Warriors take 2-0 series lead on Spurs, Wade shockes 76ers

"I often curse Pop for doing what he did", said Bob Mulherin, a Spurs fan for more than 25 years.

Andre Iguodala, the 2015 Finals MVP, started a second straight game and had 14 points, seven rebounds and five assists as the Warriors beat the Spurs for the 10th time in 11 games covering the regular season and playoffs. "I don't need to do that".

"Once the balls start falling for you, then, it just goes from there". "He just plays through everything".

"No one can make up Steph's contributions individually", Thompson said. As a Southern California native, expect both Los Angeles teams to get involved.

So far, the public has largely reserved judgment, simply because we have no idea what's going on; while take-ville loves nothing more than to assign blame, in this case it would be baseless and arbitrary even by the standards of sports discourse.

It is highly unlikely that Curry will feature in either game and the Warriors could seal their place in the next round with wins in both encounters. But Thompson is profoundly modest in ignoring his part in so far crushing any hopes the Spurs might have had to exploit Curry's absence. Rudy Gay, who was shuffled into the starting lineup after his solid Game 1 showing, added 12 points while Manu Ginobili finished with 10 in the loss. With Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid having established themselves as the franchise's cornerstones, could a package centered around Markelle Fultz and Philadelphia's two first-round picks in this year's draft entice the Spurs?

In March, Popovich questioned whether the Second Amendment is "useful" any longer, and said Trump "brings out the dark side of human beings" - criticisms that numerous Spurs faithful took personally.

"But, in the second half, we matched that effort level and physicality, and were able to get that upper hand".


Wade's experience proved crucial throughout, inspiring a first-half fightback to wipe out the 76ers' early lead before shepherding Miami to the win in a nervy finale. "That was the best defensive 48 minutes that we have competed against all year long". He hit a three in the corner and then he hit kind of a runner. It was really the second half where they became unglued.

The Warriors, probably the best third-quarter team in the league, down 53-47 at halftime, outscored the Spurs 33-22 in the third frame on their way to a 116 -101 victory to go up 2-0 in the series.

A reporter asked Thompson about Kerr's theory that time off from the thumb injury was paying dividends. "But right now, who knows?"

"Klay has to defend the opponent's best guard night-in, night-out".

"You've got to make shots".

The Spurs don't play well when trailing in a series as they are just 1-5 ATS and SU in their last six when behind. That belief stemmed from the remaining talent, with Thompson and Durant providing most of the scoring.

Mike Brown remains interested in becoming a head coach again but he's enjoying his current role as Steve Kerr's lead assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors.
