Warriors’ half-court magic formula? 10 Minute Fire, Movie and Snacks

At halftime, when Golden State’s game plan fell apart and their emotional balance was shaken, head coach Steve Kerr and his pit crew had 10 minutes to sort everything out.

That’s when the half-court magic happens. That was when the Warriors were Superman in the phone booth, reminding the basketball world why they were going to the NBA Finals for the sixth time in the past eight seasons.


The Warriors’ halftime magic wasn’t undefeated. Despite leading 12-4 in the playoffs, the Warriors have lost the third quarter six times. But in the Western Conference finals against the Dallas Mavericks, in the Warriors’ four wins, they led the Mavericks by an average of 9.5 points in the third quarter before winning by an average of 10.8 points.

In the regular season, the Warriors led the league by plus-minus in the third quarter, leading by 2.5 points. The Boston Celtics are No. 2 with a 2.2. The Warriors at home were exceptionally strong in the third quarter, leading their opponents by a league-high 4.4 points. The home Celtics are second with 2.9.
