Spurs Aldridge Reveals He "Took Wrong Approach"

Spurs Aldridge Reveals He

Before the game, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich labeled SF Kawhi Leonard (sprained left ankle) "questionable" for Game 3 on Saturday, leaving the door open for a possible return.

Leonard left in the third quarter after he reinjured his left ankle, and the Warriors capitalized with an 18-0 run.

"Lead with your foot close-out is not appropriate". "It's risky, it's unsportsmanlike, it's just not what anybody does to anybody else".

"This particular individual has a history with that kind of action", Popovich said.

"We've had a pretty damn good season". Everybody says it, but when you have a guy like Pat who doesn't really know when his minutes are going to come, he always stays ready. I'm sitting here and I see this black Range Rover, I see all these cops surrounding him and I see the vehicle trying to inch forward and I'm like, he's about to get arrested.' I said: "'Pop, this is my own building.' He said: "'I know when I saw it was you, I died laughing'". No one will feel bad for us. Replays show Pachulia took an extra step and slid his foot directly under Leonard. LaMarcus Aldridge continues to struggle, scoring just eight points in Game 2 after his meltdown in Game 1's closing quarter. Bruce Bowen, a former player known for dirty play, agreed the play was dirty.

GOLDMAN: Pachulia denies claims that he's a dirty player.

GOLDMAN: In the 2015 playoffs, this play helped prompt baseball's adoption of the slide rule to protect infielders from hard-charging baserunners. "That's what I was taught since Day 1". "He just plays the game the right way", he said.

The Warriors' shot an impressive 56 per cent from the field and 49 per cent from behind the three point line, with Stephen Curry leading the way with 29 points.

Kevin Durant had 16 points, and Draymond Green contributed 13 points, a team-high nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocked shots to Golden State's 10th consecutive postseason win this season. If and when Leonard comes back he will not be 100%, but it will be better than nothing.

The Warriors demolished the Spurs 136-100 in Oakland, California, on Tuesday to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven NBA Western Conference Finals series. From trailing by as many as 25 points in Game 1 to winning by 36 points in Game 2, the Warriors have operated on both ends of the dominance spectrum en route to a 2-0 series lead.

Where To Watch San Antonio Spurs vs. But this is (garbage).

Pachulia said he simply challenged the shot like he was taught. In an old article that popped up on reddit, Popovich goes on a similar rant but instead of shitting on Bruce Bowen's shitty way of playing defense, he goes the victim route, saying his guy is "being singled out". Have you ever heard of manslaughter?
