Without coach Gregg Popovich, Spurs look to avoid getting swept by Warriors

Without coach Gregg Popovich, Spurs look to avoid getting swept by Warriors

But the Spurs can mess up the Warriors' week.

It turns out the Golden State Warriors didn't really need Steph Curry for the opening round of the 2018 Western Conference playoffs. Currently, the Warriors lead the Spurs 2-0 in the series.

As the Golden State Warriors look to advance to the second round with a win on Sunday, it appears that they won't be too shorthanded. That won't help Stephen Curry get back into the lineup, but at this point in the season, no one is feeling 100 percent, and a week of rest, at home, could pay big dividends down the line this postseason. Everyone on the Warriors roster could use the break.

The Warriors know better than most about the importance of closing out a series when given the chance. Curry, who has been rehabbing a sprained left knee, won't play in Game 4, but head coach Steve Kerr said "he is coming along well" after four weeks. Being down 3-0, they don't want to get swept. Things happen. We've experienced it here.

"Against a fantastic team like they are, we know what we're playing against". They briefly narrowed the gap to single digits early in the period, but the Warriors quickly regained control.

In the statement that the Spurs released Wednesday, San Antonio general manager R.C.

Curry averaged 26.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.6 steals a game for the Warriors this season, when they finished 58-24, second-best in the Western Conference to Houston and third-best overall in the National Basketball Association, also behind Eastern Conference pace-setter Toronto.

Man, these guys are excited to play... Who will walk out victoriously at the AT&T Center?

Everyone who talked at practice Saturday asked the same question through their tone - can you believe we have to do this again? But it's hard to tell how a team is going to react, how your head is going to react. And that turned out just fine.

"I've never been through something like this", Manu Ginobili said Saturday.

Game 4 between the Warriors and Spurs will be played Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET.

While Golden State has had little trouble scoring, the Spurs have struggled mightily to put the ball in the basket, shooting only 41.3 percent. "Hopefully after this two and a half days, we're going to be in a better situation emotionally, and hopefully it fuels us".

Nope, there was still a job to do.
