No one will feel bad for us.
Pachulia took exception with Popovich's assessment of his play. My approach to this game for the 14 years I've been in this league is to play hard and give 100 percent of whatever I have.
And now the Warriors shift to San Antonio with a team that is getting contributions from the bench, a defense with a gameplan that's fit to shut down a Spurs attack predicated on two players, and an offense now featuring two rolling MVPs and a warming up Klay Thompson.More news: 'I was a little bit surprised' over backlash against Comey's firing
"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!'" Brown said. So I must say "Thank you, Zaza and Pop!" from this Houston basketball fan whose soul was hollowed and crushed by James Harden's Game 6 performance last Thursday. "That's what I was taught since day one". Up until then, Leonard was the best player on the floor with 26 points and eight rebounds.
"They came out with a sense of urgency from the beginning and they played that way for 48 minutes", acting Warriors head coach Mike Brown told reporters.
Despite a 0-2 series hole, the Spurs training staff will have until Saturday to attempt to heal Leonard's sprained ankle. Leonard was injured when he was undercut by Zaza Pachulia with 7:55 left in the third quarter. "As a group they just let themselves down", Popovich said. But this is (garbage). But Popovich was concerned only with the result not the intent. You still go to jail, I think, when you're texting and you end up killing somebody, but may have not meant to do that. All I care is what I saw, all I care about is what happened. I think we maybe felt it too much, Kawhi being gone. The only Warrior who wouldn't get sucked in was Draymond Green, but even his silence on the issue raised additional questions when he was perceived not to have had his teammate's back.More news: US teen's death after caffeine binge sparks concern over energy drinks
The veteran played just 10 minutes, all in the first half, and finished with just two points and one assist. In nine playoff games, he is averaging only 15.0 points and shooting 38.8 percent. That ranks fifth on the team in playing time, behind the Warriors' four All-Stars.
Leonard scored 26 points on 7-of-13 shooting in almost 24 minutes to go with eight rebounds and three assists. However, it is still a question whether Leonard can make it back in time to help the team get a shot at the NBA Finals.More news: Senate $40.3 billion budget plan keeps tax estimates intact
