Curry drained a three-pointer with 1:46 remaining as the Warriors stretched their lead back to double digits after seeing it dwindle. They are confident again, doing dumb Warriors-y shit like opting for a Thompson three-point attempt instead of an easy layup on a 4-1 fast break to end the second half last night. The Spurs ripped off the game's first 15 points and sprinted out to a commanding 29-7 lead.

As they waltzed through Texas, scoring impressive victories over the Rockets and Spurs in the last two days, they drove that point home. Iguodala managed to keep the Warriors in the game and Curry and Thompson led the team to win the match.

"You get in that situation and you can say: 'OK, that's the night, '" Iguodala said of the early hole.

The Golden State Warriors overcame a slow start at AT&T Center to earn their first win over the San Antonio Spurs this season.

It artificially forced the Warriors into tougher games, to try out different rotation combinations, and to play more aggressively without worrying about incorporating Durant or getting him his shots. "We know we can get it going".

The team's final regular season game is on April 12 against the Los Angeles Lakers. He could even be back for the end of the regular season.

The Warriors aren't on the blistering pace they were previous year, and they're now without Durant, who has been out the past month because of a sprained medial collateral ligament and bone bruise in his left knee. The Spurs raced to a 33-17 lead in the opening quarter, matching their largest lead of the season after the first quarter. "I thought the guys showed great resolve and focus".

As in 2016, Golden State is closing in on home-court advantage for the postseason, with the San Antonio Spurs close behind. Then, to start the second, Matt Barnes and Ian Clark nailed 3s to build the momentum. They have solid on-ball options, alert help defenders everywhere, the league's best 3-point defense percentage-wise and Draymond Green, the likely Defensive Player of the Year, ready to strip and contest and cause trouble at almost every turn.

"That (Westbrook's performance) was one of the best", Magic coach Frank Vogel said.

After struggling at the beginning of the month, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are back to form shooting the ball at a high percentage.

Durant, who is four weeks removed from sustaining the injury in a 112-108 loss to the Washington Wizards on February 28, is expected to participate in non-contract basketball drills as he enters the next phase of his recovery.
