THE RUB

  • Curry dominated Game 1, matching his postseason career high of nine 3-pointers finishing with 36 points as the Warriors strolled to a 116-94 home win on Tuesday.
  • Portland were average through all categories in Game 1, and along with better perimeter defense will need to work on cutting down turnovers (21 in Game 1) and be better from 3-point range (7-for-28).
  • The Warriors were 17-of-33 from 3-point range in Game 1.
  • Draymond Green had 10 rebounds in Game 1 to reach double digits for the 6th straight game.
  • The Warriors ranked 28th out of 30 teams in points off the bench during the regular season, and were outscored by an average of 55.7 ppg -29.7 ppg by the Clippers bench in Round 1. Steve Kerr will look more to his bench against Portland, who beat Denver in largely because of a 34.1 ppg – 25.1 ppg advantage in bench points.
  • Fool me once at home Golden State, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on me.
