The fallout of The Zaza Play, which undercut as promising a start to the Western Conference Finals as the Spurs could’ve hoped for, will be felt for at least one more game, with the announcement that Kawhi Leonard will probably miss Game 2. There’s a silver lining in that Leonard’s ankle sustained no structural damage, but there’s also discussion surrounding whether he should be shut down for the rest of the postseason or not, as Pop did with Tim Duncan.
It’s the type of murky situation that has fans wondering how deep into the crevasse they are. A Game 3 return for Leonard still offers a glimmer of hope, but nobody wants to be down two games to these Warriors, no matter what their recent history with 3-1 leads might suggest.
With him in street clothes, it’s highly likely the Warriors win big tonight. We saw how the Spurs’ fortunes turned in the third quarter, and a full game of that kind of uninspired effort will quickly turn Game 2 into a blow-out. If most stories indeed reveal themselves to be either comedy or tragedy, a rout would be a fairly bleak sign for a suddenly-wilting campaign.
Instead though, let’s entertain the other possibility, venturing deeper into the crevasse to see how the Spurs can tap into their Game 6 Versus Houston mojo and improbably, hilariously tie this series up at 1-1.
