This is a rematch of last year’s Western Conference Finals. When Kawhi Leonard played, the Spurs were dominating up until his injury when Zaza Pachulia collided with him.

Leonard, along with Stephen Curry, did not play in this game. Curry is not expected to play in this series, while Leonard could return if he chooses to do so since his teammates question his injury.

Andre Iguodala received the start over Quinn Cook in Game 1 with Curry on the sidelines with an injury.

Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 27 points. He also had two rebounds, two assists, and one steal.

Thompson was one of five Golden State players, who scored in double-figures. Kevin Durant added 24 points, while JaVale McGee had 15 points and Draymond Green contributed 12 points.

Shaun Livingston also scored 11 points off of the bench.

The Warriors had 43 bench points. Livingston led the bench with those 11 points.

Rudy Gay led the Spurs with 15 points off of the bench. He also had six rebounds, two assists, and two steals.

Gay was one of three San Antonio Spurs, who scored in double-digits. LaMarcus Aldridge and Bryn Forbes scored 14 points each.

The Spurs had 59 bench points. As previously mentioned, Gay led the bench with 15 points.
