Where's the drama? Blowouts the rule in these NBA playoffs

Where's the drama? Blowouts the rule in these NBA playoffs

"My approach to this game for 14 years that I've been in the league is to play hard and [give] 100 percent of whatever I have", Pachulia said Monday after practice.

Two days after falling behind by 25 points in the first half to a Leonard-led team, the Warriors had a 25-point lead of their own in 16 minutes on Tuesday en route to a 72-44 half-time advantage.

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. What did we win 67 games or something like that? "Well, we've had a pretty damn good season".

Leonard missed the rest of the game and Golden State's comeback, then he missed the Game 2 blowout loss and may miss Game 3.

Watching great players overcome great obstacles is the best version of sports.

Long content to spend big money on their core while using free agency to sprinkle role players around them, the Spurs lavished a max contract on LaMarcus Aldridge, a four-time All-Star from Portland who would join Kawhi Leonard as one of the focal points of the franchise after Tim Duncan retired.

Leonard or no Leonard, Popovich insisted the series is over if his team doesn't get an attitude adjustment.

Unfortunately, we probably won't get a chance to see him try. The Warriors won the series in six games before losing to San Antonio in the conference semifinals.

Curry was six-for-nine shooting on three-pointers to lead seven Warriors in double figures. He had four rebounds and two assists in seven first quarter minutes, highlighted by that dive, catch and dunk off a nifty Steph Curry assist.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich lambasted Pachulia, deeming the close-out "dangerous" and "unsportsmanlike".

"It's fun to watch". So did Durant, who finished with 16 points after his huge 34-point Game 1, and Green, who had 13.

Golden State is just the fifth National Basketball Association team to win its first 10 playoff games in a given postseason. "If he's got it going, give him the ball".

Jonathon Simmons had a team-high 22 points for the Spurs, who fell behind 0-2 in a play-off series for the first time since being swept by Phoenix in the West semi-finals in 2010.

"When the game starts, it's whoever wants to grab that momentum early and set the tone for the game, and I think we did that a little bit better tonight".

Australian point guard Mills declined to agree or disagree with Popovich's assessment and instead said he was focused on looking ahead.
