Game 8: GSW @ Detroit. Dario Saric on GP2 and winning on the road. Plus open thread.
Wiseman revenge game? Probably James needs revenge on his DET coach instead
Inspirational verse from Dario Saric on 2023-10-26.
Dario, what do you like playing with Gary Payton II?
He's probably one of the Best defensive player especially on the perimeter who I ever play with. So obviously he is like giving us like that kind of force defensively, you know it's easier to guard pick and roll when you feel like the kind of guard who can like avoid the screens, who can be really present on the ball, who can really be active on the ball. Offensively, he is like giving us really, really good force offensively, and like I really enjoy playing with him. He's a great guy, great guy, and he's playing with amazing force, with the heart, you know, he's doing heart every game on the court.
What do you think makes a team great on the road?
That’s a good question. Obviously it's always harder to win on the road, especially most of the games, it's going to be close and tight. When you have a closer, like Steph Curry, Chris Paul, Klay, Andrew Wiggins, when you have a second unit who is really pushing in those minutes between the starters who are playing, I think that's the important thing.
And sometimes it's just like the body language, sometimes you just go out and present like “We are the Warriors!” and that kind of stuff and just go there and sometimes take the win. Sometimes it's not going to be easy, sometimes you need to steal one. Sometimes you struggle for the whole game and sometimes you need to just steal one. So I think if the Warriors come with their guard like champions in every road game, every game is going to be great for us and I think those guys who've been here for several years, you know, they have that mood so I think we're going to grab some away games for sure this year.
