George Hill out for Jazz-Warriors Game 2 with toe injury

George Hill out for Jazz-Warriors Game 2 with toe injury

But a 9-0 run by Golden State put the Warriors back up by 16.

Ironically enough, on a night in which the Warriors will honor the "We Believe" team at Oracle Arena, they will also open the second round of the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs against the same Utah franchise that bested them 10 years earlier.

Also, the Jazz fans those who all living at Utah can watch this Game 1 on TNT and listen to KZNS.

Fiddling with the mouth guard he began using after losing one of his front teeth in Game 1, Thomas had nine points in overtime, when the Celtics outscored Washington 15-5. Having been switched onto Curry following a screen, the 7-1 Frenchman was in the almost impossible position of having to defend one of the NBA's craftiest dribblers at the three-point line.

While it is too early in the series to draw firm conclusions, there were some important elements from this game that will factor into the direction of the rest of the series.

Game 2 in the best-of-seven series is to be played today at Oracle Arena, where it is a night of nostalgia as Golden State plan to honor their 2007 "We Believe" team who ended a 13-year playoff drought and stunned Dallas in the first round.

Despite the injury, Curry finished second among Warriors players with a 20.2 nERD in the win, per numberFire Live.

Hill hit only three of nine shots and scored just seven points in the Game 1 blowout loss to the Warriors.

In other words, the Jazz are a great three-point shooting team overall, but they have to start playing like one. Gordon Hayward averaged 23.7 points and 7.3 rebounds per game to lead Utah in the playoff series. "I think the key thing for us is to set the bar high as far as competitiveness and endurance and go from there".

Golden State Warriors Lineups: PG Stephen Curry, SG Klay Thompson, SF Kevin Durant, PF Draymond Green, C Zaza Pachulia.

How do you get a 7-foot-1 monster Defensive Player of the Year candidate spinning like a rinse cycle? The double-digit deficits the Warriors have allowed themselves sometimes this season are a luxury they can't enjoy from this point on in the playoffs.

Steph Curry was back to his arrogant ways with the basketball in his hands Tuesday, adding possible defensive player of the year victor Rudy Gobert to his victim list. If the Warriors have a similar cold stretch or lack of focus, the Jazz should be able to hold onto the leads that the Blazers gave up. The only opportunity they have in the series is if they can take away one of the big 3 or their bench explodes for 40 or more points per game. Utah was turning the ball over like insane, and Golden State was getting their quick shots in transition. Because Vegas never fails to produce examples of degenerate behavior, there are indeed massive bets on the Warriors, both to win the series and win Game 1. Then, there are some big bets on the Warriors' series price.
