Spurs set up Warriors meeting as Harden and Rockets crumble

Season series: Spurs won, 2-1. In the regular season, the two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year scored 25.5 points per game on 48.5 percent shooting. It took us a minute to figure it out to get up to that game speed after this little break.

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard is expected to face the Golden State Warriors on Sunday in the opener of the Western Conference finals, a source told ESPN's Michael C. Wright. And the last time these two faced off, in March, the Warriors beat San Antonio by double digits (110-98). They will be the Spurs next mission to complete.

Brown, last a Spurs assistant in 2003 who has said he hopes to do something to repay Popovich someday for the opportunity, certainly learned some X's and O's but it went far beyond that to observing how Popovich has adapted to players now and continued to be a top-notch communicator.

The Spurs are playing in Houston and with the Rockets in need of a win to stay alive, you better believe that they will be doing everything to get the win.

A $100 bet on the Warriors to win the series would win $6.25.

Dejounte Murray chipped in with 11 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals off the bench and Pau Gasol had 10 points with 11 rebounds for San Antonio. Harden went 2-for-11 from the field, scoring 11 points and dishing seven assists in an embarrassing loss that had many questioning his MVP credentials.

Golden State's path to the this series has been anything but challenging. The Dubs have also had the luxury of enjoying a week rest in advance of their showdown against the Spurs.

But around newcomer Kevin Durant, things have smoothed for the Warriors since.

Leonard started the fourth quarter but was pulled by Popovich with 5:37 remaining in the period when it became obvious Leonard couldn't push off his left foot.

But with time to prepare a new game plan without Leonard, the Warriors are expecting a different type of challenge in Game 2.
