Warriors throttle Spurs to take 2-0 series lead

Spurs fans have every right to be upset with Zaza Pachulia after his Game 1 closeout injured Kawhi Leonard.

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.

Steve Kerr provided a strong message, just not from his usual spot on the bench: Play with urgency. An annihilation occurred: Warriors 136, Spurs 100, a 36-point destruction that improved the Warriors to 10-0 in the playoffs and pushed them up 2-0 in the West Finals as the series shifts to San Antonio. "Once we settled in, as opposed to trying to get it all back in one play, it started working for us". I don't think they started the game with a belief.

David Lee acknowledged the the Spurs' loss to the Warriors in Game 1 still stings.

"Now we are going back home and there's still a lot of reasons to believe".

Jonathon Simmons was the only one that got on the bus for the Spurs tonight, I think everyone else stayed behind at the hotel in San Francisco. "The truth always quote-un-quote sets you free". "Not just come out with it, but keep it for 48 minutes, especially against a team that if you let them loose and they get comfortable, they're going to make four or five threes in a row and now you're in deep trouble". "That's pretty lame. So call it like it is, and we didn't come to play". We felt sorry for ourselves. After losing Game 1, Manu Ginobili told reporters he would rather lose by 20 points than lose the close game they played on Sunday.

"I have no idea", Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said Tuesday, via The Mercury News, regarding Leonard's status. Leonard's defense was top notch, his offense efficient, and the Spurs' size, length and depth gave the Warriors fits.

Leonard, who missed the last game against the Houston Rockets, had to leave the game in the third quarter due to a nagging, sprained left ankle.

Starting center Zaza Pachulia was scheduled for an MRI exam Wednesday on his bruised right heel after an X-ray was negative.

Golden State quickly established its pass-happy, up-tempo style to take the Spurs out from the opening tip.

By dominating Game 2, the Warriors looked like the same team that had steamrolled their opponents in the first two rounds of the playoffs, and to a ideal 8-0 record coming into their matchup with San Antonio. McCaw, who had played fewer than 10 combined minutes since the end of the first round, became the first Warriors rookie with at least 18 points off the bench in a playoff game since Robert Parish in 1977, and the first rookie in the National Basketball Association with 18-or-more points off the bench in a playoff game since James Harden in 2010.

Kerr remained off the sideline as he recovers from an operation to fix a spinal fluid leak, and Mike Brown continued filling in as acting coach.
