SAN ANTONIO – Get in the know, San Antonio. We have a Spurs fever and the only cure is a healthy Kawhi Leonard.

Sound the alarms

Yes, we cried a bit. After an amazing first-half, it looked as if the Spurs would do what many said they couldn’t: beat Golden State at home.

Alas, Kawhi Leonard getting injured in the third-quarter changed not only the course of the game, but probably the entire series. The Spurs fell in a heartbreaker, 113-111, and for the first time ever under Gregg Popovich, the Silver and Black lost a game after leading by 25 points.

Will Kawhi play on Tuesday? He said he doesn’t even know the answer to that one.

The bell tolls for Zaza

You could have fooled me, but I thought I saw Zaza Pachulia walking into Game 1 wearing a sickle and black robe. I guess we will never know, but Spurs and basketball fans alike did not hold back in calling Pachulia a dirty player after his foot somehow landed under Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard’s. And who could blame them.

Trump talk

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has been outspoken about President Donald Trump’s presidency in the past and Sunday morning, he spoke about Trump again during his Game 1 pregame press conference.
