The Spurs fought valiantly, but could never close the gap on a Warriors squad that appears to have found its stride. Dejounte Murray paced the Spurs with 22 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists while Steph Curry led the Warriors with 26 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists in a 121-99 romp.
The Spurs got off to another rough start, quickly digging themselves a hole and going down 13-4 just 4 minutes into the game. The Warriors kept the pressure on and seemed poised to break the game open with a series of Steph-centric screening actions that confounded the Spurs’ defense. Unable to contain Curry on the perimeter and with LaMarcus Aldridge providing little to no resistance at the rim, the new-look Warriors put together an electric run in the middle of the 1st quarter that bore a passing resemblance to the offensive inevitability of their 73 win squad from 5 years ago.
