Warriors take down Spurs 136 - 100 in blowout

Rita Gibson | 19 May, 2017, 19:29

Showing no signs of letting up, the lead reached double digits after a long three-pointer by Curry put Golden State ahead 20-10 with 4:52 left in the first quarter.

Golden State is looking for it to keep working for them as they prepare for Game 2 Tuesday at 7:30 pm at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors scored the games' first five points and cruised to victory, taking a 2-0 lead in best-of-seven series.

Kevin Durant added 16 points and Draymond Green provided another strong all-around performance with 13 points, nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks.

"We've got to get our guys ready to play a tough Game 3".

Duncan has been a regular at Spurs practice this season and showed up before a pivotal Game 5 versus the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the playoffs. "Two games, now we're going back home so there are still a lot of reasons to believe". The 36-point winning margin is the second-biggest of this year's Playoffs, following the Spurs' 39-point win over Houston last week.

Jonathon Simmons was the Spurs' leading scorer Tuesday, putting up 17 of his 22 points in the first half.

"It looked pretty collective to me. We're just trying to contest a shot". We felt sorry for ourselves. "All I care about is the next game, and we'll see how they come out". Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said, "We didn't come to play". Capitalizing on the absence of Leonard, the Warriors' perimeter players had a field day.

Leonard was held out after he re-injured his left ankle Sunday.

Trump confirmed when he was asked if Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent senator from CT was a top candidate, CNN reported. Lieberman added that McFarland "and General Mike Flynn will form a very strong leadership team at the National Security Council".

Pachulia is listed as day-to-day with a bruised right heel suffered in Game 2.

Golden State quickly established its pass-happy, up-tempo style to take the Spurs out from the opening tip.

Golden State is just the fifth National Basketball Association team to win its first 10 playoff games in a given postseason.

He re-aggravated the ankle in game one on a three-point shot attempt by stepping on a teammate's foot who was sitting on the bench. Before this game, the Warriors had six days of rest. Simmons completed a 3-point play 31 seconds later, beginning a stretch in which the two sides would alternate scores until Durant followed a David West layup with a jumper at the 3:04 mark to increase Golden State's lead to 64-35.

Popovich had no guess about Leonard's status for Game 3, saying it would likely be decided as late as Friday or Saturday. "You've got to time that perfectly if you want to hurt somebody".

"I have no idea. As a group, they just let themselves down", Popovich said. And then an SUV pulls up, and I hear them over the loud speaker: 'Hey, you, in the Range Rover. You've got to understand exactly the things that we did better tonight.

"I don't think we believed", he said. He also worked out with point guard Patty Mills.

For the second game in a row, Steve Kerr was able to address the Warriors at halftime.

Golden State shot 67 percent in the first half and set a franchise playoff record with 23 assists to open up a 72-44 lead.
