Spurs Fan Suing Zaza Pachulia, Warriors Over Injury To Kawhi Leonard

The Spurs seemed much slower compared to the home-court Warriors.
The NBA said Monday that Pachulia will not face any discipline and that the play will stand as called. "He thinks about things", Popovich said. His old coach, Gregg Popovich, believes West has found a ideal fit in the Bay Area alongside Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and the others, as hard as it is for Pop to see him in another uniform.
The only thing that would make me happy is if the San Antonio Spurs file a lawsuit against the fan and the attorney filing said lawsuit for ignorance, stupidity and embarrassment to the organization and all sports fans everywhere. But Golden State blitzed Aldridge from all angles in Game 2 and the Spurs are scrambling to find their identity with both Leonard and Parker out with injuries.
"Patty Mills is tough to chase around and Klay is trying to chase him and get help from his teammates, but that's work". The play where he took Kawhi down and locked his arm in Dallas and could have broken his arm. If I scoot a little closer, they'll get a little scared because I know I'd get scared. "You've got to be sharp for 48 minutes and you've got to take it to them", Spurs centre Pau Gasol said. Down by 31 in the second, Popovich opted to play his young guys. "I see the vehicle trying to inch forward, I'm like, 'He's about to get arrested.' I said, 'Pop, this is my own building.' He goes, 'I know, when I saw it was you, I died laughing'".
Critics will argue that the Warriors have been the "luckiest" team in basketball the past three years, highlighting all of the opposing superstars they've avoided, for one reason or another, during their back-to-back runs to The Finals.
Neither Draymond Green nor Stephen Curry seemed too anxious on Thursday about their center's mindset heading into hostile territory Saturday night.
"We're down 2-0 and this game is critical for us".
Pachulia was adamant that he did not mean to cause harm to Leonard. "Guys were playing off him and getting easy looks".
"I did whatever I had to do", Pachulia said.
"I have no idea". Stop! So then I got scared.
With Leonard's status for the remainder of the series in limbo, Pachulia was extremely apologetic for what occurred.
One ankle sprain appears to have drastically changed the competitive nature of this series. I could be feeling way better. "I wish it didn't happen, [wish it] had a different result basically". Then an SVU pulls up and I hear him on their loud speaker: 'Hey, you in the Range Rover! "Obviously, it was just something I wanted to do".
"We are just going to keep pounding on that".
"When the game starts, it's whoever wants to grab that momentum early and set the tone for the game, and I think we did that a little bit better tonight. A lot of insane stuff happens on the court, unfortunately".
