Warriors: Through eight different starting lineups, one tendency that has remained is coach Steve Kerr's proclivity to have three "shooters" in the game at all times. Either Durant or Thompson, if not both, will be on court as long as the game is competitive. Others falling under the "shooter" category are Quinn Cook, power forward Jonas Jerebko and small forward Damion Lee. ... The bench, with the exception of big man Kevon Looney, did not play particularly well Saturday against the Kings. Fellow big Jordan Bell could use a bounce-back game, and he'll get an opportunity.

Magic: Vucevic is playing at All-Star level. The 7-foot USC product scored in double figures every game this season. He had 31 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists in a Sunday's win over the Lakers. The Warriors' big men will have their hands full. ... Bay Area native Gordon also is playing well and is likely to be assigned to defend Durant. ... The key reserves are shooting guard Terrence Ross, small forward Jonathan Simmons, point guard  Jerian Grant and rookie center Mo Bamba. ... Orlando is vulnerable on talent but doesn't give opponents much help, having committed the fourth fewest turnovers in the league.
