Warriors trounce Spurs without Leonard for 2-0 series lead

Warriors trounce Spurs without Leonard for 2-0 series lead

Incidentally, Pachulia injured his ankle in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals and could be held out of the next two games in San Antonio.

The play happened in front of the Spurs bench and Popovich was angry at the time and even more upset a day after San Antonio's 113-111 loss to the Warriors.

Golden State won 67 games this season, the only team to do better than San Antonio's 61, and the Warriors were the NBA's top-scoring club.

The answer to this question can not truly be given before the health status of Leonard is known. That's just the way we always feel.

Jose Berrios: Berrios moves to 3-0 on Wednesday vs. O's
Paul Goldschmidt had two hits, including a first-inning RBI triple, and Yasmany Tomas added a pair of hits for the Diamondbacks. The bad news is that there is a lot of room for the Orioles offense to be better and the team to still end up losing the game.

San Antonio has been outscored by 61 points since Leonard exited Game 1 of the series due to an ankle injury with just over eight minutes remaining in the third quarter.

But those were the Rockets. They are 10-0 in the playoffs this year and could match the best start in National Basketball Association playoff history with a victory in game three Saturday at San Antonio.

By dominating Game 2, the Warriors looked like the same team that had steamrolled their opponents in the first two rounds of the playoffs, and to a flawless 8-0 record coming into their matchup with San Antonio. Should the Spurs lose Saturday, NBA history indicates the Warriors will be headed to their third straight NBA Finals.

"It's the same play", Brown said. "So I literally start to go and I'm going to get in the far left lane to go through where we all go through, and a cop out of nowhere pulls in front of me and goes, 'Hey you, stop!". Don't want to hobble around or shoot off-balance shots. Gregg Popovich said the Spurs didn't believe they could win without Leonard in Game 2 and it showed in their level of play and body language. "We'll just lay it out there Game 3 on our home floor".

Trump visits Israel amid tight security
Now the president has said he wants to help make the ultimate deal, peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. He flies in from Saudi Arabia, a key USA ally, where he gave a speech to Arab and Muslim leaders at a summit.

Curry also collected seven rebounds and seven assists in the comfortable victory as the Western Conference No. 1 seeded side took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven game series.

"In Game 3, I expect to see a different team", said Popovich, with hopes of Leonard being available for the next two games in Texas Saturday and Monday.

"Jon was... I don't know if the only, but one of the very few who to came to play", Popovich told reporters, and added " Jon was in a category by himself. "I've been at practice, just watching and things".

Looking at the betting trends, the Warriors are 9-0 ATS in their last nine road games, 4-1 ATS in their last five Conference Finals games but just 0-4 ATS in their last four games playing on three or more days' rest.

Palestinian killed by W Bank Jewish settlers
Around 1,800 Palestinian prisoners Friday entered a critical phase after being on hunger strike for 33 consecutive days. The Israeli settler who killed a young Palestinian man in a clash on the West Bank had been freed by police.

And a cop, out of nowhere, pulls in front of me and says 'hey you, stop!' "I think (his preparation) was as well as it can go".
