Warriors become just the 5th team to start NBA playoffs 10-0

Curry, Warriors boat race Leonard-less Spurs, swipe 2-0 lead

They're up 2-0 in this series, and the Warriors are better, especially if and when the Spurs don't have Kawhi Leonard on the floor-and Leonard wasn't out there for Game 2 on Tuesday, so the revelation was not surprising.

"Steve (Kerr) told our guys we've got to come out and play with a sense of urgency from the beginning". For two quarters it looked like things could be interesting, but now it seems we're on our way to witnessing another Warriors sweep.

"It's a team game, so not that much", Aldridge said. Think Game 1 was tough?

That can be easier said than done, even for San Antonio's $20 million man.

"We've got a lot of experience and guys who have seen just about every sort of mix you can find in the National Basketball Association, so that's been the joy, also just sort of figuring out what works for us defensively with all the different moving parts we have", said West, a 14-year veteran who returns to San Antonio for Saturday's Game 3 of the Western Conference finals with his new team up 2-0.

Leonard or no Leonard, Popovich insisted the series is over if his team doesn't get an attitude adjustment. "The only way I can process this is I think it's not about O's and X's or rebounds or turnovers or anything like that". "I'm disappointed. You have to believe". I could be feeling way better.

Warriors: Kerr attended his second game this series but again watched behind the scenes as he recovers from a May 5 procedure at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak.

"We felt sorry for ourselves", Popovich said.

"I'm like, I've got five cops around me, so I just stopped".

Beauty sleep is a real thing, researchers find
Professor John Axelsson, co-author of the study, said people in the study were less likely to socialise with tired-looking women. The team discovered that the strangers successfully identified whether subjects on photos were sleep deprived.

Popovich has never been afraid to speak honestly with the media and questioning his team's intensity and belief they can win shows that.

A Livingston dunk, Ian Clark's three and a Klay Thompson conventional three-point lead ballooned the lead to 114-77 with 10:37 left in the game. He had four rebounds and two assists in seven first quarter minutes, highlighted by that dive, catch and dunk off a nifty Steph Curry assist. That would be the same margin at the end of the third quarter, which came to a close with the Warriors leading 106-75.

"It's fun to watch. It's going well, as well as it can go", center Pau Gasol said.

When you get to 10-0 in the playoffs, Stephen Curry was asked, can you not help but think about what if, and what lies ahead?

This is essentially the team, after all, that has loved the chase, that was motivated by the chance to catch the 1995-96 Bulls at 72 wins and either tie or break the mark for the best regular season ever.

"I don't think he needed to hear it, but just knowing that we all have his back is huge, especially at this juncture with the spotlight and the microscope that everybody's put on him", Curry said.

"It's the playoff. You've got to expect everything", Curry said. "Basically their whole thing is to give you space, and when you pull up, they just contest". One player specifically who saved his worst performance of the postseason for Game 2 against the Warriors is Lamarcus Aldridge. Only one other Spurs player made double figures - Davis Bertans with 13 - while LaMarcus Aldridge was restricted to just eight points.

While he didn't exactly say it, I feel Pop meant that, as we've seen so often this season, Aldridge has been timid.
