Warriors coach Steve Kerr heaped praise on Andrew Bogut for his efforts in Game 5.

"I thought [Bogut] was phenomenal," Kerr said. "He rebounded, he scored, he was aggressive. We went into him on the post to try to get him as a passer with our cutters around him, and he was tremendous – 14 boards. Obviously, rebounding has been an issue. It's an issue for everybody against Oklahoma City. So when he can play that way and rebound the ball like that, it just gives us a much better chance to win the game." After scoring 15 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 30 minutes, Bogut will be a nice option in DFS for Game 6.

Stephen Curry looked healthy during a Game 5 120-11 victory over the Thunder on Thursday, making 9-of-20 from the field for 31 points with seven rebounds, six assists, five steals and three 3-pointers.

With all the rumors swirling around Curry saying he's only at 70 percent, he looked much better. After the game, coach Steve Kerr said Curry "looked like 91 percent" in what was his best scoring output in this series. A big difference for Curry was his on-ball plays as he was able to get to the rim more often with his eight shots within three feet. He'll have Friday off, so maybe he'll be at 95 percent for Game 6 in OKC as the Warriors look to tie the series at three.

Draymond Green got it going during a Game 5 win over the Thunder on Thursday, scoring 11 points with 13 rebounds, four assists, one steal, four blocks and two turnovers in 39 minutes.

He turned it around after four sub-par games during this series, especially in the last two. The bad news is that Green picked up his fifth technical foul, so two more and he will be suspended for one game. This is on top of Green possibly being suspended for another flagrant foul. After the lineups with Green at the five were smoked in the last two, he played only one of the first 46 minutes at center tonight -- the Warriors went small to prevent threes late. The move to the four should help in Game 6.

Marreese Speights filled it up in just nine minutes with 14 points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer on Thursday.

In true Mo Buckets fashion, he had a 48.1 usage rate and a 76.1 true shooting percentage. Speights' output off the bench was very helpful while the starters were resting. He won't play a bunch, but he sure can fill it up in minimal playing time.
May 27 - 12:11 AM

Harrison Barnes played just 25 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with six points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He likely would've played less if the Warriors didn't have a decent lead late. Coach Steve Kerr gave some of Barnes' first-half minutes to Andrew Bogut, which should continue going forward. Barnes' best postseason for scoring has been his rookie season back in 2013 and it's not close, so the downward trend is discouraging. The 23-year-old wing hasn't helped his earning potential this summer.

Andrew Bogut was a huge part of Thursday's Game 5 win over the Thunder, scoring a postseason career-high 15 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

His increased minutes tonight may have been the difference. Bogut played just 23 minutes combined in the last two games, but the Warriors went much bigger in this game. Bogut's presence around the rim on defense was a big part of limiting easy buckets for OKC while his passing and four offensive boards went a long way for the Dubs' offense. The Aussie is probably going to be a bit sore after this one, but expect him to get some extended run again on Saturday. Coach Steve Kerr gets a lot of credit for this rotation change.

James Michael McAdoo is active for Game 5 on Thursday.

It's usually Brandon Rush on the inactive list, so this could be a hint the Warriors go bigger. They have been smoked on small-ball lineups in the last two, so maybe we see more Festus Ezeli and Andrew Bogut. He is just insurance.
May 26 - 8:49 PM

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut will start against the Thunder in Game 5.

The Warriors have to make some adjustments tonight, but it won't be out of the gate. Harrison Barnes made several mistakes in the last two while Bogut has been in a tough spot with all this pace. We should still see plenty of Andre Iguodala and possibly more Festus Ezeli.
May 26 - 8:24 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) insisted that his injured knee is feeling fine on Thursday.

When asked about a report that he is playing at 70 percent, Curry said his knee is fine and refused to use it as an excuse. Curry added that the Warriors aren't outmatched and are just being outplayed. Steph will have an opportunity to turn things around at home in Game 5 on Thursday and will be facing a long offseason as the defending champs face an elimination game.
May 26 - 1:46 PM

Draymond Green wrote he has no doubts the Warriors will win Game 5 on Thursday.

"I have no doubt in my mind that we will win [Game 5]," Green wrote on The Undefeated. "No doubt about that." Green better be right as the Warriors next loss will have them watching the NBA Finals from home. Green has been struggling for the last two games of the Western Conference Finals, but we'll look for a bounceback game from Dray on Thursday with the Dubs playing at home.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Andrew Bogut needs to avoid getting into foul trouble.

Bogut is only averaging 14 minutes per game through the first four games of the Western Conference Finals, but Kerr said the limited minutes aren't due to health issues or matchups. "He's fouling," Kerr said. "He's got 13 fouls in 56 minutes. He's almost fouling out of every game in 10-15 minutes. He's got to be smarter with his fouls. We need him out there — he was plus-7 [Tuesday] night in 11 minutes." Kerr said the Warriors need Bogut on the floor in Game 5 on Thursday, but he's almost impossible to play in DFS as he's put up just 12 points and 17 rebounds in the first four games of the series.
May 26 - 9:38 AM

Coach Steve Kerr said the Warriors "need' Andrew Bogut out there.

"When he’s out there, we rebound better and we’ve got a good passer out of the post," Kerr said. "We want to play Bogut more, but he’s got to stay on the floor." He was actually the only player in the positive for plus-minus on Tuesday as the Warriors were destroyed on their small-ball plan. Still, it's tough to count on Bogut for more than 16 minutes in Game 5.
May 25 - 6:50 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said Stephen Curry "may just not be quite where he needs to be" right now.

Kerr said Curry is not hurt, but a previous report said he's playing at 70 percent. In the last two games, the Thunder have put a stop to Curry catch-and-shoot shots with the MVP making just 1-of-10 on those. Maybe the home crowd will help him on Thursday with the Warriors needing Curry to resemble the regular-season version of himself.
May 25 - 3:40 PM

Draymond Green will not be suspended for tripping Enes Kanter during Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

Green is just one flagrant foul away from a suspension, but the league has reportedly decided not to upgrade his foul on Kanter to a flagrant 1 foul, meaning he's in the clear for Thursday's Game 5 against OKC. Green has been a shell of himself over the past two games, and he knows that he'll need to come with a much stronger effort during Game 5 if the Dubs hope to send the series back to OKC for a Game 6.
May 25 - 1:34 PM

Draymond Green described the Warriors current 3-1 hole in the Western Conference Finals as "stunning," and acknowledged that he needs to be better for the remainder of the series.

"Right now, I'm not myself," said Green. "I'm thinking too much, and that's leading to all the things that I'm not supposed to be doing. I just … I just have to be me." Over the past two games, Green has not given the Dubs much of anything, going 2-of-16 from the field whilst posting a plus/minus rating of minus-73. Green also appeared to trip Enes Kanter during Game 4, which could potentially be viewed as a flagrant 1 foul, which would result in a one-game suspension for Green. Stay tuned.
