San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich lashed out at Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia on Monday, blaming the Georgian worldwide for unsafe play over the incident that has ruled Kawhi Leonard out of Game 2. San Antonio Spurs' Dewayne Dedmon, center, dunks against the Golden State Warriors during the first half of Game 2 of the NBA basketball Western Conference finals, Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in Oakland, Calif. Golden State got back in the game with an 18-0 run that started after Leonard reinjured his sprained left ankle in the third quarter. But when you're one of the best players in the league, playing on the NBA's postseason stage against the league's best team, it becomes a big deal. "You saw my teammate was behind the screen, so I had to challenge the shot". "Give all of our guys credit".
Once the Spurs got by, Brown's phone rang with a familiar caller ID - "Gregg Popovich, San Antonio Spurs". Forward Andre Iguodala was listed as questionable because of a sore left knee that limited him to 10 minutes in Game 1. Oh, down in San Antonio, it's going to be more than a dogfight. We don't know what's going to happen in the East.
Kawhi Leonard's ankle injury turned the game on its head as the Warriors capitalized and he is set to miss the second clash of the series. He reportedly was having an MRI done Monday morning.
"And you have to believe". I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit feeling sorry for themselves psychologically. "And it showed with the lack of edge, intensity, grunt".
Given how cautious Popovich is with injuries, no one should have expected to see Leonard play in Game 2. "So one would logically think maybe it will take longer, but I'm hoping that's not true and that we'll have him for Game 3".
The Warriors were given a half-time pep talk by Kerr, who has given way to Brown since the second playoff game due to complications from back surgery.
Coming as it did, the Warriors' two-point win was a kick to the gut.
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. Cleveland also has swept its first two playoff opponents this year as it enters the Eastern Conference finals with Boston, marking the first time a team has stated out 8-0 in two straight postseasons.
"They're going to play as hard as they can until it's over". Without Parker to control the tempo of the offense or Leonard to take the pressure off of Aldridge, the Warriors punished San Antonio, holding their visiting opponent to just 37 percent shooting on their way to the 136-100 win.

Davis Bertans dropped in 13 points, and Dewayne Dedmon had nine points to go with a team-high nine rebounds off the bench for the Spurs, whose reserves outscored their starters 53-47.
Popovich pointed to a history of borderline plays by Pachulia during his time with the Dallas Mavericks against the Spurs, including a flagrant foul against Patty Mills, a play where he locked arms with Mills in a way that "could have broken his arm", according to Popovich, and run-ins with David West, who now plays for the Warriors.
