Kawhi Leonard Officially Out for Game 1

Kawhi Leonard Officially Out for Game 1

The San Antonio Spurs will be without Kawhi Leonard for game one of their first-round Western Conference playoff series against reigning National Basketball Association champions the Golden State Warriors.

"We are going in to the playoffs with the idea that we are going to accept every challenge". "We won't always make shots at that rate but we need to play good defense like that as well". "Hopefully, we do that and we raise our game to the next level".

JaVale McGee scored 15 points and provided an offensive and defensive punch for the Warriors.

Young chipped in three points in eight minutes as the Warriors cruised to victory.

When the Spurs looked in legitimate danger of falling out of the playoff pictures for the first time in about 64 years, Aldridge took on greater responsibility and averaged 26.1 points and 9.0 rebounds for the month of March.

"The first quarter we looked like deer in the headlights", Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. San Antonio is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games versus Golden State. And that was without the do-everything Curry.

Golden State has an excellent 58-24 SU record, but they have trouble covering the spread (33-46-3 ATS). The Warriors have plans for nothing short of a repeat title.

Over the last four decades, a top-seeded team has claimed 28 championships. "We got the job done", said Raptors star Kyle Lowry. ". We're primed for this". The Rockets will be without a valuable rotation player, Luc Mbah a Moute, who sustained a shoulder injury this week in a meaningless game. The team has obviously grown accustomed to playing without Leonard in the lineup, but the impact of his absence becomes even more significant on the playoff stage.

The Warriors were determined to pick up their defence, and they did just that. "He's got some of the best hands I've ever seen and our ability to switch I think disrupted them".

Iguodala's starting role Saturday coincided with the demotion of Cook.

At least 11 inches of snow had fallen in Valentine, and areas near Chadron and Sidney received almost 10 inches. The mountains have seen between 2-6 inches of snow with up to five inches more possible through the evening.


McGee last started on April 5th.

It turns out Kerr might just have a good handle on how to coach his team. "That's the reason this is a championship team". Iggy spread his limbs all over the floor, guarding bigs and smalls, switching on the screen and generally being a pest to the other team, as he generally is this time of year.

From the opening tip Saturday Golden State played with energy on defense, moved the ball on offense, and exploited their considerable athleticism advantage over San Antonio. They are just one point ahead of KFC Orange Three Pinelands and Pan American International Insurance Corporation Warrens Sports Club who are both on 13 each.

"You can't win in this league in the playoffs unless you defend, and they defended tonight". "The examination indicated that Stephen has made steady functional progress since the injury and, as a result, he will intensify his on-court rehabilitation in the coming days, which will include more running and lateral movement".
