Proficient on both offense and defense, Golden State only lacks empathy

Proficient on both offense and defense, Golden State only lacks empathy

Juan Vazquez is suing the Warriors and center Zaza Pachulia, who's late closeout re-injured Leonard's left ankle, according to Nick Moyle of the San Antonio News-Express. Leonard will be on the sidelines Tuesday, while the Warriors try to stay undefeated in the postseason and take a 2-0 lead in the series when they host Game 2. Leonard missed Tuesday's Game 2 loss and remains questionable for Saturday's Game 3 at San Antonio.

The All-NBA First-Team selection also acknowledged Friday that he still isn't certain whether he'll be able to go in Game 3: "I'm not sure, I mean, it's still not read". "It's not that we are satisfied with that or we feel that we are finding excuses, those are the reasons I find, and I am not proud of it, but that's over". I could be feeling way better.

"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". "Don't want to hobble around or shoot off-balance shots".

The Spurs provided no indication either way Thursday regarding Leonard's potential return, while his teammates played coy when asked about the situation.

Golden State is just the fifth National Basketball Association team to win its first 10 playoff games in a given postseason.

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 unsafe and unsportsmanlike play. "It was definitely something different that I've seen", Aldridge said.

The Spurs led Golden State 76-55 in their series opener when Leonard re-injured his ankle shooting a jumper from the corner with 7:55 left in the third quarter. "You've got to score". "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".

This stance would surely meet with the ever-competitive Leonard's approval, but it's not a lock the Spurs throw their franchise player out there just because it's a big spot. After Danny Green's triple, Golden State scored 11 straight points to take their largest lead of the game at 44-19 with 9:22 left in the first half.

Leonard maintained it was strictly about his physical readiness for Game 3 and he did not have to overcome a mental hurdle about possibly re-injuring the ankle. I don't agree with the calls that I'm a dirty player. Just asked him how life was, how things were going.
