Warriors trounce Spurs without Leonard for 2-0 series lead


Stephen Curry leads the Golden State Warriors in a Game 2 blowout of the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Western Conference Finals.

LaMarcus Aldridge was particularly terrible, scoring just eight points on 4-of-11 shooting, adding four rebounds, three assists, and two blocks.

Without Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker, the Spurs just don't have enough to compete with the 67-win Warriors.

That hasn't translated to big-time statistical production, but he did his part during the regular season with averages of 6.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. (No team has ever won 207 total games in three consecutive seasons like Golden State has.) If they were tied at one game each with two at home coming up, we would all be glued to the television set during Games 3 and 4, even if Golden State ended up taking them both.

Leonard had helped San Antonio gain a commanding 78-55 lead in Oakland when he limped off with an ankle injury. So my buddy's like, 'Oh, you got to thank the Spurs for that.' Go to the next red light, more cops come, the bus is right on us.

Michael Bisping unable to fight, willing to wait for Georges St-Pierre
When White first declared the fight was off, we wondered whether Bisping and St-Pierre would accept the promotion's decision . I honestly don't think they're trying to put pressure on Georges. "I made this GSP fight, we did a press conference".

San Antonio shot just 37 percent after the injury, with twice as many turnovers as assists.

"Game 3 I expect to see a much different team". The Warriors had 39 assists - the most by any team this postseason - including 30 on their initial 38 baskets.

Leonard said he doesn't believe Pachulia fouled him on objective but also admitted he hasn't seen the replay. There is no easing into any game down there because they're already a unsafe team, especially being down 0-2 and getting Kawhi back.

Losing Leonard could be the story of this series, though coach Gregg Popovich had no update except that Leonard hurt the same foot.

Leonard left the game, after which the Spurs surrendered a 23-point lead and lost, but Mills said he was not anxious ahead of today's (AEST) game two. But I don't know.

"I don't think they started the game with belief and it showed in the lack of edge, intensity, grunt and all that sort of thing and that was disappointing", Popovich said.

Spurs: F Kawhi Leonard (L ankle sprain) was listed as doubtful and downgraded to out prior to tipoff.

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. "I think it was the pressure", Spurs point guard Patty Mills told reporters of the difference, according to ESPN.com.

"That play? I've watched it and, yeah, I thought he took an extra step", he said. The Warriors, who struggled to score in the first half, shot 58 percent after Leonard left and came up with the win.
