Curry's 36 points leads Warriors to sweep Spurs | 129-115

Rita Gibson | 24 May, 2017, 17:12

Durant and Curry each had 18 points in the half to lead the Warriors, while Anderson led San Antonio with 10 points.

They will appear in the NBA Finals for the third consecutive year and will face the victor of the ongoing Eastern Conference Finals showdown between the Boston Celtics and the defending NBA champions Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs will take on the Boston Celtics Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m. Cleveland now leads the series 2-1.

The Warriors now have a week off until the NBA Finals begin on June 1st.

San Antonio's only lead came on the opening possession with a left-handed scoop shot from Manu Ginobili, who started in what could be his final game with the team.

It was the third consecutive series sweep of the 2017 post-season for the Warriors, who are now 12-0 in the play-offs heading into the Finals.

He sacrificed the fight for a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League in the final weeks of the season to concentrate on a cup. But there is a shadow hanging over this final". "I'd like to say something about what happened in Manchester ", he said .

Kerr did travel with the team to San Antonio for the clinching victory and Warriors owner Joe Lacob says Kerr can take as much time as he wants in his return to the team.

Golden state: Curry (36 + 6 assists), Durant (29, 12 rebounds), green (16 + 8 rebounds + 8 assists). Patty Mills scored 14 points and Jonathon Simmons added 13 points.

The Spurs' best player Kawhi Leonard, already battling an ankle injury, was airborne attempting a jump shot when Warriors' centre Zaza Pachulia placed a foot in Leonard's landing zone. And the second one is that under the rim, they don't stand a chance when there is one big man who knows how to play two-on-two, like LaMarcu Aldridge is. Once they extend Curry this offseason, they'll lose a key bench component - like 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala - but surely some veterans around the National Basketball Association will want to play for the league minimum to get a ring (like David West).

The Spurs' fortunes in the series against the Warriors took a dramatic turn in the third quarter of game one when they were up by 20 points. Golden State held San Antonio, Utah and Portland to 102 points and averaged 9.2 steals per game. "So I feel bad for him all the time. They're way, way more than just their talent". I ended feeling better than the way I started.

As Lacob put it: "I feel like we have some unfinished business from a year ago". At the end of the day it's a good win for us, and it's hard.
