The 25-year-old told reporters that he would play in Game 6 shortly after the Spurs claimed a 3-2 edge in the series following a 110-107 win on Tuesday night.

"Everybody picked it up". But Gregg Popovich will try, and when the two teams have matched up over the past two seasons without either team resting their main players, the Spurs have tried to slow the pace down and limit the number of possessions available for the Warriors. "They played well at the offensive end with a lot of sense and defensively it was one of our best nights".

Despite Leonard's absence, the Spurs throttled Houston 114-75 in Game 6 at the Toyota Center to advance to their first Western Conference Finals since 2014.

While San Antonio fought through six games with the Rockets, the Warriors have been off since wrapping up a sweep of the Utah Jazz on Monday.

Kevin Durant doesn't care who is on the court for San Antonio, he knows that Popovich will have his group ready complete with a few surprises in the playbook.

Jonathon Simmons started in Leonard's place against the Rockets on Thursday night and scored 18 points.

The Spurs asserted their size advantage with a 60-37 rebounding edge throughout the game. No one will feel bad for us. "It is going to hurt and linger", said Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni. He did not attempt a shot until the 6:19 mark of the second quarter. In an appearance on SportsCenter, Smith said that he thought Harden looked like he had been drugged prior to Game 6 and called an investigation into the matter. But the Rockets also had trouble scoring in general, making just 28.6 percent (22 of 77) of their shots overall.

"Everything falls on my shoulders", he said. It's tough, especially the way we lost a game six at home. Twitter had a field day with Harden's awful performance.

Trevor Ariza led Houston with 20 points with five rebounds, and Clint Capela added 15 points and 12 boards in the defeat.

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).

Game 1 in the series is Sunday.

The NBA Western Conference Finals between San Antonio and Golden State will commence on Sunday, May 14, at 3:30 p.m. EDT on ABC.

San Antonio was up by 23 after the third quarter and scored the first seven points of the fourth to make it 94-64 and send numerous home fans streaming to the exits.
