Listen: Demarcus Cousins, Klay Thompson And Warriors discussed on The NBA Show
"Right there down at the end and then third quarter opens up and warriors just opened up the floodgates and, you know, the things sort of got away from the raptors pretty quick. Yeah. Eighteen oh in the second half twenty four zero one from the end of the second quarter into the third quarter and it was really just an explosive warriors performance, and I thought it was made all the more impressive by the fact that like Klay Thompson early on this was a slow shooting start for both teams. I think the raptors and the warriors started seven for twenty five combined for floor and really the only thing that the warriors had going for them early on was clay and then clay hurt. His hamstring was out for the rest of the game in the second half. We saw him in the bowels of the arena as we relieving and he was sort of doing like he was hobbling a little bit. But he was talking to a reporter, and it looked as I was reading the body language, as you know, don't worry about it. It's going to be fine, which is kind of what Steve. Curse said after the game where he's like Klay could be half dead and say he's going to be fine. So fingers crossed for if you're a warriors fan, or you're the warriors, hoping that he's going to be back because, you know as we've seen so far in the series oddly like the warriors need often. It's such it's such a strange thing to say that the warriors of all teams need offense but like they very much needed clay's performance tonight. Absolutely in the early going of the game. The only things they were able to really Bank on. We're him hitting, like challenge shots, really tough contested shots and getting to the free throw line a little bit. That was all that was really going. Steph didn't get off at all in the first quarter. You know there really wasn't a whole lot of other dynamism in the offense, and it was just Klay hit in a lot of tough shots early as the second quarter rolled on. That's when Steph started to pick it up and hit a few DeMarcus cousins able to get himself to the foul line, and things sort of opened up from there, particularly in the third quarter. When the warriors defense started forcing stops than, you know, grab the ball off the rim. Get out in transition dream on pushing DeMarcus cousins, thrown high low passes really smart cuts from dream and clay and the warriors offense started to look. The warriors offense where familiar with Steve Kerr said after the game you know, we started to look like ourselves again with DeMarcus cousins on the floor, which I think is a, a notable difference because that's something that we haven't seen a whole lot of really all season and certainly in the postseason since he had the early injury in round"
