The Warriors made 6-of-9 3-point attempts in the first quarter, and 28 of their points came by way of an assist.
"It could have gone either way".
"I think we may have felt it too much - Kawhi being gone", Popovich said.
"I just give Klay a lot of credit". The Celtics kept changing up defenders guarding James, but he exposed them all and showed that there is no one in the league who can stop a determined James.
Over the past few years, the Warriors have been known for one thing: they self-create a chip on their shoulders and take it out on the opponent.
"It's the playoff. You've got to expect everything", Curry said.
"That was a huge pickup for us, obviously, with Andre out". They came out and challenged us heavy and put a nice run together. The NBA world called the Warriors' road to the Finals lucky after Leonard's injury (cough cough, Skip Bayless).
San Antonio fan Juan Vazquez filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Pachulia and the Warriors organization on behalf of Spurs season ticket holders and San Antonio card shop What's On Second, as first reported by the San Antonio Express-News. If Kawhi Leonard is back on the floor, everything changes. The Warriors finished the first half leading 72-44. After losing Game 1, Manu Ginobili told reporters he would rather lose by 20 points than lose the close game they played on Sunday. "Now the real challenge is going on the road and trying to get some wins". "It's going to be hard fought". Down by 31 in the second, Popovich opted to play his young guys. The Spurs hung on to end the quarter with a 90-81 lead.
At the halfway mark in the third, Curry raced up the court, and Spurs backup center Dewayne Dedmon lost his footing while backpedaling on defense. The Warriors held the Spurs to 21 points in the fourth, scored 32 points themselves, which allowed them to win.
Mills had a forgettable game, missing four of his six shots for five points. That's how ineffective Aldridge was Tuesday, finishing with eight points on 4-of-11 shooting. He was 8 of 13 from the field and 1of 2 from the free throw line. Davis Bertans had 13 points off the bench. "That's when we struggled".
David Lee acknowledged the the Spurs' loss to the Warriors in Game 1 still stings. Jonathon Simmons had 12 points. In the past three games, he's averaging 33.0 points and shooting 57 percent from the field and 49 percent from long distance.
Popovich argued that Pachulia intentionally slid his foot out to make contact with Leonard. "We have a good training staff that's working with him and try to get that ankle right". "Guys were playing off him and getting easy looks".
Aldridge admitted to having a hands-off off style of play during Game 2, but realized afterward that he needs to be his normal aggressive self if the team is to have any shot of coming back during this series. "So, it was tough".
