Spurs Leonard likely out for Game 2

16 May 2017

Popovich told the San Antonio Express-News (via Reddit) that the National Basketball Association was "trying to change the way my best defender plays".

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich told reporters on Monday that forward Kawhi Leonard will likely miss Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors after reinjuring his ankle in Game 1. "You've got to time that perfectly if you want to hurt somebody". "I wouldn't call it smooth sailing at all". We wish that he gets healthy. They came out and challenged us heavy, put a nice little run together. "It was kind of indicative of what kind of mistakes we might have made". I think it's brought us's a test of character. The Warriors were 11 of 30 from beyond the arc and outscored the Spurs 33-21 on 3-pointers. Curry produced one of the finest performances of his playoff career as he delivered a thermonuclear shooting streak that turned the tide of the game.

"So, Game 2?" Green queried at one point, attempting to change the subject. When Leonard went to the locker room with 7:53 left in the third quarter the Spurs led by 23 points. Shortly after, Pachulia slid toward Leonard as he took a shot and the Spurs star fell into the Spurs bench, grabbing his ankle.

The San Antonio Spurs might have lost Game 1, but this series is far from over.

At the time of the injury, Leonard had 26 points and eight rebounds and the team was ahead by 23.

"It's a tough break". And if he would have played and they had ended up winning, I'd go get dinner, have a glass of wine, wake up the next day, go to practice and move on. "So we couldn't react to his absence".

Durant has repeatedly spoken of elevating his game when it matters most - and he did it at the very moment the Warriors needed a huge lift on their home floor. Then, (the Pachulia-Leonard) play happened.

"Just very painful because I tweaked it before", Leonard said of the injury. He called out Pachulia's history and thought there was intent behind the controversial play. On Sunday, dressed in jeans and Warriors sweatshirt, Kerr watched the first half from the bowels of the Oracle Arena.

Popovich said Bowen is being singled out, citing incidents where New Jersey's Richard Jefferson and Dallas' Josh Howard sprained ankles after landing on Miami's Shaquille O'Neal and Golden State's Mickael Pietrus. "I'm an athlete, too, so I know how it feels", Pachulia said. But it's been very hard for him. "And we all believe no matter who is on the court, we can go and get this done". "We just knew what we had in front of us, the opportunity".

The source said the Duncan situation started Popovich's philosophy of the team always striving to "do what's best for the player" when dealing with injuries, even if it means faltering in the playoffs. Pau Gasol picked up two quick fouls and his third 5:18 before halftime.

San Antonio had six steals among the Warriors' initial nine turnovers and Golden State wasn't getting the kind of easy shots it was used to going nearly untested the first two rounds.
