Fans of the Golden State Warriors were probably hoping for a revenge win Thursday night against the Indiana Pacers.

Kevin Durant scored 27 points, hitting 8 of 23 shots, and Klay Thompson scored all 16 of his points in the first half for the Warriors.

The Warriors provided an update on the status of guard Patrick McCaw on Thursday, who has been out of action since a scary fall against the Kings on March 31, that saw him leave the floor on a stretcher. I really was looking forward to playing them with their roster tonight, just to see where we were.

The Warriors entered the night locked into the No. 2 spot in the Western Conference standings, but they still wanted to beat a rival that had taken two of the first three meetings this season.


The Warriors will look to get back to winning ways when they host the New Orleans Pelicans later this week on Saturday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, which will be their last home game of the regular season before the playoffs. They took the lead for good on Lance Stephenson's 3 with 9:46 left in the first half and never allowed Golden State to get closer than 10 after halftime.

When asked if he was mad, the 2016 NBA Coach of the Year said, "Yeah, I'm mad".

"It's tough to turn it on, especially missing a guy like Steph", Shaun Livingston said, per the East Bay Times. "We defended at a high level and any time we do that, we will be successful", Oladipo said. One of the best matches in his career gave Bogdan Bogdanovich, who converted 11 of 13 shots from the game. Instead, the Warriors made a decision to visit the Museum of African-American History along with children from Kevin Durant's hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland. "I know that this game doesn't mean anything in the seedings". It's an embarrassing effort and a pathetic effort. They earned their sixth win in seven games and their second in nine days over Golden State. They built a 20-point lead in the third quarter. The Jazz's post-All-Star break defensive rating is a minuscule 96.7, 4.7 points lower per 100 possessions than Boston's league-leading mark of 101.4. "We needed to be physical and work on the offensive end of the floor, and I thought both units did that for 48 minutes".
