  • Andre Iguodala out for Warriors with soreness in left knee

Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green, JaVale McGee and Stephen Curry, from left, celebrate from the bench in the closing minutes of the team's 136-100 win over the San Antonio Spurs during Game 2 of the NBA basketball W.

"We see this quite often in the NBA where that defender, they just go a little too far and you're not allowed to take the landing area away from the jump shooter", Joe Borgia, the NBA's senior vice president of replay and referee operations, said on Sunday while discussing the foul that was called on Pachulia on his "Making the Call" video segment on nba.com. "I see the vehicle trying to inch forward, I'm like, 'He's about to get arrested.' I said, 'Pop, this is my own building.' He goes, 'I know, when I saw it was you, I died laughing'". "They have so many weapons that the game could swing in a heartbeat, as we experienced".

Leonard has been sidelined for Tuesday's matchup after sustaining an injury in his tender left ankle when he landed on the foot of the Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia late in the third quarter of Game 1 and did not return to the court. Golden State got back in the game with an 18-0 run that started after Leonard reinjured his sprained left ankle in the third quarter.

"He's a chippy player", Green said. There's no Tony, no Kawhi as of right now. "I'm just telling you how I feel. We'll figure it out".

"Because he has this history it can't just be "Oh it was inadvertent".

Popovich pointed to a history of borderline plays by Pachulia during his time with the Dallas Mavericks against the Spurs, including a flagrant foul against Patty Mills, a play where he locked arms with Mills in a way that "could have broken his arm", according to Popovich, and run-ins with David West, who now plays for the Warriors.

Two of the biggest stars on one side delivered when the best player on the other went down. There is no deviation in terms of our attack and our game plan. "We've got to capitalize off that and start Game 2 a lot better".


San Antonio's depleted offense was led by Jonathon Simmons with 22 points. The Warriors, who struggled to score in the first half, shot 58 percent after Leonard left. When you play this kind of physical game, intense game, things happen.

One Spurs fan went as far as starting a petition on change.org to have Golden State's Zaza Pachulia banned from the National Basketball Association. And you want to know if our chances are less? So it makes it a lot less predictable. "So one would logically think maybe it will take longer, but I'm hoping that's not true and that we'll have him for Game 3".

The Warriors are dealing with their own injuries although they aren't as significant as missing an MVP candidate in Leonard. "Unlike Game 1 we did that tonight".

Kerr is recovering from a May 5 procedure at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak and Mike Brown has been coaching during his absence, but the reigning NBA Coach of the Year has been attending practices again and addressing the team in the locker room while watching games behind the scenes.

Iguodala had an MRI but the results weren't yet available when practice ended.

Warriors: Kerr attended his second game this series but again watched behind the scenes as he recovers from a May 5 procedure at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak.
