Leonard to miss game two


Pachulia can be awkward and a bit challenging for everybody on the floor, including his own teammates; this is a guy who was careened to the floor earlier this season directly into Kevin Durant's knee, nearly ending Durant's season. Brown also referenced another incident that, for his part, exonerates Pachulia from any intent to injure. "It's the same play", Brown said.

Cam Fowler figures that Johansen was emotional after the Game 2 loss and doesn't see it lingering. Read More »
