Warriors: Because of eight different starting line-ups, the tendency of coach Steve Kerr is always three shooters & # 39; in the game. Durant or Thompson, if not both, will be on the pitch as long as the game is competitive. Others who fall under the category "shooter" are Quinn Cook, power forward Jonas Jerebko and small forward Damion Lee. … The bank, with the exception of the big man Kevon Looney, did not play very well against the Kings on Saturday. Fellow big Jordan Bell could use a backstroke game and he gets a chance.
Magic: Vucevic plays at All Star level. The 7-foot USC product scored every race in double digits this season. He had 31 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists in a Sunday's victory over the Lakers. The great men of the Warriors will have their hands full. … Bay Area native Gordon also plays well and will likely be assigned to defend Durant. … The main reserves are shootmaster Terrence Ross, small forward Jonathan Simmons, point guard Jerian Grant and rookie center Mo Bamba. … Orlando is vulnerable to talent, but does not give much opponents to opponents, because they did the fourth turn-off in the competition.
