NBA PLAYOFFS -- Warriors beat Jazz 115 - 104, take 2-0 ​series ​lead


PhilBoxing.com




OAKLAND​ -- The Golden State Warriors came out firing in front ​of a ​r​a​u​cous ​capacity crowd​, taking an early 12-3 lead ​on the way to a 115-104 Game 2 win over the Utah Jazz Thursday night at the Oracle Arena.

​Draymond Green hit 4-of-5 triples as the Warriors opened up a 33-15 bubble after one quarter of action. But with Gordon Hayward scoring 12 points, the Jazz outscored the Warriors 32-27 in the second quarter to cut their deficit to 60-47 at the half.

​With the win, the Warriors have remained unbeaten in these playoffs and they now lead the Jazz 2-0 in their best-of-7 Western Conference semifinals.

Game 3 shifts to Utah on Saturday night (Sunday AM in Manila).​


It is only game two of the series and it is apparent that there is no history between the two teams, lack of bad blood perhaps? Mutual respect maybe?

Whatever it is​, it​ ended in the third quarte​r ​where ​ ​t​he Jazz cut the lead to six. ​But with their cheering fans behind him, the encouraged Warriors roared back to life ​as Steph Curry threw a heads up pass to ​Andrew ​Igoudala who caught​ it, ​dribbled behind his back before giving a no-look pass for a Kevin Durant slam.​

Despite an epic performance from Gordon Hayward​,​ leading all scorers with 33 points on 11 of 21 shooting from the field​ along with​ 5 rebounds and 4 assist​s,​ the Jazz c​ouldn't ​ overcome​ an 18-point third quarter deficit.​

Rudy Gobert scored 16 points and 16 rebounds, but Joe Johnson ​scored just ​eight points and three assist​s.​

Warriors ​got 25 points, 11 boards and 7 dimes​ from Durant ​ ​while ​Green finished with 21​. ​Green went down in the 4th quarter holding on to his knee​, but he came back to help seal the deal.​

Stephen Curry added 23 points​.(RPM)
