Warriors trounce Spurs without Leonard for 2-0 series lead

Posted May 18, 2017

The Warriors took full advantage of Kawhi Leonard's absence, bombing the uninspired Spurs with 18 3-pointers en route to a 136-100 trouncing that gave Golden State a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. He also found time for seven rebounds, a game-high seven assists and three steals in 31 minutes.

Leonard scored 26 points on 7-of-13 shooting in almost 24 minutes to go with eight rebounds and three assists. We asked and during a normal Warriors' game 22 security officers are normally assigned, but tonight, that number has been bumped to 66. We've played fairly well in the playoffs.

"He's got to score for us".

The 36-point Warriors' win is second to a 39-point victory for Philadelphia at St. Louis on April 6, 1948.

"I was watching them right before the game, at the National Anthem, and they were having fun, pretty light on their feet, the normal pregame get-hyped moment. They stayed composed. Not one point in the game did our guys hang their head or not believe".

"LaMarcus has to score for us", Popovich said. He made all 11 of his free throws. 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". We feel like we like our chances against anybody, no matter what is on the court.

Popovich suggested his team had been unable to mentally cope with the loss of Leonard for Game 2.

Pachulia left the game injured for a Warriors team already without key reserve forward Andre Iguodala, held out because of soreness in his left knee that limited him to 10 minutes in Game 1.

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. They turned it over nine times in the first half, but more importantly the Warriors scored 16 points off those turnovers.

Popovich addressed the media before Tuesday's game.

"I have no idea".

"Jon was in a category by himself", Popovich said. "I'm sitting here, I see this black Range Rover, I see all the cops around it, I see him inch forward, I'm like 'He's about to get arrested!"

"I think, as group, they just let themselves down", he said. I'm like, 'Hey, I'm being bullied by Oakland PD or San Francisco PD in my own building, my own parking lot.' So I start to go a little bit and another one pulls up: 'Hey, you, you heard him, stop!' "He goes, 'Mike, I didn't know that was you, '" Brown recalled. "I think bigs just try to contest shots and sometimes that stuff may happen, but it's not on goal at all". Golden State was going to come in and send a strong message to the Spurs in Game 2.
