Golden State Warriors find offensive footing, burn Memphis Grizzlies in Game 3 – Yalla Match

San Francisco – IN Golden State Warriors Almost made history on their way to 142-112 from Memphis Grizzlies In Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

The Warriors shot 63.1 percent from the field and had 76.1 true shooting percentage — the second best player in both categories in NBA history after the season.

The Clippers had a 77.8% true shooting percentage against the Mavericks in Game 5 of the 2020 first-round series.

“When we trust each other and hit the open guy, we have so many good shots that we can have nights like this,” Klay Thompson She says.

Heading into Game 3, the Warriors emphasized the need to find their offensive cadence, starting with better shot selection. Thompson’s performance in the first two games – and then the third – was a case in point.

“When we get good shots, the chances of Clay warming up are much higher,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “And when it’s hot, our team changes its look… so it’s all connected.”

Prior to Saturday night, Thompson was only rotating 28.9% of the Earth, including 5 of only 22 of 3, in the series. In Game 3, he shoots last, scoring 21 points on 8 of 13 shots, including 4 of 6 of 3.

“He got better shots,” Kerr said. “When you set a pitch where you get good hits, the tough hits tend to split.”

The ‘toughest’ Kerr talked about was highlighted by a one-legged runner just outside the three-point line Ben Desmond in the third trimester.

“As long as my shoulders are square to the edge, I can pick up one appendage and two appendages,” Thompson said. “I think it’s a good look and I’ve done it before.”

Kerr disagreed: “[It] It was not a good move. But while he was comfortable, he was in tune and was very capable of making those shots.

As Thompson found the rhythm of his recording, fellow Warriors core guards Steve Curry and Jordan-PaulThey continued their already strong game this series.

Curry scored the highest on 30-for-7-of-14 shooting, while Paul finished with 27-for-11-of-17. They also made an impact on defense, shooting the Grizzlies just 4-for-17 as they were the main defenders.

Game 2 saw the Grizzlies constantly attack Poole, but on Saturday he did the same to them, penetrating the paint at every opportunity.

“I thought his offensive attacking method was fantastic, but more so I thought it was amazing the way he defended and fought on that side of the ball,” Draymond Green She says.

“When you go out and make an effort on that side of the ball, No 1, your teammates can huddle behind you, but more than that from an X and O perspective, you put up some resistance and players can get in there to help you if they need help. I mean, we didn’t need to help him that much tonight.”

The Warriors’ defense helped fuel their offensive flow. In the beginning, Golden State had a large turnover. Green said the Warriors were getting deep in the paint, trying to hit the ball and “dancing” a lot over their injuries – usually due to carelessness with the ball – forcing them to constantly defend Memphis during transition.

It didn’t help that the Grizzlies started the game by lighting fires behind the three-point line. But when the Warriors started to keep Memphis from scoring, they settled on the offensive side.

“When you get your defensive set, you come in with balanced ground and you can have transition opportunities,” Green said. “They all go together. I think ultimately we don’t go too far and try to pass the ball. You kind of go into space, you see the first open player, just move.”

The arc that tied the Warriors’ offensive reveals was a play Andre Wiggins other Otto Porter Jr..

Porter finished with a net worth of plus 33, easily making it his best performance of the season. He was trusted on the boardrooms, but lately he has been an insignificant factor in crime. After not making multiple 3-pointers in a game since April 7, Porter knocked out three 3-pointers in Game 3 en route to 13 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks and steals.

“It’s no accident,” Kerr said. He just understands how to play.” “He’s in the right place all the time.

Wiggins had 17 runs, 15 of which were scored in the first inning – his best in the first half of a playoff game.

“That’s what we’ve been asking Wigs to do all year…Put your head in the hole,” Green said. “It’s very difficult to prevent him from getting into the basket.”

Green continued: “It’s more than a dive. The way he bounces, the body he plays with, he punches with boxing…He’s done an amazing job no matter who he is.

The Warriors look to their Game 3 kill as a model of what they can do. After the start of the first two games of the series – the first won by one point, the second lost by five – they knew that the two games could have ended differently if their offense had been one decimal better. The third game proved it.

“It was a performance that I knew was in them,” Kerr said. “On the tape we saw that if we were a bit more patient and prepared we could get some good shots. I think our players adapted… and did a great job tonight creating a better look.
