GS simply doesn't have anyone who can stop Aldridge.

Spurs defence has been awesome. Flying into the passing lanes

Wow I can't believe the undermanned and under-talented Spurs are hanging around with the Warriors. Was expecting GSW to be up by 20 right now.
B-but Pop isn't a good coach right...??  ::)

I'm just happy for Rudy Gay :).

Update - Golden State, predictably, has upped their defense and the Spurs are crumbling. Shocking ::).

Not yet! The Spurs are actually showing up tonight in Oracle Arena. I thought they have been demoralized after Game 1's performance.

Would love to watch Houston and Golden State have an early playoff exit. Sick of these diva teams.

I wish that I could agree with you insofar as the Spurs are concerned, but they were still in the locker room during the 3rd quarter, for the most part. I'd love to see a split, here, obviously, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the Warriors bury them from here on out. Sigh.

Still can't stand "Boom Boom" Pau Gasol, btw.

I didn't expect that closeness to be maintained - more hope than anything.

Seeing people say Pop owed all his success to Timmy or whatever annoyed me though

Agreed. Do people forget just last year the Spurs were in ECF blowing out the Warriors in Oracle at halftime with a hobbled Kawhi? Plus they still won 47 games this year. No Kawhi. Pop is a mastermind, best coach ever.

That didn't happen?

They were blowing the Warriors out with a healthy Kawhi. Kawhi got hurt, the Warriors stormed back and ended up sweeping them.

I just don't understand as to what happens at halftime. It's like they completely forget the game plan/what had worked so well for them during the first two quarters at the start of the third. Sigh.

You'd think guys who get paid millions a year would recognise that effort is pretty key to winning

No. Kawhi had already sprained his ankle twice before. That is why he missed the end of game 5 against Houston, and game 6. When he fell on Zaza that was the third time he had sprained his ankle, and he was out for good.

Made Zaza's action even more blatant and disgusting.

Hate that bum so much. Anyone who deliberately tries to hurt players (plural being key) deserves the utmost misfortune

With TeRo not committing a single turnover during his 40 game 1 minutes, he is now at a spectacular playoff career minute/TO ratio with 416/12.
That would translate that he losses a ball every 34,7 minutes.
For a guy that nominally plays at PG 70% and SG 30% that is a testament how well he protects it.

He does owe a drink to JB for picking his ball up at 4:38 remaining in the 3rd. Jump to 4:50 mark.

That's a lucky number 13.

Who wants to make a bet that Victor Oladipo gets into foul trouble in game 2?
