NBA -- Too much Spurs, too many turnovers wear down Warriors


PhilBoxing.com




SAN FRANCISCO -- After a 5-0 start, the Golden State Warriors have dropped two in a row, including a 113-100 beating at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

The Spurs jumped on the host Warriors early and took a 29-26 lead one quarter before seizing the half, 50-44. San Antonio built an 82-68 advantage late in the third quarter and then held off Golden State's 30-point fourth quarter burst to steal the road win.

Klay Thompson and Steph Curry paced the Warriors with 29 and 16 points respectively. Harrison Barnes submitted 22 and eight boards but it wasn't enough to overcome 20 turnovers than the Spurs parlayed into 21 points.

Making matters worse for Golden State was the stellar performance of San Antonio's Big Three.

Point guard Tony Parker finished with 28 points and seven assists. Manu Ginobili pumped in 17 and five dimes while Tim Duncan accounted for 12 points and 13 rebounds.

Golden State shot better from the field at 54.3 percent (38 of 70) but the Spurs shot more field goals (46 of 93 for 49.5 percent). Although they were out rebounded, 38-36, the Spurs won the assists battle, 28-23. And they had only eight turnovers, 12 less than the error-prone Warriors.

"I'm really proud of them. Back-to-backs are difficult for an older team, but I thought they really showed a lot of focus and played with a purpose," Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich told ESPN as he praised his chargers who also toppled the Clippers before facing the Warriors.

The Spurs improved to 4-3, while the Warriors dropped to 5-2 in the overall standings. (RM)
