Grieving Popovich will not return for Spurs' playoff game four

Steve Kerr Stephen Curry

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will begin modified practices on Saturday as he steps up his rehabilitation from an MCL sprain. It is a tricky proposition.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich will sit out Saturday's Game 4 of the Spurs' first-round series against the Warriors.

There is also the reality that an era, not just a season, could end with a Spurs loss Sunday.

While San Antonio extended its 21-year streak of reaching the playoffs, its 47 wins marked the fewest during that run, excepting the lockout-shortened 1998-99 campaign.

The Spurs had an emotional start, but could not sustain it against the talented Warriors.

For the Israeli public, this means that the clouds of war hover over - but haven't darkened - the Independence Day celebration. The Israelis have also signaled to Russian Federation , however, that they will not allow it to constrain their operations.

Ginobili says family is first, and it's hard to prepare for Thursday night's Game 3 against Golden State. Reports suggest that the fractured bond between the front office and forward Kawhi Leonard, who will miss the rest of the postseason with a quadriceps injury, could be beyond fix.

LaMarcus Aldridge led San Antonio with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Playing basketball seemed trivial to the Spurs following the death of Erin Popovich. Erin Popovich died this week at the age of 67.

Golden State leads the series 3-0. Kevin Durant turned and clapped in unison with the fans. They only had three other players in double figures. "I know nobody has ever come back from 3-0, but lots of people have come back from 3-1".

They do, but it'll hardly be the first perfunctory game the Warriors have played this year - save for a handful of contests, you could argue that their entire regular season was played with a "let's get this over with" attitude.
