Did LaMarcus Aldridge Intentionally Step Under Kevin Durant?

18 Mai 2017

Tuesday's Western Conference Finals game between the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs was flat out boring.

Leonard had an MRI on Monday and Popovich had no timetable on when he'd be able to return to action.

"LaMarcus has to score for us".

When Zaza Pachulia just happened to undercut Kawhi Leonard while slowly closing in on him, placing a foot on an ankle that had previously been injured and even re-aggravated during the game, the dynamic of the series changed instantly. San Antonio's great ball movement and offensive scheme will always allow them to put up points. "It's unsafe, it's unsportsmanlike, it's just not what anybody does, to anybody else". It's just not what anybody does to anybody else.

"It's not what I expected", Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said after the Warriors' 136-100 conquest.

"This is the game of basketball, a lot of insane stuff happens on the court, unfortunately", he said. Been happening forever since I've been in the league. After the game he said it wasn't intentional, that Aldridge was just doing what bigs do.

And with the approach of summer, the Academy Award victor was proudly feeling "no fear" as she bared her birthday suit once again in a sexy Instagram post on Tuesday.

"I don't know what is going to happen to Zaza", Bowen said, "but if that had been me, I know what would have happened: suspension". "That's pretty lame. So, call it like it is, and we didn't come to play. I'll have to see the play". "So one would logically think maybe it will take longer, but I'm hoping that's not true and we'll have him for Game 3". I wish he hadn't landed on my foot, and honestly I had no idea he had landed on my foot until I turned back and he was already on the ground.

But Popovich wasn't buying any defense from Pachulia about lack of intent.

It can't just be, 'Oh it was inadvertent. You ever hear of manslaughter? I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit of feeling sorry for themselves psychologically, subconsciously, whatever psycho-babble word you want to use. "And the history there makes me very very angry". He might expect to explain LaMarcus Aldridge's closeout on Kevin Durant from the second quarter, though.

"It's the same play", Brown said. It's a tough basketball play. You go back and watch the film, they're both identical: "two guys shooting the ball, two big guys going out to contest, they slide under the shooter a little bit — neither one I think on goal — and one happens to land on one's foot and the other one doesn't". Rookie Patrick McCaw had 18 points and five assists off the bench shooting 6 for 8 as Golden State earned its most lopsided victory of the playoffs to go to 10-0.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven series goes on Saturday night at the AT&T Center. He made all 11 of his free throws.
