Spurs Officially List Kawhi Leonard as Questionable

Rita Gibson | 12 May, 2017, 20:31

Pau Gasol paired 10 points with 11 boards for San Antonio, which trailed 5-4 in the first quarter before rolling to victory.

The San Antonio Spurs are a win away from the Western Conference finals, while the Houston Rockets need a win to stay alive in the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs.

James Harden was downright bad for Houston. "We just have to concentrate and focus".

Leonard's injury is another blow to a team already without Tony Parker, after the veteran suffered a season-ending quadriceps injury in Game 2. He made that 3-pointer to whittle the lead a bit, but it didn't get the Rockets going.

As for the timing of Lavrov's meeting, it was scheduled well in advance of Comey's firing. Attorney General, saying the Tuesday canning of Comey betrayed the public's trust.

When the Spurs opened the second half with an 8-1 burst sparked by six points from Aldridge, the advantage ballooned to 26 points.

The Spurs know that limiting Golden State's 3-point shooting will be a key in the next round, just as slowing Houston from long range was in the conference semifinals. The Spurs shot 53.1 percent had coughed it up just seven times. He came off the bench to score 12 points, grab seven rebounds and hand out five assists.

The most interesting part of the blowout might have been the mini-scuffle between Green and Ariza. Leonard didn't do much at shootaround and may still be feeling the effects from Tuesday's injury. Eric Gordon was a non-factor with six points. The 75 points Houston scored on Thursday night was a season low and the fewest points the franchise had scored in a playoff game since managing just 70 against the Los Angeles Lakers on May 17, 2009.

The next best thing to a Game 7 is upon us this weekend, when dual Game 6s take place with two teams looking to advance while the others have their back against the wall as they seek to fight off elimination. The victor of the semi-final will take on the Golden State Warriors in the best-of-seven West finals.
