Warriors Complete Sweep of Spurs to Move on to NBA Finals

The Warriors win keeps them on course for an unprecedented third consecutive NBA Finals meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who lead their Eastern Conference finals series against Boston 2-1.

Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard was ruled out for Game 4 of the Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors in San Antonio, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich announced pregame Monday.

We can argue about the quality of teams the Warriors have faced, but the only thing that changes this postseason run from any other is that they didn't have to deal with the Spurs' Kawhi Leonard after Game 1. While Golden State was celebrating, it was bittersweet as the Spurs' Manu Ginobili, 39, played in what is likely is final National Basketball Association game as retirement rumors persist. Andre Iguodala scored the Warriors' first 7 points of the first quarter. The Warriors zapped themselves awake, came back to win that day and then whacked a scarred Spurs team by 36, 12 and 14 the last three games.

Now, Durant is on the other side by helping the Warriors make it back to the NBA Finals for the third straight season.

"We feel like we can play better", said Brown, who is filling in on the sideline for an injured Steve Kerr. I think it's going to be a priority in the off-season to get him right mentally and physically, because he just wasn't himself in the post season this year.

Ginobili scored 15 points in 32 minutes on Monday. "An incredible competitor, even more fun playing against him", Durant said of Ginobili. "You were better than us.' It's the easiest thing to do". Many thought previous year was the end of the road, but Gregg Popovich was able to talk him into one more.

San Antonio trails the best-of-seven series 3-0. Yet, that's exactly what Golden State is doing through the first three rounds of the 2017 postseason. Ginobili had come off the bench in 55 straight playoff games prior to his start in Game 4. Brown was sacked by the Cavaliers twice during his career - no doubt he'd want a crack at getting the ultimate last laugh. They led the league in steals and blocks per game, were third in defensive rebounding (trailing the two leaders by just one-tenth of a percentage point) and really don't get the credit they deserve. "They've been the best team in the west for the last few years and they proved it again".

The 28-year-old will likely receive a major pay rise with multiple teams expected to pursue him in the off-season, with some estimates pointing to a four-year, $US75-million deal. The four time National Basketball Association champ and two time all-star got a standing ovation as he left the game in the fourth quarter to head to the locker room. "It's weird, it's like grandpa and grandson, but still very close".
