GSW’s Bogut: ‘We Forget We Need to Defend’

This wasn’t a chess game, this was a four-quarter stampede happening in the middle of a basketball court.
It sure wasn’t ballet. It was loud and mind-boggling for long stretches and impossible to fully comprehend at all times.
But the Warriors’ 110-108 Game 3 victory over Denver at Oracle Arena on Friday was just as frantically entertaining as you could possibly want a playoff game.
And it gave the Warriors a 2-1 lead in this first-round series, with another game set for Sunday at Oracle and with the upstart Warriors now on the brink of putting Denver in a strangle hold.
“Everyone kind of laughed off Game 2 and said we’re not going to score that much again, and we knew we wouldn’t,” center Andrew Bogut said. “But we knew if we grinded it out and played some defense–we won the rebound-count again, which is great–that’s the style we need to play.
“We’re so good offensively that sometimes we forget we need to defend.”
