  • What makes the Warriors so special? Livingston singles out Zaza and JaVale

The San Antonio Spurs will enter Sunday's Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors in a must-win situation.

"He will be re-evaluated in one week". Game 4 is Sunday in San Antonio.

San Antonio faces a big uphill battle, as no National Basketball Association team has overcome a 3-0 series deficit.

Spurs assistant coach Ettore Messina, who took over the coaching duties in Gregg Popovich's absence Thursday night, talks with Tony Parker and Patty Mills during Game 3 at the AT&T Center. He did not provide an update on his status after the game, but Steve Kerr revealed during his presser that Livingston's ankle roll was worse than Durant's.

Superstar LeBron James [VIDEO], who is very fond of the #Hall of Fame coach, said on TNT, "I'm a huge Pop fan".




Meanwhile, Joel Embiid scored 23 points in his postseason debut as the Philadelphia 76ers crushed the Miami Heat 128-108 to grab a 2-1 lead in their first round playoff series. In fact, it's fair to say that the Warriors will find no benefit whatsoever if they have to play a fifth game against San Antonio.

Durant and Klay Thompson have picked up the scoring slack with Curry sidelined. If McGee sits, it appears likely Kerr would start veteran Zaza Pachulia to counter the Spurs' size in LaMarcus Aldridge, Kyle Anderson and Pau Gasol.

"[If] stay disciplined to what we do, we'll be fine", Kevin Durant, who was not on the injury report Saturday after twisting his ankle late in Game 3, said. Curry is expected to return for the second round, if the Warriors advance. He had six points and four rebounds in 15 minutes.

The Spurs, who dropped the first two games, took the court with heavy hearts, mourning the death of coach Gregg Popovich's wife, Erin.

"We mourn the loss of Erin", Spurs general manager RC Buford said in a team statement.
