Highlights of Tuesday's NBA game

Steve Kerr Wrote 'F*** It' on His Sneakers as a Player

And while San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich explained the size of the loss as the result of an nearly team-wide timidity, the Warriors played at a level that nearly no team would have been able to match, let alone one with a shredded roster. Popovich defended it when his guy was the accused back in 2006, and now Bowen himself has chimed in, claiming that what he saw Pachulia do in Game 1 seemed to be intentional.

"Lead with your foot close-out is not appropriate".

Golden State quickly established its pass-happy, up-tempo style to take the Spurs out from the opening tip.

Tune in tonight at 9pm on TNT for Game two of the Western Conference Finals! This injury is actually the same that kept Leonard out of Game 6 of San Antonio's elimination game against the Rockets. "Who gives a damn what his intent was?" With the Spurs losing their star player it seems like the Warriors may be advancing to their third straight National Basketball Association finals. I don't agree with the calls that I'm a dirty player.

"Obviously a very unsafe situation for players, and the referee luckily stayed on that play all the way until the shooter landed and the foul was called on the play". "We'll see what the MRI says, but obviously he won't play tomorrow", Popovich said.

Popovich wasn't about to guess whether Leonard would return in time for Saturday's game, saying it could be Friday or even game day before that would be determined.

Yankees to honor Jeter between games of doubleheader Sunday
The teams will play a doubleheader on Sunday, when the Yankees will honor Derek Jeter before the second game. It was Jeter, along with a core group of Yankees, that helped bring five championships to the Bronx.

Sale strikes out 12, Red Sox beat Rays 6-3
Kevin Kiermaier whacked a two-run homer off Chris Sale Saturday in the Rays' 6-3 loss to the Red Sox. That was only the third game Sale, the Lakeland-born lefty, had allowed two homers to lefty hitters.

"It's going to be a dog fight", Brown said.

Prior to Tuesday's Game 2 Mark Jackson said the play was dirty.

The All-Star point guard who shot 8-of-13 from the field, buried six 3-pointers and scored 15 of his total points in a 33-16 first-quarter breakaway, as Golden State took full advantage of the absence of Kawhi Leonard, who missed the game with an ankle injury.

However, Leonard tweaked the ankle when he stepped back into the Spurs' bench while attempting a 3-pointer early in the third period. Both Kerr and Brown emphasized a better start on both ends in Game 2 to control the tempo from the opening tip.

Jonathon Simmons, starting in place of Leonard, had a team-high 22 points for the Spurs, who fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series for the first time since being swept by the Phoenix Suns in the Western semifinals in 2010. Andre Iguodala did not suit up on Tuesday due to what the team labeled as left knee soreness.
