Things are already started in the west. The league’s best Golden State Warriors have taken the first game over the Portland Trail Blazers, even without potential repeat MVP Stephen Curry in the lineup. On the other side, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs have already played two game in the series. They each hold a win, but the competition will move to Oklahoma City on Friday.

Andrew Bogut has taken to publicly calling himself unflattering names. As long as Bogut and the defending champion Warriors keep playing the kind of defense that has helped them set the tone so far in these playoffs without MVP Stephen Curry, he won’t even mind if anybody else uses those words to describe him either. Bogut’s two early blocks got Golden State going during Sunday’s 118-106 win against the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. The teams resume their best-of-seven series Tuesday night in Oakland. The Warriors again will try to establish an energy and presence on the defensive end from the start. They know their offense will come given this team’s depth and many playmakers.
Dion Waiters pushed off on Manu Ginobili while throwing an inbounds pass with 13.5 seconds left in Monday night’s game. It took a hairy conclusion and the officials to miss a call to avoid catastrophe is the reason why the Thunder so gleefully jumped for joy and hugged each other when the horn finally sounded, only the second visiting team to win in 45 games at the AT&T Center all season. It’s also why the Spurs should now be concerned going to OKC with the series 1-1. It wasn’t about a missed call and some missed chances in the end. It was about a horribly uninspired and inept start, wasting a 41-point night by Aldridge and actually letting the Thunder beat them three different times in the same game.
