The San Antonio Spurs will once again be without MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard in the Western Conference Finals and Gregg Popovich says his star is not happy about it. Pop made the decision to hold Leonard out of the game as a precaution because of the forward’s ankle, which was injured in Game 1. The Spurs were crushed by Golden State in Game 2 of the series. That was after they held a lead for most of Game 1 before losing at the end. The Game 2 blowout defeat had Popovich figuring his team didn’t believe it could win without Leonard.
