"LaMarcus has been a monster all year long", coach Popovich said after the game.

Once its season is over, San Antonio likely will have to make a decision about what to do with Leonard.
A pair of former Texas Longhorns put on a show on Monday night as part of the Western Conference playoffs.
"Let me answer your first question quickly". Popovich's political statements have remained constant since the 2016 presidential election.
"The organization has never said a word about any opinions that I might have, about anything, not one time".

In a tweet, Kovind said: "A delegation of MPs from YSR Congress Party led by Shri M. Rajamohan Reddy called on #PresidentKovind at Rashtrapati Bhavan".
This was obvious as Spurs coach Gregg Popovich joked about almost kicking the son of Warriors coach Steve Kerr, Nick, who's an intern with San Antonio, out of the film room ahead of the playoff opener.
The Spurs and (both) Kerr's are looking to wrap up Game 2 with a crucial victory, so it's not surprising that things turned serious once the playoffs really got rolling.
Kawhi Leonard's concluded end of the season hasn't done much to stop the imminent questions of his distance from the organization, reportedly in NY rehabbing his injury instead of with the San Antonio Spurs during this important playoff stretch.
