Stephen Curry signs off social media to stymie playoff distractions

Durant and Stephen Curry give the Warriors two bonafide top-10 players (arguably top-five) on their roster, and Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are also All-Stars.

"But one of my favorite pastimes is organizing the garage".

Here are the playoff brackets for the 2017 NBA Playoffs. It is said that good defense leads to better offense.

The Cavs would be heavy underdogs against the Warriors, and rightfully so. "But I will say it pleases me to know that our players, in general, enjoy playing for our team and are happy to be a part of our organization", Myers told The Mercury News via e-mail. In the Western Conference, the Warriors dismantled the Rockets in five games as all the games in that series averaged between 120-130 points.

Instead of the team focusing on his absence, they buckled down and rode the Splash Brothers to a more impressive victory than they had in Game 1.

No team can defeat Golden State without a world class performance from one player, and Kawhi Leonard might have what it takes to do just that.

The Chef makes a ton of sense here, the playoffs can be a completely different animal than the regular season.

Durant signed a two-year deal when he joined the Warriors last summer.

Before Game 2 of Golden State's first round series with the Portland Trail Blazers, Stephen Curry spoke to ESPN why he is doing away with social media for the postseason.

No NBA dynasty can stay together forever, but the Golden State Warriors have a fairly simple path that could let them continue to dominate the NBA for years. Bay Area fans are awesome, our organization's incredible, we've put together an awesome team that's competing for championships every year.

The Golden State Warriors are the overwhelming favourites to win the 2016-17 National Basketball Association championship. The team that seems to be Golden State's biggest competition is the San Antonio Spurs, which has a 13 percent chance of winning the title.

The Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers had the same regular-season record as the Cavs, but they are facing each other in the first round, and the victor won't make it beyond five games against the Warriors in Round No.2. Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas has done the same thing. Going without social media has apparently paid dividends.
