Green shows range, leads Warriors past Jazz for 2-0 lead

Barnes signed with the team as a free agent on March 2.

The Golden State Warriors take a 2-0 series heading into Saturday as the Western Conference Semifinals series of the 2017 NBA Playoffs against the Jazz shifts to Salt Lake City. Stephen Curry added 23 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals. Brown said Game 2 was hard for the Warriors.

"We know we can play better", acting head coach Mike Brown said. "But for the most part, we did a good job of keeping our men in front and helping each other". We had 33 assists.

"We don't like them and they don't like us", Thomas said.

Golden State won the first quarter of its game 33-15 and put things on relative cruise control from there for a 115-104 win at Oracle Arena.

The biggest scare the Warriors survived in the game occurred early in the fourth period when Green fell to the court while trying an awkward driving shot against Jazz center Rudy Gobert. He was dearly missed, as Shelvin Mack got the start instead.

But it could only get them so far as the Jazz turned it over a ton themselves - 14 times, to be exact. Our spacing was a lot better.

But after the game, he said the knee just "locked up" a bit - something he said he dealt with before. "I had it before".

The Warriors kicked this one off on a 12-3 run in the first three minutes.

Curry extended his 3-pointers-made streak to an NBA-record 64 consecutive playoff games. The small break in the action didn't help the Jazz, either. The Warriors have to be happy that he's knocking down such a high percentage of his jumpers after he struggled during the regular season.

Green finished with 21 points on 7-for-13 shooting, including 5-for-8 on 3-pointers.

Green headed to the bench after the play, and as he did the power forward started taunting the Utah crowd.

For those of us who actually follow Hayward and the Jazz and know what kind of a dedicated competitor he is, The Brick lost all credibility right there.

The Jazz dirtied up the game like they wanted to, forcing Green into a technical foul in the first half which ignited a 17-4 run in favour of Utah. Each team had nine turnovers.

Whatever it is, it ended in the third quarter where the Jazz cut the lead to six. James Harden had 43 points in Game 3, but the Spurs clamped down on Houston's other shooters - Lou Williams, Eric Gordon, Ryan Anderson and Patrick Beverley shot a combined 6 for 31.

According to a report from ESPN's Ramona Shelbourne, that likely means he won't be around at all during their second-round series vs. the Jazz.

Which they did, in the third quarter!

The Utah Jazz has failed to get a lead in 96 minutes against the Warriors.

The Jazz need George Hill for Game 3 ... badly.

"I expect it to be a hostile environment", Green said. "Hopefully, we can do that at home". However, on the Warriors' next possession, Durant drew a double team in the post and returned the favor to his teammate by finding a cutting Iguodala under the basket for an easy two.

Sacramento native Matt Barnes was in uniform for the second time in the playoffs for the Warriors. In fact, he only had four isolation possessions so far in his four previous games in the playoffs, which is way down from his 5.3 iso possessions per game in the postseason a year ago.

The Warriors, who opened Game 1 with a 9-0 burst, were even better in the encore. So he didn't exactly agree with a reporter, who asked how he'd keep the Warriors focused after having not been challenged in the postseason.

The Golden State Warriors are a win away from the Western Conference Finals after outlasting the Utah Jazz in the National Basketball Association playoffs.
