The Golden State Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers 121-109 in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series on Sunday night. It was a heck of a ballgame, really, as Damian Lillard and C.J.McCollum were brilliant, combining for 75 points.
But the Warriors, led by Draymond Green, used their defense to finally hold down the Blazers' potent backcourt in the fourth quarter. Green finished with an unreal game: 19 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, five blocks and three steals.
Not sure if he also had a partridge in a pear tree.
Sal and Steiny also talked briefly about the San Francisco Giants and whether they stink or not. It's early and Steinmetz still thinks they have time. Of course they do. They've only played 14 games. Last but not least, the boys want to find a way to get A's president Dave Kaval on their podcast. Why? Because Kaval is the man and he's got things going in a great direction for the A's.
