Russell Westbrook, who vowed to be better in Game 3, on what areas he is specifically focused on improving tonight: "Just win. Just win."

Smart said part of the reason he's here is that Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge told him it was important he help "coach from the bench" and stay involved with the team while he is injured.

Smart said he's walking fluidly, but still is "a couple weeks" away from even jogging, let alone getting back to running full speed. He is making progress, but his return is far from imminent.

Marcus Smart is here in Indy, and got some shots up during the team's shootaround. He described what happened when Nic Vucevic initially banged into his side feeling like "Mike Tyson giving me a body blow."

The Warriors certainly came out with an edge in Game 3, scoring 41 points in the opening quarter. That goes into the ledger as their second-most in a quarter of a playoff game under Steve Kerr, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

San Antonio has created separation with a 19-5 run to take a 112-94 lead with under five minutes left. Nuggets having trouble stopping the Spurs while Derrick White has dominated the matchup at point guard against Jamal Murray. Murray isn't moving great on defense after that spill he took but it doesn't matter on this night. White has torched Denver for 36 points, five assists and four rebounds on an efficient 15-for-20 shooting. Reminder, this is just White's third playoff game as a starter.

Kevon Looney has been everywhere since coming into the game a couple minutes ago. He's active and he's taken advantage of the space the Warriors are creating offensively. The focus Kerr wanted to see from his group to start the game has been there.

Jamal Murray has checked back into the game with 6:46 remaining but he did come in kneeling down to perhaps stretch his ankles before shaking both of his ankles.

Jamal Murray, badly outplayed by Derrick White, had the ball jarred loose by White for a steal and then the Nuggets guard took a spill and appeared to hurt his ankle. Moments later, Murray lost his footing as White drove by him toward the paint where he scored with the foul. Murray hobbled back to the bench with 8:52 left in the fourth with just three points on 1-for-5 shooting. White -- who also has a block on Murray too -- has 29 points, four rebounds and four assists with just over eight minutes left to play.
