Warriors become just the 5th team to start National Basketball Association playoffs 10-0

The game came and went nearly too quickly for the human eye, and the rest of the night was just a matter of waiting for the Inevitable Express to pull into the station.

Simmons finished with a team-high 22 points and was aggressive at both ends of the court from the get-go.

"It looked pretty collective to me". "He was one of the very few who came to play". "I'm disappointed. The only way I can process this is I think it's not about the O's and X's or rebounds or turnovers or anything like that". That's just the way we always feel. So, call it like it is. "We told our guys the biggest asset that the Spurs have is they play hard for as close to 48 minutes as anybody". Leonard landed on Pachulia's foot and rolled his left ankle again. However, the National Basketball Association did not punish Pachulia for his play.

What the Spurs can't rely on is the return of Leonard in Game 3 at home in San Antonio as a magic elixir to cure what ails them.

Mills said the emotion the Spurs felt from losing Leonard in what Popovich described as a unsafe and unsportsmanlike play by Warriors' centre Zaza Pachulia should have fired up his team, not subdued them. An X-ray on Pachulia's bruised right heel was clear but he is scheduled for an MRI on Wednesday.

Golden State quickly established its pass-happy, up-tempo style to take the Spurs out from the opening tip.

In his sixth season, Leonard posted averages of 25.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game while leading the Spurs to 61 wins and the NBA's second-best record.

"If you need extra motivation in the Western Conference finals", Green said, "you've got another problem on your hands". He had 19 points and made four 3-point shots. The Warriors had 39 assists - the most by any team this postseason - including 30 on their initial 38 baskets.

With a 28-point advantage at the half and the Spurs reeling without their leader on the floor, Golden State got to empty the bench and really let their younger players get some important minutes.

Are the Spurs immensely over-matched in this series precisely because they've been without Leonard in this key stretch and they're without Tony Parker for the rest of the playoffs?

Leonard's status for Saturday's Game 3 of the series remains unknown.

"I have no idea". Popovich said before Tuesday's game that he'd probably list Leonard as questionable.

"I'm not going to psychoanalyze him", Popovich said. 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. You still go to jail, I think, when you're texting and you end up killing somebody but you might not have meant to do that.

"I thoroughly thought that we had Game 1 and we had great momentum, but unfortunately Kawhi goes down in that game and the tide turned, but we still had our chances", Lee said. Michael C. Wright of ESPN wrote about the Spurs troubles in Game 2, and quoted Aldridge on his poor performance.
