Curry, Warriors boat race Leonard-less Spurs, swipe 2-0 lead
20 May, 2017, 01:21
In Game 1, the Spurs had a 23-point lead over the Warriors at the start of the third quarter when Kawhi Leonard landed on Zaza Pachulia's precariously placed foot and turned his ankle.
Kevin Durant added 16 points in limited minutes as the Warriors built a 41-point lead, the Spurs' largest playoff deficit under head coach Gregg Popovich. Showing no signs of letting up, the lead reached double digits after a long three-pointer by Curry put Golden State ahead 20-10 with 4:52 left in the first quarter. "We miss him out there, but he'll get healthy and in the meantime it's up to the rest of us to stay ready".
"Steve (Kerr) told our guys we've got to come out and play with a sense of urgency from the beginning. We had to go take it".
"It looked pretty collective to me".
"I think Klay is one of our top three guys and to not be on an All-NBA team I think it's pretty insane".
Brown said he did the right thing by just cooperating.
Teams are sure to have taken notice with Simmons set to become a restricted free agent this summer. You can't sugarcoat it or - if we had just made a couple shots, we could have been right there. We felt sorry for ourselves.
The Western Conference Finals are well under way, with Kawhi Leonard's injury paving the way for a Warriors 2-0 advantage going into Game 3.
On his way into last night's game, he was almost late after a run-in with the cops outside of the arena, as he tried to pull in around the same time as the San Antonio Spurs team bus. We need to get slapped and come back and play Game 3, and see who we are.
X-rays were negative and an MRI is scheduled for Wednesday.
Golden State quickly established its pass-happy, up-tempo style to take the Spurs out from the opening tip.
The bench contributed a season-best 63 points.
However, just showing up to the arena proved to be more hard than Mike Brown expected last night. He had 26 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals before heading to the locker room in the third. The Warriors had 39 assists - the most by any team this postseason - including 30 on their initial 38 baskets.
Popovich had no guess about Leonards status for Game 3, saying it would likely be decided as late as Friday or Saturday.
Leonard, particularly, had never been playing better at the time of his injury. "It just depends on how the ankle heals". "I'd probably list him as questionable". Youve got to understand exactly the things that we did better tonight. They know I'm telling the truth, and there is no reason I'd do anything different. You know, I don't understand it. Michael C. Wright of ESPN wrote about the Spurs troubles in Game 2, and quoted Aldridge on his poor performance. He also worked out with point guard Patty Mills.
Popovich suggested his team had been unable to mentally cope with the loss of Leonard for Game 2. Vazquez filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Pachulia and the Warriors on behalf of Spurs season ticket holders and a local card shop, asking for $73,000 in damages and a temporary restraining order against Pachulia. With the average juice on a first-half bet being -110, a $100 wager on each of those nine 0-2 Game 3 situations would have raked in more than $818 so far in the playoffs.
