Where's the drama? Blowouts the rule in these NBA playoffs

Referring to Golden State forward Draymond Green, Rose said: "Draymond talked a lot after the game how basically he was gassed at halftime because the team had been off multiple days and the Spurs were just coming off a series and seemed the team more in shape to perform at the beginning of the game". San Antonio has been outscored 194-133 since Leonard's injury.
Kerr remained off the sideline as he recovers from an operation to fix a spinal fluid leak, and Mike Brown continued filling in as acting coach. "We can't ease into the game", Brown said of his ailing coach's address to the team in the locker room before the game. Well we've had a pretty damn good season, we've played fairly well in the playoffs, I think we're getting better and we're up 23 points in the third quarter against Golden State and Kawhi goes down, like that.
Leonard or no Leonard, Popovich insisted the series is over if his team doesn't get an attitude adjustment.
Mills said the emotion the Spurs felt from losing Leonard in what Popovich described as a risky and unsportsmanlike play by Warriors' centre Zaza Pachulia should have fired up his team, not subdued them.
A Game 3 return for Leonard in the series of Warriors and Spurs still offers a flicker of hope, but nobody really wants to be down for a couple of games to these Golden State, no matter what their recent history with 3-1 leads might suggest.
Unfortunately, we probably won't get a chance to see him try.
Watching great players overcome great obstacles is the best version of sports.
Number of three-pointers Golden State hit against San Antonio, with the game's highest scorer, Stephen Curry, accounting for six of them. In his 24 minutes, he scored 26 points on 7-of-13 shooting, eight rebounds and three assists. He had four rebounds and two assists in seven first quarter minutes, highlighted by that dive, catch and dunk off a nifty Steph Curry assist.
"It's fun to watch".
Think back to the very first game of this National Basketball Association postseason: A one-point nail-biter of a win for Cleveland over IN, that outcome not getting decided until the final second.
Golden State had trailed by as many as 25 in the series opener before rallying for a two-point win. "If he's got it going, give him the ball". "So that was huge", Curry said. If you want to see an example lineup, you can find it on the final slide of the post, but I suggest you adjust your lineup to fit your personal taste.
Cleveland's LeBron James has been named to the All-NBA first team for a record-tying 11th time, and Houston's James Harden is the lone player to be a unanimous first-team selection this season.
Australian point guard Mills declined to agree or disagree with Popovich's assessment and instead said he was focused on looking ahead.
India mentioned in the application that Pakistan is in violation of the Vienna Convention by denying consular access to Jadhav. India demands suspension of Jadav's death sentence. "India has used this court as the scene of political theatre".
It makes more sense for the Boston Celtics to wait a year and most likely have another trip to the playoffs. The Celtics next pick in the draft, barring any trades, isn't until No. 37 overall from the Timberwolves .
