Forward Andre Iguodala, who is dealing with a sore left knee, scored seven points to go along with six rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes.

Pachulia also missed Game 3 after suffering a right heel contusion in Game 2 when he landed awkwardly on a dunk.

Warriors coach Mike Brown said Pachulia's absence was not determined by the ire Spurs fans have for the 6-foot-11 center.

Pachulia and his family have received death threats from fans who blame him for Leonard's absence after his controversial close-out that San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich called "dangerous" and "unsportsmanlike."
