PBT Extra: Warriors will be okay without Stephen Curry if focused


The knee-jerk reaction to the Warriors losing Stephen Curry for a couple weeks due to a sprained ankle is to say "so Kevin Durant gets a lot more touches, is that so bad?"

But it's not that simple. Sure, the Warriors still 6.1 points per 100 possessions better than opponents when Curry has been off the court this season, but their offense drops to 106.7 points per 1oo (still top 10 in the league, but 8 per 100 off the team average). Curry and his gravity as a shooter is what makes the Warriors engine work, opening space up for everyone else.

Still, if the Warriors are focused they will be fine, which is what I get into in this latest PBT Extra.

The Vikings opened the game by converting each of their first three drives into touchdowns to take a commanding 21-0 lead after the first quarter. Quarterback Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs, one of his favourite targets, to help get that early lead and later found Aldrick Robinson for a score. Cousins finished 14-of-21 passing for 215 yards.
