Warriors trounce Spurs, take 2-0 series lead

Leonard re-injured his left ankle in Sunday's 113-111 Game 1 loss after coming down on Zaza Pachulia's foot.

Coach Popovich ruled Leonard out Monday before the MRI results were announced.

"Two-step, lead-with-your-foot close-out is not appropriate", Popovich said. Everybody says it, but when you have a guy like Pat who doesn't really know when his minutes are going to come, he always stays ready. Golden State immediately responded with an 18-0 run to get back into the game. This injury is actually the same that kept Leonard out of Game 6 of San Antonio's elimination game against the Rockets. Who gives a damn about what his intent was.

Pat Cummins was DD's best bowler; the Australian, brought on as first change, finished with impressive figures of 2/21. Chris Gayle , who struggled to put bat to the ball throughout the tournament, also batted well and scored 48 runs.

"All I care about is the next game, and we'll see how they come out". That ranks fifth on the team in playing time, behind the Warriors' four All-Stars. "You know, having your horses is important at this point in the deal..."

"The only way I can process this is that I think it's not O's and X's or rebounds or turnovers or anything like that", he said. All three former National Basketball Association players took media questions earlier this week in separate conference calls, that included the MSR. The Spurs were left with one simple path: Try to steal this one because Game 2 will be conceded so Kawhi can rest until Saturday's Game 3 in San Antonio.

Pachulia said he was just trying to contest the shot and seemed surprised at first that a foul was even called, though many observers on social media thought the play looked suspect.

A fan favorite during his time in Manchester , the City players and fans will want Zabaleta's final home match to be a win. Top scorer Sergio Aguero could return to the starting line-up, while defender John Stones (groin) is also in contention.

The Spurs players haven't responded to Zaza Pachulia's actions with the same ferocity as Coach Pop, but that feeling has no doubt resonated in the locker room.

Jonathon Simmons, starting in place of Leonard, had a team-high 22 points for the Spurs, who fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series for the first time since being swept by the Phoenix Suns in the Western semifinals in 2010. The Spurs defeated the Houston Rockets in game six without Leonard in order to advance to the Western Conference Finals. F Andre Iguodala (L knee soreness) was listed as questionable and downgraded to out prior to tipoff. We saw how the San Antonio's fate turned upside down in the third quarter, and a full matchup of that kind of unimaginative effort will quickly turn the second game into a blow-out.
