JT's Monologue: NBA Playoffs, Gregg Popovich, Spurs, and Warriors

The Golden State Warriors Have Shaken Off the Rust

The two had been married for four decades at the time of her death. Her death led to an outpouring of thoughts and prayers from across the National Basketball Association community.

Ettore Messina of the San Antonio Spurs before the game against the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center on January 17, 2018 in Brooklyn, New York.

The San Antonio Spurs have lost to the Golden State Warriors, 110-97 in Game 3 of their best-of-seven National Basketball Association playoff series.

If not for James' heroics in Game 2, the Cavaliers could well be staring at a potential sweep, with no magic elixir seemingly on the way.

The Warriors, seeking their third title in four seasons and fourth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals, lead the Spurs 3-0 in the best-of-seven opening-round series with game four Sunday at San Antonio.

A source familiar the situation said Messina will interview as early as the middle of next week, if the Spurs are eliminated by the Golden State Warriors by then.

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker says he has always viewed coach Gregg Popovich and his wife, Erin, as like his mom and dad.

Leonard missed all but nine regular-season games with a quad injury, and the Spurs finished with the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference at 47-35. "They've been who they are for the last 20 years for a reason".

Popovich has coached San Antonio since 1996, leading the Spurs to five National Basketball Association titles.

But the team has been as impressive as any in the playoffs so far.

He was an assistant for the Falcons from 1973 to 1979.

"We didn't do any contact, so he's not cleared for contact yet", coach Kerr said of Curry. Erin's father, Jim Conboy, was Air Force's head athletic trainer. Thursday offers San Antonio a chance to get back in the series on its home court.

Popovich ran the Spurs' practice Wednesday.
