The Spurs traveled to the West Coast locked in a tight series with the Golden State Warriors, having surrendered home court advantage after a game 2 loss in San Antonio. Tony and Manu both said it: This game was a must win. Boy, did the Spurs play like it. With energy and intensity, the Spurs regain homecourt advantage on the backs of Tony Parker and Tim Duncan.
Every time the Warriors made a run, the Spurs answered. Tenacious defense and systematic offense ruled the night, and the Spurs emerged victorious. They flipped the table, holding the Warriors under 50% shooting and 100 points for the first time in the series, while shooting above 50% themselves. They have a short layover, and will play Game 4 Sunday afternoon at 2:30 pm, STTOTTM.
