OAKLAND Authentic Jason McCourty Jersey , Calif. — The San Antonio Spurs hope to take a second step on what would be an unprecedented journey in the NBA playoffs when they once again face elimination in Game 5 against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night.
No team has ever won a series in which it trailed 3-0, but the Spurs were able to stay alive at home with a 103-90 win in Game 4 on Sunday.
It was the first time in the Gregg Popovich era that the Spurs have as much as won one game after losing the first three of a series. They were swept in a similar situation last season by the Warriors in the Western Conference finals.
For the third game in a row, the Spurs will be coached Tuesday by assistant Ettore Messina, with Popovich having left the team after the death of his wife Erin last week.
The teams had different views as to what triggered the dramatic turnaround in Game 4. The Spurs had fallen behind at least 19 points in each of the first three games of the series but never trailed Sunday.
The Spurs cited improved shooting as one big difference. After connecting on a combined 20 of 83 (24 percent) on 3-pointers in the first three games of the series, San Antonio bombed in 15 of 28 (54 percent) in Game 4.
The result: A team that had been outscored 105-60 from beyond the arc for three games was able to turn the tables to the tune of 45-21 in the elimination game.
It was a team effort. LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol, Dejounte Murray and Manu Ginobili Michael Gallup Jersey Cowboys , who had combined to make just three 3-pointers in the first three games, dropped in a total of 10 when it mattered most.
“It was a do-or-die game,” explained Aldridge, a predicament in which the Spurs also will find themselves in Game 5. “Make it happen or go home, and I think every guy played with that mentality, that focus, and we ended up getting it done.”
Meanwhile Deion Sanders Jersey Limited , the Warriors weren’t even getting shots time and again early in the loss. They committed seven turnovers in the game’s first 5 1/2 minutes, fell behind by as many as 10 points in the first quarter and never caught up.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr didn’t like seeing it live and enjoyed it even less when he got back to Oakland and watched it on tape.
“Lack of focus to start the game was really the key,” he noted. “More than energy, it was a sense of purpose. And I take a lot of the blame for that. I should know better as a coach of a team that’s been up 3-0 plenty times — you gotta know you’re going into the lion’s den …
“Looking back at the tape, I should have taken a timeout three minutes into the game and broken a clipboard. More than that, I should have had them prepared pregame for what was coming, and I didn’t feel like I did a good job at that.”
The Warriors had similar early-game issues at home during the regular season. It helped produce a record as good on the road (29-12) as at home (29-12).
Even with Sunday’s loss Jaguars Authentic Jerseys , the Warriors have beaten the Spurs in 11 of their last 13 meetings, including both regular-season and playoff games.
If the Warriors win Game 5, they would advance to face the New Orleans Pelicans in the Western Conference semifinals.The Denver Broncos are staying in the Bowlen family after the team announced an agreement to buy back a portion of John Bowlen’s minority stake in the franchise.
The brother of majority owner Pat Bowlen announced his intention late last year to sell his non-voting interest in the team. His share of the team, which Forbes magazine values at .6 billion, is believed to be about 33 percent.
The Broncos didn’t say how much of John Bowlen’s share was bought back nor did they reveal the purchase price.
They said they’re expecting approval of the transaction from the NFL ”in the next few days.”
”This transaction further consolidates Pat Bowlen’s majority, controlling ownership interest in the Broncos while keeping 100 percent of the team in the Bowlen family. The acquisition of this share is independent of Mr. Bowlen’s succession plan that is being administered by the Pat Bowlen Trust,” the team said in a statement.
”John has been a great partner for many years Authentic Trenton Cannon Jersey , and we are very pleased he will remain a minority owner of the Denver Broncos.”
Pat Bowlen and his siblings bought the team from Edgar Kaiser in 1984 for million. Pat Bowlen later bought out his brother William Bowlen and sister Mary Elizabeth Jagger, making John the sole minority owner.
The team was placed in a trust when Pat Bowlen stepped down in 2014 because of Alzheimer’s. The trust is overseen by three people, including team president and CEO Joe Ellis, who has final say on day-to-day operations until one of Bowlen’s seven children can succeed him as controlling owner.
John Bowlen told the Denver Post last year that his intention to sell was not due to any discord with the club or the trust but was simply in his best interest financially.
Notes: The Broncos signed unrestricted free agent Clinton McDonald to a two-year contract Wednesday. The ninth-year defensive lineman has appeared in 97 career games and five playoff games with Tampa Bay (2014-17), Seattle (2011-13) and Cincinnati (2010). He had five sacks in 14 games with the Buccaneers last season.
