According to a spokesperson at the AT&T Center, the San Antonio Spurs will honor fallen firefighter Scott Deem before tipoff of Game 3 between the Spurs and Golden State Warriors.
After falling to the Golden State Warriors by a score of 120-108 in Game 3, legendary head coach Gregg Popovich is almost out of answers.
"He's probably not gonna play, but I don't think it's serious", Popovich said.
San Antonio Spurs forward Danny Green (14) misses a dunk during the second half in Game 3 of the NBA basketball Western Conference finals on Saturday, May 20, 2017, in San Antonio. Leonard has not played the past two games after he aggravated the injury by landing on the foot of the Warriors'?
Leonard, who was selected to the All-NBA first team on Friday, has not played since aggravating the injury in the third quarter of Game 1 and has not participated in practice other than light shooting.
The Warriors hold a 3-0 lead in the series, and have outscored the Spurs 314-241 since Leonard left the opening game. The Spurs are already without point guard Tony Parker, who suffered a season-ending quadriceps injury earlier in the playoffs, and might not have power forward David Lee, who injured his left knee in San Antonio's 120-108 loss Saturday.
"I love where my game is at", Durant said. The Spurs led by at least 22 points in each of their first four games against the Warriors this season. "That's didn't happen. It's called life". Slap yourself. Quit your crying and move on. "Pomegranates, whatever you get to make you rejuvenate". Lee has a player option that is worth about $3.2 million this upcoming summer.
Popovich even mustered up a bit of humor, joking that the Spurs have the Warriors right where they want them. "It's frustrating. You work all year to get to this point, and not being able to help your team win a game or just being able to play, it's all very frustrating".
