Spurs MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard tweaked his already injured ankle on Zaza Pachulia's foot after the Warriors centre stepped under him on a jump shot in their series opener. Think Game 1 was tough?
"A two-step, lead-with-your-foot closeout is not appropriate", he said.
Leonard didn't return, giving Golden State an opening for an 18-0 run that keyed the comeback win.
"I don't know what is going to happen to Zaza", Bowen said, "but if that had been me, I know what would have happened: suspension".
And the loser of the bet will, as customary, wear a shirt and jersey of the winning team during the first game of the 2017 NBA Finals and share a photo of it on social media.
"[But] those thoughts came crashing down when Kawhi Leonard goes out of the game and they're up 23 points, and it looks now like a dramatically different series", continued Rose on Leonard's ankle injury. Who gives a damn about what [Pachulia's] intent was? You ever hear of manslaughter?
"All I care about is the next game, and we'll see how they come out".
North Korea missile launch tests Trump's China outreach
The missile, launched at a steep angle, reached an altitude of 2000km and travelled about 700km, landing in the sea west of Japan. But its arsenal is growing, so too the pace of its tests and its threats to carry out a seventh nuclear test.
Well, maybe it's not that bad but fans are asking for his suspension claiming Zaza fulfilled his only goal on the team by intentionally injuring Kawhi Leonard for the Warriors' benefit and carrying them through to the NBA Finals. And you want to know if our chances are less?
"I don't agree with the calls that I'm a dirty player". The play forced Leonard out of the game, and then out of Game 2. The play happened in front of the Spurs bench and Popovich was angry at the time and even more upset a day after San Antonio's 111-113 loss to the Warriors in Oakland.
"So I literally start to go, and I'm going to get in the far left lane to go through where we all go through, and a cop out of nowhere pulls in front of me and goes, 'Hey, you, stop!'" he said. After averaging more than 28 minutes over Golden State's first eight playoff games, Iguodala had two points and one assist in 10 minutes Sunday.
"It's the same play", Brown said. We saw how the San Antonio's fate turned upside down in the third quarter, and a full matchup of that kind of unimaginative effort will quickly turn the second game into a blow-out.
Meanwhile, Jonathon Simmons, who started in place of Leonard, led the Spurs with 22 points and shot 8-of-17 from the floor. Andre Iguodala did not suit up on Tuesday due to what the team labeled as left knee soreness.
The Spurs have not been able to adjust to life without Leonard.
