We felt sorry for ourselves.
Leonard aggravated his left ankle injury on Sunday in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series when he landed on Pachulia's foot after taking a jump shot early in the third quarter.
"This is (baloney). It can't be, 'Oh, this was inadvertent; he didn't have intent, '" Popovich said less than 24 hours after Pachulia, attempting to defend a 3-pointer, stepped underneath Leonard and caused an ankle injury that will keep the Most Valuable Player candidate out of Game 2, and perhaps longer. He didn't pull over, since he's the coach, until they got increasingly angry with him and multiple cops began to surround him, so eventually Brown decided he should wait for the Spurs to pass.
Golden State quickly established its pass-happy, up-tempo style to take the Spurs out from the opening tip.
With Iguodala out, the Warriors will have to lean more heavily on Matt Barnes, Ian Clark and Patrick McCaw. He's been a little off this entire post season, but anything he contributes in Game 2 is essentially found money.
Suddenly, officers on motorcycles yelled for Brown to stop right before the gate to the stadium parking lot. The Warriors had 39 assists - the most by any team this postseason - including 30 on their initial 38 baskets. The Warriors, who struggled to score in the first half, shot 58 percent after Leonard left.
Popovich lashed out at Zaza Pachulia for the Warriors center's defense on Leonard, telling reporters Monday that the play was "dangerous" and "unsportsmanlike" and citing a past pattern of such actions by Pachulia.

"I have no idea".
"Somebody's got to teach him that when the California Highway Patrol tells you to move over, you move over", Popovich said. "I'd probably list him as questionable".
The Warriors should get another nice boost from coach Steve Kerr, who is well enough that he plans to travel with the team to San Antonio on Thursday. You still go to jail, I think, when you're texting and you end up killing somebody, but may have not meant to do that. Thank you for giving me a reason to watch the conference finals again.
Instead though, let's entertain the other possibility, venturing deeper into the crevasse to see how the Spurs can tap into their Game 6 Versus Houston mojo and improbably, hilariously tie this series up at 1-1. Patty Mills, playing in place of the injured Tony Parker, had another quiet night.
Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals was a tale of two halves, no matter how you spin it.
Warriors: Kerr attended his second game this series but again watched behind the scenes as he recovers from a May 5 procedure at Duke University to fix a spinal fluid leak.
