After the Golden State Warriors casually dispatched the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal series, many were jumping ahead to the next series. When would Stephen Curry return? Does he even need to? The Warriors’ 110-99 win on Tuesday suggests an easy victory. But the score belies the story.
“Game 2s always scare me, especially if you won the first one relatively easily like we did,” coach Steve Kerr said after the game. “It just happens. It’s human nature. The other team comes out angry, maybe you let your guard down a little bit, even though you’re aware of the circumstances.”
