Nothing much has gone right for the San Antonio Spurs in the first three games — all definitive losses — to the Golden State Warriors in their Western
Conference first-round playoff series.
Now , with the prospect of a second consecutive four-game playoff sweep by Golden
State, everything has to go right for the Spurs to even extend the series past
Sunday afternoon’s Game 4 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
San Antonio will be behind the eight ball even before the game tips off as the team announced Saturday that coach Gregg Popovich will again be missing from
the sidelines as he remains with his family in the aftermath of his wife’s death
Popovich did not coach the Spurs during their 110-97 loss to Golden State in Game 3 on Thursday, handing those duties over to first assistant Ettore
Messina will also be at the helm Sunday as San Antonio tries to stay alive and push the series to a fifth game Tuesday in Oakland. But even those chances
are slim, and it’s all but a given that the Warriors will win the series and
move on to the conference semifinals.
The Spurs lost Thursday because they didn’t shoot well, a theme throughout the first three games of the series. San Antonio shot 42.5 percent from the
field and made only 7 of 33 from 3-point range. That poor performance from
beyond the arc came after a 4-for-28 showing from long distance in Game 2 on
“Our guys focused in and we came in and we played,” said Spurs All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who led the team in Game 3 with 18 points and 10
rebounds. “It’s been the same thing. We just aren’t making shots that are
“They’re (Warriors) doubling and doing their things. We have open shots, but they just aren’t going in. Our guys are competing, following the game
plan Mike Remmers Color Rush Jersey , and trying to give ourselves a shot, but when don’t make shots, it’s always tough.”
Tony Parker added 16 points off the bench for San Antonio in Game 3, bit most of those points came in garbage time, when things were already out of hand.
The teams could not have had a more contrasting series over the first three games, as for everything the Spurs have done wrong, Golden State has done right.
It’s been a totally dominating performance so far for the defending NBA
champions, even without guard Stephen Curry — who is out rehabbing a knee
Kevin Durant led the Warriors in Game 3 with 26 points on 9-for-17 shooting, nine rebounds and six assists. Klay Thompson added 19 points , and Shawn Livingston hit for 16. In all, six players scored in double figures
for Golden State.
Thompson said the Warriors’ success in the first three games has been predicated on their willingness to go the extra mile on defense.
“We rely on our defense when we’re not making shots,” Thompson said. “Our defense can be a constant for us and dictate how far you play. If we get open
looks, they’re eventually going to fall.”
Durant and Livingston rolled their ankles in the fourth quarter of Game 3, adding some suspense, at least on the injury front, for Sunday’s game.
“They’re going to be OK,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant and Livingston. “Shaun’s was probably a little worse than Kevin’s. Both sprained
ankles, but I think they’ll be all right.”
It’s Super Bowl ad time again. Advertisers of all stripes are vying for the attention of the 111 million
viewers expected to tune in. The goal is to be the most-talked about ad over the
water cooler – or Slack chatroom – come Monday morning.
From Steven Tyler de-aging for Kia to Amazon’s imagining of different voices for Alexa , here are 10 ads that are likely to be talked about. And if you’re not interested
in tuning it to watch the big game on Sunday, you can stream all of these ads
ahead of time.

The internet giant’s founder, Jeff Bezos, stars in this 90-second comedic ad showing different celebrities including chef Gordon Ramsay, actress Rebel
Wilson, singer Cardi B and actor Anthony Hopkins subbing in for the voice of
Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa.

Anheuser-Busch dispenses with its usual Clydesdales and puppies and instead goes with a 60-second ad that depicts, to the tune of ”Stand By Me,” the
company’s program to provide water to areas in need.

Bud Light
The beer brand’s recent ads have centered on a Game of Thrones-like universe that uses the meaningless-but-catchy phrase ”Dilly Dilly.” Now, in a 60-second
ad running in the second quarter Eric Sogard Milwaukee Brewers Jersey , the brand introduces ”Bud Knight,” a heroic character who is ambivalent about helping out in a battle.

The soda maker strives to include everyone in its 60-second ad: people of different ethnicities, someone in a wheelchair and a person who uses the
they/them pronoun are all shot at various locations in Mexico clutching or
drinking different varieties of Coke.

Doritos & Mountain Dew
The two Pepsico brands have linked spots that show a lip-sync battle between Peter Dinklage, who lip syncs a Busta Rhymes song as a representative for
Doritos Blaze, and Morgan Freeman, who lip syncs a song by Missy Elliott for
Mountain Dew Ice.

Procter & Gamble’s air freshener tackles toilet humor with a 30-second ad airing in the second quarter. It purports to be a documentary about Dave, whose
”bleep don’t stink.” The kicker: Since your Super Bowl party guests are a bunch
of not-Daves, you might want to take other precautions against bathroom

The automaker has enlisted Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler (who last popped up in a Skittles Super Bowl ad two years ago) to promote its Stinger
sports car. In the ad, he drives backward so fast that he gets younger thanks to
computer-generated magic. In a nod to advertising tropes Sam Darnold Jets Jersey , the ad also contains a subliminal message if you watch it backward; Kia helpfully provides this version online.

Michelob Ultra
The Anheuser-Busch light beer brand has 30-second ads in the second and fourth quarters starring Chris Pratt . In one he runs and does yoga while
singing along to ”I Like Beer,” a remake of a country song from the 1970s.

The soda maker calls back to its past Super Bowl advertising efforts with Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Celtics basketball player Kyrie Irving and
Cindy Crawford in a 30-second ad airing right before the Justin Timberlake
halftime show.

The maker of car floor mats shows footage of its new factory being built in a 30-second ad in the first half of the game. On-screen text reads: ”At
WeatherTech, we built our new factory right here in America. Isn’t that the way
it’s supposed to be?” It’s the fifth consecutive year WeatherTech has advertised
during the Super Bowl that all of its operations are in the United States.

This story has been updated to correct the name of the car in the Kia ad. It’s Stinger, not Stringer.
