Warriors throttle Spurs to take 2-0 series lead

Galena Nuncio | 19 May, 2017, 17:34

Prior to Game 2 of the Warriors' Western Conference finals showdown with the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night, Brown had an incident with police at Golden State's Oracle Arena in Oakland.

While Kawhi Leonard ordered dinner from the team hotel, the rest of the San Antonio Spurs choked down a heaping helping of disheartening defeat by way of a 136-100 annihilation at the hands of the Golden State Warriors.

Curry also collected seven rebounds and seven assists in the comfortable victory as the Western Conference No. 1 seeded side took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven game series.

Curry led the way for the Warriors, scoring 29 points in 30 minutes of play on 13 shots for a plus-24. "(Curry) gets everybody else open once he gets it going like that", said Kevin Durant, who added 16 points to the Warriors' cause.

Jonathon Simmons, starting in place of Leonard, had a team-high 22 points for the Spurs, who fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series for the first time since being swept by the Phoenix Suns in the Western semifinals in 2010.

The proposed ban would cause serious disruptions on one of the world's most frequented air routes. Mr de Juniac told Bloomberg: "Travelling with your laptop is part of everyday life".

That the Spurs lost by 36 and appeared overmatched in every phase of the game in doing so was the shocker here, and Popovich refused to specifically point his finger at Aldridge, who finished with just eight points and four boards in almost 27 uninspiring minutes.

The Warriors took control early, moving to a 33-16 lead after the first quarter. They led 81-59 as they approached the midway mark of the third quarter. They will meet the Spurs again on Saturday, May 20, in San Antonio. Leonard landed on Pachulia's extended foot, tweaking his sprained ankle and forcing him to leave the game. Still, he's shot just 3-of-14 over two games and provided the team with little of his trademark spark on either end.

Golden State is just the fifth National Basketball Association team to win its first 10 playoff games in a given postseason.

"It showed in the lack of edge, intensity ..." They finished with 39 assists as a team, which is the most assists by any team in a game this postseason. But when you're playing a team that's as good as Golden State, you're going to get embarrassed if that's the way you come out, and we did. He turned down shots in the first quarter.

"This is playoff time, and if you're not excited and don't get that adrenaline rush and get locked into the moment, you're going to miss out", Curry said of his postseason play.

Trump administration sanctions Venezuela Supreme Court
Among those hit with sanctions was Maikel Moreno, a Maduro ally who became president of the 32-judge court in February . President Nicolas Maduro in turn blames sabotage by the "bourgeois" opposition, which he says is backed by Washington.

"I think we may have felt it too much - Kawhi being gone", Popovich said. Aldridge was passive throughout the game, struggling to read the Warriors defense and rarely looking to assert himself in the post. In San Antonio, expect the Spurs to come out with fire in an attempt to swing the momentum of the series.

The Warriors should get another nice boost from coach Steve Kerr, who is well enough that he plans to travel with the team to San Antonio on Thursday. This game was sadly over before it even started, though. We didn't come to play.

"LaMarcus has to score for us", Popovich said. Think Game 1 was tough?

Popovich wasn't about to guess whether Leonard would return in time for Saturday's game.

You still go to jail, I think, when you're texting and you end up killing somebody.

Oi millennials, stop buying avocado toast and you can afford a house
It is undeniably tough to get on the property ladder these days, and there are many factors that contribute to this. If I bought it once every single day of the year, which no one does , it would cost me about $2,920.

Coaches in these situations often deflect questions, or reply with stock answers about keeping such discussions in the locker room. "So one would logically think maybe it will take longer, but I'm hoping that's not true and we'll have him for Game 3".
