Warriors Roster & Starting Lineup Without Steph Curry

  • Report Kevin Durant will opt out of contract this summer to sign restructured deal

In Saturday's 113-92 win over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the Western Conference first-round playoff series, Kerr exhibited the habit once more, inserting Iguodala at point guard ahead of Quinn Cook to bolster the team's defense while easing Cook's transition into his first postseason. But hey, it worked.

The San Antonio Spurs will not have forward Kawhi Leonard (return from injury management) back for Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors after all. They are one of the top rebounding teams in the league with an offensive rebound percentage of 23.7.

The playoff tipoff was all about the Warriors re-establishing their muscle flex and their defense and most importantly, their aura, even with Steph Curry still out and ailing, because the rest of the National Basketball Association was watching. San Antonio visited Golden State for the third time in as many months. As we know, the Warriors will be without Stephen Curry for at least the first round. Cook is averaging 9.5 points, 2.7 assists and 2.5 rebounds this season for the Warriors.

Gay had 15 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge and Bryn Forbes added 14 apiece for the Spurs, who fell into the No. 7 seed when they lost their regular-season finale at New Orleans to complete a 47-35 regular season.

San Antonio's success is due to its elite defense and bench production.

Cook was a two-way player for the Warriors, meaning he split time between the Santa Cruz Warriors (G-League affiliate) and Golden State.

Double teams flew toward Aldridge in the post, and Golden State's defense rotated on a string to stifle any ball movement.

Niko Kovac To Succeed Jupp Heynckes As Bayern Munich Coach
It's not enough for Bayern to simply win the league, or even the double or the treble - it has to be done in a certain style, too. Kovac, who won the 2002/03 league and cup double as a Bayern player, was appointed Eintracht Frankfurt in March 2016.


"In your mind, you're telling yourself, 'We've got to be better, we've got to do better, '" associate head coach Mike Brown said. The Warriors put up 32 assists, compared to the Spurs mere 19, with 11 of these assists coming from Draymond Green and seven from Kevin Durant. "Still, it's hard sometimes mentally and physically to get to the level of these teams where they're fighting just to get into the playoffs".

"With the last month, having so many injuries, we've had so many funky lineups that we don't usually practice or they aren't ideal lineups just because of the circumstances this past month", Cook said.

Golden State is 2-3 ATS with 3 overs and 2 unders over their last five games.

Kerr's son, Nick, is on the Spurs staff and the team jokingly voted him out of the film room Friday for fear of him sharing Spurs secrets with the enemy.

"I'm all about the team", Cook said.

And Leonard has been ruled out of Saturday's opener against the Warriors.
