"I mean, they had poise but they also got pretty lucky too", Irving said, via Mass Live. "It hasn't been ideal, and we know we can still be better", Curry said about the Warriors' recent hot stretch, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. Their turnovers really could have hurt us.
After it was over, the Warriors were happy with the win but didn't outwardly celebrate any harder than they would have after any other game during the season.
WHAT WENT RIGHTAside from one notably ugly stretch in the third in which they barely scored, Boston matched the offense of Golden State nearly shot for shot. "We needed to be challenged and we were challenged big-time and it could have gone either way".
Steve Kerr was impressed by the Celtics. Both teams are on win streaks-nine in a row for the Dubs, six straight for the Cs-and rounding into the forms we've expected of them from Opening Night onward. "They're great defensively and they've got dynamic offensive players". But, Kerr said there are a "lot of great teams this year". "We'll forget about it in the morning, but for tonight everybody felt good coming in here, knowing we haven't played with this type of intensity in a long time, especially on the road".
While it took a little while for the Dubs to get cooking and the Celtics have been up and down to start the season, Saturday night's game in Boston still had considerable hype around it. He has averaged 10.8 points per game, down from 21.9 in his past year in Utah, and is shooting 31.7 percent from three-point range, down from the almost 40 percent of his shots he drained from beyond the arc in 2016-2017.
"I think with each month I feel more comfortable", Hayward told ESPN earlier this month. They will face the Indiana Pacers on Monday.
