OAKLAND, Calif. - Forced to go small, the Golden State Warriors keep coming up big.East or West, they are the best team in the NBA right now — and they want everyone to know it.Stephen Curry had 32 points and 12 assists, Draymond Green got his first career triple-double and the Warriors rolled past the Toronto Raptors 126-105 on Friday night in a matchup of conference leaders.One thing we always say when were playing against a team like this is, This is a team we could possibly play later on in the year, Green said. Try to make a statement.Did they ever.Green finished with 16 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds, and three others scored in double digits to help the NBA-best Warriors (26-5) wear down the Raptors (24-9) in the second half. Golden State started the third quarter on a 23-5 run and thwarted the Raptors brief rally with contributions from all over.I went in the locker room and just told them, I dont have much to say other than wow, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.Torontos loss allowed Atlanta to move into first in the East.Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points, and Kyle Lowry had 22 points and eight assists for the Raptors, who lost consecutive road games for the first time this season. Toronto fell to 2-3 on its six-game trip, which ends at Phoenix on Sunday.Golden State kept up its blistering pace without a true centre as Andrew Bogut (right knee) and backup Festus Ezeli (left ankle) continue to recover from nagging injuries.Kerr mixed and matched smaller lineups — using Green and Marreese Speights down low and sometimes nothing but forwards on the floor — to push the pace and maximize his teams versatility.The Warriors outshot Toronto 53.3 per cent to 46.5 per cent. They also tied a season-low with nine turnovers, while the Raptors had 17.Thats a well-oiled machine. Their small lineup is one of the best in the league, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said.The Warriors went 5 for 6 from 3-point range in the first quarter to take a 40-31 lead. It was the most points Golden State has scored and the most the Raptors have allowed in the first quarter this season.Even with the Warriors putting on an offensive spectacle, Toronto didnt go away easily.Lowry overcame early foul trouble and Vasquez hit four 3s in the first half to help the Raptors regroup from a 14-point deficit. Golden State led just 66-61 at intermission.When we feel threated, Speights said, we always play better.Just as they have so often during the best start in franchise history, the Warriors leaned on their defence and their leading man to pull away behind one big burst.Curry capped the spurt by throwing down a hard dunk as Lowry tried to block him from behind. Curry screamed as Lowry tried to inbound the ball and the announced sellout crowd of 19,596 roared to its feet — along with several teammates.I couldnt stop screaming when he did that either, Green said.The Raptors, playing without All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan (torn muscle in left groin) for the 16th straight game, closed to 110-101 before Curry finished with a flurry — scoring 10 points in a three-minute span.The Warriors also got key contributions from Speights (26 points and eight rebounds), Klay Thompson (20 points), David Lee (12 points and seven rebounds) and Justin Holiday (nine points).Their small ball really got to us, Lowry said. I think they kind of just went up and down a little bit too fast at a pace we didnt really want.TIP-INSRaptors: Toronto has lost 10 in a row at Golden State, a skid that dates to February 2004. ...

Air Max 270 React Script Swoosh Pas Cher . -- Michigan coach John Beilein is willing to give Nik Stauskas a little leeway when it comes to shot selection.REGINA - The Grey Cup arriving in downtown Regina via horse-drawn carriage. Baltimore Stallion jerseys. Easterners adapting to mind-numbingly low temperatures. Almost everyone and every building in the city dressed up in green. These are some of the memorable sights in and around the Grey Cup host city this week, but perhaps the most unique and curious visage of them all is something that is considered blasphemous to many fans of the Hamilton Tiger Cats - one of their coaches is wearing an Argonaut Grey Cup ring. The coach is defensive coordinator Orlondo Steinauer, who was Torontos defensive backs coach a year ago. The reason for donning the bling of the Ticats sworn mortal enemies? "I wear it because Im super proud," Steinauer told TSN.ca "Its a festival here, other people want to see it, some people have never seen it, so you just bring it out." The Ticats signed Steinauer on January 3 this year, a little over a month after the Argos Grey Cup win over Calgary. The Steeltowners hired Kent Austin as their head coach a couple of weeks earlier, and he quickly interviewed several people about becoming his defensive coordinator. He said that Steinauers philosophical viewpoint was similar to his, and that was a big selling point. "Not just about the game," said Austin, when talking about what he liked about Steinauers approach. "Schematically how (Steinauer) views the game, specifically to the CFL, but overall (his) philosophical viewpoint on how to build a football team, how to build a defence, what type of players you want to attract and to have on your team, because the players are going to carry your culture and keep each other accountable." One of the players Steinauer attracted was Brandon Isaac. The linebacker was an integral part of the 2012 Grey Cup champs before being unceremoniously dumped by the Argos early this season. The coach pounced on the opportunity to bring B.I. aboard. "The reason Brandon was brought in is that we were a little too finesse and not quite enough killer," said Steinauer. "We were still trying to find those guys who were going to impact football games and thats what Brandon brings, a little bit of tenacity, a little bit of nastiness, overconfidence, that kind of thing, and we needed that." Isaac relished the opportunity to be reunited with the Ticats DC. "Hes a players coach. Hes a phenomenal coach, he does a great job of explaining things and putting you in position." Isaac continued about Steinauers strengths, "His explanation of Xs and Os, his preparatiion before the game.dddddddddddd A lot of times we know what a team is going to do and were prepared for it. Hes a great motivational speaker. Hes not a rah rah guy, he doesnt yell at you, hes just a calm guy who is passionate about the game." Steinauer was asked by TSN.ca to describe his defensive philosophy in one word. The one he chose tells you everything you need to know about his approach to the game. "Multiple." It makes sense because theres not one defence he throws out there on a regular basis. You may think that as a player who thrived under Rich Stublers match coverage, that Steinauer would use that as a base defence. The Ticats employ it, but last week in their East Final win over the Argos, that coverage was not used once in the second half. Instead the team brought pressure on every down, something the Argos didnt expect. That made defensive tackle Brian Bulcke, working with Steinauer for the first time, a very happy man. "He empowers us" said Bulcke, who played for the Stampeders in last years Grey Cup. "He actually puts a lot of responsibility back onto the players. Hes got no ego in the game, he just loves developing a simple scheme that we can execute and actually take on as our own and thats just awesome." And the multiple aspect of Steinauers defence is something he wears as a badge of honour. "A lot of coordinators come with the M.O. that theyre going to bring pressure, or theyre going to be a bend but dont break, or theyre going to be soft, or theyre going to stop the run, but give up big pass," Steinauer continued. "Were going to do whatever it takes to win that week." Steinauers word to describe his defence is multiple. His head coach wasnt able to be as succinct when talking about the job done by his right-hand man. "I dont think one word can describe it to be honest with you," Austin told TSN.ca. "The coaching job that he and his staff have done this year has been nothing short of outstanding. He has done just a marvelous coaching job. Hes extremely bright, hes very, very hard working, unbelievably organized, he stays on point, he doesnt let the little things distract him, he focuses on the big picture, and getting to that big picture by putting tangible things in place to achieve those goals. Hes just a really, really, really talented coach." Occasionally Steinauers name is mentioned when openings arise for a head coach in the CFL. If it doesnt happen this year, it wont be long before Steinauer is no longer Austins assistant...hes his peer. ' ' '
