Gregg Popovich knocks Spurs for 'lack of edge, intensity' in Game 2

Stephen Curry delivered 29 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in just three quarters as the Warriors crushed the San Antonio Spurs, 136-100 to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals. "But, next game I won't do that". "That's what I was taught since day one". Golden State: Portland (+1) 67-54 first half Game 3 Memphis vs. San Antonio: Memphis (+1) 50-46 first half Game 3 Oklahoma City vs. Houston: Oklahoma City (-2.5) 65-58 first half Game 3 Washington vs. Boston: Washington (-4.5) 63-40 first half Game 3 Toronto vs. Cleveland: Toronto (-1) 52-49 first half Game 3 Utah vs. "He's really added a dimension to our game this year to be able to play through him when he's out on the floor". He would not return.

Golden State is just the fifth National Basketball Association team to win its first 10 playoff games in a given postseason.

"The two-step, lead-with-your-foot closeout is not appropriate", Popovich said. It's unsafe. It's unsportsmanlike. Hopefully, some of his players will hear his comments and use it as ammunition to come out strong in Game 3 in front of the home crowd. They need to take a cue from Simmons and play at full bore, no matter who is missing from the lineup. That team was a history-making bunch of its own, winning 73 games in the regular season.

West, who was a member of the Spurs last season, was surprised to be brought into the discussion.

Popovich meanwhile was critical of Aldridge for failing to assume the offensive responsibilities in the absence of Leonard. "He was intense and he played to win". That's as far as it's going to go. That's who he is.

Aldridge admitted to having a hands-off off style of play during Game 2, but realized afterward that he needs to be his normal aggressive self if the team is to have any shot of coming back during this series.

"Bigs just try to contest shots and sometimes that stuff may happen", Durant said. And you want to know if our chances our less, and you want to know how we feel? "Steph avoided landing on LaMarcus" foot, and that's why they didn't call a foul. LaMarcus is not a dirty player. It's some guys on there as scorers averaging 20 points, and don't have as near an amount of wins as we have.

"You've got to be the aggressor". They've got the big guys out on the court and passing and everybody's running splits and back door and slipping, and he's a good passer.

"Nah, I don't have a response". Michael C. Wright of ESPN wrote about the Spurs troubles in Game 2, and quoted Aldridge on his poor performance. Moments later, he departed, saying, "Everybody's stumped I didn't have nothing to say about Zaza". Pachulia's also been the recipient of countless mean tweets.

Durant said Leonard's re-aggravated injury by Pachulia was not by force. "There was a right defense from my side, to challenge the shot".

"I have no idea".

With Leonard's status for the remainder of the series in limbo, Pachulia was extremely apologetic for what occurred. It was sort of one of those things on my bucket list. I could be feeling way better. I have a lot of respect for Kawhi.

"Personally, I expected us to take a little bit longer". We thought only LeBron could accomplish that sort of feat, and maybe that's true, but Kawhi may have been on the brink of his moment.
