Spurs Fan Suing Zaza Pachulia, Warriors Over Injury To Kawhi Leonard

Golden State was going to come in and send a strong message to the Spurs in Game 2. Michael C. Wright of ESPN wrote about the Spurs troubles in Game 2, and quoted Aldridge on his poor performance. "So I just stopped".

Popovich suggested his team had been unable to mentally cope with the loss of Leonard for Game 2. Think Game 1 was tough?

San Antonio's depleted offense was led by Jonathon Simmons with 22 points.

Aldridge, however, was quick to say that he's not shouldering the burden of Game 3.

The only other positivefor the Spurs was watching Game 1 villain Zaza Pachulia exit with a bruised right heel after just seven minutes.

Popovich insisted the series is over if his team do not get an attitude adjustment.

"Zaza's got a thick skull, so when he gets out there, I know he'll be able to play", Curry said.

"The only way I can process this is I think it's not about the O's and X's or rebounds or turnovers or anything like that". And you have to believe. It showed in the lack of edge, intensity ...

The visitors shot 37-percent, well below the Warriors' 56.2 percent, while making just 8 of their 23 shots from 3-pointers compared to Golden State's 18-for-37 from long distance.

But the second half was the start of the end for the Spurs. Game 1 saw the team come back from a 25-points deficit.

Stephen Curry led the way, scoring 29 points on thirteen shots in only 30 minutes. He also found time for seven rebounds, a game-high seven assists and three steals in 31 minutes.

"It's fun to watch".

Popovich said the Spurs were "feeling sorry for themselves" after the controversial loss of Leonard, injured in Sunday's game one when he landed on the foot of Warriors' centre Zaza Pachulia in what the coach deemed a risky and unsportsmanlike play.

With 38.9 seconds left, the Warriors were up 111-106, but Manu Ginobili got a dunk, and Patty Mills stole the ball from Thompson and made two free throws after Thompson fouled him. Both Golden State and San Antonio finished the regular season with more wins than either Cleveland or Boston, and therefore will have home court advantage in the series.

Only eight other National Basketball Association teams have ever opened a postseason 10-0. "I think he's got a major responsibility in Game 3 to come out and get something done". "So that was huge", Curry said.

Here is what is scary about the Warriors - they have so many players capable of beating you on any given night.

Vasquez is arguing that, by injuring Leonard, Pachulia caused him financial harm as a Spurs season-ticket holder, one who "expects that members of the team he supports will not be targeted for injury", as quoted in the lawsuit filing, which you should read in its absurd entirety. The Warriors are doing a great job forcing missed shots, limiting the Spurs to 41.8 percent shooting from the field and 33.3 percent from three-point range, but they can do a better job of cleaning up those misses and preventing San Antonio from getting multiple scoring opportunities within a single trip down the floor.
