Game 1 might have been the best game that the NBA has seen thus far this season. The Spurs had to go on an 18-2 run over the course of the last four minutes of play to force the game to overtime, and then two sessions later, it was G Manu Ginobili who hit the three-point shot that ultimately won the game for the hosts. There were 205 total shots from the field in the game, and 56 three-point attempts between the two clubs. It was the exact game that Golden State wanted to play. G Stephen Curry scored 44 points, and he dished out 11 assists. He played 58 minutes and shot the ball 35 times. Is there a way that the Warriors can even get up to play Game 2? That’s the biggest question that we have right now. They had everything go exactly the way that they wanted, and they just didn’t have enough at the end. There are too many weapons here for San Antonio, and fatigue has to be a factor as well. Not only did Curry play 58 minutes, but F Harrison Barnes played 53. For the Spurs, no one played more than 48 minutes, and only G Tony Parker, G Danny Green, and F Kawhi Leonard played more than 40 minutes. There is still plenty of gas left in the San Antonio tank. We don’t know how much is really left for Golden State. Lay the points in Game 2.
