    导出博客文章MILWAUKEE -- Draymond Green knew what was coming.Golden State was up by two and
    had to defend an inbounds pass from the Milwaukee Bucks with 10.1 seconds left
    on the Warriors side of the court. Green had the assignment of guarding Giannis
    Antetokounmpo, the Bucks athletic 6-foot-11 forward.Green tipped away the pass,
    Klay Thompson secured the loose ball before hitting two critical foul shots, and
    the Warriors held on to beat Milwaukee 124-121 on Saturday night for their
    seventh straight victory.Thats what Draymond does. He sees the game. He knows
    whats coming, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. All I saw was that he got a hand
    on it and Klay ended up with it. Ive seen that before. Draymond is unbelivable
    in those situations.Kevin Durant scored 33 points, while Thompson had 25 of his
    29 in the second half.But they had to hold off a late charge by the Bucks after
    leading by as much as 14 points. Jabari Parker and Antetokounmpo led a 13-4 run
    in the fourth quarter that cut it to 122-120 with about 2 1/2 minutes left on
    Parkers three-point play.The guys fought for 48 minutes, coach Jason Kidd
    said.Rowdy Bucks fans had designs of an upset of Golden State at the Bradley
    Center, just like last season. The teams exchanged empty possessions before
    Greens sparkling defensive effort with 10 seconds left.Once Giannis was down on
    the block, I already knew what they were running. I was just waiting on them to
    pass the ball in, Green said.Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points, while Parker
    had 28.Theres no satisfaction, weve got to keep getting better, Antetokounmpo
    said. As a team were not a finished product yet.TIP-INSWarriors: Durant gave the
    Warriors a brief scare after he got up slowly after bumping into Parker with 9
    minutes left in the third quarter. Trainers appeared to be looking at Durants
    leg during a timeout, and Durant stayed in the game. He looked fine after
    running down the lane for a dunk that gave the Warriors an 85-78 lead with 5:58
    left in the period. Durant had 25 points in the first half on 8-of-10 shooting.
    ... Golden State won its third straight road game despite a subpar shooting
    night for Stephen Curry, who was 1 of 11 from behind the arc. Curry finished
    with 20 points.Bucks: The Bucks trailed 69-66 at halftime in spite of a
    season-high offensive output in the first half. It was also a season-high points
    allowed in the first half for Milwaukee. Antetokounmpo had 16 before halftime,
    when the Bucks shot 59 percent. A 37-point first quarter was also a season-high
    for that quarter for the Bucks.FRIENDLY CHALLENGEKerr issued a good-natured,
    last-minute challenge to Bucks fans before the game.Kerr said that if a fan
    showed up with a 10-3 shirt, he would give that fan two tickets to a Golden
    State home game, though there were several other stipulations, too. First and
    foremost, the Bucks had to win.The Warriors were 10-2 entering Saturday nights
    game. Kerrs dare was in reference to how Bucks fans confidently wore 24-1 shirts
    ahead of the Warriors visit last season to Milwaukee on Dec. 12.I am not giving
    them a plane ticket, or a place to stay, but Ill give (them) a couple tickets to
    a game, Kerr said.He never had to follow through.QUOTABLEYou feed off that
    energy. You need that as a team ... Whoever believes in us and wants us to be
    great, hopefully they can come to the arena and watch us play. -- Antetokounmpo
    about the energetic fans in the fourth quarter.UP NEXTWarriors: Wrap up a
    four-game road trip with a visit to the Indiana Pacers on Monday.Bucks: Host
    Orlando on Monday. The Bucks have won seven of their last eight home games
    against the Magic.---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP

    briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams
    including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. The Hungaroring may
    not have changed a great deal during the past 30 years but Hungary itself is a
    very different place. There was a certain amount of trepidation on both sides in
    1986 as F1 ventured into an Eastern Bloc country for the first time and Hungary
    braced itself to receive this glitzy moving monument to meritocracy and western
    self-indulgence. Talk about coming at each other from opposite ends of the
    political and social spectrum.The need for a visa backed up rumours of massive
    queues at Budapest airport -- assuming you could find a flight with anyone other
    than Malév, the national airline. With the first Hungarian Grand Prix being
    back-to-back with Austria, we decided to fly to Vienna, hire a decent car
    (another rumour -- which turned out to be correct -- suggested the range of hire
    vehicles at Budapest might be better suited to the London to Brighton vintage
    run), cross the border and use this car for the return trip west to the
    ?sterreichring.The plan seemed to be working well until we hit a massive queue
    at the Hungarian border. Over an hour later, our papers stamped, we feared a
    late arrival might jeopardise our hotel booking. Best make a phone call. Easier
    said than done.In the absence of payphones, we were directed to a seedy room
    where a telephonist informed us that a call to Budapest, no more than a couple
    of hours away, was not possible. Even though we were trying to connect with the
    countrys capital city, the rules said calls could not be made to anywhere more
    than 15 kms distant. Apparently this was how you kept potentially threatening
    communication and insurgency at bay. Welcome to Hungary.In fact, such a poor
    initial impression would not be representative of a humble country bending over
    backwards to accommodate this brash circus marching into town. It was just that
    we had to adapt as much as the locals.Money could not be exchanged before
    arrival -- the better for Hungary to control the rate at official bureaux in the
    city. That was the theory. We quickly discovered the American Dollar was king
    and a black market was in full swing.Being perfectly capable of carrying our own
    bags, we wondered why the porter in this modest establishment insisted on
    helping. In a scene from a B-rate spy movie, he furtively looked up and down the
    corridor before slipping into the bedroom and asking if we needed Forints at a
    favourable rate. He then came close -- and Im not exaggerating -- to hurriedly
    conducting the transaction in the cupboard lest anyone should be watching.
    Having acquired the currency, the next thing was to spend it. Again, easier said
    than done.Beneath exteriors blackenned by noxious fumes from two-stroke engines,
    you could sense a majestic city fighting to maintain its colossal
    dignity.dddddddddddd The streets were completely devoid of the glaring neon
    signs directing or tempting us today. Shops that actually had windows looked
    like post-war Britain when rationing was high, supplies low and choice a luxury.
    One window proudly displayed a single giant box of Daz soap powder and very
    little else that was recognisable as something you might need.Restaurants
    (except one or two at the high end, very expensive and therefore very F1) were
    unmarked and gloomy. No one spoke English; the menu -- a tatty sheet of paper --
    was unintelligible. We ate a form of stew. I think. The wine was unspeakable.
    With such limited cuisine, you will not be surprised to learn that the opening
    of the first McDonalds two years later required a major police presence to
    control the customers. We happily joined a queue stretching round the block. A
    Big Mac never tasted so good.On a similar theme in 1986, our rental Opel Kadett
    from Austria felt like a Rolls Royce compared to the assortment of machinery
    found chugging along the cobbled streets. The Trabant (known derisively as an
    Ashtray) was the most popular, albeit at the bottom of a not very distinguished
    list of personal transport manufactured in the East. Driving along the motorway
    towards the track, we noticed with admiration and amazement that one
    enterprising Trabant owner had fitted the luxury of soft-top. As we got closer
    and peered through the belching smoke screen, we discovered it was the actual
    roof that had become detached fore and aft and was billowing in the breeze.There
    was nothing shoddy about the track and facilities, the Hungaroring playing a
    more than adequate host to fussy F1 folk. With 200,000 spectators turning up on
    race day (the majority arriving by bus), traffic was a nightmare. Unless you had
    an official escort. Attaching ourselves to one fast-moving convoy, we saw the
    scary power of the police as locals almost flung themselves off the road at the
    first hint of officialdom. And if they failed to see the demand for right of
    way, an outriders boot left a heavy impression not only in the Trabants bodywork
    but also in the mind of its terrified driver.The mood and methods of authority
    are different now, Budapest having slowly emerged in all its glory as a truly
    cosmopolitan city. Thirty years ago, we wondered if we would ever go back.
    Today, F1 would be deeply disappointed if it did not. ' ' '
