 1, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum each went over 30 points and lead their team Blazers over Warriors. Kerr missed the last two games after symptoms from his back surgery two years ago suddenly flared up.

"We're very confident about who we are and how were going to be successful", Curry said. "I was able to manage the pain and discomfort over the past year and a half, and suddenly things got a lot worst and I don't know why".

"This past week, for whatever reason, things got worse, my symptoms got worse, and I was not able to coach" said Kerr, who missed the start of the 2015-16 season due to chronic pain as a result of the surgery.

Afterward, Curry said he gave the game ball to general Manager Bob Myers to give to Kerr, who stayed back at the team hotel because of illness.

That was followed by praise for James' teammates for their efforts, which then led into his best thoughts for Kerr.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts told reporters on Sunday that Nurkic was tender after the game but did not do further damage. Even though Brown may have to quickly transition himself to a new position, the Warriors are still the favorites to come out of the West.
