Nearly arrested? Mike Brown was just trying to get to Game 2


Leonard left Game 1 on Sunday after re-injuring his tender left ankle in the third quarter when Pachulia's foot slid under Leonard's following a jumper by the All-Star forward.

A Game 3 return for Leonard in the series of Warriors and Spurs still offers a flicker of hope, but nobody really wants to be down for a couple of games to these Golden State, no matter what their recent history with 3-1 leads might suggest. Save Leonard for the two games in Texas!

"Two-step, lead-with-your-foot close-out is not appropriate", Popovich said. "I see the vehicle trying to inch forward, I'm like, 'He's about to get arrested.' I said, 'Pop, this is my own building.' He goes, 'I know, when I saw it was you, I died laughing'".

"You can go back and look at Dallas games, where he got a flagrant two (foul) for elbowing Patty Mills".

Leonard injured the same ankle in Game 5 of the Western semifinals on May 9 and sat out Game 6 against the Houston Rockets on Thursday. Who gives a damn about what his intent was. Have you ever heard of manslaughter? What I saw, he kept moving in that direction after he contested the shot. "If you win four games, you're back in The Finals, so no matter who you're playing, you understand that".

"It doesn't bother me", he said of how Popovich characterised him. "I'm not a dirty player".


Popovich said if Leonard remained in the game and San Antonio lost, he would go to practice the next day and "move on. We can't ease into the game", Brown said of his ailing boss' address to the team in the locker room before the game.

The Golden State Warriors have been one of the most dominant National Basketball Association teams in recent years, and while their All-Star packed roster is a testament to their success, much credit is also due to head coach Steve Kerr.

I don't care. If it's dirty, it's dirty and legislate it out of the game. "You know, having your horses is important at this point in the deal..." "I'd probably list him as questionable".

If the Spurs had nothing to lose going into Game 1 in terms of doubters for the series as a whole, that attitude is only maximized here for Game 2.

Game three is in San Antonio on Saturday. The more compelling truth is that the Warriors have pressed their post-Leonard advantage, outscoring the Spurs, 194-133, putting math to not only the matter of belief but the different in present talent levels as well.
