"We're in the same boat they kind of were in coming here".
Steph Curry struggled with illness, Klay Thompson left the game with a hamstring injury, and Kevin Durant missed his seventh straight game with a strained right calf, but somehow the Warriors kept Leonard and the Raptors at bay with a third quarter run that held for the game.
Kerr was joking. Half-joking.
Fred VanVleet scored 17 points for the Raptors, who had red T-shirts with their slogan "We The North" hanging on seats around the arena. We fought back, and we know that going towards Game 3 we've got to play a lot better, and it's going to be even harder on the road, but we're capable and we know what we bring to the table.
But while Toronto didn't get the job done Sunday, there wasn't a feeling of hopelessness emanating from the Raptor locker room. The Raptors were Kawhi-heavy in Game 2, relegated to depending on their best player because the others were inefficient.
All in all, Obama's Game 2 look follows a basic menswear formula we've endorsed forever: find a standout piece that works for you, buy it in multiples, and then surround it with simple, unimpeachable staples.
Trump Tells The UK to 'Walk Away' From Europe
The US President and First Lady will meet up with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall again in the late afternoon. And, despite President Trump's tetchiness, it is paramount that this is not forgotten at the start of another momentous week.
Nurse defended his last-minute defense - which essentially was a high-school box-and-one to make sure the ball got out of Curry's hands. In 19 postseason games, he has ramped up his production to 30.7 points, 8.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists per contest. The most impactful characteristic the Warriors have acquired over this run is experience.
These conceivably could be the final two games at Oracle Arena ever played if the series ends in five games as the Warriors move into new San Francisco digs next season.
They had a tough time finding the basket early but Curry and Thompson got loose late in the second quarter to send Golden State into the break trailing by five points. "We were in a trap and rotating out of there, and again, I would like to go back and try that again about 10 times, and see if one of them doesn't go our way".
"I think our guys felt renewed life at that point and came out and just had a great run to take control of the game, and we were able to finish it out from there". "We got to go out there and get one".
You'll ruin the memory and they likely won't sleep anyway. The Warriors have a "next man up mentality", Quinn Cook said after the game. The series returns to Toronto for Game 5.
