Kawhi Out for Game 2, Pop Enraged as Warriors Up 1-0

It was a controversial Game 1 on the Western Conference Finals side, but once all the dust settled, it was Zaza Pachulia who won the game ball as the Warriors overcame a 25-point second have deficit to take down the Spurs in Game 1 by a score of 113-111.

With Golden State trailing by a wide margin, midway through the third, Pachulia through his foot out while contesting a Kawhi Leonard jump shot. Leonard fell on the foot, re-aggravated his ankle injury and would immediately leave the game. Leonard would not return and the team announced that reigning Defensive Player of the Year will miss Game 2 due to an ankle sprain.

Let’s just say Head Coach Gregg Popovich of the Spurs was not too pleased.

Was it dirty? What do you think?

The Warriors would take advantage of the Leonard injury, going on an 18-0 run, and handing the Spurs the game 1 loss behind a 40-point effort from Stephen Curry.

“It was actually the perfect Game 1,” Draymond Green said following the Game 1 victory. “You get punched in the mouth, but yet to can still get the win. It’s a bit tougher in Game 2 when you win easily, 20 or 30 points, and then you usually have a letdown. Now we can come out in Game 2 on edge knowing how good this team is. This team just came off something real, where they had to fight in order to take control of that series. Ours was lighter than that. To play a great team like that and get punched in the mouth, now we can get have our guard up and try to start a little better. That’ll be big for us.”

The Spurs are 8-1 on the season without Leonard, but with the chances of beating the Warriors slim to begin with, the Spurs uphill climb only gets tougher as the series moves forward.
