  • The Spurs La Marcus Aldridge drives to the basket against Zaza Pachulia of the Golden State Warriors during Game One

The loss dropped the visitors to 0-2 in this Western Conference finals series and led coach Gregg Popovich to question his squad's fortitude.

Golden State Warriors acting coach Mike Brown had the last laugh on Tuesday after a pre-game confrontation with traffic police who failed to recognize him as they escorted the San Antonio Spurs to Game 2.

Meanwhile, everyone on the Warriors team was hitting their shots and the game wasn't a contest early as the Warriors led by 30 in the second quarter. McCaw, who had played fewer than 10 combined minutes since the end of the first round, became the first Warriors rookie with at least 18 points off the bench in a playoff game since Robert Parish in 1977, and the first rookie in the National Basketball Association with 18-or-more points off the bench in a playoff game since James Harden in 2010.

Now, Golden State will head to San Antonio for two games.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Steve Kerr provided a strong message, just not from his usual spot on the bench: Play with urgency from the opening tip this time.

Without Leonard, "San Antonio" helplessly surrendered the second game - "the Golden state" by the end of the first quarter amassed a 17-point lead, turning the remaining 36 minutes of the game a mere formality. Draymond Green did a bit of everything in contributing 13 points, nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks. "(Curry) gets everybody else open once he gets it going like that", said Kevin Durant, who added 16 points to the Warriors' cause. We know they're a little undermanned but they still play extremely hard, so we knew we couldn't come out here and relax and think they were just going to give us the game.

The only player he exempted from this analysis was Jonathan Simmons, who replaced Leonard in the starting lineup and finished with 22 points in 25 minutes.

"It looked pretty collective to me". If I scoot a little closer, they'll get a little scared, because I know I'd get scared. "The truth always quote-un-quote sets you free".

"You're not going to stop a guy like Patty, especially in offence with the way he moves and all that, but you just want him to try to take as tough shots as you can", Brown said. 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. The heated Popovich called out the Warriors' Pachulia for his play on Leonard in the process. Game three is in San Antonio on Saturday. Key reserve and 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala's status was unclear after he missed Game 2 with soreness in his left knee.

A group of San Antonio Spurs fans filed a lawsuit naming Golden State center Zaza Pachulia and the Warriors as defendants.

The Spurs never led in Game 2. That's a combination that won't lose the Warriors many games. "We're exiting the off-ramp and I tell my son - because my son loves Coach Pop, known Coach Pop for a long time - I said Cam, the Spurs are behind us", Brown relayed. Cleveland also has swept its first two playoff opponents this year as it enters the Eastern Conference finals with Boston, marking the first time a team has stated out 8-0 in two straight postseasons.

Popovich had no guess about Leonard's status for Game 3, saying it would likely be decided as late as Friday or Saturday.

"I have no idea". "I think I kind of threw off the offensive rhythm not taking my shots and I kind of got lost in the flow of just standing around".

"Somebody's got to teach him if the California Highway Patrol tells you to move, you move over", Popovich cracked. But the thing that worries me is that he did it again, the exact same thing. "Because if we don't we could end up losing the game". I think we've maybe felt it too much, Kawhi being gone, in the sense that I don't think.as I watched, I don't think they believed.

Kerr attended his second game this series but again watched behind the scenes as he recovers from a May 5 procedure to fix a spinal-fluid leak.
