Warriors take 3-0 series lead against Spurs

The Golden State Warriors host the San Antonio Spur on Sunday for Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.Could this be the first of many playoff battles between the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs?

Popovich couldn't help but imagine the position the Spurs could've been in if they hadn't lost Tony Parker, who missed the series after sustaining a ruptured left quadriceps in the second round, Leonard and Lee. Gregg Popovich himself went off on Pachulia for putting his foot under Leonard on the play, and legendary dirty defender Bruce Bowen called Pachulia out for intentionally trying to hurt the Spurs star. It's a system that's foreign to Aldridge, and so much all of the Blazers offense was directly created by the point-guard-forward combo. The Warriors' backup center, only used for 15 minutes in the first two games, stepped into a starting role with Zaza Pachulia out with a heel contusion. With a win, Golden State would advance to the NBA Finals for the third year in a row, whereas a Spurs victory would force a Game 5 back in Oakland on Wednesday.

On the brink of elimination, the San Antonio Spurs will likely have to play Game 4 of the Western Conference finals without MVP candidate? But with these unstoppable Warriors and the revived Cleveland Cavaliers engaged in a cross-conference game of anything-you-can-do-we-can-do-better, and this collision course toward an unprecedented third consecutive meeting between two teams almost complete, this is about two teams now. The Warriors know that they should easily beat what's left of this Spurs roster and are going to come out with that killer instinct that can be so overwhelming. They just had hired extra security for the entrance, and make sure nobody goes in the school.

The Spurs started without star guard Kawhi Leonard. He shot 53 percent from the field and 42 percent from three.

But he says you can't blame the players.

The varsity is scheduled to announce its first cut-off list on June 20. "We are monitoring the developments", said the official. Further, those applying under the Sports and ECA quota will have to pay an additional ₹Rs. 100.

This performance follows an even more forgettable one, and Aldridge had just eight points in the Warriors' 36-points waxing of San Antonio on May 16. He said Popovich's words may have played a part in sparking the outrage, and added he wished the coach would've considered things more carefully.

Stephen Curry tallied 21 points for the Warriors, who are now a ideal 11-0 in the post-season to match the best start in National Basketball Association playoff history.

Mills exited the second-round series against Houston averaging 11.2 points while shooting 40.9 percent from beyond the arc this postseason. "It does upset me", Pachulia said in the interview.

The Spurs will host game four on Wednesday (AEST).

"I tried my best and they still doubled and clogged from the elbow, tried to make things hard", Aldridge said. One would imagine it to be bad enough to sideline him for Game 4. Golden State's wave and wave of talented players came alive when the Warriors were needed the most, and - all the great coaching and proper preparation aside - San Antonio just couldn't muster a meaningful response. No team has ever recovered from a 3-0 deficit in a seven-game series, meaning the Spurs' season was unofficially on the line.
