The Vegas Golden Knights have a nickname for themselves. After they punched their ticket to the Stanley Cup Final on Sunday night, they’re happy to say it with pride.
We call ourselves the Golden Misfits for a reason, said winger Ryan Reaves, who scored the game-winning goal in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals. We’ve proven everyone else wrong all season.
As a team, the Warriors expressed disappointment in not sustaining a high level of play rather than focusing on one possession. Durant said that’s what they need to fix going into Game 5.
Authentic Kids Brad Marchand Jersey It’s the whole game that we’ve got to get better at, especially in the fourth, he said. I think going up 10 going into the fourth, it was a good opportunity for us to kind of take control, and we didn’t. So I definitely wish I had that last play back. So I’m going to watch film and see what my options were and just hopefully if I’m in that position again I’ll be better.
Green offered his take.
We know we made a lot of mistakes down the stretch in that fourth quarter. So, we’ll be fine, he said.
There was no penalty on the play.
Orpik did not take another shift in the second period. He’s averaged 17:18 per game in 18 postseason games, with three assists.
David Johnson Elite Jersey We’ve got to be better, said Paul, who finished with 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting and four assists. I think we’ve got to come out more aggressive. We were letting them hit first, you know what I mean?
The Rockets, the NBA’s second-ranked offense behind only the Warriors during the regular season, were especially woeful shooting in the first half. Houston shot Max Pacioretty Jersey 34.9 percent from the floor, including only 4-of-15 from 3-point range and 9-of-21 within the restricted area, with many of the missed layups leading to transition points for Golden State.
We didn’t make shots, didn’t make plays, D’Antoni said. It looked like the air seeped out of our balloon. They picked it up in the second half. They made shots and we didn’t, but it goes back to force.
