Warriors take 2-0 series lead on Blazers, win without Durant

21 April 2017, 08:48 | Joan Schultz

The Warriors learned how to play without Durant during the 19 games he was out with an unrelated left knee injury.

Sprinkled into the 81-point defensive masterpiece were the efforts of Javale McGee and Patrick McCaw.

For a second consecutive game, Curry and Thompson were largely ineffective - combining for only 35 points on 34 percent shooting. The duo combined for only 7 long-range attempts, making just one.

Durant injured the calf during a Game 1 victory Sunday, when he had 32 points and 10 rebounds in his playoff debut for Golden State. But tonight we didn't really get it going much or consistently throughout the game. With just over four minutes of playing time, McGee followed close behind, matching Steph Curry and Zaza Pachulia with six.

Meyers Leonardhad an embarrassing shift in the first half - Blazers coach Terry Stotts pulled him after only 22 seconds when he surrendered an easy alley-oop to McGee.

Golden State recorded their 11th straight home win over the Trail Blazers, and the 12th win in their last 13 head-to-heads, including a 4-1 triumph in last year's Western semi-finals.

Head coach Steve Kerr hopes to have everyone back at full strength by Game 3 on Saturday.

Trail Blazers: The Blazers' third-quarter scoring output was their lowest in any period this season - and tied for the fewest in a quarter by a Warriors playoff opponent in the shot clock era.

The Warriors made the prudent move on Wednesday, about 90 minutes before game time. There was no answer for Javale McGee (seriously) who finished with 15 points on 7-7 shooting.

"I wasn't exhausted", Westbrook said. Westbrook's 18 shots in the fourth quarter were more than any of Thunder player attempted during the game. "I thought in the third quarter we settled our offense down which helped our defense". McGee might just be scratching the surface of what he's capable of. The outlet went on to add, "this much is certain: no one or two or even three players can give what Durant does". McCollum had 11 points and shot 4 for 17.

Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 27 points and 10 rebounds, and Dennis Schroder scored 23 points but Dwight Howard had only seven rebounds, half his game one total, and six points.

"I miss being out there with them and hopefully I'm out there the next game".

David West was no slouch, either, as he continued to pass brilliantly, most especially to Ian Clark, with whom West has a special connection. [McGee] made a huge impact.

"He was wonderful all over the court for us (Wednesday)", Warriors forward Draymond Green said. We need a center who can lock down the entire area under the 3-point line on his own (and yes, there's a guy who fits the bill). "And they came through". Golden State hitting threes freed up the heretofore-struggling Klay Thompson from mid-range. The Blazers, particularly without center Jusuf Nurkic, can't win if Lillard and McCollum are bottled up. It's not fair to draw a direct contrast because the Warriors started the back-to-back Most Valuable Player, the likely Defensive Player of the Year and arguably the best two-way shooting guard in the league, but it was striking to see Portland trot out a gimmicky lineup of Lillard, McCollum, Pat Connaughton, Allen Crabbe and Al-Farouq Aminu in the first quarter.
