OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Sitting in the training room at one point earlier this season, Andrew Bogut wondered what Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and the rest of his teammates must have thought of him after all the talk about the two forming a potent inside-out combination.
Those questions might finally be answered.
Golden State's still-hobbled big man has broken out in a big way in the playoffs, showing just how much of a mark he can make when healthy enough. He had season-highs and career-playoff bests of 21 rebounds and 14 points in the Game 6 clincher against Denver on Thursday night and could be even more crucial to the Warriors' chances of pulling off another upset in the second round against Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs starting Monday.
