Found May 17, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
And so the big red curtain closes on another Warriors season. Or maybe it was a big yellow curtain. At any rate, the Warriors’ stirring 2012-2013 campaign and an equally thrilling postseason run came to an end as the Spurs took Game 6, 94-82, and the series, 4-2, Thursday night in Oakland. On a night the Spurs didn’t get much from Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili (combined 4-of-22 from the field), the Warriors got even less from Klay Thompson and Andrew Bogut (stats? You’re better off looking at Kevin Ware’s broken leg). Stephen Curry did all he could to will his team toward somehow forcing a Game 7 in San Antonio on Sunday. He shook off a dreadful Game 5 by scoring 22 points on 10-of-25 shooting. Jarrett “Jared” Jack added in 15. Harrison Barnes contributed nine points but wasn’t the same after he probably sustained a concussion at the end of the first half on a scary fall that resulted in blood being spilled on the court and having to get stitches over his right eye. But all night t...
