Golden State Warriors, NBA

By Barbara Mason

The San Antonio Spurs had their work cut out for them Tuesday night as they took on the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena minus their superstar Kawhi Leonard. Leonard re-injured his ankle and it is not exactly known yet when he will be able to return to the court. Limping off the court in game one, Leonard went down when he landed on Zaza Pachulia’s foot. Not intentional nor dirty although you will no doubt hear conflicting stories from the Spurs side.

The Spurs were defenseless without Leonard. The Warriors got off to a quick start with Steph Curry leading the way. Golden State led by as many as 30 points in the first half. Curry finished with 19 points and Durant with 11 points through two quarters, Golden State was leading by the score of 72-44 going into the third quarter.. It was all Warriors in the first half of this game and there wasn’t a negative thing you could say about Golden State’s performance. The Warriors had taken the fight out of the Spurs and the second half promised to be more of the same unfortunately for San Antonio.

The Spurs needed to put some effort into what had been so far a less than competitive showing. It took the Warriors 3 1/2 minutes to score their first basket of the third quarter. Golden State had lost a bit of steam as San Antonio had made up a third of their deficit. The Spurs were putting up a fight now trailing 81-59. San Antonio had made up a bit of ground but still had a long long way to go. It was not long before the Warriors got going again stunting any effort by San Antonio to get back into this game.

The Spurs just could not get anything going as Golden State began to pull away leading 106-75 after three quarters. The starters got a nice rest as the bench took it home in the fourth quaBy Barbara Mason
