纵使主力球员斯蒂芬·库里缺席本周三比赛,金州勇士还是以114-81的比分赢得火箭,并以4-1的总比分在西部季后赛的首轮比赛中出线,成功晋级半决赛。
 
The defending NBA champs will move on to face either the Portland Trail Blazers or Los Angeles Clippers.
 
NBA的这支卫冕冠军球队接下来将可能迎战波特兰开拓者队或洛杉矶快船。
 
If the Trail Blazers, up 3-2 in the series, can finish off the injury-ravaged Clippers at home on Friday, the Western semi-final best-of-seven would start on Sunday in Oakland.
 
如果开拓者在本周五能够赢下伤兵满营的快船队,以3-2的比分赢得这一轮,则后续的系列半决赛将在本周日于奥克兰举行。
 
The Warriors almost surely will be without Curry for most, if not all, of the second-round series after he sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee during Game 4 against the Rockets on Sunday.
 
在上周日勇士与火箭的第四场比赛中,库里从脚踝伤势中复出,然而在比赛过程中却又因为右膝盖的内侧副韧带扭伤而不得不停止比赛。这样一来,库里很可能将缺席接下来的大多数比赛。
 
Golden State improved to 4-1 without the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player by winning the series clincher against the Rockets, with veteran Shaun Livingston stepping into Curry’s starting role and contributing 16 points on 7-for-8 shooting.
 
本场比赛中,资深球员尚恩·利文斯顿替代库里的位置,全场8投7中,一共贡献16分。虽然没有NBA最有价值球员库里上场,但勇士队还是凭借自己超强实力赢得火箭,将大比分提高到4-1.
 
Ten of Livingston’s points came on 4-for-4 shooting and a pair of free throws in the first quarter, during which the Warriors scored the first eight points and suffocated every Rocket not named James Harden en route to a 37-20 lead.
 
第一节比赛中,利文斯顿4投全中,并拿下两个罚球,共获得10分。在这段时间内,勇士以8-0开局,全程压制包括詹姆斯·哈登在内的每一位火箭球员,并以37-20的比分结束第一节。
