Spurs set up Warriors meeting as Harden and Rockets crumble

San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, right, grabs a loose ball from Houston Rockets center Clint Capela during the first half in Game 6 of an NBA basketball second-round playoff series, Thursday, May 11, 2017, in Houston. In Game 6 of their Western Conference Semifinal matchup with the San Antonio Spurs, the Rockets were on the ropes down 3-2 in the series, but laid a massive bearded egg. He rested in the mid-March win over Golden State that saw both team's best players sit out. "So I was willing to take some contested shots tonight and I got into my rhythm early and after that I was good to go". He did not make a 2-point attempt. "We'll figure it out".

But that had been anticipated even before Leonard - who had suffered a sprained left ankle in Game 5 Tuesday, sitting out the series clincher two days later - participated fully in practice at the team's facility Saturday.

"Patty controlled everything really well. everyone contributed and it was a real team effort", said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. We want to see your fan photos and videos!

They swept the Portland Trail Blazers 4-0 in the first round and did the same to the Utah Jazz, featuring Australians Joe Ingles and Dante Exum, in the second round. "It's a building and an environment, a lot of people out there that I'm very familiar with and keep in touch with numerous guys on their team still". "You have to prepare for this team a different way". Since suffering a 107-85 loss at San Antonio on March 11 while resting four starters, Golden State is 23-1.

The Spurs opened the third quarter with an 8-1 run, with six points from Aldridge, to extend their already big lead to 69-43 with about 9 1/2 minutes left.

Gregg Popovich on Zaza Pachulia: 'Have you ever heard of manslaughter?'
Have you ever heard of manslaughter? You still go to jail, I think, when you're texting and you end up killing someone. He also added that Pachulia's incident wasn't the only questionable play, and it involved the back-to-back MVP.


The Spurs beat Golden State twice in three games this season, including an opening night win back in October that marked Leonard's only appearance at Oracle Arena this season.

Neither injury seemed to have a major impact on the team, except for the fact that it gave LaMarcus Aldridge a chance to emerge as a dominant scorer for the Spurs.

"For whatever reason, this game we didn't have the juice and the stuff", said D'Antoni, who fell to 0-5 in postseason series against Popovich and San Antonio. "He was an absolute beast (Thursday), and that's who he is". "Personally, I think Washington matches up better with Cleveland than Boston does". Golden State has simply not needed to utilize this lineup that much through the first two rounds, but if the Spurs do come up with schemes and adjustments to slow down the Warriors' offense, this five-man lineup is the "break in case of emergency" move that interim coach Mike Brown can use.

Golden State had a record-setting 73 wins in their 15-16 season, as they clinched the West, and won 67 games in their 16-17 campaign.

But they're ready for the challenge. It's pretty good. It could have been better, but we're in the right direction. "We'll go out and try to protect our home court".
