Was an interesting postgame locker room and you got the feeling a lot of the guys think this team will look quite a bit different next season. Tony Parker was the first one out of there and onto the team bus. Saw some hugs and lots of handshakes in there. This team wasn't hanging its head in defeat, and it shouldn't have, given all it has endured this season. And I can't help but wonder how much Kawhi Leonard would have helped them had he been healthy.

Warriors forward Draymond Green closed his press conference with a message to Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, who is mourning the death of his wife, Erin. Said Green: "When I look at life, when somebody pass away, we tend to think we're there for one day or two days and when we float away and think, like, their problem [goes] away. So I just want to send my love to Pop and his family, again. It was kind of a thing the first day it happened and then, like, it's gone. That probably don't leave for him so much. Love Pop and I send my prayers and best wishes to him and his family."

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili on his future: “I've been contemplating retirement forever. Nothing has changed. I just don't know. I'll let a month, two months go by and then I'll see how I feel. I'm not the type of guy that makes decisions on the fly, when you're upset, hurt or whatever. I usually let it sink in and see how it feels."

Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry told The Undefeated on playing the Warriors in a second-round series: "Our guys have a hunger and they see an opportunity here and I think we'll play at our highs level and compete like crazy and then whatever happens from that we're willing to accept. I just say we just got to be able to compete to the point where we give ourselves an opportunity to win."

For the most part Stephen Curry has been more engaged than usual during the timeout huddles. It could be a sign that he's getting closer to his return. He was sitting behind the bench in the initial stages of rehab, but now he's sitting with his teammates.

Give the Warriors credit for the D they're playing, but poor shooting continues to doom the Spurs. They're 16 of 52 on FGs and 6 of 23 from range. LaMarcus Aldridge is 0 for 3 when defended by Kevin Durant tonight, and 1 of 6 for the series.

Dwyane Wade says he's not going to start thinking about retirement for a few weeks or months. He says his first priority is spending time with his family.

Klay Thompson buried a jumper at the buzzer to end the half and then begins running around with his hands up. He rarely shows that much emotion. Stephen Curry just laughs. Golden State leads San Antonio at the break, 49-38.
