While McGee's play was stellar, it was a fashion choice he made that had people talking afterwards as he played the game with a shiny, gold mouth piece that could have passed for an actual gold grill.

Spurs: The Spurs, still without injured star Kawhi Leonard, never led and shot 40 percent.

Iguodala played well in the role, scoring three points, adding seven rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes. Klay Thompson chipped in 27 on 11-of-13 shooting as well.

The Golden State Warriors are going to the playoffs, but not as the 1-seed. If Joel Embiid comes back faster than expected from a fractured orbital bone, Philadelphia could do some real damage in the East.

Despite the injuries, the Celtics are a good defensive team but they could have trouble scoring points. They were much stronger defensively with 36 rebounds while the other 24 were on the offensive end.

Here's a look at the Warriors projected starting lineup and rotation without Curry. Without Kawhi, the Spurs are shooting spitballs at a tank. We know how good we are.

All season long, the Warriors would pace themselves.

"We want to make a statement in Game 2 as well", said Thompson. "When our intensity and focus are high, we're tough to beat". "The examination indicated that Stephen has made steady functional progress since the injury and, as a result, he will intensify his on-court rehabilitation in the coming days, which will include more running and lateral movement". "But he did have dinner with his family last night, so we'll see".
