San Antonio sluggish, trails Golden State 2-0

San Antonio sluggish, trails Golden State 2-0

The scheduling of the 2017 NBA Playoffs is the only good piece of luck the Spurs have gotten this week.

Neither the Golden State Warriors nor attorneys for the plaintiffs returned The Post's request for comment. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who was unavailable for comment on Thursday, said after Game 1 that he anticipated Leonard's recovery to take longer than when he originally suffered the injury in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals. Signed to be Leonard's second-fiddle, Aldridge will need to produce more No. 1 option moments should he wish to propel a Leonard-less Spurs team to a victory in Game 3. "You've got to score". He notched six assists in just 15 minutes last month against Minnesota, five during a short second-quarter stretch. "You've got to come out with that edge", he said. His Spurs had just fallen into a two-games-to-none deficit with Game 3 coming Saturday night.

Aside from Simmons, though, there isn't much to write home about if you're the Spurs.

Despite a 0-2 series hole, the Spurs training staff will have until Saturday to attempt to heal Leonard's sprained ankle. Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green, JaVale McGee and Stephen Curry, from left, celebrate from the bench in the closing minutes of the team's 136-100 win over the San Antonio Spurs during Game 2 of the NBA basketball W.

Aldridge's approach played into the hands of the Warriors, who correctly gambled that the collection of role players, rookies and former Development Leaguers surrounding him would be no match for a team featuring four All-Stars.

"It was definitely something different that I've seen", Aldridge said. But, got to play through it. I don't intend to unleash a torrent of negativity toward LMA, but if Pop can admit that the man is passing up shots, then it's not unreasonable for us to discuss our pet peeves too.

China reports progress on South China Sea code of conduct
Adds Thayer: "The reality is that ASEAN is gradually accepting that the South China Sea has become China's lake". Maybe they think I'm scared. "If they're smart, they won't press further", he says.

And since I am not going to ask you to do something that I'm not willing to do myself, I'll begin with my positive thought. "Next game, I won't do that".

The lawsuit was filed in Bexar County district court in Texas on Tuesday, and it alleges that Pachulia's actions against Kawhi Leonard in Sunday's Game 1 "devastated the quality of the Spurs' chances of being competitive" and diminished "the value of the tickets purchased by plaintiff subsequent to their purchase".

"And that was the message to the team afterward, too, going into Game 3". "I'm going to do my job".

The suit, which was obtained by San Antonio's KSAT-TV, alleges Pachulia acted "intentionally" and "maliciously" when he "invaded the landing zone" of Leonard, resulting in Leonard having to leave the game in the third quarter while the Spurs were ahead by 23 points. Golden State would then end the quarter on an 8-0 run to take a 33-16 lead at the end of one.

"I got the freedom just to pick a place to go play ball and leaving there wasn't tough", West said. After a loss like that, why wouldn't anybody be feeling a certain way until the next day? Should Leonard be unable to play in Game 3 - he's now listed as questionable - the Spurs will be facing down a tall task to avoid a 3-0 series deficit. "I see the auto 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'".
