    Playing basketball seemed trivial to the Spurs following the death of Erin Popovich.

    They competed as best they could Thursday night. It just wasn’t enough against Golden State [url=http://www.officialflames.com/authentic-adidas-mark-giordano-jersey]Mark Giordano Jersey[/url] , again.

    Kevin Durant had 26 points, nine rebounds and six assists, and the Warriors beat San Antonio 110-97 for a 3-0 series lead over the Spurs, who were still reeling from the death of Gregg Popovich’s wife.

    ”It was a perfect setup for a letdown,” Golden State forward Draymond Green said. ”I don’t say that to be insensitive at all to the situation. We all take this basketball stuff serious and we want to win, but when you start talking life and death, a game doesn’t matter. But yet we still wanted to come out and try to win the game.”

    The Warriors can close the first-round series with a win Sunday afternoon in San Antonio in Game 4.

    ”It’s hard to think about that for me, personally, right now because there is other stuff bigger than basketball,” Spurs veteran Tony Parker said.

    The Spurs were playing a day after the death of Erin Popovich, who passed away after battling an undisclosed long-term illness. Erin and Gregg Popovich were married four decades and have two children and two grandchildren.

    San Antonio did not air a video tribute or hold a moment of silence for Erin in an apparent attempt to make the game as routine as possible for its players, but that was impossible.

    Coach Popovich was not in his customary position roaming the sidelines, choosing instead to be with his family. San Antonio assistant Ettore Messina coached the team in Popovich’s place.

    ”We are all hurting [url=http://www.officialdevils.com/authentic-adidas-cory-schneider-jersey]Cory Schneider Jersey[/url] ,” Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili said after the morning shootaround. ”We want to be next to Pop, we want to support him, but we’ve got to go out there and compete today. But, for sure, we are toiling. It’s not an easy day to be here.”

    Ginobili and Parker said it was tough to play basketball following Erin’s passing, but the team’s goal was to compete and play with the grit Popovich has always demanded of them.

    Parker, who said Erin and Gregg were a mother and father to him when he entered the league as a 19-year-old, lived up to those wishes. Parker, who averaged 2.0 points in the first two games, finished with 16 points in 17 minutes.

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

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

    ”This was about what I expected,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. ”First half they were getting after us like they did in Game 2 and we stayed with it, we had some bursts. The whole point is take care of the ball and defend over 48 minutes and things should work out.”

    Already on the edge of their seats for the first home game of the playoffs [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/zach-brown-jersey]http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/zach-brown-jersey[/url] , fans erupted when Rudy Gay threw down a one-handed dunk over Golden State’s JaVale McGee. The cheering was nearly constant as the Spurs scored the game’s first six points before the Warriors began to settle in.

    Durant and Klay Thompson shot down San Antonio’s chances.

    Thompson added 19 points, including 3-for-6 shooting on 3s.

    Golden State closed the first half on a 20-9 run to eliminate a five-point deficit and take a 52-46 lead. Durant had 17 points in the first half to counter 10 points each from Gay and Parker.

    Gay finished with 11 points.

    The Warriors opened 1 for 14 on 3-pointers. Golden State finished 10 for 32 on 3s.

    ”Well, when the 3s are not going, we’ve just got to continue moving the ball and getting open looks,” Thompson said. ”But if we’re getting open looks, they’re eventually going to fall, and we rely on our defense when we’re not making shots. Our defense can be a constant for us, shouldn’t always dictate how hard you play.”

    Green added 10 points, six rebounds, seven assists and four blocked shots.

    TIP-INS

    Warriors: Durant rolled his ankle at midcourt with about 4 1/2 minutes remaining but rose on his own after remaining on the court for less than a minute.

Warriors G Stephen Curry did not play but sat behind the team’s bench as he continues to rehabilitate a sprained knee. Curry is expected to return for the second round, if the Warriors advance. … McGee started after being listed as questionable with a bruised left quadriceps. He had six points and four rebounds in 15 minutes.

    Spurs: Messina was coaching his first NBA playoff game [url=http://www.officialavalanche.com/authentic-adidas-mikko-rantanen-jersey]Mikko Rantanen Jersey[/url] , but he has won more than 10 titles in the Euroleague, Russian SuperLeague and Italian League. … Dejounte Murray had nine points and four assists in 16 minutes.

    FOND MEMORIES

    Kerr has been a friend of the Popovich family since his days playing for the Spurs at the turn of the century. In fact, Kerr grew so close with Erin Popovich that he almost got his longtime friend in trouble.

    ”Erin was sort of the balance that Pop needed,” Kerr said. ”I still remember when he traded me to Portland in 2001, he called me up to tell me the news (and) he said, `I don’t think I can go home, because Erin is gonna be so mad at me for trading you.’ ”

    The Latest on the NBA Finals from Game 4 (all times local):

    11:30 p.m.

    The Warriors have romped to their second straight NBA championship, beating Cleveland 108-85 to finish a four-game sweep.

    It’s the third title in four years for the Warriors and the second one they won in Quicken Loans Arena, where their 2015 title was secured. The Cavaliers won the rematch the next year but Golden State has handled them easily to finish the last two seasons.

    Stephen Curry scored 37 points and Kevin Durant had 20 for the Warriors, who won their sixth NBA title to tie Chicago for third place behind Boston and the Lakers.

    LeBron James checked out with 4:03 remaining in what could have been his final game in Cleveland, with fans chanting ”MVP! MVP!” as he went to the bench after congratulating some of the Warriors.

    11:20 p.m.

    Stephen Curry is up to 37 points and seven 3-pointers as the Warriors lead 102-76 with about 5 minutes left in Game 4.

    Kevin Durant has a triple-double and needs a strong finish to continue his streak of scoring 25 or more in every NBA Finals game he’s played. He’s done so in all 13 games.

    The Warriors are poised to finish off the first NBA Finals sweep since San Antonio in 2007 – a romp that also came at the expense of LeBron James and Cleveland.

    11 p.m.

    With one last third-quarter onslaught, the Warriors are up big heading to what could be the last 12 minutes of the NBA season.

    They lead Game 4 of the NBA Finals 86-65 as they try to sweep their way to a second straight championship and third in four years.

    Golden State outscored Cleveland 25-13 in the third quarter, the period when the Warriors either turned around or blew open so many games during their run to the NBA Finals.

    10:55 p.m.

    Another big third quarter for the Warriors has them headed toward the title.

    Golden State leads 81-63 with about 3 1/2 minutes left in the period. It’s the largest lead of the game.

    Stephen Curry leads the way with 25 points and Kevin Durant has 18.

    Meanwhile [url=http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/peyton-manning-jersey]Peyton Manning Jersey[/url] , LeBron James has picked up a fourth foul while the Cavaliers try to stay close enough to make a comeback a possibility.

    10:40 p.m.

    ESPN has released a statement on Hall of Famer Hubie Brown and his condition after he got hurt before Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

    Brown has been covering the series as an analyst on ESPN Radio.

    The network says Brown ”was injured when he bumped his knee on a table during pregame. He’s in good spirits and being treated by the medical staff on site. He hopes to return to the ESPN Radio booth if there is a Game 5.”

    The Warriors aren’t cooperating on that front: They’re up 11 in the third quarter, as they try to sweep Cleveland for the title.

    10:20 p.m.

    Golden State is one half away from a second straight NBA championship.

    The Warriors have a 61-52 lead over Cleveland at halftime of Game 4. Golden State led by 11 in the first quarter, fell behind midway through the second, and went into the locker room with momentum after Stephen Curry made a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the period.

    Curry has bounced back from his struggles in Game 3 with 20 points, making four of the Warriors’ nine 3-pointers. Andre Iguodala has three off the bench.

    Golden State is trying to celebrate on Cleveland’s home floor for the second time, having wrapped up its 2015 title at Quicken Loans Arena.

    LeBron James has 16 points for Cleveland.

    9:55 p.m.

    Cleveland has battled back from an 11-point deficit to regain the lead in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

    The Cavaliers went ahead 39-38 when LeBron James finished off a fast break with a basket midway through the second quarter. That gave him a game-high 13 points.

    Golden State controlled the first quarter but the Cavaliers outscored the Warriors 14-4 to open the second.

    Klay Thompson picked up a third foul for the Warriors and remained scoreless.:55 p.m.

    9:40 p.m.

    Stephen Curry had 12 points and the Golden State Warriors made six 3-pointers in taking a 34-25 lead after one quarter of Game 4.

    Curry made two 3s after hitting only one in Game 3. He already had more points than in that 11-point outing.

    Andre Iguodala also made a pair of 3-pointers after entering early when Klay Thompson went to the bench with two fouls.

    Kevin Love scored nine points and LeBron James eight for the Cavaliers.

    9:35 p.m.

    Stephen Curry already has as many baskets in the first quarter of Game 4 as in all of Game 3.

    Curry made his first three shots, including an off-balance 3-pointer when he was trying to draw a foul as he shot. His nine quick points sent the Warriors to a 13-3 lead.

    He was only 3 for 16 in Game 3, including 1 for 10 behind the arc.

    The Cavaliers surged back with eight straight points to cut it to two points midway through the period.

    9:20 p.m.

    ESPN Radio broadcaster and Basketball Hall of Famer Hubie Brown was injured shortly before Game 4 of the NBA Finals and was taken to a nearby hospital for an apparent knee injury.

    The 84-year-old Brown was checked out by doctors in the arena, and will not be working the game as an analyst. There was no immediate word on the status or severity of his injury.

    Brown is a two-time NBA coach of the year and two-time Emmy nominee who is working the finals for the 17th time as a radio and television analyst. His broadcasting career goes back to the 1980s, and he’s been with ABC and ESPN since 2004.
