I do expect the Warriors to use Jonathan Kuminga for small stretches on Luka Doncic. Possibly early in quarters before they near bonus because Kuminga is aggressive and Luka is a foul magnet. They did it in three of the four regular season matchups. Here is what it looked like.

Here is Andrew Wiggins' defensive work on Luka Doncic this season. Guarded him plenty in all four games. Luka made some shots, but this is good tape from Wiggins. Limited the easy looks, caused some turnovers.

Gary Payton II on the flagrant foul that fractured his elbow: "NBA playoff foul. That's about it." Payton said Dillon Brooks reached out to him: "We talked. It's all good. Basketball play. I know he didn't mean it." Full soundbite

Gary Payton II won't play to open the conference finals, but has been able to keep conditioning up since it's elbow injury. Steve Kerr: "We're not ruling him out of the whole conference finals. We're not saying he's going to play either." Called it a "longshot" but "possibility."

Steve Kerr said Otto Porter Jr. was on the stationary bike today: "I talked to him and he said he was feeling better. We're hopeful he will be able to play Game 1."

Steve Kerr has cleared protocol and is back with the Warriors ahead of the conference finals.

Should be noted in that elimination Game 6 win for the Warriors: Zero minutes for the recently used 2nd, 7th and 14th overall picks. They’re layering well under core. Poole pick a home run. But this run is a testament to the longevity of the established nucleus.

Steph Curry had the final say in the game, so of course he had the last word against Dillon Brooks and these Memphis Grizzlies afterward. On this young v. old matchup and how the mutual respect and rhetoric continued until the very end, at @TheAthletic
