The NBA postseason is only a mere two week away and every game played from then on is critical. None showed how critical success was more than the San Antonio Spurs this past Sunday night.
The Spurs faced off against the Golden State Warriors during the night, and the Warriors came into the game winning twelve straight games previously. Unfortunately for the Warriors, the Spurs didn’t seem interested in their streak and ended up snapping it in a 107-92 win that night.
Even more impressive than the Spurs ending their streak is the fact that during the game the Warriors never had a lead in the game at all, in fact at one point they were behind by as much as 28 points. Much of the win can be attributed to Kawhi Leonard, an up and coming player for the Spurs who also ended up being the biggest thorn in the Warriors’ side. Fans like Sam Tabar know that Leonard ended the game by tying a career-high by scoring 26 points.
Tim Duncan and Danny Green also fared well for the night, scoring 19 and 18 points respectively. But more importantly than scored, the Spurs were able to send a strong message to other teams that night. The Spurs can very well play like they are the best team, especially considering that they’re the only team to have beaten the Warriors twice this season.
