And boy did they…especially in the third quarter.
Golden State takes game 1 over the Spurs, 113-111.
Rather surprising was the Spurs leading by 20 at the half.
But then Kawhi Leonard got hurt in the third quarter and that’s when the Warriors made their comeback. Leonard never returned to the game. Kawhi played 23 minutes and was a +21 on the day. I thought David Lee played real well too; he was a +15.
Steph Curry finished with 40 points and Kevin Durant had 34 for Golden State. Durant was a +14 on the day for Golden State.
Assists to turnovers for the Warriors was 22-19. Spurs were 19-17.
Warriors lead the best-of-seven western conference finals, 1-0.
