San Antonio Spurs, Golden State Warriors in for Intriguing Series After Game 1 Classic
Stephen Curry is a superstar, there’s no arguing that. But even his 44 points and 11 assists couldn’t top a game-winning three by Manu Ginobili in double overtime at the Alamo.
The San Antonio Spurs got almost 20 points from five different players, including a double-double from Tim Duncan and a near triple-double from Tony Parker to hold off the Golden State Warriors for their 30th straight victory over Golden State at home. The Warriors were on a mission and played admirably, especially after allowing the Spurs to come back from a small first-half deficit, but their inexperience showed down the stretch.
The most important part is San Antonio defended home court in Game 1 of this extremely intriguing Western Conference Semifinal series. However, the Spurs showed their age in having to overcome a sloppy first half, so except the younger, more energized Warriors to push hard in Game 2 in hopes of heading back to Oakland with the series knotted at one game apiece.
Of course, the Warriors’ chances of winning this series are greater if they take more games to double overtime considering the Spurs are an “old” team. However, when San Antonio gets 22 points from young guns like Danny Green, the Spurs are almost unbeatable. Even then, San Antonio is probably looking ahead to the Western Conference Finals considering the Oklahoma City Thunder will be without Russell Westbrook if they get past the Memphis Grizzlies, so don’t count out Golden State, even if they go down 0-3.
