The San Antonio Spurs were absolutely rolling early in this one. The defense was suffocating, the offense chugging along on all cylinders. At one point, the score was 44-19.

And then the Warriors caught their stride, courtesy of Zaza Pachulia.
Pachulia appeared to take an extra step to plant under Kawhi Leonard on a 3 point shot, taking the Spurs MVP out for the remainder of the game.

Dirty foul? Y9u be the judge. Either way, Spurs down 1-0 after leading by 25. Talk about a blow to team morale.
Warriors win it, 113-111.
