The last time the Golden State Warriors won a game in San Antonio, Tim Duncan was a senior at Wake Forest, Stephen Curry was 8-years-old, while his father, Dell, was averaging 14.8 points per game for the Charlotte Hornets.
30 games and 16 years later, the Golden State Warriors finally have another win in San Antonio, staving away a second straight comeback attempt by the San Antonio Spurs in the AT&T Center, winning 100-91 and tying up the series at one win apiece.
"I truly believe that trials and tribulations are transportation for where you're going. Game 1 made us better. We didn't panic. We made plays,” Warriors coach Mark Jackson said.
While the Spurs were able to come back from a 16-point deficit in Game 1 to get the in in double overtime, they did their best yet again but fell short.
After the Warriors were up by 19 points in the third quarter, the Spurs went on a 14-2 run, with Kawhi Leonard taking advantage of mismatches and the Spurs matching the Warriors’ intensity.
