Kawhi Leonard expected to play Sunday against Warriors

19 Mai 2017

San Antonio only allowed 8.1 3-pointers made per game this season, a key defensive trait against a Warriors team that went 8-13 this season when making fewer than 10 3-pointers in a game.

"Pray", said the acid-tongued San Antonio coach. "I've been on both sides of this thing". "The playoffs for us have been rough". I'd be extremely surprised if they win two games. "It's short rest, so I assume he's going to be ready". There's no Tony, no Kawhi as of right now.

"It's just such a hard task at hand for this Spurs team. We'll figure it out".

The Leonard-less Spurs handed the Rockets a humiliating end to their surprise season on Thursday night at the Toyota Center, closing out the series with a 114-75 win that pits them against the vaunted Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals that will start on Sunday (Monday NZT).

Popovich was then told that Brown recently took a shot at him, calling him 70 years old, and saying that he could beat him up.

"Everyone is on the same page on what we're trying to achieve", said Mills.

Golden State had a record-setting 73 wins in their 15-16 season, as they clinched the West, and won 67 games in their 16-17 campaign.

"Everybody contributed. It was a real team effort with (32) assists and just (seven) turnovers". He finished the first quarter without attempting a single shot and shied away from such opportunities all game long. The Warriors could be a bit rusty with all that time off, and they are 2-7 ATS in their past nine playing on three of more days of rest.

"It makes them less predictable", Golden State forward Draymond Green said. You know, it hurts.

Watch him here: he stays as the ball goes baseline, in case he can help, backs out to play free safety as the ball passes the basket, checks to see where the pass may go, cuts off the angle and deflects it, causing the turnover.

James Harden has been discussed as a potential regular-season MVP candidate.

Despite taking an early 1-0 series lead, the Rockets struggled to sustain the momentum against Gregg Popovich's experienced outfit.

At 47 years old, Brown is almost 20 years younger than the 68-year-old Popovich, but I don't know if he should take Pop so lightly.

Iguodala had an MRI but the results weren't yet available when practice ended. "They're a fast paced team". Brown spent part of last season working unofficially alongside Popovich and is now coaching Golden State in place of the ailing Kerr, who attended practice Saturday for the first time in more than three weeks as he recovers from his latest procedure to fix a spinal fluid leak that left him dealing with debilitating symptoms.
