Kawhi Leonard Expected to Miss Remainder of Postseason

Kawhi Leonard Expected to Miss Remainder of Postseason

Admittedly, this is a small sample size and plus-minus ratings aren't ideal, but check this: When Aldridge and Pau Gasol were on the floor together in 3:14 in the second quarter, the Spurs were a plus-4.

While the Spurs have been down a great player, the Warriors have struggled with injuries as well. This begins our three takeaways from the Game 2 loss. The Warriors, meanwhile, were able to ride their hot shooting to a 2-0 series lead. The Dubs committed only four turnovers over the final two frames, while forcing San Antonio to commit seven.

"I thought the Spurs did a great job of countering the way we defended in Game 1 and they beat us on a lot of plays", Kerr said.

San Antonio, meanwhile, looks outmatched by both the Warriors' vast talent level (yes, even without Curry) and Leonard's looming sabbatical, a frequent off-court conversation topic. The Warriors have shot at least 52 percent in both games.

The Warriors own nine consecutive Game 2 victories, all at the Oracle. Ever since, the University of Texas product reached the All-Star Game this season and carried the Spurs for extended stretches with 23.1 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. The Warriors will be forced to double down on Aldridge moving forward, which makes the outside shooting of the Spurs even more crucial.

Financial markets have been choppy this year, with US stocks down slightly after a strong performance in 2017. But in the short term, analysts agree the U.S.is poised for a good economic year.

JaVale McGee has been listed as questionable for Game 3 against the Spurs on the Warriors' official injury report released Wednesday afternoon. Kevin Durant recorded a team-high 32 points in Game 2 while Klay Thompson had 31 points and five assists. The game will air on TNT at 9:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 19, 2018.

The Spurs boast an incredible advantage at the AT&T Center, and one that the Warriors would be foolish to underestimate as they build on their postseason success.

The Golden State Warriors know that they can't allow a veteran team like the Spurs to have any hope.

Stephen Curry did not play on Monday night as he remains out with an MCL sprain, but his replacement in the starting lineup did his best impression of the two-time MVP in the opening quarter.
