Draymond Green Says Warriors vs. Cavaliers NBA Finals Matchup Isn't Inevitable
19 May, 2017, 17:33
For two- and- a- half quarters of their game one Western Conference Finals matchup in Golden State, the San Antonio Spurs dominated the Warriors. His Spurs had just fallen into a two-games-to-none deficit with Game 3 coming Saturday night.
Danny Green opened the second quarter with a 3-pointer, but the Warriors' advantage would only grow from that point on.
"I don't think we believed", the veteran coach said. So I literally start to go and get in the far left lane to go through where we all go through.
"You have to believe". That's the way I process it. "Because if we don't we could end up losing the game". I don't think it was one guy who didn't believe and he infected everybody else or anything like that. George could join them just as they're ready to win and reap outsized credit for turning around the franchise. "He goes, 'Mike, I didn't know that was you, '" Brown recalled. The Spurs have become accustomed to owning the Western Conference come postseason play, but without superstars Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard, they seem like shells of their former selves.
"My approach to this game for 14 years that I've been in the league is to play hard and [give] 100 percent of whatever I have", Pachulia said Monday after practice.
It was a harsh but accurate evaluation. The same unit that scored just 13 combined points in Game 1 poured in 25 points in the first half alone. The Spurs were propelled by the outstanding play of Kawhi Leonard on the offensive and defensive end. So it's not surprising Popovich pulled no punches after his team's complete capitulation. Hopefully, some of his players will hear his comments and use it as ammunition to come out strong in Game 3 in front of the home crowd. "We got here just in time". "He can't be timid". To make things worse, ESPN announcers Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson, were debating over desserts in the second quarter to fill in time. He can't do it.

"You've got to be the aggressor. Scoring has to come from some place". "But when the game starts it's who wants to grab that momentum early and set the tone for the game, and I think we did that a little bit better tonight". Whether it's for himself or teammates. He's got to do it.
This story has been updated with quotes and post-game material from the Warriors' locker room at Oracle Arena. They are 10-0 in the playoffs this year and could match the best start in National Basketball Association playoff history with a victory in game three Saturday at San Antonio. He's used to playing on the big stage, but he hasn't thrived like this before.
That wasn't why the Spurs got blown out Tuesday night at least not on paper. Pau Gasol may have been a little better, but his lack of footspeed was on display against an opponent that looked to push the pace as much as possible. But this is Gregg Popovich, and these are the Spurs. The owners were only the fifth team in history, managed to start the playoffs with 10 consecutive victories. They would have had to trade the pick to Philadelphia if it fell outside the top three. "So I thought I would come out and try to move the ball".
"I just tell them what the deal is".
For the Lakers, they are pretty confident and have a great deal of belief that they're in position to get Paul George in 2018. That group showed a confidence, focus and effort that was notably absent on Tuesday night.
