Spurs start Jonathan Simmons over Kawhi Leonard for Game 2

Spurs start Jonathan Simmons over Kawhi Leonard for Game 2

The Warriors won't have to deal with Kawhi Leonard when they host Game 2 of the NBA's Western Conference finals against San Antonio Tuesday night.

Every day from now until the end of the season I will do my best to provide links to either watch or listen live to all National Basketball Association games.

Thomas' effort in Game 6 of the 1988 NBA Final against the Los Angeles Lakers likely goes down as the most memorable performance with a sprained ankle, even though it came in a losing cause. "I see the auto trying to inch forward, I'm like, 'He's about to get arrested.' I said, 'Pop, this is my own building.' He goes, 'I know, when I saw it was you, I died laughing'".

Leonard aggravated his left ankle injury on Sunday (NZT Monday) in game one of the best-of-seven series when he landed on Pachulia's foot after taking a jump shot early in the third quarter.

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

Even though both Leonard and Pachulia said afterward that neither believed there was anything nefarious about the play, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich ripped Pachulia the next day, calling what he did a "totally unnatural closeout". We've played fairly well in the playoffs.

Be proactive - Use the "Flag as Inappropriate" link at the upper right corner of each comment to let us know of abusive posts. Right before that, Kawhi stepped on David Lee's foot and tweaked his ankle. It's happened to me as well, and once you play this kind of physical game, intense game, things happen. "We'll figure it out".




Yes, the Golden State Warriors are a much better team, but Pop has a base strategy to work from. You know, we don't know what's going to happen in the East. There is no deviation in terms of our attack and our game plan. "At the end, all we did was what we were supposed to do, we took care of home court".

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. The Warriors, who struggled to score in the first half, shot 58 percent after Leonard left and came up with the win.

The Jazz's starting point guard and third leading scorer in the playoffs, George Hill, has been out of action since Game 2 with a toe injury and his replacement, Shelvin Mack did all he could in his place, only scoring 11 points. The Warriors defeated the Spurs 113-111.

I'll be honest, I never thought much of Zaza Pachulia, and I don't mean that as if I thought poorly of him or somehow thought of myself as "better" than he is. So it makes it a lot less predictable. "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". Don't lose them. For the rest of this season, it's about habits.

"It's the same play", Brown said.

Iguodala had an MRI but the results weren't yet available when practice ended.

The Warriors should get another nice boost from coach Steve Kerr, who is well enough that he plans to travel with the team to San Antonio on Thursday. Recovering from a follow-up procedure May 5 at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak that stems from a pair of surgeries following the 2015 championship run, the 51-year-old Kerr returned to practice for the first time in more than three weeks Saturday.
