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

The MVP candidate is considered questionable for Friday's Game 3, a must-win for San Antonio if it wants to have a chance against the two-time defending conference champs. Just grateful to be a part of the list. I'm not a dirty player.

Thompson hadn't heard he didn't make the All-NBA team. He joins Russell Westbrook, James Harden, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis on the First Team.

Davis barely held off Utah's Rudy Gobert for the first-team centre spot, finishing with 343 points to Gobert's 339.

The suit, which was obtained by San Antonio's KSAT-TV, alleges Pachulia acted "intentionally" and "maliciously" when he "invaded the landing zone" of Leonard, resulting in Leonard having to leave the game in the third quarter while the Spurs were ahead by 23 points.

Vasquez is arguing that, by injuring Leonard, Pachulia caused him financial harm as a Spurs season-ticket holder, one who "expects that members of the team he supports will not be targeted for injury", as quoted in the lawsuit filing, which you should read in its absurd entirety.

During the Warriors' win Sunday in the opener of the Western Conference finals, Pachulia rotated over to contest a long 2-pointer by Leonard near the Spurs' bench, closing out the move under the forward's feet.

He scored four points in seven minutes before suffering the injury and told ESPN after the team's 136-100 victory that he didn't know how serious it was.

"He can't be timid".

Just for fun, I'll choose a sequence in the first quarter. He can't do it. You got to be the aggressor, you've got to be sharp for 48 minutes. Unfortunately, you will be needing an authentication with your cable provider should you want to watch San Antonio Spurs vs.

But after a solid 28 points and 7 rebounds in Game 1, Aldridge vanished in the Game 2 rout, scoring a mere 8 points on 4-of-11 shooting from the field.

"I thoroughly thought that we had Game 1 and we had great momentum, but unfortunately Kawhi goes down in that game and the tide turned, but we still had our chances", Lee said. "I was trying to make the extra pass, but I have to score, too".

LEBRON James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are on the verge of making their second consecutive 10-0 start to the National Basketball Association playoffs when they face the Boston Celtics on Saturday.

"We did a good job of coming out, throwing the first punch", said Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue.

Here's a look at the other four teams that had the best starts in playoff history. Cleveland also has swept its first two playoff opponents this year as it enters the Eastern Conference finals with Boston, marking the first time a team has started out 8-0 in two straight postseasons.

The third All-NBA team includes Chicago's Jimmy Butler, Golden State's Draymond Green, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan, Washington's John Wall and the Los Angeles Clippers' DeAndre Jordan.
