The San Antonio Spurs (6-1) will look to put a stranglehold on their Semifinals series versus the Golden State Warriors (5-4) today in Oakland.
The Spurs are coming off an impressive 102-92 win over the Warriors in Game 3 in Oakland. Tony Parker had a monster game leading the team with 32 points and five assists. However, Parker was hobbled a bit when he took a knee from Jarrett Jack to his calf but should be good to play in Game 4.
Warriors' Stephen Curry also tweaked his left ankle in Game 3 and is a game-time decision for Game 4.
And as the Spurs look to take commanding lead over the Warriors, here are five things to watch for in Game 3:
• Tony Parker scored 32 points at Golden State in Game 3 which marked his 75th career postseason game to score 20-or-more points.
• The Spurs are 3-0 on the road in the postseason when leading after the first quarter.
• The Warriors haven’t won two series in the same playoffs since winning the NBA Championship in 1975.
• The Warriors have won seven of their last nine home playoff games.
• The Spurs are 3-0 on the road in the postseason when leading after the third quarter.

In tonight’s game three matchup between between the Spurs and the Warriors, San Antonio guard Tony Parker threw up (and successfully sunk, might I add) a ridiculous-looking circus shot at the end of the first quarter.
