Warriors taking on Spurs

The Warriors now lead 2-0 in the playoffs as the NBA Finals edge closer.

The play happened in front of the Spurs bench and Popovich was angry at the time and even more upset a day after San Antonio's 113-111 loss to the Warriors. And you want to know if our chances are less?

For the second game in a row, Steph Curry top-scored for the Warriors, scoring 29 points. Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry now have the benefit of the entire regular season under their belts and they are playing their best basketball of the year. "We always know that at some point we can string some stops together and we can put the ball in the hole".

"Our best player is down", Popovich said about the health of Leonard, their franchise player, and his availability for the upcoming playoff games. "We have a good training staff that's working with him and try to get that ankle right".

Curry also collected seven rebounds and seven assists in the comfortable victory as the Western Conference No. 1 seeded side took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven game series. You hate to see anybody get injured on a situation like that.

Ginobili added that the Spurs were mentally broken as a team when Leonard went down with his injury, and that the way they lost Game 1 - blowing a 25-point lead - was a awful way to start the series. "Because if we don't we could end up losing the game".

Friday was the first time Leonard had spoken to the media since he re-injured his ankle in Game 1.

"The only way I can process is that I don't think they believed".

Can we please just file this under the list of stupid things sports fans do that makes a mockery out of other fans who have common sense and aren't constantly looking for ways to waste money?

"And you have to believe". I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit feeling sorry for themselves psychologically. "You've got to be sharp for 48 minutes and you've got to take it to them", Spurs centre Pau Gasol said. In Leonard's absence, the team has shot 37 percent from the field, including 8-of-30 from 3-point range, while the Warriors are connecting on 57 percent of their shots, including 24-of-54 from deep.

The Spurs, who led by 23 points in the third quarter when Leonard left the game, lost Game 1.

It's hard to make a Game 3 prediction without knowing if Kawhi Leonard is going to play. Leonard scored 26 points in 24 minutes before leaving the opener and power forward LaMarcus Aldridge tried to pick up the slack while posting 28 points but missed a tying 3-point attempt in the final seconds.
