Warriors return to pass-happy blueprint in rout of Hawks

Warriors return to pass-happy blueprint in rout of Hawks The Warriors opened the season 10-1, only to suddenly endure injuries to key players, a rift between Draymond Green and Kevin Durant, and a rash of losses. In its 128-111 win Monday night over the Hawks at State Farm Arena, Golden State finally returned to the pass-happy, free-flowing style that has defined its three championship runs in the past four years. That it came against one of the NBA’s worst teams hardly seemed to matter for a Golden State franchise eager to recapture its usual dominance.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Under center at the 1-yard line, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota checked out of a quarterback sneak, and Derrick Henry did the rest — as much with his arms as his legs.

The Jaguars (4-9) have lost eight of their last nine.

Johnson called Henry's 99-yarder "amazing" and congratulated Henry after passing him for the team record.

Marcus Mariota, wearing black tape on the back of his right hand, threw for 162 yards. The Titans outgained the Jaguars 426-255, and they also had four sacks.

Jacksonville came in with the league's fifth-best scoring defense after shutting out Andrew Luck for the first time in the NFL. But Jacksonville has been susceptible against the run, ranked 16th giving up 108.4 yards. Henry nearly matched that on his record-tying run.

Henry's TD capped a huge swing over two plays.

Titans rookie Cameron Batson muffed the punt at the Titans 7 before recovering at the 1 and being tackled in the end zone for a safety. The Jaguars took the ensuing free kick and drove downfield where they picked up a fourth-and-1 at the Titans 5. Then the Titans stopped the Jaguars on the next four plays, the last with rookie linebacker Rashaan Evans tripping up Leonard Fournette.

In rout of Cavaliers, Warriors show just how much has changed in six months

In rout of Cavaliers, Warriors show just how much has changed in six months CLEVELAND — As he jogged onto the court for pregame warmups Wednesday evening, Warriors forward Kevin Durant saw a sea of maroon seats and thought about all that has changed in less than six months. One hundred and eighty days earlier, Golden State had silenced a raucous Quicken Loans Arena crowd with a Game 4 win to cap its NBA Finals sweep of the Cavaliers. Now, in the Warriors’ first trip back to Cleveland since hoisting the 2017-18 Larry O’Brien trophy, Durant was feeling nostalgic. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.
