Highlights of Tuesday's NBA game

A Game 3 return for Leonard in the series of Warriors and Spurs still offers a flicker of hope, but nobody really wants to be down for a couple of games to these Golden State, no matter what their recent history with 3-1 leads might suggest.

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

"Lead with your foot close-out is not appropriate. (Curry) gets everybody else open once he gets it going like that", said Kevin Durant, who added 16 points to the Warriors' cause.

This doesn't sound like something that is going to keep Pachulia out if/when the Warriors show up for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but they're not as vulnerable as they were a year ago in the event it does.

Leonard had helped San Antonio gain a commanding 78-55 lead in Oakland when he limped off with an ankle injury. Yes manslaughter. The example he gave was someone texting while driving who kills someone and should still go to jail. Have you ever heard of manslaughter?

"First of all, if you're looking at Mark, do you think I had to encourage him for dessert?"

"Obviously a very unsafe situation for players, and the referee luckily stayed on that play all the way until the shooter landed and the foul was called on the play".

"That play? I've watched it and, yeah, I thought he took an extra step", he said.

The San Antonio Spurs appeared to be coasting to an easy victory over the Golden State Warriors in Game 1, but then it all went awry.

Popovich said if Leonard remained in the game and San Antonio lost, he would go to practice the next day and "move on".

"It's going to be a dog fight", Brown said.

The Spurs players haven't responded to Zaza Pachulia's actions with the same ferocity as Coach Pop, but that feeling has no doubt resonated in the locker room. In Game 2 on Tuesday night, Golden State was up 20 by the time the smoke cleared from pregame introductions.

Australian starting point guard Patty Mills had a forgettable game, missing four of his six shots for five points, while All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge was also quiet with eight points. Both Kerr and Brown emphasized a better start on both ends in Game 2 to control the tempo from the opening tip. Swingman Andre Iguodala, a valuable player off the bench, did not practice Monday and is listed as questionable for Game 2 because of knee soreness.
