Warriors, Spurs series filled with familiar story lines

Kawhi Leonard may have sat out the Spurs' game 6 win over the Houston Rockets due to the left ankle injury he suffered in game 5, but with the Warriors awaiting him in the conference finals on Sunday, it appears Leonard will be good to go.

San Antonio will now face No. 1 seed Golden State in the Western Conference Finals. "Very tough to go against them in any series, but I think a little bit different against the Golden State Warriors right now". San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills (8) talks with guard Danny Green after Green was called for a technical foul during the second half in Game 6 of the team's NBA basketball second-round playoff series against the Hous. The Rockets couldn't find the open looks to launch their trade mark treys, and when they did manage to penetrate, Gasol and Aldridge got in the way, and it either led to shot clock violations, altered shots or turnovers. Houston was already down 50-29 when Harden took his first shot midway through the second quarter. I felt like we've been to hell and back in just three hours.

Leonard, San Antonio's leading scorer, injured his ankle when he inadvertently stepped on Rockets guard James Harden's left foot while chasing a loose ball with 5:37 left in the third quarter of Game 5.

Harden, an Adidas athlete, had a forgettable game in the 114-75 throttling of his Houston Rockets by the San Antonio Spurs at the Toyota Center in Houston.

Trevor Ariza led Houston with 20 points with five rebounds, and Clint Capela added 15 points and 12 boards in the defeat. But Golden State happens to be the No. 2 overall defense, only giving up 0.5 more points per 100 possessions than the Spurs.

"I really just didn't have a rhythm at the beginning of the game", said Harden, who averaged 28.5 points and 8.5 assists during the playoffs.

The series begins in Oracle Arena on Sunday afternoon, a 12:30 p.m. local tip, on ABC.

But neither is a Washington team that pulled out a one-point win in Friday's Game 6, becoming the first team to stave off elimination on its home floor this postseason.

"I don't know who's going to be guarding those guys", Westgate sports book manager Jeff Sherman said. San Antonio won the best-of-seven series 4-2.

According to a point spread vs moneyline conversion chart I found from The Wizard of Odds (great name), these odds are like an National Football League team being 17-point underdogs (so, say the Browns playing the Patriots in New England).

With this highly-anticipated game just around the corner, experts are starting to give their picks.
