Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey. Thats what makes Steph who he is.Golden State was coming off a 106-100 victory over Phoenix on Sunday.TIP-INSWarriors: Kerr was asked pregame if the team was in danger of looking past Portland to the Thunder and Durants first game against his former team on Thursday.

He had the most points for a first game with the Blazers since Lillard had 23 as a rookie in 2012.Layman was a second-round pick in last Junes NBA draft out of Maryland.In the position Im in, no matter when you go in youve got to play hard.
