The Warriors dispatched the Spurs on Tuesday night behind the efforts of Stephen Curry, who dropped 29-7-7 in a 136-100 victory.
Curry was 8-of-13 from the field, 6-of-9 from deep and also chipped in three steals. He got off to a hot start, nailing three deep balls in the first quarter and coming up just short on a three-quarter court buzzer beater that would’ve brought the house down. The Dubs had San Antonio doubled up very quickly and this one was never in doubt. The potential return of Kawhi Leonard could change the complexion of things back in Texas but for now it’s looking like a cakewalk. Golden State shot .562 from the field and hit 10 more threes than the Spurs, who were woefully outmatched without their MVP candidate. It’s been a bit of a resurgence for Curry, who has really kicked it into high gear this posteason. He’s back at his unanimous-MVP regular season level so expect him to keep on cooking.
