Klay Thompson isn't bothered by the Warriors' doubters

Klay Thompson does not feel any extra pressure to perform in the absence of Stephen Curry as he helped the Golden State Warriors defeat the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

Curry's injuries since last month coincided with the Warriors losing 10 of their last 17 games in the regular season with many doubting their chances in the playoffs.

The 36-year-old Wade is on the downside of his hall of fame career, but on this night he looked like the Wade who in his prime helped lead Heat to three National Basketball Association championships. He's shooting 23-of-33 over his first two games, which couldn't be a worse sign for the rest of the league, as past year Thompson shot just 39 percent over the whole playoffs yet the Warriors still breezed to a championship. First, he stripped the ball from Dario Saric and raced downcourt for a slam.

Coming into the match-up, the Cavaliers' defined weakness was their defence - and that certainly showed itself on Sunday - but it was on the other end of the court where the Pacers controlled the game.

The @MiamiHEAT up 104-96 with 2:35 left.

Wade picked up a nice assist the next time down the court, then later grabbed a rebound to finish a 6-0 Miami run that bumped the lead back to eight.

In Game 1, Durant almost posted a triple double (24 points, eight rebounds, seven assists). Goran Dragic added 20 for the Heat.

Ben Simmons (24 points) and Saric (23) led the 76ers.

Cleveland is a one-way team, so engaging in a grind-it-out style of game is a recipe for disaster due to their paper-thin defence that struggles to stop anyone. The Warriors destroyed the scoring differential, 69-45, to close out the game and take a commanding 2-0 lead in the series.

The ART is a specific type of indicator, which is capable of weighing up stock volatility in the financial markets effectively. The stock dispatched 18.28% performance during the quarter and performance arrived at 97.67% over the last six months.

In the most predictable occurrence of the postseason thus far, the Golden State Warriors got outworked by the San Antonio Spurs in the first half of Game 2.

Kevin Durant paced the Golden State Warriors in their second game against the Spurs, dropping in 32 points, six rebounds and six assists in 39 minutes.

The Spurs host game three on Thursday.

Spurs: Aldridge made all 12 of his free throws.

LaMarcus Aldridge's strong play continued for the Spurs as he led all players with 34 points and 12 rebounds.

Heat forward James Johnson had some nice numbers in the Heat's win in Philly. He did not miss a shot (seven of seven, including two of two from three-point range) in scoring 18 points. He added seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.

76ers was awful from 3-point range in its loss to Heat, hitting only 7-of-36 shots (19 percent), including only two 3s in 18 attempts in the first half.

Game 3 is Thursday as the series shifts to San Antonio.

The visiting Pelicans stunned the Trail Blazers with a comeback win in game one. They shot 50 percent from three, and I don't know what we shot, 14 percent, 4 for 28, or something like that. If Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum shoot a combined 13 of 41 again, it will be a long night for the Blazers.
