Spurs' Kawhi Leonard has been ruled out for Game 3 vs. Warriors

Spurs' Kawhi Leonard has been ruled out for Game 3 vs. Warriors

Leonard, who was selected to the All-NBA first team on Friday, has not played since aggravating the injury in the third quarter of Game 1 and has not participated in practice other than light shooting.

Popovich is up for Coach of the Year along with Mike D'Antoni of the Houston Rockets and Erik Spoelstra of the Miami Heat.

"[I'm] just seeing if I can run and at least be myself on the court", Leonard continued. In a nutshell, he's the consummate team player. He's only played 15 minutes and, in them, the Warriors have only outscored the Spurs by one.

Leonard's production has been even stronger in the playoffs, averaging 27.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 4.6 assists a night. Top NBA pundits, even those who work for the league's broadcast partners and therefore pretty much work for the league, have been telling us all along that there's no objective in watching the NBA Playoffs until the Finals. This is the second straight season Leonard has been selected to the All-NBA First Team. Dwight Howard won the award in 2009, 2010 and 2011. "We'll put it away, go get a meal, and Game 3 I expect to see a different team". "Pretty unbelievable to watch, each year how he's come back better and better". Bradley scored 13 on just 35 percent shooting in Game 2's embarrassing loss. The next day, Popovich called the play "dangerous" and "unsportsmanlike" and insisted Pachulia has a history of such.

With San Antonio still missing their MVP candidate, the Warriors went on to win Game 2 by a 36 point margin, 136-100, at Oracle Arena. Popovich is perfectly fine with folding his hand when he can tell things aren't going well, especially when his players have already folded theirs. The Spurs won titles in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2014. Playing their first season in 20 years without Duncan, the Spurs remained title contenders under Popovich's steady leadership. The Silver and Black reached the playoffs for the 20th consecutive season, the longest active streak in the four major USA sports and tied for the third-best in National Basketball Association history. He is 166-104 (.615) in the playoffs.

All the talking heads on television can not wait for these boring conference finals to end and the championship finals to begin.

Pachulia will most certainly receive a villain's welcome for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Saturday at AT&T Center regardless of whether he's on the court or not, simply because he was involved in the play that injured Kawhi Leonard in the series opener. Now with what they're dealing with, you can't count out San Antonio, but if Golden State picks up their game and they're shorthanded and Kawhi's hobbled, you would hope that they could probably find a way to win in five.
