And, with the Golden State Warriors going up 2-0 on the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference finals, savvy bettors will be taking a long, hard look at Spurs +1.5 first-half line for Saturday's Game 3 in San Antonio.
The Warriors outscored the Spurs 25-14 the remainder of the quarter, hitting the 100-point mark with a McCaw jumper to make it 101-70, 2:35 showing on the game clock and the outcome now well in hand.

The suit, which was filed on behalf of San Antonio season ticket holders and card shop What's On Second, claimed Pachulia acted "without excuse or justification, intentionally and maliciously invaded the landing zone of an opposing athlete, Kawhi Leonard", according to the San Antonio Express-News.
Since Leonard left Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors after re-spraining his left ankle, it has been all Warriors, as they made a 23-point comeback in the second half to win Game 1, then cruised to a 36-point victory in Game 2 with Leonard sitting on the bench.
Tottenham Hotspur blow Leicester City away
Harry Kane (four goals) and Heung-Min Son (brace) scored Spurs' goals while Benjamin Chilwell grabbed Leicester's goal. The latter then put the ball in the back of the net after some good build up but it was ruled out for offside.
Leonard has hurt his ankle multiple times in the past week.
They're up 2-0 in this series, and the Warriors are better, especially if and when the Spurs don't have Kawhi Leonard on the floor-and Leonard wasn't out there for Game 2 on Tuesday, so the revelation was not surprising. In addition to the lawsuit, they've also asked for a restraining order against the Warriors and Pachuila to keep them out of San Antonio, Texas.
The Leonard injury feels like it robbed us of a good series, one that would have challenged the Warriors if not knocked them off.
"LaMarcus has to score for us", Popovich said.

A quick aside: In an ironic twist, Pachulia sustained a right heel contusion early Tuesday night and may not play in Game 3. Oklahoma City went on to lose in five games to Miami in the NBA Finals. We didn't come to play. We miss him out there, but hell get healthy and in the meantime its up to the rest of us to stay ready.. So did Durant, who finished with 16 points after his huge 34-point Game 1, and Green, who had 13.
While Pachulia's Warriors teammates have all come to his defense, some, including Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, are calling it a dirty play that deserves punishment.
Tonight, its not what I expected. "I think (his preparation) was as well as it can go". I think he's one of the best players in this league, and I wish him all the best to get healthy.
"And you have to believe". "I know guys in the locker room have told him, 'As best you can, block out all noise because it doesn't matter".
For all the years West yearned to be part of the great San Antonio Spurs franchise, he finally got that chance last season. "Because if we don't we could end up losing the game".
Colorado towns hit with 3 feet of snow. Happy May
The winter storm warning is in effect until 3 p.m. on Friday for Denver and the urban corridor and 6 p.m. for the high country. Around 14 to 16 inches of snow has fallen in southeastern Wyoming from near Cheyenne to west of Laramie since Wednesday night.
We may get just 24 minutes of excitement by the time the Western Conference Finals are over. "There's nothing else to do". The series returns to San Antonio on Saturday, with Leonard's potential return as the only legitimate way to make this a series ... but since lineups for this contest lock on Wednesday, it would be extremely risky to include Leonard on any of your DFS teams.
