Asked Draymond about the past. When I dissed his Summer League shooting: "I was HOT. Steaming. Didn't take it well. Wanted to fight you."

Warriors' bench key to victory

Klay Thompson led all Golden State scorers, but he made it clear that the reserves were the real difference: "They're the reason we came back. Their energy, their passion and their unselfishness -- it was awesome to watch."

Anthony Davis put up 26-10 in 45 minutes, but went 0-5 FG in the 4Q. Warriors went on 9-1 run to ice the game. GSW up 2-0.

Curry & Co. have their daggers out

In the words of ESPN's J.A. Adande, this game is just coming down to quality of shots now. Fortunately for the Warriors, few in the NBA are better at making shots than Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, and Golden State leads late in the fourth. Follow live
