NBA Desperate Spurs vow aggressive fightback against Warriors

21 Mai 2017

Just more than 30 hours remain until the Spurs take the court against the Golden State Warriors, doing so at home for the first time in these Western Conference Finals. Youve got to understand exactly the things that we did better tonight. I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit feeling sorry for themselves psychologically.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, Spurs fan Juan Vazquez filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Pachulia and the Golden State Warriors.

Popovich was left perplexed and downright disgusted that his team got dominated in such embarrassing fashion without Leonard, who re-injured his tender left ankle in Game 1 after stepping on Pachulia's foot. Pachulia was whistled for a foul on the play, and found himself in the center of controversy after many on social media questioned whether he had tried to injure Leonard intentionally. So did Durant, who finished with 16 points after his huge 34-point Game 1, and Green, who had 13. In addition to being a Defensive Player of the Year candidate, he leads San Antonio this postseason in scoring (27.7), rebounding (7.8), assists (4.6) and steals (1.7).

Had Leonard played in Game 2, the outcome likely would have been the same.

Just look at how they went and handled the Houston Rockets after getting blown out in the first game of their last series. The Warriors immediately went on an 18-0 run and outscored San Antonio 58-33 after Leonard's exit en route to a 113-111 triumph.

Leonard was dismissive of the question when he was asked about the play Friday. "Once we settled in, as opposed to trying to get it all back in one play, it started working for us".

Pachulia didn't come out for the second half because of a bruised right heel. They were ahead 72-44 at halftime and were up 106-75 heading into the fourth period. "Defense wasn't there. They also got a lot of rebounds".

That wasn't the only injury the Spurs were playing through. You can listen to Spurs vs. Warriors Game 2 live steam as well as all other games in the 2017 NBA Playoffs by signing up with a one-time payment of $9.99.

"Definitely, but we're eight games away from our ultimate goal", Leonard said.

Golden State is just the fifth National Basketball Association team to win its first 10 playoff games in a given postseason.

"I think we may have felt it too much - Kawhi being gone", Popovich said.

"When you are missing your most experienced player and your starting point guard, and then you lose your leading scorer and your go-to guy, and you are coming from losing a game like the one we did, it's very hard to overcome", Ginobili said.
