Warriors roll to easy win over Spurs

Warriors roll to easy win over Spurs

"It could have gone either way. We're exiting the off-ramp and I tell my son - because my son loves Coach Pop, known Coach Pop for a long time - I said Cam, the Spurs are behind us", Brown relayed. "That's just being a lot more alert defensively to start and just making them work".

Golden state: Curry (29 + 7 rebounds + 7 assists), McCaw (18), Durant (16). I don't know how he does it, but he does it every game. "That's pretty lame. So, call it like it is, and we didn't come to play". "Unlike Game 1 we did that tonight". They came out and played really well. In that regard, the rust was quite prevalent and the Spurs took an advantage of it, too. The Spurs forward missed his first two jump shots and the night didn't get any better from that point on.

By now you know the San Antonio Spurs are competing against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.

In the second quarter, the Spurs finally began to find their offensive touch from the floor.

Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge combined for 35 points in the first half.

Shaun Livingston scored in double figures for the first time this postseason with 10 points for Golden State.

The launch came as troops from the U.S., Japan and two European nations gather near Guam for drills that are partly a message to North Korea .

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.

"It's going to be a physical series", Brown said.

"I'm like, 'This is great, I didn't have to stop for any of these red lights, '" Brown said. The Spurs played 13 players.

That's when it's popcorn time for the Warriors and their fans - and sheer dread for the opposition. Midway in the first quarter, they went down low to Pau Gasol. The highlight was when poor Dewayne Dedmon and his ankles felt the full brunt of Curry's powers in the third quarter. Now they have to deal with an engaged Warriors team that isn't likely to sleepwalk through a half, as they did in Game 1. The Spurs came back to take the lead on a basket by Aldridge to make the score 104-103. While it's true that the Spurs had a 78-55 lead when he limped off the court in the opener and have been outscored 164-108 since then, he can't pull the wagon now to four wins out of five games by himself. If Leonard is unable to go next game, don't be surprised to see the Warriors' versatile rookie soak up at least some of Iguodala's Game 3 minutes.

Leonard injured his ankle in the first-game loss after he landed on Zaza Pachulia's foot as he went up for a three-point shot.

The two-time most valuable player came away with a game-high 29 points on 8-for-13 shooting from the field while remaining a flawless 7 of 7 from the free-throw line. Even so, our defense could even promote the tempo that we wanted to get to. The Warriors are just unbelievably good.
