Deliberate Jazz try to slow down Warriors in 2nd round

That's an advantage for the Warriors.

All-Star forward Gordon Hayward scored 12 points, but shot just 4 of 15.

Clippers: They fell to 3-4 all-time in Game 7s. Joe Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Rodney Hood is grabbing 2.4 rebounds.

Suffering from nausea and pain, Kerr has no timetable for a return, leaving assistant coach Mike Brown, the former coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers, to guide the Warriors into the second round best-of-7 Western Conference matchup against the Jazz, who needed the maximum to oust the Los Angeles Clippers in round one.

"They can go to L.A. between the games if they want", Ingles said. If you're like me then you're always on the go.

Bonus question: What's the most compelling series other than the Warriors/Jazz match-up? Kevin Durant returned from his knee injury only to strain his calf in in Game 1 of Round 1 against the Portland Trail Blazers.

"We've never been in the second round, so now that's another first", Utah coach Quin Snyder told reporters in reference to his three-season tenure.

Another way to look at it is on a per-possession basis.

But Oracle Arena went rocking with the Warriors starting the fourth quarter on an 10-0 blitz to take a 94-73 lead with less than nine minutes to play, all with Curry and Durant on the bench. Utah doesn't have a lot of great offensive diversity and the Jazz also should be worn out from a 7-game series that ended just 48 hours ago. Gordon Hayward averaged 23.7 points and 7.3 rebounds per game to lead Utah in the playoff series. They did a good job trying to limit his looks. If they want the entertainment, they can drive to Vegas, too.

Adding another star to utilize Paul's passing skills is what the Clippers need and potential free agent Paul George may be just what the team needs.

"They're a fast-breaking team and we're basically not", Utah's Joe Johnson said.

Scott Beck, president of Visit Salt Lake, sent a letter to the Warriors to accompany the video, saying the city can't wait to host the 2015 National Basketball Association champions as they face the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference semifinals this weekend.

Utah is a heavy underdog and certainly can not pull off an upset without more from its best players. But the Jazz didn't have a scheme for taking the wheels off the Warriors' high-speed vehicle. It's Ingles that could come in and either hit shots, bug a Warrior into a technical or just make the game ugly. That's one big reason the Jazz were only outscored by 3 points in the 30 minutes he was on the floor.

Hayward is also versatile and his size, standing at 6-foot-8, allows him to play different positions.

Game 1 was vintage Green, chest-bumping with Zaza Pachulia, spewing profanities at nobody in particular - or, you know, in Hayward's ear, occasionally - and for the Jazz, it was devastating.
