The Spurs Avoid A Sweep By Toppling The Warriors In Game 4

Steve Kerr has revealed Steph Curry isn't out for another three weeks

Keep an eye on this trend in the next game (s) of this series.

San Antonio shot 44.7 percent (21/47) and made 7 of 15 three-pointers in the first half. Numerous members of the National Basketball Association family, including Ginobili and Spurs point guard Tony Parker, both expressed how much Erin meant to them, per Dane Carbaugh of NBC Sports. ".our guys did a little bit more, they really tried to win the game". We're turning it over. "We want to compete better", Ginobili said. They had the AT&T Center on its feet for those final, tense minutes in the fourth. He had 16 points total, including 10 in the 4th quarter in what could be his last game in San Antonio.

"We had a good night shooting". Those figures are well below their normal output. He played 42 minutes this game, shooting 4-of-16 from the field, 2-of-6 from long range and 2-of-2 from the charity stripe. Thompson, who has been hyper efficient all series came crashing down in Game 4.

That, and the Warriors already know the danger of losing closeout games. "You try to get the best shots possible, try to find the open team-mate". Quinn Cook could be the next man up - at least until Stephen Curry returns. They simply outplayed the Warriors in this one, and as ESPN's Chris Haynes reported, the mood in the Golden State locker room after the game wasn't quite what we've become accustomed to with this group. And despite Kevin Durant going for 34 points and 13 rebounds, it wasn't enough to finish off the Spurs. Too often he called his own number, and the offense was predictable and unimaginative. By halftime, the Warriors had committed 10 turnovers, while the Spurs only had 1. The Warriors did nothing to counter other than control the paint.

The Spurs won by a convincing margin, 90-103. They weren't focused. They messed around.

After a quiet first half, Durant started to play loud.

"In this kind of situation, sometimes, you are already fine with playing a good game", Messina said. But that's not true. The Spurs held a 30-22 first-quarter lead after holding the Warriors to a 9-of-25 clip.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors had a chance to complete the sweep and advance to the second round but they came out flat against the Spurs in the first half and found themselves fighting an uphill battle the rest of the way.

When asked if the Spurs wanted to win because it could have been possibly Ginobili's last game of his career, forward Rudy Gay responded with, "I mean, when you see Manu out there, y'all think he's going to retire?" Both players seemed to shed years off of their bodies, especially Parker.

Ginobli is one of the winningest players of all time in the playoffs, and his experience and determination to continue the series was unbelievable to see. Though a sweep would have been nice, the loss might actually help the Warriors. Hopefully the Warriors will learn from this, flush it, and get re-energized tonight at the Oracle.
