Warriors become just the 5th team to start NBA playoffs 10-0

Kawhi Leonard was out of the San Antonio lineup after re-injuring his ankle during the third quarter of the Spurs Game 1 loss.

"And you have to believe". I'm like I've got five cops around me, so I just stopped. The game had absolutely no stakes for the Warriors, only Kevin Durant played more than 30 minutes and Klay Thompson didn't even dress for the game.

Mike Brown may be head coach for the Warriors on an interim basis, but one would think he'd be recognizable enough at this point to not have to worry about security by his own building.

The Game 3 over/under is 212, though Leonard's absence could make for a very high-scoring affair. But, I wanted to know what the odds are they'll go 16-0 in the playoffs, which would entail winning their next six games. "So I literally start to go and I'm going to get in the far left lane to go through where we all go through, and a cop out of nowhere pulls in front of me and goes, 'Hey you, stop!"

"All I care about is the next game, and we'll see how they come out". Curry scored 26 of his 40 points after the break while Durant, who was hounded by Leonard for the first 28 minutes of the contest, saw things open up on the offensive end in the second half as well.

The visitors shot 37-percent, well below the Warriors' 56.2 percent, while making just 8 of their 23 shots from 3-pointers compared to Golden State's 18-for-37 from long distance.

Game 3 is set for Saturday night in San Antonio, meaning Leonard will have almost a whole week's rest from Game 1 before the contest is set to tip-off. "Now the real challenge is going on the road and trying to get some wins".

The Warriors just want to keep the momentum that has them at 10-0 this postseason. I think we've maybe felt it too much, Kawhi being gone, in the sense that I don't think - as I watched - I don't think they believed. And then an SUV pulls up, and I hear them over the loud speaker: 'Hey, you, in the Range Rover, stop!

Jonathon Simmons, starting in place of Leonard, had a team-high 22 points for the Spurs, who fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series for the first time since being swept by the Phoenix Suns in the Western semifinals in 2010. Only one other Spurs player made double figures - Davis Bertans with 13 - while LaMarcus Aldridge was restricted to just eight points.
