Head coach Gregg Popovich missed the game tonight following the tragic death or his wife Erin on Wednesday. Gregg and Erin were married four decades and have two children and two grandchildren. She had been married to the long-time Spurs coach and new USA national team coach for 40 years. Finally, Anthony Davis and the Pelicans have been playing out of their mind in the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs and JT calls out the "fake news" that New Orleans has any chance against Golden State. You've got to go out there like it's your last game, and it could possibly be if we don't do it right.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr knows better than to give the Spurs bulletin-board material.

Golden State closed the first half on a 20-9 run to eliminate a five-point deficit and take a 52-46 lead.

After Game 3, many Spurs players said it was tough to maintain focus against the Warriors.

"We've still got two more games to win, so we're not celebrating anything", said Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry. "I think the team is ready to play and compete". Averaging 25.7 points, Thompson is shooting a scorching 63.3 percent and is 65.0 percent from the three-point line.

With a victory, Golden State will advance to face either New Orleans or Portland. Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson have been holding them down-24 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists for Durant, 27 points for Thompson in Game 1; then 32 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists for Durant and 32 points and 5 assists for Thompson.

Mirotic, acquired in a midseason trade after DeMarcus Cousins' season-ending Achilles tear, made 12 of 15 shots, scoring on everything from quick-release 3-pointers to cutting dunks and fast-break layups.

Ginobili says family is first, and it's hard to prepare for Thursday night's Game 3 against Golden State.

Game 4 will be on Saturday.
