Tonight’s match against the Utah Jazz followed a similar pattern to the one we’ve observed all season long with the Golden State Warriors. They came out slow to start but ultimately turned on the nitro-fuel boosters in the second half to run away with a blowout win.

Golden State’s offense was a tale of two halves. It was hard to come by buckets at the start with Draymond Green hitting their only two three-pointers by the end of the first half. Klay Thompson especially struggled early. And then, like so many other games this year, the Warriors came alive in the second half and poured it on.

Thompson found his stroke, Kevin Durant continued to be a cold-blooded killer, and our beloved Patrick McCaw rediscovered some of that magic that’s been missing for him this season.

What continued to be impressive, though, was their attention and activity on the defensive end. The paint-patrol unit of Green, Durant and Jordan Bell continued to absolutely shut down opposing players at the rim, as they held another team to sub-40 percent shooting.

The only downside tonight was Omri Casspi ended up spraining his ankle. He has been providing great production off the bench so that will be something for us to keep an eye on.

Next game up is this Friday against the Charlotte Hornets.
