Golden State Warriors: Warriors Stun Spurs 110-98
- Updated: March 30, 2017
The Warriors came into this game with a 2.5 game lead over the Spurs for the top seed in the Western Conference. A win against the Spurs would pretty much lock up the best record in the NBA.
Early on, it was a total nightmare for Golden State. Behind the red-hot shooting from Danny Green, The Spurs jumped out to a 29-7 lead. However, it was the steady veteran presence from Andre Iguodala that hit a couple of key jumpers to cut the lead down to 16 at the end of the first quarter.
The Warriors bench, led by Iguodala, was huge in the 2nd quarter. The Spurs have the best bench in the NBA so it’s a huge confidence boost that Golden State’s reserves were able to keep up. David West had an incredible game as well.
The Warriors surged back and the Spurs only led by 3 at halftime. Right out of the locker room, The Warriors, in the blink of an eye, went on an 8-0 run to take a 5 point lead.
From there, the Warriors pretty much controlled the game the rest of the way, in what was a huge statement game for them.
