  • The Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant drives past the San Antonio Spurs’ Rudy Gay during the first quarter of Game 1 of their first-round playoff series Saturday at Oracle Arena in Oakland

A Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs has been a daunting task in itself for the Golden State Warriors in recent years, but now down 0-2 and with their season in danger of an 0-3 hole - it's nearly certain they will come with guns blazing for tonight's matchup.

"You'll have to ask Kawhi and his group that question", Popovich told reporters when asked if Leonard could rejoin the Spurs during their first-round series against the Golden State Warriors.

Over the course of those two games, McGee has averaged 12.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks in 17.5 minutes.

Lamarcus Aldridge led the way for the Spurs with 34 points and 12 rebounds, while Kevin Durant led the way for the Warriors with 32 points.

Popovich's San Antonio Spurs just didn't have enough answers for Golden State in Game 1 of their Western Conference series, and Spoelstra's Miami Heat offered Philadelphia absolutely no resistance in a second-half meltdown that opened their Eastern Conference series.

In the two wins over San Antonio, he's shooting 23-of-33 from the field and 10-of-14 from beyond the arc. 76ers coach Brett Brown knows the Heat will make adjustments, and it'll be incumbent on him to react on the fly in Game 2.




Warriors backup center David West, who turned his left ankle early in the fourth quarter of Game 2 and did not return, is available tonight.

While he got a lucrative deal from the Orlando Magic, Hill played just 200 games in six seasons with the team.

The Warriors ran the Spurs off the floor in Game 1 on Saturday, earning a 113-92 win without Stephen Curry. Visit SportsLine now to get the winning side of Game 3 in the Warriors-Spurs series Thursday from the top-rated National Basketball Association handicapper.

For the past four National Basketball Association seasons, the Golden State Warriors have been one of the most dominant and successful teams in National Basketball Association history.

The Spurs struggled on the road in the 2017-18 season, posting one of the worst records in the National Basketball Association (14-27).

Game 2: After working their way through a Game 1 hangover in the first half, the Warriors took out the Spurs with their customary third-quarter surge and rolled to a 116-101 victory at Oracle Arena.
