Andre Iguodala out for Warriors with soreness in left knee

  • San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard warms up before Game 1 of the NBA basketball Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland Calif. Sunday

The Golden State Warriors pummeled the Spurs 136-100, taking a commanding 2-0 series lead as the best-of-seven series shifts to San Antonio for Games 3 and 4.

Simmons made two free throws later for the Spurs, but Curry tied the game at 106-106 with a trey and Green made a driving layup for the lead.

When Popovich opened the news conference with a crack to a local reporter about the wines produced in his area, it seemed he might take the lighthearted route.

When Leonard came down his already injured left ankle rolled off Pachulia's shoe and he crumbled in pain.

You still go to jail, I think, when you're texting and you end up killing somebody. "So one would logically think maybe it will take longer, but I'm hoping that's not true and that we'll have him for Game 3". Can you blame the Spurs for not believing? I can't blame the Spurs, because they're without Leonard and Tony Parker. That's the way I process it. "That was disappointing", said Pop.

"I stopped, I did what they asked me to and I let them take care of San Antonio", Brown said. "He said: 'Mike, I didn't know that was you". "We've got to come out from the beginning with a sense of urgency". If Kawhi Leonard plays, the Spurs can find themselves in a tight game and right back in this series.

It was a harsh but accurate evaluation. Belief can prevent this level of embarrassment, but in its present state San Antonio clearly struggles to master Golden State's multiplicity of weapons.

San Antonio is heading home with its backs against the wall. We're playing very possibly the best team in the league.

Jonathon Simmons scored 17 of his 22 points in the first half as the lone bright spot for the Spurs.

Everyone else? Well, they didn't - and that included the team's other star, big man LaMarcus Aldridge. The Spurs retired Bowen's number, leading some to say Popovich's rant was hypocritical. "He can't be timid". "He turned down shots in the first quarter". He can't do it.

"And because he's has got this history, it can't be, 'Oh this was inadvertent, he didn't have intent, '" Popovich said of Pachulia. Scoring has to come from someplace. Whether it's for himself or teammates. He's got to do it.

Mills declined to comment on the play and deferred to Popovich, who was not shy about calling out Pachulia. If Leonard is unable to go next game, don't be surprised to see the Warriors' versatile rookie soak up at least some of Iguodala's Game 3 minutes.

Andre Iguodala sat the game out because of soreness in his left knee.

Golden State shot 56.2 percent overall (50/89) and 48.6 percent (18-37) from beyond the arc.

With or without Leonard, San Antonio doesn't have a chance to make this series competitive if it thinks it has no chance.

The Warriors haven't played since May 8 when they swept the Utah Jazz 4-0.

ESPN showed Kerr speaking with his squad during halftime of tonight's game against the Spurs.

"Somebody's got to teach him if the California Highway Patrol tells you to move, you move over", Popovich cracked. I'm like I've got five cops around me, so I just stopped.
