With 4:49 remaining in the fourth quarter, the San Antonio Spurs were less than five minutes away from taking a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Golden State Warriors Sunday in Oracle Arena.
Then, the Spurs held an 80-72 lead over the Warriors, but a change was coming for the silver and black. In those final 4:49 minutes the Spurs went cold and were outscored 12-4 as the Warriors forced overtime.
Once overtime began, the Spurs fell silent as Jarrett Jack and the Warriors outscored the Spurs 13-3 to win game four 97-87 and tie the series at two games apiece.
"They're a bunch of Warriors,” said Warriors coach Mark Jackson after the game, “no pun intended." Jackson’s Warriors had an early five point lead but then the Spurs were able to build their lead up to 11, where they held a 7-9 point lead for a majority of the game.
"One thing I know,” said Jackson of his team, “this team will not lay down. They won't quit. It looked dark. It looked awfully dark, but we found a way."
