Warriors laugh about Jazz coach's timeout; adult tries to steal Curry-signed shoe from kid

There's something about the Warriors.

Whenever Golden State comes to Salt Lake City some kind of incident gets the attention of national media. Fans may remember post-game interview miscommunications and collapsing guard rails during the Warriors' two visits to Utah last season.

Thursday's 106-99 Warriors' victory over the Jazz was no exception.

After building a big lead on the back of a 29-1 first-half run, Golden State was cruising to a 20th victory when the shorthanded Jazz chipped into the lead, pulling within five points of the Warriors in the fourth quarter.

The Warriors were able to regain control, but the Jazz continued to press and prolong the game, contributing to the Kevin Durant's frustration. He received a technical foul for arguing with the referee with nine seconds left in the game. Teammate Draymond Green tried to help loosen the mood by sharing a laugh at Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder's efforts.

“We were laughing that Quin Snyder kept calling timeouts,” Green told reporters, including the San Jose Mercury News. “Like, bro, you’re down 10 with six seconds left. It’s kind of over my man. Let’s just go to the restaurant, have a good dinner and just chill.”

For the record, the Jazz were down eight points with nine seconds left. Joe Ingles made one free-throw with three seconds left after the timeout to cut the final difference to seven points.

After the game, Warriors star Stephen Curry signed his sneakers and tried to hand one of the pair to a young Golden State fan — only to have an adult fan try to run off with it.

Security personnel were able to recover the shoe and give it back to the fan.
