Game 1 is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at 12:30 at Oracle Arena, with Game 2 set for Tuesday night at 6 p.m.

Curry said at this point, the Warriors won't be doing any double-takes regarding former longtime teammate David Lee coming off the bench for the Spurs. The Spurs improved to 16-3 when taking a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven series. The over is 211.5 points at -105, and the under is 212 points at -110.

Back in 2013, the Spurs were the second seed again while the Warriors were the sixth seed. They will be the Spurs next mission to complete. The Warriors won the NBA Championship after beating the Cavaliers in 2015, and then lost in seven games to the Cavs in 2016. While all the attention is on the superstars on Golden State, Green will likely be key in this series as he continues his postseason redemption tour.

The only team ahead of the Spurs was the Golden State Warriors, who clinched the West with a record of 67-15.

Popovich drew chuckles from the media with his one-word reply to a question about what the Spurs' basic approach would be against the explosive Warriors: "Pray".

The Spurs coach suggested that Leonard had not suffered a serious injury when he announced in full Popovichian form that the MVP candidate would not play hours before Game 6. San Antonio did drop the first game of the round to Houston, suffering a 126-99 loss, but their trail in the series would be short-lived. "I don't want to litigate what just happened". This is the first time that Spurs' head coach Gregg Popovich will be coaching against a team with this many regular season wins - 67.

Winners and Whiners have the Warriors winning at -10.5.

James Harden did not have an explanation for the Houston Rockets' forgettable elimination from the National Basketball Association playoffs.

The San Antonio Spurs had a strong regular season for the second year in a row.

"I try to keep things as simple as possible", he said.

"That's the mountain we've got to climb", D'Antoni said. Coach Quin Snyder has done a remarkable job getting them to a 50+ win team. LaMarcus Aldridge posted a double-double with a season high 34 points and 12 boards to lead the Spurs.

"I'll have to assume Leonard is 100 percent". I think the Spurs will give the Warriors more issues in this series than any team in the East would. In doing so, the Spurs reminded everyone of how risky they can be - with seemingly any combination of players in the starting lineup - and also set up the matchup that we have been waiting for in the Western Conference for three years against the Golden State Warriors.
