Spurs coach Gregg Popovich attacks Trump again: 'he's in a game show'

Golden State entertains San Antonio in Sunday's best-of-7 Western Conference final opener while the LeBron James-led Cavaliers await Monday's game-seven victor between Boston and Washington in an Eastern Conference final that begins Wednesday in Cleveland.

But a victory in the series for the Spurs would give the San Antonio franchise a shot at their sixth National Basketball Association title, all under 68-year-old Head Coach Gregg Popovich.

Popovich is being his typically dry, humorous self, but there's some truth in what he's saying. Rather, they wanted him to have more time to heal in case they needed him for a game seven and more importantly, if they met up with the Warriors in the conference finals. As we saw in the Rockets series, the Spurs have a bevy of rangy wings that they can play if they want to go small. Their first game was back on opening night on October 25 when San Antonio stunned the Warriors with a 129-100 ambush at Golden State.

"You have that third player (Durant) who is definitely one of the top three players in this league, that can go get his own shot at any time", Lue said.

The Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs were the two best teams of the NBA's regular season and now lock horns in the Western Conference Finals for a spot in the NBA Finals and a shot at the title.

Aldridge played with a confidence level the Spurs needed from him all of last series against the Houston Rockets, but he never produced that way consistently.

"Anything can happen in a playoff series", Ginobili said.

The Golden State Warriors has reached the Western Conference Finals for the third consecutive postseason.

Spurs: G Tony Parker (L quadriceps tendon surgery) is listed as out.

Gregg Popovich wouldn't even say his name.

"He looked better today", Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said. "They are tough, and they added to that incredible offensive talent and good, solid defense".

To find out how to watch a live stream of the San Antonio Spurs vs. San Antonio cruised to a 129-100 rout on the road in the season opener for both teams and won the second meeting 107-85 on March 11 at home.

In the playoffs, James is averaging 34.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 7.1 assists and 2.1 steals per game.
