Gregg Popovich blasted Zaza Pachulia on Monday, blaming the Golden State center for Kawhi Leonard’s ankle injury in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Sunday.

Pachulia closed out on Leonard to contest a jump-shot in the third quarter, and Leonard landed on Pachulia’s foot, rolling his ankle in the process.

“It’s a dirty play because you got to give a guy space, but I think it’s tough to judge whether someone is intending to harm somebody, and I don’t think that is the case,” The Vertical’s Michael Lee said on CBS Sports Radio’s Reiter Than You.

“I still think the Spurs would have lost that series, but they definitely would have won that game,” Lee said.

But I think that that game for sure – and the tenor of this entire series – changed once Kawhi Leonard had to leave.”
