Spurs vs. Warriors, Game 1 live stream

Gregg Popovich's post-loss press conference had everything, from a fake Gatorade rant to mocking of reporters

And that was before they had Kevin Durant. Stephen Curry has suited up for most of the season, but 31 missed games is still troubling. Curry feints, double-feints and then backs off to reset. "Obviously, we've had a lot of injuries, but the games have not been meaningful, and our play and our focus reflected that". Since Curry will be sidelined for the entirety of the first round, the slightly disgruntled Spurs seem the ideal matchup.

But with their postseason quest toward a fourth consecutive Finals appearance, and potentially their third championship in four years, beginning Saturday during Game 1 of their first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said their poor play over the last month was tied to his team having locked into the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference standings, one spot behind Houston. The forward has for the first time in 15 National Basketball Association seasons played every single regular-season game, averaging 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game. Leonard is a player that carries himself very professionally, and never causes unnecessary drama that could be a distraction to his team.

When asked about how he feels going into the first-round battle against the Spurs, Kerr also said, "Let's find our groove the next couple of games and get things rolling, and I think we'll be in great shape". That should have been the Spurs, finishing off the Warriors or losing control in epic fashion.

Durant ready for huge series? Pachulia started all of last season's series, but things have changed significantly this season. The juggernaut Warriors, rolling towards redemption.

Rumored specs for the phone include an nearly 6-inch Full HD display with an 18:9 ratio, a Snapdragon 630 chipset and 6GB of RAM. The smartphone will feature a rear-facing fingerprint scanner which will be hidden within the Motorola batwing logo.

For this formula to have worked even this far necessitates some kind of talent level, and none has been more important that 2018 NBA All-Star, LaMarcus Aldridge.

Manu Ginobili had a steal and buzzer-beating three to cap an ugly opening 12 minutes for San Antonio. However, the playoffs will be a different animal and whatever weaknesses he may have will be put under the microscope. "It's so toxic and severed there between the front office and Kawhi Leonard, that it might really be at the point of no return". Without Leonard for nearly 90percent of the regular season, San Antonio won 47 games and secured the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference. It was a broom made of metaphysical middle fingers - to Kawhi, to the Spurs, to all the fans who just wanted to see what it looked like when two flawless basketball teams played ideal basketball against each other. We saw it previous year when these teams met in the playoffs and Leonard went down after Zaza Pachulia slid under him on a jumper, at that point the Warriors ran away with the series. As of Saturday morning, 55 percent of public bets are coming in on host Golden State. "Kawhi is still a Spur", Miesha Slayton wrote (via News 4).

"They're as disciplined as anybody we're going to face in terms of establishing a style, a pace, a defensive awareness and a mind-set", Kerr said of the Spurs, who tied with the Utah Jazz for the fewest points allowed per game (99.8). It nearly certainly won't be enough to get them out of the first round.

It's probably going to be the former - expect the Warriors to flip the switch. Maybe they'll get Curry back in the next round and keep rolling.
