Warriors start fast, hang on for win

Warriors start fast, hang on for win

The Warriors - who could ultimately end up facing San Antonio for a place in the National Basketball Association finals when the playoffs get under way - looked to be in deep trouble as the Spurs raced into a 29-7 first quarter lead.

SAN ANTONIO - In their news release Wednesday afternoon updating Kevin Durant's rehab from a left knee injury, the Warriors said that they would "intensify his level of movement over the next several days". Since the two teams are going to finish 1-2 in the Western Conference, it would be Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

The story would change in the second half, Golden State came out with a march more than San Antonio, enough to win the third quarter by 30-20 and get ahead on the scoreboard, something that seemed unthinkable in the first quarter. Stephen Curry had 29 points and 11 assists, while Klay Thompson dropped in 23 points. With seven games remaining, Golden State has a two-game cushion, even if the Spurs are ideal.

They stretched their advantage to as many as 26 in the second half.

Considering they're playing without Kevin Durant, the victory was arguably the Warriors' biggest of the season. "I don't feel sorry for myself at all (but) the shot is just short and it's frustrating when you can't really follow through".

"We have what it takes to win all sorts of ways", Curry said. The Warriors (60-14) have won eight games in a row since a three-game losing streak that culminated in the defeat at San Antonio on March 11.

The guy who plunged the daggers into San Antonio was former Spur David West, who was fantastic in the fourth quarter and finished with 15 points. They're obviously having an unbelievable year. It was another statement win on this 8 game win streak. San Antonio is coming off a huge victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers and look like a team primed for a title run.

Golden Sate watched their led increased by 22 points at one point in the second quarter.

Steph Curry, in particular, appeared to find it initially hard to return to playing without Durant, hitting just 18 of 65 three-point attempts during that losing skid. That effort was part of another tremendous bench effort for the Dubs that included 14 points from Iguodala. Curry and Thompson scored 33 and 25 points, respectively, to lead Golden State to a 113-106 win over the Houston Rockets.

"Decisions of this kind do not merely implicate issues of player health and team performance on the court; they also can affect fans and business partners, impact our reputation, and damage the perception of our game", Silver stated in the memo. "We knew it was going to be tough". They proceeded to overcome a 22 point deficit on the road against their conference rival and competitor for the one-seed.
