Warriors show 'pathetic effort' as Pacers pass 'big test'

After beating the Warriors without their 4 All-Stars last Tuesday, Indiana completed the season sweep over Golden State on Thurdsay night with Durant, Thompson and Green playing this time around.

All-Star forward Kevin Durant was mired in a tough shooting night, only 8-of-23 from the floor and a woeful 2-of-10 from deep, but disagreed with his coach's notion that this team didn't seem to care about the result at hand. Seven different Pacers scored from 3-point range.

McCaw could be back no earlier than the second round of the playoffs for the Warriors, who hope to have Stephen Curry (knee) back by that point.

The 2017 Finals MVP added that the Pacers "came out with a better strategy, being more aggressive than us".

"Nah, I thought we cared tonight", he said. This was another statement game for IN (47-32), facing the Golden State Warriors (57-22).

The game was easily within reach for the Warriors, but they were never able to pose a threat. Like many teams, they play best when counted out ... just as everyone counted them out in late June after The Trade was completed.

"I'm embarrassed", Kerr said. I know that this game doesn't mean anything in the seeding, but the playoffs start next week. As a team, the Pacers hit an incredible 53.8 percent (50-93) of their shots from the floor and 51.7 percent of their three-pointers (15-29).

Oladipo was happy with the win but said the team has higher goals. "It was an embarrassing effort, a pathetic effort". The Warriors turned the ball over 16 times and were outrebounded by eight.

Golden State led 107-103 when a steal by Westbrook led to a dunk by Corey Brewer with 20 seconds left. The Sixers also often show their age when it comes to the game's finer points, leading the league in turnovers (16.7 per game) and tying for second in fouls (22.2). Utah has held 14 of its last 17 opponents below 100 points, limiting teams to just 42.4 percent shooting over that stretch.

He averages 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists.

Golden State cut the deficit in half by scoring the first 10 points of the fourth quarter before in answered with 17-1 run to regain control.

"I think first of all we did a great job defensively", Bogdanovic said.
