Andre Iguodala out for Warriors with soreness in left knee

Andre Iguodala out for Warriors with soreness in left knee

Leonard didn't return after the play, giving Golden State an opening for an 18-0 run that keyed the comeback.

"That's just been the message all year, just play with urgency and start the game off with some energy and throw the first punch", Durant said. "Took us a minute to figure it out to get up to that game speed after this little break". "We can't allow them to get off to the start they had last game".

"The belief still within the group is that no matter who is on the floor or not, we've got a great opportunity and we believe we can go and get this done".

Simmons was the lone bright spot for the Spurs, scoring 22 points but his supporting cast was non-existent. But you go back and watch the film, and they're both identical. "But this is crap", Popovich said. "The truth always quote-un-quote sets you free". And you want to know how we feel? We've played fairly well in the playoffs.

From a handicapping perspective, I see too many factors in the Spurs favor despite Leonard being out for Game 2.

Only one thing is for certain: when these two teams face off again Tuesday in Game 2 of these Western Conference finals, there will be plenty of attention paid to wherever everyone's feet are located, for all 48 minutes.

Iguodala sat out the second half on Sunday, although Brown insisted afterward it was more of a coach's decision than a necessity.




To be honest, I had no idea just how hated Pachulia was around the National Basketball Association until his little stunt on Sunday afternoon against Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs. It was a drastic difference from a game of catch-up two days earlier when the Warriors rallied from 25 down and a 20-point halftime deficit. Well, we've had a pretty damn good season.

"I'm like, 'Warriors acting coach, '" he said, pointing to the logo on his shirt. He played six minutes, providing four points and two assists. For a stretch, he wasn't even on the bench with the rest of the team. They turned it over nine times in the first half, but more importantly the Warriors scored 16 points off those turnovers.

"I have no idea".

"LaMarcus has to score for us", Popovich said. "I'd probably list him as questionable. I'm disappointed", Popovich said. "So one would logically think maybe it will take longer, but I'm hoping that's not true and that we'll have him for Game 3". It was LaMarcus Aldridge's time to step up as the best player on the Spurs roster, and he didn't answer the call as he played his worst game of the playoffs. Patty Mills, playing in place of the injured Tony Parker, had another quiet night.

Following an MRI on Monday afternoon, Kawhi Leonard's ankle was reportedly left without structural damage. They finished with 39 assists as a team, which is the most assists by any team in a game this postseason. The others in double digits were Draymond Green (13), Klay Thompson (11), Ian Clark (10) and Shaun Livingston (10).

The Warriors demolished the Spurs 136-100 in Oakland, California, on Tuesday to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven NBA Western Conference Finals series. Fouled Out-None. Rebounds-San Antonio 49 (Dedmon 9), Golden State 40 (Dr.Green 9).
