Curry, teammates reassure Pachulia anticipating hostile San Antonio reception

Curry, teammates reassure Pachulia anticipating hostile San Antonio reception

The Golden State Warriors picked up where they left off, dominating the San Antonio Spurs in game two for a commanding series lead in the Western Conference finals. It further adds that the Golden State big man "devastated the quality of the Spurs' chances of being competitive and having additional games in their home arena, both in the Western Conference Finals and also potentially in the NBA Finals" and also negatively affected "the value of the tickets purchased by plaintiff subsequent to their purchase". With Game 3 on Saturday in San Antonio, the Warriors lead the series 2-0.

The visitors shot 37-percent, well below the Warriors' 56.2 percent, while making just 8 of their 23 shots from 3-pointers compared to Golden State's 18-for-37 from long distance.

And determine whether injured superstar Kawhi Leonard might be healthy enough to return from an ankle injury, too.

They're up 2-0 in this series, and the Warriors are better, especially if and when the Spurs don't have Kawhi Leonard on the floor-and Leonard wasn't out there for Game 2 on Tuesday, so the revelation was not surprising.

San Antonio increased its margin by 25 points in the second quarter before the Warriors went on an 11-2 run capped off by a 3-point shot by Curry to make the score 46-32. We're playing very possibly the best team in the league...

"Either he's gonna play or he's not", Popovich said. "You've got to score".

An X-ray on Pachulia's bruised right heel was clear but he was scheduled for an MRI on Wednesday.

But with an imputed range of 4,500 kilometres the Hwasong-12 puts U.S. bases on the Pacific island of Guam within reach. Third, dialogue with North Korea is possible when the circumstances are right.

Of those nine teams to cover the first-half spread, five went on to cover the full-game line as well. We didn't come to play. The Warriors are still waiting for Klay Thompson to get into a flow offensively and join Curry, Durant, Draymond Green and a motivated supporting cast (the bench produced a season-high 63 points in Game 2).

"The thing that worries me is that he did it again, the exact same thing", Popovich said.

"Tonight, it's not what I expected".

The only thing that would make me happy is if the San Antonio Spurs file a lawsuit against the fan and the attorney filing said lawsuit for ignorance, stupidity and embarrassment to the organization and all sports fans everywhere. That's the way I process it.

"I don't think he needed to hear it, but just knowing that we all have his back is huge, especially at this juncture with the spotlight and the microscope that everybody's put on him", Curry said.

"And you have to believe". I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit feeling sorry for themselves psychologically, subconsciously, whatever psycho-babble word you want to use. For now, the time off until Saturday's game three should help Kawhi Leonard heal, but it won't end debate about what the National Basketball Association should do to ensure jump shooters have happy landings.

San Antonio isnt ready to let this best-of-seven series get away as it shifts home.

"They came out with a sense of urgency from the beginning and they played that way for 48 minutes", acting Warriors head coach Mike Brown told reporters. "Because if we don't we could end up losing the game". "There's nothing else to do".
