Thompson, Warriors shoot down Spurs

Klay Thompson scored 34 points, Stephen Curry added 22 and the Golden State Warriors withstood another furious rally by the San Antonio Spurs for a 100-91 victory Wednesday night to even their series at one game apiece and snap a 30-game skid in the Alamo City.

Steph Curry is better than all of us

It was all Golden State Warriors last night in Game 2 of their Western Conference Semifinals match-up with the San Antonio Spurs. Klay Thompson led the way with an offensive explosion alongside shooting assasin Steph Curry. Prior to the game, the Spurs said they weren’t going to change their approach to guarding Curry, which didn’t seem like a good idea. Would it even matter...

Golden State Warriors End Losing Streak in San Antonio; Beat Spurs 100-91

The last time the Golden State Warriors beat the San Antonio Spurs was way back in 1997; a streak that spanned 30 games. Wednesday night that streak came to an end. Klay Thompson scored 34--29 of them in the first half--and Stephen Curry chipped in another 22 to lead the Warriors to a 100-91 victory over the Spurs. Once again it looked like the Spurs were going to make a...

Warriors Too Naïve, Too Good of Shooters To Fall to Spurs Again

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said after the game that it was “polite” of the Golden State Warriors to have Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry switch off games in which they were on fire from the field. Wednesday night was Thompson’s turn. The Warriors defeated the Spurs in Game 2 of the second round of the Western Conference playoffs, just two nights removed from...

Momentum Could Lead Golden State Warriors To Western Conference Finals

Influenced by a span of eight games? You’re damn right I am. This isn’t a long road swing in December, though. This is the NBA Playoffs and the Golden State Warriors are blessed to have the newly-minted Splash Brothers running the back court. San Antonio Spurs big man Tim Duncan has nearly triple the NBA service time Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have combined. That hasn...

Would you trade Rajon Rondo for Stephen Curry?

So, we have all watched the wonderful Stephen Curry take off and make himself a current super-star player in the NBA Playoffs. He dazzles us with his amazing shooting ability and his array of different shots that he makes. If you are a basketball fan, you love everything that he is doing right now. So the question is, if the Warriors owner called you, the GM of the Boston Celtics...

Spurs-Warriors Preview

The confident aura the Golden State Warriors are giving off right now might be the only thing brighter than those yellow shirts every home fan is expected to be wearing again for Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night at ear-piercing Oracle Arena. Maybe for good reason, too. The Warriors have outshot, outrebounded and outhustled the Spurs through the first two games...

Matchup of the Game For Game 2: Spurs vs. Warriors

The matchup of the game for Game 2 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals will be between San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry. In Game 1, Curry went off on the Spurs scoring 44 points on 18-35 FG shooting (6-14 in 3-point shooting) and was the main reason Golden State had a 16 point lead late in the game that later disappeared...

Warriors party like it’s 1997, end 16-year curse with Game 2 win in San Antonio

The last time the Golden State Warriors won a game in San Antonio, Tim Duncan was a senior at Wake Forest, Stephen Curry was 8-years-old, while his father, Dell, was averaging 14.8 points per game for the Charlotte Hornets. 30 games and 16 years later, the Golden State Warriors finally have another win in San Antonio, staving away a second straight comeback attempt by the San...

Ginobili's 3 in 2nd OT lifts Spurs over Warriors

All it took was one shot from Manu Ginobili to undo Stephen Curry's monstrous performance. Ginobili hit a 3-pointer from the left wing with 1.2 seconds left in the second overtime Monday night to lift the San Antonio Spurs to a 129-127 win over the Golden State Warriors and Curry, who put up 44 points in the opener of the Western Conference semifinals.

Spurs-Warriors Game One: The Game Of Any Year

I really couldn't imagine that the NBA playoffs were going to get better in the second round. Warriors vs. Nuggets was up-tempo magic between two highly likable, flawed teams. Dubs-Spurs was going to be a simple slapdown of the young'uns; Golden State hadn't won in San Antonio for 29 games. They clearly weren't going to do that against a rested and experienced Spurs...
