Warriors vs. Spurs NBA TV Schedule: TNT
If the Spurs are going to win this series, they had better figure out how to win this game and win it by a comfortable margin. They most certainly don’t want to go back to Oracle Arena, in spite of the fact that they outplayed the Warriors for the majority of the two games out there, facing elimination. San Antonio really flexed its muscles as the better of these two teams as we saw it in Games 3 and 4, and we think that it is going to do the same in Game 5. This would be a 3-1 series if not for the fact that the Spurs just went flat out cold from the floor at the end of Game 4, especially in overtime when just three points were scored. If that game is played at home, it’s a much, much different story. Here’s the sad truth for Golden State, though. G Stephen Curry is hurt. G Klay Thompson just played 50+ minutes for the second time in this series. So did F Harrison Barnes. Barnes won’t score 26 in a game again in this series in all likelihood, and G Jarrett Jack probably isn’t coming off of the bench to score 24. When you’re playing the Spurs, the deeper the series goes, the more trouble you’re in. Their depth eventually wears virtually everyone down, and we have to think that it is going to do just that in Game 5 on Tuesday night as well.
