The San Antonio Spurs had opportunity and the lead for most of Game 3 of the Western Conference Semi-finals of the NBA Playoffs this weekend. Golden State, however, had other ideas on how this Mothers Day showdown would unravel.
“We put ourselves in a position to win the game and it’s frustrating because we feel like we gave it away,” PF Tim Duncan said.
The Spurs, who led the majority of the game, fell flat as the game slipped into overtime. The Warriors were led by PG Stephen Curry who was working on a sprained ankle and was not even sure if he was going to play per Head Coach Mark Jackson.
“He said, ‘I’m going to give you what I got, coach,’ That’s not the language he speaks. I knew right away that he was not 100 percent,” said Jackson, “Once again, it’s that same spirit flowing through that locker room that refuses to quit.”
Game 4 is on Tuesday May 14th at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. Tickets are still available!
