Warriors To Face Spurs In Western Conference Finals

Warriors To Face Spurs In Western Conference Finals

Stephen Curry scored 40 points and hit a tying 3-pointer with 1:48 remaining, and the Golden State Warriors rallied from way down after Kawhi Leonard was lost to an ankle injury to beat the San Antonio Spurs 113-111 on Sunday in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. I'd be extremely surprised if they win two games. By not fighting through the injury he may have been able to increase the speed of his recovery.

It was the worst performance in a playoffs elimination game in the last 25 years by a player who averaged at least 25 points during a season, according to ESPN.

"I don't know if it's true or not, but it's nearly like mentally it just zapped us", he said. "It's going to be hard for Boston with just him and the fringe around him to get past that Cleveland team". These two teams haven't met in the National Basketball Association postseason in four years, and the series nearly guarantees excitement.

Leonard was injured in the third quarter of Game 5 on Tuesday, an overtime Spurs victory in which he sat out much of the fourth and all of the extra period.

After acknowledging for several years that they aspire to be Spurs 2.0, the Warriors will come face to face with the real thing in the next round of the playoffs. "Demanded the ball, got in good position. he was wonderful on the boards and of course he passes it really, really well and gets it moving for us". Many expect Cleveland and Golden State to duke it out again this year, but Golden State first has to contend with San Antonio.

Looking at the betting trends, the Spurs are 13-6-1 ATS in their last 20 games against a team above.600, 2-6 ATS in their last eight games playing on two days' rest and 6-2 ATS in their last eight Conference Finals games.

The Spurs will certainly need his stellar defensive skills to contend with a Warriors team that not only swept the Jazz, but also eliminated the Trail Blazers in four games in the first round.

The Spurs were up by 19 by halftime in a game that was over quickly, and didn't let up to reach the Western Conference finals for the first time since winning the title in 2014.

"We just didn't play well", Harden told reporters. But Gregg Popovich will try, and when the two teams have matched up over the past two seasons without either team resting their main players, the Spurs have tried to slow the pace down and limit the number of possessions available for the Warriors.

Green has been superb on both ends of the floor in these playoffs so far. "I know they played well, and we didn't".

"Once he got it going, we tried to keep going back to him", Patty Mills said of Game 6. He didn't hire him for this reason, Steve didn't want this to happen, but they know each other well.
