5 things to watch: Spurs vs. Warriors (WCF Game 2)
The San Antonio Spurs (0-1) will look to even up the West Finals in Game 2 versus the Golden State Warriors (1-0) but without their star Kawhi Leonard.
Leonard is doubtful for tonight's Game 2 with an ankle sprain after aggravating it in Game 1 when Warriors' Zaza Pachulia stuck his foot under Kawhi's foot on a jump-shot. Kawhi landed on Pachulia's foot and hurt his ankle in the third period. Leonard left the game only to not return.
The Spurs are coming off a 111-113 loss in Game 1. LaMarcus Aldridge had 28 points and eight rebounds in the loss while Manu Ginobili had 17 points off the bench.
And as the Spurs look to get the win without No. 2, here are five things to watch in tonight's game:
- The Warriors have nine-straight wins in the postseason.
- Stephen Curry has connected on at least one 3-pointer in all 67 of his career postseason games, extending an NBA record.
- The Spurs are 0-3 on the road when trailing after the third period.
- The Spurs are 3-3 when scoring 100-points or more on the road.
- The Spurs are 0-4 on the road when their opponent scores 100 points or more.
