Warriors hold off late Spur run, advance to second round

Share

With grieving head coach Gregg Popovich still on leave of absence, the San Antonio Spurs salvaged a bit of pride as they won Game 4, 103-90, to successfully avoid a sweep at the hands of the Golden State Warriors. Durant scored a game-high 34 points and also put up 13 rebounds. Over the last three years, Green is averaging 16.8 points, 11 boards, 6.8 assists, 0.8 blocks and 1.5 steals in the nine closeout games during the playoffs.

Maker, after stunning games in the past two wins in Milwaukee, had just two points, no blocks and fouled out in the final seconds.

The Spurs are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 following a SU win of 10 or more.

Sometimes, it works so perfectly that you wonder why the Warriors don't score 150 points every game and why Kevin Durant doesn't score about 100 of those himself. Golden State was very good in the first three games of the series and wants to lock this series down so they can get some rest in an attempt to give their stars a breather along with the impending return of Stephen Curry.

Las Vegas didn't give the Spurs much of a chance: While San Antonio entered the playoffs with 100-1 odds of winning an National Basketball Association title, the Warriors had 6-5 odds. "So these last two games, he's been rebounding like a beast", Thompson said. San Antonio's tough defense and a strong fourth quarter was just enough to help them squeeze out a win at home but it's hard to imagine them winning Game 5 on the road with similar numbers.

Golden State had a 3-0 advantage in the series and the Spurs on the ropes. He went 5-of-10 from the field, including 3-of-5 on three-point shots. "If he doesn't play, we're prepared". Aldridge leads in rebounds with 8.5 while Mills tops in assists with 3.3 per game.
