After a week off, Curry, Warriors roll past Jazz in Game 1

Hill struggled in Utah's 106-94 loss in Game 1, scoring just seven points on 3-of-9 shooting.

The Golden State are the favorites to win the series and the team are going to give the Jazz their biggest test yet on the court.

This is nothing new for a Utah squad that used 23 different starting lineups throughout the 82-game season because of injuries and illnesses.

In his first home game since injuring his calf April 16, Kevin Durant scored 17 points on 7-of-17 shooting.

The 31-year-old Hill is now in the midst of his first season as a member of the Jazz after previously splitting his National Basketball Association career between both the San Antonio Spurs and Indiana Pacers.

Ducks exorcise their Game 7 demons and rally to defeat Oilers
Playing in Game 7 at home for the fourth straight season, Anaheim has been outscored 8-0 in the first period of those games. Even though 97 was kept off the scoresheet in that 7-1 rout, he was as risky as ever and teams have to respect that.

"Anytime you take your point guard off your team, that's a position that's very hard to replace on a lot of levels", Snyder said.

"It's been sore. He's been playing through it", Snyder said. During the regular season, the Warriors outscored opponents by 20.8 points per 48 minutes according to NBA.com, an insane number when you consider McGee's past ineffectiveness despite his physical profile. "So if you can get him out and make him guard some guards and some wings and try to make him uncomfortable in those situations, I think it's to our advantage". "We're floating around some really good ideas (for potential events this weekend)". Yet the Jazz were shorthanded, too, missing Gordon Hayward and Rodney Hood. "Are we going to feel drained?" A team dubbed "We Believe" reinvigorated a franchise that had endured a 13-year postseason drought.

Salt Lake City tourism officials had some fun with the Golden State Warriors after the team complained about the lack of nightlife in Salt Lake City, Utah, in preparation for their series against the Jazz. Golden State swept the Portland Trail Blazers with an average margin of victory of 18 points in the first round, and they defeated the Jazz by 12 points in the series opener. He had 12 points and shot only 4 of 15 from the field, including 2 for 9 on 3-pointers. In general, the Jazz are probably the worst McGee-matchup in the entire playoffs.

"Those guys can create their own shots when they want to", he said.

Several residents in Salt Lake City - where the Jazz dominate the sports scene - scoffed at the California players' comments. Ultimately, Hill's toe won't fully heal until he takes an extended amount of time off. But it's not clear that Gobert is able to play at full strength for 30 minutes a game in his current condition, let alone the 40+ Utah would need to prevent the swoons they experienced in Game 1. He was attended to by team physicians and sat out most of the fourth quarter, checking in for one offensive possession before Gobert was whistled for a flagrant foul on Draymond Green.
