The series is even at two games apiece mostly because Golden State’s defense showed up, aided by one massive adjustment.

After three games of sticking to their standard defensive look, the Warriors finally packed the paint and challenged non-shooters to hoist. Beyond that strategic shift, the Warriors won this game with defensive tenacity and offensive aggression.

“It didn’t affect nothing,” Allen said of the big adjustment. “It’s I just wasn’t able to give my team the energy tonight.”
