Warriors, Spurs will try to use break to rest and heal again

But as of Friday afternoon, when Leonard spoke with reporters, he was still officially listed as questionable on that bothersome left ankle.

Golden State is just the fifth National Basketball Association team to win its first 10 playoff games in a given postseason. He sprained it on May 9 when the Spurs beat the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of their second-round series, and he re-injured it twice Sunday afternoon in Game 1, having not played for five days.

"But offensively, I think it's a combination of them playing good defense and also us not finding our chemistry, not finding our rhythm, and not knowing where to be with two of our main playmakers not there".

After sweeping Utah and the Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio took a 2-0 lead over Oklahoma City in the Western Conference finals.

"Our best player is down", Popovich said about the health of Leonard, their franchise player, and his availability for the upcoming playoff games.

MRI results on Leonard's ankle revealed no structural damage. "It's frustrating. You work all year to get to this point, and [not] being able to help your team win a game or just being able to play, it's all very frustrating".

"Juan Vazquez on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Pachulia and the Warriors on behalf of Spurs season ticket holders and San Antonio card shop What's On Second".

It's become abundantly clear that the Spurs have no chance to beat the Warriors if Leonard can't play.

"I don't think we believed", the veteran coach said.

Ironically, Pachulia sustained a right heel contusion early in Game 2 and is questionable for Game 3. After scoring a playoff-high 136 points in Game 3, the Warriors have managed to total 207 points in the last six quarters. "If he doesn't, we'll try to face the game as if it's a Game 7". Golden State was so dominant that it had more assists (39) than the Spurs had made field goals (37). It's a lot easier to do that when we don't have everybody that we need to make plays so they can trap a little more on those guys. "So, you know, that's just my mindset at the moment, just trying to get better". "If he doesn't, it's over and we have to go and compete as hard as we can and do our best game". The Spurs nevertheless summoned their inner strength and bolted to a commanding lead in the game. Trailing by 25 in the first quarter, the Warriors went on an 18-0 run after Leonard's exit to get back in the game.
