"It could have gone either way".
As for Pachulia, this has cause such a media fallout that there are calls for the National Basketball Association to address this type of manoeuvre as it has happened many times before, and Popovich certainly has a point when he says intent shouldn't come into it. I just hope it's more competitive. "We can't allow them to get off to the start they had last game". Golden State registered 39 assists on 50 field goals and drained 18 3-pointers, 10 more than its opponent. He scored 12 points in the fourth quarter. As part of his case, he quotes Popovich's interview on May 15, wherein the Spurs coach bluntly states that a "two-step, lead-with-your-foot close-out is not appropriate".
"You've got to take it to them".
"That was a huge pickup for us, obviously, with Andre out". "We always know that at some point we can string some stops together and we can put the ball in the hole".
Warriors: Coach Steve Kerr attended his second game this series but again watched behind the scenes as he recovers from a May 5 procedure at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak. One player specifically who saved his worst performance of the postseason for Game 2 against the Warriors is Lamarcus Aldridge. In that regard, the rust was quite prevalent and the Spurs took an advantage of it, too. The Spurs outrebounded Golden State 49-40 in Game 2, and San Antonio's 22 offensive rebounds were the most the Warriors have given up in any game this season.
"70-42, but there's still a half to play". If Kawhi Leonard is back on the floor, everything changes.
While the Spurs missing their MVP, the Warriors are enjoying a career-best shooting spectacle from theirs. Pachulia's closeout on Leonard in Game 1 which was called out by Popovich led to Leonard's third sprained ankle in a week, which swung the series in the Warriors' favor.
Brown said nullifying the streak shooting of the always moving Australian was one of the keys to the series. But at the same time, you have to read it, you have to make plays, and sometimes you're going to make mistakes. "We can't ease into the game", Brown said of his ailing boss' address to the team in the locker room before the game. The Spurs hung on to end the quarter with a 90-81 lead. The highlight was when poor Dewayne Dedmon and his ankles felt the full brunt of Curry's powers in the third quarter. He played six minutes, providing four points and two assists. After scoring a playoff-high 136 points in Game 3, the Warriors have managed to total 207 points in the last six quarters.
According to a lawsuit obtained by KSAT, Spurs fan and business owner Juan Vasquez has filed a request for a temporary restraining order and temporary injunction against the Warriors.
Simmons made two free throws later for the Spurs, but Curry tied the game at 106-106 with a trey and Green made a driving layup for the lead.
