This year's meeting won't have as much juice as it would have last year, when the two teams had combined for 140 regular season wins, but it's still a tremendous matchup and gives this Warriors team, which has accomplished nearly everything, the rare chance at a first. Patty Mills is the third double-digit scorer and Jonathon Simmons is grabbing 1.5 rebounds. The Spurs last saw the NBA Championship in 2013 when they bested the Miami Heat. Golden State's offense has been even better in the postseason, scoring at 114.4 points per 100 possessions in going 8-0 so far.
For D'Antoni, being ousted by coach Gregg Popovich and the Spurs is nothing new.
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.
Trump says he's 'very close' to naming a new FBI director
A different attorney general, perhaps-hopefully he doesn't come from one of the 43 states that pick them in elections. John McCain's presidential bid in 2008 over Barack Obama, speaking at the Republican National Convention that year.
The Cavaliers await the victor of the series and if either one of these teams wants a chance of competing with Cleveland, they're going to have to figure out how to win on the road.
The Warriors are led by four All-Stars - Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green - and enter the conference finals with a ideal playoff record.
Though Harden posted a tally of 28.5 points, 8.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds during 11 postseason games, he wasn't almost as efficient, making only 27 percent of his three-point shots.

En el vehículo Nissan Versa que quedó con las llantas hacia arriba viajaban cuatro jóvenes de entre 18 y 21 años de edad. Una vez más el exceso de velocidad dejó una trágica historia.
San Antonio rookie point guard DeJounte Murray gave them 11 points, 10 rebounds and five assists off the bench (good for a plus-33 mark). In San Antonio, the thing that matters the most is the name in front of the jersey, not the name in the back. He likely will match up defensively on Kevin Durant but Draymond Green and Stephen Curry might be bigger keys. Mike Brown will again coach in his place. All-Star forward Kevin Durant was still sidelined with a knee injury he sustained on February 28. "I expect them to come away with one win, and it wouldn't surprise me if they get swept".
The Warriors and Spurs met three times in the regular season, with the Warriors losing the first two.
Collectively, they also made up for the absence of Tony Parker, their starting point guard, whose season ended when he ruptured his left quadriceps tendon earlier in the series. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 27.8 points and 4.7 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 16.8 points and 6.8 rebounds. There aren't a lot of spots on the floor to hide Manu Ginobili on defense in this series, but he proved in the last round that there still might be a few more basketball genius moments left in him. "They've dominated the west, so that's the team to beat and it's gonna be a tough task for us for sure".
