Golden State Warriors flip switch in Game 1 vs. Spurs

Kevin Durant is going to get paid by the Warriors

The San Antonio Spurs will be without Kawhi Leonard for game one of their first-round Western Conference playoff series against reigning National Basketball Association champions the Golden State Warriors. Cook is averaging 9.5 points, 2.7 assists and 2.5 rebounds this season for the Warriors. However, it was his defense that helped turn the tide for a unit that has struggled over the last month, posting a 106.8 defensive rating over the span. "That's what we think is going to happen", Kerr said. Over the last month, Cook has had his share of breakout performances notching five games with 20 or more points.

Hey, here's something we haven't heard before: The NBA playoffs are wide open.

It is generally accepted that the Warriors will perspire some, feel a degree of burn in their lungs, receive an urgency slap in the face and get pushed toward the edge of their defending championship throne once they play a team from Texas.

Kerr always said his team would be ready when these playoffs came around. "There's no way. He's being re-evaluated in three weeks, so we gotta be ready to play without him and see how he's coming along".

The Golden State Warriors are entering this first-round series without their best player, but that does not mean that their strategy will be drastically different.

Iguodala, who started just seven games all season before Saturday, had missed four of the final five regular-season games with a sore left knee. This should give Warriors fans a lot of optimism about their star point guard. Still, Cook took the demotion in stride.

"I let the team vote on whether they wanted him to stay in the room or not", Popovich said.

Both of these teams are great at blocking the ball.

The team waived Omri Casspi to make room for Cook on the Warriors playoff roster. "Guys aren't anxious about minutes, guys aren't anxious about starting, none of that". Thirty two of the Warriors' 44 baskets were assisted.

This is pretty impressive considering the fact that the Warriors have had to deal with a multitude of injuries this season.

But judging by these videos, Curry definitely looks like he's making progress from this unlucky injury.

With Curry's inevitable return bringing yet another lineup change, Cook isn't anxious.

"Damn", Cook said, shaking his head as he turned toward his locker stall. "We just tried to focus in on guarding our man, switching when he need to, boxing out, finishing a possession and then getting out and running". "I'm looking forward to hopefully making more progress as we look towards the playoffs".
