"It's a team game, so not that much", Aldridge said. "Give all of our guys credit". You have to believe.
It all started May 14 when the Golden State Warriors battled the San Antonio Spurs.
"We felt sorry for ourselves", Popovich said.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich wasn't sure if Leonard will be available for the game, saying that it wouldn't be until Friday or even Saturday until the forward's status is determined.
Warriors acting coach Mike Brown, a former assistant to Popovich, said that he believes his old mentor was just protecting his players and pointed to a play that came shortly after where San Antonio's LaMarcus Aldridge's foot got underneath Stephen Curry on a jumper but there was no call because Curry didn't land on it. "I see the vehicle trying to inch forward, I'm like, 'He's about to get arrested.' I said, 'Pop, this is my own building.' He goes, 'I know, when I saw it was you, I died laughing'".
Warriors: Coach Steve Kerr attended his second game this series but again watched behind the scenes as he recovers from a May 5 procedure at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak.
"I'd probably list him as questionable", Popovich said. After losing Game 1, Manu Ginobili told reporters he would rather lose by 20 points than lose the close game they played on Sunday.
Curry also contributed seven assists and seven rebounds to put the Warriors just two wins away from reaching a third consecutive NBA Finals in the best-of-seven series. They've been outscored by 61 points since Leonard went down in the third quarter of Game 1.Читайте также: The blame game, ransomware edition: Who's at fault?
THORPE: You want to make that player think of you as you're shooting the ball, not focus on his form, without any risk for a fouling.
Kevin Durant added 16 points and Draymond Green provided another strong all-around performance with 13 points, nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks. 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.
"Ask David West, his current teammate, how things went when Zaza was playing for Dallas and he and David got into it". With the money he is being paid to be a superstar on this team, there is no excuse to put up that type of performance against the best team in the National Basketball Association during the regular season.
Curry meanwhile had nothing but praise for Warriors youngster McCaw, who filled in for the injured Andre Iguodala with 18 points.
"We can't necessarily play any worse than we did tonight", point guard Patty Mills said of the Spurs, who made only 37 per cent of their shots.
"It takes a lot out of you". Signed to be Leonard's second-fiddle, Aldridge will need to produce more No. 1 option moments should he wish to propel a Leonard-less Spurs team to a victory in Game 3.
The way the Warriors started the second half, there was no chance the Spurs could hold on to the lead after Leonard went down. "Not just come out with it, but keep it for 48 minutes".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
