Oh. And his Spurs trail the Golden State Warriors 0-2 in the opening round of the National Basketball Association playoffs, with the series moving to San Antonio for the next two games, where he hopes the rims will be kinder and the defense will remain stout, at least long enough to avert the first opening round sweep since he became head coach in 1996.
The Warriors, probably the best third-quarter team in the league, down 53-47 at halftime, outscored the Spurs 33-22 in the third frame on their way to a 116 -101 victory to go up 2-0 in the series.
LaMarcus Aldridge was huge in the loss, producing a double-double with 34 points and 12 rebounds. As long as players like McGee, David West and Andre Iguodola continue to contribute, the Warriors will be extremely hard to slow down. San Antonio has been bad from the perimeter in the series and their inability to get reliable shooting from guys other than Aldridge has hurt them. "He insulted more than half of the Spurs' fan base, and no sign whatsoever of an apology". The Spurs were just 4-28 on 3 point field goal attempts for a percentage of 14.3.
The Warriors took care of business relatively easily and they certainly have all the momentum after dominating Game 2.
Kawhi Leonard's absence leaves the Spurs looking for a playmaker late in the game. Bet the Golden State Warriors -3 over the Spurs in game 3.

The teams soared past the total in Game 2 of the series thanks to Golden State's second half flurry and their ability to hit from the outside. To help the Suns bring all those pieces together and build chemistry on both ends of the floor, they will also be needing to hire a new head coach in which, according to Sidery, Atlanta Hawks' Mike Budenholzer emerged as one of the top candidates. Golden State will find a way to get their points and force San Antonio to play catch-up.
