Monday night the Golden State Warriors were looking for yet another sweep looking to retain their undefeated status in this years playoffs. San Antonio will be without their superstar Kawhi Leonard out with an ankle injury. Chances are slim to none for a Spur win without Leonard. It would be a struggle against the Warriors even if Leonard was able to play. Golden State is quite frankly entirely to deep.

The first half was all Warriors leading at one time by 20 points. Golden State was in the lead 65-51 after two quarters completely dominating although San Antonio was playing about as hard as they could despite their limitations. Curry and Durant both had 18 points and for the moment were looking to cruise to yet another win and going undefeated into the championship series against, in all likelihood, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

At the end of the third quarter the Warriors had a 96-78 lead and were one quarter away from their 3rd straight NBA finals. San Antonio played hard but Golden State was just too much for them. Not a single fan left this game with the possibility of this game being Manu Ginobili’s final game after a brilliant career. The crowd showed a lot of respect and admiration for their beloved Spurs cheering wildly as they left the court for the last time this season.

The final was 129-115 and the Warriors were off to the finals. This was the best start in NBA history for Golden State as they continue to blow-up existing records. Curry would finish with 36 points and Durant with 29. It was just another in a long list of brilliant wins for the Warriors as they celebrated the trophy presentation at AT&T Center.

The finals will begin at Oracle Arena on June 1st.
