Jackson: Andrew Bogut a ‘Game-changer’
Center Andrew Bogut, limited by first-half foul trouble, delivered the defense and rebounding Sunday that helped rally Golden State to a 97-87 overtime win over the San Antonio Spurs, knotting their Western Conference semifinal series at 2-2.
Bogut grabbed 18 rebounds, becoming the first Warriors player in 40 seasons to reach that total twice in the same postseason. He is the franchise’s first player to corral double-digit rebounds in five straight playoff games in 24 years.
“He’s a game-changer because of his presence in the paint and his high IQ for the game of basketball,” (coach Mark) Jackson said.
