Warriors trounce Spurs without Leonard for 2-0 series lead

The Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson shoots and makes a basket against the San Antonio Spurs during the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals at Oracle Arena in Oakland on Tuesday

Kevin Durant is not a medical expert and doesn't have insight into the San Antonio Spurs medical team's process when it comes to determining if injured players are sufficiently ready, but the Golden State Warriors' superstar is banking on a Kawhi Leonard return.

Popovich didn't provide any more details Friday, but he added that Leonard's long-term health is "always a factor" in making a final decision. He can't do it.

"Somebody's got to teach him if the California Highway Patrol tells you to move, you move over, " Popovich said.

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

That's just part of the game, it's been happening forever since I've been in the League. "I was trying to make the extra pass, but I have to score, too".

Golden State quickly established its pass-happy, up-tempo style to take the Spurs out from the opening tip. "Luckily we had Kawhi who was going through the roof". The NBA ruled Pachulia won't face any discipline and that the play will stand as called. Leonard's presence would help that quest.

The Warriors outscored the Spurs - which led by as many as 25 points on Sunday's contest - 58-33 after Leonard left the Game 1, going on an 18-0 run and holding on for a 113-111 win and 1-0 lead. Cleveland won a six-game series with Toronto but fell behind Golden State 3-1 in the NBA Finals before LeBron James and Kyrie Irving rallied the Cavaliers to the title. Leonard then landed on Pachulia's foot, further tweaking his already-sprained left ankle. "Obviously, thinking a little bit". If I scoot a little closer, they'll get a little scared, because I know I'd get scared.

"But offensively, I think it's a combination of them playing good defense and also us not finding our chemistry, not finding our rhythm, and not knowing where to be with two of our main playmakers not there".

The Warriors just want to keep the momentum that has them at 10-0 this postseason.

"It was definitely something different than I've seen here, but you've got to play through it", Aldridge said of the increased attention from the Warriors. "Don't want to hobble around or shoot off balance shots".

"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".
