Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 29 points, hitting 8 of 13 shots, including 6 of 9 from the 3-point line.

"It could have gone either way".

"I thought in game one we didn't come out with a sense of urgency", said Warriors acting coach Mike Brown, who is standing in for the ailing Steve Kerr. "I give our guys a ton of credit".

McCaw dropped 3 3s en route to 18 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals.

The Spurs were never appreciably closer in the second half.

"LaMarcus has to score for us".

"That was a huge pickup for us, obviously, with Andre out". "So, I don't agree with the calls that I'm a dirty player". Regardless, the Warriors destroyed the Spurs tonight and it was over before it even started. Of course, it won't matter a bit if the rest of the Spurs act like they'd rather just sit there.

However, Halep was improving all the time, and she broke again to level, and saved break point to hold for the lead, 6-5. The Frenchwoman will take on the reigning champion after overcoming world number nine Kuznetsova 6-4, 7-6 (4) on Friday.

Mills had a rough shooting game in the loss, missing all six three-point attempts and connecting with just one of eight shots from the field.

Shaun Livingston scored in double figures for the first time this postseason with 10 points for Golden State. I think he's got a major responsibility in Game 3 to come out and get something done.

"It's going to be a physical series", Brown said.

"That's just been the message all year, just play with urgency and start the game off with some energy and throw the first punch", Durant said. For now, the Spurs trail 1-0 in the series, and if Leonard misses any time, the Spurs could be in big trouble. The Spurs hung on to end the quarter with a 90-81 lead. There's more than half of the third quarter still to play. The Warriors have beaten teams by an average of 17.0 points through the first 10 games. The more compelling truth is that the Warriors have pressed their post-Leonard advantage, outscoring the Spurs, 194-133, putting math to not only the matter of belief but the different in present talent levels as well. The Spurs came back to take the lead on a basket by Aldridge to make the score 104-103. The "intent" debate has been raging over in the States since it happened, as the Spurs collapsed without their leader and then were thrashed last night in game two. "Somebody's got to tell him", Popovich noted in a rare light moment, "if the California Highway Patrol tells you to move over, you move over".

During the third quarter, Pachulia closed out on a Leonard shot attempt and appeared to put his foot under Leonard after the shot. There's likely only one team in this league that can compete with the Warriors when they do that and it isn't the Spurs. He made all 11 of his free throws.

The bench contributed a season-best 63 points. So, he felt it necessary to explain what went down. "That's when we struggled". Jonathon Simmons had 12 points. Instead, we were left questioning if Pachulia did or didn't intentionally step underneath Leonard. We're just going to keep pounding on that. Ask David West, his current teammate, how things went when Zaza was playing for Dallas and he and David got into it. Only two of the four teams that previously achieved the feat went on to win the title.
