The Golden State Warriors pulled off a victory that almost didn’t happen. Cruising into the fourth quarter with an 18-point lead, the Warriors took their eye off the ball to watch the clock.
“We were up 18, and I was celebrating, having a ball, and then it seems like two minutes later all of a sudden it’s a single-digit game and every possession mattered again,” center David Lee said.
This season, the Spurs split the series between the two clubs 2-2 but if history is a prelude to the upcoming series…anything can happen. Point 1: The last time these two clubs met in the playoffs was the first round of the 1991 playoffs where the 44-38 Warriors upset the 55-27 Spurs. Point 2: The Warriors have not won on a San Antonio floor since early 1997.
All in all, this should be a fantastic series and tickets are still available. So come on Spurs fans, get out and support your San Antonio Spurs and their Drive for Five!
