Game details including the start time and how to watch the Spurs Warriors game live streaming online are ahead. Despite Houston's success this season, Golden State is still the team to beat. Both teams are on shakier ground than they have been in years heading into this year's playoffs, despite being two of the more consistently elite National Basketball Association teams over the past five years. Golden State collected a hefty 51-30 advantage on the glass to help overcome 15 turnovers in the contest. "The first quarter, we looked like deer in the headlights".

Many took to Twitter to comment on Leonard's absence from the playoff game as the Spurs were decimated by the Warriors.

"I thought it was important to re-establish our defence, one way or another, win or lose", Kerr said. The Warriors have gone 7-10 since their March 8th victory over San Antonio, and Stephen Curry is not expected to play in the first round.

Now, Durant, Thompson and Draymond Green are all back healthy, and while the Warriors aren't almost as unsafe without Curry, they are still nevertheless risky.

"We understand we are not favorites", Ginobili said.

At 6-6, Spurs forward Danny Green seemed physically ill-equipped to defend the 6-10 Kevin Durant, who had 24 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

The San Antonio Spurs are the kind of team that could theoretically cause the Golden State Warriors some problems. San Antonio knows that they're going to have to come up with a better strategy in Game 2 on the offensive end.

The Trump administration said the same thing a year ago . "The global community was never honest with Syrians", he added. The response was an attempt to weaken Assad's capabilities, and make the prohibition of chemical weapons clear.

"I think we focused in on just trying to win every possession on the defensive side of the ball", Kevin Durant said. There are people who will say, 'I'd rather play the Warriors right now in the first round than the Thunder or the Jazz.

Miami led 60-56 at half-time but were unable to respond to a second-half onslaught from the in-form 76ers, who have now won 17 games straight.

Asked if this was a statement game, Iguodala (four points, seven rebounds, four assists) said, "Well, we're in the playoffs". San Antonio took only eight shots in the paint, according to Second Spectrum. The Sixers could end this one early with Embiid back in the lineup soon. "We know what it takes to win".

Andre Iguodala, the 2015 NBA Finals MVP, moved into the starting lineup for the 2018 edition of that "Strength In Numbers" mantra - and all those bright yellow T-shirts through the arena are there to back it. "So we'll fight as hard as we can in Game 2".

The Spurs tried to double-team Durant on Saturday. "Overreacting to a lot of things because we are so excited that we're in the playoffs and playing, obviously, the best team in the world".

When the Spurs did attempt to challenge Durant, he put on his playmaker hat, dishing out seven assists.
