Kawhi Leonard Officially Questionable for Game 3 vs. Warriors with Ankle Injury

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich gave a typically forthright assessment of his team's obliteration.

Aldridge had just eight points on 4-for-11 shooting in Game 2 as he was swarmed all night by a Warriors defense that was free to double- and sometimes triple-team him since it didn't have to worry about Leonard, who missed the game with an ankle injury.

"They came out with a sense of urgency tonight from the beginning and they did that for 48 minutes".

"I think he's got a major responsibility in Game 3 to come out and get something done, whether it's for himself or teammates", Popovich said.

Ironically, Pachulia sustained a right heel contusion early in Game 2 and is questionable for Game 3.

For San Antonio, there is no time to lose. "If he doesn't, it's over and we have to go and compete as hard as we can and do our best game".

Popovich was left perplexed and downright disgusted that his team got dominated in such embarrassing fashion without Leonard, who re-injured his tender left ankle in Game 1 after stepping on Pachulia's foot.

"I'm not anxious about that", Leonard said. "I'm not trying to forecast what I think Boston nor Cleveland should be thinking about".

"And you have to believe".

So I'm feeling myself a little bit, I'm like hey, I'm not getting bullied by either Oakland PD or San Francisco PD. It showed in the lack of edge, intensity ...

But the second half was the start of the end for the Spurs. We felt sorry for ourselves.

"We've got to get our guys ready to play a tough Game 3". "Don't want to hobble around or shoot off-balance shots".

Simmons was the lone bright spot for the Spurs, scoring 22 points but his supporting cast was non-existent.

"It's fun to watch". Stephen Curry once again led Golden State with 29 points, Kevin Durant had 16 while Draymond Green chipped in with 13. Just asked him how life was, how things were going.

Curry meanwhile had nothing but praise for Warriors youngster McCaw, who filled in for the injured Andre Iguodala with 18 points. "So that was huge", Curry said of the Warriors, who had 39 assists on their 50 field goals, and shot 56.2 percent from the field. And then an SUV pulls up, and I hear them over their speaker, 'hey you, in the Range Rover.

San Antonio needs to win Game 3 or face the prospect of being swept in a playoff series for the first time since the Suns did so in the 2009-10 Western semifinals.

Leonard acknowledged that there's a fine line between playing with a little pain and risking further injury.
