Vegas gives the Spurs virtually no chance to beat the Warriors

17 May 2017, 02:14 | Marlene Fleming

We just didn't expect the Spurs to be the team delivering the thrashing. "We're a little bit ahead in our progression". Without his physical presence, Aldridge went to work, scoring 10 points in the first quarter as the Spurs jumped to a 31-24 lead. Though Leonard, Aldridge and Parker were back in the lineup for San Antonio, the Warriors still were without Durant.

San Antonio Spurs will meet Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals after defeating Houston Rockets on Thursday night.

Rockets guard James Harden, a league MVP candidate, was a nonfactor as Houston faced elimination.

Jonathon Simmons started in Leonard's place against the Rockets on Thursday night and scored 18 points.

Leonard had an MRI on Monday and will not play in Game 2, leaving the Spurs angry at what they considered a dirty play by Pachulia and frustrated by their predicament. "He's really turned it on and demanded the ball".

Leonard had 26 points and eight rebounds. The Spurs improved to 16-3 when taking a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven series. More than that, it was the latest reminder that the Spurs aren't going away anytime soon.

So it isn't like we're exactly left wanting for more, so what is it that is going to help The Gifted stand out from the crowd. Their father, played by True Blood star Stephen Moyer , works for the government and is responsible for rounding up mutants.

Canberra's Mills was elevated from his usual bench role to starting point guard after veteran starter Tony Parker's season ended with a leg injury in game two against the Rockets. Recovering from a follow-up procedure May 5 at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak that stems from a pair of surgeries following the 2015 championship run, the 51-year-old Kerr returned to practice for the first time in more than three weeks Saturday.

The announcement that Kawhi Leonard will not play just before tip-off, had swung betting patterns towards a likely Game 7, with the odds on James Harden scoring 40 points, reduced. "I'm looking for us to go all the way and Lebron, here we come". The only other time that San Antonio was a bigger playoff underdog was at the Los Angeles Lakers on May 27, 2001, a game the Spurs lost 111-82 as 9-point underdogs. The five-time All-Star led six Spurs scorers in double figures with a season-high 34 points and 12 rebounds.

"It happens", D'Antoni said. For us, we've got to box out, and obviously for us, if they're sending all those guys to the glass, we want to push it. It was a pleasure coaching them. "I know they feel as bad as I do".

On Saturday, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich confirmed that Leonard will play in Sunday afternoon's Game 1 at Oracle Arena.
