Curry shines as Warriors crush Spurs, lead series 2-0

But we've got to be ready Game 3.

"Steph shot the ball and LaMarcus Aldridge went to contest and he went up underneath Steph and Steph avoided landing on his ankle by falling to the ground", Brown said.

"The availability of Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard remained in question Thursday for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals as the team took part in its first practice in preparation for Saturday's matchup against the Golden State Warriors", ESPN's Michael C. Wright reported. What can be expected when the last four teams compete for the chance to enter this year's finals?

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 flawless 8-0 record coming into their matchup with San Antonio.

The Warriors have won 25 of 26 overall, and on many nights have annihilated the competition. Boston Celtics host Cleveland Cavaliers in their opening match in the best-of-seven series.

"And that was the message to the team afterward, too, going into Game 3. All I care about is what happened and the history there exacerbates the whole situation and makes me very, very angry". How better to erase the memory of losing Game 7 than with a ideal postseason? Stephen Curry was racking up points and making ridiculous plays, just ask Dewayne Dedmon, en route to another MVP performance of a night. "So, you know, we talked about it during the game, halftime, after the game, because I think the truth always sets you free".

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.

After struggling to flaunt their familiar dominance to start Game 1, Golden State came out firing on all cylinders in the series' second leg.

Warriors taking on Spurs
Leonard is questionable for Game 3 of the series, and the Spurs desperately need after being routed in Game 2 without their star. I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit feeling sorry for themselves psychologically.

There will be no surprising these Warriors.

But you've got to believe that the Warriors are so much less susceptible to national outrage and the 24/7 talk-show mania than a normal team, even a normal super-team. "Now the challenge will be not relaxing".

If that's the case, it might not be until Finals that there is an opponent with the confidence to stand up to the Warriors.

After sweeping Utah and the Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio took a 2-0 lead over Oklahoma City in the Western Conference finals. Boston has homecourt advantage, but the Cavaliers are still the favorite and the Warriors can not be concerned about chasing down the Cavs or history just yet.

Popovich said the Spurs were "feeling sorry for themselves" after the controversial loss of Leonard, injured in Sunday's game one when he landed on the foot of Warriors' centre Zaza Pachulia in what the coach deemed a unsafe and unsportsmanlike play.

"So I answer the phone and Pop is dying".

Warriors: Coach Steve Kerr attended his second game this series but again watched behind the scenes as he recovers from a May 5 procedure at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak.

"They have never really doubled like that and triple-teamed at times".
