National Basketball Association playoffs 2018: Predictions, picks for Warriors vs. Spurs first-round series

Uber giving away Warriors swag on Tuesday to select fans riding in Bay Area

In addition, Stephen Curry will be out at least one round while recovering from a sprained MCL.

Whatever Durant decides to do, it nearly certainly will result in him playing in the Bay Area next season, unless. Granted, the Warriors were not always putting forth their best players in the final games, but it's part of a disturbing trend for Kerr's team - the Warriors dropped to ninth in the National Basketball Association in defensive efficiency this season, and were 14th after the All-Star break.

"I was talking to several coaches and execs from teams in the West morass from 3-9 - the fear factor for the Warriors without Curry does not exist", Lowe said. Perhaps most impressively, he's protecting the rim for Golden State and averaging 1.8 blocks per game. "There are people who will say, 'I'd rather play the Warriors right now in the first round than the Thunder or the Jazz".

Israeli Labor Party Suspends Ties With Corbyn, Claims He Sanctions Anti-Semitism
The move came following several steps taken by Corbyn that were interpreted by British Jewish leadership as antisemitic. Firing live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians is illegal and inhumane and can not be tolerated.

Curry's impending return won't change these differences back to normalcies - still expected to have an adaptation period.

Last offseason, Durant inked a discounted two-year, $51 million deal that included an opt-out clause. But the Spurs have bigger problems, having been without Kawhi Leonard for the bulk of the year as he has pulled himself from the floor with a mysterious quadriceps injury. Before this season began, many thought the Warriors winning the championship was all but ensured.

And the danger is that this year, there might be teams good enough to make the Warriors pay for not being 100%.

Steve Kerr said Curry will be re-evaluated Saturday, but the head coach doesn't anticipate the guard will play at all in the first-round series, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

The Milwaukee Bucks and New Orleans Pelicans are the longest shots of the playoff teams at 300-1.
