Spurs' Kawhi Leonard questionable for Game 3

SAN ANTONIO - The availability of Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard remained in question Thursday for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals as the team took part in its first practice in preparation for Saturday's matchup against the Golden State Warriors.

Leonard left the game and sat our for Game 2, which the Warriors won handily to take a 2-0 series lead.

Leonard is averaging 27.7 points on 52.5 percent shooting, 7.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists during the postseason.

The San Antonio Spurs desperately need MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard on the court for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

"When the game starts, it's whoever wants to grab that momentum early and set the tone for the game, and I think we did that a little bit better tonight".

Leonard has been listed as questionable for Game 3 for the San Antonio Spurs.

"I mean, Zaza is my teammate", he said.

"You have to believe".

Jonathon Simmons had a team-high 22 points for the Spurs, who fell behind 0-2 in a play-off series for the first time since being swept by Phoenix in the West semi-finals in 2010. I really do. But I'm going to suggest that every criticism be accompanied by - make that preceded by - at least one positive statement, or idea for how he can be used effectively, or both.

What time does the San Antonio Spurs vs.

Five other Warriors connected on multiple 3-pointers in an 18-for-37 barrage that dwarfed the Spurs' 8-for-23 success from beyond the arc.

The NBA said Monday that Pachulia will not face any discipline and that the play will stand as called.

The San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors Game 2 kicks off at 9:00 p.m.

"The schedule comes in and helps us out", guard Shaun Livingston said.

Kerr is recovering from a May 5 procedure at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak and Mike Brown has been coaching during his absence, but the reigning NBA Coach of the Year has been attending practices again and addressing the team in the locker room while watching games behind the scenes. You know, I don't understand it. So did Durant, who finished with 16 points after his huge 34-point Game 1, and Green, who had 13. "That was a surprise just how well we all sort of meshed". "That was disappointing. When you're playing a team that's as good as Golden State, you're going to get embarrassed if that's the way you come out, and we did, so I think that's the deal, more than anything".

Obvious selections LeBron James, James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Kawhi Leonard were joined on the first team by Anthony Davis.

"You've got to be the aggressor". Going all in on the next game and putting themselves one game away from the NBA Finals.
