Spurs Beat Warriors In Double OT (VIDEO)

Relive San Antonio’s Game 1 comeback.

The term “instant classic” gets thrown around and abused way too often these days, but the second game of that caliber in this year’s Playoffs (see Bulls-Nets Game 4) went down last night. Steph Curry and his Golden State Sharpshooters, err Warriors, were minutes away from making a huge statement in Game 1 of this Western Conference semifinal series. Then all of a sudden, the shots that Golden State had soaked the net with all night started getting cozy with the rim and backboard instead. The Spurs, champions as they are, seized the opportunity to get back into the game. One epic comeback and two overtimes later, the Spurs inspired another “instant classic”—a Playoff edition Maximillion “Finish to Remember” mix for your viewing pleasure.

    SAS got a little over half of their points from 3s and FTs. I don’t see this happening again especially in Golden State. If GSW can steal Wednesday’s game they have a chance at taking this series.

    So? The big 3 struggled during the entire game and it was obvious all 3 of them were having a bad night. That, and the fact that they couldn’t find an answer to Curry until the 4th Q

    “They are who we thought they were….”…..

    They weren’t having a bad night, they were getting stopped. The younger and athletic Warriors had them on the ropes and then collapsed. If they can figure out how to end games GSW has a chance.

    No, they weren’t. Tony missed a bunch of open jumpers which he usually makes (The ones off the screen). Manu missed a bunch of shots which he usually makes. I agree Bogut was handling Timmy (even though Timmy missed a couple of easy shots), and at one point Thompson was playing good D on Tony… But the big 3 was still off and it was obvious.

    I really hate when yall post several articles about the same thing. This, should be combined with the other Spurs comeback article and the game winning shot article. I say this so we can have one big conversation about a topic, instead of 3 little conversations.

    Did you watch the game? If so, did you have yellow and blue tinted glasses on?

  • RayJr

    What’s the excuse now bc GSW dominated again?

  • RayJr

    Like I said…GSW stopped them and dominated again. GSW might take it in 5 now.

  • Caboose

    Yes you’re completely right. They’ll win 4 straight. Silly me.
