Warriors Mike Brown's reveals crazy game 2 excuse

Tyronn Lue: Conference Finals still special for Cleveland Cavaliers

Steve Kerr Wrote 'F*** It' on His Sneakers as a Player

The blowout capped a miserable few days for San Antonio, who on Sunday had squandered a 25-point third quarter lead before Leonard suffered his ankle injury that left him sidelined on Tuesday.

Before the game, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich labeled SF Kawhi Leonard (sprained left ankle) "questionable" for Game 3 on Saturday, leaving the door open for a possible return. Popovich defended it when his guy was the accused back in 2006, and now Bowen himself has chimed in, claiming that what he saw Pachulia do in Game 1 seemed to be intentional.

"Two step lead with your foot close out is not appropriate", Popovich said.

Iguodala is a calming presence for Golden State, but they were able to win without him in Game 1. He goes, 'Mike, I didn't know that was you.

Finally, Golden State heads to San Antonio up two games to none. The Warriors won the series in six games before losing to San Antonio in the conference semifinals. Who gives a damn about what his intent was. You ever heard of manslaughter? "So I didn't see what happened there". That ranks fifth on the team in playing time, behind the Warriors' four All-Stars. "We'll see what the MRI says, but obviously he won't play tomorrow", Popovich said. All three former National Basketball Association players took media questions earlier this week in separate conference calls, that included the MSR. Even with Leonard, there's no guarantee San Antonio makes this series much more interesting as the Warriors have been dominating this year's playoffs - and generally been on a tear since mid-March. But I don't know. The more compelling truth is that the Warriors have pressed their post-Leonard advantage, outscoring the Spurs, 194-133, putting math to not only the matter of belief but the different in present talent levels as well.

"Zaza's not a dirty player".

As expected, the Spurs will be without their superstar in Game 2.

Following the Game 6 blowout victory over Houston, where Leonard did not play, there was hope that the Spurs could close out the game without Leonard - especially with a 23-point cushion when Leonard exited Game 1. Both Kerr and Brown emphasized a better start on both ends in Game 2 to control the tempo from the opening tip.

Curry meanwhile had nothing but praise for Warriors youngster McCaw, who filled in for the injured Andre Iguodala with 18 points.
