SAN FRANCISCO – The Warriors have no panic in the locker room after falling into the fourth quarter of the NBA Finals Game One and the team will be more physical when they face the Celtics again on Sunday, Golden State’s Dreammond told Green Reuters.
The Warriors became inactive late in Game One, dropping 40 points in the final frame and eventually falling to 120-108 spectators.
“We have to make it harder for them,” Green said during a Warriors training camp in San Francisco.
“We have to feel on both sides of their floor and play with the kind of intensity it takes to win an NBA Finals game. I don’t think we did that for 48 minutes. “
The Warriors, who are advancing to their sixth final in eight years, will rely on their deep experience, he said.
“We’ve seen everything, man,” Green said.
“We have lost 1-0 in the final before. We have been up 3-1. We have tied 2-2 in Game Five. We have seen everything and we know what it takes to get these moments You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people. “
The music played during the shooting drill at the Chase Center and the team was relieved. Green said the team’s confidence remained unchanged despite the push.
“There is nothing to panic about,” he said.
“It’s not four from the first, not one, two or three from the first. If we are true to ourselves, then everything is fine. “
Stephen Curry, who scored 21 points in the first quarter of Game One, said the squad needed to get off to a heated start again and keep their feet on the gas to avoid falling into a 2-0 hole.
“By the fourth trimester, you could just feel the dramatic shift and the snow started to fall,” Curry said.
“We need to come out of the first quarter with a sense of frustration and cement ourselves in terms of what we’re trying to do.
“Play with the same joy, with the same aggression that we always do, but we have to hold it for more than 48 minutes.”
Two games on Sunday (Monday morning in Manila) in San Francisco.
