When the Golden State Warriors lost David Lee for the duration of the post season it would have been easy to dismiss the Warriors from having any hope of moving forward. They are a good team, but good enough to overcome losing such an important piece of the puzzle? Many would say no.
And they would all be wrong.
The Warriors more than picked up the slack with Lee being out by having four of five starters score at least 20 points led by Stephen Curry who had 30 en route to a 131-117 win.
''We are a very good shooting basketball team,'' Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. ''We've got guys that can knock down shots. You talk about Klay Thompson and Steph Curry, in my opinion, they're the greatest shooting backcourt in the history of the game.''
They certainly looked the part hitting just under 65 percent of their shots. They will see if they can keep it rolling at home in Game 3 of the series on Friday.

Despite scoring 30 points in Golden State’s 14-point game two victory over the Denver Nuggets, Warriors guard Stephen Curry didn’t completely go unscathed from the game.

That scuffle between the Warriors and Pacers in February, for all the wrong reasons, was one of the more enjoyable moments of Golden State’s season thus far. To jog your memory, Roy Hibbert and David Lee got involved in a shoving contest, Hibbert went Incredible Hulk on Steph Curry, and Mychal Thomspon clowned his son.
For their efforts in igniting the fracas, Lee and Hibbert...
