Warriors coach Mike Brown nearly arrested before game

The San Antonio Spurs were dismantled by the Golden State Warriors, 136-100 in game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

"You're in a desperate position", Gasol said. Since 2009, only four of 55 teams have dug themselves out of that hole, including Oklahoma City (2012 Western Conference Finals), Memphis (2013 first round), Portland (2016 first round) and Cleveland (2016 NBA Finals).

Warriors forward Andre Iguodala has been ruled out of Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the San Antonio Spurs with left knee soreness.

San Antonio increased its margin by 25 points in the second quarter before the Warriors went on an 11-2 run capped off by a 3-point shot by Curry to make the score 46-32. "(Curry) gets everybody else open once he gets it going like that", said Kevin Durant, who added 16 points to the Warriors' cause. "They came out with a sense of urgency from the beginning".

Also on the agenda: the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders' meeting and dinner, with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. Trump's upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia will be his first overseas trip since taking office on January 20.

Unfortunately, we probably won't get a chance to see him try.

So my buddy's like, oh, you got to thank the Spurs for that. Unfortunately, you will be needing an authentication with your cable provider should you want to watch San Antonio Spurs vs. He determined the best plan was to pass out of those double teams and get his teammates involved.

Coach Gregg Popovich was furious with what he described the unsportsmanlike play but Mills refused to talk about the play, deferring to his coach, but joked: "I can't jump really high anyway".

In the game itself, Stephen Curry scored 29 points, including six three-pointers as the Warriors' all-round offensive power crushed a Spurs line-up missing the injured Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker.

Houston Congressman Al Green called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the floor of Congress Wednesday morning. Ryan warned against a rush to judgement: "It is obvious that there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

"And that was the message to the team afterward, too, going into Game 3". I either take my shot or find an open guy. He goes, 'Mike, I didn't know that was you! "But, next game I won't do that". We asked and during a normal Warriors' game 22 security officers are normally assigned, but tonight, that number has been bumped to 66.

To hear Aldridge tell it, he can't wait for Game 3.

The Warriors announced the lineup just more than an hour before tipoff Tuesday night. Golden State was going to come in and send a strong message to the Spurs in Game 2.

NBA MVP candidate Leonard was forced from the court in the third quarter of San Antonio's 113-111 game-one loss to the Warriors on Sunday and the Spurs are uncertain whether his ankle will be healed enough to play game three. Well we've had a pretty damn good season, we've played fairly well in the playoffs, I think we're getting better and we're up 23 points in the third quarter against Golden State and Kawhi goes down, like that.
